I have been reading a lot about the diet and am about to start it. Before I do I just want to be sure there is a good chance I have a candida infestation.
In January 2011 I all of a sudden got this redness around my nose and upper checks. It was / accompanied by white oil plugs and flaky and oily skin around the nasal folds which flaked of very easily. I have tried every topical out there and nothing worked. I have been to 3 dermatologists and they all say I have seborrheic dermatitis.
Prior to that I took antibiotics 2 times a year for chronic sore throats for the past 25 years (I’m 35). I also drank coffee 2 times a week and had the same type of sandwich for lunch and dinner for 6 months prior to Jan 2011.
I also have had excess gas for the last 2 years.
I don’t have any other aches and pains or health problems that I know of.
Does anyone have facial Seborrheic dermatitis or have heard that this is a symptom of a candida overgrowth?September 26, 2011 at 4:54 pm #65562

Hello and welcome to the forum.
It seems that a Candida albicans infestation accompanies Seborrheic dermatitis more often than not. The same diet can produce both, and logically the same diet (a Candida diet) could improve both situations.

Your organs are overloaded from dealing with the toxins from candida. When this happens, your body will detox in other ways…primarily through the skin.
For instance, when I decide to drink coffee on the diet, it bubbles up on my face near my nose and looks pretty bad. My body cannot handle it because it is too toxic.September 27, 2011 at 6:43 pm #65606
When do you think the red bumps, excess grease around nasal folds and white flakes will go away?
I have been on the diet for 3 days now (not that that is long) but just wondering when my skin will start to appear normal.
