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.....!

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.
