I have had problems with my hair on and off for approx 20 years and I have just recently gotten it under control. I have started taking a formula made with Lactated Pepsin, Black Snake Root Extract, Essence of Wild Ginseng, Atomic Iodine, Extract of Liver, and Grain Alcohol. You can look that up and get it! I also use Pennsylvania crude oil and Vaseline on my scalp; I rub it in and then I use a small vibrator with a cup attachment for 20-30 minutes. I use this approx 3x a month. I also use Listerine on my scalp after I wash my hair, which I wash with an Olive Oil based shampoo and conditioner. I use Listerine about 1x per month. However, it will not hurt you to use it more! When I haven't drank any alcohol, I use the "Violet Ray" machine on my scalp for 2-3 minutes whenever I feel the need to use it. It may sound like a lot, and maybe it is, but I have done it for so long, it is second nature, the only thing I added recently was the formula.

Tinea Capitis (Cure !!!)
this should be curable for ANY and EVERYONE who is suffering '' Tinea Capitis '' .... i had to deal with the infection for almost a year until i tried 2 things
1. '' CLEAR NAIL POLISH '' this is the main remedy
(as far as to MAKE THE HAIR GROW BACK) , apply either at night everynight and the next morning PEEL or SCRAPE the polish off (yes it may hurt) and u should start noticing hair growing back little by little within 3 days .... for FULL spot treatment it will take either a month or two depending on how often u use polish .... 2 coats a day should be faster
BUT you need to use remedy #2 1st for a month ,#2 below
2.because tinea capitis is a fungal infection UNDER your scalp the polish aides for the hair growth but as far as KILLING THE FUNGUS SPREAD u need to get a presciption pill called '' Grifulvin '' and u need to take one a day for a month BEFORE U START USING THE POLISH , you need to at least stop the fungus from living PERIOD (this pill has a dozen side effects one mainly being migraines ALL DAY so just try to withstand them all) .... try this out it worked for me i suffered with TC for a year .... my nightmare is OVER .... and so should yours .... god bless

Good day! This post is about the treatment of human demodex on scalp, first, I would like to tell you guys my story on having human demodex, several months ago I have had these redness and itchiness in my scalp accompanied by a foul odor, the condition threatened me enough so I scheduled a visit to a dermatologist immediately to prevent it from getting worse, the she told me it was human demodex caused by mites. I then asked for a treatment, cure or remedy for it, she gave me both these Shampoo D'modex and Hair n Scalp conditioner, they are to be used together for best results, both of them are used to eliminate the mites. After a few days, I already noticed obvious improvements, the foul odor was gone immediately, the itchiness and redness lessened. I hope this post would help people in the future for treatment of human demodex. Thank you!

I need help, my scalp is slowing but surely balding, lately there are sores that present with pus. I have had this problem for about 6 years now and I am getting exasperated. Now I can only wear wigs. The bold patches have come close to the forehead.
After visiting many skin specialists, some of whom thought it was a genetic problem, two of them finally believe it is a fungal infection. I am currently taking grisofulvin, so far 3 weeks.
Please, if you know of any solution, I will be really greaful. Thanks. Carol.

Hi, Ted, My husband and I've been drinking green smoothies for the last two months. Though it is very difficult to change our American Standard Diet overnight, just having a green smoothie once a day in the morning changed our diet by 20 % right away. We noticed a lot of improvement in our health -- headaches went away, regulated stool, feeling more relaxed, no need to take tons of sleep aid every night, better sleep, lots of energy, etc. Along with this, kind of at the same time my husband started to have scalp sores. Maybe it is just a coincidence. Anyway, the sores hurt and itch. He tried organic psoriasis shampoo, but it maked it worse. I dry them with alcohol. It seems to take the itch away. At the same time, I've been reading a lot about alkaline water and I started to give him ph balance enzymes. The sores seem to go away for a couple of days, but then they come back.
Also, he has had a mild allergy lately, I gave him magnesium capsules and added oxygen drops in his smoothie for stress and mental clarity. Too many vitamins? Too many toxins? Allergy reaction? Fungus? Lack of lipase enzyme? I forgot to say he got his gall bladder removed two years ago, so his body cannot handle fat digestion, he's had a lot of diarrhea. But with intake of enzymes it has been under contral. Anyway, the sores seem to improve by the end of the day after I apply alcohol and he does not scratch them, but then they start itching again and it drives him crazy. Today I noticed that after he scratched them, the inside of the big sores looks yellow-greenish. Is it puss? Though the sores look flat. I applied some alcohol on the sores again. It helped. They became more pinkish and the inside looks pale.
My question is: Is there any universal natural remedy with the anti fungus effect for any scalp sores? Thank you very much for your answer. :)

I developed red bloches several places on my head inside my hair line, mainly on sides and front area. Some even appeared to look like ringworm but Derm Doctor said it was not ringworm. Used cortizone cream to control for awhile with several dandruff shampoos that did nothing to help. Then started using Selsun Blue Medicated and the rash cleared up quickly. It has not returned so I continue to use only Selsun Blue. You might want to try it.

Hi, 8 months ago I went to a forest hotel and wore a helmet for one of the activities, once on I realised the helmet absolutely stunk but I was already on the equipment so just thought I'd wash my hair once finished and thought no more of it....... Until 2 days after washing I could smell that funky awful smell, it has been like this ever since. I've tried nizoral, hibiclense, dial antibacterial, Jason dandruff, nothing works. Please help me as I am really depressed because of it. Valentina

I've experienced scalp issues for years after an initial fungal infection from a beauty salon. I've been tested since for any reoccurence, but not for bacterial infection until this summer. Now that I'm diagnosed with a staphylococcal folliculitis scalp infection, the problem is that the doctor only wants to prescribe Cipro or other fluoroquinolone products which are deadly and I refuse to take. Since then I've been researching the cures posted and have discovered that staph bacterial infections may have a different treatment plan than fungal infections. I've tried the vinegar which doesnt' stop the itch and alternatively sea salt which temporarily stops the itch. I haven't tried the antibiotics everyone else speaks of because I've read the posts and am leary about taking drugs that may cause even more issues. What treatment plan or combinations do you suggest and how should I apply them? Vinegar vs. ACV, sea salt, peroxide, oregano, tea tree or coconut oil? Does light therapy or uv light exposure help?

Hello, I am having scalp infection with excessive hair fall from past 6 year due to which I have lost 50% of my hair from top. I came across this website last year and after going through several post, I used borax to wash my hair initially but that didn't helped me at all. So, I started using ACV diluted form on my hair. It didn't cured my hair fall and scalp infection entirely but helped at least 50%.
Few days ago, I thought to use TED's alkalizing remedy's of mixing 1/4 tb baking soda and 2 tbp of ACV in 1 cup of water. I waited till the bubbles gone off and then spray it on my hair this solution. My itching is reduced 95% and am seeing less oily hair and feel the mixtures has helped. I didn't feel the same when I used ACV.
But, I searched about this mixture I.e. baking soda and ACV over internet and found it's harmful to use. Even first applying baking soda and then rinse with ACV is not good. Could anybody help me whether its safe to use the mixture of ACV and Baking soda on hair? Does it damage the hair over a period of time if used daily? PLEASE HELP

Regarding the use of tea tree oil and lavender oil for scalp infections, how long should the oil be left on the scalp? It is written to leave it on overnight. Is that supposing that the person washing his/her hair in the morning? I have been applying the oils once a day, but I don't wash my hair every day (I never had -- it becomes too dry). Instead, I have been using a wooden comb to stimulate the area, rubbing with warm water, and then reapplying on nights when I don't wash my hair. Is this unhealthy? I've been experiencing no negative side effects. Just wondering.
Also, for how many days should a person apply the oil? Is there a limit? I am on my forth day and plan to continue until my scalp feels normal again, but am afraid to overdo it.

Scalp Fungus: Is there any reason why I could not use the ACV/Hydrogen Peroxide & Tea Tree/Lavender solutions while my son is taking the GRIS-PEG 250 that was prescribed by his pediatrician (for 6 weeks)? Is there any contraindication between the two treatments?

I cannot believe this works! I stopped after work to pick up the ingredients - put it on my head last night, did not rinse out and the itching stopped, I didn't scratch at all. I had at least 12 red spots on my head from scratching the scabs and at least two raised welts, welts are gone, scalp is dry, a little red but nothing like before - repeated in shower this morning, and rinsed out - no itching at all! I did order the teatree oil with lavender on amazon - they do have a combo, for around $7.00. I am going to use this overnight when I receive. Thank you so much TED!!!! You literally saved my life. I have short dark hair, and this was becoming a problem as I could not stop scratching. Thank you so much! Question, how long should I use the mixture, as I have some scabs left?
