I had a nail infection on both my little toes that was left untreated for a few years. Last August I began to get skin rashes that my dermatologist said were yeast/ fungal and to scrub with Selsen Blue (which I did.) I was also prescribed lamisil for my toenails. Two weeks after I finished my lamisil, I caught Strep (I am a Strep Carrier.) My doctor prescribed amoxicillin. I seemed fine, until the strep made it thru our family back to me again. I noticed weird growth on my throat and tonsil stones, so I went back to the doctor who said they thought maybe the strep had not cleared and I needed a stronger antibiotic, and a Nystatin swish and swallow. The very first morning (Friday), it seemed my throat was worse! Whole back of throat and behind molars were covered with growth (I think yeast?) Over the weekend I now have a terrible vaginal yeast infection and looks like my skin is getting a fungal itchy rash (can’t stop scratching!). My doctor was closed Friday and I left a message today saying I think I am worse. I had a message back saying they were calling in a new prescription for me and to also take OTC Prilosec. When I got to the pharmacy, there was a stronger antibiotic (which I decided not to pick-up) and fluconazole (which I did get)but the pharmacist said he did not know why she would have told me to get the Prilosec (there is also a warning to ask physician before using with antifungals.) I have never had these reactions or symptoms before.
I should also probably mention my diet. For the last three years, I have not eaten processed foods, or meats. I do eat eggs, fish and shrimp. I do not eat cheeses, unless I have a veggie pizza and then it is very light maybe once a month. I do not eat sugars except fruit. I do not eat white bread or pasta or rice. I do eat whole wheat tortillas and whole wheat bread occasionally. I do eat buckwheat pancakes with yogurt maybe twice a month.
So, what do I do???June 11, 2013 at 6:20 pm #106096

I would switch to the forum’s strict diet and supplements in the situation, as instructed (to avoid bad die off). It really helps.June 11, 2013 at 7:36 pm #106100

It sounds like you have a gut flora imbalance that benefits both the strept and the candida. I used to have strept over and over as a child and it got so bad that I had to remove my tonsils. I took every single antibiotic there is on the market and eventually they stopped working.
And here is a fact: you cannot completely destroy the strept or candida, so the antibiotics are not really doing much except reducing their numbers.
If you have a gut flora imbalance this isn’t how you “heal” the body.
I would consider going a different direction and consult a naturopathic doctor who heals people whereas doctors just treat the symptoms, not the cause.
