    Does anyone know if exposure to black mold (long-term) can be the cause of having fungal skin rashes and candiditis? I have found out I have black mold where I live and its all seems to make sense. I have been on Able’s diet for 2 months now and feel ok but not completely. If I started to add things to my diet, I’m afraid skin rash will come back. Just found out about the black mold though and in the process of moving. I was at an allergist today and skin test says not allergic to mold. I am having a professional mold test done at my house in a week to document. What is anyone’s experience on this?

    I would be very concerned about black mold. I lived with it for 2 years and I was out of work, and spent all of my time in the apartment. I had some mold in the bathroom and didn’t worry about it until I started to have seizures and I became allergic to everything I ate. Black mold ruined my life and all I gotta say is GTFO. Move on from that place and move somewhere that is new and clean. Mold ruined my life and partially caused my candida; it could be hard to get better when you are breathing it in your lungs and absorbing it via the skin. Think of it as a strong possibility of why you got ill in the first place.

    I can go on and on but you get the general picture of what I am trying to say.

    I’m leaving this week, had to find a place. The mold here was hidden and was finally found accidently. I have been a member on here for some time and been following the diet pretty good. I always suspected something in this house. Doctors doing every test and scratching their heads, one of them even mentioned mold. I didn’t think so because I never seen any. Thanks Raster for replying. My next move is to a naturopath (appt. next week)and I will be outa here in 2 days.

    Thanks s., I was doing research and found that mold can cause candiditis. The md did prescibe me the clotrimazole and it helped. Did you take anti-fungals also for your rash? My blood sugar seemed to run low in the beginning of the diet and now its seems ok. I am still staying on diet because I feel I need to get to my clean place and detox from the mold and I don’t want rashes coming back. This sure turned my world upside down. Who would have ever known mold could be the culprit. As for my stuff, its easy to rid but hard to replace but if I want to get better its going to have to happen. A website said to throw away anything pourous (anything made out of paper, fabric, cardboard, leather, etc.) including mattress. Of course my bed is one of the expensive mattresses. Since I rent I also was able to find and personal injury attorney to look into this for me. I am getting a mold test done here after I’m out and the place has been closed up for a couple days. (better concentrations)(air and swab testing). Right now all windows are open and my bedroom is now in the living room with windows open 24hrs and mold room is sealed off. Anyways, thank you for sharing. I will keep posted of what my finding are.

    i was exposed to black mold for 2 years (out of work as well) right before i got candida… you are better off living in a ditch than living in that house, trust me. The longer you stay the more mold spores will go into your bloodstream, and it will destroy your short term memory, at least it did to mine. I was having breathing problems as well. Now im allergic to wheat, dairy, and eggs… i might have been slightly allergic to it before but i ate it my whole life and didnt have any allergies until i lived in that house. I noticed my heart started having really bad pains as well until my body was able to get rid of some of the fungus. I noticed that i started to get very suicidal for no reason at all in that house, not cool at all… then when i moved out i started to feel much better.

    But the weird thing is my gf didnt have any reaction to it all, even though she always has eaten alot more sugar than me. I think it has alot to do with allergies… maybe a mold allergy or something?

    Yes and HELL YES…. i was also exposed to Toxic black mold for years and i have been fighting the candida condition for awhile now it defiantly causes candida. Which i thought i had it beat and it has returned.

    I just found a new product ive been trying for 7 days so far for candida with very impressive results so far. It claims to beat the condition with two weeks of treatment. (kills the candida strains in 3 days in lab tests) its called

    N-fused candida…

    I’m reading this thread and thinking I’m probably going through the same thing. Two years ago we moved into a lovely little home. I work from home, so I was excited that we had a finished room in the basement that I could convert into my home office. Shortly after, I started getting sick with sinus infection after sinus infection. The first year it was just one or two, but by the second year it was three or four. I kept on going on antibiotics, two courses were usually needed in order to wipe it out, so I would say I’ve been on 20 days of antibiotics every four months. But lately, I’ve noticed that antibiotics weren’t even helping anymore. I started doing research and realized that I most likely was dealing with a mold issue. I moved my office upstairs, and my husband took apart the framing in our basement only to find a crack in our foundation. There wasn’t a ton of mold, it was just in a couple stud planks and fiberglass. I had been working every day down there for the last two years. I started taking Quertecin with Bromeline to treat my sinus issues (they have improved so so much) all sorts of vitamins, and I’ve been on the candida diet for about two weeks now, with terrible die-off symptoms. I’ve ordered diffusers and essential oils to help, but I feel like I’m grasping at straws. The drs haven’t been much help, they just throw prescriptions at me and send me on my way. I don’t think my condition has gotten as bad what you’re all seeing, because I don’t have any rashes or nausea, but I feel like there must be something going on because I’ve had all these sinus infections, low energy and just generally feeling tired and sick. We are filling the crack that was bringing in water and causing the humidity, and I’ve read that ‘thieves’ essential oil can help clean the air, but I just had some questions. How do I find out how severe my candida? Is there any advice that you can throw my way since you dealt with it too?

    From my experience with mold, the very first thing I did was GTFO and not be around it any longer. This meant moving out of my apartment for me and throwing away my new $1000 mattress and sanitizing all of my possessions. I don’t think you can determine how severe of a case you have but you can determine whether it is a problem or not for you (diagnosis) by taking the candia5 test. You could also get tested with an allergist potentially and/or get stool tests:
