Anyone had fungal/yeast infection that caused their acne?

Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone else has suffered spots/acne from a yeast or fungal infection and what they did to combat it?

I’m in my 30s and struggled with acne from being a teenager. I go through a couple of months sometimes with clear skin but I do have periods of having a few spots or breakouts.

I do have digestion problems. An immediate family member has diverticulitis and wondered if I could have inherited that but I’ve since read about Candida and some of the symptoms of that are currently what I am going through. I’ve had yeast infections before and had fungal infections on my feet.

I get very small spots on my forehead that never come it anything and it’s the same down one side of my face. Its almost like a rash and it’s only a Simple moisturiser that seems to keep my forehead clear.

I get what you call spots mainly around my mouth/jawline and on my neck.

I have pale, sensitive skin that does react when products are used and I suppose it is about finding the right one(s).

I wondered if anyone has maybe suffered similar symptoms?
