    I have been having problems with itchiness, excessive sweatiness, and redness in the groin and genital area. that is how all of my candida symptoms started (before the “ibs”, prostatitis, fatigue etc). inspite of antifungal creams, the problem won’t clear up, is this because the candida is still living in my digestive tract? does the candida in the rest of my body have to go away in order for the candida on my genitals to clear up? sorry if that sounds stupid but i have to get an answer since it’s been really bothering me. a dermatologist said that I have overactive sweat glands in my groin area and that botox may help but it is expensive. I have not yet pursued that because I wonder if i actually do have overactive sweat glands in my groin, or if all of the problems in that area is related to candida? that is where candida usually starts anyways right?

    It may not be candida, it could be that your body doesn’t detox via its normal processes such as via the liver/kidneys and its sweating via the skin instead. I would consult a naturopath if possible. Some bodily imbalance is likely causing this to happen to you.

    Relating to this, if you try out acupuncture, you likely will notice an improvement in your symptoms quickly. They can do specific points for specific issues and it might clear up via this method.

    There is no way to know whether the diet will clear up your symptoms, however for me nearly every one went away. I had help from a naturopath and it definitely sped up the process.

    You have to recover your immunity against candida to eradicate it.
    Your immune system is tolerating the yeast.

    Read this carefully :

    People can become
    unresponsive to an antigen by exposing them more or
    less continually to this antigen. This may be carried
    out with very high doses of antigen—called “highzone
    tolerance”—or with very low doses, “lowzone
    tolerance.” High-zone tolerance tends to
    render unresponsive both T- and B-cells, whereas
    low-zone tolerance weakens or blocks the T-cell
    response only. Thus the cellular immune response
    (T-cell) is more easily blocked, and such blockage
    is easier to sustain than is the humoral (B-cell)
    response. Furthermore, unresponsiveness (or
    “tolerance”) is easier to induce with soluble than
    with aggregated antigens.
    Thus immunologic tolerance is most readily
    achieved by more or less continual exposure to a
    soluble antigen, with T-cell paralysis being much
    easier to achieve and sustain.
    When mucous membranes are chronically infected
    by yeast, cells of the immune system are exposed
    continually to Candida antigens, thus satisfying the
    conditions for tolerance induction. This weakened
    immunologic response allows the yeast to thrive in
    the tissues, and a vicious cycle is established. An
    analagous situation has been reported in
    lepromatous leprosy. In this, the widely
    disseminated form of leprosy, impairment of the
    immune response has been demonstrated in vivo by
    reversion to negative of the lepromin skin test, and
    in vitro both by impairment of the lymphocyte
    transformation test on exposure to the leprosy
    bacillus or phytohemagglu-tinin, and release of the
    migration inhibitory factor on exposure to the
    bacillus. In the tuberculoid form of leprosy,
    however, this does not occur. This is the localized
    form of the disease, which carries a good
    prognosis. Thus widespread involvement is
    associated with impairment of the immune
    response.
    With Candida infection, as with leprosy, there
    may be for each individual a critical point beyond
    which the total area of involvement is such that the
    antigenic stimulus paralyzes rather than stimulates
    the immune system, particularly the T-cell compartment.
    Until this state of immunologic
    unresponsiveness is broken, drug therapy of the
    yeast infection will be less than fully effective.
