Ted's Scalp Infection Remedies
Ted from Bangkok: "Apple Cider Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide are used as a shampoo to cure scalp infections. You can also mix chamomile, tea tree and lavender oils together and apply to the scalp as a shampoo. Do not take these remedies internally!
I have treated successful over 100 people with persistent scalp infections by preparing a shampoo made of just tea tree and lavender oil alone and have been successful.
Recipe using Apple Cider Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide. Dilute them by 1:10:
- 1 part ACV
- 1 part Hydrogen Peroxide
- with 10 parts water
Use like a shampoo and rinse after the shampoo is "finished" to make the cure for scalp infections even more potent.
Leave the mixed solution on scalp for about one minute before rinsing away in water. Repeat this again if the infection is severe enough. Avoid getting the solution in the eyes as it may cause stinging. You do not need large amounts of the concoction, only small amounts... just enough to get it to the scalp.
The most effective solution for those who also have a severe form of scalp infection (and loss of hair) is the use of pure tea tree oil plus lavender.
The mixture is 4 parts tea tree oil to 1 part lavender oil.
Some people may feel a painful sting, so you may dilute this further with olive oil. Leave it on for the whole night. I have tried it on my mother (a pure solution, but I dilute it with aloe vera oil) and it cured her of hair loss - and she is about 74 years old. My sister and a friend also have severely itchy scalps. Using the same essential oils noted above worked very well. Warning: the quality source of lavender and tea tree may vary and may not work with the same degree."

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] Hey Ted, I started having scalp problems when I was 15 years old. I had nasty pustules on my head, thinning hair along with a itchy and flaky beard when I hit 18 years old. The doctors didnt help much. Seems like pills are their answers to everything. Anyways, I am 26 now and I read your post several months back. I tried the ACV & H202 with the tea tree oil and lavendar and my hair hasn't looked this good since it started falling out. My scalp is fine and I see hair growning on my scalp in places that use to be really thin. Now it seems like it has been at a stand still and sometimes it looks just a tad bit worst. I am thinking it must be something that I am eating, something extra that I need to take or both. Do you have any suggestions for me? My scalp looks 60 percent better and I need something to help it get over the hump. By the way, sometimes the skin on the side of my nose gets dry and cracky. That's when I notice my hair getting thin again. Maybe the two are linked. Please help! Thanks!
[YEA] I USED THE 20 MULE TEAM BORAX LAST NIGHT AS A SHAMPOO ... IT IS THE BEST MY HEAD HAS FELT IN 32 YEARS. AND NOW I KNOW TRICHOTILLOMANIA IS NOT A CONDITION OF BAD NERVES, I BELIEVE THIS IS EITHER A MITE UNDER THE SKIN OR A FUNGUS. AND DR.S WONT HELP .THEY DON'T WANT TO ADMIT THERE IS NO CURE. THEY JUST KEEP YOU COMING BACK AND SHOVING MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS.I HAVE 5 SORES ON MY HEAD,4 OF THEM HAVE BEEN THER FOR 2 OR MORE YEARS 1 OF THEM FOR ABOUT 1 YEAR THEIR ALWAYS SORE OR HALF HEALD AND SORE UNDERNEITH. AFTER USING THE BORAX LAST NIGHT. 3 ARE HEALED AND NO SORENESS UNDER NEITH, AND 2 ARE VERY SLIGHTLY SORE THIS MORNING. MY SCALP FEALS LIKE SCALP AND MY HAIR FEELS LIKE NORMAL HAIR ...... ABSOLUTLY AMAZING. IF IT IS A MITE.. I'M GETTING RID OF ALL PILLOWS . I JUST RECENTLY MOVED HERE AND AND BOUGHT A WATER BED, SO THAT IS NEW AND NO MITES IN THE MATTRESS. I WILL CONTINUE THIS TREATMENT ON MON .WED AND FRI. FOR A MONTH AND THEN GO TO THE ACV AND PEROXIDE IF NEEDED.I HAVE ALSOUSED TEA TREE SHAMPOO FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS IT HAS HELPED BUT NOT CURED.. I DID USE TEA TREE OIL STRAIGHT ABOUT 6 WEEKS AGO 1 TIME MAYBE THAT DID HELP SOME. BUT NOTHING HAS WORKED LIKE THE 20 MULE TEAM BORAX AND MY HAIR IS SOFT AND SHINING AND MANAGEABLE TODAY FIRST TIME IN 32 YEARS, AMAZING
[YEA] It works! I have been using the two scalp remedies and I just noticed today all these tiny growing hairs all over my head. Thanks Ted!
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I have had chronic scalp infections for around 25 years. My symptoms are very painful green puss filled pimples when it gets really bad, and primarily in the back part of my scalp. I didn't do anything for it when I was a teen, because my parents wouldn't pay for any medical treatments for it. As an adult I have regularly gone to the doctor for this problem and they always prescribe anti-biotics and some anti fungle cream. The anti-biotics worked for only a short time before I would get the condition back. The anti fungal cream didn't seem to do anything but make me feel more uncomfortable. I took antibiotics around three months ago and was doing great until now. The infection came back with a vengence. My priority this morning was to try Ted's approach and shop for the supplies: ACV, Hydrogen Peroxide, and Epsom Salt, costing me just a few bucks. The directions for mixing Ted does give, as 1 part ACV, 1 part Hydrogen Peroxide, and 10 parts water. I made a solution of 1/2 cup Epsom salt and 1 quart water to clean and soften my scalp first. I also bought a turkey baster to apply the soltion to my scalp while in the tub, with the back of my head dipped in a plastic bag to hold the solution on my head. I kept the salt solution on as long as I could, then rinsed it off. Then I did the same with the ACV, Hydrogen Peroxide solution, but only for a couple minutes. It did not hurt or feel bad puting it on. Actually it was soothing. I must say that after this first try, my scalp really felt better, and most of the pain went away and became more tolerable, as the swelling went down. I did have my wife apply triple antibiotic ointment on the sores after I dried my hair. I also would like to say I did find a natural shampoo and conditioner (under ten bucks each)that includes both tea tree and lavender oil in it. The brand name is Desert Essence. It was located in the health food section of a regular grocery store. I will try using these to see if they do the trick. So far after the first try I feel better. Wish me luck. I hope this will prove to work as well as save money and trips to the Doctor.
[WARNING!] Dear Earth Clinic, I just wanted to let you know that I think on Ted's Posts it should say in bold at the beginning, or where it can't be missed to read the recipes carefully. I had a small bald spot on my head, found this website, and read some things Ted wrote. I read something about hydrogen peroxide and acv for scalp problems and hair loss. It did not say how much to use in the blurb I read. I thought I would try it. Well I just made a solution up and put it on my head. Left it on overnight. Well, Now I am loosing all my hair!!! So this was not a remedy in the little problem I had, instead, it is causing all my hair to fall out. I would like to spare future readers from this, so please put a warning, and make sure people read Ted's postings very carefully, and if they do not see a recipe, have them contact Ted before just making one up themselves. I know most people would be more careful, but there are us haphazard people out here you know. Thank you.
