Common Questions and Answers about Food allergies and yeast infections


1241045 tn?1268250883 If she is getting yeast between her toes that does sound like she is allergic to something. Maybe first try to just change her dog food and remember to do it by adding the "new" a little at a time to the dog food she is now eating and then do away with it completely and keep her on the new food and see if there is change. You probably know switching dog food in too quickly causes diarhea (sp?) Good luck, MO oops, I just read you already tried switching dog food.
1100598 tn?1413127426 My Holistic Vet prescribes it for ear infections and/or Yeast Infections.......I have used it for years before he ever made mention of it...... Other things for you to do: Add Wet food for at least one meal a day.....Extra moisture will help keep toxins flushed from her system and is vital for healthy organ function......No dog should live on dry food alone.... Next: You need to add a good probiotic to her meals....
Avatar f tn dont know but i read last week that the second you eat sugar your immune system weakens and your body is more prone to infection so i would try and limit that as much as possible. You might want to ask in the nutrition forum.
Avatar f tn I went through this and we found that our dog was allergic to an ingredient in his dog food.
209987 tn?1451935465 Usually ear allergies are food related.....Your dogs feet could be food related, environmental, or toxins she walks on daily such as floor cleaners & carpet fresheners.....Try soaking her feet in an Epson Salt bath to get a little relief....This should help..... The sneezing can be caused by any number of things , usually dust mites or again anything she comes in contact with on a regular basis.... You can try the benadryl....The dose is 1mg. per lb. every 8hrs......
Avatar f tn Both flea allergy and food allergy can cause itching and secondary bacterial skin infections, and your veterinarian can evaluate your dog to see if antibiotics are indicated. It only takes one flea to cause a reaction, so be sure to continue to use the Frontline Plus on her and any other pets every month.
1168718 tn?1464983535 with ms, but I have had the same exact question. I was wondering if I had continuous yeast infections and if it had something to do ms. I had recently gone for my annual Pap and all tests were clear for infection..... so what has been causing the "itch". My doc. said that in the beginning (5 months ago) it could have been yeast and I treated it, but to me it kept coming back, or so I thought, she said I must have treated it with the OTC inserts and it went away. But to this day...
5769293 tn?1373926011 If this works my plan it to add some chicken and only chicken and see what happens. Food allergies are found by trial and error, I think, and they can cause a lot of discomfort for both you and your dog. Yes, Yeast stinks on our Westie. He will lick and chew his paws and leggs raw - hair gone and the skin all festered and red. It is the problem we all have when we itch, we scratch and make it worse until something is done to stop the itch.
746512 tn?1388807580 You are certainly a terrific pet sitter to be so concerned about this dog, and by your description, yes it sounds like there is a skin infection (bacterial or yeast or both) probably secondary to an underlying allergic cause (fleas, food allergy or pollen/dust allergies).
1472764 tn?1287588186 What about just eating a lot of garlic? I love it. I even have to stay away from sugar and yeast b/c I get infections so bad. Since I've been pregnant I've been eating a lot of both b/c its the only thing I can stand eating. I'm almost over the sick feeling stage so I can cut those two things out and hopefully have a good rest of the pregnancy. I'm sure the sugar and yeast led to the viral infection too.
Avatar f tn The three types of underlying allergies are parasite (fleas, mites), food allergy, and pollen/dust allergies. If your dog is already on a good flea control such as Advantage or Revolution, then parasites are less likely. Options to treat allergies are to continue to treat symptoms with medications such as antihistamines, fatty acids, bathing, antibiotics, occasional steroids, etc, or to identify and treat the underlying cause.
Avatar f tn My vet says my golden retriever has allergies - food and grass. Have tried various pet food for sensitive skin, some very expensive, and also using Malaseb shampoo weekly. Don't see fleas - ever. She's inside alot but takes lots of walk and plays in the back yard. She chews her paws, scratches everywhere. Have used Benadryl but I hate to think she will have to live on that. Nothing really seems to help. What to do? Have heard fish oil, Vit 3, Omega 3's, help.
Avatar m tn Hello~Some ear infections are due to food allergies, are you aware of any allergies to foods? Also, you could have Candida, this is a type of yeast infection that can cause infections and fungus in the ears. I would go back to your doctor, tell him/her what is going on, and ask to be tested for these issues. To treat a fungus, take a good, high potency pro-biotic, this will help to put the friendly bacteria in your gut.
Avatar n tn symptoms persist despite all of the above, or if the symptoms only occur during certain seasons, then talk to your veterinarian about referral to a veterinary dermatologist for possible allergy skin testing and desensitization injections for pollen/dust allergies to identify and treat the underlying cause of the itch and recurrent infections, rather than just treating symptoms with medications (veterinary dermatologists can be found in your area by going to www.acvd.
Avatar f tn I agree with Red Stars excellent post, I would also like to add that you may have a lactose intolerance, what leads me to say that is you said one time it happened after eating lots of ice cream, and another time after cheese and yogurt. Candida, and food allergies are often caused by low levels of stomach acid. I would certainly give the apple cider vinegar a try, and then the HCL supplements.
Avatar f tn I had seen a nutritionist for a while, but he didn't know very much about yeast allergies. I have several lists of food that show what have yeast and what doesn't, but it is hard to find a list for everything :) Thanks so much for your help!
Avatar n tn She is fine one day and the next day her bottom lip is noticeably swollen, her eyes are red and painful, and she has a yeast infection. During the same time period her blood sugar goes way up (seems like no matter what she eats or how much insulin she is giving herself). She also has flu like symptoms like low grade fever, body ache, and fatigue. Could this all be stress related or is it something more serious? Please help if you can.
Avatar m tn Ringworm is especially common in kittens and cats, while yeast and bacterial infections are more typical in dogs. The ears are lined with skin, so itchy ears in both dogs and cats are an extension of the same types of infections. Your veterinarian will need to make the correct diagnosis in order to properly treat the infection. However, one thing that vets don’t talk about much is why infection occurs.
Avatar f tn I agree w/ Connie......The odor is yeast/fungus....Also, make sure his food is a high quality grain free...Yeast feeds on sugar...All the unnecessary grains/carbs in low quality pet food turns to sugar in the system & feeds the yeast.......Make sure you get the anti-fungal shampoo through your Vet (At least the first time!).....Then you will know what to purchase from now on........Let us know how he's doing....Karla P.S.
Avatar f tn bacteria that is always present in our bodies - and this can cause an overgrowth of yeast, sometimes in our stomachs, but more often in the urinary tract. There are also over the counter medications that can be used if you start getting a yeast infection, however, before using anything, check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure it's ok to use with the antibiotic.
Avatar f tn I recently had sinus surgery and yet am right back where I was before the operation. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. Does anyone have any idea of what I might try or what could be wrong.
Avatar f tn Douching upsets the natural balance of bacteria and yeast in your vagina and will cause infections. 2. Avoid bread and sugary foods as much as possible. If there is yeast in your vagina it is in the rest of your body too and sugar will just feed it. 3. Use condoms if you have sex. You CAN give a yeast infection to a guy (they usually get no symptoms) and then he will just keep passing it back to you. 4. Eat yogurt with live cultures in it - sugar free is best, but any kind helps. 5.
Avatar f tn high levels of simple sugars, processed foods and simple carbs can be a contributor to yeast infections. Some food allergies can also cause yeast infections. Sexual transmission: men CAN have yeast infections (their doctors may call it "jock itch" which can make it tough for a guy to even know he has a yeast infection), and women who are sexual partners can also transmit them between each other.
Avatar f tn I began having constant UTI/Kidney infections and then I would get a yeast infection. I went to the natural health food store here in my town and I was told to take a pro biotic and that should help. I take PB 8, it works great and I also try to drink at least one glass of cranberry juice per day and eat lots of yogurt especially when your taking your antibiotic so it can replace the good bacteria so you don't get yeast infections. Here is the link for the PB 8, it works great http://www.
