The treatments for tinea are typically administered in conjunction with a steroid and are typically given in doses of about 1,000 mg (3,300 milligrams) per day.
But for people with tinea, these are usually lower doses.
A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology showed that the tinea treatment for people in remission, which can be done with a combination of steroids, did not significantly reduce the amount of tinea they were receiving.
In addition, tinea infections that occurred in the months following treatment, such as pneumonia, caused by the bacteria, were more likely to recur.
“And when you take into account the fact that we have a much higher proportion of older people in Canada and the fact there are no other drugs for this, it’s hard to argue that steroids don’t work.” “
In the United States, the rate of titis was almost four times higher than in Canada,” said Jankowski.
“And when you take into account the fact that we have a much higher proportion of older people in Canada and the fact there are no other drugs for this, it’s hard to argue that steroids don’t work.”
But steroids can have serious side effects.
The most common side effect is tachycardia, which is often accompanied by an irregular heartbeat and a slight increase in blood pressure.
Other side effects include dizziness, weakness, confusion and, in severe cases, death.
Jankowkski and colleagues believe that tinea is much more common among older people, because many people with the bacteria have a chronic disease and are not well-nourished.
“A lot of the older population is undernourishing, they’re living in the most challenging times in their lives,” said Dr, Julie Ouellette, an infectious disease expert at McMaster University who was not involved in the study.
“They are not getting the nutrients they need.”
Treatment for tania is a very important step in tinea control, said Ouelette, but steroids can be dangerous for people who are not on the drug.
“You can have tania that is toxic, and you can have the side effects of tania.
The question is, do you want to take that risk?”
Tania is transmitted by bacteria from infected animals and is treated with antibiotics.
However, there is currently no cure for tainanosis.
The bacteria can also cause tinea infection in humans, but this has not been studied.
In the future, Jankowsky said it may be possible to treat tinea with steroids, and that it may make sense to do so when the infection has been chronic, which may be when people have a lot of chronic illnesses.
But until then, Jankski and his colleagues recommend that people use a combination steroid regimen, including steroids, with tania to decrease their risk of infection and to decrease the severity of their symptoms.
“There’s no real reason to stop using steroids,” said Ouchler.
“It’s a lot safer, but it’s a better option than steroids.”
CBC News has teamed up with the Canadian Tinea Foundation to create a video series called Tinea: A Journey of Hope, a video that highlights the importance of Tania in people who have been through a tinea bout.
