Dr. Stoll...candida and my husband...

Hi! I would like to see if you have ever seen or heard of this
before, I cannot find info on this symptom anywhere:

My husband has this patch of pink skin on his buttocks,
surrounding his anus, about 2-3 inches around it in a circle. So
when he stands up, you don't see it, but if he lays on his stomach
and you spread his buttocks, you see it. I am not familiar with
diaper rash, but I can imagine it looking lke this(?). It is very pink,
and the edges of the pink are dark, like scarring almost. He
doesn't realize it, but while he is asleep, he scratches it, really
"claws" it and it makes me cringe, it seems like it would be raw and
painful. But not during the day...he never complains about it, ever.
In case this helps, here is a little about his health:

He is 28, very healthy and energetic, eats very healthy (similar to
me on my candida diet), some sugar but usually really good.
Plenty of fiber and veggies. He is of French decent and lived in the
States for 7 years now, no digestive issues EVER, iron stomach,
(complete opposite of me). He is very thin though, eats and never
can gain any weight, in fact when he eats really healthy like me he
tends to lose weight and I have to feed him more. He has tiny itchy
red bumps on the back of his arms that wax and wane, restless
legs syndrome at night while sleeping. As I said in the posting
right befor this one, I think I gave him external candida recently
because after we had sex he developed peeling skin on his penis,
and it has happened before, but it goes away and he is back to
normal. And he says that this buttock area has been like this
BEFORE he met me, so I don't think it is that. I know that your skin
is a reflection of what is going on inside of you, but should I
suspect allergies, anything particular? LGS? I am thinking maybe
the acidity or composition of his stool maybe causes this after
wiping? I would like to have your expertise on this...thank you so
much! I want to nip any potential problems in the bud before they
would get bad, or stop worrying for nothing...thank you , Noelle

Hi, Red.

There are several things that can cause this but they are all directly related to LGS. One that you can quickly resolve is excessive fatty acid excretion (a normal part of the stool that functions normally as a lubricant). This are EXTREMELY caustic and, even though the skin around the anus is normally VERY resistant to this (placed upon the skin anywhere else it would cause a rash within an hour or so) there is a limit to even this resistance.

To rule this one out he will have to stop trying to wipe clean and use a soapy wash cloth every time he has a bowel movement AND at least 3 times a day even when he does not have a bowel movement that day. This saponification effect will stop the irritation within a few days and, if he can stop scratching, will heal up within a month.

If his breaking of the skin has allowed candida to get established it will be necessary to deal with that later. This could also be a product of other kinds of parasites but that, too, would have to be directly related to LGS.

One thing at a time. Let us know how the saponification process helps.

Walt
