Is it true that you can use both tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar to treat molluscum?

Is it true that you can use both tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar to treat molluscum?

Unsure: There are many reports (especially on the internet on non-peer/doctor reviewed sites) of people trying apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil for molluscum with reports of positive results but, as far as I know, no controlled studies proving profound effectiveness have been done. However, I am not completely up on the literature and so can't say this for certain. ...Read more

I want to loss weight can I start with hot water + apple cider vinegar and honey + lipton green tea after every meal would it help me to loss weight?

Have a plan: Better: have a plan for getting the right number of calories, balanced nutrition, exercise, fluid intake, sleep & accountability. Tracking your data (calories, nutrition) is very useful (I use LoseIt). A personal traininer or class can be helpful. But make a plan, review wtih knowledgeable clinician, stick to it, BE PATIENT. Lose weight = short term goal & alone never succeeds. Lifestyle is better ...Read more

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

Real antifungal: Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes. ...Read more

I irritated/burned my inner lip with full strength Apple cider vinegar. What can I do to make it feel better? I placed a warm black tea bag on it.

I irritated/burned my inner lip with full strength Apple cider vinegar. What can I do to make it feel better? I placed a warm black tea bag on it.

Acid burn.: Vinegar is acidic. Tannic acid in tea is acidic. Not an appropriate remedy. Get Orabase-B at your pharmacy. Dab on small amount w q-tip. Call your Dentist for appt ASAP. Dentist may want to prescribe Kenalog (triamcinolone). Take OTC analgesics exactly as directed on package. From now on limit vinegar to cleaning and cooking...it's not a mouth wash. ...Read more

What's better for head lice and nits: apple cider vinegar vs. Tea tree oil?

What's better for head lice and nits: apple cider vinegar vs. Tea tree oil?

Neither: Nits are the eggs of head lice, so you are right to seek a treatment that kills both. Vinegar and oil tend to fail. Pesticides can be toxic. We recommend harmless interventions, like forming a silicon shell on the head with applications such as licemd. ...Read more

Have a very dry scalp. Used everything from sulfur shampoo, to tea tree oil, to apple cider vinegar (looked online for solutions).doesnt seem to help.

Dry scalp: Prevent dryness (don't wash hair too often). A primary doctor or dermatologist can look for psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections if worrisome scalp symptoms. If checking for fungal infections, the dermatologist may take hair samples to culture. Doctors may also try some cortisone or Kenalog (triamcinolone) sprays to counteract dryness. Some patients put olive oil on the scalp for a while, before washing. ...Read more

To treat bv, does bathing in warm water mixed with apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil treat cure the infection? Any suggestions?

Antibiotics v yogurt: Bacterial vaginosis is an imbalance in vaginal bacteria. Standard treatment is antibiotics, not bathing as described so go see family doc or gynecologist. There is some evidence that eating yogurt w/lactobacilli might help restore balance but studies aren't definitive. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic.

Will lavender or rosemary oil help treat nail fungus? Have already tried apple cider vinegar, listerine, coconut and tea tree oil

Not usually.: Toenail fungus is very common, and unfortunately very difficult to cure 100%. We can test the nail to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, and from there you have several options: topical or oral antifungal medications, laser nail treatment, or removal of the nail in severe cases. See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you. ...Read more

What's good for a sore throat? I have apple cider vinegar, organic honey, salt, chamomile tea, eggs & rum.

Honey and Tea: If you have honey at home, you might want to try mixing honey and fresh lemon juice in some warm water and sip. Alcohol should be avoided since it is dehydrating. While there is certainly nothing wrong with chamomile tea, peppermint or licorice tea may be more comforting. Apple cider vinegar may well be irritate the throat unless diluted significantly. ...Read more
