You don't need to drown yourself in VCO, just a little goes a long way. Taking it internally is much better, though. It fights parasites inside and out that way. It's excellent for your skin. The strongyloides have just about ruined my skin. It looked like what they call "lizard skin" and when I started taking my coconut oil again every day and night, within a week, it was looking much better.
Have you tried Bentonite clay? It helped my skin a lot as well. It literally sucks the toxins right out of you, and it will remove the scaliness too. You should do it every night for about a week. It will make your skin redder at first, but that is because it is increasing the blood flow to that part of your body. The redness goes away.
