I caved and tried the steroids i was prescribed because i came to the conclusion that my immune system is freaking out for some unknown reason and diet changes did nothing but make me miserable. At first they seemed to work well, i wasn't healed but i was i much better shape than i was before, feeling slightly less awkward to interact with people. A few weeks went by and what i feared most happened, the peeling returned and so much worse. I was so afraid to go outside because of how bad it looked i stayed in my dorm room for a week. I felt so depressed because i could hear everyone laughing and talkinhg and living a happy and normal life while i I was confined in the small space that is my room, devastated. I now have small white dots on my gums that i can mostly scrape off. This seems like this can really be candida overgrowth but diet hasn't helped, i tried liver flushing, herbal tonics, lots of probiotics, daktarin and it none of that helped either. I feel like i am going through my own version of hell as to not be able to function normally . But still trying to keep hope.
Still avoiding flour as much as i can because i really think it's a trigger for me, i had some over the Christmas vacation and i believed it caused areas around my mouth to start peeling as well. cut baked goods and it went away but the peeling lips still persisted. I tried nuggets and some other battered stuff and i seemed to be doing ok, but if i have bread, cake or pastries it seems to make the problem worse.
I think the most frustrating thing is people keep telling me to go back to the same dermatologist for her to prescribe something else and nobody wants to listen to my idea that could be a systemic candida issue. I appreciate all of you on curezone who take the time to read these posts. You guys are like a non judgmental listening ear that i wouldn't trade. Best of luck for everyone to find their cure and i will keep updating when I can.
