Ratio of borax to water

Posted , 12 users are following.

Hello to all my saviors

I need to know the ratio between boric acid and water how much of each do I put in. I finally bit the bullet and bought some good spray bottles and some boric acid but I don't know how much of each I put in. Could someone please help me. It's just Jesus driving me crazy. Not only has it kept me isolated from friends and family it just kept me out of work and the pain is quite unbearable. My doctor has finally agreed to give me something for the pain. Unfortunately it is an opioid. But there is nothing else that match it enough for me to get through the day. I am taking a very small dosage. And not taking it if I don't have to. So. I am working on various appointments and whatnot but I do need to know the ratio between water and boric acid thank you so much

    Do NOT use Boric acid!!! It is not the right product! We are using about 1/8 cup sodium bicarbonate to a sitz bath that sits on the commode. Or baking soda.

    Hi there! What kind of opioids are they giving you? I highly recommend trying not to take an opioid as they are highly habit forming and this can happen very quickly! Also they will slow down your digestion ie your bowels can get backed up, and this can lead to issues too, not to mention mood swings. If you take it once in a while in extreme conditions then it’s not going to have the same effects. Have you consider cbd oil instead for pain? I hope someone else here can make suggestions for alternatives. A concentrated solution of borax just means keep adding borax, shake up the mix with water and when there’s still borax left after a big shake, you have yourself a concentrated solution. So sorry you are going through this.

    Oh my God. I am so glad I asked about this. I'm pretty sure what I bought is boric acid and I did put some in the water my goodness. I still need to learn so much more. I will I will get the borax and not boric acid. My Lord but at least I found the right spray bottle. And it does feel good to put water in the area. And I just got home from a party and I am just exhausted from all of this itching and scratching and throbbing and pulsing and all this crap. I see the next drop your on the 17th of August. She is a general gynecologist then I see in February the vaginitis specialist I hope I last that long. Thank you all so much for replying back to me I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it thank you everyone have a good evening
