•  For infection – Melaleuca, Protective Blend, Oregano (hot, use with caution)

•  Blend with EVCO because of its benefits to the skin

For candida or internal conditions – GX Assist/PB Assist, Detoxification Blend or Lemon with water.

Some ointments suggested by others include:

Ointment 1:

·  1 teaspoon carrier such as Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

·   20 drops Lavender

·  20 drops Geranium

·  20 drops Melaleuca

Ointment 2:

·  1 teaspoon carrier such as Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

·  10 drops Lavender

·  5 drops Helichrysum

·  5 drops Myrrh

·  3 drops Melaleuca (if there is topical infection)

Use the ointments for direct topical application to the affected area.

For larger areas use a bath adding the 6 to 12 drops of the Lavender and the other oils as needed.

Finally, understand that skin condition problem’s root cause is many times an internal infection and the skin irritation is only a manifestation of an internal candida problem.  Therefore, strongly consider using a cleanse like the GX Assist/PB Assist or the Detoxification Blend nutritional cleanse .  Couple this with the Life Long Vitality supplements to balance nutrition.  In some reported cases of prolonged eczema the GX Assist had to be repeated multiple times.

Dermatitis and eczema are general terms for types of inflammation of the skin, whereas psoriasis is a more specific disease that results in similar inflammation. They all produce red, inflamed skin and the terms overlap and are sometimes confused. Medically to distinguish psoriasis from the other conditions will take elaborate testing. Here are some of the general characteristics of each.

Dermatitis is caused either by an irritant or by an allergic reaction to something that comes in contact with the skin. An irritant can come from excessive contact with something like a soap or other cleaning agent, a chemical used in employment or even different types of hair or hygiene products.  An allergic reaction is different in that the contact with the allergen may only be casual and then the rash may appear 24 to 48 hours after contact. Allergens mentioned are things like nickel used in jewelry, dyes, adhesives, medications, preservatives, etc. The primary symptom is red itching skin in the area of contact.

Eczema, a type of dermatitis (most common form is atopic dermatitis) is believed to be the result of a genetic defect although the exact cause is not known. The rash is normally triggered by contact with some form of irritant or allergen. It is more common in infants and young children. The rash is characterized by red itchy skin but is not usually as “flaky” as psoriasis.

Psoriasis typically occurs in adults and is a life long condition. Some suggest it is an autoimmune disease. It is a result of internal conditions in the body rather than from contact with an irritant or allergen although it may be triggered by skin irritations or even weather conditions or emotional or physical stress. Because of imbalance in the body excess skin is produced so the red inflamed skin includes silvery white scales that flake off. These spots may become sore and burning.

With any of these conditions open lesions from cracking and itching can lead to secondary infections complicating the situation.  Finally, understand that skin irritations many times are triggered by toxins being eliminated from the body. So a common candida outbreak internally may well trigger an eczema or a psoriasis condition.
