Cutaneous Candidiasis Symptoms

August 18, 2019

Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath, coming back to you
again. We’re going into cutaneous candida. We’re going to look at the symptoms of cutaneous
candida. So, the typical symptoms we’re going to find
are redness of the area. Usually the skin will get a little bit red. You may not initially see it. It could be very pale or mild red, but eventually
it’ll become a deeper red, particularly with you scratching it all the time, okay? Even the thought of skin-based yeast infection
makes me a little bit itchy. So, the chief symptom, of course, is itching. You’re going to find itching. Now, the itching could range from very mild
or a little bit of discomfort up to seriously bad, where you’re going to rip the skin open. So, if you’ve got a skin-based yeast infection,
my recommendation is to keep the fingernails short. Always keep them very short. That’s the chief symptom is itching. So, where are you going to find this problem? Well, check out the first video we did in
this series. You’re going to find it in the groin, you’re
going to find it in the ears, you’re going to find it around the feet, and those sorts
of areas. Other kind of symptom you may experience could
be a mild sensation of burning. Some people with bad yeast infection can experience
tingling, a little bit of numbness in the area, but burning is another one, especially
if you scratch it really bad, okay? So, my recommendation is not to scratch it
too hard ’cause if you break the skin surface, you’re going to be in for a real problem ’cause
you could end up with a skin infection, so try not to do that. We’re going to talk a little bit about treatment
in a subsequent video, and how you can treat this, so once you start learning how to treat
this effectively and get on top of the skin-based yeast infection, the symptoms won’t present
themselves so much, which means you’re not going to be likely to break the skin and get
an infection. It’s all about understanding what the condition
is and then effective treatment so you can prevent it from coming in future, and also
preventing any kind of complications with this problem. Thanks for checking out this video.

    Hello Dr Eric, I truly appreciate all your work and your effort. I have an oral and throat yeast infection. I have a question: what alternnative products do you recommend to those who simply can't afford your Canzida ? I have been following your Candida diet crusher, I am doing oil pulling, taking vit. c and zinc , keep plain youghurt/ kefir in my mouth for 5 minutes per day …..yet….the candida in my throat / oral won't go away …
