Danny 33 please tell me a bit more about your story. Did you have intracellular yeast on your skin? Intestinal colony? How did you get a diagnosis and how did you treat it? I only took nystatin topically and it cured the problem then my symptoms returned as soon as the 10 day course ended. Second time around of topical nystatin didnt work. I have no rectal skin irritation, but i do have a sore tummy and bowel issues. Drs seem to dismiss this as stress due to my “vulvadynia” that they seem to think is ” mysteriously overactive nerves.” But i jist know this is my familiar enemy yeast. My raw itchy skin started suddnly like yeast for no apparent reason.
I did have a skin scraping done about a month ago, but it came back negative. Possibly because it was taken on the outer edge of the affected areas, and the lab wasnt specifically looking for intracellular yeast.
Id like to treat myself long term for yeast but i need the help of a dr for that, and i probably need a positive skin scraping. Im so scared the next scraping will come back negative:(
