Question: Guru, I have a skin problem. I have had it ever since I was a baby and it drives me crazy. I itch and I cannot sleep. I was wondering if you could please suggest some outer or inner remedies.

Sri Chinmoy: Only inner remedies can cure you permanently. Through prayer and meditation you can try.

The outer remedies also can help you. You have been to a doctor, I am sure. Ask the doctor if you can sponge with coconut water. Kindly ask the doctor first. If the doctor agrees, if the doctor says it will not be harmful, you can use coconut water to wash your body. It will help you. But please ask your doctor first.
