To make a long story short, I was so sick, fatigued, couldn't eat, weak, yeast infections that wouldn't go away, hard time seeing, and my hands looked like a dishwasher in the army. My dr's app't was in a month, couldn't get me in earlier, My mamogram app't in 2 days. Talked my dr. into letting me get my lab results done when I was in the hospital for my mamo. He called the lab and told them what to do. While I am in the mamo, a nurse said to come to the dr's office immediately after. His office was in the hospital. I went and my blood sugars were...600!!!!!!! He imediately put me in the hospital and gave me insulin. I was really sick and dehydrated. Losing vision too. We cleaned the yeast area with vinegar and water. GONE. But it came back a couple times and I used the vinegar and water doush and just squirted it all around and worked it in with my hands. (sitting on the potty) He said to not use face cloths as that will irritate it and it'll never go away. I still do that. Go to the dollar store and get vinegar and water doush and just squirt it all over "down there" and use your hands to gently rub it in. It will go away, I'm sure. Keeps the bugs away. Cost is $1.50. Try it. Nothing to lose.

I tried to look up this poster and found nothing. Is this post for real? It sounds very fishy. Sorry, but plain vinegar won't cure yeast permanently to say nothing of sickness, fatigue, weakness, chapped hands, vision problems, dehydration, and diabetes. You say "nothing to lose" by spending only $1.50 for a cheap vinegar "cure". How about your vision, and your life?
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

Hi Flute welcome back. I re-read the post as well and she is also saying with the Drs douse was "GONE" then next to it she says it came back a few more times. Her later comments was "I still do this and it will go away, I'm sure". Flute Did you know it also keeps "the bugs away"? What is that suppose to mean?

Of course the yeast infection will keep coming back because her sugars aren't controlled.

There was another post with someone else involving the same situation and the end result is to control the diabetes to help stop the yeast infections.

This poster has no clue what they are talking about.A tip I will not use even if it is low cost.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.

It just looks to me like they were saying that when they went to the hospital they were shown the vinegar trick, which cleared up the yeast infection. Even though it came back after that the symptoms were alleviated each time she used it. I didn't think she was claiming it helped all her problems, just that particular one.
auriga1 replied to rohvannyn's response:
Yes, that is what I gleaned from her post. Vinegar is one of the ingredients in store-bought douches. As my OB/GYN stated, "the vaginal canal is actually a natural self-cleaning oven. You really should not douche. I believe (only my humble opinion) is that her sugars are out of control causing this yeast infection to be reoccurring. She needs to get her sugars under control and she won't be needing to use the vinegar all the time.
