YES Fungal skin infections are quite common in the Philippines. I had jock itch for years and years, tried the herbal and medical remedies that I could afford, but none of them really got rid of it. Coconut oil is cheap and easily available in the Philippines. I had been using processed vegetable oil thinking it was better than our traditional coconut oil. Three months ago I started to take 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil everyday. The results were astonishing. My jock itch disappeared and has not come back, my eczema disappeared, my bowel movements are regular, I digest better and sleep more soundly now. I am so impressed. Now I cook everything in traditional coconut oil.
