For me, it first came in Fall 2016, starting with the mouth, progressing to scalp, torso, and worst of all, genital area. Purple spots, itchy and painful, general rash all over torso. Worst were itchy open lesions on genital area. Best thing for the mouth and skin was coconut oil. Also took zinc and l-lysine, as someone else mentioned, Vit B, and probiotics. Pretty much went away by Spring 2017, except occasional bouts of minor rash, depending on stress level and diet. Lots of greens are best.
