Well, let me put this another way. After months of trying to get rid of this ear infection through diet/supplements/rest, I finally broke down and went to the doctor, who advised me to take the ear drops AND an oral antibiotic. When I mentioned Candida she gave me a written script for the amoxicillin so I could decide for myself whether or not to fill that prescription.
I am now at the point where I think I should probably take the oral antibiotic. But I am very frightened of making my Candida problem worse — maybe much worse. So I was hoping someone here might have some advice about probiotics and/or antifungals I could take while I am on the antibiotic so my Candida won’t get out of control again. I can’t be the first person with Candida who needed to take an antibiotic. Isn’t there somebody out there anywhere who has experience with taking an antibiotic AFTER coming down with a Candida problem?
I have tried and tried and tried for months to get rid of this infection without taking an antibiotic, because I am terrified of what an antibiotic might do to my gastrointestinal system. But I have this infection in my head and it’s not going away and the infection itself is starting to scare the heck out of me. So I am screwed either way. 🙁
