Candida Yeast Caused Skin Hives and Welts
An overabundance of Candida intestinal yeast can be the underlying cause for everything from sleepiness, to gas, to Dermographism.
At first, I thought I was just suffering from stress or an allergic reaction to something. ANY topical treatment was pointless, because the problem was from inside. Benadryl didn't help at all, nor Allegra. I have found some relief in Zyrtec. However, when the random fits of itching and burning became more predictable and more frequent I began trying to figure out what was causing it. Along with the increased "itch fits" I began having stomach aches, athlete's foot, and problems in the "girl parts".
I went to an allergist and did a full blood spectrum test. I'm not allergic to a darn thing. The family doctor was baffled, as well as the skin doctor. Thankfully, I ran across a doctor with many years in enviromental medicine, and he confirmed my Candida theory. Like many Americans, I've had a little too much antibiotics in my time, and I'm overweight from a Candida-loving diet heavy in sugar and starch. I am now on an anti-candida diet as well as anti-candida herbal supplement, along with "good yeast" replacement, and just general better health practices. But, if I slip up and eat too much sugar, too much starch, and don't drink enough water... I'll be scratching and welting up again as I reach for the Zyrtec.
From what I've read these symptoms can be just short of eliminated once the body is stabilized and the lifestyle is changed to a more healthy way of doing things. Eat more fresh veggies and avoid processed starches and processed sugar.
I'm loosing weight, feeling better, and having less "itch fits".
