Are skin patches a symptom of Candida?

I’ve had a Candida overgrowth for over two years and thought I had experienced every symptom possible, but recently I started getting a few patches on my body that are colored a reddish brown. The patches are pretty large, about as big as my hand, and one spot is peeling the skin across the patch. Is this related to Candida or do I have yet another disease that’s causing this?

Once you start a good Candida diet and treatment, you can develop die-off symptoms of course, but what most doctors or Candida ‘experts’ normally fail to tell you is; not only can the Candida symptoms that you’ve had all along increase in intensity, but you can also develop new symptoms of a Candida overgrowth as well, and this sounds like what you are experiencing. It’s possible to have the Candida overgrowth to spread into the pharynx or oral cavity as well as the larynx. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that the population of your infestation has increased; it’s just part of the elimination process which is also referred to as the “healing crisis.”  If you are being strict with the diet and taking an antifungal such as coconut oil, then the infestation will not increase in size, but you are going through a very strong elimination process, and eventually your body will repay you for the suffering you’re enduring. However, if you are eating foods that are not on the diet and instead are feeding the Candida, then the opposite is true; you are probably not going through a healing process, and your symptoms are increasing because the infestation is growing in size.
