YI sitz bath...

I got this off of www.healthatoz.com. Has anyone every tried this?

To ease discomfort from a vaginal yeast infection, women should take a warm saline sitz bath. To prepare, fill the tub to hip height with warm water and add 1/2 c of salt (enough to make the water taste salty) and 1/2 vinegar. Sit in the bath for 20 minutes (or until the water gets cool). The vinegar will help bring the vaginal pH back to 4.5 (pH is a measurement of how acid or alkaline a fluid is).

Yes I have done that.. many times.. it does help sooth your infection. I actually was going to type it the other day but forgot what all I use to put in it.. I new vinegar to soothe.. but forgot what else.
