I am thinking it is more die-off because you experienced symptoms after adding kefir to your diet. Kefir is a very potent probiotic and can cause additional die-off. I experienced die-off up until week 6 of the diet myself…so it is very possible.
Additionally I think that the yucca may be problematic potentially. It is slightly starchy and it might be best to save it for phase 2.
As far as the cysts, these are very normal when someone has candida. I have one myself on my wrist. One thing that can completely eliminate them over time is to use a cloth bandage, put castor oil (or any other antifungal) on the bandage, and place over the cyst and let it sit overnight. Do this for a few weeks straight and it will eliminate the cyst (if its what you have). I personally just do it once a week and it kills it off more slowly.
One thing to consider is just adding each food item per week. Try to narrow down what is causing it and eliminate it if you don’t want anymore acne.
