Poll: Do you have Candida?
« on: December 02, 2018, 04:32:07 PM »
I want to know if a lot POIS-patienst have Candida. I have it often and I use a lot of antibiotics. I think that POIS also creates and
 envirmoment in the gut where candida can grow.

POIS since 2000. Very bad since 2008. I knew that I have POIS since June 2010. Desensitization since March 2011. I stopped with desens in July 2016. I have 50% less POIS. And only 1 day of POIS. Purified CBD works for me, but I am allergic for CBD.

Was that fungus caused by antibiotics? Or was POIS the cause?

I use 50.00 IE weekly for almost a year now, but I still have candida. I have Pityrosporum folliculitis (looks like acne) on chest and arms, white tongue and white lips. Also candida on my scalp. I use Ketonazole shampoo for my hair, but after a month I still have it. For a week I use miconazole tube but I still have a white tongue. That’s because I am on antibiotics. I have a few days to go. And I hope the miconazole will help. Otherwise I wil, ask for Fluconazol (Diflucan).

It was independent of both. I don't have it now but my pois is has strong as ever.  I don remember using any antibiotics when i noticed them.

Ten years ago, theories about candida were not serious. But the fungal infection seems more and more studied now.
It looks like gluten allergy.

Thanks for the update, b_jim.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

Yes, pois = candida

I don't use antibiotics

But I use antifungal.

Antifungal = Fluconazole.

This has helped me big time for recurrent fungal skin infection especially the feet. I apply a thin layer that dries quickly. Anti-fungal cream from the doctor loses its power over time unlike vicks.

Does a peer-reviewed method for diagnosing candida overgrowth exist?
