So vegan catlady,
Do you have much experience taking antifungals? What you committed was a classic noob mistake imho and you’ve gotta learn from it. Antifungals are very strong, especially when you have a fungal infection. So I hope this shows you how bad the overgrowth is currently, because its what woke me up.
I had some of your symptoms plus more when I would get die-off. I would get a headache, ringing ears, heart palpitations, coughing, itchy skin, bloodshot eyes, etc. immediately. It typically would last 1-3 hours for me. This was after 1-10 drops worth of grapefruit seed extract. After 1 week at this dose, these symptoms reduced. I would only get it again if I overdid the amount.
So when you take a new antifungal, be very cautious in the amount you take.
Another thing to keep in mind is that antifungals won’t cure your infection/infestation; all they do is kill the candida. You cannot kill all of the candida with antifungals. In order to reverse the overgrowth, you need probiotics…especially human derived strains. You need to reverse the composition of your gut flora and antifungals alone won’t do this.
Also, if you rotate antifungals, only stick with those same few antifungals during your treatment. Some people rotate between 5, 10, 15, 20 types of antifungals and then the yeast becomes resistent to all of them. This is something you do not want to have happen…
