I've had ulcerative colitis for alittle over 2 years now!  I had a colonoscopy then was diagnosed.  THe UC just started out of nowhere.  Very wierd.  ANyways, ever since the bloddy stools, and BM happened, i've had other symptoms like: skin rashes only in my hair and face ( its yeast spores and keratin) that itches and is inflammed, My facial hair is very rough and dry, i have eye problems ( they twitch and look cloudy sometimes), lost tons of wieght, my joints hurt, and brain fog sometimes.  Has anyone had similiar symptoms?  Has anything helped?  Could it be something else? Maybe C.diff, candida, etc...
I had a biopsy done on my face b/c the yeast spores were all over and were coming out of my hair follicles.,  THere round and hard like keratin!  THe results were keratin and yeast spores!  Any help???  Thanks :-)

Hi..what meds are you on/were on for UC?

What did the doc prescribe for the follicilitis caused by yeast?

You are clearly describing candida from what's "out there"....have you been checked for other disorders? Does your diet lead you toward candida?

It wouldn't be c.diff...have you been checked for that?

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

Right now im only on colazal.  3pills, 3 times a day!  It works ok.  Theres still some blood in my stools and its hard for me to maintain any weight.  My normal weight is about 184-188 at 5'11.  Now, its 168-171.  It's really weird, cause I eat alot!  Who Knows,???? I know the docs dont!!!
As for the derms, I've been on to yeast meds orally, Diflucan and Grifulan (Sp?)..  Back to back with these!  It got worse after i was done!  Really killed me!  Topically, I use fungal meds...  Nothing works!  Diet does help...  It's hard though! 
Now, I've used humaworm, which is a natural pill that kills parasites!  This has been the only other thing to help besides the diet!  I've done two 30 day cycles of it...  Doing another in about a month.... 
Don't know what else to do????  Thanks!
Oh, I dont think Ive ever been checked for c.diff???  I have had stool samples that all came back negative!!!!
