View Full Version : Fungus Infections??

I have a new symptom that is about to drive me crazy. Approximately a year ago I had an ear infection every time I turned around. Since starting Plaquenil those symptoms had disappeared until a month ago. Now on top of ear infections, I have fungal infections in my ear too. Anybody deal with this? So annoying.

I get ear infections all the time and fungal infections too, mmmm my doctor explained why this happens to us but now I can't remember. Sorry wish I could tell you why now but darn brain fog.

I am so glad you posted. When this first occurred a couple of months back the doctor asked if I was diabetic. I told him no and he said that was odd because they type ear infection I had was normally only found in people who were diabetic. I then told him I had Lupus and he said, that explains it then. A few days later I ended back up at my regular doctor and they discovered there was fungus in there too. I guess I will be back at the doctor again.
