I've had ugly folliculitis on my buttocks for 3 years. Had no idea how it started, but I guess I've had Candida Overgrowth for the same time. I've had all kinds of candida symptoms the last year.
I started the candida diet two months ago. At the same time, I started to apply apple cider vinegar (organic, with mother) on my buttocks morning and evening. At other times a day I applied virgin coconut oil. In the beginning I didn't feel any difference, sometimes it got better, but then it just returned. But I kept applying the stuff.
Now, two months later, even though I stopped the diet after 6 weeks, the folliculitis is TOTALLY gone. I am SO happy.
I keep applying cooonut oil, but stopped the ACV.
It's amazing that I've had it for years with NO change - It looked HORRIBLE, and it disappears in two months.
Keep on doing what you are doing!! I hope this will help others with the same embarrassing problem.
