This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.

Does he have any other medical conditions? What is his age?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
he is 56, already said psorais, bad outbreak when this started, became diabectic at same time, has had nueropahty for years
Expert:  DIEGO BONILLA replied 11 months ago.

The cause of his bad candida is likely diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause problems like the one you described. At the same time the psoriasis flare contributes to the worsening on his candidiasis. He should follow with his PCP to have both conditions under control. Let me know if you have any other questions.
