Starting Over Yet Again

I know I have said this a bajillion times this year, but I really am starting over with taking back my health. 

I have to.

I'm not going to show you the photo I took to play "guess that rash" with a moms group I'm in, but I have broken out in these crazy yeast rashes on my legs and on my foot. If you've been with me awhile, then you know that I have had mysterious rashes for almost a year now. I thought that those rashes were from some sort of food intolerance but after about six months I finally figured out that it was ringworm. 

I finally got that taken care of and gone and then I develop toenail fungus that I have been battling all summer. About a month ago, it was finally gone...and then I develop athlete's foot on the same foot that had the fungus... I think that it wasn't totally gone yet and because I had to walk around all day with wet shoes and socks it had the perfect environment to go crazy in, which it did and has spread not only over my toe, but now all over my foot...

...and as of the last two weeks, I have developed a crazy yeast rash on the back of my knee...which has now spread to my other knee. I am horribly, horribly itchy and super grouchy because of it.

I seriously cannot win with this. I honestly am at a loss as to what to do to rid myself of this mess. I have suspected known that I have systemic yeast for awhile now and thought that by eating paleo I was taking care of it. 

Obviously not. 

So, here I am starting over, yet again. I have been on the candida diet for four days now and am aggressively treating everything inside and out. Detox flu is so much better than living with this awfulness. 

This is going to have to be a lifelong thing for me. And that really really sucks if you want me to be totally honest. You have no idea how much I would like to eat sweets and crap food every now and then. Especially because my husband isn't totally on board and I have a lot of family members that think I'm nuts so I get to sit there while everyone else can eat whatever they want.

But I want it gone. For good!

  1. ick. hope it gets better soon.

  2. I am with you- I think it is always going to be a struggle for me too. And lots of starting over. But as long as we try! Hopefully all your health issues work themselves out!

  3. Thank you. I am so over this mess, it's not even funny. We leave for our anniversary trip in two weeks and I don't want to be dealing with this anymore!

  4. I hope you feel better soon....go see a Dermatologist, maybe they have an explanation as to what is causing the rash. I have super sensitive, dry skin, and after being overly kissed by the sun this summer...I have some noticeable blemishes that are annoying me pretty bad. I went online and did some research, as to what natural remedies to use to ease the dryness. Olive oil was the recommended remedy...imagine my plan is to smother my skin with olive oil tonight...wish me luck! I am also determined to have a healthier we are in this together :)

  5. I've been using tea tree oil and lavender essential oil mixed with a little coconut oil to try and get rid of it, which didn't help. So then I started with Lotrimin, which stopped the rash from spreading, but it still isn't going away. Right now I'm on the candida diet, taking caprylex and trying nystatin cream to get rid of it. Hopefully this will work!

  6. I hope you figure it out soon!! good luck. i went through similar stuff before finally figuring out gluten and I aren't friends. sigh.

  7. I have known I have gluten issues for about a year now and have gone through phases where I don't eat it at all but have always slowly started eating it again. It's now off limits. Period.

  8. Thank you. It really does suck and slowly the rash is getting better. Everything is also complicated by the fact that I have some viral cough thing going on for almost a month now - I think it's that enterovirus crap actually. The kids have also been sick all this week too. Pray for a healthy household!
