Effective treatment of cutaneous Candida is not about doing one thing. It’s about doing several things.
I have my clients look at their diets and lifestyle. Next, we consider supplement options and topical treatments. But first, make sure it’s Candida that is causing the problem. There are other skin conditions, such as psoriasis, that can look like Candida but require a different treatment approach.
The recommendations I regularly make when it comes to treating cutaneous Candida include the following:
Diet: Follow the MEVY (meat-eggs-vegetables-yogurt) diet discussed in my Candida Crusher book. Stop feeding the infection by eating sugary food and take-out.

Lifestyle: Take a careful look at your lifestyle. If you can identify anything that is contributing to the Candida, take countermeasures. For example, when I was in my twenties, I had a bad yeast infection of the skin. I was spending a lot of time in the water and needed to work on keeping my skin much drier. When I made that change, the rash improved markedly.
If you have a fungal infection of the toenails, you will need to keep the skin between the toes very dry. If you have a fungal infection of the ear, avoid wearing earphones, earplugs, or having hair that gets into your ears.
Supplements: Check out the CanXida Remove, CanXida Restore, and CanXida Rebuild. These products work beautifully along with skin-based products to address cutaneous Candida infections.
Topical (skin-based) products: Tea tree oil is a wonderful skin-based product. You can get tea tree oil soap. Use this soap to wash around the creases, folds, and your groin if you have fungal infections in these areas. Essential oils can also help manage cutaneous fungal infections.
You should be an active participant in your recovery from cutaneous Candida. Don’t solely rely on medications, even if they are natural ones. Instead, make sure you are making diet and lifestyle choices that support your recovery from the Candida.
