Is raw apple cider vinegar good to fight toenail fungus?

Is raw apple cider vinegar good to fight toenail fungus?

Not bad.: The vinegar is an acid, which most opportunistic fungus and bacteria don't like to live in! The issue is that it often can't penetrate the nail enough to get to all of the fungus. There are oral medicines and a couple topical solutions that are fda approved for this condition. See a podiatrist for all the options that may be best for you. ...Read more

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

No: People selling apple cider vinegar are enjoying its popularity, all the way to the bank. Haven't seen any scientific proof to back up the many myths and rumors around apple cider vinegar.

I recently removed a healthy mole with apple cider vinegar and was wondering if there are still cells remaining in my skin and can those turn cancerou?

"Healthy" mole?: How do you know for sure that it was a "healthy" mole and not a cancerous one in the first place? We generally don't like when patients treat themselves, especially with something that could very well be a melanoma, as a worst case scenario. Not to say that it was, of course, but please see a Dermatologist in the very near future. ...Read more

How do I apply apple cider vinegar to get rid of my skin tags in my armpits?

Interesting...: Haven't heard of any edible or drinkable vinegar being effective in getting rid of skin tags. Best to have one's primary care doctor look at them to see if they are warts or whatnot. A doctor can help remove skin tags. ...Read more

Are retinoids and other skin medicines prescribed? What do retinoids do? Apple cider vinegar daily drinkin/detox isn't helping.

Are retinoids and other skin medicines prescribed? What do retinoids do? Apple cider vinegar daily drinkin/detox isn't helping.

Yes..: Retinoids are prescription medications and are vitamin A derivatives which alter the DNA of skin cells, leading to less production of pimples and follicular occlusion. They can cause significant dryness of the skin, so a noncomedogenic moisturizer may need to be used along with them. Topical retinoids are first line therapy for acne, so I definitely encourage you to try one if this is a problem. ...Read more

I wash my hair with head and shoulders once a week, by day three it itching. I don't have dandruff but my skin is very dry. Can I wash my hair with apple cider vinegar?

I wash my hair with head and shoulders once a week, by day three it itching. I don't have dandruff but my skin is very dry. Can I wash my hair with apple cider vinegar?

Itchy scalp: Itching of the scalp can have several causes. Dandruff is the most common cause and is believed to be caused by a yeast. Head & Shoulders contains zinc pyrithione, which is an anti-yeast medication. For some, this works well. When there is no redness or scale in the itchy areas, one can try a tar-based shampoo that contains MENTHOL. This works for most persons, but is not so easy to find. ...Read more

See your doctor: I'm not quite sure what you had asked cause the question was cut off. With that said, the wart should be looked at by a podiatrist or dermatologist. It will be in your best interest to confirm the diagnosis and exclude a malignant lesion. Furthermore your doctor can help rid of the wart faster than home based solutions so you can be on your feet pain free in no time. Good luck. ...Read more

Cover stick.: Don't do that again! For now, leave it alone, don't expose it to sunlight for 6 months (which can lead to sunburn with permanent discoloration). Wear a non-comedogenic sunscreen, apply often. To hide it, use a cover-up type of makeup. ...Read more

What exactly does apple cider vinegar do for skin and acne? Does it exfoliate and reveal new layers?

Different theories: I don't know if anyone knows for sure as this hasn't been the subject of much if any research. According to http://hisacne. Com/acne-treatments/natural-acne-treatments-apple-cider-vinegar/, it removes oil thus unclogging pores & kills bacteria, while according to http://www. Skinacea. Com/acne/acne-treatment-acv.

2 pink bumps after shaving labia majora, painless, not itchy. I picked them open, held apple cider vinegar on, burnt skin leaving a pink crater, help!

See Dr.: Your first mistake was"picking them open." the second mistake was trying to treat them yourself with apple cider vinegar. At this point, you need to see a gyn dr. Or a dermatologist for an official/professional evaluation of the area to get treated properly, with what may or may not include rx medications. Good luck. ...Read more

Confirm, then treat.: If you continue with your self treatment, in all likelihood, a bacterial infection is soon to follow. The viral wart usually disappears when a bacterial infection starts. However, I recommend that you seek evaluation and treatment from a specialist with experience in recognizing and treating foot lesions. ...Read more

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
