5 Things to Know if You Have Candida-Induced Eczema

It's more common than you think for your eczema to be caused by candida overgrowth in your gut. Here are 5 things to know if you have candida-induced eczema.

1. What is Candida

Candida (usually c. albicans) is a fungus that lives in your gut. It lives there even in a healthy gut. The problem is that it can overgrow during certain conditions like if you have used an antibiotic or even hormone changes.

It can form something called a biofilm which protects the community of fungus from being killed off. Think of it like a clear slimy tent. 

2. Candida can become resistant to medications

Candida is known to become resistant to fluconazole which is an antifungal medication. This can make it really tricky to eliminate. I recommend trying to heal it naturally to avoid this resistance.

3. Supplements help you get rid of the biofilm

There are some really powerful supplements that can break down the biofilm to expose the fungus so you can then get rid of it. 

4. Food can feed candida

Unfortunately, candida likes to feed off of some foods that we eat especially sugar! You can starve candida as one strategy to eliminate it. If you have eczema, feeding candida makes eczema worse so it's especially important for you to focus on diet.

5. Candida can cause some funky symptoms

Brain fog, anxiety, depression, mood swings, sugar cravings are just some of the few symptoms you could experience if you have candida overgrowth in your gut.
