skin feel oily or waxy and has a definite odor to it. This fungus has
also invaded our house, carpeting,clothes, etc. tothe extent that some
of our clothes become uncomfortable to wear (and even painful with a
burning sensation). Medical doctors have not been much help and though
they have seen the symptoms they have treated for head lice, mites, and
ringworm. We have been using sporanox for three months but haven't yet
had any positive results. If there is any one with an open mind who may
be curious or who may be able to help us eliminate this, please

    It occurs to me to ask how you know what it is you are infected
with, whereas the doctors you consulted do not. Please pardon my
questioning your judgement, I am merely asking for my own edification.
