I have had flat warts on my legs for ten years. I've used duct tape and apple cider vinegar for two months. It helps but new ones come back. Help?
See a Dermatologist: Flat warts can be a real challenge. First, shaving over warts tends to spread them. Second, topical wart preparations can be cumbersome to apply and are less effective for this type of wart. I would see your pcp or a dermatologist to talk about options. Prescription medications and in-office procedures could solve your problem. Good luck to you. ...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

For what?: For what purpose?Get a more detailed answer ›
Not entirely but...:
Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues.
Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more

Hadn't heard that...: I am a big fan of olive oil (extra virgin) as moisturizer for eczema. As i tell my patients, use the olive olive, but don't put your kid in the salad.
