Apple Cider Vinegar: An anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory agent, apple cider vinegar can also get rid of an ear infection and provide relief from tinnitus. Mix about 2tsp of apple cider vinegar in one glass of water and drink this solution every day until the ringing stops. You can add some honey for flavor.

An allergic reaction that takes the form of red, itchy bumps on your skin, hives (or urticaria) can be either temporary or chronic. Although the cause of these skin welts remain unclear, they are a response to histamine, a chemical released by the body that makes blood vessels leak fluid into the deepest layers of the skin.

Anything that leads to an allergy—pollen, dust, dander, dust mites and shellfish—can cause hives. You can also get them from excessive heat or cold, exposure to sunlight and stress. Since they usually manifest as an allergic reaction, relief can be found by understanding the cause and avoiding it.

How Is Apple Cider Vinegar Effective?
Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, apple cider vinegar reduces the itching and  keeps swelling and redness in control. Its antihistamine properties regulate the body’s immune response and limit irritation and pain.

Some natural products, such as apple cider vinegar, can be used to make an easy home remedy to treat hives.

How To Use It

  • Add two cups apple cider vinegar to your bath water. Soak in it for 15 to 20 minutes daily.
  • Alternatively, you can wash the affected area with a solution of apple cider vinegar and water (1:1), two to three times a day.
  • Mix 2tsp apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Add a dash of honey and lemon for taste. Drink it twice daily for greater benefits.
