I was really excited to try ACV and used organic with "the mother". I used it for a month, diluted 50/50 2-3 times a day. I thought it was making it worse before better.. but in truth it didn't really seem to help. I'm taking ACV tablets now just in case, but as I wasn't seeing any improvements with ACV and feel it became much worse after I started (and settled down when I stopped), it doesn't seem to be for me. Too bad!!! I have recurring PD and am for the first time trying to heal it without using Doxy antibiotics. It's been 2 months.. doesn't seem to be getting better or worse at this stage. Zinc cream possibly is helping (too soon to tell)!
