I live on Long Island, NY and I am wondering if anyone knows an immune specialist near me who treats chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis. Both of my children have seen a pediatric immunologist who has performed multiple laboratory tests and has confirmed that my children have almost no immune response to candida in vivo or in vitro (both DTH skin ***** test and progressive candida challenge blood test).
The doctors who have diagnosed the kids do not treat this condition. I have read that some immunologists have had success with antifungal drug therapy followed up by transfer factor injection treatment to reverse this condition.
Has anyone heard of a doctor in NY that does this? Or at least a chronic candidiasis doctor who is in the allopathic medicine community (we already see a wonderful naturopath who is helping - but not curing the problem).
Thanks!
