What Does Yeast (Candida) Related Acne Look Like?

Starting in 1982, I noticed some of my clients had certain blemishes/acne that I could not help. I would shake my head and tell them that it was “something in their blood”. I did not know what, but it was not a typical acne condition.

I had one client named Barbara. She came to me for more than two years. She had what looked like cigarette burns all over her face, brows, eyelids and neck (acne is never on eyelids-never). She also had hyper- and hypo- pigmentation. It was a pretty bad situation for her. The “cigarette-burn-like” lesions were raw looking in the middle with “crispy” brown edges. These edges were where scabs were trying to form but could not due to the yeast activity in the raw area. Usually, this type of blemish itches. When they first come up, they are in the form of nodules (Photo 2).

You can clearly see that the nodules are NOT associated with a follicle (pore) and that the bump is in the tissue rather than in the follicle.  It is difficult to leave this type of blemish alone because it itches and it is painful.

When trying to heal, this blemish has a very difficult time due to the yeast activity. When healing finally takes place, you are not really healed as you will see red marks in place of the raw lesion.  Over time, there will be some healing and as seen in the above Photo 1 and at right Photo 3, the marks are brown (hyperpigmented) or white (hypopigmented).  Sometimes the scaring is deeper as in Photo 3. This is partly due to client scraping with fingernails becasue of the itching and/or damage by destructive yeast destroying the living tissue.  You can also see the hyper- and hypo- pigmentation here in Photos 1 & 3.

Back to Barbara…
Barbara came to me 4 weeks after her last facial and her skin was perfect. I do mean perfect. No acne, no pigmentation, nothing.  How could that be. She discovered she had yeast (she had other symptoms as well). That was the answer I had been looking for for quite some time (there ‘WAS’ something in the blood).  Then as the years passed, I had many clients with varying types of blemishes that looked similar to Barbara’s. We gave them a protocol to work with and amazing results happened quickly. While it’s not an “overnight” cure, we can clear it seemingly overnight and with some modifications in your lifestyle and diet, we (you and Brea) can get it clear and rid your body of yeast. And, in one month’s time, you will have clear, perfect skin. It will take some dedication on your part and I know you can do it.

I have the answers for this skin problem and it is amazing how quickly clearing can take place when placed on the proper protocol.

What type of acne do you have?

Basically, there are two types of acne.

acneFollicular Acne: A formation of a comedone (blackhead).  The opening of the hair follicle (pore as you may call it) becomes blocked/congested by dead skin cells and sebum (oil).  Often, this blockage continues to increase in size until the follicle wall will break and all the debris mentioned (cells & oil) plus bacteria rush into the internal body. Immediately, the body takes control rushing white blood cells to the area to clean to “digest” the debris.  You will see an inflamed bump and then a pustule. The pustule is the good sign that your body is working to clear the intrusion into the body.

nodulesSystemic Acne: This type of acne often appears of out of the clear blue. One moment there is no blemish, next thing you know you have a red and sore bump on your skin.  I often say that it is the type of blemish that when touched (as in try to squeeze it) that it hurts all the way down to your big toe.  Ouch! It is painful. Many clients come to me with this blemish and scars on their faces from squeezing, trying to get “something” out.  This type of blemish has NO “something” to get out.  All they usually see is lymphatic fluid and then, of course, after all the squeezing, they end up with a sore/scab on their face. Sometimes they have squeezed or scraped with fingernails and will end up with a scar and one they would not have had if they’d left it alone altogether.  The approach to clearing this type of blemish is totally different from the Follicular Acne blemish.

yeast caused acneYeast Blemish: This blemish also appears out of nowhere and it itches. It is usually caused when their is an excess of yeast in the body’s system. It leaves dark marks and sometimes light marks where each blemish has been. This blemish is not related to oily skin and can appear in the strangest of places, like the eyelid, ear lobes, neck, arms, etc. It also has a difficult time healing. It requires taking the right pro-biotic and taking it in therapeutic doses. It may also mean taking a look at the diet and changes that could be made.  This is a systemic blemish and I wanted to talk about it a bit.

miliaMilia: Milia is the technical term for small, hard, white bumps that can show up—mostly on the face. I often say they look like tiny pearls under the skin.These frustrating bumps are incredibly stubborn and cannot be “squeezed out”. Most people cannot get rid of them or should not really try. Though milia aren’t harmful in any way, getting rid of them can be tough on your own. They do not turn into pustules or inflamed bumps. However, they can continue to fill and become larger over time. This is an easy fix at Virtu.
