it would be interesting to know where the gloves could have been, if they’ve had some kind of stong soaps or products on them o something that could be harmful and possible destroy the balance of good bacterias.
You should at least do probiotics if you haven’t started that already. Rasper also often advice people to take a test called candia5 that you can order and do at home.
Thank you for your post, Smurfie.
I’m thinking it could be something other than Candida also. The Diflucan/fluconazole didn’t work at all. And the doctor cannot explain the pain in my left leg/foot.
I realized there is a hole in the sole of my left foot from stepping on a nail a few years ago. It is a pinhole, but still, I did walk barefoot on the shower floor of a public shower at a gym some months ago. So, instead of any sexual activity, that may be the cause of pain my foot. Some bacteria or fungus got on my foot.
When the foot starts to hurt, I rub Tolnaftate cream on it and it seems to help. I have to do this regularly to keep the pain at bay. Today I bought some tea tree oil and put a drop on a wet cotton ball to rub on the bottom of my left foot.
Has anyone here tried tea tree oil as an anti-fungal topical?
