I USE (PEARS) GLYCERIN SOAP, CLORINE BATHS(1/2 CUP IN BATH WATER FOR 10-15 MINUTES/ONCE WEEKLY), ANY BABY PRODUCTS(NO HARSH CHEMICALS)
I HARDLY USE MY STEROID CREAM - DON'T WANT TO BE DEPENDENT ON IT. I WOULD SAY VISIT A GOOD DOCTOR AT LEAST ONCE. READ UP ON IT, VISIT SITES LIKE THIS AND TALK TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT AND NETWORK WITH OTHERS. TALKING ABOUT IT MIGHT HELP US TO CURE IT. I USE OLIVE OIL, CASTOR OIL, COCONUT
OIL FOR MOISTURIZING MY SKIN. I HAVE NOT TRIED ACV BUT I WILL TRY IT NOW.
I'm hoping Ted can answer this one or someone who knows about this auto-immune skin disease. My father who is 81 was diagnosed with this condition. He as been on the pharma protocol which cleared it up but now it has returned and we don't want to put him back on the prednisone as it makes him very agitated. Are there any natural remedies to knock this thing out of his system?
Thanks for your help!
Hi, Sarasam; Yesterday, I was looking at some photographs of people with hyperpigmentation from a B12 deficiency. The discolorations were in areas all about their bodies, even the soles of their feet, palms of their hands, and their tongues. Those are the few places that I have not had hyperpigmentation. For many years, I have believed it to be caused by other conditions that I have, but I now am finally beginning to see evidence that B12 supplementation is improving this condition. ( I have alot of nerve damage that B12 is repairing).
Hyperpigmentation is also called melasma, and the terms are distinguished by the diagnosis of the supposed cause. I have searched up remedies for conditions that include skin discolorations, and many include B12 in the protocol. Hypopigmentation, often diagnosed as autoimmune vitiligo, is also treated with B12, Folate, vitamin C, and moderate sun exposure. I recommend a sublingual lozenge of methycobalamin, (active B12), slowly and completely disolved in the mouth. It can be moved around up under the lip so as not to cause irritation. I also recommend a low dose B-complex for skin conditions. It can be divided and taken as smaller amounts 2x or 3x daily if there is irritation. ( I take a food based complex which has low amounts, and I even cut those tablets in half and take them 4-6 times daily. ) The cases of hyperpigmentation that I read about were quickly resolved, 2mnths. I'm in my 5th mnth. and only beginning to see results. That's OK. I take 2500 mcgs. - 500mcgs. daily, but other people may need less if they do not have neurological symptoms. 500 -1000 mcgs. may be fine.
The description of your symptoms, especially the dermatitis and the ring around the neck, is almost a textbook cascade of symptoms for PELLAGRA, a niacin, vitamin B3 deficiency. Try buying niacin and taking it in conjunction with a good co-enzymated B-complex. Google pellagra, there will be sites with pictures and better descriptions of the condition. Best wishes.
I would like to know is there anything that someone has done to have even skin tone? Area that are black: under arm, butt, knee, feet, behind knee, bikini area, ear, mouth, under eye, nose, neck, and elbow. And then everywhere else discoloration color is light brown to brown. When I was little you could say that I had fair dark brown skin tone but this all change when I hit the age of 10. Breast became to grow, pubic hair came with acne. And no I am not fat. I have a good figure that most women want. Long leg, full lip, nice eye, and nice hourglass shape. I am not saying this to make myself feel good this is what many men and women have told me. It too hard to look in the mirrow anymore. I have try all the product that people has told me to use and none of them has work but made skin worse, you see I have sensitive skin. I am hoping to someone here may have to answer to my question. I have done: lemon juice, baking soda, exfoliate, bleach, peel and honey which has not help. And yes I know there a post on here titled "Hyperpigmentation Remedies" by Ana from Singapore and the main ingredients turmeric make skin yellow. Like I said I have dark brown skin. Will come back with picture if I can. So if there any body out there please help!
Hi, I have a different problem, white spots on my skin. So far I haven't found anything to even the skin tone. Lemon juice is supposed to help but it hasn't worked for me! Good luck...
Have you considered it may be Tinea Versicolor? I've had it before and treated it with Selsun Blue.
I've been using Virgin Coconut Oil lately.. Not long ago.. Before starting Virgin Coconut Oil my face has patches of rash which subsided but the build up of dead skin cells were too much! It is because I stop using cleansers a month ago I use only water and moisturise with vco.. Guys can anyone help me?? am I going through the purging state? where all my toxins are purging out?? does Virgin Coconut Oil actually removes dead skin cells?
I am not sure of where to post this, if at all, because it seems that most people panic at the mention of Lye/NaOH. but I always keep a bottle containing 30cc H2O mixed with 5cc NaOH (volume of granular Lye beads).
Dabbing this solution on any closed skin condition is almost sure to kill/fix it in 1 day without injury, including pimples/boils/etc, possibly warts or other skin growths/conditions, rough skin and infected follicles on elbows/knees, etc, merely by dabbing a bit on a Q-Tip, and rubbing it in for 5-10 seconds, and then leaving it to dry. I have also eliminated varicose veins and little scars by allowing the solution to soak on a wet paper towel cut to the size of the area required, but this will result in blistering and very slight scarring which will take a few weeks to heal. it is certainly not something to use on large areas, but is excellent on areas 1cm or less. I find it important to share because it works on almost any condition without failure (I have never seen it fail on any closed skin condition), and works when nothing else in the world works (conditions where 50 other remedies were tried).
There is several modes of possible action: a) it dramatically changes the pH of the tissue environment, which healthy body cells can more easily deal with than other types of cells, b) it turns oils/fats into soap, which may critically interfere with the function of infective agents, c) it creates protein hydroxyls and many other chemistries that greatly disturb the environment of many pathogenic conditions, leaving the body free to clean-up and re-create a healthy environment.
It would be dangerous if put into an eye or used internally, and I would not use it on an open wound. And it is important to wash hands after using it.

Infared, 125 Watt Clear Lightbulb
To respond to the woman with the terrible boils. I suffer from horrific cystic acne. I discovered that if I eliminate all forms of hidden MSG [do an internet search to find all that it is in] that my skin is perfectly clear. I am so sensitive that I cannot even touch anything with citric acid or natural flavor which is a form of hidden MSG and is in most shampoos, liquid hand soap, prepared foods, pop etc. I convinced my husband to eliminate all hidden MSG and his headaches, ezcema and skin rash went away. Now when he has any exposure the itchy, weepy skin rash comes back and today it is back with a vengence.He had mustard on Sunday and it flared. By Monday evening it was drying up and he licked the spoon of the ice cream he served our children and during the night it erupted so bad he could hardly sleep.
A good rememdy for all these skin things is a 125 watt clear infrared bulb. Not only will this clear up the skin but is great for any aches and it healed my son of acute asthma. Asthma requires a one hour treatment 1-2 times daily or more. The more you use it the quicker it heals. The only draw back is having to stay stationary so long. My husband hasn't had time to sit under it the past two days so he is still in bad shape. He started on the vinegar and honey last night to see if a change in body pH will help.
