Tea tree oil, and vitamin C=peeling vaginal wall?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've been using a peroxide, water, and tea tree oil douche. and I've been inserting vitamin c every night. I also take vitamin d, c, odorless garlic, and acidophilus. I've used 5 vitamin c pills thus far, but my vaginal skin is peeling. The discharge is a watery yellow, orange, and with a slight pinch of red with vaginal cells in it. Should I be concerned?? I also smell slightly of blood down there. I am going to give it a break, but has anyone else experienced this before...I'm scared, and very worried.

    That seems like a lot of things for your vagina to all take in at once. Yes I suggest you do things once at a time, see what works best. Give it a break for a little now I understand you're very eager to find that cure.

    Oh goodness, that does sound like a lot all at once. I know BV is super frustrating! Don't worry, you will figure it out. As I read your post I realized that one of the major problems with BV is the how the bacteria adheres to the vaginal wall. This is why it can be so tough to finally get rid of. Sounds like you are on to something. I would just say take it slow from now on. See what works for your body. Boric Acid worked for me!

    Prayers for you!

      Yes, your right. I was getting a little carried away. It really is, and it's embarrassing. Yes your right, and that's true. Okay. For now I'm just taking the vitamin c, d, odorless garlic, and acidophilus orally. I added tea tree oil/ lavender oil to my vaginal wash. Im trying to avoid putting anything up there for now. Okay, and really?? Did you experience any bad side effects from boric acid?? Also how did you go about getting it? How often do you use the boric acid? I'm glad that it worked for you. Also thank you, I totally appreciate it!

      It sounds like you are doing everything right! Those vitamins will definitely help. I take probiotics and folic acid everyday, along with Vitamin D and Cran-Actin. That combo seems to be working!

      I was on metronidazole (Flagyl) 4 different times in 4 months. Finally my Dr prescribed 21 days of boric acid suppositories. I know you can make them yourself, but I decided to just pick them up from the compound pharmacy she called in to. I put one suppository in each night for 21 straight nights. After 2 days I noticed a huge improvement! The itching and pain were decreasing every day little by little. After about 2 weeks, my discharge went from massive amounts to a more normal range. I checked my Vaginal ph levels and by the end of the 21 days I was between a 4-4.5 (the best it has been in 6 months).

      Now, I am only taking vitamins and feel SO much better. The day after the first boric acid suppository I was a little irritated but by the second day there was no irritation.

      After months and months of metronidazole and metrogel, the boric acid finally was the thing that worked. I promised myself that when I found what worked for me I would share.

      Prayer has also been a big part of my journey. I mean it when I say I am praying for you.

      Ask your Dr about boric acid that can be compounded. Hopefully it'll work for you, too! smile

      Yes, I gave it a break. I'm taking the vitamin c now orally, along with Vitamin d, odorless garlic, and acidophilus. I also put tea tree oil, and lavender oil in my vaginal wash.

    I wouldnt be scared, just quit putting that Vit C in your vagina. It burned me, I couldnt stand it for more than 20 minutes. You should probably give your tissue a rest from that C.

      okay, and yes I gave it break. You are definitely right. For now I am just using a mixture of tea tree oil, and lavander oil in my vaginal wash. I'm also taking odorless garlic, vitamin d, c, and acidophilus. I'm trying to stwee clear of anything that requires me putting anything up in that region.

    Boric acid is amazing stuff. I also eat raw garlic & take probiotics.  However, it’s what you don’t eat that helps the most. Did yourself of grain & sugar. Recently I started douching with diluted orange peel oil. I really like it.
