Testing for stool fungi and IGG for Candida is not likely to help explain the cause of your symptoms. Try not to do self-diagnosis- it often leads to errors. ...Read more

My four-year-old autistic son had his stool analyzed.  There was much yeast in it. Is this a symptom of leaky gut or can it cause brain fog?

It does reach the autism community and embraced by some.Of course they will want you to repeat the studies several times to see if treatment worked. ...Read more

Perhaps food allergy: To find out which food is causing the itch, you will probably need an allergist. You can try an elimination diet, food skin tests or blood tests for food to narrow down what you are eating that you are allergic to. If it happens after every meal, it is likely to be a staple food like wheat, milk or egg, so you are being exposed every time you eat. Quantities that seem small are huge to your cells. ...Read more
