PATM is a hair infection - Ketaconazole shampoo effective -1% over counter, 2% w RX

You can easily test for it by rolling a lint roll and looking for those fibers, that are 1/10 of a hair diameter, but still visible to the naked eye. This fibers are spirochetes which means its somehow related to Lyme, but everyone loves to group so many things to Lyme and this has nothing to do with ticks, its an infection of the hair. The areas where the particles are produced are head, nose, eyebrows and genital, area all with hair. It loves the eyebrows because of the hair thickness. If you get a handheld USB microscope on Ali Baba for $50 you can see these fibers wrapped around your hair and on scalp. The only thing that helped with the PATM reactions is this and it lasts about 2 days. So you have to keep using. But there is no question PATM reactions will go away for at least 1 day . Use this Ketaconazole shampoo effective -1% over counter, 2% w RX. Wash hair, and whole body with it.

Have used Ketaconazole 2% shampoo for more than a decade and have not noticed any reduction in PATM reactions. In fact my PATM has only gotten worse though I don’t believe it has anything to do with the shampoo. If PATM is related to a fungus or yeast then Ketaconazole may be beneficial, but I, unfortunately, haven’t experienced any relief.

Thanks for the info, but our hair isn't the root of the problem. That's why your "quick fix" only gives you temporary relief.

everyone can believe what they want. This is a quick fix, if you dont want to test it, you dont have to, but I hope others do and then share it needs to be confirmed. I was so  hopeful if I took the oral version of this it would cure, but it did not, but the shampoo will work for that same day. Use in the Morning.

An instant solution is going bald in the head and pubic region. Also no facial hair. Even nose hair, use the machine to remove it.

I guess, be happy it can work for 1 day or  2, but it wont die and oral Ketaconazole did not remove the infection, going bald everywhere is also the ultimate solution, but not sure if Im ready, but yes you need to keep using, first see if it helps then see how long it works for, but after 14 years its the first time something works.
