I have always had a problem with fungus. It is in my nails big time as well as tinea on my skin.
However, I have had incredible itching for the last few weeks. it moves all over my body and becomes very intense at night. Occasionally I see red patches that disappear as the itching dissipates. I have resorted to Benadryl to get some sleep.
I do not think that is an allergy as I have not changed any prescriptions, foods, laundry soap, etc. My doc is doing more blood work to rule out other problems.
I have been doing more hiking and consuming more high sugar foods lately- like dried fruit - and I am wondering if this might have just finally tipped the balance.
Some folks talk about systemic candida and how people with diabetes are prone to this condition. Others disagree. What do you think?
Have others had this problem and what has been effective for you?
P.S. For now I am trying to keep my blood sugars in very tight control and severely limiting the intake of all sugar, including fruit.
