  1. AWGIe You have fungal acne, most likely candida fungal acne. The bumps and hard nodules are keratin that the fungus makes your skin make. A white tongue means you have candida. I suggest you do the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the waxy skin/spots 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are totally safe. If you can get it, also buy nystatin topical antifungal cream
  2. Douglas - I cannot do skype. Great that your "acne" is clearing. Take oral Nilstat - that should fix your gut problems. Are you still taking antibiotics ? If you are, they are probably making your stomach problem worse. Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram negative acne, and I have extensive experience with fungal acne, in particular. I am a scientist (not a biomedical scientist, and not a medical doctor). I provid
  3. Podo If you have chronic acne, which will not clear with treatments for ordinary acne, you may have fungal acne. Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics, some other meds and possibly by taking accutane. Fungal acne has to be treated with antifungal creams and by keeping skin dry (moisture encourages fungus). Treatments for ordinary acne make fungal acne worse. I can provide more information if you get back to me with answers to the following questions. Do you have dandruf
  4. The bump is probably a keratin nodule, which skin makes in response to the foreign body, ie, the pathogen. I hesitate to suggest the following, because some people on this site think that I think that everyone has fungal skin conditions (eg, fungal acne, rather than ordinary acne) - but hard bumps under skin are symptomatic of fungal skin conditions. Can I ask - have you taken antibiotics ? And do you have a white tongue and/or dandruff (both of which indicate a fungal condition).
  5. You may have a fungal skin condition. Fungal skin conditions can create crawling feelings on skin. Fungal skin conditions are usually caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds. I suggest you do the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the waxy skin/spots 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are totally safe. 2. Wash your hair in an antidandruff shampoo
  6. These "bumps" look like "fungal acne" to me. Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and other meds, possibly including accutane. I suggest you do the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the acne 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are totally safe. 2. Wash your hair in an antidandruff shampoo. 3. Do NOT apply any moisturisers or organic oils to the areas with
  7. Clear Skin I would not use salicylic acid on your skin as it will destroy the natural skin barrier and allow fungus (and bacteria) to invade your skin. Don't exfoliate your skin - doing so will destroy the natural skin barrier and allow fungus (and bacteria) to invade your skin. You can use a moisturer without any organic oils in it, if you need to. Re histamines - use common sense and monitor your body's reaction to foods. Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours r
  8. Hot weather/sweating can cause and definitely exacerbates fungal acne. Fungus will infect eyes. Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram negative acne, and I have extensive experience with fungal acne, in particular. I am a scientist (not a biomedical scientist), and I am not a medical doctor. I provide information based on my extensive experience with fungal acne, and some experience with gram negative acne.
  9. Jimdevl You can get the Medistan at the URL below - this is a US company but it has a UK distributor. Address: Pharma Pigeon Products UK Frogmore Industrial Estate Acton Lane Park Royal London NW10 7NQ United Kingdom Free Phone in English: 123456789 Mix the medistatin powder with the clotrimazole and terbanafine creams and apply the mixture at night/afternoon - the mixture will be a bit yellow (the yellow washes off one's skin), so maybe just use the clot and terb c
  10. Clear Skin Sorry - I should have said malasezzia, but it does not matter. Candida and malasezzia are both fungi and they can (possibly/probably) both cause yeast intolerance. Sorry - I was distracted - someone complained about my posts - which annoyed me all the people who like my posts - very annoying - I was distracted. To answer your second question - Think of histamine going into your body as water going into a bucket - when the bucket is full you have a histamine problem. If you e
  11. Sweat will make fungal acne worse, and sweat can sometimes cause fungal acne. Don't stop your gym work, but DO put antifungal cream on exposed areas of skin before and after working out and put antifungal powder on areas of skin that are covered before and after working out and during the work out if you are sweating a lot. Keep wiping the sweat off your skin. Keep your skin dry. Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram neg
  12. food for thought Not everyone on this site suffers from ordinary acne - that is why they are posting on this site. Many people are suffering from fungal acne (and sometimes from gram negative bacterial acne or demodex mites acne) If people were suffering from ordinary acne they would be cured buy medical treatments, and they would NOT be posting on this site. Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram negative acne. I am a sc
  13. Douglas I am now confused. Do you have a skin acne problem ???? - apart from blackheads on your nose (which most people have and are not caused by fungus) Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram negative acne. I am a scientist (not a biomedical scientist) and I am not a medical doctor.
  14. Thanks Olivia Did your skin clear from applying antifungal cream or from taking the fluco tablet or both ???? Standard statement - I have spent over 2,500 hours reading scientific papers about fungal acne and gram negative acne. I am a scientist (not a biomedical scientist) and I am not a medical doctor.
  15. Clear Skin I think it unwise to eat yeast if you have candida - the reason is that one can develop intolerances to yeasts because of the candida. I used to think was a myth, but I don't think it is. Sleeping on one side of one's face can exacerbate candida because of moisture build up on the skin. Don't eat high histamine foods..... Food intolerances can build up over time and one's tolerance of histamines depends on all the sources of histamine that one is exposed to food, pollen etc.
  16. Jimdevl See how you go for another few days with the canesten and terbenafine creams. If no response then you will either need to use nystatin, which you can obtain in the UK as a powder (I can advise how to do this) OR consider whether you have ordinary acne. How often are you applying the antifungal creams ?
  17. poorbunny Thanks for geting back to me. Your whitish tongue (indicates candida fungus) and scalp condition (indicates candida or malasezzia fungus) indicate that you have fungal condition. What scalp treatments did you use, may I ask ?? Do NOT use antibiotic cream on your skin - antibiotics make fungal conditions WORSE. Fungus and bacteria are TOTALLY different organisms. You (most likely) have a fungal condition on your skin. You do NOT have a bacterial condition on yo
  18. Food for thought You are totally right that not everyone on this board has fungal acne. I am very careful who I respond to - I only respond to people who have chronic acne which has not improved with treatments for ordinary acne. I ask the person for signs of fungal conditions (dandruff, white tongue etc) othr than acne, plus I ask them whether they have taken antibiotics or other meds which cause fungal acne. I also ask about hot conditions/humidity where relevant. Many people a
  19. Kok Itchiness and red skin are strong signs of fungal acne. Do not exfoliate as doing so removes your natural skin barrier and allows fungus invade your skin pores. Fungal acne looks like ordinary acne but its causes are different. The dead skin is probably partly a result of the fungal condition. Dead skin won't do any harm - but exfoliating which removes the natural skin barrier will do lots of harm by letting the fungus invade the skin.
  20. Food for Thought read my mind! Kook Your condition DOES very much look like fungal acne, which is exacerbated by hot, humid conditions. Have you taken antibiotics or other meds ? Antibiotics and some other meds CAUSE fungal acne. Do you have dandruff or a white tongue ? These are signs of fungal acne, along with the acne itself. Do the following to control fungal acne. 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed
  21. Make sure you have ordinary acne BEFORE you take any meds. If epiduo forte is not controlling your acne, you may have fungal acne, NOT ordinary acne. Have you taken antibiotics or other meds ? Antibiotics CAUSE fungal acne. Do you have dandruff or a white tongue ? These are signs of fungal acne. Do the following to control fungal acne. 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the bumps 2-3 times a
  22. Faithyoo and others on this thread You most likely have fungal acne. Antidandruff shampoos on their own will rarely clear fungal acne/bumpson their own, but they do help. The main cause of fungal skin conditions is taking antibiotics and other meds such a birth conrol pills. I STRONGLY suggest you do the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the bumps 2-3 times a day. Topical a
  23. English Rose You most likely now have fungal acne, not ordinary acne. Fungal acne is caused by taking antibiotics and other meds, possibly including accutane. treatments for ordinary acne make fungal acne worse and worse. I STRONGLY suggest you do the following - 1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the acne 2-3 times a day. Topical antifungal creams are totally safe. 2.
