Infection (Definition)

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more

I've heard that using an Apple cider vinegar soak is good to help cure yeast infection. Soaking a cloth and laying over vaginal walls, is this true?

Don't do it: This won't do any good at all and could be irritating and make yeast symptoms worse. Vaginal yeast infections need medical treatment. There are excellent over-the-counter drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole (Diflucan), or any of several vaginal creams -- look for active ingredient ending in "azole". If any doubt about the diagnosis, or if OTC treatment doesn't work, see a doctor. ...Read more

How long does it take apple cider vinegar to get rid of my yeast infection after soaking a tampon in it and inserting twice a day?

No effect!: Apple cider vinegar WILL NOT affect your yeast and may even be harmful for your vagina. DO NOT continue this practice as your vaginal pH should not be more acidic than it is naturally and the vinegar may cause more harm than good. Please see a doctor and get real medication. ...Read more

I have a yeat infection which I used the mobistar 3 day treatment and have lingering symptom will raw apple cider vinegar work?

Yeast: Perhaps the diagnosis was incorrect, you had more than one infection at the same time, the medication you used was ineffective, or some other factor. Apple cider vinegar is not likely to solve this problem. Go see a doctor. ...Read more

If I do an apple cider vinegar enema and lots of white puffy mucussy looking stuff comes out, what is that? Is it biofilm or yeast or parasites?

That's normal: Forgive my frankness. You shouldn't do this to yourself. You're being played for a sucker by charlatans. You're seeing normal epithelial mucus coagulated by acid. If you buy into phony "yeast" or "biofilm" disinformation, you will never feel well again. If you're interested in "natural healing", find an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community. But stop this stuff. ...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?

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. Com/health/bacterial-vaginosis/ds01193 & http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/bv/stdfact-bacterial-vaginosis. Htm. ...Read more

Is it ok to drink apple cider vinegar to help get rid of candida?

Vinegar and yeast: Most people are able to consume small amounts of vinegar while still reaping the benefits of an anti-candida diet. Particularly herbal vinegars and apple cider vinegar have been safely added to most candida diets without a problematic reaction.

I have an apple cider vinegar burn on the groin area, I just need to know what the treatment for that is?

I have an apple cider vinegar burn on the groin area, I just need to know what the treatment for that is?

Aloe, calendula: A burn like this should heal fairly quickly even without treatment, as long as it does not get infected. I advise applying aloe vera gel and/or calendula lotion or oil 2-3 times a day to help speed the healing process. Taking a good multivitamin and Vitamin C 1000 mg 3-4 times a day should also speed the healing a bit. ...Read more

If I take a bath in apple cider vinegar (diluted) after he ejaculates in me does this cut the chances of bv?

If I take a bath in apple cider vinegar (diluted) after he ejaculates in me does this cut the chances of bv?

No: Bv is naturally in your vagina, along with "yeast." when one or the other gets off balance, the other will 'over grow'. People think of BV and yeast as infections, but they are really just overgrowth of something normal. The fishy smell after intercourse (sex) is as much the semen as it is you. Use condoms to help with that and for safer sex! If you need treatment for bv, see a doctor 1st. ...Read more

Tue. I had sex, wed. I took my bcp 3 hours late, yesterday I used apple cider vinegar as a BV treatment and today I woke up bleeding. What's going on?

Tue. I had sex, wed. I took my bcp 3 hours late, yesterday I used apple cider vinegar as a BV treatment and today I woke up bleeding. What's going on?

Many possibilities: But the most likely are simply breakthrough bleeding or irritation/trauma from your vinegar treatment. I would not normally expect a 3 hour delay with your pill would matter, but it's possible. The vinegar is not a good idea. Using douches is not a good idea. They tend to disrupt your natural defenses and create more problems than they solve. There are specific BV treatments. Get checked. ...Read more

How can I stop bleeding that's caused by irritation due to an apple cider vinegar BV treatment? I need it to stop very soon, kind of today.

Stop use of irritant: If you know the bleeding is from an irritant- stop the irritant. Never use it again. Flush the irritated area with plenty of tap water, colder is better (to help constrict the small bleeding vessels and produce clots.). ...Read more

I think I have bacterial vaginosis went to the doctor to get medicine but infection came back it seems like nothing is working. So now I soak in apple cider vinegar for 30 mins hopefully it works.?

BV returns: Bacterial vaginosis recurs in most patients who are treated. It could be because your sexual partner (s) are carriers, or a re-infection with your own vagial flora that was not completely wiped out. There are several different medications for BV, some pills, some gels/creams. If one did not work, maybe try another. Douches are an alternative, but frequently cause UTI or worsening of BV. ...Read more
