I have a red rash on my penis shaft near my groin area. It is also secreting clear like fluid from the rash. Is it eczema/dermatitis/yeast infction?

Not likely: Johns123, it sounds like something you need to have checked out by a physician. Based on the symptoms and signs you have described it could be several things. Eczema typically does not secrete clear fluid, nor does dermatitis. Yeast is a possibility but you still need to rule out other things such as herpatic lesions especially if there is pain associated with the rash. ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash.

What to do if i have yeast overgrowth digestion problem and seborrheic dermatitis on scalp. Is eating carpylic acid will help to get rid of it ??

What to do if i have yeast overgrowth digestion problem and seborrheic dermatitis on scalp. Is eating carpylic acid will help to get rid of it ??

Probably won't help: Intestinal "yeast overgrowth" and "systemic candidiasis" are controversial at best. Most physicians consider them urban myths, which is my view. Certainly these things have nothing to do with seborrheic dermatitis, and I doubt caprylic acid will help either problem. It's probably harmless, so feel free to try. But probably you'll do best with a traditional MD to evaluate your GI and skin symptoms. ...Read more

Would not worry: The effects of ingesting small amounts of sugar on isolated occasions should not cause any problems even if you are sensitive. Restricting daily sugar intake is something that requires diligence and it is clear that you are paying attention. Keeping intake of processed sugar low is an important health consideration. ...Read more

I've been on the candida diet for a year now to clear my seborreic dermatitis and it says I can't eat peas or carrots . Can I eat them now ?

I've been on the candida diet for a year now to clear my seborreic dermatitis and it says I can't eat peas or carrots . Can I eat them now ?

Probably: It takes a long time to reduce candida levels but it sounds like you have been on a strict version of the candida diet. It seems reasonable to add peas and carrots back in; if symptoms worsen then reduce but it seems unlikely. Besides diet I hope you have been taking antifungal herbs & probiotics!
