Hi! I'm new to this community, but I'd like to ask if there is anyone who finds it hard to break the cellulitis-candida (yeast infection) cycle?
I look after my lymphoedema very well with both good nutrition and suitable exercise. But I often find myself feeling rundown and contracting cellulitis (in my right leg, which if affected my lymphoedema).
It wasn't until a friend of mine who works in the health sector told me that I could be suffering from systemic thrush, candida due to antibiotic overuse (which is difficult to avoid when you get cellulitis) that all the pieces started to fit together. The fatigue, brain fog, rashes and so on wasn't just me feeling "down", it was full blown candida!
I have tried the Candida diet, which is great (but hard!) How ever, I find that the GPs I've spoken to don't seem to have the faintest idea what I'm on about.
The only thrush they seem to know about is vaginal. And the treatment for that doesn't even touch systemic thrush!
Has anyone else had a similar experience, and if so, how did you go about it! Did you get any help from your GP? Did you do the diet?
I think the key to reoccurring cellulitis might be to clear the lymph of yeast so that it can drain more easily and not cause build up of old toxins.
Looking forward to hearing your view on the matter. All the best!
I have recently had recurring bouts of cystitis. I didn't know what had caused them, but I now wonder if it was to do with the fact I had had 5 courses of antibiotics in 4 weeks to cure a nasty leg wound sustained in an RTA. I also have T2 diabetes, which doesn't help!! XX
