Candida From Dog?


my brothers dog has ear yeast infections and when i babysit the dog, which is often since he travels out of state and the dog stays with me, the dog also sleeps in my bed, i noticed i have an itchy rash lately on my skin and the dermatologist does not know what it is and i was wondering if i could get it from the dog by scratching her ears

Hello Mike,

It is possible to get candida from dogs, but I wouldn't start treating it with creams unless your dermatologist makes a sure diagnosis. It could be an allergic reaction, maybe not even to the dog but the shampoo he was washed with. You can try taking natural oral antifungals (like coconut oil) and high quality probiotics , but I would also suggest finding a dermatologist who can diagnose what the rash is. The worst thing you can do is try to treat one infection with medicine made for another.
