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

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

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
