Ringworm on Cheek Spreading

Posted by Anonymous on 10/13/2007

Thank you very much for your respond. I am now using one of your remedy, the glycerin and borax. I started it yesterday. I will continue to do so for about 3-4 days to see how it goes. If it doesn't work I'll try the hydrogen peroxide. I have four more questions for you. 1. If all fail, (I hope not) I want to take an antibiotic. Which do you suggest? 2. Is the anti algae and borax method is too harsh for the face? 3. You said for male 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in at least 1/2 glass of water but I'm a female, so how much baking soda and how much water should I use? 4. My face itch so bad at times and woke me up a couple of times at night. What is good for anti-itch?

1. If all fail, ( I hope not) I want to take an antibiotic. Which do you suggest ?

A borax and glyerine solution maybe too weak. A 20 mule team borax for local applications would be more appropriate. I would much prefer to combine the borax saturated in hydrogen peroxide up to 3% before going to antibiotics. At least from my side, this has worked without failure, although the 3% is quite strong for most people that is done, if previous weaker solution were not successful. I have no successes at all with the use of conventional antibiotic, as they are "anti-bacteria" and not antifungal medicines. Anti-fungal medicines for me none of them worked and those I know have no positive feedback. As a result I can't recommend them, although I might try other solutions such as 1 teaspoon of citric acid in 1% hydrogen peroxide solution, or carbamide peroxide (found in tooth whitening preparations) that are quite antifungal in itself.

2. Is the anti algae and borax method is too harsh for the face?

Borax has a surfactant properly much like soaps. The problem for me is the so called commercial soaps currently under use are to harsh for the skin. For example a liquid soap, which contains SLS or SLES (sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate) is used in skin transdermal vaccination as the SLS destroys the top skin cell allowing the vaccinations to penetrate to the skin faster. That's the problem I have with commercial soap preparations. They also destroy the skin cells. In a research study, they found the regular use of SLS, alters normal skin cell growth, which I interpret to mean, abnormal skin cell growth. As you can see this is a long story, but I will leave it simply that borax is a mild soap preparation so mild that both borax and boric acid ARE USED AS AN EYE WASH COMPOUND, sold in drugs stores today. Just check it out!

3. You said for male 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in at least 1/2 glass of water but I'm a female, so how much baking soda and how much water should I use?

A female are smaller in frame generally speaking, so 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, but an exception exists where if the build is larger, or the condition is severe, or requires somewhat immediate attention. In that case a 1/2 teaspooon can also be used in that instances. The reason for the low dose, is usually to avoid the laxative effect, which is why it is taken on an empty stomach, or at least 30 minutes or more before eating or 30 minutes or more after eating.

4. My face itch so bad at times and woke me up a couple of times at night. What is good for anti-itch?

A simple anti-itch medicine is found in your kitchen. It is called distilled vinegar. Apply it a couple of times it usually goes away. If not, a simple bottle of well shaken milk of magnesia, will do it as it causes the skin to dry out starving the fungus of moisture. It does take several minutes (about 30 minutes) to notice.

There actually is two medications (actually many more) other I used that kills fungus rather effectively, although I bet you
will have trouble locating them. One is ammonium chloride mixed with some water and applied to the skin. It helps too. A more effective ammonium carbonate solutions work too, however sadly it is difficult to locate that.
