There does seem to be a link - for a change, not something I suffer.

Please talk to your GP or specialist.

I'm really glad you asked the question _I knew about candida/thyroid connection but had no idea there was a specific APS connection. Best wishes

Dr Peatfield talks about candida in his book as one more thing that we are prone to that needs to be checked and fixed as part of an overall strategy. Common with gut dysbiosis and low metabolism and occurs with many autoimmune conditions. Have a look at purehealthclinic.co.uk/cand... for more help. Cheers

Reoccurring thrush is a pain. If you are taking immunosuppressants, the good bacteria is also affected.

It may also reside in the gut and sometimes medication is required to eliminate the problem in the gut.

Go to your doctor and explain the recurrence and hopefully it will be treated. This is what I had to do!

With good wishes,

I have had candida overgrowth. Found by Cleveland Clinic - I never knew! My symptom was only " stool streaking. " ( Hows that for an embarrassing revelation? ) I took an anti fungal, the symptoms resolved, but this year have come sneaking back. I am trying to eat more veggies and less empty carbs in hopes of starving those yeastie beasties to death. We'll see. I may have to take that anti fungal again ( yes, it did mess with my INR.)

Thank you for bringing this up. I never considered a Hughes Syndrome link until now. I will be brave and embarrassed too, here goes!

I have a very similar but possibly worse problem. I get fungal infections under my boobs, under my tummy bulge and at the top of my legs where knicker elastic goes as well as the groin area in general. That bit is not just itchy it gets painful and feels like I’m bruised on the bones I sit on, actually inside my bum but close to the ‘danger’ areas. My GP assures me that this uncomfortable bruised feeling is actually part of the infection!

I have got rid of the one under the boobs by using a medicated talc. It’s also now rare for the under the tummy one to flare. But I cannot get rid of the one in the groin area. I have very sensitive skin probably because I have a lupus-like illness, Sjogrens and psoriasis. I have found it better to wear knickers that have longer legs so that there is nothing in the crease at the top of the legs. I also find wearing my knickers inside out helps on my worst days so that the seams don’t irritate me. I told you it was embarrassing!

No one seems interested in doing anything other than giving me antifungal hydrocortisone cream.

I’d love to find something to clear it all up! Xx

Sorry you are having such problems - might be worth a read of Micki Rose's site for some possible alternatives, especially the Truly Gluten Free advice if you have so many sensitivities (like me!). I had/have oral candida but testing showed negative elsewhere although I am not so sure. Check purehealthclinic.co.uk/cand... Best wishes

(Incidentally, are you already gluten/grain free etc. Lots on the site about gluten/skin worth a read too)

Thank you for your advice, I will have a look at the site. I’m also going to talk to my gp about having some fluconazole as others have found it helpful. She just tells me to use the cream and has never suggested other medication but then she does know that I’m reacting badly to any new medication 😟

Yes I suffer from this. My rheumatologist says it’s common in autoimmune diseases. I’ve just been put on an extended course of treatment of fluconazole by her (totally screwed with my inr!) and now I’m having a weekly maintenance dose for 6 months to try and stop it recurring.

Ask your Dr about treatment for recurring infection as it is in the Nice guidelines for longer treatment.
