What to do if I have read that allergies is cause by candida on the intestine walls. what medicine is effective in killing candida(fungi)?

Be more discerning: You're an adult and I hope that you don't actually believe everything that you read.

Is there a relationship between allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome, candida, intestinal flora and antibiotics?

Is there a relationship between allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome, candida, intestinal flora and antibiotics?

For some yes : For some children all of those things play a role in exacerbating symptoms and can be seen more frequently in a child who had many infections and antibiotics starting at a young age.
