Submitted anonymously for Cold Sores

I just had a the biggest cold sore of my entire life. It must have been the size of a dime. I literally got rid of it in 24 hours.

Wait until it stops tingling. Meaning its at its full growth.

Pop it by gently irritating the skin with a qtip soaked in nail polish remover or alcohol (some people use a sterile pin)

Be sure not to get the juice anywhere else or it could start another cold sore easily.

This part is gross but I actually used a sterile tweezer to peel the first layer of the skin open and peel it away from the blister. leaving a gapping wound.

Now if you dont kill all the virus it will just close up and form another blister.

cover the open wound with salt and add a drop of peroxide. It will form a huge bubbly mountain ontop of the sore, It will burn like hell. Eventually it will dry up and become crusty salt. 1 hour

this point! NO MORE BLISTER! but now you have a gaping wound. This is good though, now time to clean with more peroxide, and use neosporin religiously. every 30 minutes reapply the neosporin. You are simply bringing the wound to scab phase and then POOF. GONE!

My scab was nice and skin toned, even though there was still some swelling I could have left the house on day 2 with the skin colored scab and felt comfortable. All of day 3, just apply apply apply neosporine.

Submitted anonymously for MRSA

I was getting huge mrsa boils one after another until...The doctor at emergency gave me a script for a fungal ointment to use in your nose for 2 weeks at a time. Staph/MRSA lives in your nose so this helps keep the infection to a dull roar. Also, eating Raisins everyday. Havent had a outbreak in 2 years...Cheers Serene

Submitted anonymously for Hemorrhoids

anyone have recommendations for internal, bleeding and very painful piles? I'm also crying in pain on the toilet and wait days before having a bowel movement just to spare myself the pain.

Suppositories and witch hazel have not been much help.

Submitted by Amanda for Chigger Bites

This may sound a bit weird but putting clear nail polish on the bites will dry it right up. works like a charm. good luck everyone....

Submitted by Oscar's mom for Acid Reflux

Hi everyone
Since my last post I have found out that potato juice works wonders for helping with the stomach alcers and acid reflux.
Wash the potato well and juice it with the skin on .drink right away for its benefits,
Hope that helps.

Plantar Warts

I just commented on a post about this where the guy used dessicated liver tablets to get rid of his warts. Not sure if this would work for plantar warts or not, but I'd think it would help at least!

Anyway, my regimen for getting rid of plantar warts COMPLETELY is

1. Epsom Salt soaks
2. Duct Tape covering the wart 24/7
3. Salicylic Acid pads (the kind that put pressure around the wart/corn pushing it out of the foot and into the acid)

Those are the basics... oh and persistence!

I detailed my experience with getting rid of my deep, stubborn plantar wart completely in just a few weeks using this method and have before and after photos on a blogger page if interested.

Submitted by Sunnygirl for Skin Tags

I had what I think was a large skin tag the size of a raisin. It had a stalk and was flesh colored with no pain. I tried a tiny rubber band wrapped around it twice. It turned red, not black and let out mostly clear liquid with a little blood. I changed the covering twice a day for about three days. Then I tied it off tighter with dental floss. Same thing. Red, not black and leaking liquid. Finally, after another three days, I iced it for a minute and cut it off. It bled a lot. I used 4 or 5 light day pads and finally a gauze and heavy pad wrapped with an ace bandage overnight. I should have done that sooner to stop the bleeding. In the morning I removed the gauze and put on antiseptic cream with a bandage. The spot is sore. Will update if there is more to this story.

Submitted by I have herpes, herpes don't have me for Genital Herpes

I was officially diagnosed with hsv 1 and 2 in 2013 but I'm pretty sure I contracted the disease in 2012. When I first found out, I was hurt and scared ONLY because it was foreign to me but once i educated myself as much as possible...i felt better. I prayed and moved on. To be honest, sometimes I forget I even have it bc it doesn't happen frequently. And when it does occur, I don't get sad or mad.. i just take care of it. I had an OB in jan on this yr...i haven't had another until now and that's bc I have been stressing a lot. I take lysine and zinc. I NEVER taken Valtrex or any other med related to it bc i rather allow my immune system to do exactly what it's designed to do...and to help it... i take lysine and zinc. I also use tee tree oil ...i also crush zine and lysine pills and make a paste then apply...by the next day total improvement. By the 3rd day everything is almost normal. I only had problems urinating once and that's bc an OB occurred in a different spot on my vag and it was hard to pass urine...other than that...the location of my usual OB is at the bottom of vag kinda at beginning of butt. ..and when it comes it's only a little scratch or bump...nev r a cluster of blisters...i do get the headaches and that for me is the most annoying thing...more annoying to me than the OB...of course the itching is present but I just apply the oil and paste and it goes away. I do date I do live my life bc life goes on. I've never infected anyone ..since I was diagnosed. ...i just make sure to not have any sexual contact during that time. It's the stigma that makes this disease bad. Dont feed into it. Your life can be just as normal. Dont get upset Wth yourself. ..it'll be ok!

Submitted by Jenn for Head Lice

I found a very cheap and easy way to rid any hair of lice. I looked and try many different things before I came up with this. Roughly a cup of conditioner and a few cap fulls of vinegar, leave it on for a half-hour, rinse with hot water and comb with lice comb. Do that twice-three times and all should be good.

Submitted anonymously for Cold Sores

I use to get cold sores frequently (6-10 per year). It is very frustrating and depressing. I even used prescription meds and they had varying levels of success from okay to no help at all. I also tried the L-Lysine diet with no success. I've tried various ways of modifying my diet over the years with no success. However, over the last year i've had very few outbreaks and (knock on wood) in the last 4-5 month period i've had no outbreak which is a miracle for me. When i was younger i had outbreaks 1-2 times per year. As i finished university and moved into the work world the outbreaks increased almost exponentially. I thought about the differences in my diet. I did't consume much milk when i was growing up. Perhaps a litre a week on average. As an adult my dairy consumption skyrocketed. Milk (2%) became my main beverage source. 6-8 litres a week, along with yogurt, ice cream, cheese and i was also consuming whey protein powders. Earlier this year i virtually eliminated milk and yogurt from my diet. I now consume maybe 500ml of milk per week. No yogurt. But i started drinking about a litre of kelfir per week. So as you can see it's not exactly a controlled experiment. Not sure what the determining factor is but it seems to be working so i'm going to continue. Just wanted to through this out there for others if they want to try. I constantly see home/scientific remedies advocating for the consumption of lots of dairy (L-Lysine) as a preventative. I wonder if all the antibiotics and hormones that are given to cows to promote milk production might be part of the issue. Don't know. All i know is after cutting down on milk and drinking plain o water it seems to be helping. Cheers!
