Apple cider vinegar and swelling?

Hi, I was curious if anyone has tried using apple cider vinegar after cast removal to reduce swelling? I'm from Colorado and we are pretty into all natural remedies out here....and I know it can be used for Edema and sunburn. If not would it hurt to try? Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.....!

Options to help reduce swelling after cast removal post rhinoplasty

I have not heard of apple cider vinegar helping with swelling of the nose after cast removal from rhinoplasty.  If you want to use something natural, I would try using ice on the area to reduce swelling.
