Fingernail infection vinegar

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernail infection vinegar


Avatar n tn It is not as bad as before when I could barely stand, but it is still there, and the fact that the pain is still there means I still have a fungal infection. Recently, my doctor said I have a candida infection, and gave me Diflucan (flucanozole) to take for 10 days. I just finished it and there was no apparent effect. Now, I'm not so sure it is a fungal infection. Urine and blood analyses done back in August showed no bacteria in the blood or urine. Could it still be a bacterial infection?
Avatar n tn One more thing to do is, in the event of a lengthy fungal infection , to check for possible fungal infection in the blood. If that is the case, it could be dangerous. I suggest that you look into H2O2 ( Hydrogen Peroxide) therapy and research this area very carefully. Please do not follow any recommendations on this forum, including mine in this post, before doing your own research and/or checking with your health care practitioner.
Avatar f tn and yes any open wound can cause infection. keep an eye out for possible signs of infection. what did your doc. say.
Avatar n tn A couple of months ago I noticed a tenderness and mild pain under my right index fingernail. It appeared slightly discolored, but I assumed I must have banged my finger at work and that the problem was simply a bruise or blister that would go away. The pain came and went for weeks, and the left corner of the nail started to come up off the finger.
Avatar n tn The fungus can't tolerate the acidity of the vinegar, so they say. I've been using the vinegar tx for a couple months now and my nail looks better, but I can't prove it worked yet. It takes months and months of persistent care to get rid of it. I also use Honey's Vick's treatment from time to time.
Avatar m tn ok...another question, i've been reading that vinegar will make warts as well as other skin abrasions etc turn white after being applied to it for about 10 minutes due to the acid. If you do this on a bump on the skin and it does not turn white, does this mean it is most likely not a wart? I know we all have bumps on the skin... I have a tiny bump on my scrotum (when I say tiny think if mark / dot put on you from a medium point sharpee marker).
Avatar f tn I've tried Tea Tree Oil Lemon Myrtle Oil Home Freezing Kits Gel Kits Wart Stick Apple Cider Vinegar Wart remover pads Aldara Vitamin A Cream Daily multivitamin with skin booster By now I am completely terrified to shave. I DON'T scratch any itch by fear it might spread.
Avatar f tn -Smell. It is NOT a fishy odor... more like vinegar-y. It isn't overpowering but it is there, no matter how frequently I wash. I'll be fine for about an hour after a shower, but it always comes back. I obviously don't have any way to compare what other women's vg's smell like, so I have no idea if it's normal... but I feel like it isn't. -Discharge. I always have at least a little bit of cloudy looking discharge in my underwear, that dries to white.
Avatar f tn The only thing I would try at home is possibly a sitzbath in a solution of white vinegar and water. Don't try to put it up in your vagina. White vinegar has been tested scientifically and found to be both an antibacterial and antiviral, and it's pretty mild when you cut it with water, and it will not give you a chemical load.
Avatar n tn your whole point of checking yourself, as you stated, is because you are paranoid about having an infection. may actually cause yourself to have an infection by doing what you are doing. why dont you just let nature take its course??? let your body cleanse itself (as all of our bodies do naturally)? that is why we have the discharge. our discharge varies throughout the month. sometimes there is little, and sometimes a lot. during ovulation, the discharge is different too.
2143641 tn?1396681743 they are so small that when I tried to move it from the fingernail to a piece of paper I lost its sight... I went to the local doctor eventually and she only said to use vinegar... I don't think she understood which kind of fleas they are. nothing is working and I don't know what to do... do you know of any remedy? they won't drown or die easily with insecticide.
1548538 tn?1293875433 I used equal parts vinegar and water on my hair applying it with a squeeze bottle and let it sit in for 20 mins. I have long hair and strategically applied the liquid as evenly as i could everywhere. Seems like the build up on my scalp almost melted with the acidic mixture because at one point it almost felt like I had conditioner in my hair, it was so slick. The first time I did it, I found immediate results.
Avatar f tn It began about eight months ago and has gotten progressively worse. I also have a fingernail and toenail fungus. I am afraid that the fungus has moved to my skin. I went to the dermatologist for the first time yesterday and she merely gave me a prescription lotion for extremely dry skin. This actually made the stickyness worse. I applied it to my hands and it just sat on top of this film and became even more sticky.
Avatar n tn or else the infection will just redevelop. I hope this helped, and am hoping the apple cider vinegar will be a worthwhile treatment...
288415 tn?1231634102 Dr's seem to think I cause this problem by itching which causes infection which causes itchiness. HELP please? I am open to homeopathic suggestions as mainstream medicine just seems to temporarily relieve the symptoms and not cure the cause.
Avatar n tn I have been told they are a form of cellulitis and are not a fungal infection. If you do use an antifungal and they disappear its more than likely because time has simply passed and they would have dried up on there own anyway. I have noticed that popping them may cause them to become infected since an open wound in a moist sock is not always the ideal environment for healing. Whats also strange is for as deep as they can be sometimes, they don't scar my feet.
Avatar n tn To make at home just add half a cup of water and the other half vinegar.. The fungus will start to die..
Avatar n tn The doctor says wax in the ears or an ear infection that will not go away but this may be a skin ear irritation - I do have rosacia on my face. Anyone else have similar problem ? What should I use rather then steroid drops ?
Avatar n tn Your situation sounds similar to mine. I have two really large warts on my left foot that absolutely will not go away (one has been there for about 4 years, the other for 1 year). I'm on my 4th dermatologist, they've been frozen 12 times, and one has been injected with bleomycin 4 times.
Avatar n tn then I noticed the begining signs of a yeast infection (down there) and a friend told me that I could an an overgrowth of yeast in my body and that could be a sign of infection as well. So should I seek doctor advice and treatment?
Avatar n tn 4 bv will only treat bv diffrent antibiotics only work for the ailment theyre prescribed 4 however ant/bio will alot of times cause a yeast infection. they even cause a yeast infection in my mouth sometimes!
Avatar m tn My dermatologist, who seemed to know a bit about YNS, said that I should always have a course of Amoxycillin 500mg to prevent the infection spreading to my chest. Unfortunately, I am on my second chest infection of the year and now need a two week course rather than the one week which I used to have.
Avatar n tn 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water for 20 minutes before bed. Works great! Also: While you have it - Only use cold water on your hands. - Eat bland foods. - Don't touch any detergents or soaps. The Chinese believe that this is caused by a malfunction in the bodies sweat system. The sweat can't get out of your hands. It makes sense since my hands are usually hot when I get this.
Avatar n tn No one will believe my sister and she has cut her hair VERY short. Tried mayonaise, bleach, hair color, vasoline, vinegar, almost everything she can think of. I am so pleased to see that she is not the only one who has this she feels as if she is. She now has big bald spots on her head. We have been searching for help. She has been turned away from emergency rooms, hair stylists, specialists, dermatalogists, she cant take another dr telling her to go home she is crazy.
Avatar n tn i found this looking for a cure to my bumps...Scabies is a common skin infection that causes small itchy bumps and blisters due to tiny mites that burrow into the top layer of human skin to lay their eggs. The burrows sometimes appear as short, wavy, reddish, or darkened lines on the skin's surface, especially around the wrists and between the fingers. A child who has contracted scabies can also develop a bumpy red rash.
472570 tn?1274689487 I no longer use bug spray but either 50/50 water and vinegar spray or straight vinegar. It works very well and isnt toxic. I still occasionaly get bites but the vinegar eliminates them. I sometimes spray the vinegar around the bed and onto bedding before bedtime and it has helped alot. And also vacuum frequently. I have had a much easier season but have found I now am sensitive to just about everything that bites. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The derm said I had folliculits and staph infection (probably from the open wounds). She said to leave the white things alone, that they would work themselves out on their own.. Basically she told me I was like a picker to feel the need to pull the white things out.. Of course I did not believe it. She told me to mess with one like normal and let one heal on its own as an experment. It bothered me so bad to not pull those white things out to hurry the healing as i feel so gross with the sores.
