I've had 'jock itch' now for around 20 years. It comes and goes and is always worse in the summer. I've tried all the creams and sprays and all they do is suppress it and control it. I ordered some food grade H202 on line, 35% and just dabbed it on with a cotton ball and it immediately turned white and started to burn, I let it burn for about 20 seconds then jumped in the shower and rinsed it off. I did this again at night.The next day I diluted it by half and applied it again for as long as I could stand it, no longer then a minute. As I did this I noticed that the fungus was spread around a larger area then I ever imagined. I had small areas that went from my inner leg all the way up above my pubic hair. Anyway after about 10 days the insidious fungus was eradicated and hasn't come back! Thank you Earth Clinic. I am now huffing H202 a few times a day and I gargle with it twice a day and notice my teeth are getting whiter and cleaner. Who knew?

I've used hydrogen peroxide, 3% pharmacy grade cut 50% with water, to rinse my mouth before brushing, which has been a great help with eliminating bad breath and plaque. But here's a remedy that no one may have thought - a treatment for "tinea cruris" commonly known as jock itch. I had an issue with this for several months and during this period, several times a week, I used Curex and other over-the-counter options to eliminate it, spending $20.00 to $30.00 to no avail. I knew hydrogen peroxide was effective in killing bacteria, so, as a last resort, I cut the pharmacy 3% grade 50%, just like the mouth wash, and used it-in 2 days!!! the itch and soreness was gone! No joke. Total cost 20 cents!

Hi, my name's Bob, and I live in southern California. I've had a "keratosis" problem for many years, and they seem to be multiplying. My strong desire to rid myself of these extremely gross-looking "critters" prompted me to do some extensive online research to find "natural" ways of removing them, instead of having them surgically scraped off, or freezing them with liquid nitrogen ( I've had that done several times), etc. After reading many articles that suggest leaving them alone - because they usually aren't cancerous, I decided to try using 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) to rid myself of the beasts. Treatment with H2O2 is highly controversial, and it may not be for you, and to add insult to injury, most health insurance companies won't pay for their removal - if your only reason for wanting them removed is for cosmetic reasons. Since many other people are looking for a cure, I decided to share my experiences to create a web page that includes life-size photos of me, taken after each day of treatment, and the results I have experienced so far. If this site's moderators will allow the inclusion of my website address, you can view my results at: bob2000.net/keratosis/keratosis.html

I just made a donation to TED in thanks for the first night in months when I can actually BREATHE freely. I have devoured the information on your site for two days and finally took the PLUNGE and put hydrogen peroxide and distilled sterile water into my nebulizer instead of ALBUTEROL! Some will call me misguided, perhaps, but I am sitting here with tears in my eyes--since I am NOT struggling to breathe. I simply cannot believe this, but my lungs are the proof. My husband even said I had pink cheeks for the first time in months. I am THRILLED I found this site and TED. There are no words...

To help clear the lungs of mucus and infections. 50/50 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TO WATER , MIX IN ONE OF THOSE NEW TYPE ULTRA SONIC COOL MIST HUMIDIFIERS . I KEEP IT SET UP ALL THE TIME ON THE KITCHEN TABLE . I TAKE A FEW PULLS IN THE MORNING TO CLEAR THE LUNGS FOR THE DAY. ALSO PULL THE MIST THROUGH THE NASAL PASSAGES, BUT IT CANT BE TO STRONG OF H2O2 ,OTHERWISE IT COULD BURN A LITTLE. ALSO THE PHARMASUITICAL GRADE MAY BE BETTER FOR YOU ; BUT I JUST USE THE DRUG STORE KIND. I BREATH BETTER THAN I HAVE IN 20 YEARS, NO MORE NASAL INFECTIONS. IF YOU USE THE HIGH GRADE STUFF BE SURE TO DILUTE IT DOWN TO 3% AND THEN 50/50 WITH WATER, OTHERWISE YOU COULD HURT YOURSELF.

I got an H202 treatment at a clinic in Scottsdale and was shocked how it helped clear up my lungs. I was sick for a week but took it all in stride as I knew it was because the H202 was clearing out my lungs and other toxins in my body. I am a firm believer in H202 therapy and I looked at it like this...It can't hurt me...I might as well try it. And am glad I did. PJ

I had a question in regards to the Hydrogen Peroxide treatment. I have tried it with great benefit, I stand behind it. My wife was diagnosed with Lupus, she has seen what it has done for me, but is worried about using it, because she is on medication and would like to know if it can react negatively with the prescription drugs.
I would love to be in contact with Bill Munroe.

I started with melanoma in 2005 on my face. Had extensive surgery but they could not get it all. In March 2007 it had spread to my chest behind my heart. Had another extensive surgery to remove it. In August 2007 found out it had spread to my face/neck/and chest. Doctor told me that they couldn't operate. Did some internet research and read about hydrogen peroxide and how it puts oxygen back into your cells. Rejuvenating them. Well, decided to try it. I either take a 1/2 bottle and soak my feet in it with warm water or take a whole bottle and take a bath in it. Well, last petscan in November there were no new growths and the ones from August were less intense. My LDH also has dropped to an all time low of 113!! Is it the peroxide, can't say for sure but I won't stop it. Will try to keep you posted on my progress. What an easy cure this would be. Better than dying from metastisized malignant melanoma. Good Luck!! I am not a doctor just a normal person trying to help myself. I also started wearing magnetic jewelry. Who knows!!!

I tried the Hydrogen Peroxide for Melasma: I've done 5 treatments, 20 minutes on the affected areas and it has substancially faded. I have it quite bad on forehead, cheek area, upper lip. I have also done the glycolic peels, Tri-Luma cream, etc. with no results. I am amazed this is working, and trying to determine if I can continue this to control the melasma.

I add about 1/4 teaspoon of 3% H2O2 to a carton of milk when I first open it. Since we slowly go through milk, it helps stop the milk from souring. If I still have the same carton in the fridge in two weeks, I will add a bit more. I have had milk last a month in the fridge without going sour!

This remedy works great! I had been fighting mold and mildew in the shower for years. I had mold developing on my shower ceiling and I would normally use bleach in a spray bottle and had to wait for it to dry. I mixed 50/50 of peroxide and water, sprayed the ceiling, waited 10 minuted and it wiped right off with a sponge. I'm telling you this really works. I have never seen the shower so clean!

I wish that you had a thread about molecular hydrogen.
EC: Here it is!
Once the thread gets more information on it, we can start a new page... For now it's a topic on our Hydrogen Peroxide page.

Does anyone know often it is safe to use (drugstore) hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash? How much should it be diluted with water? I've been using it about 75% H2O2 with 25% water, about 5 times a week, but afraid to use it more often in case it erodes the enamel. Thanks for any help.
