Fungal Infections

Fungal Infections 

Fungal Infections are the most commonly misdiagnosed infections across the United States. Most physicians are under the impression that only persons with AIDS, or an immunodeficiency can contract an invasive fungal fungal infection (IFI). This is a false presumption. Fungal infections perfectly mimic bacteriological infections. Few physicians when a patient walks through their doors ask any questions about a patients environment. This results in misdiagnosis, and what is referred to as chronic sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, as well as other chronic conditions. Unless your treating physician has a reason to suspect you have been exposed to fungus they will most likely treat your symptoms with antibiotics. Many people experience temporary relief, but relapse quickly. As with any infection, if left untreated fungal infections become worse and the symptoms more severe.

The American Centers for Environmental Science and Health knows that anyone can contract a fungal infection or an invasive fungal infection (IFI) regardless of age, or immune system status.
