1998 – moved from EU to L.A. (CA)
2003-2017 – worked in old deteriorated bldgs., with constant exposures to lead, mold, asbestos, dust, sewage, bird droppings, soil, etc. Every 2-4 yrs experienced yeast infection on my penis.
2004 – Contracted gonorrhea, HIV (CD4 in 700’s)
2005 – started taking HIV medications
2006 – got bitten by brown recluse & received antibiotic, which caused genital yeast infection
2008 - diagnosed w/ anal warts (got appointment with specialist to remove them 6 months later; by then it became mild-high grade anal dysplasia (AIN 1) with HPV changes carcinoma in situ). Is there no regulations regarding time frames for such treatments as that could prevent
2012 (Summer) – after spending 4 days in Palm Springs I noticed pimple like thing on my chin that wouldn’t heal for months.
2012 (Fall) - my primary provider - reg. nurse started giving me various diagnosis over period of 7 mths (except test for strap virus) & prescribing me the following: Ceftriaxone Sodium 250 mg (injection), Restoril 15 MG (oral), Adacel 5-2-15.5 LF-MCG/0.5 (intramusc. susp), Bactrim DS 800-160 MG (oral), Hibiclens 4% (ext liquid), Permethrin 5% (ext) (when it got on open sores I screamed from horrific pain), Ibuprofen 800 MG (oral), Amoxicillin 500 MG (oral), DiphenhydrAMINE HCI 25 MG (oral), Ativan 0.5 MG (oral), HydroCHLOROthiazide 12.5 MG (oral) Each of them made my skin worse as pimples resulted in open sores that spread on my lower legs, my arms, face (one time when wiping face, eyebrow fell off), neck, genitals, top of head (lasted 4 years) & slightly on chest, torso & back. I mentioned to my RN that maybe I got something from my dog who had some roundworms like leisures at that time. She said that only rabbies can be transferred from dog to human. A few homeopathics suggested that I have Candidiasis or fungal infections. I asked my RN to order tests for that, but her response was that I am imagining things & should seek a psychiatrist.
2013 (April) – I left that medical provider in fear to end up in a ‘nuthouse’. I took my health in my own hands, spent thousands $ on books, body cleanses (for parasites, kidneys, bowel, liver…), natural pills, organic food, etc. By 2016 I was finally back to normal.
2017 (July) - lost my job, which caused me eating worse quality of food.
2017 (October) - tested positive for gonorrhea & got treated. Felt extremely fatigue (sleeping 16 to 22 h/day). Mental health nurse first insisted that I am depressed, which is the cause of fatigueness. After assuring her, I am not, and asking to check for vitamin levels in my blood, she agreed. I was totally deprived of vitamins B12, B9, B6, D, which was easy to take care of.
2018 (Jan) - tested positive for gonorrhea again & got treated with injection + pills. During that time I’ve been baking a lot w/ fresh yeast + sanding furniture w/o gloves or mask.
2018 (Feb) – nails getting almost daily overgrown with surrounding ‘skin’, started splitting, breaking… I noticed unpleasant odor from my uncircumcised penis (regardless of the frequency of showering), pale/whitish discharge from penis, bursts of appetite & cravings (esp. after 9 pm & whe I wake up; gained 8 lbs in 2 mths), familiar ‘pimples’ appearing on my face & neck, itchy & red eyes & blurry vision additionally to my keratoconus and astigmatism.
I asked my dr. to test me for candida and fungus, he said that Western medicine doesn’t believe into that unless HIV patient has CD4 count under 200 and is dying. Does CD4 count of 405 excludes possibility of having candidiasis or any other opportunistic (fungal) infection? Is it possible to have candida without oral thrush? How can be someone tested for candida?
2018 (March) - ordered ‘Candida Relief’ & ‘Ringworm Killer’ Within few days I noticed wht & blk lines leading from the corners of my eyes; nails started normalizing. Familiar pain of left wrist & right hip appeared. Any input, suggestions on my description & my photos at https://goo.gl/vtTjQQ? Can you recommend any medical facilities in L.A., where I can get tested to dis/approve my self-diagnosis?
Can prior fungal infections make a person at a higher risk to contract STDs &HIV?
