The reason I use the term thrush and perioral dermatitis interchangeably is because I see them both as having gut dysbiosis as the same route cause and I also don't have a 100% diagnosis of either. Dermatologists have not been of much use to me.
what I found so eerie was how many of my symptoms were described by others with this bacterial infection. No specific mention of EC though but MANY skin related issues.
GI = gastrointestinal.
I know you've been on here for a long time and I think it's time you saw a naturopath and tell them about your EC. If it's just EC you have you are very lucky. EC was one of my first skin symptoms and ever since I have been collecting more skin problems.
