What can you do to help yourself?

The patient themselves can contribute to the management of their own illness. Those with allergic forms of the disease will know that avoiding the source of aspergillus spores is important, and that can be found in some very unexpected places e.g. the pillows on your bed can be a prime source of fungal spores, as can your pets (dogscatsbirds) and other animals you come into contact with e.g. at wildbird feeders as well as house plants.
