My son had some random spots come up on his arms. I didn't notice them at first... until they started to cover his arms. Then I noticed they were on his legs as well. I checked his stomach, and it was clear. The spots were only on his extremities.
My son picked at the spots because they itched, and they would scab over. Then they started to get a hole in them and re-scab. They really were disgusting, and, being an adult, I know when you pick a scab you get left with a scar. These spots just covered his arms and legs!
I looked this condition up on the Internet, and it seemed similar to folliculitis. It was almost like a rash of some kind. I did not have any idea where to even start, so I started Thieves in an attempt to kill the infection. It did help a little.
My mom suggested Melaleuca Alternifolia, so I tried that as well. I am sure with enough consistency, they may have done the trick. But this took months! I applied every night before bed. I probably should have applied daily as well, but I just forgot to. My son had the spots at the end of the school year and through the entire summer.
I was so frustrated because I could not figure out what to do, and I was blowing through my Thieves essential oil blend. I met a man at Silver Retreat who mentioned he had his nanny use Lemon Myrtle on an allergy rash she had for years, and it cleared up after a week.
I came home and switched to Lemon Myrtle, and, after another four weeks, the spots were finally gone! My son still has white spots that are scars. I am now using Lavender to help improve the look of his scars. But I am so happy the spots are finally gone!
Not only did it look terrible, but it looked like a hole deep in his skin that was an open wound and could easily be infected. According to a friend whose son has the same thing, the doctor said it was a type of virus. Who knows what it was, but it is GONE.
