Here's a "for instance" example:
Medical doctors have 3 choices to treat sporotrichosis
Their FIRST choice is the medication called Itraconazole. Their THIRD choice is working up to 3.5-4.5 grams of SSKI
and staying on IT for 2-3 months.
Yeah, gimme itraconazole:
(The prescription of SSKI
is to start with 5 drops thrice daily, and work up to 40-50 drops thrice daily, increasing slowly by adding one drop [to tolerance] to reach higher doses. Fifty drops (thrice is 150 per day) is four and a half GRAMS of SSKI
Then you stay on that dosage for a couple of months.
Then you titrate back down slowly.
I've also read 4-6 grams of sski. Again, to the individual's tolerance.
Sporotrichosis is a fungal skin disease and occurs more often in people who work with plants, and who have poorer immune systems.
