I'm on the anticandida diet, but I stopped taking antifungals every day for a few weeks because candida builds up resistance to them and I wanted to give it a rest for a bit.
Well, lemme say something. Every year, around either winter or summer, I get an itching between my 5th and 4th toes. And whether I scratch it or not, I get cellulitis, or a fungal infection. And naturally, my MD would give me a broad spectrum antibiotic to cure it (unless he decided I'd gotten a fungal infection instead, in which case I get some steroid antifungal).
Well, you know what prolonged antibiotic use does, and I don't doubt that's part of why I have candida today. Naturally, I want to avoid using this nonsense if I can.
So what can I take to kill the cellulitis or whatever it is this time that isn't a powerful antibiotic? Do I take garlic pills several times a day? Grapefruit seed extract? (I took 1 garlic pill and 2 Grapefruit-Seed-Extract
pills tonight just in case) Do I rub coconut oil all over the infected area? (I did that) What suggestions do you have for getting rid of this nonsense?
I'm back to eating coconut oil everyday - that did seem to stop the itching the last time I'd randomly get the "pre cellulitis" itching, so I'm hoping it helps. But I seem to already be getting the cellulitis or fungal infection - the bottom of my left foot (the one that keeps getting infected) is turning somewhat grayish, like it does when this stuff happens.
I am in the process of switching doctors and have already switched insurance, so I can't go back to my old MD just to get another prescription for another antibiotic right now, unless I want to pay through the nose for it. So, any help, please!!
