Hi everyone, This week I had suddenly developed big dark melasma spots beside my nose under my eyes and very patchy looking skin all over the rest of my face. I have been so sad and cried heaps. I have never had melasma before and I had not been in the sun at all (because I live in Europe and the summer is not here yet). So I looked all over at forums and decided to try a cosmelan mask yesterday. However seeing that I today didn't have any tightness or redness in the face (I don't think it worked) I decided to continue looking if I could find some other wonder cure. And I just have to say that I'm so thankful that I found this forum. After reading the blog I am soooo happy.
First of all you made me so optimistic that there was a cure with the Apple cider vinegar and then almost at the end of the first page of great ideas and stories from you guys I realised like some of you that I have candida (which explains why Apple Cider Vinegar works so well because helps kill the fungus). I stopped using the tea tree oil two weeks ago because I was afraid that it was to harsh on my skin but after today's research I have found that this was the worst thing I could have done because that keeps Candida at bay as well. So I can only recommend that you guys try tea tree oil and see if it works on you because that might imply that you also have hyperpigmentation/melasma from candida. I have found medical journals saying tea tree works better than acv. I hope now that I will be able to get it under control and that the melasma/hyperpigmentation will go away with it. I will keep you informed and please ask if there is anything I can do at all for you guys seeing that you have done so much for me.
