  1. In a previous post I mentioned how I cured my acne and eczema after eliminating my food allergies. Although this is true, and I did get rid of eczema that gave me red raccoon-like rings around my eyes, and acne that also strangely liked to hang out around my eyes, I still had acne. I also had a stubborn patch on the right side of my face that would flare up during my menstrual cycles. Well, I think taking the yeast and acne thesis somewhat seriously may finally eliminate my acne entirely.
  2. Hello! About 2-2.5 weeks ago, I started drinking 3-5 cups/day of green tea, as well as mixing it in with my daily moisterizer (Aveeno Clear Complection), which I apply 3-5 times per day. Over the course of 1 week, I noticed this made a huge improvement, but it was not clearing up everything. Then, I began taking Zinc (25mg/day), Vitamin B6 (100% DV), Vitamin B12 (100% DV), Vitamin C(>100%), and Brewer's Yeast (6 tablets a day w/food) in addition to Vitamin A (100% DV), which I had already be
  3. First of all, I have had severe acne for the past six months. A combination of cysts and whiteheads. About three months ago I was tested and diagnosed with a yeast allergy and candida overgrowth. My holistic doctor started me on grapefruit seed extract, probiotics, garlic, and oregano oil. I've also been advised to stop eating sugar, vinegar, alcohol, fruit other than berries, and yeast. I've been doing all of that ever since I first saw her. I do feel like it's cleared up about 60%, but it'
  4. Greetings, I have tiny bumps that look very similar to acne although it's not based on my visuals and attempting to popping them. To recap how this occurred, it occurred back when I had a bad cough that Promethazine w/ Codine and Amoxicillin won't eliminate the cough at all. So my PCP prescribed Methyprednisolone 4MG Dose pack. It significantly reduces my cough and I asked for a second pack. After the second pack my left side of the neck started to grow acne then it turned dark and it grew rapi
  5. I have been diagnosed with candida overgrowth and have been following my doctor's recommendations for the past several months. While my face has cleared about 60%, I still have breakouts very regularly, and have recently developed new breakouts on my neck. My diet is basically avoiding the following: yeast (obviously), sugar, alcohol, fermented foods, and vinegar. I still eat grains as long as there's no yeast in them. I've found a sunflower/flax seed bread that I eat regularly, flour tortillas,
  6. I've been struggling with acne my whole life, I've tried every topical treatment, I've been taking spironolactone for close to 8 months with no real improvement. I started birth control pills two months ago in an attempt to help my hormonal acne. But I have been having reoccurring vaginal yeast infections, but not experiencing any symptoms. Every time I go back to the gyno, the infection has returned. I've started a prolonged treatment of fluconazole, so hopefully that will help. I did some rese
  7. I'm desperate to end eruptions of a lesion type folliculitis infection in my beard. Skin history: Developed severe acne on my back and on my forehead when I was 12. After being disfigured on my back due to the severity, I took Accutane and it seemed like it cured me. Virtually left with no scarring on my face. At that point, my facial hair began to grow in. I am now 21. The issues with folliculitis are never ending. After about 6 months of being off Accutane I developed an infection in the h
  8. I was prescribed oxytetracycline for about 6 months 2 years ago for my acne on my forehead. It did clear my face at the time, but it just came back a few months later. Since then I have tried lots of topical treatments (decided to stay away from antibiotics as the last time it had severe impacts on my immune system) but none of them really worked completely. Now that I think of it, my condition doesn't look like the typical acne cases. Yes I do have pimples on some areas, but the thing that anno
  9. Sorry about the length, but your read/help is seriously SO APPRECIATED...this website is the most help I could ever ask for! I am desperate for the help of acne.org in finally figuring out what the hell is going on with my face. I am a 20 year old female with quite the history. Acne as a pre-teen and teen. Took minocycline for like...2 years or something in jr. high and high school. Significantly cleared but then it stopped working. And now there are a whole bunch of (permanent) digestive issue
  10. Can Candida Cause Acne?

    What Is Candida? There Is No Direct Evidence Linking Candida to Acne Why Candida Probably Cannot Cause Acne Common Candida Infections The Bottom Line Recently, a number of practitioners of natural and holistic medicine have put forward the claim that Candida is behind many common health problems, including acne. These practitioners suggest that by taking naturopathic supplements that prevent Candida overgrowth, a person can successfully treat acne. However, there is not enough scientific evidence to support...
  11. ★★REAL Causes of ACIDOSIS & HEARTBURN★★ Hyperacidity, also called acidosis, is known as the main cause of HEARTBURN, which is a BURNING SENSATION in the esophagus. Esophagus is the foodpipe that connects the throat with the stomach. Oranges, grapefruits, tomatoes, chillies, peppers, mustard, other spices, wine, beer, other alcoholic drinks, tea, coffee, carbonated beverages and many other foods and drinks have been blamed by doctors, medical scientists and nutr
  12. Having teenage acne, I took doxycycline for three years and once I became immune to the antibiotic I then took another antibiotic (minocycline) for another 1.5 years. During this time I also developed juvenile eczema and yeast-induced folliculitis. For the folliculitis I took Ketoconazole 20 mg every other week and I used a Selenium Sulfide shampoo three times a week and rarely had any large breakouts. Since I am almost 21 (and sick of relying on antibiotics twice a day) I decided that I didn't
  13. I originally posted this on the Reddit's subreddit SkinCareAddication and got some responses, but nothing of concrete help. I am hoping this community can share their knowledge and really help me finally get my skin back to normal. Pictures Below \/ GGGRRrrrrr. PLEASE! I seriously beg of you. Instead of rambling for paragraphs about how depressed my skin has made me and my terrible life so far, I'll just list out my current skin issues and very specifically what I'm using and have used. I
  14. Hey guys, I'd really like to share with you my journey to fighting oily skin/folliculitis. I've had extremely oily skin for 4-5 years now, and candida(yeast) as well. I've had re-occuring yeast infections on average twice a month ever since then. It would get so bad- that being with the same partner, we wouldn't always use a condom, but a few days after being sexually active I'd get a severe yeast infection. The itching, swelling and burning wouldn't even allow me to sit down. Since abo
  15. About 4 months ago, about 10 little bumps appeared on my forehead. At first, I assumed it was acne and I treated it like it was. I heard great things about the Shea Moisture African Black Soap and decided to try it out. I used it for about 2 weeks and it made it 100x worse. Now my forehead is absolutely covered. I began researching it and I learned about something called Malassezia Folliculitis and it really does look like it could be that. I have no idea which it could be, and how I can treat i
  16. Hi guys this is my first post:( I signed up because after 7 years of acne and it dwindling and just dealing with 3/4 med-large spots on my face at any given time, in the last WEEK my face has suddenly exploded. I dont even think it is strictly acne. In the last week i have developed a red rash on my face of lots and lots of tiny spots. These spots/rash are on my whole face but especially on my forehead and around my mouth and chin, and on my nose. This is definitely abnormal as i literally hadnt
  17. Hi! i've had this question in my mind for quite some time. let's say u've done the saliva test but it's come out negative. i'm told by a worthy fellow blogger here that one can still have topical fungal issues. one question on that, # does such fungal bumps itch for sometime?suddenly? so,now am going to focus on fungal folliculitis and it's solution. well, we all know what it is..antidandruff/anti-fungal shampoo like nizoral,scalpe,head & shoulders etc. but my point li
  18. http://www.foodmatters.tv/articles-1/how-to-overcome-candida-naturally First off, I want to start off by saying I have about 85% of those symptoms listed in that article. I have been struggling with acne for almost a couple of years now. A friend of mine has talked me into going paleo. In doing so, I was getting almost no carbs. My skin was starting to improve after about 3 weeks. However, In that time, I lost over 14 lbs. I blame that on me not getting enough healthy fats to keep my calo
  19. Hey guys, I've had these little white bumps on my chin and corners of my mouth for about 4 years now. I've treated it as acne the whole time, and even tried 6 months of accutane without seeing any results. The accutane did clear up the ACTUAL ACNE in between my eyebrows, but it never did anything for the tiny white bumps. After years of frantically researching, I think I might have found the culprit. I think the tiny white bumps are caused by an overgrowth of yeast in the body. The term of the
  20. *backstorySo long story short (kinda) my skin has been clear and almost perfect all throughout my teenage years. Up until I turned 20 and had a realllly shitty break up which I believe the stress caused me to get acne. It was pretty terrible from going from having clear skin to pretty much my entire cheeks are covered with aggravated acne. I knew it was an internal issue because I would have a couple spots on my back or chest as well. This lasted a year and a half of me supplementing, cutting da
  21. I'm pretty sure I have yeast overgrowth - I'm always tired, I'm allergic to everything and I have those white bumps on my face. Trying candida diet now (hard as fuck). I have tried the diet for few days and I can see a lil difference on my body. My skin hasn't changed though but it can take a while I guess??? Trying these: - vitamins - probiotics - diet - turmeric - diy oregano oil - coconut oil - ACV - supplements for yeast overgrowth I think I can do this, but do you ha
  22. Hi all First post on this forum (although I have read it for quite a while). I have suffered from moderate to severe back acne for a number of years. I am now 20 and have been prescribed a number of treatments including doxycycline, oxytetracycline, lymecycline. For a period the dermatologist thought it could be fungal/yeast based foliculitus and I was prescribed Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo to shower with and also oral anti-fungals. My current prescription is 4 months of 408mg lymeccyline o
