Brief Answer:
There is no need to panic. All is well.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully. I understand her worries and fear about a possible infection. This is simply not going to happen because the stomach contains so much acid that further sterilizes any food we eat. only when the germs are in excess number that we get overwhelmed and we fall sick.

Fungal freely moves in air and we get to ingest this quite often-mostly not aware of. Our body is able to address most instances and we need not get worried.

For now, there is no need for any treatment. There is little reason to be sacred of an infection. Staying calm and relaxed is what I recommend at this time.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
