  1. Tiredof Flaking and red sensitive skin are signs of fungal outbreaks. Therefore, you probably have fungal acne. I strongly suggest that you follow the regime that I suggested in my previous post to clear your "acne". Also, buy some topical cream or ointment with polymixin in it, if you can get it without a prescription (try to get a polymixin cream or ointment without any organic oils in it - mineral oils such vaseline are OK, because fungus cannot feed on mineral oils), and apply
  2. Tiredof... You probably now have fungal acne, not ordinary acne, and that why the regime for ordinary acne is not clearing your "acne". Fungal acne occurs where you have "acne" because these areas are moist. Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds. You can get rid of the fungal acne by doing the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream and apply it to the areas with "acne" 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are TOTALLY safe and some/
  3. Linaki Topical antifungal creams are TOTALLY safe, so there is nothing to be scared of. Taking birth control pills FAR more dangerous than applying topical antifungal creams . People often start with ordinary acne, which then turns into fungal acne from taking meds, including birth control pills. If you have chronic acne, then the acne is most likely caused by fungus, and it is not ordinary acne. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by applying topical antifungal c
  4. Does anyone now whether you take the encapsulated faecal matter by mouth or inset it like an enema ? I always assumed the latter, but maybe I am wrong...
  5. Thanks Active Break I would buy an probiotic from the frig in a chemist's shop. Those should be OK. The reason that probiotics only partly fix he problem is that probiotics ONLY contain aerobic bacteria and antibiotics destroy BOTH aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in one's gut. Anaerobic bacteria cannot live in air and also they are dangerous outside one's gut. The only way to restore anaerobic bacteria to one's gut is with a faecal transfer. Until a few minutes ago, I thought
  6. Thanks help Our communications were on another thread, which we should probably go back to. Could you send me a post on our your original thread, so we don't continue to communicate on someone else's thread How long have you been applying the antifungal creams etc for ? Is the "acne" improving or not improving. Getting rid of fungal acne can take a while. If you can get it, I suggest you buy some cream with polymixin (sold as polysporin or neosporin) in it and apply that together
    • Lukit With those symptoms, you definitely have fungal acne. Red rashes, a white tongue and stomach problems (plus acne) are caused by candida fungus (also called thrush). There is no point in trying to treat fungal acne with treatments for ordinary acne. Doing so will only make the "acne" worse, as you have found. 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as canesten) and apply it to the areas with "acne" 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are TOTALLY safe a
    • Bubbly My point is that hormone problems can cause fungal acne and/or ordinary acne. If one has a hormonal problem, do not automatically assume that the acne is ordinary acne. The acne may be caused by fungus, and it needs to be treated accordingly (by applying topical antifungal creams etc).
    • Thanks Donna You can fix your white tongue, which is caused by candida (ie, thrush, which is candida) by doing one or more of the following - take oral Nilstat (which is safe) and/or swish 1% hydrogen peroxide around your mouth (dilute 3% peroxide down to 1%) and/or use mouthwash and/or suck on Dequaden lozenges.
    • Active Break It is hard to estimate the length of time you will need to apply the antifungal creams for. You might need to always apply them, say once a week, because the fungus can/will attack again due to your immune system having been compromised by antibiotics... That reminds me - I suggest that you start taking PRObiotics which will partially restore the good bacteria in your gut and thereby partly restore the ability of your immune system to fight fungus. I should have mentione
    • Thanks Donna, for your VERY kind words Can you stop taking the antibiotic ? If you are only taking it for acne, then I strongly suggest that you stop taking it because (as you now know) you have fungal acne, not ordinary acne. Antibiotics do NOTHING for fungal acne - they cause fungal acne and they make fungal acne worse. The antibiotic will do nothing for the fungal acne (except slow down the improvement from applying the antifungal cream). Taking the antibiotic will reduce the abilit
    • Help You most likely have fungal acne, rather than ordinary acne. People with persistent acne that does not respond to treatment for ordinary acne usually have fungal acne (and/or sometimes gram negative bacterial acne or mites) Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds, including birth control pills and possibly accutane. You can control fungal acne by doing the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole antifungal cream and apply it to the affected areas 2-3

      • Linaki With all due respect to your gynaecologist, he/she is completely wrong sayong that it's impossible for the acne to come back while taking birth control pills. People on birth control pills OFTEN get fungal acne, which is what you 99% likely have. Your gynaecologist is talking TOTAL RUBBISH implying that the cause of your skin problems is anxiety and that everything will be fine if you relax. That is TOTAL rot. The cause of your skin problem (acne) is FUNGUS. The fungal acn
      • Rebel Heart Benzoyl peroxide does not help control fungal acne very much, if at all. BUT ---- As I said in my previous post, your acne is most likely caused by the combination of fungus and gram negative bacteria. Both types of acne are caused by TAKING ANTIBIOTICS. The BP is partly controlling your acne to some extent (but not fully) because the BP is partly controlling the gram negative bacteria, but it is NOT controlling the fungus much (if at all). Thus, please apply the
      • People on this thread likely have fungal acne, not ordinary acne. Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds, including steroids and birth control pills.

      • THE MOST LIKELY REASON THAT THE PEOPLE ON THIS THREAD HAVE ACNE WHILE TAKING DIANNE IS THEY HAVE FUNGAL ACNE - NOT ORDINARY ACNE. BIRTH CONTROL PILLS CAUSE FUNGAL ACNE - I suggest people STOP taking them if that is possible Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds, including birth control pills.

      • The most likely reason that you are getting break outs on the Dianne is because you have fungal acne NOT ordinary acne. Birth control pills CAUSE fungal acne, as does taking antibiotics. I suggest that you stop taking the birth control pills, and DO the following to control your (most likely fungal) acne - Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics, birth control pills and some other meds. You can get rid of the fungal acne by doing the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical ant
      • Good news, Active Break - Thanks. I am pleased that things are working to improve the situation.... The emulsifier and artificial colours in the gum could exacerbate candida by causing histamine release, but as l you say, the effects of the gum and of other things cannot be separated. See if you can find a more natural chewing gum, ie, without any artificial colours or flavours Sorbitol (NO PROBS), Gum Base (PROBABLY OK), Humectant (422) (NOT SURE). Mannitol Flavour (MAYBE OK), Sw
      • Emday Dermatologists know NOTHING about fungal acne. Do NOT go to a dermatologist, and certainly do NOT take accutane until you have tried the treatments to control fungal acne. Accutane is VERY dangerous and it can make fungal acne WORSE. But - Applying antifungal cream to control fungal acne is totally safe. Get back to me Emday with answers to my questions above, and I can provide information that will very likely solve your problem, without any side effects and costi
      • Donna Thanks. Doctors and dermatologists now nothing about fungal acne, as you have found. I would not bother with them - they are totally useless and will only make the problem worse. Doctors and dermatologists destroy people's quality of life and health by continuing to prescribe antibiotics and other useless and dangerous "treatments" for fungal problems. If you have a white tongue and "acne" then you have candida acne. If you have dandruff and "acne, then you have malasezzia
      • Active Break Note that one needs to apply the correct antifungal cream for the type of fungal acne that you have. Check the information that I gave you for your type of fungal acne.
