Shingles virus is a contagious skin rash. There are lots of natural remedies that could help cure the Shingles that is cause by a virus that called the Varicella Zoaster. For bathing, people could try oatmeal bath. Surely, effective.

Submitted by Brian for Chapped Lips

I have had chapped, red, dry lips that have been hurting for a while. I went on a lot of websites, couldn't find the same thing. So, my Dad bought me Burt's Bees Ultra Moisturizing lip treatment. It comes in a tube. Put on pure petrolatum jelly, let it sit on you lips for 20 minutes, and the put on the Burt's Bees lip moisturizer. The moisturizer has everything, lanolin, castor oil, beeswax, honey... And after you put on the petrolatum jelly and lip moisturizer, you will feel GREAT! Hope I helped.

Submitted by Jim for Vertigo

This seemed to work for me: Ginger (about the length of your finger) and 3 slice of garlic mashed together. Boil. Drink it warm twice daily.

Submitted by Susan for Blood Pressure

First time for me to get high blood pressure and it's no fun at all. I find meditation to bring it down significantly also warm bath and deep slow breathing. And chamomile tea.

Submitted by Varendra for Burns on Hand

The best way that I know of is to run cold water at least 30 seconds till it hurts, then apply toothpaste. Endure the pain for three min. And you will feel so much better.

Submitted by M for Anal Abscess

Hi there,

(apologies moderators for previous post, I was typing to see how this forum worked..)

I just wanted to say a big thankyou to everyone who has posted in this forum for helping me, for now, alleviate this awful thing. Am a 30yr old male who didn't expect it!

I read a lot on this forum about how tumeric, tea tree oil, epsom salts, baking soda and vinegar can help as anal abscess and I just wanted to share my experience with everyone else and encourage them to try these ideas before seeking surgery.

Need to say there's nothing conclusive here, just my experience:

About a week ago I felt something weird down near where my ass cheeks meet my thigh and thought nothing of it, the next day it was definitely something that was the size of maybe the end of my thumb.

I googled this and concluded (from what info was available) that I had a perennial abscess and read a lot of horror stories about (not so much) having it lanced but then having it packed etc and the pain involved. I thought of trying anyyythinggg else than that, and though have never tried 'natural' remedies came across this forum. Am an advocate for neither natural or 'modern' surgery - just wanted to avoid pain/suffering etc!!

So googled and came across this forum and found suggestions for remedies that essentially fell into two camps: a tumeric and tea tree oil (maybe with water) mixture and an apple cider vinegar and baking soda mixture. In addition to this epsom salt baths were recommended.

For the record at this point it was becoming painful - like from a 'fun' lump to something that was causing proper, not excruciating but potentially, pain. Like pulling a nose hair out!

First night after reading I tried mixing what I could find close by locally in my town - tea tree oil and baking soda (even though this specific combination was not recommended per se) and to be honest not sure it did much, or help swelling reside at all. To be honest also a problem is it didn't make a great 'paste' and felt more like trying to stick a grainy gel to my skin.

Next day I went out to find tumeric and mixed it with the tea tree oil. Not sure if 1:1 ratio or what, but kept adding either til it formed a smooth paste - smooth enough to apply to the area and have it stick like a regular cream. Anyway I put it on without a dressing (not to go into too much detail but taping a dressing to this area would have meant a lot of pubic hair pain when pulling it off) and followed what another posted had said of pulling on tight boxer briefs after. I was amazed how little of it went onto the boxer briefs, it stuck to the area great.

Anyway after about 8 hours I went to the bathroom and the abscess felt very 'tender' eg ready to burst, like a childhood pimple ready to pop.

I don't know why but I decided to apply some white wine vinegar I had bought (couldn't find the recommended apple cider) to the area and when I pulled the cotton wool ball I'd put the vinegar on off the area....it was suddenly seeping puss. Yes disgusting, but such a relief. I have to say though, in the most minor of ways, like a tiny pinprick.

So because I didn't think some others went enough in depth: it absolutely seeped puss (like small-medium sized globules on paper towels) at a regular rate for about 20minutes then lessened. I then thought I'd listen to others on this forum and got straight into a hot bath where it appeared to drain more but at a lesser rate. At a point I decided that further squeezing etc could cause more harm than good.

Overnight some more drained but nothing to write home about.

I should also add in its most painful stage I took some nurofen painkillers and they probably helped me through the worst of it! Highly recommended.

Since then (48hrs ago) I've been going about my day to day and its getting better and better. Gone from what was at its peak golf ball sized to now like a grape. I expect this to continue.

What I don't know:

1. Is it entirely fixed? I don't know, all I can say is its gone from 100% red alert to feeling like a pimple on my ass! I'll keep updating if interested. I've read another great post about how they felt there was something deeper underneath, and I do to a degree feel that still - there is still a pocket there that is decreasing but still exists. So I can't at all say I'm out of the woods - but I'm feeling 10000% better.

2. What did the job - vinegar, tumeric, tea tree oil, epsom or what? My honest opinon is that it was the tea tree oil and tumeric mixture that did it for me - just my opinion but its what happened. I think a rub of vinegar afterwards helped bring it from 99.9% burst to 100% burst, but maybe a rub of water would have done the same. But definitely the tumeric and tea tree oil is my recommendation.

Should also add that after bursting I tried re-applying tumeric and tea tree oil mixture but because after bursting the 'hole' is very sensitive it stung really bad. So i've switched to a combination of this (can't post links, in UK if you google this..)

Boots Tea Tree Cream - 30ml 4.39

Tea tree oil cream, mixed on about 1:1 with tumeric (plus a bit of water to make up the difference, do it in half teaspoons) and have found over last 24 hours it is still helping to pro-actively reduce the swelling down to what is now pea sized. Also mixing tumeric with a cream makes it FAR easier to apply than other methods. This gets important when its poultice vs cream in a difficult area.

Sorry for that really lengthy post but the point is that a few days ago I was horrified of that thing on my butt, and from following directions on this page (no easy answers...) it has gone from 100% red alert to pretty much nothing and I hope it continues til its nothing.

If you're reading this page for the first time please please please consider giving these ideas a go before going for that painful surgery that I've (til this point, fingers crossed) only read about!

Happy to answer any queries...

Submitted anonymously for Genital Warts

I'm 18 years old female away for school. And found out I had Genital warts about a month and a half ago. I had only been with one guy before I noticed the cluster of warts. I went to Planned Parenthood to find out forsure . And they did the acid treatment on them. (Which burned like hell.) The doctor told me to come back in 2 weeks when it's fully healed. The treatment was 98$. 2 weeks later the warts progressed and more came.( and I mean MORE.) I was so disgusted. I went for a 2nd treatment and paid another 98$. But only one little part of the mother wart on me fell off. I'm a broke college student who doesn't have The money to keep coming in for treatments and every other week getting treated is taking to longtime these warts. I'm so glad I'm came across this website. And I took everyone's advice on the ACV treatment, but I added my own mix with crushed ASPRIN and a little TEA TREE OIL inside. The first day of the ACV treatment I left it on for 3 hours. WARNING yes it does burn but after 15 minutes of it i got used to it. The next morning I could see the little warts had already turned real black. So The second day I did it for another 3 hours. And Later on that day before I went to bed I did it for a hour and 30 min. Today is my third day , and I woke up this morning and whiped down there and seen a bunch of my warts on the toilet paper. I took a mirror too see my progress down there , and I can already see where the warts are completely gone!! And let me tell you .. I have a bunch of them. And to see this treatment actually working, I'm so thankful. I've also been taking a lot of vitamins and also starting to workout every night again before I started school. I'm quiting drinking alcohol and smoking marryjane. I'm getting my immune system up and healthy again. So I hopefully won't have a outbreaks of warts again for awhile and I can feel comfortable again with my supporting Boyfriend. SO IF YOU WANT THOSE UGLY WARTS GONE.. TRY MY TREATMENT! It worked for me! :)
