Gardening
Can a person suffering from CF do gardening (contact with soil, grass) without too much risk? I've had several Pseudomonas and aspergillus infections. Thank you.

Garden hose
Can we fill a small pool for a 2-year-old CF child with water from the garden hose? I feel that the hoses are real nests for bacteria, with stagnant water and are often in the sun. .... thank you

Beach
We were told that our child could swim safely in the ocean but can he play in the sand at the beach? The beaches are often not very clean when we dig a little, the sand is humid and potentially contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa? What is your opinion? Thank you

Finding of staphylococcus aureus at adult age
Hello, I (female, 28 years old, chronic colonization with Pseudomonas aeruginosa since early childhood) have had for the first time the finding of Staphylococcus aures in the last sputum. Apart from penecillin, there are seemingly no resistances. My health condition is actually quite good, I was able improve my FEV1 from 24% in the year 2011 to 34% FEV1 and with this also reduce my need of additional oxygen via a strong therapeutic regimen (azithromycin orally and aztreonam + colistin inhalative as permanent antibiotic therapy, every 6-8 weeks i.v. with changing antibiotics). My physical capacity is as good as it has not been for years. Should one now react to the new finding or rather wait and see? Many thanks!

Sweating
Hello, our one-year-old son with CF is sweating for several weeks very strongly at the head, even if he is not too warmly dressed and it is not warm. Especially at night and when inhaling. His hair is often completely sweated wetly. Shall we get this investigated (and if yes, how?) or is it normal for CF patients to sweat very strongly? Many thanks!

Baby wipes

Sweat test
If the sweat test is negative, does it means that I am a cystic fibrosis carrier?

interpretation of cystic fibrosis result
Hello, can you please help me to interpret a result? Methodology: DNA was extracted from fetal cells from the culture. DNA molecular analysis for cystic fibrosis detection was performed using the kit "Genetic Cystic Fibrosis Assay 'ver March 19, 12, which detects 38 mutations plus genotype Tn. Screening of 39 mutations reaches a detection rate of approximately 80% of cystic fibrosis. Analysis was performed by direct amplification of genomic DNA by PCR followed by reverse-hybridization method. Result: Negative for 38 of the most common cystic fibrosis mutations. Genotype IVS8 poly T: 7T/7T Thank you very much! A.
