Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Hi, Meryl G, this is very interesting, considering I've had rosacea on my face and tinnea in my toenails for almost as long as I've had ME, which is 16 years, and no treatment has succeeded in removing the fungus, infections, parasites, or whatever. I'm currently pursuing the link between SIBO or IBS and rosacea, will let you know if it pans out. Meanwhile, your posted link could help to explain part of the physiology of long-lasting skin problems.

    Cheers, Lynne

    Hi Lynne,

    I've also had lifetime struggle with skin infections & eczema on my hands. Had some initial improvement on B2 Riboflavin. Recently it all flared again.
    Was having treatment for ?SIBO after a peritonitis-like episode. Had one week of Doxycycline 100mg/day (that followed a 1 week course of Flagyl) Found these antibiotics really hard to tolerate & they did not seem to help my abdomen. However, the palms of my hands cleared up completely, with just a little bit left on one finger. Have started back on B2 Riboflavin 25mg/day (Nature's Own) and the finger has cleared up.
    Have also noticed a certain white potato variety can make the eczema flare.
