Having heard all the news today about Jo Armstead finding a link between CF and aspergillus, I've been looking into fungal infections and asthma...loads of info on the net, and, guess what, it is normally treated with itraconazole! The ONLY time EVER that my asthma has improved to any degree was on both occasions I took a course of itraconazole for toenail fungal infections. At the time I was telling people that my asthma had 'gone away'. I have told several doctors this during consultations, but on all occasions they all told me that it was unlikely that there is a link. The information I have been reading this evening contradicts their opinions totally! I write this feeling quite angry that a clear, entirely feasible link is being immediately dismissed by people who should already be acutely aware of this possibility. Please help and advise me. What should I ask Doc? What should I tell Doc?
