Mouth spray
Hello, after I have read about diverse product recalls of nose sprays I ask myself, if the by me used mouth spray could probably also be contaminated (I change the type according to the offer). I like to have it with me to be fresh when on travel - might it be harmful? Regards,

Mine / flowstone cave
Dear experts, can a CF student go to a mine and a flowstone cave during a school excursion, or is this not advisable due to the germ situation? I would particularly imagine the flowstone cave to be a germ source par excellence. Thank you for the information.
Dear expert team, my son (1 year, CF) has once more Staphylococci in the throat swab and has been treated with antibiotics for this several times. My question is, where this germ can be found, as we do really have a look at the hygiene, I ask myself where he gets the germ all the time? Or can ...
Antibiotics after throat swab
