The internet is full of testimonials and personal experiences of people using apple cider vinegar on warts. Most of these testimonials or reviews come from people after they have tried other methods, medications or over the counter applications.
My own research of such reviews concludes that more than 85% people report success rate in their experience of treating warts with apple cider vinegar. So, for most people, the treatment simply WORKS.
There are three main reasons people generally think the cider vinegar cure is the right way to go. First, it is a natural remedy and does not involve the use of any chemicals. Second, it is cheaper than most other cures. Last, it is normally safe. Users generally do not report side effects other than mild burning sensation.
- Duct Tap (optional)
- Circular bandage (optional)
- Cotton Ball
- Apple Cider Vinegar
How to Apply ACV to Warts?
1. Soak a small piece of cotton ball and dip it in the acv until becomes fully soaked.
2. Put the cotton ball and put it on top of the wart. Wipe off the excess apple cider vinegar.
3. Peel the circular bandage and cover the cotton ball by placing it directly over it.
4. Put the duct tape over the circular bandage so that it holds the cotton ball under the circular bandage.
Repeat the above process daily. It works well on planter warts too. You may not need the circular bandage and the duct tap. Simply putting any sticky plaster over the cotton will also do the trick.
No research or scientific studies have so far supported the treatment. However, up to 85% people report success within two months. According to Dr Tom of Detroit Foot Pain it chemically but naturally removes skin. It creates irritation and stimulates the immune system.
“I have been trying different methods and used ACV method as suggested by others. Although it works, but it leaves nasty mark behind. Furthermore, it is not very comfortable and leaves the burning sensation.” Maria
“I had two genital warts and after much research, I used apple cider vinegar to give it a try. After a week time the warts turned black and were scabs before they fell off. However, it left a kind of deep wound mark. Last three days I have been seeing improvements in the wound mark. May be it will go in a couple of days.” Jackson
“I first saw two small warts appearing in my viginal area. I ignored them as I thought that these would go away on their own. They did not go, rather they got worse. It spread and even reached my bum area. I do not have any insurance or enough cash to see the doctor. I also feel it extremely embarrassing to see the doctor for my viginal warts. However, it tried a couple of cream and treatments sold on the internet. ALL OF THEM SUCK! They simply don’t work. Sorry, forgot to mention I had tried apple cider vinegar before but abandoned it for its stinking smell and burning. Now as I had no other option, but to go back acv. Bragg’s ACV does not cost too much, so I thought I would give it a try again. After using it for a week and bearing with the burning sensation, all of them have fallen except one big one. That one too looks like healing and falling off.
So ACV works! It is cheap too. The only downside is the nasty smell and burning sensation.” Barbara “I had two genital warts under my penis. I am extremely shy. Without telling anyone, I researched it on the internet and found that organic apple cider vinegar with mother works best. I bought a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar and soaked cotton in it. I then squeezed the cotton to remove the excess acv. I then applied it to the warts and pressing them a little. After that I applied adhesive taps over the cotton to keep the warts soaked in acv. I would leave the cotton for around four hours. Within a few days, the pain and burning sensation increased. I was a bit skeptical, but continued the treatment. The increased pain and burning was in fact a sign that acv was working on the warts. After two weeks both the warts fell. It has been around three months and I am totally warts free. My personal experience is IT WORKS.” Daniel Do You Have Any Story About Warts Treatment to Share? Please join the conversation by leaving you comments in the form below.
