Cryptococcosis (cont.)

Self-Care at Home

People, especially immunocompromised individuals, should avoid going to areas that may have high concentrations of the fungi (see risk factors and prevention). People who are on long-term medication protocols for cryptococcosis need to take their home medications regularly and keep all follow-up appointments to avoid disease progression or reactivation.
