BXO treatment...Good morning,
I was recently diagnosed with BXO. Right away the doctors want to start cutting away. (circumcision) I'd rather not if I can avoid it. Seems there are a lot of different things people have tried with some success. any suggestions? I found a post in this forum that suggested this:
Take several doses of:
ECHINACEA (4 X daily for 3 days)200x or 1M
HYPERICUM (2 X daily the 3 days)
Wait a week and take another dose of the ECHINACEA. This must be Homeopathic
Echinacea, not the liquid herb over the counter.
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Cloudbase 8 years agoPlease take three doses of Arsenicum Album 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.
One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.
Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
♥ kadwa 8 years agoThank you. I purchased the product in pill form via the internet today. I'll see what happens in 15 days after taking it.
Cloudbase 8 years agoI've had BXO and was able to overcome it with out medical treatment. This was so scary at first but once you understand what it is and have a plan of action those fears subside. This may take a few weeks, but please please please do not be discouraged. This is a difficult skin disorder and it occurs slowly so obviously to get rid of it will take a little time.
First buy 100% tea tree oil. and 100% certified emu oil. BOTH OF THESE MUST BE PURE and from a reputable company. After that find a small bottle that you can mix these two ingredients together. I'd say 3 teaspoons of emu oil and 15 drops of tea tree oil. At first it may sting a little but thats ok. Apply 5 times a day or whenever you feel like the mixture has been absorbed into your skin.
Next, go to the store and pick up 100% PURE salmon oil (make sure it is only salmon oil and not the cheap stuff that is mixed with other fish oils). Also grab a bottle of vitamin A. Take the fish oil as directed (probably about 3000 MG per day) both of these are extremely good for inflammation and skin issues.
Cut all sugar and fake sugar out of your diet!!! Viruses and bacteria live off of these components. Also stay away from packaged and processed food. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, and meat and quit the desserts.
I know this sucks, but its so worth it to rid yourself of this horrible disease.
Follow this regime for at least 3-4 weeks minimum. I'd be interested to know your progress. It only took a few weeks for me to see tremendous results. I tried so many different things and finally found something that worked. The white skin started to peel away and was replaced by fresh new skin.
I've kept my diet pure and healthy and so far have seen no occurrences. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Don't miss days and don't get discouraged early on! GOOD LUCK!!
dfrance 7 years agoWow! Thank you very much dfrance! I will give this a try. The doctors gave me Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream, a type of steriod. This took away most of the problem areas. But I am still left areas of white skin, especially around the frenulum and one side of the glans. And the foreskin still has a tight ring making it hard to retract. But it is a lot better than it was before the cream. I will definitely try your regimine. I will miss the goodies, but I'm willing to see if this will work.
I am planning on getting married in March, so I hope to have this taken care of by then.
Cloudbase 7 years agoCloudbase,
One other thing....the mixture is even more effective if you put DMSO in it...there were some stubborn white parts of the skin and I felt like they couldn't be penetrated by my mixture. So I put this DMSO 99.9% pure in my tea tree oil mix and BINGO it got through. Read about DMSO. There are some people who will say it is not safe but that is absolutely BS and I'd say they work for a pharmaceutical company if that is their stance. I have used it for weeks with no problems and have heard many good things about it. Mix DMSO 50% and Tea tree oil 50% to take care of the tough areas. Keep up with that clean diet. Talk to you later!
dfrance 7 years agoOk, thank you for the tip. Should I just start using the DMSO right away, or only if it is needed? Is this something I can find at a health food store? Does DMSO stand for something, just in case I need to be more specific with the store merchants?
Thank you again,
Cloudbase 7 years agoDMSO is not something you will find at the store I don't think. I ordered it online. It is actually called dimethyl sulfoxide. It is an organic solvent mainly. It is used for many different things though. DMSO is EXTREMELY good at penetrating skin. I felt like that white skin was stopping the tea tree oil from getting through but with DMSO it jumps right through that tough layer of weird skin.
I found that using DMSO sped my healing process up immensely. So as long as you are fine with DMSO then I'd say just start with it. If I had known about it before I would have definitely used it.
dfrance 7 years agoJeremy,
One other thing...buy a bottle of Red Clover. Make sure it is a good quality red clover. Take the capsules two at a time three to four times a day.
I can't say why I recommend this because I don't really have any proof other than that it seemed to heal me from the inside. My body started rejecting the BXO disease or whatever you wanted to call it. The Tea Tree Oil is good for the surface, but I don't think it takes care of the root cause of the problem. I found Red Clover through my study of this disease so that is why I'm HIGHLY recommending that you take it. I have been taking it for weeks and it seems to be doing some amazing things down there.
dfrance 7 years agoHi Dfrance,
I have been on a healthy diet now for about 2 weeks, and I have already seen an improvement. I am going to a store today that I think may have the ingredients for the mixture you suggested.
You said 3 teaspoons of emu oil per 15 drops of tea tree oil. What about the DMSO? How much do I add to this mixture? I know you said 50/50 for DMSO and Tea Tree oil for tough spots, but what about the original mixture...
Cloudbase 7 years agoI just eye-balled it. I put about half DMSO in the Tea Tree oil. Then just add maybe a couple tea spoons of the EMU. Go get that red clover though! That was the deal breaker for me along with the health diet.
Glad to hear things are getting better. The itching stops with the clover too!
