Skin Diseases Fungal infections
Skin yeast infections were first discovered and classified in 1839 by Schoelein. The causative fungi in that case was a dermatophyte and was later named Trichophyton schoenleinii. This was the first microorganism shown to cause infection or disease in humans.
In 1925, B. Shelmire discovered skin yeast caused by candida and published his findings in Arch. Dermatol. Syph. 12. Since then these candida skin infections have been the topic of many research papers and studies.
The infections usually fall under three classifications:
1. Superficial infections caused by yeasts that have the ability to use keratin for food in the skin, hair, and nails.
2. Skin infections that happened because of a traumatic event and the yeasts were able to colonize the associated site.
3. Life threatening systemic yeast infections that are often seen in immunocompromised individuals.
Most of these infections are caused by dermatophytes that are further classified as either Epidermophyton, Microsporum, and Trichophyton species. These yeasts are further sub-classified under these main species into approximately 40 other subspecies at this time. Most of these classified pathogenic fungi fall under the tinea subspecies.
According to C. C. Kibbler; jock itch, toenail fungus, dandruff, athlete's foot, and ringworm, are most often caused by one of the dermatophytes and infect 10 to 15% of the entire worlds population.
Causative factors for dermatophyte infections are most often associated with animals, especially cats, public swimming pools and public baths.
In healthy individuals, candida albicans and candida tropicalis are rarely associated with skin yeast on areas of the skin that are free of hair. In these areas, candida guilliermondii and candida parapsilosis are most often the culprits.
In areas where skin meets, such as the folds of the skin, or where there is high heat and moisture, candida albicans is the most prevalent infectious yeast.
Skin yeast infections have been linked with elevated blood cholesterol levels. For instance when toenail fungus was treated, cholesterol levels were reduced. (British Medical Journal--1995) This of course would mean, without a doubt, the fungus contributed to the high cholesterol.
Professor A.V. Costantini, former head of the WHO, in 1994 found that cholesterol binds fungal mycotoxins in the blood stream as an immune system response to these toxins. Get rid of the fungus and your body will not need the excess cholesterol.
People with infections of the lungs have been found to suffer from skin yeast. Some may even resemble skin cancer. (C. C. Kibbler) Candida albicans can cause diaper rash and perleche, dry red skin or cracked skin at the corners of the mouth.
Other skin diseases like psoriasis, acne, hives, and eczema don't seem to have any relation to an internal fungus infection. But when people are treated for a fungal infection that have these other skin diseases, their external skin problems go away. There are many studies showing that psoriasis is indeed a fungal infection caused by either the fungus itself or their mycotoxins being released into the blood stream. (A.V. Costantini 1994) Psoriasis is supposedly incurable. This is just not so.
C. C. Kibler goes on to prove the above paragraph by Constantini; The skin is the largest organ in the body. It protects your insides from the outside and more importantly keeps your insides from becoming outsides. It also can reveal many inside health problems because it does release toxins in the form of sweat from the body. Skin lesions can be at times early indications of a systemic internal yeast infection.

The concentration of chemicals in a dilute bleach bath is considerably lower than the concentration in hot tub and pool water. There are no known risks for individuals who are not allergic to the chemicals contained in household bleach. Individuals with dry or sensitive skin may experience increased dryness following bleach treatments. The benefits of bleach therapy include the alleviation of symptoms from chronic diseases like eczema and psoriasis and the cure and prevention of viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal skin infections.
