Hi My name is Danna,
I am an Army Veteran who served in Iraq right after the intial attack. I have a skin disorder and the VA doctors just tell me its a fungus from wearing all our gear in the hot heat. They gave me fungal creams but they are not working and the White blotches are spreading all over. Please if any one has another diagnosis I would appreciate it so i can get the right treatment.

  • Can you get a second opinion? If not, I have heard that bathing in a diluted vinegar solution may help because it changes the pH of the skin and creates a hostile environment for fungus to grow it. No idea if it really works.
