Hydrogen Peroxide Skin Burn

I burned myself with the FGHP on my finger. My finger swelled so that I could not bend it at the joint, turned white and felt like a flame burn.

After going online to look for a remedy, I saw a comment by a nurse to rinse in salt water. I actually put a tablespoon of salt in a cup of warm water to dissolve it and let my finger soak for 10 minutes. The pain, swelling, and most of the white skin was gone.

Sickle Cell Disease

Posted by Al (Horn Lake, Ms) on 02/24/2010

Can Sickle Cell Disease be treated with Hydrogen Peroxide? We have a young friend who gets terrible episodes of the disease. We read she is lacking oxygen, wouldn't HP help?

Any other helps you know of?

Hi Al from Horn Lake,

I know it's frustrating not to get answers sometimes. Apparently none of the readers know of a remedy for sickle cell disease, perhaps you can post to Ted directly. If you do find a solution that can help people, please post for others the information you acquire, Peace, Rena.

Sinus Issues

Posted by Jay (Novi, Mi) on 03/30/2010

My 11 year old has had a stuffy nose since september- I am not sure what she is allergic to. She did not have a history of allergies. But I want to relieve her stuffy nose- I have been giving her upto 2 tbsp acv with honey in 8 oz water the last couple of days. Can I do the H2O2 tx for her stuffy nose- How would I do it- Is it safe to use it on a 11 year old-Also I read about using H2O2 in a humidifier. How would I do that. Thanks

Hi Jay,

Both my 11 year old and 13 year old did it quite successfully while we were doing it and that was over a year ago at this point. One other thing I would inquire about is, how much dairy does she eat? That could be the culprit. If she does eat dairy, try cutting that out and for certain you will see a big change. As for H2O2 in a humidifier, I don't know about that but if you have read about it and it sounds like something viable, then go for it. I always read and study and if it feels right, I give it a go and see what the results are. Honestly, it's all a big experiment! Life, sheesh...

Thanks a lot for your response. I will try- what is the dosing ?

Replied by Lisa

Hi Jay,

Well, it was quite simple. I just put a little H2O2 in a very small container, dipped the q-tip in it so it was wet and then put it in my nostril but pretty far up. A lot of sneezing will then occur but you will feel all the mucus immediately loosen. And as I said, for myself it was like a faucet had been turned on. My kids had the same experience. I was with them as they did it but they used the q-tip themselves after I instructed them what to do. I would just explain to your daughter what to expect before hand. Take care, Lisa

Using three to five drops 35% food grade from Richards Whole foods in my morning water during my cleanse, Hydrogen peroxide seems to be clearing up my 2 month long sinus infection. Feeling less fatigue. Apple Cider Vinegar and H2O2 are my new best friends. NO Negative side effects at all. Using it in my bath next.

i am new to h2o2 use. my best friend is getting them iv for post cancer treatment . i was sick with chills fever stopped up nose. went to her dr. and he gave me a nebulizer treatment with h2o2. i shared with him that my daughter suffers with sinus issues on a regular basis she has a heart condition that if she takes over the counter meds. she gets heart palpitations. it then gets bad enough that she ends up at dr. getting a steroid shot. i was told i could tell her to do a nebulizer treatment of h2o2 at the onset of sinus problem.

i have a nebulizer but not sure what strength h2o2 food grade to buy and how much to put in and do i dilute it in water and what kind? also if you have any other suggestions in the way of preventative for her it would be appreciated

Concerning the use of H202 in a nebulizer, caution must be exercised at all costs. From what I have read it appears that .50 % H202 mixed with saline solution is the proper ratio. I would also recommend that you only use FG H202 for this method.

Although the benefits of using H202 are well documented, its serious stuff and needs to be respected accordingly. Perhaps you should consult the doctor whom initially gave you the treatment as well.

Skin Cancer

I have had a basil cell carcinoma on my back for about a year.

It got a little bigger and I decided to get rid of it.

I have been using food grade h2o2 Hydrogen Peroxide (25-35%)

It burns but works great. Just use a cue tip dip it into the h2o2 and it burns the top layers of over a few weeks. It's better than the doctor and cost's about $1.00 worth of the food grade peroxide.

I will tolerate a little pain, no pain no gain.

I made the mistake of using fingernail polish that contained those cute little sparkles of glitter. Developed melanoma under both big toe nails. The doctors froze it, it came back, and I almost lost my toenails. I remembered reading about H202 and tried it. Soaked cotton balls, placed them on my toenails overnight wrapped in plastic wrap. YAHOO! Melanoma GONE! And my toenails grew back normal. Readers, if something you read sounds feasible, try it. Always use caution but try anything that has worked for others. Sadly our government and the powers that be are not for our health. They want us sick for that almighty dollar. Thank this site for being free and your ability to read for yourself.

Skin Issues

Posted by R (Denver, Co) on 05/27/2010

My 72 year old grandpa has a spot on his leg that is about the size of a quarter, its a dark crusty, scab looking thing. When he pushes on it, there is a small amount of clear fluid that comes from it. He says it feels slightly spongy. The skin surrounding it is red and looks infected. I took a q-tip and H2o2 and tried cleaning it. It instantly fizzed up. He says it doesnt hurt him. The more I cleaned it some of the 'scab' came off in little pieces. He is very stubborn and doesnt want to go in. If you could give me any advice, sorry for the nasty details. I wish I could attach a picture with this post I cant describe it good enough.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have been using Nasonex (a prescription nasal spray) for the past ten years or so based on the recommendation of a family doctor) to alleviate my snoring. After viewing a recent E-mail that listed the many benefits of 3% hydrogen peroxide, I filled an empty Nasonex pump and have given myself the H2O2 for the past 3 nights. My wife reports no snoring. Short test but promising?

EC: We wrote asking for further clarification. Bob responded back: "I converted a used (empty) Nasonex pump and used it for a single shot into each nostril. Don't be surprised if the user sneezes several times after each application."

When using the 3% peroxide in the nazonex bottle. Did you dilute the peroxide or use straight 3% peroxide in the bottle?

Sore Throats

I have had a sore throat for a week now. I put the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (no mix)onto some Qtips and then rubbed it onto my tonsils. It completely got rid of the white pus sacs on my tonsils and was foaming. The Qtips actually had pus all over them..Kinda gross but it worked!! I IMMEDIATELY felt better and am able to swallow now without pain..What a miracle that stuff is! I would rate the pain before using the peroxide, a 10, after using it a 1. Slight discomfort but not really noticeable. I also did it until I saw no more pus on my tonsil or on the qtips. Use a clean qtip each time. Also, this can cause you to gag..so be careful with that. Thanks so much for this website!

I found out about Hydrogen Peroxide and Apple Cider Vinegar through this site. I have experienced how wonderful these two products are to the body. I originally purchased H2O2 for general health, but little did I know it would get rid of the sore throat almost instantly. One morning I woke up with a sore throat, and decided to try my H2O2, and I was shocked with the results. I took my Food Grade H2O2 35% with Coke, not the greatest idea, lol. So a full can (355ml) Coke + 15 drops of Food Grade H2O2 and and drank her fast as possible, my throat had a slight tingle, but within 10 minutes of ingesting the H2O2 my throat soreness was completely gone. My GF had the same problem, was skeptical of the H2O2, but I finally got her to take it, and she was surprised at how well it works to get rid of sore throats.

EC: Warning: 15 drops of food grade may be too much! Read more here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080225142204AA6BiVi

Spider Bites

I got bit by a brown recluse on my hand. Every day the scab would change color. It would go from slimy green to slimy yellow in the course of only an hour. So everyday I would pull back the scab and soak it in straight hydrogen peroxide. In six months it healed. If I had not done that it could have grown to a very large wound. But the hydrogen peroxide stopped that. Everytime I did soak it would really bubble. I have used this stuff for everything. It works! Marsha

Get this! I took a bath in hydrogen peroxide and it made my SPIDER VEINS in my legs way less noticeable!!! At first I thought it was the ACV i'd been taking, but after a week i noticed my veins back again. So I took another h202 bath (added 1 pt of 3% from store) and my legs are beautiful again!! I don't know how long it lasts, but temporarily it works!! I am so excited!

Stained Teeth

My daughter & I use baking soda and peroxide to brush our teeth once a week to whiten them... We pour baking soda in our hand, dip the toothbrush in the peroxide and start brushing... Your teeth will get pearly white after using this treatment for awhile...

I use peroxide 3-5 times a week as a mouth wash/gargle. It helps to keep my mouth feeling fresh, and it is a natural teeth whitener.

Blood Stain Removal

Rinse loose blood with cool water. Apply hydrogen peroxide to both sides of material. Repeat until all traces of blood have disolved. Works on furniture as well.
