Niacin in high doses is a profound antifungal. I take this along with ascorbic acid daily. If you take high doses of niacin, choose the inositol hexanicotinate version, and be sure to take equal doses of vitamin-c to counteract the histamine release.

Freezing can kill the fungus and climate change may be helping it spread, the researchers said.
Worse still, the fungus can cross into the brain causing thinking abnormalities.
Most people who are exposed to the fungus do not become ill. In people who become ill, symptoms appear many weeks to months after exposure. Symptoms of cryptococcal disease include:
* Prolonged cough (lasting weeks or months)
* Sputum production
* Sharp chest pain
* Unexplained shortness of breath
* Sinusitis (infection, cottony drainage, soreness, pressure)
* Severe headache (meningitis, encephalitis, meningoencephalitis)
* Stiff neck (prolonged and severe nuchal rigidity)
* Muscle soreness (mild to severe, local or diffuse)
* Photophobia (excessive sensitivity to light)
* Blurred or double vision
* Eye irritation (infection, soreness, redness)
* Focal neurological deficits
* Fever (delirium, hallucinations)
* Confusion (abnormal behavior changes, inappropriate mood swings)
* Night sweats
* Unintended weight loss
* Nausea (with or without vomiting)
* Skin lesions (rashes, scaling, plaques, papules, nodules, blisters, subcutaneous tumors or ulcers)
