Yes. Olive oil or any oil will basically chock the lice. But you still need to remove the nets with soft comb.
Not sure. I've heard of people using tea tree oil for the treatment of lice, but I cannot comment on how successful it is. I would not use it myself.
Maybe, maybe not. Once aware of a wetting agent, lice can hibernate without breathing for up to 18 hours, making many of these oils just a messy event. The vinegar can aid in softening the attachment of the nits to the hair, making removal easier. The acidity of the vinegar (pickling or cider vinegar) can sometimes kill lice. I'm not convinced it will work, but might with repeated use.
What are some good topical, OTC remedies for athletes foot? I heard tea tree oil and olive oil really get the job done..
Lotrimin (clotrimazole) I recommend topical antifungal spray, powder, cream or gel, such as Clotrimazole (lotrimin, etc). Tea tree and olive oils are fine but would not treat the underlying fungal infection. The thing is even without treatment athlete foot usually resolves on its own unless you have compromised immune function due to problems like diabetes. You need to keep your feet clean and dry as much ad possible.
Lamasil. There are several otc creams and sprays for athlete's foot. They are mostly based on an antifungal medication called terbinafine. If things persist, after correct use, you may want to get it checked out by you primary care doc as it could be a different skin condition all together. As per the natural/other remedies I have also heard of vick's vaporub working, along with those you listed.
Keep it simple. Go to the drugstore....There are a million creams there.....Olive oil is more a moisturizer, tea tree oil does have antifungal properties but lotrimin, tinactin, (tolnaftate) micatin, desenex all have been proven to be effective...
Why? This combination has no direct benefit in healing a laceration.
I have a skin tag on my eyelid. I am looking for an effective home remedy. I have tried olive oil and baking soda and now, I am trying tea tree oil.
Excise. Best to have an ophthalmologist or dermatologist remove it and send it to pathology to make sure it's not a skin cancer. Done in office.
Unlikely. Unfortunately a home remedy is unlikely to have any effect. Surgical removal by a professional is straightforward and your best bet.
Eyelid lesions. First of all, I am concerned about you using stuff that may be harmful to your eye. Eyelid lesions are best addressed by a plastic surgeon or ophthalmic surgeon. To initiate the referral, you will need to see your pcp.
Go to. A plastic surgeon or occuloplastic surgeon! Don't mess around near your eye with home remedies.
Real antifungal. Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes.
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.
Terrible dandruff. Tried 3 brands of shampoos, white & apple cidar vinegar, tea tree oil. Nothings working. How can I get rid of this?
See a dermatologist. You've tried all the over-the-counter remedies with no help. I suggest you see a dermatologist to determine the cause and prescribe a medicine to help it. Could be an infection or an inflammatory condition like psoriasis.
Have a very dry scalp. Used everything from sulfur shampoo, to tea tree oil, to apple cider vinegar (looked online for solutions).doesnt seem to help.
Dry scalp. Prevent dryness (don't wash hair too often). A primary doctor or dermatologist can look for psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections if worrisome scalp symptoms. If checking for fungal infections, the dermatologist may take hair samples to culture. Doctors may also try some cortisone or Kenalog (triamcinolone) sprays to counteract dryness. Some patients put olive oil on the scalp for a while, before washing.
