I knew the ACV and Vit C would work, but I doubted the quickness of the relief. I had to do something though for my daughter. She is 4 years old and was in incredible pain. It took days to realize it was a UTI because she wasn't describing it well and I thought it was heat rash on her butt or a rash from not wiping right. She did have some diaper rash looking redness.

We kept putting desenex on her, then she started to apply it to her urethral opening... Which made me wonder if that was where the pain was or if she, but I still didn't know if maybe it was yeast or bladder and that was only this morning... So it took days to realize what was going on. By the fourth day, today, she was crying and squirming. I questioned her and found that it hurts when she pees... then I knew for sure.

I came here because antibiotics are worse than the illness usually and I knew I could at least get some healing started if I needed to go to a dr.

I gave her 2 tbsps ACV in 12 oz distilled water sweetened with 2 packs of stevia. SHE CRIED AND SCREAMED bout the TASTE!!!! I had to force her sip by sip to drink it! Many tears! LOL... But honestly, 20 minutes later she had stopped crying! She is now laughing and wants her nap! I also gave her 2 Vit C pills because she really only drank half the nasty concoction. I'll write again to update since its really only been 30-40 minutes.
