I have a thick layer of scales that form on my face and especially in my T zone, on my nose/in-between my eyebrows/nasolabial folds/forehead/eyebrows/chin and in some parts of my hair, my entire face is scaly but those are the worst areas. I’ve been dealing with this condition for over a year now and it has been very difficult. I’m assuming it’s seb derm. This all started after a period of severe depression, I’m still not better but I’m trying to be.
I followed the candida diet for about a month faithfully and the symptoms did seem to lessen but as soon as I started reintroducing other foods it started up again. I’m back on the diet again now and really hoping things calm down but I’m starving to death, I mean there is literally nothing to eat.
I’m wondering if anyone else’s skin gets this way and what you’ve tried/done that has successfully treated it. I’m also wondering if it has effected anyone else’s eyes? I had sudden deep tear trough’s form shortly after and that hasn’t helped with feeling better.
I’ve been taking caprylic acid (Formula SF722) but this hasn’t had any effect. I also don’t seem to have the other physical symptoms that some have described here aside from the depression (which I think is mostly because my skin looks so horrible).
Any advice/opinions would be great. It’s nice knowing I’m not alone but sorry you guys are dealing with this as well.December 16, 2017 at 1:26 pm #174922

I have a similar problem too you, along with the depression. I’m only in week two of the diet and my symptoms have gotten better. I’ve ordered huel, a meal replacement shake that seems candida friendly. If that works out, I don’t think there should be a problem meeting daily caloric and nutritional requirements. Why don’t you take a look at that?December 17, 2017 at 10:16 am #174926

I think you should start to learn how to cook differently. In this site there are really good recipes.
If you use substitutes you should find your way to eat healthily during candida diet. (eg. oat if you don’t have severe candida)
If I were you I would mainly focus on gut health with lots of probiotics.
Also, has a dermatologist seen your skin?
Otherwise, if the diet worked then keep going! Since many cases the doctors don’t know the solutions either.
