How do I apply apple cider vinegar to get rid of my skin tags in my armpits?

Interesting...: Haven't heard of any drinkable vinegar being effective in getting rid of skin tags. Best to have one's primary care doctor look at them to see if they are warts or whatnot. A doctor can help remove skin tags.

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.

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.

Is kroger apple cider vinegar good for skin and hair?

No: People selling apple cider vinegar are enjoying its popularity, all the way to the bank. Haven't seen any scientific proof to back up the many myths and rumors around apple cider vinegar. One can look at it as just another edible vinegar, for use to make one's foods more interesting.

Is diluted Apple cider vinegar really a safe facial toner and does it help dry skin?

Is diluted Apple cider vinegar really a safe facial toner and does it help dry skin?

No harm: You will smell delicious. I suggest a ceramide cream. Eucerin, Aveeno, (oatmeal) CeraVe, generics are all more effective and nicer. Look for ceramides on the label.

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.

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.

I'm pregnant and I have a fungal rash. I use to put Apple cider vinegar on it but is it safe to use on my skin now that I'm pregnant?

Safe: Apple cider vinegar on your skin won't hurt your baby. Over the counter yeast medications such as Monostat are also safe for you and your baby while pregnant. Best wishes!
