Hullify! Your Itchy, Red, Dry Rashes Caused by Yeast or Parasites

by Gayla C.

July 2008

I was reading your (BHS) testimonies and came across one mother that referred to needing a remedy "for my 3 year-old daughter which actually tames an itchy, red, dry rash on her hands that has plagued her for two years."

This sounds just like my daughter's problem several years ago! We discovered that the rash was caused by a yeast infection or a parasite. We treated her (after getting no help from a doctor) with Black Walnut. We used leaves and hull and they both work. She took it internally, twice a day for about 2 weeks. She had immediate results after the first tea, so I made it into a tincture. I treated her again a month later because of a recurrence, which makes me think it was a parasite, and we never had another problem.

It was a terribly painful rash with such an easy remedy. It made me a true believer in herbs. I hope this remedy is helpful to many mothers out there in the trenches fighting for their children's health.

Hi April, I am so grateful for the peppermint & spearmint tea bags that you sent me. That was so nice of you! When I opened the package it smelled soooo good! I tried the peppermint in the tea I made today and this batch came out better than any of the others so far. I think I'm finally getting the hang of making the tea without over-steeping it. And the peppermint really helps. I only put one teabag in for a pot of water big enough to fill a pitcher.

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
