I have had a rash under my arms and in my groin that has come and gone for years. went to a dermatologist a couple years ago who was sure it was a candida infection, so we treated for that and it did eventually get better, but would still return. I had a surgery recently and was taking salt baths for the wound and noticed that my rash was getting better. then the season changed, and I was outside sweating a lot, and the rash returned.

I treated with the ketoconazole cream the derm had given me, and it wasn't getting better, so I switched to 50/50 raw apple cider vinegar/water in a spray bottle, followed by extra virgin coconut oil, topically.

Within about two weeks, the stubborn rash is about 90% better on my legs, and under arm, but not much improvement on groin, and the eczema on my hands is worse (possibly stress related last two weeks, as that had almost cleared up prior). I went to derm today to get checked again and derm says that I don't have candida anymore, that I have psoriasis, on elbows, groin/penis, under arm, and prescribed elidel. I'll pick a spot and see if that helps, to confirm diagnosis, but will continue with apple cider vinegar to see if that indeed is a natural cure. I dropped the coconut oil several days ago to focus on the Apple Cider Vinegar and see if that is, alone, what was working. I am not cured yet, so this post is a little premature, but I have seen such positive results from the Apple Cider Vinegar (2-3 times a day), part of the time with coconut oil, that it may be worth a try.

I started having a rash and as it turns out it's psoriasis. Last week I started a combination of of both cider vinegar and coconut oil orally, per the site's recommendation. Well, there's a lot of different remedies there but upon reading them all these seemed likely to work.

Today I woke up to significantly clearer skin! I've heard that sunlight works too. (It's winter! ) Additionally, I applied the oil topically. Just wanted to give a shout of thanks! This condition is so gross It shut me down to the hopes of meeting someone to date. Of course more women have been flirting with me lately. Something about not being available...... ? What's the holistic approach to the opposite sex?
