More beneficial!: Cayenne has many proven benefits. Capsacain may be mutagenic to stomach cells but also has anti-cancer properties.

My daughter has scalp ringworm and I've heard to wash hair with apple cider vinegar. Is that ok?

Oral meds: Once established in the roots of the hair, washes and topical lotions or creams are unlikely to cure this infection. Oral medication will get the anti-fungal treatment to the blood supply of the hair root and skin, and do the job. You need to see the doc to have this confirmed and learn about the meds that will be used. ...Read more

Furthermore, enough irritaiton can cause baldness (and responds to anti-inflammatories). I guess I am recommending a dermatologist. ...Read more
