Yes, I saw this a couple of days ago. For things like that, as well as other "antibiotic resistant" or "anti-fungal resistant" nasties, I keep colloidal silver on hand. It seems to take care of a lot of things that have built up resistance to the "conventional" meds.

Haven't seen you on here for a while. Welcome back.

[snip]

(NEWSER) – The CDC warned American hospitals last year to keep an eye out for the emergence of a possibly fatal, drug-resistant yeast infection, and now the agency's fears may be realized. CDC officials tell the Washington Post that 35 patients in the US have been stricken with Candida auris, a fungus that can cause bloodstream, wound, and ear infections, with another 18 people harboring the microbe without becoming ill. Some strains of the pathogen don't respond to the three main classes of antifungal drugs, and based on the small number of cases health officials have had the chance to review, 60% of patients hit with C. auris have died (though the agency notes many of those patients had other serious medical issues they were contending with). The fungus is contagious and durable, especially in health care facilities, where it can stick around on furniture and other equipment for months.

This is what makes it so interesting! It can survive in the environment for months! Imagine what could happen in an average nursing home. Swamp

Like ICE, I too keep a supply of CS on hand. I use it for minor issues when I'm not sure if I'm dealing with a virus or bacterial issue as it works on both.

As far as fungal infections....the fungus likes an acidic environment which is basically an "unhealthy" environment.

I have urine test strips at home so I can keep track of Ph levels. The strips don't give an exact number but a color so that you can get a rough idea of your Ph levels. Although, I keep the strips on hand for my dog who has struvite stones and gets frequent UTI's. They're nice to have on hand. You can learn a lot from your urine.

Apparently eating a healthy diet helps, but realistically has little effect on immediate Ph levels. Although here is an article that states lemon and pineapple water are helpful. I'm not sure it it's true or not, but it wouldn't hurt.

Here is an article regarding vinegar to help with Ph.

Again, I don't know how accurate it is, but I do have apple cider vinegar tablets at home. I take them mostly in the spring and summer to ward off bugs since they typically like to bite me and when I take the ACV, they tend to leave me alone.

If I had a fungal problem, I would keep close track of my Ph levels and try the above do-it-yourself remedies in addition to following doctors orders. It's always good to know there are some things you can do yourself to help your situation.

Calendula has anti-fungal properties as well, and can be grown in the garden. Might be a nice thing to add if you don't already grow it. Many other uses for it too.

I keep CS around as well, as well as Manuka honey.

I tried growing Calendula last year, but I guess I was too casual with the seeds, as it didn't come up. Will try again.
