I did it for 4 weeks. Just green veggies and organic meats. I splurged and had a gluten free organic pizza, some organic pumpkin, and gluten free, no GMO rice chips. wrong move!. those %^&$#ers came back in spots that were receding in 1 day. I was looking pretty clear.
So, I am back on the boring diet (no sugar, no salt (himalayan sea salt is OK), no fruit sugar (except lime or lemons), no starchy vegetables that turn into sugar and using selsun blue washes, topical peroxide splashes and vitamin e (topical).
What was your 1st experience with these?
I got about 100+ pustules over a 3 day period all over the upper trunk, face and scalp of body and we thought it was adult chickenpox. So, I applied vitamin e and aloe vera daily and it went away in a few months. Anyone else get something close to that effect?
As of now 9 months later, it is just clusters below the mouth (around 5 or 6 tiny raised white pustules) and unhideable larger red spots (again 5 or 6 some with white heads) on my neck (these are fugly)
Uusing selsun blue (helps but don't leave on > 15 to 30 min or skin will discolor)
sing sulfur soap by grisi from CVS (it dries out the skin a lot)
Using tea tree oil soap,, (leave on to dry; it helped somewhat while on the diet)
using hydrogen peroxide splashes (helps somewhat with the small ones as they reduce in diameter)
100% EVCO - oral (not sure how the caprylic acid helps besides make me go to bathroom hours later)
vitamin e (topically off and on; this seems to help but it takes time)
My culture was negative according to the head derm but he believes I have bacterial (or staph) folliculitis. So sugar (even fruit and vegetable sugar) and breads can make it worse. Perfect. Now my typical healthy diet is over and I am on a highly restricted diet. This is not living not to mention all the stares I get at my neck while in the grocery line.
