No, I've not been to a dermatologist, although I've thought about it. The problem is, I live in an area where there are a total of six small towns, actually a few you leave and go right into the next. Nevertheless, being a lot of just small towns, there are no dermatologists in the area that I would really trust to go to, not about this. The closest 'large' city is over 50 miles away, and I've done some research on the Internet about the doctors there. There are several who specialize in Candida, and as a last resort, I could make an appointment with one of those. But really, I don't have any faith in even one of the prescription antifungals that I've researched, so what does one do but continue with the plan at hand?
I'm going to try the rutabaga again in the morning, and continue to increase the amount until I know the die-off has started.
