Re: Are there distinctions between Candida Fungus Skin Infection vs Internal Candida?
Thank you, jaguar57,
I think this might be Malassezia fungus on my skin because it was Dx as Seborrheic Dermatitis
. I am unsure how Internal Candida is related but feel certain that it is.... Since 2005 Doctors, bloodwork and GI tests were not very helpful but I must admit I've not whole heartedly done the prescription drugs most of them asked me too.
I am a little concerned about treating it topically and having it go internal if it has not done so already -so I feel I must treat as both an internal 'candida' as well as and skin surface fungus. Candex has helped when I've taken. I wish I could find someone on curezone who may have used it topically with success. I will post and seek out Candex uses.
I 've have been using mostly goat milk ZUM brand soap now and before knowing that my skin acid balance might not be right. Also done Salt Baths and Hydrogen Peroxide Baths that have helped 'some' before but unsure if this Malassezia or what ever of the many other fungus this could be is targeted by salt and hydrogen peroxide since the effect of lessening my symptoms has decreased over the years. YES years since 2005.
One other thought that one of my doctors believes is that high ph waters cause or contribute to Candida! My system got very alkaline after 2005 Vegan retreat and when I changed to a RO+minerals water unit at home. I've also had times when I would drink high (8+) ph waters.
I will look for the Acidic soaps and will bathe in and wash after with ACV. I will look for a 'healthy' powder but most I've found are not healthy. I've do wear a sash around my worst rash area, a crease under my belly, where dampness is notably a problem. Do you or anyone else seeing this know of any brands for the acid soaps?
I know about the sugar, Sugar
as in sweets and fruit juices but feel that whole fruit may be a problem or even my mostly green veggie juicing
may need to be eliminated or considerably cut with water too. My Doctor wants me <60 carbs a day... so a form of Ketogenic diet. I was already eating Paleo but with too many Sugar
Still don't know what to do about the Fluconazole Tablet or Ketoconazole shampoo? Don't know if they would help or hurt my body as I work to support it with natural means.
I just came in from sunning and will do that more daily with some earthing as well.
Again, Thank you for your Support!
Your suggestions make sense!
