Hi, Shroom. Funny you should mention it. I've been taking a high dose of caprylic acid for several days. Probably too high. Last night I'm sure that I experienced a blood pressure spike. This morning I woke up with a small number of red, scaly patches on my legs. The patches are raised, and the largest is about 1 cm.
If I am not mistaken, about half the adult population is infected with herpes type 1 (oral herpes). And of course, anyone who has had chicken pocks also has a herpes infection. Canker sores and cold sores are evidence of a herpes infection. Yep, plenty of herpes out there with out even going below the waist.
If you believe that candia compromises the immune sytem to the point where the herpes becomes active, you're very probably right. AIDS patients, organ transplant recipients, chemo therapy patients, anyone with a repressed immune system often suffer a terrible case of shingles (herpes).
