Accentuated allergies. If you have a strong overgrowth of Candida, you will find that this adversely affects the way you react to your environment, and massively accentuates your allergies. If you have allergies to different seasonal and environmental effects, you will find that these flare up far more when you have a Candida infection. Food allergies are also very adversely affected. As a matter of fact, some studies show that a strong Candida infection can actually cause allergies to begin with. Your doctor can refer you to an allergist, who will work closely with you to find out what substances in your environment are actually at the root of your allergy, after which you will have to remove them from your environment or diet.
