  • YOu can was in Buttermilk. or take vinegar baths.
    Draw a tub of water deep enough to cover the ares infected add about 1/4 cup of vinegar to the water. It smells...but it works. Do not use soap...just sit..(vinegar & water only) Then you can pour buttermilk on a wash cloth and 'press' it to the infected instantly soothes. Its a natural solution so it will take longer than prescriptions but its sooo very nice.
    I hope you feel better soon.

  • urinary infections? I've only heard of cranberry juice. don't know if it'd work but maybe drink a lot of water to flush out your kidneys, urethra, and bladder?

    here on cm walgreen's is advertising a clinic, take care clinic, plus shoprite supermarkets have some clinics in some of their stores. some cvs stores have clinics.

    be careful, it's best to get this taken care of sooner and get healthy instead of later and be sick until next spring.

  • cranberry juice is for urinary tract infection. if you have a vaginal infection that is NOT a yeast infection the only remedy is to see a doctor & get treated with a prescription. there's nothing you can do on your own.

  • Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic. It works best topically so you may have to swab it into yourself. You can get it at most health food stores. Ask the people who work there what a good brand is because the quality can vary.
