Re: Tea tree oil toxic reaction/candida symptoms

I'm so sorry that this happened to you. And yes, tea tree oil allergies are very common. Here is an article by the Mayo clinic:

I had a similar reaction to a soap with tea tree oil in it. Several days after I began using it, I developed an eczema-type rash on my hands. At first I didn't know what was causing the rash, however, because I was trying so many remedies to get rid of candida. Unwittingly, I continued using the soap, and the rash continued to get worse. My hands became very itchy and the eczema began to "weep." After researching tea tree oil, I was finally able to make the connection. (By the way, if you are allergic to tea tree oil, you may also be allergic to other tree-based topical antifungals such as grapefruit seed extract and coconut oil. Allergies to the natural cures for candida is one reason I've never been able to use these alternative medicine options some discuss here.)

If it's any consolation, I'm totally free of the eczema now, although it took months for the eczema to clear and heal. Time was the only thing I found that helped, because trauma to the skin takes a long time to heal and repair. A year is a long time, but it sounds like your injury was very severe. So long as you keep showing progress, you will hopefully continue to heal. In the meantime, there is a forum here for eczema (which is similar to contact dermatitis) that you might want to check out. You can find it by typing "eczema" in the Curezone search engine. I found a lot of good hints there such as the importance of using a good moisturizer on the area to protect it. (The one I like is L'Occitane 100 percent pure shea butter. Another poster in that forum likes The Body Shop - Aloe Caring Body Balm for sensitive skin.) Also, try not to scratch your skin because it only re-injures the area and scratching will set you back. Keep your finger nails as short as possible to help prevent injury from skin scratching, too. Here is more on the importance of not scratching:

Benadryl, in either cream or pill form, helps to stop the itching, especially if taken or applied before going to bed. You might also want to try a cortisone cream.

Good luck!
