[YEA] I would just like to post the progress I have made with my 6 year old to cure her MC with ACV. She has had them for over 10 months. The dermatologist said they would go away on their own, but could spread since she has eczema. I am a nurse and appreciate alternative or homeopathic medicine. The dermatologist told me that they could burn each one of the MC off, but it will hurt and they might come back. After hours of research, I decided to try the ACV suggesstions. I just wanted to post what I did. It took over a month, but all of the MC are gone!
1. Apply Zinc Oxide to all skin surrounding the MC to protect it from the ACV. ACV will burn and dry skin out, so keep it off healthy skin as much as possible.
2. Soak cotton ball with ACV. Cut small pieces to cover the MC. Apply soft roll gauze, then coban over the whole affected area, and leave it on over night. Take it off in the morning and shower. Be sure to use a new towel with each shower and do not rub the MC, just pat dry or air dry. I did this for 2 nights. The MC appeared to be wet and white. Some of them turned black also. I let the skin air out when no treatment was on the skin.
3. After all of the original MC were dead, there was an outbreak of all of the ones that must have been dormant. I treated them by dabbing a ACV soaked Q-tip on each one, 3 times a day, until they turned white or scabbed. I also added a cup of the ACV to the bath water once a week throughout this whole process.
4. I used Triamcinolone cream to the reddened areas of healthy skin that was damaged by the ACV.
5. After all the MC were obviously dead and dry, I began to put Vit E oil directly to the areas to help the healing process. These MC can leave awful purple scars. I did this twice a day for a week.
6. The skin was extremely dry after the treatment and my daughter wanted to scratch all of the time. After I knew the MC were all gone, I began to put Eucerin cream to the dry skin twice daily.
7. All of her MC are gone and the skin is nearly healed. I bathe her in Aveeno oatmeal bath once a week and keep the area moisturized.
This may not work for everyone, but it did for me. It took a little over a month, but I cannot see one MC anywhere. She has some scars, but I think they will fade. My advice about this treatment: be patient, do not pick them as I saw them spread when my daughter scratched, do not get ACV into open areas or on good skin, expect more to appear after the start of treatment, and be persistent.
