In Topic: Pityrosporum Folliculitis ?

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.

I am using extra virgin coconut oil. so far no big difference. I had some guacomole & onions the other day and that was wrong. I got a flare up. I got rid of it for a month in mid December to January after seeing a chinese herbalist and taking some concocted drink for 10 days morning and night, (plus no fried foods or sugars), & maybe the b/c the weather was cold. I thoughtt I was cured until It came back with a vengeance when I had walnuts in a cake bread 1 month later. The banana bread was not the issue, it had to be the walnuts.

Anyway, I am going back to a full detox. No sugar, no breads, no carbs, no fruits, no gluten, no antibiotics. Certain fruits do become sugar inside of you so I am just doing raw veggies (broccoli, chinese peas, carrots, no potatoes or starches), lentil and vegetable soups, almond milk, extra virgin cocounut oil, teas, garlic, shelled fish b/c it has lots of zinc (shrimp, oysters, crab), oat bran (it is gluten free), green tea capsules, magnesium zinc suppements, and "no meat or protein unless I know it is not fed hormones or antibiotics". Otherwise, you are still taking antibiotics orally. So, no more feeding this p.o.s disease.


This is what I did to get rid of it 98% on my body, (chest, back, a couple on the arm and upper legs) along with some special herbs a chinese herbalist made that I took for 10 days. Now it has crept up on my neck and looks hideous and wants to get on my face but I apply bacitracin on it and it quickly disappears there but the neck is persistent and very noticeable.


Additionally, I am using selsun blue 1%, where can I get the 2.5% yellow?

I will get some more tea tree oil soap. Is this effective if I wash it off whiel showering, or should I leave it on after showering & let it dry?
