oh now this one is easy.  Put some oil of oregano in your shampoo and body wash in the shower.  In fact, add some tea tree oil for good measure as well.  For the really affected areas, apply it direct, full strength, and let it sit on there till it stops hurting, then leave it on for an extra hour for good measure.  Heck just leave it on, wash only if necessary.  Point is it could be a fungus -- which would be solved with both the tea tree oil and oregano oil if you make your mix potent enough -- personally I throw it in some head and shoulders so it has extra skin flake fighting power.

 

Now bear in mind, the oregano oil is potent stuff, and painful, and you sure as heck don't want to get it in your eyes.  Try not to waste money on product that isn't relatively pure (90% or better), and if there is no purity given on the package, then how the heck are you to know if you are getting ripped off and being sold oregano oil cut with some other oil (such as olive oil).

 

Either way the anti-bacterial properties of these two plants come into play here, for they are both good at that as well.  I know for a fact that the oregano oil can even help with viral infections (BUT NOT ALL, IT IS REALLY PICKY WITH THESE).

 

Either way if I were a betting man, I would guess that your skin chemistry has made your skin a good place for these critters to live, and careful because the more you pick at it the more it seems to spread (indicating that you probably need this to infect your sub-dermal layer in order to get this deep-rooted problem.

 

Chances are it won't go away and you'll have to deal with it for the rest of your life.  But if you treat yourself with this stuff it should make it so that it would take 2 weeks of forgotten treatment before your problem resurfaces.

 

Also bear in mind, this can be contagious to other people, the doctors say it isn't, but I've seen other people develop this condition from close exposure.

Thnx, Stealthc.  See just as I thought, leprosy!  No, just kidding.  I have tea tree oil but not oregano oil, so I'll start with what I have then look for oregano oil.
