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
