On nystatin for suspected candida. After 3 weeks (3x daily), I developed migraine-like sinus headaches. Could it be delayed herx reaction?

On nystatin for suspected candida.  After 3 weeks (3x daily), I developed migraine-like sinus headaches.  Could it be delayed herx reaction?

Yes it is possible: Some say the Jarisch-herxheimer reaction stops after abour 1-2 weeks, however, it all depends on the person and the body's ability to detoxify rapidly. To be sure press down on your sinuses to see whether you do have tenderness. In addition, when you bend down (bent over forward) do you feel pressure in your sinuses, if so. . Then what you are experiencing may be actual sinus headaches. ...Read more

I am worried. I have a male yeast infection I am pretty sure, I also have mild headache and nosebleed. Not dripping, just when I blow my nose?

Not likely to be: Related. The yeast infection can be treated with over the counter meds. The headache is not unusual but the nose bleed should be checked by a ENT. This may mean you have a nasal infection or could just be related to a severe cold with nose running and constant blowing.
See your doc for further advice. ...Read more

It : It would be reasonable to take a repeat pregnancy test in that situation. Taking it with your first morning urine can be helpful, as that is when the urine is most concentrated. Ask your pharmacist for the most accurate test that is also easy to read. If your symptoms persist, it would be reasonable to consult your physician. ...Read more

Can candida die off cause chest pain? Recently started trying this and woke up this morning hurting. Yikes!!

Candida: I think you may have to explain what candida 'die off' means. There is no such thing; there is also no such candida illness that would cause internal infection or chest pain. Every single living human has candida on them and in them. This is not a disease. ...Read more

Have smelly breath in the morning im scared this is candida which can become cancerous will I die?

Have smelly breath in the morning im scared this is candida which can become cancerous will I die?

Candida and Cancer: Although I have seen some websites & reports linking candida as a possible contributing cause of some cancers, to my knowledge, no peer-reviewed articles in medical journals support that theory. Simply visit your dentist to find out the cause of your morning breath, rule out candida in your mouth & get a full soft tissue cancer screening. Poor oral hygiene & a dry mouth are the most likely causes. ...Read more

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Yes: Yes, certain probiotics may help to kill candida resulting in a Jarisch-Herxheimer or die-off reaction. This is caused by toxins from the dead yeast which can trigger inflammatory cytokines. Drinking more water, taking chlorella and/or charcoal, a good multivitamin, liposomal glutathione, milk thistle and natural anti-inflammatory agents like curcumin should help. Die-off symptoms lessen over time. ...Read more
