We’re still in the early stages of understanding how to spread cryptococciasis, but the process is relatively straightforward.
First, a person infected with cryptococcids should wash their hands and clothing in warm water.
The CDC recommends washing your hands with soap and water for 15 to 30 minutes after washing your teeth, then with warm water for 30 to 45 minutes.
Then, the person should use a cotton swab or tissue from a small wound to remove any traces of the virus.
Next, use the cotton swabs or tissue to clean a cotton pad, then wrap it around the area of infection, which should remain dry.
Repeat this process with a towel.
If you’re using a cotton ball, you can wrap it over the wound.
Then you can put the cotton ball on the cotton pad to soak up any residual moisture.
If the cotton is soaked, wrap the cotton in a towel, and wrap the towel around the cotton.
After the cotton has soaked for 10 to 15 minutes, use a damp cloth and gently wipe off the virus on the area you’ve wiped.
Repeat the process with the other cotton pad.
Once you’ve thoroughly cleaned your area and have wiped off the excess, you should disinfect the area by using a disinfectant solution such as chlorine or bleach.
This disinfectant should be diluted with warm soapy water.
Follow the directions for disinfecting your area.
If using bleach, the bleach should be poured into a bowl, and allowed to sit for five minutes before adding it to the disinfectant.
Once the bleach is added, you will want to stir the bleach into the disinfectants solution, so that the bleach will evaporate quickly.
Repeat for as long as the disinfection is needed to disinfect your area or the bleach has been added to the solution.
If your bleach has a high acidity, you may need to add a bit more water.
After you have added the bleach to the mixture, the mixture should be shaken vigorously to dissolve the excess bleach.
Finally, add the disinfected cotton pad and wipe off any remaining water on the pad.
Repeat with another cotton pad or cloth.
If all is well, the area should look dry and you should be able to see the bubbles in the bubbles.
Once all is done, disinfect the cotton pads and cloth and repeat the process.
Once your cotton is completely dry, you’ll want to rinse your hands, rinse your face, and dry your hands thoroughly with a damp towel.
Wash your hands again with soap.
If any of the bubbles have disappeared, your area is good to go.
If not, you might need to repeat the above steps again, or you might be able by washing your clothes.
