    When i started CD they asked if i had a yeast allergy - why?

    I have eczema, and usually its only bad when i'm totaly stressed, the seasons change dramatically, or i use/eat something im allergic to.
    It was the same a few weeks ago when i did my first 2 weeks CD, and now my eczema is awful.
    Just got in the bath and "exfoliated" and so much skin came off it was terrifying. I'm all blotchy, red, and in so much pain i can't bear it.
    Put my steroids on everyday, and usualy it would have cleared over night - its just getting worse.
    My brother who suffers from yeast intolerance for his eczema reckons there's a high quantity in the sachets.....

    Plz help me, my CDC is bloody useless

    Even better - just reading that skin health is related to intestinal health. For about 6 months last year i was drinking 2 yakult a day, and myeczema was gone. Sh*t, if im so sensitive to yeast - im going to have to give up CD

    Hi ya I am exactly like you have always suffered with really bad eczema and CD does bring the worst out in me. I am currently using an Aloe Vera based gel from Holland And Barrett, admittedly it is not clearing it up as fast as it normally would but it is keeping the itch under control, my steroids aren't touching it either, time of year does not help as you say

    For yeast intolerance the bars, sweet sachets and tetras are fine, but the soups are NOT. Hth

    oh my god! having spoken to spooky on S&M (or MSN as some call it) i just rang the doctor.
    He said "leah, we've known about your yeast intolerancy for years" - ERM, HELLO!??!??! would be nice to know. My mama knew nothing either and just went mental on the phone.

    Ive been referred to a dietician, and i have to "re-set" my system by eating salan and white meat for weeks.

    I dont want to have to say goodbye to CD, maybe i'll find a way to live off tetras for the following few months.

    Poop xx

    Could you do 790 so that you eat the salad and white meat and have tetras?
