Remedy Description

Source: "Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Collumnist, October 8, 2007

DR. GOTT: I am responding to the person who coughed for six months for no explainable reason. I had a hacking, dry cough and a horrible headache for over a year

while my doctor did test after test and tried many treatments. I had no mucus drainage, no sore throat and no visible evidence of illness. I got no relief with

any of the meds, including sinus headache pills. There was no diagnostic reason for my cough, which continued to worsen day and night for one year.

The doctor finally gave me ketoconazole 2 percent and ketoconazole 200-milligram tablets, which he said was treatment for mold. Within three days, my headache

stopped. It took nearly three weeks for my cough to begin to subside. After this medicine worked, it was decided I had mold growing in my sinuses. What a relief!

A specialist in mold treatment had diagnosed my husband with lung mold growth two years earlier based on sputum tests. Before we got the test results back and

knew he had this problem, he died from other causes. We lived in a moldy apartment for four years before this developed. The mold was in the walls of the

bedroom from a previous water leak. We did not associate that mold with my problems until two years later, when the Ketoconozole worked to alleviate my cough

and headache.

Someone said, "You don't have mold in Arizona." But that's not true. Whenever water comes in contact with mold spores, they grow, especially in a dark place

like walls of buildings. I reported it to various agencies, but no one acted on my information. I moved out of the apartment in 2001. I don't believe there was

ever anything done to correct the problem. I believe it is still there and probably worse now.

This information should be used to warn the public of this potentially dangerous and hidden medical danger.

DEAR READER: I am publishing your letter for general interest. Arizona is the last place on Earth that I would expect significant mold pollution, so I learned

something interesting today.
