[YEA] I'm a 31 year old white male, 135 lbs. , 5'7". I had a hemorrhoid for about 2 years. Tried several creams. Really like wiping with Desitin diaper rash cream (the generic).
I came to this site and saw all the reviews, over a hundred I think, for ACV for hemorrhoids. After reading the reviews, I rushed to the grocery store in the middle of the night, bought some ACV for about $6, and cotton balls and bandaids. I took a bath with about a cup of ACV in it, stayed in it for at least half an hour.
Then I did what I really think cured it...I soaked a cotton ball in ACV, then taped it to my hemorrhoid with a bandaid or two. Then I put boxers on, sat on it and soon went to bed (leaving it on).
The next day, I checked my roid, and I swore it was half the size (it had been the size of a kidney bean for 2 yrs).
I still wasn't sure, but I felt optimistic. It might've been my imagination, but in 2 years you get pretty familiar with the size of your hemorrhoid.
Anyway, I continued, doing it no more than twice a day, maybe 3 times (I doubt it would go away faster if the applications were more frequent.. Maybe I only needed to do it once). So within 3 or 4 days, the hemmorhoid was completely gone. Then I stopped doing the cottonball thing.
That was in April of 2012, and now it's December 2012. So 7 months with no return of the hemorrhoid.
This has honestly changed an entire outlook in my mind. If I suffered for 2 years with no help from conventional medicine, then I find the wisdom in a crowd on the internet, and heal myself in a few days with $6, with vinegar! , what else am I missing!! ??
So after this cure, I sought youtube videos on hemorrhoids, people trying to peddle their hemorrhoid products, and I wrote comments on the videos spreading the word. "All you need is apple cider vinegar, it'll be gone a few days. Don't spend your money! "
I think white vinegar would probably work too. Most people have vinegar already in their house.
To be honest, after this cure, my trust in conventional medicine, in doctors, has taken a nose-dive. How many people suffer from hemorrhoids, go to their doctors, and their clumsy doctors don't even know about this?
