I've had C Diff for a very long time and finally started feeling a little better.

I've been battling a sinus infection for 6 weeks with out any antibiotics.

I used alternative things to beat the sinus infection which has been unsuccessful.

At this point I feel that I need an antibiotic however I'm afraid of what might happen with C Diff.

Any ideas?

Buy some colloidal silver nasal spray. It usually helps ward off sinus infections for me.

If yours is not REAL bad it may still work.

Bactrim is least likely to cause c diff, its a low offender for c diff and I have taken it without issus since my c diff. Also taken a z pack without problems...lots of probiotics.

Be sure you have some saccromyces boulardii and plenty of probiotics if you have to get back on abx.

and follow the diet

I have had C diff now for 2 months. I got it from treating a serious sinus infection with various antibiotics for 10 months. (It was MRSA plus 2 other serious infections.)

The docs have told me that antibiotics squirted up the nose are less likely to cause C diff as compared to antibiotics taken orally.

So, see an ENT and they will order antibiotics that you use either in a nebulizer or in an atomizer.

Then, be sure you are taking lots of good probiotics and Florastor and drinking kefir. Also, suggest the anti-yeast diet.

I got the C diff when the ENT got frustrated and prescribed a very, very high dose of Augmentin for me--oral. It was 4,000 mg per day.

I got the C diff after that. Prior to that, I was on mostly antibiotics that I breathed in or squirted into my nose with an atomizer.

Use Florastor, a good probiotic. Expensive, but will help ward off Cdiff.
