Studies as you wanted below. Please see the second study about your issue with fungal infections. Very little D Mannose is metabolised into your system. There could be other factors that are causing your athletes foot such as a weakened immune system. Fungal infections are opportunistic and will seek areas of weakness in the body to thrive.

Hello Lindilou

Oh dear I am so sorry to hear that, was he able to tell you what infection you have?

As mentioned previously, D Mannose is primarily for E. coli type bacteria.

Assume he has given you AB's, so hopefully they will kick in within 1st 24 hours, hope you can tuck yourself up warm with a wheaty bag or hot bottle on your tummy, with warm drinks.

Can you telephone the Nurse on the Advice line this Monday and have a chat with her, I am sure you will receive some very helpful tips, and she may be able to suggest how you approach your Doc, to get deeper diagnosis.

Keep chatting to us on here if it helps.


Kate

No he wasn't able to tell me what infection it is.  I've to take a sample to the docs on Monday.  He gave me a plastic bottle with a red screw top and some powder in it, I presume to preserve anything in it.
He has given me trimethropim ( cant spell it), a weeks worth of tablets - 14, one to be taken twice day.

I am sure there is some underlying infection that isn't being 'killed off' and rearing its damn ugly head every now and again Kate 

[bawl]
Ps, yes I did a sample before I started the antibiotics.  The sample bottle is now in the fridge.

Hello Lindilou

How are you feeling this morning?

The red top container contains a preserving powder for when there is a delay in sending to labs, it may assist putting it inside a plastic bag in the fridge to protect it further).
This will hopefully confirm to the GP that the AB's are the correct ones for the bacteria,but as the weekend doc does not know you have the standard supply.

Personally I take a 10/14 day course( not just  7 days), it may be worth asking your doc if this could be an option as you appear to have a return " every now and then"though I realise you have had a mixture of AB's in the past.

Yes it so annoying, being fobbed of(as you say) but you can always ask for the names of the actual results.
Again I ask you to ring the Specialist Nurse THIS Monday..

Yes kate I will ring the nurse tomorrow.  Today I still don't feel so great but I imagine it will take a cpl of days to 'kick in.

I have found the article re the Biofilm infection thing in my COB pack.  I am going to contact Dr ******* tomorrow.  She may have a waiting list- I don't know. According to the AA route map she is 1hr and 23 mins away from us.

Edited due to naming of specialist

I have requested the Bacterial Infection pack so I should receive that shortly.

Thanks everyone for replying  [biggrin][thumb][love][smile]

It's just the Biofilm Infection info from COB.

My urine sample didn't show anything, just a mass of white cells !, the doc has written to the Urologist at the hospital and was very shocked that I was put on Ciprofloxacin to be used as one of the antibiotics to prevent infections.  He says Ciprofloxacin is really only used when nothing else will and is very concerned that I will become resistant to them.
