Supplements that feed candida

I'm trying to recover from serious systemic candida that has left my skin in a horrible state. This was stirred up by Iodine supplementation. About 12 days ago, I began to take supplements to handle the detox brought by iodine. Unfortunately, I didn't know one of the supps was feeding the candida which added a new vicious cycle.

This supplement is NAC (N-acetyl cysteine). Last night, my skin was calm and I was expecting a good night's rest. Then I realized I had forgotten the last dose of NAC. 15 minutes after ingesting it, I knew something was wrong. It resulted in yet another sleepless, scratchy and gassy night.

From searching the web, I've come up with a short list of supps that feed candida or yeast in general:

* N-acetyl cysteine / L-cysteine
* Lipoic acid / Alpha lipoic acid
* Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10
* L-glutathione / Glutathione
* L-taurine / Taurine
* MSM, Methylsulfonylmethane
* L-methionine / S-adenosyl methionine, SAMe

What they all have in common is sulfur. I tried finding a list of supplements that commonly contain sulfur but came up empty. What supps do you feel contribute to candida overgrowth, by direct observation or fact?
