I always thought a fungus sore on the big toe was the entry point
for the Osteomylitis that led to a leg loss.
Lamisil is an over the counter med that seems to be effective.
Sporonox is a pill that was very effective for me.
The problem is all of the current med's just stop
the growtn of Fungus. The spores are in the skin and
treatment must be continued until these spores
are totally eliminated. That take time.
The stories on sporonox and Lamisil were alarmist
but I note Lamisil is now over the counter.
The key is the proper doctor.
I had large areas of fungus on the leg(s) and
they caused chronic problems.
I have had no problem in several years.
Again, you need an experienced doc in this area.
He will monitor you and do blood tests to see if any
adverse effects start to occur.
I have had a recent problem where the alarist warning prevented
proper treatment until I found an old doc with experience in this
area. He said the drug is a poison BUT
Warnng are out on "Cipro" now.
All drugs are double edged and care must be used. One
reason to use a doc--the proper doc.
But remember I am not the doc, closer to the village idiot.
