tinea versicolor, eczema, and hormones

Posted by His Angel on April 11, 2001 at 17:01:06:

I have had tinea versicolor for about 30 years, off and on, mostly on. In recent years I have been treated once or
twice a year with Nizoral, two tablets, then sweating
hard at the gym with no shower for 24 hours, then two weeks
later repeat. It seems to help, but it always comes back.
I read all the archives on this. What do you think about Nizoral? Can taking two tablets two weeks apart really kill it? (must not, since I keep getting it back)

Also, I have been diagnosed with eczema on my hands years
ago, which comes and goes. It is mostly on my fingers and interestingly, on the palms of my hands, which you say it doesn't occur on. I also have found it to be linked to my hormone level. For instance, when I have been pregnant (3 times) it always goes completely away, and comes back with a vengance a few days after delivery. It seems to flare up at certain times of the month, altough I haven't been smart enough to track when.

any ideas? are the two related? could they be related to yeast?

I had a friend with ezcema and her's did the same thing. When she was pregnant, no ezcema...after the delivery it was back.

The same thing happened to me...Before my 3rd pregnancy, I
developed severe eczema on my right hand and palm. As soon
I became pregnant, it disappeared. That was 5 1/2 years
ago. Periodically, it will flare up again, during dry
weather periods, or when my immune system is low and I'm
stressed out.

My doctor (O.M.D.) claims it is a result of fatigue, abuse
on the body and blood stagnation. I also have had chronic
acne for the past 30 years...I believe due to a hormonal
imbalance and poor circulation. Any one with any helpful
suggesti

well, isn't that interesting! I mentioned this to my
doctor at the time, that it had gone away with each pregnancy and she said "well, maybe you just weren't washing your hands as much then" HUH? She flatly refused to admit that there might be a hormonal connection. I would think that SOMEONE might be interested in the connection.
Glad to know that it isn't just me.

Hi, His Angel.

There is no question but that your eczematous condition makes you more susceptible to the tinea. SO, your first thing to do is to get rid of the eczema.

Then, once you have that under control, topical Nizoral, used for a month or so, would be what I would do.

Resolving the eczema is your #1 priority. See the archives about eczema, about LGS, about allergy, about SR and in the meantime you might start the essential oils to see how much they might help.

This will have to be a step by step process. Let us iknow how you do and we will likely have to adjust what you are doing as you go.

Thanks, Dr. Stoll. I will read the archives on Eczema.
I've already read the ones on LGS. I would be very happy
to get rid of both the Eczema and Tinea. I'll let you know
how I do.

I'm an african american female and last year I was diagnosed with tinea versicolor. The spots only come during spring and summer months and about a week ago, the spots started to appear on my lips. This has never happened. Is it common for this?
