This is my life - I cut out sugar...still sick. Cut out gluten, got better (rash gone). Brought sugar back..got sick rash came back. If I eat sugar or any carbs whatsoever, my scalp breaks out in flakes, my face gets red/oily and starts to burn, and eventually, the itchy rash on my elbows will come back. I am no longer getting the yeast infections (knock on every piece of wood known to man), but I think that's because I stopped taking the bc pill a year ago. During a particularly bad PMS week, I threw caution to the wind and had a few glasses of wine and some cream cheese frosting (don't judge)...next day, itchy head, oily gross skin, irritable attitude...know what that lead to? Anger and more indulging!! Stupid endless cycle of crap. If I'm very strict on my no sugar, no alcohol, no carb diet, I feel great. But then I end up pissed at the world cause I can't even have a glass of wine with friends on a warm Spring afternoon!!! Someday I'll either stop whining or figure out a different solution...until then, I'm in the same boat with you. Wish I had something more positive to share.

This is coming from a Super-Sensitive standpoint:
I am not eating sweets. (since 7 Years) I haven't had gluten for about a year. I am avoiding grains. (l year) I am avoiding foods I have antibodies to (6 weeks) Both when I began avoiding grains and other intolerances I experienced a "yeast cleanse." Hopefully, this will do the trick!
In my thoughts, I think the celiac came first and lowered my immunity level. I am thinking that my intense sweet tooth, when I was little, fed the yeast. I also had several long and short pennecilin shots when I was young. This kills the good bacteria in the gut and leaves plenty of yeast and bad guys to take over.
I am feeling so much better that I don't mind not eating sweets so much. The exception being when I am eaten in front of. I am feeling less upset about that as I realize that not everyone has as big a problem as I would.
