Is it hygienic to wash my vagiana with Vinegar to help stop itching and discharge from my vagiana?

Don't do it: Vaginal douching is never healthy. It will not effectively treat any infection; it often makes infections worse and can lead to even more serious problems. Itching and discharge means an infection that needs medical attention and proper treatment. It could be yeast or an STD, if at risk; and various other causes. Definitely do not use vinegar or anything else in your vagina. See a doctor soon. ...Read more

Bacterial Vaginosis: You should really see your doctor to be properly treated.

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

I've been having a constant salty vinegar taste on my tongue. I don't use whitening toothpaste or mouth wash, and I drink lots of water. What's wrong?

Altered taste...: Unusual taste sensations can be caused by many, many things. Even if your toothpaste is not a whitening toothpaste, this or your mouthwash could be causing your altered taste. These sensations are often caused by medication, diet, poor oral hygiene or even vitamin deficiencies. Brush your tongue with a toothbrush or tongue brush every day. Change your toothpaste and mouthwash. Good luck! ...Read more

My daughter has scalp ringworm and I've heard to wash hair with apple cider vinegar. Is that ok?

Oral meds: Once established in the roots of the hair, washes and topical lotions or creams are unlikely to cure this infection. Oral medication will get the anti-fungal treatment to the blood supply of the hair root and skin, and do the job. You need to see the doc to have this confirmed and learn about the meds that will be used. ...Read more

Can vinegar be used to clean wounds?

Can vinegar be used to clean wounds?

Bad Idea: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, vinegar, bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover wound with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infecte. ...Read more

Vinegar: Vinegar or Acetic Acid can be used on wounds when it is clinically warranted. Using vinegar to just clean wounds all of the time is not appropriate.
The two main uses of vinegar are: when we suspect a pseudomonas infection (a particular type of bacteria that causes a 'neon' greenish-blue drainage on wounds; and for jellyfish stings, as the Acetic Acid works on the stinging cells of the jellyfish. ...Read more
