Once your doctor reviews your symptoms and medical history, they will perform a physical examination and order blood and urine tests, as well as samples of:
- Bone marrow.
- Pulmonary secretions.
- Lung tissue.
If your symptoms are mild and tests show no problems, you probably won’t need treatment. But if the infection has spread or you have chronic ailments, you’ll need antifungal medication for several months to a full year.
You can prevent histoplasmosis infection by avoiding exposure to closed, polluted environments such as henhouses, wearing a protective mask, and spraying water on the spot to counteract exposure to dust.
