ADHD Diseases


Other infections linked to symptoms of ADHD include: Candida albicans (a common yeast infection); allergic diseases (i.e. atopic eczema, chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis) 9; varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which causes chickenpox; herpes zoster (the shingles virus); middle ear infections 10 and allergic conjunctivitis. 11 An infection with Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria causing Lyme disease, can result in symptoms that mimic ADHD.
