Some good info on here, thanks folks
Done lots of research & diet helps a lot foods with vitamins A C & E and zinc specifically.

Massaging the scar when healed enough for 30 seconds 3x a day or more is recommended as its breaks down the stuff that scars & promotes the good stuff that doesn't. It has done wonders for mine.

Most importantly new medical research advises a wound should be kept wet to prevent scarring, not dry as traditionally thought, although we needed scabs once to prevent infection, now we have plasters etc and so now they are what cause scarring.So keep moist.

Clean with antiseptic regularly & cover until healed enough to not scab over. This also stops discolouring which can happen with sun / daylight at a time when when the wound/scar is at its most vulnerable.

I had an open but not weeping scar and after a week keeping it clean & sterilised put honey on to keep it moist and bandaged lightly, did this for 10 days till it healed enough to start using Aloe, then another 10 days later started to use scar cream with fit C and massaged it.

Has made a big difference, I believe it will go completely as long as I am consistent enough to carry on the regime - lets hope :)

Submitted anonymously for Bacterial Vaginosis

I haven't tried any of the home remedies yet, my post is more of a question. I have been suffering from BV For several years. Every time I take antibiotics, it only goes away for about 3-4 days, and then it comes back. I am desperate to be done with it, but I am pregnant. Is the Vitamin C method safe during pregnancy? It's very uncomfortable having sex with my partner when I know I have odor. And because of the odor, I never allow him to give me oral, which I enjoy and wish I could have. Since Vitamin C is natural, would it be safe for me to try while pregnant?

Submitted anonymously for Toenail Fungus

My husband uses Gold Bold lotion for men on his 'barn itch' & says it seems to be clearing up a toe nail as well.

Submitted by Clean for Urinary Tract Infection

Ladies, practice proper hygiene, & you won't have to worry about 'remedies'. Alcohol your rectum & your buttocks, after each BM, & before sex - thoroughly.

It's E. coli, left on the rectums & buttocks of women, not their male partners penis's, that causes nearly all of sexually related UTI's.

If a woman uses just toilet paper, or just water, or even soap & water to wash her rectum & buttocks after a BM, & before sex, she is not killing E. coli. E. coli can only be killed using a germicide &/or bactericide.

The woman has E. coli on her rectum & buttocks after a BM, the penis then touches these areas during sex (though this is not necessary, E. coli has 'legs' & the friction & lubrication involved in sexual intercourse is enough to make the E. coli travel from the skin to the urethra).

Every woman should be using alcohol on her rectum, buttocks & under arms anyway, to smell good, & a low dose alcohol tonic like witch hazel, to kill germs on the skin. Women that use soap & water to clean themselves, are not as clean as women who use alcohol on parts of the body.

Submitted anonymously for Anal Warts

Hey everyone i just want to say i have had surgery to remove my warts, i have never been happier, anal warts were ruining my life and stopping me from doing the things i wanted to do as they hurt and bleed and had an odd smell to them, mine were extensive, i tried every home remedy known to man and they just spread, surgery was my only option, i have had little to no pain after surgery and i highly recommend you see a doctor rather than try all sorts of things that can damage your skin further!

Submitted by Tonia for Fever

My remedy is cut a medium not too thin slice of potato and put on the sole of your foot and put socks on. No vinegar is needed the potato draws out the heat from your body. I had a fever of 102 and it has gone down to 99.1. It's the real deal as crazy as it sounds.

Submitted anonymously for Genital Warts

I figured I would chime in when this page appeared as I searching to see if anyone else had tried the concoction I came up with to balance the whole wart treatment thing with a busy life and avoiding scorch skin with Apple Cider Vinegar. For those of you who are experiencing the burn thing, or just don't want cotton balls attached to you all the time, here's what you do. Get a bottle of pure aloe vera gel and a bottle of 100% pure tea tree oil. Take the ACV cap and pour in some of the vinegar in. Add to it one drop (you do not need more, I assure you, of tea tree oil. Then put the aloe vera gel on the tip of your finger, dip it in the vinegar and tea tree oil just a bit, and apply as you'd apply aloe to any other problem. An added bonus is that tea tree oil smells so strongly that it completely kills off the vinegar smell. My daughter has a wart on her thumb I've been trying to get rid of with conventional treatments for years, no luck. So, I found the ACV thing and it was working, but she hated being bandaged and hated the smell. So, I went ahead and took 3 natural remedies, mixed them together, created a pleasant smelling topical solution, and the wart is about to fall off. 2 days later... and I only apply it for 20-30 minutes twice a day.
I had an ex call me with a scare about genital warts on his way to the clinic once, believe me I know how freaked out you guys are. I got lucky and it was a false alarm, but I was beside myself and totally horrified at the idea of having to see my doctor about something like that and about all the other implications of it. Good luck y'all. I hope this helps

Submitted by SufferingInfant for Cold Sores

I have suffered with cold sores on and off ever since I could walk. Having been a shy and rather stressed out child, I always got them the days leading up to birthday parties or times were I knew I'd be involved with crowds. Like most chronic sufferers, I've tried everything under the sun. The best remedy I've found thus far is the prescription Valtrex as soon as you feel the tingle (I was prescribed to take two then and two more 8 hours later). That usually stops them in their tracks. When it doesn't, after having used the Valtrex, I am CONSTANTLY (hourly) applying ice, then tea tree oil, then raw honey, and oil of oregano every second cycle, with plain Vaseline before bedtime! I've found that the raw, natural, and as-unprocessed-as-possible versions of all of these work the best. My last cold sore before this regime was monsterous! So bad that I was asked if I had been punched in the mouth. I started this application ritual and my cold sore was GONE within 48 hours. Blisters, scabs, redness, everything. Gone. Another reliever that I find helps if scabs do develop is InfiniteAloe Skin Care lotion. Its certified having been made with natural ingredients and helps take the burning away. I hope this helps!!!

Submitted by Kc for Bacterial Vaginosis

Continuation from 4/15 and 4/17 posts. (I'm very thorough in all that I do, so when I noticed I left out important Info, I resubmitted). It's also important to wash your vaginal area with warm sea salt water when you bathe. I also rinse off with sea salt water after using the restroom. I use a clean squirt bottle with some sea salt added in it and top it off with very warm water, shake then cleanse my vaginal area. BV can also be on the outside of the vagina, I find this highly effective. I no longer use soaps, nor soap products made for the vagina. (Hopefully I'm done)...Gods healing in Jesus name!!
