What Is Cutaneous Candida?

August 21, 2019

Greetings. Eric Bakker, Naturopath from New Zealand. Thanks for coming back [inaudible 00:00:07]
2018, checking out my videos. Got a whole lot of stuff planned for this
year, and as usual got many questions from people from 50, 60, 70 countries. It’s awesome to see all the subscribers coming
in now asking different questions. Please remember I can’t physically answer
all the questions that are posed to me on YouTube. I get 50, 60, 70 questions per day. It’s impossible for me to answer physically
all of the questions, so I’m going to keep trying to pick out different questions from
my subscriber base and reply to those three videos. It’s the best way to do it because [inaudible
00:00:43] got access. Please also make sure you check out the playlist. We’ve got close to 1000 videos now in many
different playlists. There’s bound to be a video answering your
question that you’re probably going to want to know the answer to, so please check out
the playlist on this channel. I’ve got some questions here from a lady in
Canada called Helen. Helen wants to know was cutaneous candida
is. She’s saying, “Eric, please explain to me
about cutaneous candida.” So cutaneous candida is skin-based yeast infection. There’s many types of yeasts that can potentially
afflict the skin – not just candida. There’s also gootrichum, trichurus forman
… many other yeasts with weird, constrained sounding names like that. So that the key areas that we’re going to
find cutaneous or skin-based candida problems will be in the areas where it’s dark, and
it’s moist, and it’s warm. Like the folds of the skin around the belly
area, for [inaudible 00:01:43] slightly larger people. It could be under the breasts. It could be, for some people, between the
fingers, like the webs here. It could be around the toes or the toenails;
those sorts of areas. It could be the groin, it could be inside
the ears. These are all key areas where a yeast infection
can really take off. Especially if the person is sweaty and hot. Summertime we tend to find this more than
the winter time, for example. The warmer climates, we’re going to find it
more than the cooler climates. I’ve seen advertisements on the TV here in
Australia and New Zealand … every summer time they do this, they advertise this particular
powder you can [inaudible 00:02:21] around the body basically to kill yeast infection
on the skin. So cutaneous candida is skin-based yeast infection. The more common places we’re going to find
it around the genital area, the private areas of male and female. We get it, also commonly find it, for example,
around the feet. People who wear socks, especially in the warmer
climate. I’ve seen many people in many different industries
over the years. The people I find that’s got the worst yeast
problems are the ones who wear rubber boots. For example, the ones who work on dairy farms. We’ve got a lot of dairy farms in New Zealand,
so I’ve seen some shocking yeast infections of people who, you know, for example, milking
cows because they’re feet are kept moist all the time. We can also get it with people who work in
plants, like food processing we see it. I also see it with people who work with meat. Works like boners or butchers. I’ve seen it in people who do welding or mechanical
work, who wear coveralls or overalls. They’re going to have a lot of moisture to
the body. I’ve seen it in some people on construction
sites who wear hard hats; I’ve seen around the ears and in the ears. People who wear earmuffs quite a lot. I’ve seen it with airport workers. I’ve seen all kinds of people over the many
years, so people who wear those big headphones to stop noises of aircraft and stuff, they
can be more prone to that inside the ear. You can get it anywhere on the surface of
the skin. So that’s what it is. A cutaneous candida is skin-based yeast infection. Check out the other videos in this series. I’m going to talk about symptoms. I’m going to talk about causes. I’m going to talk about treatments and then
we go into a lot more. Thanks for tuning in.
