Just prior to New Years 2017 I came across an African treatment for chigoe flea infestations. The solution sounded odd, pour some purple crystals into a bathtub full of hot water and soak in it until the water is cold. Would this really work for me?
I scoured the internet for more information on this solution, and felt comfortable enough to give it a go. I found a local pharmacy who would order it for me, and I also bought products from the US and Thailand.
Potassium Permanganate (aka Condi’s Crystals), a long-used solution for eczema, is a highly-effective oxidizer and will quite literally (and safely) blast off the top layer of your skin and reach deeper to help draw out junk you don’t want to know about. It took me twenty baths and daily use of the Antiparasitic Body Oil in S.O.S. Scabies to entirely clear my parasitic skin issues. They went in February 2017 and have not returned.
The formula is 15g (1tbsp) of Potassium Permanganate to one full tub (150L) of hot water. Soak until the water goes cold. Keep the purple water out of your nose, eyes, and mouth. Bring a large washcloth into the bath and scrub a dub dub. It’ll turn brown. It can be washed repeatedly (on its own) until it falls apart from the PP oxidation.
If you can’t find it locally at a compounding pharmacy, there’s an American guy on ebay, “manofohm” who sells a very good product and delivers quickly via fedex. The price is good too. Don’t be tempted by the fish products sold from Thailand, they take ages to arrive (4 months for my order) and the quality is disappointing.
To remove PP stains on your nails and tub mix some water with cream of tartar and a bit of hydrogen peroxide, then soak or spray it on. It works quickly.
