  1. Would like to update everyone since I am the original poster of this thread. I had to stop inositol as it seemed to be messing with my hormones unfortunately. But I had a bunch of lab work done and it turns out I had a few nutritional deficiencies. One of the really low ones was zinc. I read studies that zinc sulfate was pretty good so I began supplementing started with 50 mg day for 3 weeks then dropped it to the RDA of 15 mg a day. Hair loss stopped and has remained stopped for quite some tim
  2. To update everyone, FMT did not cure the condition. And in fact, it took me a few years to figure out that probiotics were also worsening my skin.
  3. Hello all, I have struggled with this condition for 3 years now and consider myself an expert. I have made many gains and will post below. Firstly, to the original poster, stop using all oils, including the neem oil. Something about tea tree oil helps BUT it must be washed off within a few minutes of being applied, or the oil residue left on your skin will cause further breakouts. As well, fluconazole did nothing for me. The best antifungal drugs for this condition is itraconazole or ketoconaz
  4. Guys, I've lowered my dose of inositol even more to see what would happen. I only take 2 caps a day (total 1300 mg) in the morning and hair is still not falling out! I'm seeing less obvious scalp gaps so maybe growth is starting to happen. Because I'm a girl, it's easier for my to just part my hair a certain way and hide the bad spots. To confirm, my hair loss was mainly in the front/top and above temples. Similar to male pattern baldness. Anyway, if you try the Inositol, have patience. It doe
  5. Well I really don't know for sure if it lowers testosterone in men. I was just stating that as a possibility. I'm a woman so I have not looked into this. But I know many men take high doses to treat OCD and anxiety with no bad effects so I guess it's just best to follow up with your doctor to be sure. As for how inositol at high doses was messing with my hormones, I was getting my period at random times and I also noticed a few pimples near my mouth. This is an area I do not normally have b
  6. I did post a photo. Did it not show up? Anyway, I've had to lower the dose of inositol to 3-4 grams a day because it was messing with my hormones. If you're a man, be careful as high doses can possibly lower your testosterone. Now that I've lowered the dose I notice one or two strands coming out every few hours. But Nothing alarming.
  7. Here's a visual for all of you. I'm attaching a photo of CB how much hair I was losing in the shower before starting inositol and then after starting. As you can see there is a huge difference. I brush my hair in the shower so it's normal for me to lose some hair but the hair loss I was getting before starting inositol was TOO MUCH! Also, I was previously losing like 80 hairs everytime I styled my hair with a flat iron. Now, I may lose 7 hairs. A huge improvement.
  8. Mike, have you noticed a stop to your hair loss too? Inositol has been a lifesaver for me. I've recently introduced collagen as well to see if it speeds up the hair growth.
  9. Hair still not falling out. Yay for inositol! I've decided to stop the B5 and just take the inositol. So far it's too early for me to notice any hair growth but can say that may hair is definitely not falling out anymore. I take a higher dose now though to try to speed up the process. 2 capsules (650 mg each) 6 times per day. I tried lowering the dose about a week ago, to see if only 3 capsules a day would still work but the shedding started up again. As soon as I upped the dose like before, hai

  11. I posted this on another thread but decided to start a new topic so that more people see this. I started B5 about 3 months ago and was taking about 20 grams (20,000 mg) daily to clear up my acne. I took this amount for about 3 weeks when I started to notice the shedding. It wasn't massive but enough to concern me. So I stopped the B5. My acne began to return but I maintained it with vitamin A. The hair shedding slowed but did not stop completely. A few weeks later I suffered a huge break
  12. Yes, I have found the cure. I started B5 about 3 months ago and was taking about 20 grams (20,000 mg) daily to clear up my acne.

My acne began to return but I maintained it with vitamin A. The hair shedding slowed but did not stop completely. A few weeks later I suffered a huge breakout of acne on my face so I panicked and began taking the B5 again but
  13. Hi all, just wanted to let everybody know that I've started a website about curing pityrosporum folliculitis. It's called effmypf.com.
  14. I'm on week 3 of the diet. I fell off the wagon for a couple days because the diet is HARD! But I got back on it and basically mainly eating eggs and veggies for breakfast, lunch I sometimes eat 3 or 4 chicken tacos with cabbage and avocados (with corn tortillas). Then for dinner I eat a chicken salad from Chipotle (they use grass-fed meats without antibiotics). The salad just has avocados and lettuce Yes, this diet is so boring but I'm determined to get my skin back. Some days I eat quinoa or
  15. After a round of antibiotics killed off the good bacteria in my body, I developed malassezia folliculitis aka pityrosporum folliculitis. My once perfect skin turned red and inflamed with a ton of acne bumps all over my forehead. I've tried every topical. They don't work. I spent thousands of hours online and could find nobody who he cured this condition for good. That is until I found this girl's blog: http://www.healthextremist.com/candida-yeast-causes-acne-personal-experience/ This girl
