I have a small hole /wound from an apple cider vinegar burn on tip of my nose. Is there a way to make it heal faster or will the hole close/scar?

Likely to heal: Apple cider vinegar may cause a 2nd degree burn but probably not much worse. Gentle cleansing with mild soap and clear water may be all that is needed. Since it is unclear when the problem started, or how it was treated, you should see your primary medical provider, and may benefit from a topical like silver sulfadiazine. ...Read more

How can I treat keloid scars? Ii had laser therapy but they reappeared. Can I use aloe vera creams? Apple cider vinegar is not helping.

See a dermatologist: Probably injections of triamcinolone into the keloids. Laser & surgery likely to make worse. Vinegar (any kind) is good on salads. Not useful as medicine except (acetic acid) sometimes for infection in ear canal. You can use aloe but there will be no benefit. No need to repeat experiments already done, showing what works and what does not. See a skin expert specialist. ...Read more

What are the brown discolourations in the apple skin? Is it bad to eat it?!

What are the brown discolourations in the apple skin? Is it bad to eat it?!

Safe for most: According to a study in 2015, small brown spots on apples are caused by excessive rain late in the growing season. The larger brown spots can be caused by bruising (if its soft underneath), or insects, fungus, lack of calcium in the soil, or poor storage. Scrubbing the skin or peeling the skin before you eat it is a simple solution, but if you do happen to eat it there's no harm. ...Read more

Can chemotherapy kill the hpv virus? If it os there on the skin?

See answer: Though chemotherapy is used for advanced HPV-related cancers, I am unaware of systemic chemotherapy being used for genital or skin HPV warts as, at present, risks and costs far outweigh benefits. There are a variety of topical treatments available for visible warts. Though there is no specific cure for HPV infection, most infections resolve on their own within 2 years via your own immune system. ...Read more
