This will work better than topical treatments, because it is the root of the

P.S. More info from a website (I added the underline):
Candida Can Cause Many Negative Symptoms That Can Be Misdiagnosed
Back in your intestines candida will eat sugars and starches. It will
ferment them creating alcohol. In some cases it can create enough alcohol to
negatively effect you by causing mild symptoms of intoxication or hangover
In the digestive tract it causes gas to be produced as a byproduct of
fermentation. As it grows in the intestinal tract it takes over sections
that do not have friendly bacteria. Because of this it grows in only certain
areas of the intestines. If you could take out the intestines and open them
up Candida would look like streaks or blotches appearing very unevenly in
certain areas while other areas would be normal.
Candida needs food to grow just like parasites do. The more food Candida
has, the more it can grow. In tends to grow like a weed in your intestines.
When it has food it perks up and spreads. Your own immune system can inhibit
its growth it most cases. But when enough friendly bacteria are killed off
by “Cipro” your immune system will not be able to fight off Candida.

beer foam or like cottage cheese producing itching and burning and well as a
sweet odor. This is the classic vaginal yeast infection.
In the mouth, it’s overgrowth is called “thrush”. It causes a heavy white

we sweat and cause chronic infections that continue to return despite
treatment. It can invade the scalp and cause dandruff.
When this happens the scalp will get particularly itchy and may itch when
you eat sweets. Dry flaky scalp may mean Candida is causing B vitamin
