Yes - it might be aggravating your acne and causing some of your other symptoms. It may also just be a sensitivity to yeast and sugary foods. I can't eat anything with yeast in it like bread. And sugary foods make my acne worse and can cause other undesirable conditions. Following a low fructose, no alcohol/sugar/dairy, whole foods diet will help many inflammatory symptoms like the ones you mention. Dairy also has hormones that add to problems.
Some of the foods mentioned on typical candida diets are okay for me...such as fresh mushrooms and nutritional yeast which is actually a dried mushroom exceedingly high in B vitamins and great for acne.
