ACV for Miliaria (Prickly Heat)
This is completely embarrassing. I'm a woman with large breasts and, unfortunately, I gained weight that I'm now working off.
One day I was in the shower and noticed that the skin under my breast was very itchy. I looked and noticed it was a rash. I'd never had anything like it and, a few days later, realized it was prickly heat because of my heavy breasts. I then looked at pics of prickly heat cases and pretty much my skin looked just like it. :(
I read that apple cider vinegar might help. (It helps with so many ailments that I figured why not try it?) However, I knew my skin was tender, so I watered it down with about 50% water. I got a cotton ball and applied it to the skin under my breasts. There was a little stinging but the itching went away. I treated my skin consistently for a day. Then I went to the gym. I brought some cotton balls soaked in 100% ACV with me and used them after I showered. I've decided that I'll probably be a risk for this until I loose the weight that I need to loose.
Now I apply a little ACV after my showers. I even put a little ACV under my breasts before working out. That might be a bit excessive, but I want to avoid this from happening again. It's just not a good feeling. Also, before getting dressed, I follow up with baby powder to soak up any sweat.
Embarrassing to have prickly heat there, but I have it and ACV has saved me again.
