Re: we cant rule out ec isnt a fungal infection...

I'm sorry, it's tough to take you seriously when you make sweeping generalizations like that with that degree of certainty. I'm fairly confident that if you take the time to look through the site's archives, you'll find people with longer periods of anti-fungal cream usage than I, though doubtfully anymore taking Antibiotics for 6 months to a year. You'll also find many people with biopsies that had no observable pathogens.

And to clarify, after seeing absolutely no improvement with my treatments of 1.5 months with Clotrimazole 2%, and 1 month of Nystatin, I used a variety of natural antifungals for 10 months straight. At the least, they didn't worsen the condition. When I said I didn't believe a fungus was the etiology of my condition, I meant the original cause. I certainly think that we are more susceptible to fungal and bacterial infection without a stratum corneum and with poor immune response. If there is a presence of infection, I think it would be a major barrier to healing.

Many more than 1000 people have this condition who have AIDS (compromised immune systems), and many of those have Candida infections (something like a third of all AIDS sufferers). This is another thing you can't rule out until you get tested. Furthermore, stress is a factor in many hyperkeratinized skin conditions. Stress taxes the immune system. How many people without AIDS on here have been stress-free for 6-12 months? Can't rule it out either, until you find a way to test it.

You said the skin fell almost immediately off and returned almost immediately after you stopped the creams. Did it ever occur to you that the chemical creams might be keratolytic? I.e., not preventing skin growth but causing it to shed immediately and preventing the development of a protective stratum corneum?

Let us know if you discover a strong anti-fungal cream that says it is safe for ingestion and contains no keratolytics or alcohols. Some might be willing to be guinea pigs to test this hypothesis. Some might prefer to stick with natural microbicides that are safe for ingestion, and address other factors as well, including stress, diet and exercise.
