Submitted by Twilight for Cough

The common cold is a viral infection of your upper respiratory tract your nose and throat.A common cold is usually harmless, although it may not feel that way at the time.Preschool children are at greatest risk of frequent colds, but even healthy adults can expect to have a few colds each year.A few tips to cure cold are-:
1.Water and other fluids. Water, juice, clear broth or warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration.

2.Salt water. A saltwater gargle 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt dissolved in an 8-ounce glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat.

3.Chicken soup. Chicken soup might help relieve cold and flu symptoms in two ways.They can loosen up mucus faster and also acts as a anti-inflammatory.

4.Nasal drops.Nasal drops can relieve noseblock etc...

Submitted by Shabz for Acid Reflux

I had severe acid reflux gerd in my throat fr a year day and night it never went I went down to 6 stones coz I couldn't eat
I stopped all acid tablets and went fr a hot oil indian full body massage followed by steam
This helped relax my muscles in my body and therefore my throat
I have also stopped drinking animal based milk and drink almond milk with added vitamins
Dairy produces more mucus in stomach which brings about reflux

I've had a hi for about a week now, about two days ago I went and bought the monistat kit. I used it and it felt horrible. I felt no relief at all. Even with the itch cream it came with. Actually it seems like the itch cream made it feel worst... I tried to have sex with my husband but I sstopped because it was extremely uncomfortable and dry. And itchy. So I stopped. Took some warm water.. Stirred some salt into it. Sat on the toilet and poured it down my valine. Almost instant relief!!

Submitted anonymously for Gas

I woke suddenly in the night with severe abdominal cramping that I was sure was gas from the bean soup I ate. But, alas, 4 gasx and several of the recommended remedies here didn't even touch the pain. In the morning I saw a doc, turns out the hard core antibiotic I had taken for a recent bout of pneumonia killed off all the good bacteria in my stomach. In addition I was severely dehydrated. The two combined made me extremely constipated and caused the severe pain that I thought was gas. It took an IV bag of fluids to get things moving again and the pain was almost completely gone by the time the bag was empty. So, if you are trying these remedies and they aren't working, consider LOTS of water and check out constipation remedies. Although a trip to urgent care might be necessary to get the fluids in you faster.

My lower throat and upper chest are on fire. I ate some tums and it didn't help. Of course it seems like this is always the night before a big day, right? Anyway, I jumped on here and found several repeated remedies. I drank some pickle juice and ate a pickle, I ate a spoon full of peanut butter and I cant believe it but I feel relief! Thanks for all the recommendations.

Submitted anonymously for Ringworm

i live in Forida where getting rid of ringworm is next to impossible. I tried all 3 cremes and did not qualify for the oral because of a medical condition. I had reoccuring attacks for over a year. Starting on my arm, spreading up into my armpit and eventually into my crotch area. Nothing help...i tried everything desperately....I am now clear after doing the following. I wash all my sheets and clothes in Borax 2 times a week. I clean my skin with Palmolive dishwashing liquid and a green scrub pad. After showering i wash my skin with 91 proof alcohol. If u have to wash your crotch with it, be prepared.....the family jewels do not agree. I had a small fan near and ready. My case was severe....i work labor in a hot damp area. I hope all find what works for you. It is the first time in my life i ever had any trouble with my skin.

Submitted by Gael for Angular Cheilitis

I've had this condition for nearly 40 years. For me it is caused by stress. My body uses more Vit B at those times, so it is a lack of Vit B, in particular Vit B2, Riboflavin.

I take a Vit B complex tablet daily, and double the dose when a crack starts. Vit B is water soluble so you can't take too much of it. Your body uses what it wants then eliminates the rest.

For years I've used Lip-Sed Gel, just a tiny amount, applied twice a day on the cracked section. This makes it more comfortable, I can open my mouth, and it doesn't spread or worsen.

Within a couple of days it's all gone.

But Lip-Sed Gel was discontinued years ago, and I'm fast running out. Anyone know where I can get some, or a substitute? I'm in Australia and happy to have posted to me.

Meanwhile I have noted lots of suggestions on this website and will give them a go.

Submitted anonymously for Bladder Infections and UTIs

I have frequent UTIs due to a genetic health issue. Years ago, I would have 2-5 each year & as I've aged, I get 1 every 1-2 years.

I do not feel comfortable pumping my body full of antibiotics every time I feel ill & often times resort to herbal or natural remedies first before taking antibiotics.

My best remedy for UTIs is about 2-4 tbsp of apple cider vinegar with raw mother, mixed with about a half cup of water & about a half cup of natural, no sugar added cranberry juice (not the 'juice cocktail' kind, but 100% juice). I drink this mixture 2-3 times a day at the first sign of an infection & usually chase it with a cup of water.

In my experience, the frequency & pain of urinating drop immensely just after the first day. I continue drinking the mixture for about a week, since even when the symptoms stop, the infection is still there.

I'm not a doctor, but I know this remedy has worked for me & family & friends I have suggested it to.

Submitted by Chad for Ear Wax Removal

Well i haven't read anyone who used my strategy so i decided to share it. My ears have been bugging me for over 5 years recently and like others my mom used to pull out hard wax when i was little with tweezers! I was so fed up with it today that i decided to try something different as warm water has never worked for me and only made it worse! i used a 14 inch clear vinyl hose and with my mouth suctioned a very large amount of wax from both my ears! i tried to replicate a vacuum type suction as much as possible and couldn't believe what came out of my ears! id imagine this is very similar to what a medical doctor would use to clean out ones ear it worked awesome!
