Customer Question

I was diagnosed with chronic Tenea Corporis (TP) located on my upper extremities. I was also diagnosed with Neutropenia and Leukopenia. In your medical opinion, what % of TP would you say contributes to my low white cell count? And where could I get the research medical documents to prove TP contributes to the low white cell count? My doctor prescribed four 150mgs of Fluconazole tablets but thinks I will need more. When answering please provide some of your credentials and name because I am a Service Connected Veteran filing a claim for disability and your information will help to validate the medical opinion. Thanks

1) I don't think that the TP is causing the low white count but it could be vice versa

2)there is a lot of evidence that immune deficiencies can cause chronic fungal infection
