Candida and Acne

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I never had issues with acne when I was a Teenager (a few spots here and there) but when I turn 22 it started. It has been off and on for 8 years now and now I end up with spells where I will have 3 or 4 large deep red lumps either on my cheeks or left or right of my chin. Nothing seems to work. I have discovered through a family friend (who is clued up on nutrition and health) that I am suffering from Candida (and my diet is really bad, I practically live on diet coke!). I have bought some 5lac and decided to go on an anti -candida diet. I hear that peoples skin gets worse, is this true? If anyone can offer a newbie advice, I would really appreciate it.

Help!! :surprised::think::rolleyes::angel:

I had a very severe case of intestinal candida last year because of antibiotics. I saw an infectious diseases physician for it and was treated with antifungals and went on the candida diet because they were afraid it would become systemic. My acne did not change at all when I had the infection or when I was being treated for it.
