I just went to the pharmacy to purchase some boric acid powder and empty capsules to treat a minor yeast infection. When the pharmacist handed me the bottle, I looked for a concentration on it, because I read somewhere in the archives to use 2% concentration. When I asked the pharmacist, he said it was pure boric acid. I immediately explained to him what I wanted to use it for and he said that it was fine, that's what this could be used for. I was surprised and asked, "So I can use this as a vaginal suppository??" and he said absolutely. One capsule per night in a 00-sized capsule.
I mean, I believed him, but that sounds really scary to me. Pure boric acid in my vagina? Are there like different kinds? On the bottle it has a huge skull and crossbones that said "POISON - for technical use only, not for internal use." Is this normal?
