Thread: please advise---itching all summer and doctors have no idea why--yeast?

    please advise---itching all summer and doctors have no idea why--yeast?

    it started in may, two weeks after my first six weeks protocol. i went on a riding trip with a friend and stupidly wore nylon undies with nylon britches.
    that afternoon i started to itch and a few weeks later went to my gynocologist who suggested cotton panties and mild cleanser. (gee thanks).
    well that weekend i also added chocolate and wine back into my diet.

    since then i now have a small rash on both sides of the nape of my neck, one unbder my breast and a big very itchy rash from my bellybutton on down.
    i used the pyrmethrin cream and still itch, so thankfully it's not scabies--ick!
    meanwhile dh has been itching as well, we thought it was a no-see-ums and mosquitos but nope. his itchy spots are huge raised welts which weep, not at all like mine.

    i think we may both be having reactions to whatever we;ve added back into our diets, which for him is almost everything.

    so where do i start? i'll be back on protocol in three weeks, but what should i cut out now?
    commercial sugars for sure--stevia for sweetener if i need it, which is very rare.
    i avoid wheat gluten but it's not 100% yet.
    is red wine a typical culprit?

    help!?

    no, and we always use scent and dye free detergent and white vinegar for disinfectant and fabic softening.
    latex topper and temperpedic mattress we've had for a year at least.
    i'm feeling that maybe i detoxed so well in the first six weeks that adding back whatever my posein is has undone my balance.
    i wonder if an eastern medicine approach would help?
    oh and plus i'm on amoxocillan for an infected tooth which apparently had been brewing all summer also.
    i think tomorrow is going to be a yogurt day no matter what.

    Two years ago I was given amoxicillin for an infection. I broke out in hives from it, then 6-8 weeks later I had fevers, night sweats, and hemolytic anemia. I could barely function. It was a severe drug reaction to the amoxicillin which I was told was not that uncommon. I was never allergic to it before. Also, food allergies can develop any time, and after detoxing it seems like the reactions can get stronger with exposure. The biggies for that are: wheat, eggs, dairy, peanuts and tree nuts. You could try an elimination of each one for a week or so and see if it helps. If I eat wheat, I get rashes pretty quickly, plus intestinal issues; and I don't have to eat much of it for that to happen, so I've learned to live without it. My sister gets a type of allergic reaction to her own sweat when she exercises! It's called exercise-induced anaphylaxis so that poor girl can't even work out, except for swimming, and she has to avoid extremes in temperature. I hope you can pinpoint what is causing it. Good luck!

    Wow that is really strange! To answer your question about red wine (I'm an oenophile) many people who have problems with it are sensitive to tannins. There is also sulfite allergy, but that would be more of a "true" allergy where you can't breathe. I'd eliminate the wine for a while, then try a young red wine which will be low in tannins (Beaujolais, or many Pinot Noirs and Tempranillos are good choices).

    I have had itching problems too. At first I was trying to figure out what it was, but couldn't track it down. I have eczema as well, so I finally figured the intense, scratch-your-skin off reactions were linked to the eczema. Anyway, long story short, I take CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), 2 capsules twice a day, and it clears up my eczema and that intense itching. If I stop taking the CLA, it comes back within a month or so. ALso, perimenopause can cause intense itching. I am 55 and I use bio-identical progesterone drops for hormone replacement.

    PS: It was my wellness/anti-aging doc who put me on CLA.

    PSS: Oh, Oh, Oh, another trick I use for allergic reactions is to take half a tsp of baking soda in water. It is an antacid and makes your body more alkaline/less acidic. Being in an alkaline state is the healthy way to be, and I have seen it stop many allergic reactions. In fact, my mother used this method for my uncle when he was on his death bed and was so miserable from itching/scratching. . . and it worked 100%. The nurse was amazed. Instead of baking soda, an alternative is club soda that has the bi-carb in it. Also there is Klaire Labs Bi-Carb, which is capsules of bi-carb so it is easier to take. HTH

    Hi! Do you have a good dermatologist in your area? Maybe they could help. I'm wondering if you picked up something while horse riding....given where the rash started. Scratching can then cause a skin infection, which means the rash just keeps going. Did your doc culture the rash to see if it was infected? Hubby's problem sounds like bug bites....they were really bad this year. My DH had some on his lower legs and they took several weeks to go away.

    Have you done the spit in a glass test for yeast? All the areas you mention are places women get yeast growth.
