By now you probably know exactly which item in your medicine drawer does what. You are aware that if your tummy hurts, you should take an antacid. You know that when you have an allergy flare up you need to take an antihistamine. You know to take Advil or acetaminophen or a similar pain killer when you are having a headache. Did you know, however, that basically all of the items in your medicine box can be applied to a bunch of other ailments as well? Consider these uncommon cures for extremely common problems. You know that you need to take an antacid like Alka Seltzer to help calm heartburn or a stomach that is acting up. Did you know, though, that you can use Alka Seltzer (and other antacids) to ease the sting of a bug bite as well? This is because virtually all antacids like Alka Seltzer come with aspirin which helps lessen the pain and stinging you feel when you are bitten. Make a paste out of a smashed up tablet of antacid, some oatmeal and a little bit of water. Smooth it over the bite and you should feel better almost instantly. This usually works a lot better than those products that are created for the same purpose, like calamine lotion. It's common knowledge that mouthwash helps stop bad breath or halitosis but did you know you can use it to cure athlete's foot as well? Alcohol based mouthwashes are really good in keeping your toes and feet clean and in good health. After showering, soak a cotton ball with an alcohol based mouthwash and rub it between your toes and over the bottoms of your feet. The alcohol will kill any fungal infections that might be trying to take hold. Ordinary baking soda has been used for decades to clean your teeth. Also, baking soda can be used to make the teeth white and to scrub your mouth. However, did you know that baking soda is a great treatment for skin conditions like sunburns also? Baking soda's properties have been knowne to have a neutralizing effect on the skin's pH levels. For the most relief, pour a full cup of baking soda into your bath water until it is entirely dissolved and then soak in the water for 30 minutes or so. You are already aware that aloe vera works great in treating burns. Aloe vera can soothe the skin and help relieve the pain of most skin burns from sunburns to second-degree burns. Did you know that you can use it to heal canker sores too? The same things that soothe burns can heal canker sores. Studies indicate that people who use aloe vera for treating canker sores heal up to 50% more quickly than those who use traditional canker sore cures. These are just a couple of the unconventional ways that you can make use of conventional illness and injury treatments. Instead of paying for the latest nonprescription cures for your ailment, why not try something you already have in your home? You have all sorts of remedies in your medicine cabinet that do more than what they are marketed for, why not get the best value for your money? More tips here - breast actives results
