@ptownmama I have stopped my topical creams – just doing smoothies. Fingers crossed!

I’ve been using whatever is in the fridge… 🙂 I have a vitamix which liquifies everything. I try to balance it out for consistency. I have used all the following in assorted portions: whole orange, apple, frozen and fresh bananas, frozen and fresh berries, dairy free yogurt, almond milk, cinnamon, kale, orange juice and ice. (And last week on vacation I added blue chair rum to one for a beach drink!) I just adjust things to balance the consistency. Hope that helps!

How’s it going for you? I’ve been making a smoothie every day and am shocked at the results! I’m in Gulf Shores this week for vacation and no new bumps and the ones that started are healing up. No itching! I hope you are getting good results too. 🙂

I just got back from work travel to Texas, and I think the heat and travel stress got me. I’ve got the start of a new outbreak! I’m so bummed. To top it off, I think I have some yeast again too. 🤦🏼‍♀️ So, I’m going to join the cilantro club! I have my prescription creams too, so hopefully between the creams and cilantro, I’ll keep this under control. Wish me luck! I appreciate all the commentary on this thread.

I’ve been following along with the cilantro postings. I’m almost in a full “remission” after 5 month of my most recent outbreak. I am one of the cilantro lovers of this world, so next outbreak, I’m trying the cilantro diet!!! Keep posting the updates for those of you trying it.

@ayamahamed Hi I’m sorry to hear you are experiencing this. If you haven’t gone to the doctor yet to be tested, you should start there as there are many other medical conditions that mimic yeast and each has a different treatment. If your doctor has already ruled out the others and you know it’s yeast, then you may need both a systemic treatment (pill) as well as topical (OTC creams typically work well). @gardeningjunkie provided a lot of good information as well. Wearing cotton underwear (if not already mentioned) and looser fitting clothes will help. (yeast likes to grow in dark damp areas) Hope you are better soon!

@packer2. My first onset had almost like a nerve pain – and was in spots where I couldn’t see any bumps. I thought it was shingles at first. My second flare up did not have that same sensation, but I did get a secondary yeast infection with my second bout. I thought I was going to scratch my skin off. After the yeast cleared up, it’s just bumps with less symptoms. They never go away completely and feel bumpy. I was just persistent in contacting my dermatologist as things changed, and he has been great. Anytime you have open skin, you are subject to secondary problems. Hope that helps!

@jpearo Based on the research articles dating back to the late 70s, yes there have been cases where someone has GD and other diseases such as renal failure and cancer. Per the research articles I have read, they have not established a causal link in the cases. GD is often misdiagnosed with other skin conditions. The best thing to do is be dilegent on follow up treatment/care, the doctors should be ruling out all other health issues. With medical professionals, I would recommend sharing all of your concerns/symptoms etc. something seemingly minor could be important for them to get the correct diagnosis. I’m a nurse and have worked both in acute care as well as home care, and getting the correct diagnosis and treatment requires knowing all the pieces of the puzzle. 🙂
