has anyone had this symptom and what can you do to relieve it?

i have no idea what triggered it being ive taken so much stuff at once im not sure what it could be,
but i just cant take this symptom

i suspect parasites, or wheat allergy, heat in the liver
i did have a practitioner try to rife the lymes and that seemed to make everything worse

ive also had hair loss with it
i cant use any shampoo either or it will start burning again
i cant use any tea tree oil or lavendar or any essential oils
i am using a bar soap but its not relieving it

any suggestions let me know!
i wish i could put something on the scalp to soothe it but nothing is working yet

Are you on a strict sugar free diet including high glycemic complex carbs?

If not you should try this.

Your suspicion about parasites is probably correct. It has been for me since I treated aggressively with antiparasitics and salt/c.

They started to push through my scalp. I make a poultice of yogurt and milk and put it on my scalp. I cover with paper towels and a baseball cap.

It calms down the burning and drys them out. I also take 3-4 tblsps of coconut oil a day. Alternate with kefir or yogurt.

Also check out Humaworms website because they have a medicated cream for parasites. I have not tried this, so I don't know how it works. Hope this helps,

Gael

Avoid bar soap, lots of caustic chemicals in that - and most shampoos, even tooth pastes are very harsh.

Avalon organics shampoo makes a rosemary shampoo. that is very helpful. You can find it at Vitacost.com Dilute it, don't put in on straight.

IMO, you still need complex carbs to survive. Vegetables are carbs that are vital to your existence. But, of course, cut all all simple carbs . . . all processed foods.

Good luck.

glm,

I just got the topical coconut oil for the scalp.

I hope coconut oil had some anti-fungal properties to it : )

Coconut oil has antifungal, antibacterial and antiparasitic properties. www.coconutoil.com For some reason the coconut oil didn't calm down the burning for me when I applied to my scalp.

The poultice of yogurt and milk was/is the only thing that seemed to work. The milk has lactoferrin in it and is drying when mixed with the yogurt.

Plus you are putting good bacteria on your scalp. Maybe the coconut oil will help you. It helps me a great deal when I take it internally. Let us know how it works for you,

Gael

I like fresh lemon juice. It really helped my hot burning neck.

...have had this literally for decades, and my mother before me.

Seems to be related to yeasts/fungus, could definitely be parasites, who knows. It's nasty.

Will try the yogurt/milk. Every time my scalp goes to sore, a little later the hair falls out.

new symptom, my nose tip got blackheads and is starting to go a little bulbous. I do believe this is related to parasite treatment. i am using MMS (Miracle Mineral)in the bath and some, internally.

I've had it- and agree that it may be yeast or parasites

is your scalp itchy at all? This is another indicator i think- the coconut oil might help

tea tree oil is good but some people's scalps are sensitive to it and it can make things worse

there were some really good tips here- reminded me i need to keep eating my kefir and coconut oil!

is this just regular milk?

yes, i have itching, and everytime it happens it looks thinner, and i dont see new hairs growing back?

does this ever go away? this is the most devasting symptom

i use a bar soap from sappo hill that is natural , one may have coconut oil in it, but then after a couple of weeks it gets oily

it seem to start one day i was getting my haircut and the shampoo he used was tingling greatly in my hair but i didnt think anything of it, it was regular shampoo, but then it got thinner, and later on the burning started, i cant hardly fix it, touch it, nevermind go back to the hair dresser to style it

i am very discouraged cause trying to kill the lyme has just made everything else mad i would assume

Yes it is regular milk. BugBit, the symptons from your nose are most likely the parasites trying to exit.

I've had this...in my case it was toxins and the pain was relieved instantly after coffee enemas
