I have been using essential oils and herbs for years to cure all types of ailments. This one is worth sharing with everyone looking up the topic of a natural cure for sebaceous cysts or lipomas. I see that some have successfully used castor oil but that it hasn't worked for others. I have successfully eliminated three different individuals cysts using undiluted essential oils. *PLEASE BE AWARE THAT USING UNDILUTED OILS MAY CAUSE IRRITATION* I will detail two different oil blends.
The first oil blend is called Purification. It is made by Young Living Essential Oils. It contains the following:
Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), Melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia) lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida), and myrtle (Myrtus communis).
The first individual I used this on had a cyst about twice the size of a pencil eraser on her neck. I put several drops of it on twice a day covered loosely by a band-aid. By day three the cyst she had been bothered by for over a year came to a head, expelled it's contents with gentle squeezing, and was all but gone after another week.
The second individual had a cyst under a mole over his eyebrow. It had been getting larger over about 7 months and began to interfere with his vision. At the start it was very hard and about the size of a pea. I applied the Purification oil two, sometimes three times a day for three or four days. On the fourth day it came to a head and I was able to express much of its contents. It did seem stubborn and I had to continue to express the waxy like substance for about two weeks after it came to a head.
The third individual had a cyst on his neck that grew over the period of a year to the size of a small bouncy ball and it started to get sore and hurt when he turned his head, not to mention the unappealing cosmetic aspect. For this cyst I didn't have Purification on hand so I started with a base of peppermint oil applied directly, then clove, rosemary, and tea tree oils. It only matters that you apply the peppermint first. This combination did cause a bit of irritation, but not enough to stop using them. I did eliminate the clove oil after the third application. I applied the oils twice a day, the first after a morning shower while skin is moist and pores are open(peppermint helps transport the herbs into the skin) the second before bedtime. By day two the individual noticed a strange smell and we discovered the cyst had opened up. I was able to express almost a teaspoon of waxy, foul smelling substance. I cleaned the site with peroxide and applied peppermint and the tree oil to the skin, NOT DIRECTLY ON THE OPENING, and then I put some more tea tree oil on a bandaid and covered it. I advised the individual it would need to be expressed repeatedly and cleaned with those oils. So far success again. I hope this helps someone!
I have to agree that purification is amazing for pimples, skin abrasions, etc. I also used theives today on my dog that had a cyst forming on her neck. It was red and irritated already so I know it was ready to come--but just wouldn't. I sprayed it with thieves and alcohol mixture, along with a few drops of direct lavendar and within about two hours it was to a head. It's not all out YET--but we're making headway!
You may as well try your local pet pharmacy. (Or farm pharmacy) Talk to the pharmacist and see if he or she will do it for you. I don't think iver is Rx only for pets.
It worked immediately -- that is, it cleared up a lot of stuff over night. Then I used it again 3 nights later and more cleared up. Now it's just clearing on its own. I'll use more in another couple of nights. I am being very conservative. But it is making visible changes.
As long as you're pretty sure it's demodex this will work. Not all rosacea is demodex, but a lot of it is.
leggybrandi, if the acne is from mites (and it often is -- mites locally feasting on oils in your hair follicles) then for sure the ivermectin will work. It won't take long to find out. You'll know in a few weeks or a month. Just apply a regular amount (like you would with an expensive moisturizer -- just enough, don't over do)every other NIGHT. Don't use other creams at night, either, just this.
Also, abandon sugars and grains from your diet. This feeds the bugs. Do it for a month with the ivermectin.
So is the ivermectin a paste? I looked it up and can only find it at 1.87% for horses only. Can I ask which brand you're using? I've also never heard of using this for people before, are you sure it's safe?
Hi! The ivermectin is a thickish liquid (it's sold as injectable for farm animals) and you use it topically. Look on line, amazon has a few places resourced. Get the dark brown box with the steer head on it.
If you know someone at a pet pharmacy (or any pharmacy that makes drugs for animals) you can ask for a cream to be made up: neutral cream and ivermectin powder (which they have; it's quite common).
Hi all, I have suffered for 35 years with acne, and now rosacea/acne. Every treatment known to mankind, you name it I've been on it for 35 painfilled years. I am caucasian, northern euro descent. So after yet another, probably 100th time of searching the internet, having suffered another excruciating breakout ( I would estimate close to 100 newly erupted pustules/edema swollen bumps) in just one week from what was totally clear skin (comes and goes now), at age 51, I may have found what works for me.
1) I am very convinced my malaise is demodex mites see the rosacea / acne before and after at this site. 3 weeks ago I looked totally normal, hiding in my home for the past 10 days, downing benedryl and icing my face because I suddenly once again look like the before pics:
The main tip that brought me to the conclusion was reading about how demodex mites come out and mate at night. Countless nights (and dermatology visits explaing this odd phenomena) of itching, feeling like my skin is crawling, and the hour by hour increasing swelling bumps and irritation, only at night, from 5 pm on. Then I wake the next morning to a new crop of pustules.
2) so in reading about all the products that kill the mites, I read metronidazole was a key ingredient. I realized I had some "fish zole forte" tablets in my cupboard. I crushed one up in water and rubbed it all over my face. INSTANT RELIEF. I MEAN INSTANT RELIEF. From bright puffy, oozing, throbbing red sores to normal color skin. I am a picker so there are a lot of scabbing open red marks, but they have all INSTANTLY turned from red to pink and in just a couple hours appear to be starting the healing up phase. We all wish for a miracle cure...this just might be it. Unbelievable.
I will also be taking 1 500 mg pill a day as my research indicates this is also a treatment.
Damn Dermatologist. 8 F*ing rounds of accutane in my lifetime. 2500 mg of Tetracycline 25 years ago. Every topical known to mankind. Thousands upon thousands and a lifetime of humilation and makeup trying to hide it.
Please respond if you find this cheaper at another website.
Hopeful again, for the countless time. Could something so simple change all this? 35 years my life has revolved around this terrible condition. I can't believe this might be all that is needed. I read they reproduce every 12 - 14 hours, so I will try applying this water/metronidazole paste twice a day and see what happens. I am grateful for the relief I am feeling at this moment.
Who knows, perhaps I will actually be able to go out of my house next week. I am a people person, so this disease has completely sucked the life out of me. It is amazing that I am married and have 3 kids and hold a steady job, but every day is a day of embarrassment that effects not only me but my family as well. I often wonder what I might have been, what I might have accomplished if it weren't for these damn mites.
I will send an update next week.
good luck and god bless all of you battling acne or acne

1:51:55 - Geroge – Lung Cancer Case. George from Scotland.
This morning I squeezed juice from one large grapefruit, and I got more than a half of a large glass of fresh juice. I added one half glass of Organic Extra-Virgin Olive-Oil to the same glass, and after short blending with a spoon, I drank it all.
It is still in my stomach. A bit heavier than eating a usual breakfast.
In the morning, stomach is empty, so it is very easy to drink this kind of juice. Both Grapefruit and olives are fruits, so it is just like drinking a fruit juice. So simple.
It tastes delicious, if you enjoy the slightly bitter and sweet and acid taste of grapefruit. I could hardly taste any olive oil as there was almost double as much grapefruit as oil, and the taste of grapefruit is far more strong than the taste of oil.
I am not going to eat anything until afternoon.
Energy I get from a half glass of oil is more than enough to keep me from being hungry during the day.
I may even visit a gym later today.
This is the most simple way to do a liver flush, all you need is one large grapefruit and some oil. Grapefruit juice can be substituted with any other freshly pressed juice, like orange, lemon, pomelo, lime, apple, pomegranate, etc.
You can do it with just a few spoons of oil and a few spoons of juice but in that case you can drink it every morning. That is a more gradual cleaning, where you take some oil and juice every day.
If you can not get olive oil where you live, you can use any other kind of oil. Check this list for oils that are beneficial for your blood type: http://www.curezone.org/ER4YT/oils.asp
Of all oils on the list, olive oil is the only one listed as beneficial for all 4 major blood types.
Last time I have done a Liver Flush was maybe 3-4 months ago. I try to do at least 3 -4 flushes per year, to keep my liver healthy. Please, do not expect immediate results. Yes, some people may have had immediate results after 1-2 liver flushes, but those people are an extreme exception to the rule.
The rule is, it may take at least 6 months of liver flushing to achieve a significant health benefit.
And, it usually means doing at least 2 flushes per month, or a total of 12 flushes per 6 months.
Here are a few stories related to liver flushing.
This man, medical doctor and a board certified psychiatrist experienced significant health improvements after one year of liver flushing: http://www.curezone.org/forums/fm.asp?i=784900#i
Why is this experience interesting? Because his improvement did not come immediately after liver flushing.
There was absolutely no health improvement immediately.
Instead, liver flushing slowly improved liver condition and health inside his intestines, improved his intestinal flora, and as a result, his body health improved.
My personal experience with liver flushing was similar. No sudden change in health. Instead, slow and steady improvement of health and improvement of my food tolerance, to the point where I could actually eat and tolerate all natural foods. Prior to liver flushing, I was intolerant of all meats, eggs, all milk products, all foods with Sugar added. I still avoid junk foods, but I can at least tolerate all natural foods like milk, meat, eggs, fruits, dried fruits, nuts.
When someone can come back to curezone 1 year or 5 years or 10 years later and confirm that his lips are healthy, those stories have 100 times more value than stories by people who just appear here for one week, and never come back to report progress or any other changes. Many times we have read success stories posted, just to get a new message 6 months later telling is EC is back.
Those stories illustrate how liver flushing can help improve liver function and help improve digestion and intestinal flora.
Once you improve liver function, digestion and intestinal flora, most of the chronic health problems you are suffering from will slowly disappear, slowly, one by one.
The last health problem that will disappear is the first health problem you got or the one you have had for very long time.
Why do I suggest liver flushing?
Cause of all home remedies and therapies that you can do to help yourself, this one is the most simple, and in the same time the most powerful.
Yes, it takes some time to squeeze juice from one grapefruit, it takes some time to blend oil and juice, it takes some time and effort to swallow one full glass of juice compared to an effort it takes to swallow an antibiotic pill or to use chapstick on your lips, and no, do not expect miracle results within the first 60 or 180 days but as time goes by results will come and you will become a happy person.
I believe in homeopathic remedies and that they have the potential to work.
The only issue I have is not knowing what I'm trying to remedy.
It's difficult because I'm going through various diagnostic tests at the moment and I don't want to jinx any of them via the use of drugs or supplements. If I pay for a test I want to make sure it fully represents my 'normal' functioning as best it can.
High ATL & Triglycerides readings on a recent blood test of mine may point towards a fatty liver.
Thanks for posting the info, I've bookmarked this.
Olive oil and grapefruit juice can hardly be classified as drugs or as supplements.
It is just food.
Plain fruit juice.
Fruit of olive and fruit of grapefruits.
Nothing else added to it.
Call it a larger portion of salad dressing, and it will sound more like a food, less like medicine or a supplement.
Yes, there are many Liver Flush recipes out there that ask for more than just olive oil and juice, but unless you are suffering from gallstone attacks, or from some serious disease like cancer or AIDS, drinking just plain fresh fruit juice and Extra-Virgin Olive-Oil will do as much good as an other much more complicated Liver Flush recipe ...
So, no need for supplements or other remedies ... just start drinking oil.
Take just 2 spoons of oil with some juice every morning and it will give you some health benefit after a few weeks or months.
I've read the other part to cleansing your liver is coffee enema (diluted coffee) or it goes hand and hand with the Liver Flush to activate parasympathetic actions (I think since I don't have notes in front of me) in the intestines. What do you think about this?
Half a glass of grapefruit juice and half a glass of olive oil? How many oz would you say that is? That sounds like 4 oz of each so a regular Liver Flush dose. Do you drink this potion regularly or just every now and then? I think you are right about Epsom Salts not being necessary outside of gallbladder attacks. Although they certainly have their place. Thank you for compiling these testimonials.
I did the olive oil and lemon liver gallbladder flush and i passed zero stool zero stones and am very disappointed, so i am going to do the 6 month morning olive oil grapefruit approach. I did do flush to improve my digestive issues and eye sight and such, and feel gutted it did not work one inch. being a health nut anyways, it was a slap in face.
Please be aware that it can typically take many flushes before stones come out. What you will most likely see on the first couple of flushes is chaff, sand, or sludge. This has been my experience as well as several others on th forum.
By flushing old stagnant bile from your liver and your gallbladder, and possibly flushing out some gallbladder sludge and gallbladder sand, that is how you are changing both your liver, your gallbladder and also on the long run (few months) also your intestines and your intestinal flora.
It is when you change your liver, your gallbladder and in the end they change your intestines and your intestinal flora that you can really expect symptoms to start disappearing slowly one by one.
STONES ARE NOT IMPORTANT!
Do not count stones!
Do not collect stones!
Only if you have diagnosed gallstones, it can be smart to check the stones to see if there are some hard ones.
Even if you have diagnosed gallstones, you can expect some of them to pass out and some of them to stay inside,
but the real health benefit will happen when you change your liver and your intestinal flora and your diet.
If you have no Gallstones symptoms, stones are the last thing you should be thinking about.
Most of those stones people are passing are just hardened bile, often hardened inside intestines during the flush itself.
That is why fixation on stones on this and on many other forums is a wrong fixation .
Just keep flushing your liver, at least one flush every month, and enjoy the health benefits some months later.
''The health of the individual – for example, if a person has gluten induced liver or kidney disease (a common manifestation of gluten induced damage) the purging process would most likely take longer.''
There is a long list of herbs and drinks that help cleanse kidneys.
For example, if you start drinking freshly pressed vegetable and fruit juices daily, like watermelon, cantaloupe, carrot, celery, red beat, cabbage, apple, pineapple, orange, etc, it will naturally cleanse your kidneys.
Drinking enough water and making sure salt in your diet is unrefined ocean salt also helps cleanse kidneys.
Consuming beans and drinking water from cooked beans also helps cleanse kidneys.
Other way to cleanse kidneys is to drink herbal teas daily.
Tea made from crushed seeds of watermelon, celery, or tea made from corn silk, and from many many other kidney herbs also helps cleanse kidneys.
Just google "Kidney Herbs" and you will find 100 herbs that aid kidneys.
Some of them will be growing naturally in your local forest, like burning nestle.
So, there are many ways to keep kidneys working well, some of those ways are more like food, others are more like teas ... but drinking plenty of liquids is always a part of cleanse.
So cleansing kidneys is something you do every day.
Liver flush is usually something you will try to do 2 times per month.
Some people prefer gradual cleanse instead of flush, you can gradually cleanse liver by taking daily a few spoons of olive oil with a few spoons of grapefruit or lemon or lime or orange or pomelo juice.
Flush is called when you take more juice, like 1/2 cup, and in that case you usually make a break of 10-14 days between flushes.
Gradual cleanse is when you take less , and you do it day after day.
On curezone there are many different recipes for liver flush, read them to see which one sounds most interesting for you.
One recipe, I remember, even involves drinking Coca Cola because Coca Cola contains phosphoric acid and it aids digestion of juice.
The most simple recipe I gave at the beginning of this thread is the easiest to try, as it has only 2 ingredients.
More complicated recipes involve even taking enemas or colonics both before and after the flush, but you do what you can and what is available where you live.
Enemas or colonics may be important for some people with serious health problems, because it helps prevent re-absorption of bile dumped from the liver.
Our digestive tract naturally tries to re-absorb one part of bile that was dumped into intestines.
During the liver flush, most people prefer not to re-absorb bile.
I've done, and am now doing again, a "gentle" liver cleanse called Livatrex from Global Healing Center. I've been scared to try the olive oil/espom salt cleanse so I decided I start slow with the gentler cleanse. The livatrex cleanse is just a drink you drink for 4 days. I did find it helpful, but I know the real liver cleanse will do even more for me, but again, I'm just scared. I did write a post about my back pain recently and someone on here said that it's related to the kidneys and gallbladder, is this something I need to address first or can I jump right into the liver cleanse?
Also, I'm 100lbs, does that affect how much oil etc.. I need to use?
I'm by no means a doctor or medical professional. I have been hostage to a constant red face since the age of 13. I never knew why or understood the reasons my face was constantly red. At a young age my doctor told me I had rosacea and that it's heriditary. I accepted the diagnosis and went on with my life. Just recently I heard of a new rosacea product called SOOLNTRA that has 1% Ivermectin. That really got my gears turning. I did my research for hours online, reading blogs and forums. I discovered Rosacea, Acne and possibly scalp psoriasis are all caused by demodex mites! I figured if I could get ivermectin and try it for myself I have nothing to lose. Not having health insurance I went on Amazoon, found ivermectin paste for $2.99 I read the reviews. Humans have used it for scabies although it's made for horses. I was a bit skeptical and hesitant at first but went ahead and tried it. It's been two weeks and my face and scalp have never looked better and felt better!! I hope this easy cure will help millions escape our failing expensive healthcare system and demodex mites that ruin our lives.
Thank you So much for sharing your success w/ ivermectin, Justin. I'll be ordering that paste on Amazon the second I send this msg. and pray that it delivers the final punch I need to clear up this train wreck of a face.
After billions of research hours I recently figured out that my 12 years of nightmarish, life-changing pain & misery have been caused not JUST by bacteria & fungus, but by these wretched demodex mites that LIVE in my skin and create the bacteria & fungus !~ this is just SO Gross!!
Like many of you who've had this for a couple of years, these horrible creatures have damaged my life is so many ways, I'm praying that I can fix some of it when I get the demodex under control (I've read that we can Control them but can never kill them all.)
[Skip the rest of this 'essay' and go to my next post I'm going to send if you don't want to read any more of people's personal experiences being tortured by demodex mites; I'm going to send some info from an Acne Forum about some excellent treatment ideas for bacteria & fungus that might work well for you: They DO make the mites come out of your pores & follicles in droves but either they don't have quite enough kill power to Control the darned things or maybe I'm just not consistent or patient enough because I work very very long hours @ a State College.]
["My Mite Story" ]I'm sharing this so those of you who've suffered emotional, social and career damage due to this disfiguring condition, will know that you haven't been alone on this painful road.
~Even tho' I now know they have a name, I know that everybody has them on their face, and I've looked at these monsters under a 10x magnifying glass, it still seems surreal, like a bad dream, that hundreds, maybe thousands of them have been multiplying in MY skin all these years, turning my once clear & lovely skin into layers of hard, thickened itchy skin full of painful sticky white plugs & throbbing pimple-like bumps.
I feel like I've been in some bad horror movie for 12 whole years watching myself become ever more depressed, hopeless, pitted, scarred & isolated from spending hundreds of hours alone in my bathroom tearing my face up just to stop the throbbing, distracting pain in those big ugly bumps.
It's been hard not to cry all these years when I saw my reflection each morning w/ all the sores and red bumps on my face; It's made me dread going to work each day knowing I have to meet w/ college students up close, looking like I got mugged.
I've gone from being a social, fun-loving, happy, optimistic & confident woman in her 40's to someone who doesn't even want to leave the house anymore - takes too long to patch my face up and too embarrassing even when I do a 'good' job of it.
Most painful, has been trying to help friends, family & co-workers understand why it takes me hours to get ready to go somewhere or why I don't even Want to go out w/ anyone, anywhere...my face hurts and burns & will look awful in minutes even tho' I spent 2 hours covering it up. It's just been heartbreaking trying to explain my increasing isolation and despair because I couldn't even explain to Me what was happening to me..Until there were Forums like this one and the Acne Forum where other victims of this weird disfiguring infestation started sharing their stories, research, treatment successes & failures.
I owe every bit of new found hope to every one of you who has so generously shared your stories & wisdom.
So...Fast forward to several months ago when I googled "Sticky white plugs on my face" and found stories, information and ideas on a couple blogs & on ACNE forum, for products to try to beat these monsters...I was overjoyed! First time in years I had some hope that I wouldn't have to be a reclusive slave to my face forever.
~Almost all info & recommendations however, were for killing bacteria & the fungus left behind when the mites die and their bodies become mush (your skin reacts to all that crap which is why it forms many hard &thick layers); Not much mention of products to kill Demodex because, like me, lots of folks reserching ACNE don't realize that the bacteria & fungus and pimples may ALL be caused by demodex.
~I DID see improvement using all the suggestions for killing bacteria & fungus, but was HORRIFIED to see truckloads of those white, rice like mites coming out of my pores this weekend due to a rigorous care routine that takes too much time to do on workdays, and Knew I HAD to look for a way to Kill the Mites too.
I'm going to order the ivermectin and pray that it kills mites. I'll write that post w/ useful treatments as soon as I can.
I wish you blessings and clear skin, Barbara
Here is a tip for those who are ordering ivermectin from Amazon. Many products (targeted toward horses) say 'apple flavor'. This type is a sticky jelly and messy to use topically. However, the Horse Health brand is a white paste. It comes in a big plunger and is 1.87% so you need to cut it about in half with a lotion or cream of your choice. It is quite inexpensive and they ship fast.
So shocked! It never occurred to me that rosacea was caused by a parasite. I've been taking Ivermectin for years. My mind was focused on killing the parasites. When I read your post I went immediately to the mirror. The rosacea I have had for 20 years and just accepted is gone. I never noticed and had no clue it was caused by parasites.
Hello. I am glad to hear the ivermectin cream helped you. Often times though, an overgrowth of demodex mites points to some other problem that is allowing them to overpopulate and this is the cause of the problem. If you are fortunate and your problem is still resolved - great for you. If not, you may want to investigate further.
Demodex mites in the proper population are actually part of a balanced scalp. They ingest excess sebum in the hair follicle and keep things tidy in your scalp. They do not defecate so do not leave waste in the follicle. However, an overgrowth can cause a reaction as can a predisposition you may have to be sensitive to them. If this problem has not been resolved please do get it investigated further. I don't want to alarm you but sometimes other things like tumors of the pituitary can result in "red face" and although highly unlikely it is something you would want to be ruled out. Hope your problem is resolved and I wish you the best. Kind regards.
Hey folks, I've been battling parasites for a year. I might have gotten them from a trip to the tropics in 2014 (i did have pretty bad food poisoning but then it mysteriously disappeared) but then suddenly had an onset of insane fever+constipation+fatigue+worms and eggs in stool in 2015 that doctors wrongly diagnosed as Stomach flu. I am only 22 years old and it has been taking a toll on me mentally and physically. Here are the list of symptoms I have:
-worm-looking floaters in my eye and tiny dot floaters sometimes transparent or a little darker
-My bones often crack and I feel "pulsating" or twiching in muscles all around my body and abdominal area
-during ovulation, intense itching in groin and anal area + bleeding. rashes. (might be pinworms)
-increasing acne on face and back
-things that look like roundworms, ropeworms, Tapeworm eggs, rice-looking segments, flukes, black specks,tiny white hair like worms
-sneezing/blowing nose during cleanses
-almost always itchy scalp,nose,face, ears
-severe fatigue, weakness
-randomly get hiccups
-brain fog, nervousness, depression, anxiety
Things get way worse during the full moon. Sometimes I can barely get out of bed and need plenty of caffeine to get going. I've tried easier to get natural/alternative products but the creatures keep on coming back. decided to try Humaworm. I'm still waiting for it in the mail. What are some tips you have?
You may have disseminated worms. Mattk3 Document 255 states, "Pharmaceutical medications are best treatment for disseminated worms. Herbs only work on gastrointestinal worms." Mattk3 protocol, "Start on Praziquantel 25mg/kg (minimum dose) every day, divided into 4 doses, 6 hours apart (ie 9am, 3pm, 9pm & 3am), for minimum 7 days up to 30 - 60 days +
Praziquantel 25mg/kg/day (divided into 4 doses) should be taken in combination with Albendazole 200mg - 400mg/day, divided into 2 doses (ie 3pm and 3 am).
I am on day 21 of Praziquantel 50mg/kg/day in combination with Albendazole 200mg-400mg/day. For me, the anti-parasitic medications started working on day 15. Things are beginning to calm down in my body. I plan to dose for 40 days minimum.
I had no idea worms could penetrate intact skin! Nematode larvae entered intact skin on my lower left calf. I went to five different doctors. All 5 doctors wasted my time. Doctor number 5 just kept repeating, "I disagree with you...I disagree with you...I disagree with you..." Now, "I disagree with you" is like echo in my head.
Doctors make people continue suffering with parasites. Lets hope the NHS is replaced by private companies. I have used piperazine. You can buy it sold for dogs and rabbits etc. Also I have had half a pineapple per day.
What kind of parasites? I have little worms coming out of my skin and they are all around my house they look like hair and or threads and I noticed black dot things with the hair attached like legs or something.. Can u help me figure this out and or what to do to get rid of these little f***tards??
Are you asking me? I don't know how to buy drugs apart from those sold for dogs etc. You need to be careful about what you buy. If the worms eat blood then I would try piperazine. From my experience it will be slow. I have been avoiding too much meat and trying to eat pineapple and some currie.
Hi. Your story hits home.
To the best of my knowledge, I have skin parasites. I itch and get open sores, cuts and scratches in my skin. It sounds like you have skin issues as well. Your feet itch, right? What led you to believe that internal parasites are the cause of your feet itching? Please educate me on what nematodes do. I am trying to figure out if I am a candidate for prazi, pyrantel pamoate, or both. I am currently taking fenben and applying small amounts of ivermectin and antifungals topically to affected skin.
Were you able to preserve the worm that you found on your calf/lower leg?
Hope you are still getting better.
Humaworm works, I'm a 23 year old female and my body is INFESTED with blood flukes, liver flukes, tapes and roundworms.. I see heaps coming out.. especially liver flukes, Liver Flushes and enemas are necessary too IMO
Are you a member of the humaworm group on facebook?
I did pharma drugs too but ended up with high liver enzymes.. I should have lowered the dose, but I believe the kill rate was too fast I had to take a break, I felt hungover 24/7 for a whole month afterwards... ythought I had ended up with some weird side effect, I was horrified. If I were you I would start with herbs.. and then maybe try the Hulda Clark mop up program after 3 rounds of herbs, just my advide :)
I should say first I am no longer doing any anti parasite treatments at this time. Im back to using benzoyl peroxide medication, as well as topical Colloidal Silver sprayed on my skin to help with the discomfort.
Ive noticed heavily infected places, where I had been applying the zz cream, after the infection starts to die down, in each of these places I noticed black things the size of pepper or maybe a little bigger, RISING up out of my skin. First I notice them deeply imbedded, then they slowly rise and eventually surface. They look like a splinter coming out of my skin and they hurt. When I rub over my skin I could feel them in there. They are VISIBLE. And NOT blackheads or anything, they are moving THROUGH my skin.
This never happened before using anti-bug creams. Also, the black things appear only after an area has been very infected. I get these huge bright red painful cluster infections, and I had continually been bombing them with the anti mite cream. When the infection started to die down was when I would notice the black things in the skin.
I also have noticed small, flesh colored needle like things in my skin. They remain after a cyst has mostly healed. Its like the skin is still clogged with something hard even after the infection has gone down. Its small, and spiny, and a little bigger than the black things. And it hurts. If I rub my finger over the area, it feels like a needle stabbing me because it moves the spine within my skin. They are difficult to remove if even possible. I had one red mark and I picked the spine out with a sterile needle. It finally came out and the red mark was GONE by the next day. But the red marks that still have the little spines in them remain and dont fade.
Someone suggested I might possibly have Morgellons, which scares the hell out of me. :( But Ive never noticed anything that exactly fits those symptoms, in fact I have no IDEA what the hell this is, because demodex mites and scabies are supposed to be non visible, and whatever this is I keep seeing dark things, very visible, big enough to be noticed through a few layers of skin.
When I have a job again Im planning on trying another internal humaworm cleanse as well as using humaworms new topical anti parasite cream. Im just very wary though, because nothing Ive used has helped me.
zz cream= definately seems to kill bugs, but is the harshest stuff Ive ever used, and killed my face in the process.
benzoyl peroxide= has some medicinal effects and I can acheive some clearing from it, but its far from a good solution. Has side effects. Drying, irritation, ages my skin. Thats definately better than going out looking like a leper, but its no solution.
other topicals provide minimal relief at best. Im taking a break from cleansing right now to give my body some time to build/heal/ and rest...I definately plan to get back into liver flushing, herbs, and parasite cleansing in a few months. Ive done a LOT this past year and while its helped my body SOOOO much, my face is as ravaged as ever. This is combination with seeing these black things make me feel its something ON my face.
So. What the heck is this? What are these black things? Im just soo...not defeated but overwhelmed. I feel Im suffering from something there are no answers for..I want there to be answers. I pray one of you guys has an idea of whats going on here.
Maybe it's just lead or something, heavy metal related. I used to see little stuff like that in my skin before I chelated. Little shards of black stuff coming out through the pores now and then. Haven't seen any since chelating real good. I did a few months IV chelation EDTA/DMPS. I eat lots of cilantro and garlic otherwise.
I had all sorts of weird spots clear up on my skin after chelation. Greyish spots near my ankles/shins especially.
I have also been doing parasite cleanses but it seems that type of stuff mainly went away with chelation for my high lead, cadmium, and mercury.
You might consider food grade diatomaceous earth to clean from the inside out, good for overall cleansing daily, eat it. And Black-Walnut hull tincture.
I'd drop the chemicals asap they will destroy your skin, dry it out and make it unable to function proper... takes years to recover from. the problem is usually inside, not on the surface of your face. If you want acne and pimples to go away it's real important to keep your sking soft, not dry it out especially with chemicals.
Try mixing 1/3 apple cider vinegar (unfiltered organic), 1/3 100 proof vodka grain alcohol, and 1/3 distilled water for a good strong yet gentle balancing rinse you can use every day. And don't use commercial soaps, they can contain mercury and other stuff. Try a tea tree oil soap or something similar from your health food store.
You have scabies. I know because I have scabies and I am going through this RIGHT NOW. I googled "scabies coming out of my skin" and found your post.
I've had doctors tell me they don't know what I have, but there is a group of us who all have them. I slathered myself in neem oil tonight after a bath in neem leaves and then they started coming out. Feels like needles. At first there were many red ones. I've always been able to capture the little clear grains of sand, but tonight for the first time there are black things emerging everywhere I am infected - and some places I didn't think I was. Some are black specs, and some are thorn like black strings. I feel like a thousand needles are poking and stinging me.
So my advice - if you are still going through this - is get a coup[e of litres of neem oil from New Directions Aromatics (dot) com and bathe, scrub yourself and apply the neem. Get yourself a stiff drink. After an hour of this I had to. I don't know how long I can stay up going through this, but if I lie down I'll wipe some of the neem off and I want to get rid of these!!
I've been battling for a month. I used so much essential oil and dead Sea Salt that my skin became papery.I have ivermectin on order from India! But this neem is cheap and seems to be working, however horrifying the experience is. Apparently neem disrupts the hormone of the scabies and stops them from reproducing. I certainly hope so.
I am experiencing the same thing doctors gave me two rounds of permetherin ...and didnt work after a day or so. I used d earth and grapeseed oil...black and red things are coming out of everywhere! I have class in 3 hours I am exhausted do I go to bed and cover with vaseline? Are these things dead? Do I wipe them off or shower them off? Any advice would be much appreciated. I am soo behind on schoolwork the last two weeks have been utter hell. My doctors dont even believe that the two rounds of permetherin didnt work..Im glad I did this...I think? Well if it actually gets rid of them
My advice is to keep doing it. I'm on day 3 of covering myself with neem and there are less needles coming out. It doesn't hurt like crazy. Get some neem oil from NewDirectionsAromatics dot com or wherever and coat yourself as often as possible. Don't forget between the toes and behind the ears! I plan to do this 1 week past the last thing that comes out!
thank you for this post and info just got some neem oil about to do first application after 2 rounds of permethrin cream, coconut oil soaks on my scalp and hair with a shower cap cover for 1 hour (that works =will continue)
acv on skin which gets them to the surface before washing all over with 3percent salycilic soap/shampoo(taking 3 showers a day lately you know the drill!!!)
I also have these splinter things , i thought they were to do with hairspray or any spray because that's when i used to get them ! I've just started with them again , I usually leave them alone but this time they are worse and have had a feeling of not feeling well , so thinking its time to do something about them !! Any help will be greatly appreciated and if I find anything out will also let you know !
First let me tell you that I am no stranger to this horrific malady. I sympathize with you and all who are afflicted with this crazy-making THING. Whatever it is, I know it is real. I know for a fact that we are not nuts. Well, maybe some of us are nuts, but BEING NUTS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS VERY REAL DISFIGURING AWFUL SKIN "THING". It has seemed to go into some kind of remission, only to return! I believe I've had some luck with 'keeping it at bay' with that Nutra silver one takes orally and keeping skin exfoliated, especially dry brushing helps as well as daily shower using a scrubbie and also lye soap which is kind to one's skin. I don't think it is wise to treat your skin too harshly, as in exposing skin to very harsh chemicals that seem to damage the skin. I know we just want this weird stuff to leave our skin and bodies forever. Recently I got impetigo from cleaning out a very very dirty pool and was given Bactrim. I can't prove it, but it seemed to me that as long as I was on the Bactrim the 'weird skin thing' got better, to the point of gone. Stopped Bactrim...it came back...But perhaps I didn't take enough for long enough. Has anyone heard of taking Bactrim and it helping?? God bless us all.
I've been itch the last ten years and have noticed Brown bit on bedding and floors that when pricked separates into many tiny bits then six month ago I put on moisturizing bar and then on top of that a soft soap from lush. I sat on wallpaper as these things came out of my skin they were like splinters. I had visable holes they hurt n the bigger bores took days it was really sore and it felt and appeared these things moved to the surface only when smothered I had to rub sideways to get out. I couldn't do my head and I've noticed tiny pin head things got my camera n zoomed in on theses thing and found stick like things with a yellow blob. Attached. Looked up morgellans and found similar pictures not worked out how to attach pictures yet but will do ifiI feel itching I put the moistufixing bar on it then the old orange soap can't remember name and I find things. It's worse at night
So I started taking Iodine (Lugol's 2%) in water a few days ago. I'm up to 4 drops. *I take the co-supplements too. I'm also on the Global Healing Center parasite cleanse. I've been on the parasite cleanse for about two weeks now.
Before starting the Iodine, the parasite cleanse had stirred up some bad acne, caused my ovarian cyst to throb with pain, back aches mostly in upper right section, make me feel feel "sick", etc.. I figured this was part of the process or "healing" so I did not stop the cleanse. During all this happening, I then introduced Iodine. Even though I'm at a low dose, the Iodine seemed to take away the cyst pain, make me feel less "sick", and help a good amount with the back pain. I was happy about all this, but the acne was still there and bad. I read a few times on here about others painting their face and other body parts so I deciding, why not, let's give this a try. I painted my face with very diluted iodine that morning. I saw a slight difference that night. The same night, I painted my face again but with pure iodine, no dilution. The following morning my face looked a lot better. Did this again last night, and wow, again it helped. I have no discomfort when I put it on my face by the way.
I'm wondering, is this (painting my face) safe to do every day? Also, is it okay to do as I increase my oral dose?
I read on here about someone painting their face and their skin peeling off, that for of freaked me out. So far, my face has shown no signs of peeling, discoloration, or irritation.
Is it okay to paint my face with the Lugol's 2% every night?? I don't dilute it with anything, it's straight Lugol's 2%. By now I've been doing this for over a week, taking some nights off here and there, but there has been no discomfort, no peeling, nothing but good results. I'm curious what you all think. Also want to know, even though it's showing improvement with my skin, if in the long run it is bad
I guess I'd like to introduce myself and get some advice if I can.
I'm a 27 year old female with adult cystic acne. I get new breakouts nearly every day. I eat clean. Consume less than 50 grams of Sugar a day.
I don't do dairy.
I've been breaking out since 13. I've been afraid to try accutane because I have panic disorder--but the antibiotics make me sick. I have stomach pains all the time.
I feel like I've tried a million and one things and have come to the end of the road. I'm depressed and slightly suicidal at times. It sucks because I'm a pretty girl with a lot of ambition and talent but acne completely takes away my self confidence.
I don't know what else to do. I feel I'm giving up.
I know what you mean with the cystic acne, I had a lot of it from boob-time and on up (puberty).
Rest assured the anxiety disorder and stomach pains are related to eachother!
It's never the case that just one symptom is unrelated to another, so if you treat one, you will likely affect the other, sure as the sun shines.
I'm glad you have a good handle on the Sugar intake.
Are you living in a country that allows Genetically-Modified-Organisms crops in the food supply? You may want to halt the intake of all foods which have those problems attached. Materials such as Roundup (glycophosphate) acts like antibiotic in the gut and can give a lot of problems.
Many folk experience relief from acne by removing dairy from their diet, because of the bovine growth hormone added to cattle feed so they will grow faster.
The simplest tools you can currently try (and be assured many different folk will advise you to use their favorite tools, because there are many different techniques) which I have tried and enjoy consistent result on:
Drinking clay is one way to calm the gut, the emotions (because of the stress from when there's an imbalanced gut flora (candidiasis) and/or parasites), and possibly the cystic acne. Bentonite, like diatomaceous earth and activated charcoal, helps the body by adsorbing ROS (reactive oxadative species) particles before they can get into the bloodstream, and creating an environment where harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites cannot thrive.
The psyllium husk is a source of resistant fiber, which helps keep the bowels moving and nourishes helpful bacteria.
I never heard of that I will definitely have to look into it. I've been on several rounds of antibiotics--dioxyclycline was the only thing that helped my skin but I can't take it anymore. Very frustrating.
I do also think they're linked. I was bulimia for a long time and know I messed up my stomach. (If it's not one thing it's the other huh?)
And I live on the US--there are gmos in the air we breathe! Lol literally in everything. For some reason a lot of things make me sick to eat. Spinach nut butter and fish lately in particular...
I use CBC on my acne sometimes o feel like it makes it worse? Or brings it to surface? Can't tell. I use Aztec healing clay. Do you just ingest it?
Yes! I've been doing the P&B shakes on and off for several years. :-)
I'm sorry about the bulemia- it's hard to find self-worth as a teen in advertisement and competition land. I didn't find many friends in the highschools while growing up, so had the low self-esteem too.
I have found self esteem- of all places, in chasing an answered prayer. My dad chose christianity back in college, and I grew to distrust it as a young kid and in my teen years, and ended up with a boyfriend that /really/ screwed me over.
The prayer was for a loving mate who shared my father's faith, similar to my dad, just not as annoying.
It was answered!
The rest of the story is just as long as my life is long so far, LOL.
I grew up in the states, so I get where you're coming from. :o
I live in Europe now, but not all the countries here are GMO-free, either.
GMO is generally corn and grains meant to be dried before they're harvested. Fruit and veg, organic eggs and meat, etc, are generally safe foods.
I don't know what CBC is, so I can't say~
One can expect the state of the skin to reflect the state of the stomach, but when it comes to antibiotics, I'd stick to oregano essential oil! It wipes out ALL the baddies, including in the lymph and blood when the concentration is high enough.
However, lavender essential oil is much less likely to induce herx (dieoff/sickness reactions), and is nicely antiviral. Is pretty good in coconut oil.
Emotionally, the mental self-image you have for yourself, and the words you speak have an end effect on how well you'll digest and feel for the day. What can I say? I've had to revise a lot of the crap I learned to believe about my self-worth and this body when young. I don't worry so much about the outward looks.. but I have a hard time still stopping my hands if I spot a zit around my period. They always come then. ;)
Wheatgrass juice might be a handy thing to grab for your daily dozen (o f fruit and veg), got any good juicebars or wholefoods markets around your town?
i have fordyce spots for 5 years now, i started to have them after taking an antidepressant called DEROXAT, it made my lips very dry, i used a lip balm and i saw those spots appearing on my lips, don't know if it's from the pills or the lip balm...
AND i have a BIG question for this forum, is there anyone who got rid (for real) of those fordyce spots ??
i mean, don't say any crappy cream or else, nothing works, if there is a solution, it's from inside our body maybe changing something about our diet, taking foods supplements or i don't know... but really nothing else can work, even CO2 laser doesn't work, and smoothbeam laser too (i tried smoothbeam already at the corner of my lip, i've got one scar but the fordyce came back)
to be honest i'm started to loose hope but, is there anyone who cured this for real ?
i can try to take a picture, but not sure if the quality will be enough.
you don't know what fordyce spots looks like ? it's like small little white dots on the upper lip, doctor says that it's normal and lots of people have it but i don't think so, no one know what is it and i don't think that many people have that thing, i've never seen it on anyone except on internet.
it is not something normal, it was not on my lip before, i have got normal lip for 25 years, so when doctors tell me it's normal because they don't know what to do to help me, it makes me angry.
not many people have this that's why no one is searching for a solution, they would not get many money with us, we are a minority, they prefere to fix the face of old rich women with wrinkles...
I've been having recurring discomfort in my abdominal region, particularly on my right side, and I'm not sure why exactly. A few weeks ago I experienced a sudden shooting pain that lasted for all but a second. Since then, I have not experienced any kind of pain. I would describe the feeling as more of a tingling, sometimes pulsating sensation or a type of discomfort, maybe borderline pain. It's more disconcerting than anything given my symptoms and medical history.
If it is gallbladder related I want to be extremely proactive in doing anything I can to keep my gallbladder (both my mother and aunt had their gallbladders removed). For the past ten years or so I have been dealing with cystic acne, dry skin, dry eyes, IBS, ingestion, brain fog, fatigue, etc. Foolishly, I took antibiotics for years back when I was in college to try and deal with my acne. I was on Doxycycline, Bactrim, and Solodyn, not including any other antibiotics I would take whenever I had a cold, which was often.
Right now I'm working with a function medicine practitioner and am scheduled to have an ultra sound done of my abdomen soon. I'm also going to do a SIBO breath test. I had a stool test done (the Genova 2200) and unsurprisingly it revealed that I have low bacterial diversity with some common species being absent altogether. My pancreatic enzymes were also somewhat low for someone of my age (28, M).
If there are gallbladder issues at play, what can I do? Would it be wise to look into immediately performing a liver and gallbladder cleanse? I've never done those before and have honestly always been a little afraid to since complications can occur. Are there gentler ways to support the liver and gallbladder? What about using choline and vitamin B6? The practitioner I see would also like for me to experiment with ox bile at some point to see if that provides any relief. This would help indicate whether the amount, consistency, and quality of my own bile is sufficient. From my understanding, if bile is thick and not flowing well then that can inhibit pancreatic enzymes from being released into the small intestine. This could help to explain why my pancreatic enzymes levels were low according to a recent stool test.
I'm not having diarrhea, I'm not nauseous or hunched over in pain but I am concerned. I adhere to a pretty strict paleo diet and have been doing so for the past two or so years but I'm at a point where pretty much anything I eat gives me some type of abdominal discomfort and instant gas even when taking digestive enzymes with a meal. Any insight or help is appreciated.
If I suspect that gallbladder issues are at play, which I increasingly do given the strange sense of heaviness and discomfort on the right side of my abdomen, what can I do right now, absent performing a liver and gallbladder flush, to support my gallbladder, promote better bile flow, and help soften any stones that may be present?
Prior to performing any kind of flush, is a colonic absolutely necessary? Is anyone familiar with the Black Box detox protocol from Quicksilver Scientific?
I sprayed CS on my scalp 2 months ago, and the dandruff is still gone. I assume we need to do a touch up once in a while as required. I will know more in a year after I have 12 months experience with it. For now, it is the best thing I have EVER used for my dandruff. For certain, one application lasts for months.
