What are these?  My AB+ DH has had them for over a week now.  They don't seem to be getting any better.

He had this thing around this time last year and it went away on it own after a couple of weeks....

He's exhausted, sleepy tired for the past couple of weeks, too.  He started with a cold in March, got over it, then got it again a couple of weeks later.  Then the rash came up.  I think that's how it went.

He's not totally compliant.  He smokes, drinks coffee, sweet tea and cokes (but not daily.)  Says he can't drink water because it makes his stomach burn.  So, he never drinks water.  He lives on sweet tea, which is not all that sweet.  Other than those things, he pretty much follows the diet, but he's not picky about the bread that he buys from the store.

Anyone have any clues?

an excess of ghee consumption perhaps??

try lowering your intake......your body might not be metabolizing all that oil as fast as you consume it

I had a red itchy round patch on my torso and it stayed for about 2 years. I never could figure out what caused it or why it went away on its own but my diet is very compliant so I think I was reacting to something environmental.

Occasionally I get itchy skin or patches and it ends up being a new soap I am using. He could be having an allergic reaction to soap, detergent, etc.

I had red itchy round spots on my back, thought it might be some sort of allergic reaction, paid no attention to them, had them for about a year and a half. Ended up being ringworm . I started with 1, ended up with about 12. Once we figured out what they were hubby did not even want to sleep next to me. ROFL

I get red rashes from red wine, purple grapes, and goji berries.  My Mother got them from strawberries.  There could be something compliant with the diet but not with his individual system.

Too much caffeine leeches out sodium & potassium.  I had a problem last year where the more tired I got the more caffeine I pumped into my body.   My temperature dropped to 95 deg F and my sodium levels were below normal.  I am now relegated to 4 green tea bags a day.  I feel great & have  lots of energy.

There will be people who will tell you to have him quit smoking now.  As an ex-smoker who has quit more times than I can count, I’m telling you that he has to do it on his own terms.  Get the diet into place 1st, then the exercise and the desire to quit smoking will follow.

This is my DH that I'm speaking of.  No, he's not been eating the ghee.  It started 1.5 weeks before I made my first batch of ghee.

Thanks for the encouragement.

I looked it up on the internet and one site said that it was a fungal infection.

Narnia not sure what whelpy means...like a little bit raised? The way I figured out what mine were was because I looked up pictures on google.

Yeah...raised.  All different sizes and actually, not completely round, some oval, some jagged shapes.

Sounds like Pityriasis Versicolor (Tinea Versicolor) - I have just been researching this myself because I think I have it.  I think mine is from a combination of very high humidity recently (when will it ever stop raining?), taking a steroid inhaler for my asthma and my diet has not been compliant.

Here is some things you can do -

Antifungal culinary herbs - garlic, turmeric, oregano, sage and cinnamon.

Probiotics - especially Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Bulgaricus

Vit A, B-complex, C and E

Caprylic Acid, Grapefruit Seed Extract, EFA from Fish Oil or Flaxseed Oil

Topically - Calendula cream, oil blend with Tea Tree Oil/Lavender

No yeast foods, fermented foods, sugary foods

Keep skin clean and dry

I'd be interested if anyone else could chip in with advice for a Type O Gatherer who can't escape the humid climate, still needs to take her steroids for Asthma for now and really needs to get back onto the BTD/GTD wagon!

the only thing that cured mine (tinea corporis) was the cream you get at the store for it. I tried all sorts of natural stuff...even did a candida cleanse for 30 days. The cream made it go away in a few days.

Ha ha  - I know, I know!

Edited to add: Most of the research pointed to people with compromised immune systems being very susceptible to this - so the BTD/GTD would definitely be of great value in combatting it.

I had tinea versicolor some years ago (2003).  Redness like a rash (but no itching or pain) on my abdomen and a small area on my upper back.  I don't know how I got it but eventually it went away.  The cream my dermatologist prescribed did not work.  I had to use Selsun Blue shampoo - I had read about that treatment online somewhere.  I would slather my torso with Selsun Blue shampoo and sit with that on for about 20 - 30 minutes.  Then I'd shower it off and use it to wash my hair, too.  It worked better than the prescription ointment.  Why the Tinea finally went away I have no idea.  It came, it scared me, it finally left.    Had I started BTD then I'm sure it would have helped.
