Sounds like the jock itch I recently cured myself of.
I tried a 3 day Virgin Coconut Oil Detox against Candida

Last weekend I did a 3 day virgin coconut oil detox beginning Friday and ending Monday. I followed the recipe from the book Coconut Cures by Bruce Fife. Basically, I chose not to eat any food and just stick to 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil (VCO) every 2 hours beginning 8am until you consume up to 10 tablespoons in a day. I supplement this with fresh lemonade with Sea Salt
. I tried mixing the VCO with the lemon juice, but I found that I preferred drinking the VCO straight from a spoon.
My objective. I recently diagnosed myself with jock itch. Since jock itch is yeast induced, I figured I needed to do a candida cleanse. Looking in the natural health websites showed that candida cures took several months to accomplish. I tried using garlic under the soles of my feet and that gave me relief for 1 day. But I read that a 3 to 7 day VCO detox can wipe out candida easily by starving it and killing it at the same time!
My results? The 1st day of my detox I found the urge to release my bowels at least 4 times that day. In my 2nd day, with food relatively empty, I unloaded what looked like jets of white “smokey” clouds. Were they the yeast I so wanted to get rid off? My 3rd day brought me hunger and some heart pain. But by the end of monday I felt uneasy about the heart pain I decided to eat a late dinner before going to bed. By wednesday, the heart pain was gone.
Did the VCO detox kill the yeast that caused the jock itch? During the 3 days I was on VCO detox there was no jock itch, no itch at all. By thursday I felt some itch. But the itch went away Friday and no itch today Saturday.
I will think about scheduling a 2nd VCO detox next week just to make sure the my yeast population is checked.
Do I think VCO detox is effective against candida? Absolutely. Try it.
I also ate plain yoghurt so I wouldn't feel so hungry.
It is november 09 now, and I'm still jock itch free.
