Please forgive me as I have not posted here in quite some time.Since changing my diet in the summer of 07 I have gotten off medication,lost 30lbs,improved eye sight, have plenty of energy & better attitude in general and basically enjoy a healthy existence. That said I have avoided posting this on any forum till now, because of its somewhat embarrassing nature. I have had a persistent rash in my butt cheeks for about a year now. I have tried external homeopathic salves and such with NO positive results. I have also systematically excluded different foods for weeks at a time,no results. Although I have always eaten a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, these foods now comprise at least 80% (or more) of my dietary intake. I do not believe it is external but internal, something I am allergic to or ??? If anyone has experienced this or has any suggestions - please!
