Submitted by Chelly for Fingernail Fungus

Clorox mixed with bleach, olive oil mixed with salt, and Vick's with a bandage over night will kill your fungus immediately! Cut the nail back to your most clearest part of your nail.If you experience pain while trimming, stop. Do these processes with out the trim, but longer. I,trimmed my nail back to the newgrowth. And because the nail had a thick fungus, I couldn't feel a thing.Also, I feel that it killed my fungus immediately because I had cut the nail off top of. The fungus.Once I put the Clorox on the fungus, I watched the fungus immediately get missing. Using a medicine cup, fill it under 15ml and add 3 table spoons of salt. Keep this solution wrapped up so you can dip your finger for 15 min or longer a day. Do that twice a day. Take another medicine cup a and pour a teaspoon of bleach mixed with Clorox in in. It's best to mix it by pouring Clorox over bleach that's already in a jug. You don't have to mix a lot. Then, pour a teaspoon or less, only enough to soak a q-tip then clean the nail with it. You will see the yellow turn normal as you keep repeating this routine. After you soak,rinse your hand with cool water. Pat it dry, and cover your entire nail with Vick's and bandage it. Sleep with it overnight and rinse it in the morning and follow the same steps!these same products help your feet as well. Good luck with this nasty bed.

Submitted by Anon for Anal Abscess

I can highly recommend using Magnesium Sulphate paste - available in your local pharmacy - and then after applying it liberally to the abscess, covering it with a plaster. I endured tremendous pain for a few days until it became too painful to sit down for any length of time, and even finding a comfortable sleeping position was close to agony. I read some advice on this website from other users who had used Magnesium Sulphate with success, and I decided to follow their advice (having tried many other remedies, tooth-paste etc... with no success). Applying the paste worked for me, so I can definitely vouch for it. It took about a day to for it to work properly, and at night the abscess eventually began to drain, followed by immediate relief. In any case, it worked for me, and I sincerely hope it works for anyone with the same pain!

Aveeno oat oil moisturiser cream. In fact all aveeno products are superb at relieving the itch, dry skin. Also try adding oats to your bath water, let them soak in for a few minutes before you enter the bath. This also works. You can buy aveeno products in all good supermarkets, health shops.

Submitted by Olivia for Genital Herpes

Have a bottle of cool water near the bathroom. Poor it on you as you peee, it takes the pain away from the hot urine pain on the blisters. Also keep the area dry. I use a separate small towel to dry gently after a shower then also try a hair dryer (use the cool air option). Of course the cotton panties. Hope this helps

Submitted by Shannon for Dry Socket

Here's what worked for me after a double wisdom tooth extraction(upper left, lower right)

1. Swimmers ear drops.

2. I couldn't find clove oil so I got the oral pain kit from Walgreens with benzocaine

If you're like me the jaw is killing you, your ear is going to explode and your neck feels like someone pushed a pencil down the side of it. Are you nodding? If you are then try this.

The swimmer's ear is straight up 95\\% rubbing alcohol and 5\\% water a few drops and the jaw will relax and the ear will say ahhh.

Clove Oil must be like gold here in Texas because after 3 pharmacies there was none to be found. Next best thing, the toothpaste aisle of the Walgreens Oral Pain kit with benzocaine oil. And wow the difference. It doesn't last for ever but will give you a few hours of relief. (less if you drink a lot of liquids) I took it and fell asleep for 2 hours woke up for the 1st time in months with no pain.

* Extraction date - one week ago.

* Pain started - 3 days post extraction

* Dentist re-vist - 1 week after extraction.

* Dentist recommendation - Clean the area, a pat on my head and the "take 2 ibuprofen and call me in the morning"

Tips - 1. For anyone else suffering with the aftermath of extraction, Tylenol and ibuprofen does not TOUCH this pain. Alieve, sort of if you want to take it every hour and kill your stomach, trading one pain for another.

2. If your pharmacy doesn't have clove oil try a vitamin store or an ethnic store. The Mexican grocery stores here in Texas sells clove oil. If you can't find it, benzocaine, has to be the next best thing.

3. Pray... a lot!

Submitted by James for Anal Abscess

For anyone reading this, I hope this helps.

I've struggled with diverticulitis and a reoccurring anal abscess that has nearly immobilized me at times. more than anything else, i have used PURE GRAPE JUICE with the best results. i use RW Knudsen, and i suggest you avoid anything with added sugar.... i use 'Just Concord' and for the second time, I have seen DRASTIC changes within 12 hours of drinking 16-24 oz of pure grape juice before bed. last night I was in searing pain, and I drank about three medium-sized glasses over an hour time before bed. i woke up with what felt like a LOT more pain and activity, but then in 'broke' this morning.

like everything, look into it yourself.. but there seems to be a huge amount of study on how grape juice cleanses/purifies the soft membrane walls of our body. nature is so cool.

i can't tell you enough how amazing this stuff is. i highly suggest CONCORD juice, and in it's purest form.

i've been a professional cook most of my life-- so i've been burned/cut a lot... i would never wish this kind of pain on my worst enemy. to anyone reading this, i sincerely wish you relief.

Submitted by Lilly for Headaches

In the recent years i've become an avid chilli fan and what i noticed is that i'd crave chilli when i'm experiencing a headache. I soon realised that a chilli or two will partially or completely get rid of my headache in only a few minutes. My saviour for when headache tablets don't work on me. I usually eat whole pickled chilli's and they work just great but i'm sure all types of chilli's or chilli sauces with a bit of kick will work. It's like magic!

Submitted by Experimenting for Herpes

Diagnosed Herpes Hsv1/2 Feb. 2016, first genital sore July 19th 2017, I drink coffee and I try to stay away from sweets

My work allows me to excersise on a daily basis plus I exercise on my two days off.

I have for years eaten yogurt, bananas, grapes

and also (peanut butter crackers which is not good for Herpes).

No stress at this time.

I was also diagnosed with ( bacterial vaginosis , common infection, too much douching etc...) in 2015, treatments included pills, creams and finally

OB said, you will have to use boric acid vaginal suppositories the rest of your life because of chronic infections.

I recently tapered off of the suppositories a few weeks ago, June 2017 normally 2/3 times a week prescribed

at bedtime. I don't know if this was keeping the virus suppressed.

HSV1

no outbreaks, stay out of sun and also bad upset stomach will bring on a cold sore.

I have used bleach and abreva to dry up the sores, it works. I've had ob off and on for years, didn't realize hsv1

HSV 2

Experimenting now abreva, of course boric acid 600 mg suppository,

Checking out:

1 tannic acid, salicylic acid combined with boric acid in a alcohol liquid carrier

2. Unsea

3. Lysine

Submitted by Kimberly S. for Scalp Psoriasis

Don't shampoo everyday. It took me a few years to except this suggestion given to me by my hairdresser. I shampoo with a Tea Tree shampoo, any natural brand works, three times a week. I wash with warm water and conditioner(Jason brand, but natural brand will work here too) everyday. This is an inexpensive treatment so it is worth trying! I have spent thousands of dollars on UV treatments, medications prescribed by my dermatologist, special shampoos only available through my dermatologist; to figure out that shampooing too much just strips the oils that you need. This is a very frustrating condition and is more frustrating when you spend a lot of money on treatments that are temporary. I hope this helps other people.

Submitted by Barbara for Ringworm

I used Signature Care brand anti-fungal Athlete's Foot Cream with Clotrimazone purchased at Safeway for less than half the price of the other anti-fungal creams. On the back of the box, it says cures athlete foot, ringworm and jock itch. I used it for a week, and the ringworm was gone. This cream is made by Bayer.
