Would appreciate any insight please.
I have a lot of problems with sinus - headaches - ears - face aches sometimes - brain fog and memory also energy. I am sure I have fungus in my head. have had to take a lot of steroids and anti biotics over years (refuse to take them now). I am desperate for a cure. I feel as though I have no nostrils, can never breath through my nose an often get stuff going down my throat. Yellowy greeny stuff comes out my nose.
I have been reading about oxygen, colloidal silver, biotics, the candida diet (which is so so difficult to stick to and can be very expensive), and just do not know which way to turn. Has anyone here had the same problem and successfully eradicated it?

I had an itchy rash on my armpit which I believe was a fungal infection. I applied ACV on a dampened cotton ball and rubbed it on the affected area. It was about 90% better the next morning! Highly recommend. Give it a try!

ACV vs Fungal Infection
One day while at work I started feeling an itchy sweaty feeling on my abdomen. I looked in a mirror to find a red and inflamed patch of skin. I had never had anything like that. It smelled like belly button wax. I started with some Colloidal Silver on gauze to the area, and later added a few.drops of 3% food grade Hydrogen peroxide and replaced.it against the area for a few more hours - and these easily took care of half of it. I could feel that inflamed patch every minute of that day. Then when I got home I decided to try the ACV, as it is a truly miraculous substance. Within 30 minutes the patch was pink and healing. I put some soothing castor oil on it at that point and that "difficult-to-treat" fungal infection was banished within 12 hrs. Just because "they" can't come up with a cure in a lab somewhere, doesn't mean it's impossible to beat.
Ted here says he read somewhere that fungal infections can lead to cancer. I, too, have read the same thing. I will now alkalize myself with 3 drops of HP in a bottle of water every morning (best on an empty stomach), and then ACV in water later in the day. Forewarned is forearmed, they say, and I plan on doing everything Ted advises to get rid of this thing and he was suggesting the HP. Thanks to Heaven, the stuff is dirt cheap. You could find it at a health food store.
Best of health, everybody!
Apple Cider Vinegar
If you have a fungal problem please try this. Take Apple Cider Vinegar- the one with the Mother intact. You can find it at Whole foods, Vitamin Shoppe, etc around here. Take an empty spray bottle and use the ACV full strength alone or cut it 50/50 with water. When you get in the shower fully saturate your hair beginning at the scalp and leave this on say five minutes while you are doing everything else. What you are encountering I believe is what many of us suffer with, your ph is off. Therefore your body is allowing the fungus to grow. Go ahead and shampoo and condition as usual or believe it or not you can rinse the ACV out completely and it will have cleaned your hair. Do this everyday for the first week and then once every other time until you feel you have it under control. Then never let it get a head of you. Do this as a preventative once this is better. Chances are your diet is producing the imbalance ph wise. Sorry so long but I truly hope this helps you. Best to you!

18 months ago, I contracted what I assumed what was MRSA or an STD from a dionysian splurge. It was on the left labia major and was quite painful. I went to the doctor and pointed it out to her, managing to get it on my hands and then brushing the skin near my right eye. The primary infection eventually went deep under my skin so I was not able to see it, but I could still feel it there. My attention was constantly on the infection near my eye, I was not interested in it spreading and causing blindness. Antibiotic creams and pills were ineffective. Eventually I got it under control with stabilized allicin and a few times I even assumed it was gone completely, although it flared up every now and again.
The primary infection bothered me a great deal as well, and I attempted GSE on it, with limited success. I had the eye area tested for MRSA, but it was negative. It was also negative for being a viral infection and I was at a total loss. The things I used supposingly hit all three, virual, bacterial and fungal, so I assumed I had all bases covered. The doctors continued to insist nothing was there, but I felt it pulling at my eye and down below, constantly aching.
A few weeks ago, my eye was itching a great deal, and I put some vaseline on it. Immediately it spread like crazy, all over my face, down my cheek and began to burn. I began to seriously doubt a bacterial infection is supposed to do that, and a new thought entered my head. Perhaps it was a fungus. It was a long shot, but I researched fungus remedies and took a few baths with ACV and began to regularly apply it and am still doing so. It is a thousand times better now, the ACV seemingly the only thing in 18 months to do anything to this monster. Though the ACV is rough on my skin and I do have to moisturize with olive oil.
As I began to think about the infection being a fungus, it began to make much more sense to me, rather than a bacterial infection. I'm not ruling out a bacterial infection, but a fungus one seems to be more accurate.
Please do not rule out a potential fungus infection when approaching your doctor about possible STD issues or suspicious infections in the nether regions. I believe a dropped condom on a sock or shoe was the cause of mine, and I can finally sense the end of this frustrating journey. It never occured to me, as women do not tend to deal with jock itch or things of that nature.

I spent 100 of dollars on creams to cure a fungal infection I caught at the gym...nothing worked. I read about apple cider vinegar, and let me tell you..it works. The vinegar cleared away the dead skin and exposed the fungus. Now let me tell you it stings like hell!!, But I rather take the pain than to have this infection.
I want you all to know my story. I have had a horrible existence due to bad skin that all my life, was diagnosed as eczema until I was 32. I went to a natural doctor here who prescribed me pau d' aco tablets after diagnosing me with fungus. He said it would take a year, but this tablet would cure me permanently as this fungus has to be killed very, very slowly.
I can't tell you how much I cried when I was told it was fungus, so instead of taking his recommended dose, I thought I'd increase pau d' aco and kill it sooner. I was on it for eight months and my skin went absolutely haywire. I had big sores, deep scratch marks, and the itch was absolutely unbearable, not to mention the deep scabs that I have to pull from my scalp on a daily basis. I got off the tablet.
These scabs are painful to touch but even more painful if I leave them. I have to dig them out and they leave a huge pit there. I have been picking the same ones for over twenty years. I have lost hair and sometimes broken nails trying to dig them out, but once they are removed, my skin feels better. It's either been scabs or holes for me. Then I discovered this site.
I have just had a shower and used Ted's borax, apple cider vinegar and water shampoo, which I tried all over my body with a buff puff sponge, because I got relief from it in my scalp and my skin feels soft, and my body feels at ease. My hair right now feels so beautiful! I rinsed it out with more apple cider vinegar after and it feels soft and shiny! I purchased the borax from Woolworths. I hope there arent any long term affects as we use that stuff to clean in Australia. I am scared of carcinogenics. ( I have even used selleys rmk, a mould cleaner. I don't recommend that. It's crazy I know as I was so desperate to kill this fungus, as it can't even be tested for.)
I had sores on my shoulders and Teds shampoo recipe which I made up, has brought the itch and the redness down. I will give this time and write back to this website to let you all know how I am doing. Thankyou Ted for giving me a great relief to this horrible disease I had to endure for 39 years. God Bless You for this site. Elizabeth P. XxxxxxXx
Hi, I happened to have infection of eye-lid awhile back, took me a lot of trials to find that any creme that has Balsam of Peru as main ingredient takes care of it almost instantly. B. o Peru is made from a tree, and is a great fungicide for a sensitive area like the eye. They caution not to use it continually, as one can develop allergic reactions over long time, but as a short treatment it is unequalled. I've also used it on other areas of my body with rashes that are wet, infected. Dries it up within an hour or so. No irritation. Great.
Hopes this helps someone.
I am using borax mixed in water and spraying it on my hands, it certainly eases the itch. I have fungal infection on my hands, and feet. I will post again if I notice further benefits.
I'm 46 and have suffered with various fungal issues for at least 30 years. Since I was a teenager I remember fighting toenail fungus (which continues to this day). I also had a "polished" circle about 1 inch diameter on my face where the skin was shinier than normal and my beard didn't grow right. The circle on my face was just a birth mark, so we were told. I struggled with recurring athlete's foot through the years as well. Seemingly, I got that to go away a few years ago by soaking my feet in ACV daily for several weeks.
For at least the past 20 years I've struggled with an itchy scalp, initially localized to one area on the side of my head. Over time I developed a swollen lymph node in my neck underneath the itchy area. An ENT doctor ruled out lymphoma and other issues then treated it as a bacterial infection with repeated rounds of different antibiotics over the course of many months. Antibiotics helped with the inflammation and itching, but the problem would return stronger than ever each time I stopped. I was referred to a dermatologist, who again repeated various rounds of antibiotics, but they also didn't resolve anything permanently. She never made any formal diagnosis but prescribed a steroid cream to help with the itching, but told me to limit its use because it would thin the skin, and so I eventually quit using it.
I've tried every sort of dandruff shampoo out there; internal treatments like Lugol's iodine, oregano oil and eating lots of garlic; even many topical treatments including colorless iodine, coconut oil, all types of essential oils including tea tree, oregano and thyme, ACV rinses, etc. About a year back I even tried using borax as a shampoo, which helped some. However nothing provided any lasting relief from the itching or allowed my scalp to heal. The itchy area grew larger and the affected areas became covered with scaly patches (scales as big around as a pencil, not small dandruff flakes). I could wash the scales off with aggressive scrubbing during a shampoo but they would return within 6-8 hours. The area continued to worsen, becoming red and inflamed until I started losing hair.
Not wanting to take any prescription antifungals due to their liver toxicity, I finally decided to give internal borax a try about 6 weeks ago. I initially wet the very tip of my finger, dipped my finger in the borax and then swallowed that (I understand this gives you about 3 mg of boron per finger dip). Within a few days, I noticed a dramatic reduction of the swelling in my lymph node. Itchiness did not reduce--I think it actually got more intense. But it seemed that I was seeing some progress in the appearance of my scalp, although it was very slow.
After 3 weeks of just dipping my finger in the borax I switched to dissolving 1/8 tsp in a quart of water and sipping the quart of water through the day. I saw immediate changes, starting with the skin between my toes cracking open as if I was getting athlete's foot again. Unlike past athlete's foot infections, the skin didn't crack deep enough to bleed, and over the past few weeks the skin simply peeled off and the area is healing without any topical treatments. Thick callouses on the bottom of my feet are also peeling off, revealing healthy skin underneath. The large scales have stopped forming on my scalp, and the skin is slowly changing to a more natural pink color instead of red. Even the circular spot on my face has started to lose its polished appearance and normal beard is starting to grow again. Additionally, the swelling in my lymph node has continued to go down, with it approaching normal size for the first time in probably 15 years.
It is too soon for me to know whether this will also kill the toenail fungus. My scalp still itches more than normal but certainly less than it used to, and all signs point to the borax finally killing this stuff. I'm optimistic that given more time I will finally eliminate these fungi which have plagued me for so many years. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that this is working!!
For my body weight, the recommended Earthclinic protocol calls for me to use 1/4 tsp borax. I found that with the larger dose I experienced headaches and other die off symptoms. When I backed off to the lower 1/8 tsp dose the die off symptoms abated. So I'm taking 1/8 tsp in a quart of water for 5 days followed by two days off. When I'm taking the borax I drink two additional quarts of water to help flush out my system.
About a year ago, after learning how repeated antibiotics can worsen fungal infections, I started drinking about 1/2 cup of homemade milk kefir each day to help replenish the good bacteria/probiotics in my system, which I am continuing as well.

Boric Acid for Ear Fungus
Have had a fungal infection for over 10 years that was given 4-5 different diagnoses. Finally found an ENT who tried boric acid “kills everything” and a week later follow up appointment no more fungus. He gave the name of a tool to use called Sheehy-house Powder Insufflator and it blows the powder into the ear. He did it once and said I can do it once a week as needed and just use regular boric acid!
Use chamomile tea to wash your eyes from time to time, I got an eye infection, and I remember when I was a child, I had eye surgery to corect vision and the doctor recommended at that time to wash my eyes with chamomile tea in between other treatment with medication; in two days the pink eye infection was gone just by using the chamomile tea two- three times a day.
I rubbed coconut oil once daily on the skin fungal infection that had spread from my upper thighs to my neck, back and arms. In under a week I noticed the rash lessen in intensity, by the third week it had completely disappeared. I thoroughly recommend this cure.
I've been fighting a fungal infection of my scalp for two years. I've been to three different doctors and have been misdiagnosed several times, which only caused the fungus to grow more. The pain was unbearable at times. I have a horrendous bald spot now that is only hidden by headbands and headwraps..ugh. I've tried many antibiotics, medicated creams, home remedies and medicated shampoos. Some very exspensive items. But three days ago I discovered coconut oil! Wow. Instant relief. And it stopped the growing instantly....two years of shame, pain and hopelessness and all the money I spent on lots of unnecessary products...... coconut oil saved me.
