Submitted by W for Ear Infections and Aches

For the past several months I noticed the inside of my ear smelled bad more than my right ear. It was the usual ear wax smell but increased. I never thought it was an ear infection because I didn't feel any pain or have and discharge. The only difference is when I clean my ears there is less wax in my left ear than my right.

This past week the smell changed to fishy. Still no pain or discharge. Decided to drop from hydrogen peroxide into it and it bubbled like crazy. I'm certain it's an infection. I think I may have lost about 5\\% hearing, but I can't really tell.

Not sure how I got it, but my guess is it's bacterial. Not sure if this was around the same time as the smell, but months back I jammed a q-tip in the ear (accident, of course) and lost some hearing for a few hours.

I don't want to make an appointment for a doctor visit, so I'm gonna try to use home remedies for it. I'll continue to use the HydroPero, and I read white vinegar/alcohol mix good, too.

Can I use both on a daily basis? or should I stick with one daily?

Submitted by Christine N for Muscle Cramps

The soap in bed really works do not know how but I think everyone should know of this. I put bar of soap in cotton sock, tie top upand keep near my feet in bed. Lasts for about about 4 to 6 weeks then starts drying out. Either change for new one or grate outer surface area off to refresh. Used to be terrible with toe, foot, ankle and leg cramps. From night one it worked. I am 70 years old. This morning I was sat for longish time and got toe cramps so I cut a sliver of soap of bar and put in my sock. 30 seconds later cramp gone. That quick. I have been trying to find the lady on line who posted her video telling about this. Would like to thank her so very much.

Submitted anonymously for Genital Warts

The best remedy is crushed aspirin + acv + castor oil or tea tree oil.

I tried just acv. It hurts badly. But the above ingredients can get rid of the cauliflower type warts in 2 days.

The bigger ones will takes more days. But it definitely worked for me.

Submitted by ColdSore for Cold Sores

I've had cold sores for decades. Nothing I tried worked, even the new expensive stuff. So I decided to create my own mixture. It worked. The next cold sore a few months later, it worked again. So I simplified my mixture to nail down the active ingredient. It worked again. Keep in mind, nothing worked in the past, except for these readily available inexpensive ingredients. Also, no skin break out at all. So, I'm going to pare down the recipe again for next time.

Submitted by BV CURED OVERNIGHT for Bacterial Vaginosis

Hi everyone. I just like to share how I got rid of BV. I had it for almost two months. I've seen a doctor and gave me Flagystatin but it only worked for a couple of weeks. BV came back after having my period. I tried expensive probiotics, yogurt and multivitamins but nothing worked. I also tried inserting vitamin C into the vagina. It got rid of the smell but there's still this annoying discharge. Then I read something about apple cider vinegar. What I did was I inserted a vitamin C tablet in my vagina then drink a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before going to bed. The next morning I was surprised because there's no any discharge or smell or whatsoever. I even went to the gym to workout and no discharge at all. I got cured overnight. Now I'm regularly drinking ACV diluted in 8 oz of water. I do it first thing in the morning then before going to bed. Now, I can say that I'm BV free! Also, NEVER EVER DOUCHE, girls.

P.S. Go to the doctor first before trying any home remedies to make sure that what you have is vaginitis or BV and not STD.

Submitted by C. for Abscesses and Boils

Uninsured so the ER was a last resort for me as I still owe them from my last infection. I developed a baseball sized patch of cellulitis on my bum. The inflamed area is the size of the baseball but the infection is inside a pocket the size of a ping pong ball. It has been hard to sit, walk, drive, or function at all.

I've had cellulitis before and understand how deadly it and other skin infections can be so while I totally love and support these home remedies- I cannot stress still taking antibiotics. Don't wait until you NEED them, plan ahead, and keep a round in your medicine cabinet at all times to catch it early before it spreads. They are too easy to find online without Rx.

I've had cellulitis enough already so I have learned that preparation is half the battle. Bactrim DS is your best friend. If you can't get your hands on it, the ER is better than dying of complications.

Once you've had a case you are more likely for it to recur. Be prepared!

By Day 3 of onset I knew this one was going to be a doozy. I lucked out in my area and people bring antibiotics across the border from Mexico and they are easy to find. So I looked up my local pill slinger and asked for Bactrim.

I hadn't had time to reorder online as I literally just had cellulitis in chest and used the round I had on standby so I had to put on my big girl panties and drive to an apartment complex where grown men are cruising around on bikes watching the parking lot, park by a certain color vehicle, and wait. Antibiotics are such already low priority for DEA so I wasn't too concerned.

Finally, Pedro Penicillin came walking out and we did the deed. It wasn't quite an episode of Breaking Bad but it was close enough for me. He tries to offer me other cool tic tacs he stuffed in his poopshoot across the border (hopefully not on Taco Tuesday) I assume he meant ones that make you drool all over yourself or peek out your blinds every 6 minutes. I declined and said I just have a misunderstanding with cellulitis so I'm strictly antibiotics. I told him he and his gf should save my number and call when they have another round available. So there's that. I'm coolio with the Mexican Capsule Cartel. I'm going places.

I'm on Day 8 of this thing growing out of me (but only day 4 of Bactrim) I'm thinking at this point my life is over, my bum is rotting off with necrosis, or I am dying of sepsis.

The infection always gets WORSE before it gets BETTER even with antibiotics so don't panic. It stopped spreading and is retracting slightly so I stumbled on this site to help draw out the rest. I've never had one so big and severe. I used what ingredients I had that I've read here because I cannot possibly leave my house and hobble through Safeway with a baseball protruding through my yoga pants. My luck it would burst then and there. I already think this little love spot on my bum is punishment from God for not wanting to marry my ex fiance because the s*x was bad. I'm shallow. Cellulitis cesspool and shallow. I can't chance taking this growth in public.

I have done the usual every day, soaked in the bath as I could. I started with toothpaste in the bandage. You are right that for some of us it does literally damage/burn/take off a light layer of skin but this levels the playing field a bit- one less layer for the fluid to break through to drain. It did seem to draw the pocket of fluid more to surface.

Still no drain. But this is also not your average bout.

So then I spent the entire day alternating hot baths, sitting on a heating pad watching Netflix, and mixing a salve of baking soda, garlic, and vapor rub all mixed in equal parts. Again, put on and covered with an xl bandage.

Behold, by the end of the day my little bum baaeball formed a head and has begun leaking more and more. I laid a towel under me for sleep in case I give birth in the middle of the night to what I anticipate to be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen drain out of this thing. I lay here and type this as it drains....painless thanks to 1000mg of Tylenol.

Recap:

Antibiotics & Street Cred

Salve

Heating pad

Lots of warm water/baths/compress

Tylenol

This is a very scary and painful experience but there's some great advice here so figure out which option your body responds to and good luck and good vibes.

I should have married him.

I'd have health insurance and my bum wouldn't be aesthetically ruined.

Tooth Pain after Eating Dissolved With Fresh Sage

I chewed a few leaves of fresh sage from our garden, and pressed it to the painful teeth and gums and left it there. Within 10 minutes the pain had subsided, and it totally disappeared.

I usually get tooth pain after eating, and I am searching for a long-term cure but in the meantime the fresh sage compress works as a temporary treatment.

Submitted by JesColorado for Anal Abscess

I am a 27 year old woman who has regularly has cystic issues. Dermal, ovarian, behind my eye socket, the works. Surgery for all. Three years ago, almost to date, i got my first perianal abscess. Since then, every year, almost to the date every time, I have gotten another. As someone who cannot afford insurance or a $1000 trip to the emergency room every year, I wouldn't want to go back a ain this year when my abscess start again on Monday. Not to mention the pain of having it, let alone the excruciating pain I went through last time having the I&D, I was refusing to go back to a doctor. I ended up here looking for a home cure, despite seeing the many things online saying that an abscess needs to be handled by a medical professional. I saw the recipe for a home poulpice (a term I've never heard) made of equal parts coconut oil, turmeric, and baking powder along with 10-15 drops of tea tree oil.

Desperate to not go back to a doctor, I started applying the paste within a layer of gauze while I slept from Monday to Wednesday night, along with hot Epsom baths, I tried. It felt worse, like the mix wasn't working... come Thursday morning I was in horrible pain and went to an urgent care center.

When the doctor came in, I was in tears afraid of having another painful I&D, she went to look and see, and immediately mentioned that it looked as if it would pop on its own. I was ecstatic. She prescribed my augmentin for 10 days and after hearing of the poulpice I'd neen using, as as she thinks that it was working because after 4 days, it should have been ripe. She sent me home and said to come back if it got worse.

That night, I applied the same mixture, woke up to pee, in terrible pain (to where just sitting on the toilet had me in tears), removed the poulpice and went back to sleep with a maxipad on. When I woke up in the morning, I sat up with almost no pain. The abscess had drained on its own while I slept.

I'm not saying to ignore medical attention, especially since something home treated can end up worse, however for those who have done this numerous times, gone through so much pain from reoccurring abscesses, the recipe recommended further back, it worked for me and couldn't be more appreciative.

Though it's drained mostly, I am still applying the poulpice at night, and we'll as applying hot compresses so help. I also take a hot sitz bath (2 cup Epsom salt in hot water) after every bowel movement, when I can.

The burn described really wasn't anything compared to the abscess pain as described. That did scare me a bit, but it wasn't the pain I thought it to be.

The original recipe I saw was 3 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons turmeric powder, 2 tablespoons baking POWDER (not soda) and 10-15 drops of tea tree oil. I never used that much, as it was unnecessary for one night and the remaining paste would dry and drain literally EVERYTHING. I just made a small batch every night of equal parts and wrapped it in a single layer of gauze, almost like a taco. I put it directly against the abscess with extra gauze padding outside to keep in, and then put in a heavy duty maxipad, just in case, and left in while I slept.

It got so much worse before it was better. Again, I will say don't avoid medical attention, even I paid to see a doctor, but it worked for me. I hope this helps everyone else too!

Submitted by Angel for Chapped Lips
