The List

These are the things i used to try to treat the rash:

Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera juice
Baby powder with cornstarch (not talc, to which i'm allergic)
Baking soda
Bentonite clay
French clay
Hydrocortisone cream (helped with the itching)
Hydrocortisone ointment (did not work at all)
Mankua honey (from New Zealand +15 Active)
Organic diaper rash cream with zinc
Silver ointment
Silver solution
Stinging nettle tea & tea bags
Tea tree oil
Vitamin D oil
Witch hazel
Young Living essential oil (i don't remember the name of the blend, maybe Endoflex)
Young Living essential oil Purification

I also was taking some detox stuff orally from the acupuncture doc.

Now that i know the type of rash, i could have tried a couple of others such as oil of oregano, or olive leaf oil, coconut oil, Pau d'arco bark, garlic, yogurt, or lemon grass.

But, at the end of today it no longer hurts to wash with water. It looked like the redness was fading, but i wasn't entirely sure because both the cream & powder are white. But after washing tonight it does seem that the redness is fading. And i haven't had pain or itching today.

I need to start taking a probiotic again. And, probably in October, i'll begin a candida diet. It always seems that i need one in August, but i just don't think that is fair for that is when fresh peaches are in season & peaches are my favorite fruit. The candida cleanse/diet limits - eliminates - fruit for the first few weeks.

Anyway, i'm thankful that after weeks of trying to handle this, it is finally (after MD intervention) going away.

(This darn new blogger editing program is putting in spaces & extra lines where i did not put them!)

You know what is really good for any type of rash is Calamine Lotion. But I'm glad you're feeling better!
