Did the doctor explain why he thought homemade laundry soap and softener would lead to the pylonephritis? I looked it up online and found a synopsis of it at https://www.merck.com/mmhe/sec11/ch149/ch149e.html I couldn’t see anywhere how it could be caused by homemade laundry detergent or softener. Did the doctor mention if he thought it was because the fecal bacteria wasn’t killed well enough by the homemade cleaners or what?
I hope they are both well again now. I noticed that the article I referenced above mentions that patients are often kept on antibiotics for a year. Is that something the doctor thought was necessary as a result of using the homemade laundry detergent? tumorfarmer
