I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for asking so many questions and giving so many answers and solutions to a common problem.
My friend has just returned from overseas with a severe case - I am talking approximately 40% of his body (everywhere) - covered in these lesions.
He is addiment that he wants to consult his doctor and dermatologist first and try their methods, but from what I have read here that is just going to be a waste of time. I have taken notes on all that you have said and given him some of the books to Tomt's readings.
Thank you all for shedding light on a subject that I had no idea about and that will help my friend immensely!! As someone that has no faith in doctors, I research everything I can on natural therepies first and then if I can't find what information I need, I then ask someone else to help me with a natural remedy.
The information that has been provided here has made more sense than no less than one hundred other sites that I have read.
