Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV virus affects the tissues of the genitalia. Warts can appear too small to be visible, but appearance can range from small, flesh-colored bumps, to large with a cauliflower-like appearance. Not all strains of HPV will cause genital warts, but some forms of the HPV virus can additionally cause cervical cancer, so it's an STD of substantial concern. HPV is spread through sexual contact, but usually the immune system kills and prevents HPV from developing signs and symptoms.
Warts can occur on the vulva, the walls of the vagina, the anus, the cervix, and in the area around the external genitalia in women; it can also occur on the tip or shaft of the penis, the scrotum, or on the anus in men. Genital warts can also grow in the mouth or throat after oral sexual contact with an infected area. Other symptoms of genital warts are gray swellings in the genital area, itching and discomfort, and bleeding with intercourse.

03/22/2013: Wendy from Culver City, California, Usa: "HPV or Human Papilloma Virus belongs to a group of viruses that affect the skin and mucous membranes of human beings. It can be easily spread by skin to skin contact. The common treatment for this virus has not been found yet and it is not possible to get rid of the virus completely. The aim of treatment is to improve the immune system of the individual. Curing hpv, also called human papilloma virus or venereal wart, can only be achieved through strengthening the body's resistant system.
Person suffering from the disease should maintain a healthy lifestyle. To live clean and strengthen immune system are very important. Living with HPV is much easier if you have a healthy body. This prevents the warts from recurring. Intake of vegetables especially Cruciferous vegetables which includes cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli and citrus fruits should be increased with minimizing intake of sugars, caffine and refined foods. Herbs such as Echinacea, Phyllanthus emblica, Hyperisince Mysorense are known to boost immunity. Most plants of the Hypericum family have also been studied to have anti-viral effects."Replies

10/23/2011: Comment from Chicago, Illinois: "Does anyone have experience trying to use apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar) with a case of warts as massive as the following? I am scheduled for surgery in 14 days, but the warts are growing so fast right now that in 7 days they have gone from being an invisible cauliflower-like mass inside the anus to a cookie-sized mass jutting outside of the rectum, stuck between the utt checks visibly and threatening to keep growing beyond the confines of the cheeks next. My surgeon and doctor have refused to shrink the mass in between my colonoscopy (which fortunately showed no cancer inside anywhere) and the surgery in two weeks, and said it's too large for topical medicines, etc. I was only diagnosed in August, immediately scheduled the earliest possible laser treatment, and have been unable to get laser treatments more frequently than two weeks apart, which has proved to be enough time for the wart mass to regain all of the size it lost from
Laser treatment 14 days prior. That's why they recommended the surgery (which from what I read online could have an INTENSELY painful "recovery" period afterwards and that the warts will likely return, though treatments thereafter may be easier as they'll be smaller. I am petrified of this period if I can't get maintenance/treatments more frequently than two weeks or more apart while they speed-expand (assuming that continues post-surgery. ). I tried the vinegar last night just with the hope of keeping them from becoming a tail outside my butt. So far it's not clear to me anything has happened but it's very hard to see back there. Looks like the tip may be a little white, and I'm not even sure the mass hasn't grown again since last night. Hard to say. My doctor has recently seen cases even worse than mine--the day before laddering mine she had treated someone with a mass that extended all the way to the testacles, and she was unshackled an unperturbed by the size when she first saw me in August. (She works in a clinic that sees a lot of rectal and hpv-related conditions, though the focus is on HIV there and I am negative for HIV, am otherwise very healthy, got the warts from a long term monogamous partner who I'm no longer with for three years. ) Should I keep up with the burn of the vinegar or follow my doctors advice and let it become a painful bloody life threatening tail before a surgery that could produce months of even greater pain at least while passing bm? Who has treated internal masses this way? Anyone?"Replies
11/14/2011: Jaketapper from Seattle, Washington replies: "I was told that I had hpv a few years back and my doctor said I was lucky that I caught it early and that all I need to do was take a muti-vitamin. I didn't get the warts or anything but my advice is if you are active even if it's your husband or wife stay getting checked."
12/05/2011: El Ahr from Cairo, Il replies: "Chicagoan - fear not!! I posted the below message almost 4 years ago (check page 10 of the postings here). I have not had an outbreak since then by following the regimen I describe below. I promise you if you follow it, your G.W. will go away and not come back. Mine did, and so many others I have shared this with have been G.W. free for years. I share this with everyone I know and will continue to because it is research based and it works, my friend. Read this, run to a Walmart or Walgreens, and get to work!!! Good luck and God Bless YOU!!!
05/26/2008: El Ahr from Cairo, Illinois writes: "Genital Warts: (This is long but it is WORTH THE READ. I DETAIL HOW TO MAKE THOSE WARTS DISAPPEAR FOR GOOD!!! Don't waste your money on any gimmicks - this advice is free and it worked for me).
I was a HUGE skeptic when I first decided to try a home remedy for my warts. When I first realized I had warts on the shaft of my penis, I cried with shame. I scoured the internet, did tons of research and panic took over as I sought a way to get rid of this taboo STD. And if you stumbled across this website, I'm pretty sure you've felt the exact same thing I've just described. But ladies and gentlemen, SAVE YOURSELF THE EMBARRASSMENT of having genital warts a part of your medical history. Before you go see a doctor, relax, take a deep breath, and from this moment forward, put yourself in a POSITIVE state of mind because everything is going to be alright. I found this site MONTHS AGO, but I have waited to post until now (three months later) just to be sure this wasn't a fluke.
To begin, everybody's body is made up a little different, but I swear on everything that is holy and dear to me, this worked for me and I feel like a new man. I followed this procedure and by the third day, my warts fell off:
First, start off by taking a nice warm shower. Clean your whole body, and pay special attention to the area with warts. I suggest taking a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in the shower with you so that after you're done soaping up and rinsing, you can poor it directly on the area just to kill off any wart particles that may cause the nastiness to spread. After your shower, dry off. Get some regular sized bandages, some cottonballs, and some Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). ACV is cheap and any kind will work. Take a bandage and cut a strip of the adhesive part off the bandage. This strip will serve as "tape" to hold the cottonball in place. Then, take a cottonball, rip off a piece that is about the size of the wart, and roll it up nice and tight. Take your little ball of cotton and soak it in ACV. Squeeze it gently so it wont drip, but don't squeeze it so much that the cotton ball is dry. You want to leave some ACV in there so the wart will drink it up.
Next, take the ACV-soaked cottonball piece and put it in the middle of the adhesive strip you cut (on the sticky side). It should stick to the strip. Then carefully, place the cottonball directly over the nasty little wart you want to kill. Gently push the advesive srtip onto your skin, but don't push too hard. Once you've done this, cover that strip with a small bandage to keep in place.
I've read some people report that this stings a bit. It stung a little for me by the second day because ACV might take off a little bit of the good skin around the wart. But TRUST ME, it is worth the sting and after a bit, you should get used to it. If anything, put yourself in the state of mind that "the sting is the wart dying. " That will help you to grin and bear it.
Do this in the morning after your shower before you go to work/school/wherever. When you get back home in the evening of the first day, when you take off the bandage and adhesive strip, you should notice the wart to start to turn whitish-grey. Take another shower, and repeat the process of soaping up, soaking in the warm water, and pouring hydrogen peroxide on the wart right before you get out of the shower. Follow the same procedure with the cottonballs, the ACV and the bandage strips and leave it on through the night. When you wake up in the morning, you will notice the wart turning a blackish/dark-grey color. That means its working.
Do this for two more days or until the wart just falls off in the shower. If the skin around the blackish wart turns whitish, that ALSO means it's working.
I think one other person on here has addressed how to take care of your skin AFTER THE WART FALLS OFF. You may notice that when the wart falls off, the skin underneath will be raw. You may see like a little hole in your skin. Thats a good thing, but your REGIMEN DOESN'T END THERE!! Once the wart falls off, if you are in the shower, IMMEDIATELY rinse off the area and pour hydrogen peroxide on the skin. The area will turn white and bubble up (the reaction from the Hydrogen Peroxide killing off the germs). This is a good thing so don't freak out. Then rinse off. You may notice that when you rinse, the raw skin may stay "whitish. " That's okay. Thats just the hydrogen peroxide that is in the skin now. When you get out the shower, dab some hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball and hold it on the new skin for few seconds. Then CAREFULLY take a cottonswab and put some antibiotic on it (like an ointment with zinc oxide in it) and dab it on the raw skin. DON'T smear it all over, just dab it right on the raw skin. Cover it with a bandage, and for extra caution, once you are done putting on the bandage, take some hyrdrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol, dab it on a cotton ball, and wipe the area where the bandaid is just to be sure you aint spreading wart germs.
Repeat this for an additional four to five days and the area will heal up like brand new. You will never even know a wart was there. In total, you can be like new in about 2 weeks time.
In addition to this direct method, I have decided to build up my immune system. This not only has prevented new warts, but I swear I haven't gotten sick AT ALL. Im sure that by now, my body/immune system has killed off whatever virus was in my body that caused the warts.
On a daily basis (and I take this with food so I don't ruin my stomach), I take 1000 mg of vitamin c, 1000 I.U. Of vitamin E, 25,000 I.U. of vitamin A (as beta carotene), 50 mg of zinc, 500 mg of lysine, an Echinacea and Golden Seal complex pill, a One-a-day multivitamin, and Garlic Supplement pills (2 at a time). I spent only 30 dollars buying all these pills at a drug store, and it has been every bit worth it. They have lasted me already almost four months and I feel great. If you read up on these vitamins, ALL of them are known for either boosting the immune system or helping the body kill viruses. They really really work, I swear by them.
For those of you freaking out about your genital warts, TRUST ME you're not freaking out nearly as much as I did. I almost went crazy living with them. But I followed the advice of people who have been through this before me, and I am passing the advice down to you coupled with my own little tricks. It upsets me that there are so many jerks out there that try to charge you for advice to help you get rid of these nasty little things. I learned everything on this posting on my own, and it WORKS.
Also, I would HIGHLY recommend trying this remedy first. Don't waste your money on unnecessary doctor visits and prescription drugs that are probably gonna do you more harm than good. However, don't take this message to mean you should not see your doctor. If there is something wrong with you, by all means go see him. But for a genital wart that you can get rid of on your own? In such a short amount of time? Save your money, save your time, and follow this procedure. You are not alone, and you WILL get rid of them.
Thank you Earth Clinic for this wonderful site!!
Good luck and God Bless."
01/17/2012: Sam from Toronto, Canada replies: "After reading all these posts I felt I had to share my story and contribute to the support this forum has been for people like me in this situation. About a month ago I noticed a strange bit of skin the size of a pencil eraser tip on top of my anal opening. At first I thought it was just a skin tag. However it continued to bother me as it wasn't something that I'd ever noticed before. So I decided to go to the doctor to get some piece of mind about this. He confirmed what hadn't even crossed my mind; anal warts. The most disgusting sounding thing I could have imagined. I was shocked. Being a sexually active male, I guess it shouldn't have been such a shock, but it's definitely been a wake up call! He was very reassuring, and calmed my fears that this is something many people get and it can be treated and handled. He used cryotherapy, basically freezing as much of the wart as he could and said to be back in two weeks.
Well now this thing on my anus has consumed my mind, and getting rid of it and making sure it never comes back has become almost an obsession. I found this forum and that very night I tried using the ACV method that so many people have written about.
The first night I dipped a piece of cotton in the ACV then taped it to the wart and the surrounding area. It didn't sting or hurt, went to bed with it. The next morning I found the top layer of the ward had gone white and even bits of it had turned gray. How much was for the ACV and how much from the freezing, I can't be sure. But I tried it again for the next two nights. By the third night it was stinging like hell. I think some of the ACV had irritated the skin around the wart which was red. Makes it difficult to move around when the irritated skin rubs up against anything. However the wart itself which seemed like it was almost a little coil shape had begun to change size. The black bits came off in the shower and I can see it's getting smaller. After every ACV application I can see the skin turns white, and then gray. I've done this for 4 nights now, I'd say of that big wart has decreased about 40-50%. Some of the skin around it also turned slightly white but I'm not sure if those are warts that were just flat/unseen or skin that's been irritated.
The skin around it is raw so I've been using neosporin on it which helped sooth the skin. I'm going to try this again tonight, maybe use a smaller piece directly on the wart and try to avoid any other part of the skin.
I have to say this has been a very psychologically and physically humiliating experience. I can only hope that there's no recurrence and that I can get rid of this for good. I know it's down to ones immune system to fight off the HPV virus, that's why I've also decided to completely change my diet and my bodies internal environment so I can make it impossible for this to ever thrive again! I've read up on the bodies ph balance and have a feeling I have a very acidic internal environment which is perfect for viruses and other bacteria to thrive in. Drinking things like coffee, eating foods high in starch and sugar all contribute to this. So I've been eating more alkaline producing food, started taking ACV as a shot twice a day, and packing up on the vitamins. I'm hoping within a week or two this will become a distant memory! I'll keep everyone posted about the progress. Thanks again for the support and for everyone who shared their story!"
02/04/2012: Rusty from New York, Ny replies: "Hi, please, Please, PLEASE read this before you do anything. Do not put apple cider vinegar anywhere on your genital area. It may work, but you are playing Russian Roulette. (I played and lost). I just got back from my doctor and I have chemical burns with permanent damage from less than a week of using 5% vinegar for just a couple hours a day. My doctor said it was stupid and was like using a nuclear bomb to kill a mosquito. Please let your immune system fight it. Do everything you can to strengthen your immune system (reduce stress/overwhelm, get sleep, relax, take vitamins A, C, D, E, garlic pills, echinacea, lysine).
Go see your doctor. If he wants to freeze it or burn it off, say no. We hate warts and we hate them down there and are eager to get rid of them ASAP. But don't be greedy, be patient. Or you will be very, very sorry, and will feel stupid for practicing medicine with stuff you read on the internet. ACV might be fine for warts on your hands, but please know that the only way to truly get rid of warts is to have your immune system fight them. Keeping them moist with oil or antibiotic ointment can increase circulation which helps your immune system fight them. Once your immune system wins, they will fall off. I tried to do it myself b/c I thought I would have a scar if I went to the doctor and he froze/burned it off. Now I have an enormous scar, and sense of major regret. If doctors recommended ACV, they would be sued. Please don't think you'll find the secret on the internet - boost your immune system and go see a doctor ASAP."
03/04/2012: Candice21 from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "PLEASE HELP: I was raped and contracted hpv when I was 18, I broke out with warts and received medicine from my doctor, and the warts went away. The ignorant doctor told me that if the symptoms were gone then the disease was gone, which years later I found was untrue, the disease was still alive in my blood and I could still pass it on to others. NOW: I have heard that it is possible for your immune system to eventually fight off the HPV. I have had sexual partners that I failed used protection with (because the doctors said the hpv was gone) and that never contracted HPV. What can I do to get rid of this disease? I have had it for years now, but have only had the one initial outbreak of warts. I've read that vitamin supplements, quitting smoking, and staying away from iron can help increase the chances of getting rid of the disease. Is this true? I do not want this for the rest of my life. What can I do? please help. Is it even possible to get rid of this? or am I torturing myself by believing so?"
03/07/2012: Happy In Canada from Windsor, Ontario Canada replies: "Just to let u know, I was diagnosed with hpv too, and I did the ACV paste to take off the initial warts. This worked great, but noticed they were coming back. I did more research and decided to take a product called VIRUX by BELL LIFESTYLE PRODUCTS. (Available from health food stores). I started as stated on bottle, taking 4 tablets per day for 15 days. Im now on bottle number 2 and have gone down to one pill per day as a maintenance dose. The itching has gone, the warts disappeared, and I feel and look like a new woman!! Honestly this is an amazing product, you will be amazed!! The bottle states.... Must work or money refunded! And it DOES work :) :)"
03/11/2012: Paesana from Melbourne, Aus replies: "It is not true that HPV lives in the blood. It lives in and on tissue. That is why there is no HPV blood test. Does not live in the blood! It is also not true that you have the virus for the rest of your life. There are many strains of HPV. Once you are infected, the virus either lays dormant, becomes activated (stress, low immune system), or goes away completely. Once your body kills the virus, you are immune to that strain. However, you can become infected with the many other strains that cause genital warts. People can carry the virus on their skin and have no symptoms.
I was diagnosed with genital warts last year. Have been symptomless for several months. I used 13% food grade hydrogen peroxide on the whole area (warts will turn white. Any breaks in the skin can turn white too) in addition to TCA applied by a physician. I was treated for 3 months before I saw any improvement. Vitamins are essential! I only use vitamins derived from raw foods/whole foods. Synthetic vitamins are not what your body wants or needs. You pee them out. Waste of $$. Also I used and still use antiviral herbs and medicinal mushrooms. I really feel that the mushrooms were the missing link for me. I use __________ brand (I take the ______ blend along with Reishi and Agarikon capsules). I went to an herbalist and she recommended copious amounts of lemon balm tea along with ______ tincture by _____ (warning: contains lomantium which, in rare cases, can cause rashes. I never developed a rash. Can also put the tincuture on the actual wart, which I also did. Hurts like hell tho). And I juice raw vegetables and fruits and get colonics. Green is clean as they say. I hope my warts have been killed but I try not to concern myself too much about it. I do believe stress can override any of the good things you do to boost the immune system."
03/13/2012: Pinkyandthebrain from New York, Usa replies: "ok this is what happened 2010. I was intimate with my current fiancee, the thing is I havent had sex in 5 years or more and I am the type of person who checks out my entire body almost every morning (its just a thing.. I like to be up close with my stuff) so I am sure I got it from him. He used to sleep with a lot of girls. When we were together also it seemed to me he didn't know how to use a condom (he accidentally tore it), I assumed he had nothing. I assumed I was the big slut in our relationship too... anyway no good will come out of blaming who infected who.
I didn't bother with bumps on my vag lips which I saw around a month after contact with him, after 5 mos there came bumps near my butt hole area, I assumed it was due to hemorrhoids and using very strong antimicrobial sulfur soap. I only have the hemorrhoids cause I wasnt eating properly (dieting too much). So my immune system crashed and I became susceptible, even more to the virus. I saw the warts around november 2011 after looking at my butt (which I usually do, I like to keep it smooth). I was watching philadelphia the movie, and I became very alarmed and almost suicidal, I went to see my gynecologist who then told me that it was an STD and genital warts. She gave me a dirty look and prescribed ALDARA cream to me, which I garnered even dirtier looks for attempting to purchase. Anyway DO NOT TAKE THIS CREAM IF YOUR WARTS ARE OPEN SORES/WOUNDS/CUTS it will mess you up you will wish you were dead. I recommend you guys reading the articles on google regarding this cream, its very dangerous for some people it rendered them almost immobile/paralyzed.
Anyway I took aldara for 2-3 weeks and I really did not see the warts slow down, it was depressing to anticipate putting the cream on my butt and vag lips. I am a type who who wants to be clean and smooth and this was very very traumatic for me. I cried almost every night and day and I tried to research online what I could do and the images of the warts also. These are my experiences using aldara cream
- 1)I bought disposable underwear because I burned my old underwear
- 2)I used the cream before sleeping, it made me sleepy
- 3) I used a desk mirror sat on a rag on the floor with my legs open in front of a vanity mirror..
- 4)wiped the cream properly in places
- 5) wear disposable underwear
- 6)put sanitary sheets on bed to not re-infect self
- I started using the apple cider, heres what I did
- 1)bought hane's apple cider ORGANIC vinegar
- 2)tons of cotton balls
- 3)disposable underwear
- 4)cannot stand to sleep with this stench, I cover a bunch of cotton balls and stuff them on my vag lips, inside (not inside the vaginal canal) and on the butt area
- 5)use oral painkillers tablets (paracetamol or ibuprofen) it still hurt a lot to a point I was shaking
- 6)i did this almost everyday for almost 2 mos, Jan 15 to Mar 10
- 7) now it is almost gone but I scarred my butt pretty bad, I put some cream oil on it
- 8) u can just use qtips, use those surgical tapes (the ones where ur pores can breathe) , pour vinegar on the qtip and set the qtip on the wart and tape it overnight
- 9)i highly recommend disposable undies cause the apple cider smell probably wont go away or it will stain ur underwear
- 10)instead of using tissue paper, use gauze, it wont hurt that much if u use gauze, cause tissue chafes a lot
- 11)beware of scarring, so I highly recommend the qtip thing.. the scar is light colored than ur normal skin tone
- 12) I also used hydrogen peroxide 10% and swabbed the areas after showering every day and my butt
- 13) ONE THING IS DO NOT LET THE AREAS BE WET , THE WARTS WILL SPREAD IF THE AREA IS MOIST
- 14)if concerned about moisture, leave cotton balls on between ur butt or vag area so it wont be moist, I promise u the warts will spread more when there is moisture
- 15)i took 1000 mgs of vitamin c almost every day (or every other day), vitamin e, coenzyme q10, garlic, I ATE properly , I drank lemonade everyday to boost my immune system
All this said and done and spent, I am exhausted and sometimes I worry that I might not want to have sex ever anymore :( The stigma also of knowing u have it, u dont want to share it with a future sex partner or lover/husband/wife/gf
Good luck and have faith, if u end up scarring and having wounds on ur genital warts due to using the apple cider, u can buy betadine and wash it with that it will heal faster then u can do it again."
04/28/2012: Studentofherbs from Olympia, Washington, United States replies: "I know how to deal with the warts. First, start taking a good natural Ester C, at least 500 to 1,000mg, twice a day, or morning and night. Do not skip a dose. As I learned a few years ago from a program for natural health which hosted a real physician who knows about the vitamin, most people with health problems are not getting enough of it every day. Taking C, especially if you are consuming foods that are acidic, such as tomatoes and oranges or soda pops and fruit juices, will be far too acidic for the stomach and is why it is absolutely necessary to ingest the vitamin in non-acidic form. It does cost a little more but it is well worth the money and freedom from waking up in the middle of the night with an acidy substance in your throat and mouth.
To use apple cider vinegar, all one needs do is to apply a cider vinegar-moistened piece of cotton to the wart, around the clock, until the bump is gone. A light application of petroleum jelly on the non-wart afflicted skin will help to keep everything but the wart from the harsh effects of the cider vinegar. If the vinegar fails, Homeopathic remedies may provide an answer. Seeking the assistance of a good and qualified Naturopath may bring about excellent results although several visits may be necessary to achieve the desired results. They and Homeopaths generally consult a book known as the Materia Medica and although it is correct about which remedies should be given, sometimes trying out a few additional remedies is required before the exact and correct one is located, or found. I possess such a book and must say that it is a true blessing to have at my disposal. Cider vinegar is much less painful than freezing but only up to a point where the initial thick covering of the wart has been destroyed whereas gritting one's teeth and bearing the pain are the only ways to get through the final stages of the wart's death and detachment from its blood supply and the skin's nerves. At that moment, with continued treatment, the pest should be considered on its way out. Along with Ester C, taking a normal dose of potassium, folic acid and iron might also be helpful. Or, one to two teaspoons of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses can be taken, every day. Sanitize the hands and the toilet seat with a cheap brand of moist hand sanitizing towelettes, and also clean the faucet's handles, after every use.
For men, if they stand to urinate, their urine splashes out of the toilet and onto the floor so the floor should be sprayed with a solution of diluted Pine Sol (50% regular Pine Sol/50% water) and dried with a towel every time they make a "pit stop. " Never use household cleaners anywhere on or in the body as they are dangerous due to their ability to poison it and they are not known to annihilate warts. Please, do not become so desperate to get rid of them that using anything will do as there are better and safer ways of dealing with them.
Tea Tree oil is another remedy which is pretty safe to use on the exterior genitals and also in diluted form. Dilution of the oil can be done by filling a douche bottle with warm water and adding three or four drops of Tea Tree oil. As a word of caution, never scrape, file or scratch a wart as it might start to bleed or, because it could be sensitive to cider vinegar or another natural remedy, treatment may have to be put off for a while. And, the possibility that virus will spread further and cover more skin mass will be greatly increased. Finally, persistence and round-the-clock treatment is the way to go when dealing with genital warts because every second that they are left untreated means they are on vacation and free to do just what they want to which is to suck your lifeforce out of you, grow, multiply and LIVE!!"

Im currently using it for a Blastocystis outbreak (parasite) so hopefully two birds with one stone!
07/05/2012: Not Going To Stop Me! from Melbourne, Victoria / Australia replies: "Be very careful: I was accidentally given the wrong wart treatment by my pharmacist. I applied it as the instructions said and what I experienced over the next 10 day's was by far, the worst pain I have ever felt (and I've had a broken jaw, nose, arms, exploded appendix, a nasty paracite from africa etc). What they gave me was for plantar warts (feet) and not anal warts, which should have been Wartec Solution. It burnt my skin and I couldn't walk, sleep or move without severe pain.
My chin is up now after taking alot of pain killers and a great antiseptic cream and I'm about to use the wartec solution, the right one. I have also upped my vitamins and eating alot of my vegies too!!!!
This virus has really affected me and I hope I can get rid of it/the little buggers around my anus. It's not the easiest thing to talk about with people too, which has also been dificult to deal with BUT there are far less fortunate people out there and we are lucky that there are treatments!!!
Goodluck everyone, and just be very careful what you put down there!!!!!"
08/23/2012: Wtfdik from United Kingdom replies: "Hello all, I have GW, however I only seem to have the one big one on the shaft of my penis, I'm not sure how I actually got mine but I have them. I have been reading all this and I thought I would pipe up and document my saga.
When I was sixteen I got my first wart, it was on my right thumb, my mum bought me some OTC liquid that over a period of 4 weeks removed it and in 15 years has never returned and never spread.
Ok I have used neat tea tree oil in the past to remove a very small wart that was growing on my right cheek bone under my eye but didn't think it would work for GW. I would use a cotton bud soaked in tea tree and press it on the wart daily after a shower, I got a little dry skin but eventually after a couple of weeks it had completely gone and thus far hasn't returned, that was over a year ago now. I tried this because a childhood friends mother used it for herpes simplex and used to rave about it "working wonders on skin" They had brought it back from Australia.
I decided last Thursday night to have a go with this one big one I have. I showered in the evening and applied some tea tree to the area around the wart and directly on top of it. I then soaked a cotton ball the size of the wart in tea tree oil 100% and placed it on top of it, held in place with surgical tape and went to bed as usual. In the morning when I removed the bandage I was surprised to see that it had almost gone completely black, all except the side that was raised the highest. It also seemed as if one side had been flattened. This was crazy. I didn't think it worked like ACV? Anyway I repeated this the second night to get the remaining part hit and hopefully speed up the process. I was amazed when it had actually worked, all of it was black.
It was then I thought why is it turning black? So I googled it, that's when I found this site. Awesome site. I learned about ACV, I learned about hydrogen peroxide and that this is way more common than I believed. Since reading this site I have, ordered vitamins and ACV and purchased some hydrogen peroxide 6%.
I have done two more treatments of tea tree to the black and now hard wart, which has done more damage to the surrounding tissue than it did to the wart, that's what it felt like anyway, I also learned that one this site, only a little too late. I have given it two days rest and used antibiotic healing creme on the damaged healthy skin. Looking a lot better today.
So, 1 week on and the black scab has come off the wart, I rinsed it with H2O2 and it bubbled, however it hasn't all been removed, half of it still remains raised and bumpy. So to protect the area around it I have covered it in sudo healing crem and continued the treatment, I have also replaced this before going to bed.
Once the ACV arrives I will test other areas to see if I have any that I'm not aware of and get rid of them. I will report back with results."
08/28/2012: Wtfdik from Coventry, Uk replies: "Ok it's been 5 days since my last post, the damaged healthy skin is still scabbed and fairly tender. I had some yellowish clear liquid discharge from aroun the area, think this maybe due to the hydrogen peroxide which seamed to leave a chemical burn on me. Stopped applying anything except healing/wound cream. The ACV turned up and I have done one treatment on Friday and another treatment today, using a cotton wool bud to apply the ACV. The scab that had formed from Fridays treatment fell off today whilst applying the ACV. It is now much smaller and what's left of it is now white. I'm still in a mess, but it's getting better by the day. Very itchy though. I hope this doesn't take much longer, cuz this isn't nice."
10/05/2012: Becca from Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom replies: "I first found a lump on my vagina (on one of the lips) about 4 months ago, I didn't really think anything of it. I was sleeping with only my boyfriend at the time, I'd not had any sexual partners for almost a year prior to sleeping with him. I didn't know a lot about hpv, I didn't know it could lay dormant for years or anything. After the 'ingrown hair' didn't go away, I got a mirror and had a look down there. It didn't look too bad, just a fleshy lump. I was really worried and searched online for pictures and cures. I then dismissed it again, thinking this didn't look like the pictures. A couple months later I found another one next to it, and noticed I have a few around my anus and inbetween my vagina and anus. I broke up with my boyfriend because I couldn't stand to tell him. I didn't know if he had gave it to me, or I already had it. We work together and I didn't want it getting around work. I have not told anyone. I was all geared up to go to the doctors but backed out. I came across this site and I've read a lot of the posts on here about ACV. I was terrified to try it because of the complaints of stinging, so decided to take ACV pills, vit c pills, garlic and a multi vit to see if it would help clear anything up. No changes.
So a month or so later, here I am. I haven't noticed any change at all in these warts. Today, out of desperation, I finally decided to go for it. I got some AVC, a tip from a q-tip, socked it in ACV and plastered it to the warts on my lips. I was surprised that I didn't feel any stinging. I kept it on for two hours, thinking it wasn't going to make any difference. When I took it off, it was white and looked a lot larger than I orignally thought.
I decided to put more on, and also on my anus. I am not going to sleep with it on because I don't want to cause too much irritation to the skin. I will do about 3 2-hour treatments a day and see what happens.
I really hope this clears up, I will update soon."
10/05/2012: Becca from Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom replies: "Just an update. It has been 12 hours before I started this treatment.
I left AVC soaked cotton pads on my vagina and anus for around 3 hours, took them off and then put another one on my vagina for about 4 hours. The warts have come out and it is a LOT worse than I originally thought. I thought I had 1 wart and a smaller one next to it, and a couple between my anus and vagina, I thought they were single warts but they are actually clusters. It does sting slightly after and durying the 3rd treatment, but it is 150% bareable. I am going to leave it for now and continue in the morning after inspecting the area.
I originally was going to just to 30 min stints with the AVC, but as soon as I saw how white everything went, it's kind of addictive. I am now stuck between two states of mind. One that if I don't apply it overnight, they will just go back to normal and I will have made no progress, or that if I do apply over night it will sting like hell. I will leave it alone for now and see how I am when I get up.
I cannot believe this has happened to me =("
02/19/2013: Charl from London, Uk replies: "Hello Becca, I was hoping you would be able to let me know how you got on with the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment? Thank you."
11/29/2013: Jessica from Australia replies: "Hi, I have had genital warts last year June 2012.
I have tried the apple cider vinegar for a month bck in 2012 but not lucky with the genital warts as they came bck after 2 weeks..it peeled off my skin and also burned that healthy skin. I had great discomfort I could not walk very well..plus the putting it in a cotton ball inside ur vagina is outrages idea as it burns the soft tissue and cause bleeding..
Than I tried another method which was a success:
1. Buy 200mg Tagamet from over counter pharmacy/ take 3 times a day.
2. Drink Green Tea as it will help in shrinking the wart size at least 3/4 cups a day without sugar.
3. Take L-Lysine to soothe the skin to its natural colour. I used because docter burned and turned the skin black.
4. Take 2 muiti vitamin tablets.
I ate this for 4 months and it all cleared and never came bck. it has been 6 months wart free.
REMEMBER DON'T QUIT AFTER FIRST FEW MONTHS AS IT WILL TAKE TIME ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY AT LEAST 3/4MONTHS.MANY PEOPLE QUIT WITHIN A MONTH...PLEASE IF YOU WANT TO GET RID IT BEAR IN MIND 3/4MONTHS IS NOTHING.
WHEN YOU ARE WART FREE PLEASE DONT REINFECT YOURSELF WITH ANOTHER HPV STRAIN...IT WILL BE VERY HARD FOR TO GET RID OF IT....PLEASE DONT GO OUT AND HAVE SEX WITH SOMEONE IN DARK THEY MUST BE HIDING THEIR BUMPS OF HPV...
HAVE ONE PARTNER AND GET YOUR PARTNER CHECKED BEFORE HAVING SEX..PLEASE ADVISE YOUR PARTNER WHAT IS GENITAL WARTS AND IT IS VERY HARD TO GET RID OF IT SO THEY DONT CHEAT WITH YOU.
Thanks hope this helps."

i just want to inform all young women of the internal anatomy of the inside of the vagina.....the first few inches should feel rough or lumpy....this is because the vagina stretches. so if you are freaking out about this stop.....go do a doctor and get it inspected first....pass on the harsh acv treatments that could be hurting you internally. i too thought i had tons of warts inside of me when i was normal. i did some research and found out the the vagina has folds in it that appear to feel rough.
hope this helps you young girls calm down a bit."
02/25/2010: Chad from New York, New York replies: "well i contacted these warts while wearing protection. i have done research upon research on these. some people i know have got these things bad. i am lucky i only got 4 and thats it. i have had them for a while. no reoccurances mine have not spread. some people get them and they spread everywhere. despite what people may think these can go away for ever. i read an article on line that changed my whole way of these warts. what i have done so for i dont have the hpv virus in my system anymore but i still have 3 warts left. i went to the doctor and said i have hpv and wanna get rid of them. i showed the doc and he said your one of the few that dont have a lot of these. the doc drew blood and ran some tests. he told me the hpv is not in your system anymore. he was stunned. he asked me what i did. so i told him. he never heard of the stuff that i was taking and i took it for a while. people have to understand that your not gonna get rid of these warts by taking some stupid cream etc.. the first thing you have to do is boost your immune system. i took vitamin c lots of it. then i was taking a multi-vitamin for a while. i cant give product names becuase they will get deleted. they didnt fall off or turn colors. in fact i was mad because i wasnt seeing any results. so i was furious i cut one off with a knife, yup i said thats how mad i was. hurt like hell. well its been over a year and it has not come back. the rest i got froze off. one of the keys to getting rid of these warts is your immune system you have to start taking vit.c and not store bought but organic vit.c. its more expensive but it works. if you wanna send me an e-mail i will be happy to tell the product names of the stuff i was taking and maybe it might work for you. email@example.com"
06/12/2010: Excuse Me from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "You are right about building the immune system, but you are wrong about going to the doctor and getting a blood test for HPV. First off, HPV is not detected by blood test, only the HPV DNA test for women. Secondly, if you still had warts on you, then you still have HPV in your system. People, don't listen to this person giving out false advice, he doesn't even get the simplest facts correct."
05/02/2011: Redstene from New Castle, In replies: "Hello,
I was horrified to discover that I had genital warts which I contracted from my unfaithful husband. I should say my now former husband. I used the ACV, aspirin, castor oil treatment and was happy with the results, however the burning was excruciating and the recovery time was just as painful. I had results but it didnt get them all and I just keep having them returning. The itching is unbearable at times.
Upon researching I found a post elsewhere that said a highly oxygenated substance will kill the warts. The person stated that they used a product like oxyclean or a powdered oxygen type cleaner ( I will add that discription in case the product is blocked out) add water to make a paste and aply it. I tried it only I added the castor oil instead of water so it would apply better and stay on better. I tried a small test area and left it on for a couple of hours. I was elated to find that the very small wart had turned black and after one more application it fell off leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Last night I tried it on a larger area. I have to admit the burning was intense but I had used to Apple Cider Vinegar mixture so I had open areas. I meditated through the burning for 3 hours in the night and then rinsed off. I was amazed. I am in very little discomfort and it had a definate effect on the warts. I didnt know I had so many some were gone leaving just a small open area some were rasied and will need another treatment. I also learned that a hemrhoidal ointment will soothe the itching so you can rest. I just wanted to share this alternative with everyone. I hope it helps. Namaste"
07/05/2011: Kathiepeterson from New York replies: "HPV is a silent menace that can affect anyone of us if we aren't careful. I should know because I was infected with genital warts a few years back. It was too late, a vaccine could have protected me or I could have been more careful with my sexual health.
But the damage had been done. Little did I know that I was going to discover OxyFend- a topical treatment for genital warts. Soon after using it regularly my genital warts cleared.
I feel like I was given a second chance with that HPV scare. Today, proud to say I am more responsible and I have no plans of wandering off another path anytime soon."
10/19/2011: Mitstudent09 from Carson City, Nevada, United States replies: "ARMAGEDDON: THE CURE
If you really want to diminish HPV and Genital Warts, you must prepare for war, with the virus of course... So strap your helmit on and go get some ammo. You need to infiltrate and attack from not only outside, but inside as well. Sure ACV, Freezeaway and acid will take out the warts you have now, but what about the virus silly? Hit this virus on all fronts till it says screw it im outta here; White Flag. This is for people that want to be HPV and wart free, free and fast and back to normal.
Go to CVS and buy the following:
1. VITAMIN C TABLETS 500mg
Take these 5 times a day, you seriously need to overdose on vitamin C, the key element to the immune system.
2. GARLIC OIL PILLS
Do not waste your time with odorless garlic pills, they will not work and are essentially useless, You want the smelliest, potent oil pills out there. Odorless pills have the essential antioxidants removed.
Take these 8 times a day you will hate the burps, but you will love what theyre doing.
3. DAILY MULTI-VITAMIN "Daily Multiple" Plus Minerals
One a day? no way. Try 3 a day. This has the building blocks that will deminish the virus. VIT D, VIT A, ETC.
4. FISH OIL PILLS
So far we've only mentioned the internal solutions, but fish oil is going to help with OMEGA 3's for the skin you're about to go to war with.
5. COMPOUND W WART REMOVING GEL
This is gonna be for the larger warts, this is the heavy cavilry. Take em out with this nuke.
APPLY THE FOLLOWING 3 TIMES A DAY
6. ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGARAPPLY WITH A CUE TIP: This is going to start peeling off layers of your epidermis like an onion. Its going to kill your warts.
7. 100% NATRUAL TEA TREE OIL
APPLY WITH A CUE TIP: follow up the apple cider vinegar with the tea tree oil, this stuff is amazing. You're warts are gonna smell good too. If theyre still there that is...
8. ORGANIC CASTOR OIL
APPLY WITH A CUE TIP: castor oil. Slab it around everywhere down there.
ALSO NOTE. STOP DRINKING ALCHOHOL. STOP SMOKING, ITS WORTH IT. trust me..."
10/25/2011: Markus from Greensboro, Nc replies: "I feel obligated to write this because, thank God, I've been cured and there hasn't been any recurrence. DO NOT FREAK OUT LIKE I DID AND DO NOT BUY WARTROL OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU SEE ADVERTISED. MY DOC PRESCRIBED THIS EXPENSIVE CREAM I APPLIED FOR THREE MONTHS WITH NO RESULTS. THEY DON'T WORK AND YOU'RE LEFT MORE FRUSTRATED. Here's what worked for me and it only cost $5. Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar available at Wholefoods.
1. Btw do NOT use a cotton swab or cue tip as you WILL miss one or two behind and in a week they will return.
2. Take a wash towel and soak it in ACV. Squeeze the towel so it's not too drippy and cover your entire genital area, wrapping the penis entirely ( men) including the upper pube area for one hour.
3. Repeat this for 3-4 nights. Do NOT leave for more than one hour because it will scar your skin. Burning sensation is normal.
After the second application you should see the warts, including the ones you didn't know about turn dark. That's when you'll know how many more applications are needed, but no more than 2 one or half hour applications. You should be wart free in one week after the scabs fall off. I've been wart free for one year now.
Further advice: try and take a shot of ACV every other day. It's good for you and it builds your immune system. I personally like the taste, but you can also pour it on salad. Stay healthy, eat well, work out. All this will build your immune system.
Cheers and you're free from GW."
12/12/2011: He's Not Totally Wrong, from San Diego, California replies: "The immune system IS a big factor in treating these. That is why being immune comprimised in any way can cause an outbreak of warts. I didn't know this until a wart appeared while I was pregnant and I did some research."

I've been suffering with Anal Gential warts for a few months now. I already went to the dr once and had it removed. Most embarrassing moment ever!! Never will do it again. So I decied to try this. Now i'm not a huge pill type of guy. But I have decided to try this and see what happens. So today I went out and bought everything.
-Vitamin C Pills (Chewable kind)
-Garlic Oil Pill (Natural one, not the ordoless)
-Fish Oil Pill
-Apple Cider Vinegar Organic
-Tea Tree Oil
I want to get rid of this virus as soon as I can. So I will be updating you daily, if not weekly how my progress has been going.
Day 1: Just took Vitamin C, Garlic, and fish oil pills. Cleaned the anus area with Hydroperoxide, rubbed ACV, then Tree Tea Oil, and then castrol oil.
Going to try this twice a day. Morning and Night. Will let you know the results!"
12/16/2013: Ohioboy from Cincinnati, Oh replies: "Okay, since it's been awhile since someone did a day-by-day breakdown of their self-treatment, I thought I'd do one.
The symptoms: Genitals warts on the shaft and underside of my scrotum.
Previous treatment: I did Aldara for a few months with zero success. Oh, but I lost a lot of money doing it, so I have that going for me.
Day 1: I used straight-up ACV on a cotton ball on my shaft, and used medical tape to secure it on the wart "garden". Lots of burning followed, but it subsided eventually while I slept. More little warts appeared.
Day 2: Reapplied ACV on a cotton ball on the shaft. More burning, more dealing with it. Applied on my scrotum this time. Removing the tape is more painful than the burning, actually.
Day 3: Removed the tape after the second night and had a lot of blackened warts. Lots of sensitive skin, too. Decided to give the shaft the day off and focused on my scrotum. Hard to tape there, but I got it on. No real change there yet.
Day 4: Shaft is still very sore, so I've moved onto the ACV-asprin-Vitamin E mixture. Didn't feel any burning on my shaft, but some on my scrotum. Will sleep with this applied and see how it is in the morning."
02/15/2010: Yazzy from Sd, Ca: "While I'm thankful for this apple cider vinegar at-home treatment (while looking up common warts) and seeing that there are some success rates with it in the comfort of your own home, I hope anyone reading these posts sees a doctor, especially females and regardless if the warts were removed or not via this method. I also hope those of you seeing all of these make sure to get the facts on the GW/HPV virus.
I've had GW/HPV (human papilloma virus) since I was 15, and am now well into my 30s. I understand you all are embarrassed to see a doctor about this, but trust me...they've seen it a bazillion times before, as millions of people have it or have had it, many without even being aware of it.
FACT: Removal of the wart does not cure you of the virus. There is no cure! Can it go away? Studies now show that body may be able to cure it on its own, but only time and proper testing (PAPs for women) can tell.
FACT: Just because the wart is not present, does not mean you do not have the virus still and aren't likely spreading it to your partner(s), and they, in turn, aren't spreading it back to you and whomever else they end up with. Be responsible and tell your partners.
FACT: Just because a wart is removed or goes away on its own, which it can, does not mean that it won't come back. Chances are it will.
FACT: There are several types/strands of HPV--some that cause GW, but also ones that can cause cervical cancer. You may even have more than one strand that you aren't aware of, which may not even effect you (guys) but your partner. Again, be responsible with yourself and your partners. Wear a condom, though this is not a straight way to prevent from spreading the virus, but helps and you can help prevent reoccurring outbreaks.Is it embarrassing to tell people? Yes, but they will respect you for it and I've not had any problems over it.
FACT: Anyone can carry the HPV virus and, again, not show signs ever of even having it or, as some have claimed before more outbreaks, thinking they have a blemish or ingrown hair. Some men, for instance, may never show signs of having it and there are no tests for men to see if they have it, short of out breaks.
FACT: GW/HPV can lie dormant for years and show signs later on. Always be safe.
FACT: Embarrassed? You're not alone! More than 50% of sexually-active people carry this virus/infection, and it is the most commonly transmitted virus in the United States.
I hate to nag, but I really think people need to do their research and not just rely on home remedies and ignorance, as this is what causes the billions of outbreaks out there of the HPV virus to the point where it's at. Yes, billions. This is your health, your body, take care of it and know what you're dealing with, as well as those around you."
02/16/2010: Chuck from S.cal, Ca replies: "Endure the pain it works... I used just ACV on cloth or gauze wrapped around the shaft. It burned a little but holy shxt a day later the bumps turned black and one little group of 3 just fell off while I was checking progress. I will say I think I have a high tolerance for pain so I see why others say its too painful. On the 2nd night of treatment I cut a washclothe abouth the size of the entire region and soaked it in a cup full of ACV. I placed it over my entire groin area and put a plastic bag on top to keep my undies dry and bed. I laid face down to put pressure on the area and tried to goto sleep. It hurt like hell for about 10 minutes but i stayed the course and fell asleep after the burn diminished. I had/have about 10 warts, all have a black top now and like I said 1 little group already fell off leaving no trace . Thanks to this forum.

I just started the treatment today and it burns like hell but way worth it. I tried other things in the past and nothing worked, it actually got worse. I bought this stuff called BioT. Well not only was it very painful but the bumps spread worse than ever. I have been devistated! I really hope this ACV works! I will keep you all updated. Thank you again for the advice!!"

I am just going to continue with this treatment. Any advice would be great."
09/16/2010: Paul from Indiana replies: "Actually there is a cure go to PubMed dot gov and type in "aloe vera propolis" without the quotes. That is the results of the study. HPV was not present after this. It is interferon injections, which you can have your doctor prescribe to you, with aloe vera propolis and B-complex. With out the aloe vera and B-complex the cure isn't as affective. A brand of interferon for HPV use is called Alferon. There is also a therapeutic vaccine developed by ISA pharmaceuticals which is not as effective but draws off the "linked simple sugars" concept. It is called synthetic long peptide (SLP). SLP is kind of like the polysaccharides found in aloe vera except they are synthetic instead of natural. Everybody go get cured so we can live in an HPV-free world."
03/28/2011: Ed from Heber, Ut replies: "how to speed up the process
when you apply ACV on the skin make sure to apply pressure by pinching the skin. This cuts the blood flow and helps the vinegar penetrate. I have seen the area turn purple after 5 to 10 minutes. You do not have to keep the soaked pad on the skin all day by doing the pressure on the skin will cut the process in a matter of minutes and the next day you will notice a scab on the area. Restricting the blood flow while helping the vinegar penetrate allows the skin heal faster. I read about the laser treatment and one of the things the laser does is to cut blood flow to the sick area and also, claims to kill the virus."
03/15/2009: Overthis from Phoenix, Arizona: "Reading some previous posts, I would like to give some friendly advice. I work in the medical field so I have spoken to a few doctors about the HPV & many are suprised that ACV worked! But I also had many questions answered too! Just so I could be clear on how to deal with genital warts.
So, here goes:
1.) You CAN NOT spread the warts to other areas of your body. If it is the genital strain, its stays there. You also can not usually spread to your mouth as that is yet another strain of HPV. So, for those people worring about that, relax! I see that many people put the ACV on their mouths & were freaked that they saw little white bumps, but be aware, as when they test you using vinegar, even a regular bump can turn white. Also, the small pores around & right inside your mouth are sensitive, they will react to the vinegar, so don't automatically assume you have warts there. Get checked!
2.) Many people say they treated the warts without seeing a doctor. Please get checked. Yes, it is an embarassment. But some of the strains cause cancer. Not just in women, with cervical cancer. But men can also get rectal cancer. So, for your own safety, see a doctor. Just remember, that just because, there are no warts, does not mean there is nothing else going on with your body.
3.) Shaving will NOT spread the warts unless you cut yourself, so just shave carefully & you will be fine. Also, even if you do cut your self or get razor burn, cleance the area & keep using the Tea Tree oil after shaving. This will kill any germs, stop infection & any new spread of warts.
4.) For those people freaking out & using lysol on their pants. Going to extreme measures to kill anything that might be on them or their clothes. CALM DOWN, the stress and worry is not helping. Yes, be hygienic, be clean, but don't crazy trying to kill what isn't even there. Regular washing of clothes, bedding & whatnot is good enough to kill germs.
5.) Also, SHOWER SOAPS & GELS, DO NOT SPREAD WARTS. Don't believe averything that you read. This was one of the questions I had about the warts. And 3 different doctors from my work, confirmed that it is NOT TRUE. The spead from cuts & spread of the virus that causes it. Another reason you should speak to your doctor, have all your questions ready & ask! Get the right information.
I was just wanted to bring those points up so that maybe some others can relieve a little of their stress dealing with HPV. I would also say that if ACV doesn't work right away, don't give up! Give it time & soon you could be wart free & on the way to recovery. I wish you all the best."

I didn't see this as being different! Since I live in a house with one bathroom that we girls share I can not help but be very cautious. But thanks though for your post because it did put me at ease!"
08/09/2009: Jeff from Anaheim, Ca replies: "If everything has failed for you and the wart has returned after using ACV, Aspirin, and Castor Oil,
I recommend you try Elderberry extract and green tea extract together. I have been using it for 4 days topically and internally and seen really good results. I had one wart turn black. The other warts just shrank and are now below the skin and getting smaller the more times I use the drops. I also take a few drops under the tongue a few times a day. I think in 2-3 weeks I should be close to eliminated them all.
With ACV it was too painful and took a week just for it to heal. The elderberry and green tea method is painfree. Women will really like this method.
Both are antivirals and anti-cancer.
The brands I have been using are from Henry's Market:
Elderberry (sambucus nigra)
other ingrediants: grain alcohol (40-50% by vol), deionized water
Green Tea (90%polyphenols, 50% EGCG)
Other ingrediants: deionized water, vegetable glycerin, honey, luo han guo
I put it on almost every 3 hours. It seems to get absorbed into the skin very quickly. Elderberry contains alcohol which may help the absorption process.
11/29/2009: Vincent V. from New York, Ny replies: "The objective: Eliminate all visible GW and eradicate the HPV Virus
The plan: Attack the enemy on all possible fronts:
Front 1: the internal attack:
You should basically make it complicated for the virus to live. The better your nutrition is, the tougher it is for the virus. You should be a pain in the virus's butt. You should nail it down from within with full possible power. Your nutrition should be impeccable.
-No sugar. Period. No soda, no sweets no sugar in the coffee. NOTHING.
-Limit alcohol intake, everytime you get drunk, the immune system becomes weak.
Less drunk time=a better immune system. A glass or 2 of red wine is good for you, as well as one beer per day or a small drink if that keeps you happy, but do not get wasted.
-Absolutely no smoking.
-Avoid fat food, fried food, junk food, French fries, mcd's, hotdogs, popcorn, butter and all that trash.
-limit meat consumption to once a week or two.
-No white bread.
The Positives: (daily consumption)
-Eat fresh garlic everyday - better at night so you won't kill people you talk to.
Cut the garlic 15 minutes prior to eating it, this will increase the active anti viral ingredients in it.
The more you eat, the better it is.
-Eat shiitake mushroom, 3-4 mushrooms per day.
-OD on fresh fruits and veggies as much as you can and in a wide variety, not only tomatoes and lettuce,- again, the more the better.
-Eat plenty of low fat protein and omega 3 - eggs, fish and seafood, chicken and turkey are better than red meat and pork.
-Drink plenty of water. The more, the better.
-Drink plenty of green tea.
-Use olive oil exclusively.
-Eat a lot of whole grain, high fiber, low fat products. Wasa crackers, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread etc.
-Nuts and almonds.
-Drink freshly squeezed juice of:one lemon combined with other fresh squeezed citrus (oranges, grapefruit.. ) every morning.
-Drink a cup of yogurt.
-Eat raw onion.
Supplements: (take recommended by manufacturer)
-Green tea extract.
-Royal jelly, bee propolis, bee pollen, honey.
-olive leaf oil.
-Mushroom capsules, shiitake and maitake, etc.
-Quantum -AntiViral Fomula.
-Black elderberry syrup.
Front 2: The external blitz:
Ever learned in school how the US ended the Second World War?
That's right, the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
And that's exactly what you should do to the warts you have down there.
-Burn them to ashes using the well described method of treating the warts with Apple Cider Vinegar. Repeat the procedure even after it seems as if they have vanished. You might find more white spots that you could not see before. Read more in this web site if you are new to this.
-treat the warts with a few drops of compound W liquid (get it in drug store). It will burn as hell but remember, if it is painful to you, it is painful to the GW as well.
A good trick will be to apply some ACV to reveal the white spots than apply Compound W to those white spots, it allows you a more accurate application.
The apply on's:
in between treatments apply the following:
Vitamin E, oregano oil (antiviral), a few propolis drops on the wart are good as well.
(I personally apply royal jelly as well but will leave that up to you)
-Shave the area to keep it dry and clean.
-apply foot powder to absorb sweat and keep cool and dry just as you do for your feet.
- take at least 2 showers a day. Am and pm.
- Get some Dead Sea salt, mustard powder, any therapeutic bath salt and deep in a nice soap bath full of salt. The more, the better. Feel free to add a few green tea bags to the hot water. This will cleanse up toxins from your skin.
- Use a sauna if you can.
- Use clean clothing and bed sheets at all times.
Front 3: The Spiritual level
In general, the less stressful you are, the happier you are, the more content and relaxed you are the better your health is and the better your immune system can respond and do it job.
-close your eyes and imagine that the warts goes away.
-take a walk around the block.
-get a pet.
-read and watch movies.
-listen to music.
-Be Happy - be committed to do things that makes you happy and ignore the bad stuff - there will always be some bad stuff around - remember, you are alive :))
You got to be consistent and repeat the above daily for a while. a year even. and even better, make it your life style.
You will see results and I promise, you will fee much better with your healthier body. you will loose weight too!
it worked for me!!! and I had a couple of big ugly ones.
I AM NOT A DOCTOR AND NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR PRIOR TO TRYING ANY OF THE ABOVE RECOMMENDATIONS."
11/29/2009: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, USA replies: "To Vincent V of NY, NY- you may not be a doctor but you are giving great advice! Better than most doctors- that's for sure. This advice sans the burning the hell out of the warts is good advice for living, period. Do you read Abraham-Hicks at all? Basically, the same, focus on the positive, thereby vibrating more positive. The negative will always be around. We can live life however we CHOOSE to live. Good for you for finding a better way! Keep on... Peace, Lisa"
11/30/2009: Vincent V. from New York, Ny replies: "Lisa, Thank you so much. its good to know that the vibe it out there. never heard of Abraham-Hicks but will check him out. anyway, thanks again for your awesome feedback! my email is stillnotlovinpolice/at/gmail.com
peace out, V."
04/28/2010: Steve from Kansas City, Missouri replies: "First of all I would like to say that this site is a good site and was helpful to me. There are 2 problems that I have with some of the posts here. 1) Most people who post here do so after their warts start to turn black and claim success. Few posts are from people who follow up with a new post months or a year later. My experience was that there are more warts than you initially think there are and you end up doing multiple treatments that can actually last a year or more. 18 months ago I thought I had 4 or 5 warts and it turned out to be 50 or more. Some came back, some grew new, some were not visible until I put ACV on them. I had to do 7 treatments in 18 months and now feel wart free so this does work. It is also a good idea to do these treatments on a regular maintenance schedule. Every 3 months or so just do a quick 2 day treatment and you will kill any of the new warts before they get big. You may need to do this for life. These treatments are quick and easy. 2 days of ACV and 3-4 days to heal.
I also had 2 variations of warts(2 strains of HPV I guess). One responded quickly to ACV treatment. The other type would grow big when ACV was used and would not turn black before my skin was completely trashed. What I did was to use ACV and when the wart got big I then froze it with OTC wart freeze treatment. I then applied ACV with a Q-tip rather than beat up all of the skin and a few days later the wart head fell off but nothing turned black so I continued to use ACV and after a few more days the things cratered and turned black. This crater took 2 weeks before it healed but the wart. A couple of months later I used ACV to find a few more of these buggers and this time I didn't wait until the top fell off. I froze them then the next day put ACV on it and cleaned with alcohol and after it dried I took my finger nail and ripped the suckers off and immediately hit it with ACV. They turned black the next day. It still took 2 weeks for these to heal but I did knock one week off the total treatment. I learned this from a post on this site.
The second problem I have is with some of the advice. For instance, someone has posted that you can't spread warts by shaving as long as you don't bleed. This is ridiculous. Warts shed the virus through the skin. You can't tell me that they can be spread by simple contact with them but a razor going over them won't spread them unless you slice into the wart???? That advice is completely over the top and incorrect. It's not even logical. Unfortunately, if you shave you should stop until you have cleared up the warts. So, don't believe everything you read here but mostly the advice is good.
Lastly, if you think that you have a few warts in one area and want to just treat that area initially, forget it. Your first treatment should be as large of an area as you can stand to do. Not only will you save alot of time by avoiding additional treatments, but you will also understand the extent of your problem rather quickly.
For multiple treatments: when you do a treatment with ACV you will lose layer(s) of skin. You have to wait a period of time to heal before you do another treatment. I have repeated a treatment in the same area in as little as 6 weeks and didn't have a problem. I would recommend 8-10 weeks for a large treatment area.
I also added some of the internal treatments as recommended on this site. I am taking black elder berry and green tea extract and added vitamin C, E, potassium, folic acid and pantotheric acid to my regular multi-vitamin. No new warts have been found since I started the internal treatments.
I now believe that I can live with HPV. I will add that when you first figure out that you have warts it will be a psychologic roller coaster. You will think that your life is over. Don't take 18 months like I did to get this taken care of. Hit it hard and fast with everything you learned from this site. If I knew then what I know now this would have taken 3-4 months rather than 18 months to resolve. For those of you who do one treatment and you're done, good for you. I have a feeling though that your "yippee this worked for me" posts were a little premature and most people will not be so lucky. For your first treatment, plan on 7-10 days for full healing. Additional maintenance treatments, plan on 5-7 days.
04/07/2011: Allison from New York, Ny replies: "I would like to say that Genital Warts CAN spread to different parts of the body. I know this comment was left a few years ago, and a lot of new research has been done. People are also sharing their experiences more and more. 15 years ago I was diagnosed with high risk HPV, and surgically had it removed. Then, about 2 years ago during a 3 year period of not being sexually active I got low level HPV, genital warts. After having them removed and using a lot of natural remedies I am feeling much better. However, I have recently been now diagnosed with HPV in my throat, caused through oral skin to skin contact; Oral Sexual Intercourse. They said it would be best to test it after it is removed to know which strand it it. Considering it is a Virus that can be dormant in your system, I think it is important to be aware that you CAN contract HPV in your throat, and often it attatches itself to your vocal chords. It is becoming a lot more common, and there is a lot of conflicting evidence out there. Even if it was dormant, it was spread through genital to mouth contact. Understand that HPV is still very abiguous, and sharing our personal experiences and remedies is most important. Be safe and aware of your bodies, and do not dismiss anything because we are afraid to talk about it. Thank you so much for this site. I am going to post an update and see what works best for my throat problem so that I don't have to get surgery!"
07/14/2011: Jim from Houston, Tx replies: "Hey guys, awesome advice with the ACV! Just a quick question..... Some background first: I noticed I had a growth on my shaft a few months ago and didn't think much of it. Finally, after realizing it wasn't going away or improving at all on its own, I turned to the Internet and came across this forum. I decided to try the Apple Cider Vinegar method before going buying any of the other treatments. I dabbed the wart with Apple Cider Vinegar using a qtip, then took an Apple Cider Vinegar soaked cottonball and put it on the wart and put a bandaid around it and left it on overnight. It turned white after the first application and after about 3 days, as I was dabbing the area with the qtip, the top layer of the wart came off with ease and another layer came off the next day.
It's been about a week now and I'm still doing the same treatment and the area is generally flat now (opposed to the raised wart). However, now there is a white ring around the outside of the area where the raised section was and where the layers peeled off, it is all dark yellow with a black spot in the middle and starting to turn black around the inner part of the white ring. I haven't scene much info on the warts turning yellow; mainly just white, then black, then fall off. My question is is this yellowing a normal part of the process and should I just continue with the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment until it falls off or is there something else that I should be doing? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you"
07/15/2011: Donna from Cape Coral, Florida replies: "That wart could very well be a sign of HPV. Please get checked by a doctor."
06/16/2010: Morin from Anaheim, Ca, United States: "Ok so I've had HPV for 6 months, both outside and inside my vag, as well as my asshole. I will explain in detail how I got rid of it (mostly inside since I didn't find too much info on it so had to come up with my own way of doing things). Ok symptoms, weird discharge and something bumped up on right below my vag, so I did the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) test, I soaked a cotton pad and put it in the area for an hour... and holy shit there were no less than 50 little bumps that came up. I FREAKED out. Researched and researched some more. First thing I did was quit smoking. This pest appeared after severe heart break, horrible eating habits, drinking and smoking.Plan of attack was to first take care of the outside area and then the inside. So I went to the grocery store got regular ACV, vitamin E gel tablets, and aspirin. made a paste of 3 crushed aspiring 1 vitamin E gel cap and enough ACV to make it into a nice paste and put it in all affected areas then put a long piece of cotton on it and then sort of tight full underwear to keep everything in place then to sleep, it burns but it calms down after a few minutes. During the day I would put the paste on again if I could, and if it wasn't possible I would break a vitamin e tablet and spread it around the area and then a panty liner.by the 3rd day everything was starting to scab and by the 4th all the scabs were falling off. woohooo super happy. Then it was time to attack inside here it took months of trial and error. The way I finally beat it was I started taking folic acid pills 10 mg in the morning and 10mg at night, then started eating plain yogurt, it was helping the strange discharge but it wasn't that much better, then I got brave and this is when everything finally worked. I got a nasal aspirator put half the content tap water and half ACV I layed on my shoulders and with my feet planted down lifted my hips, and put the content in my vag and held it in for an hour 3 times a day. By the 3rd day the bumps in my vagina were gone, but the odor and discharge weren't fully so then in the shower I used the nasal aspirator and put half hydrogen peroxide and half regular tap water, while standing I squirted it inside my vag and held on to the liquid for 2 or 3 minutes and then let it all out. By the time I got out of the shower it seemed a lot better, and then I put yogurt in my vag and went to sleep. The next morning I showered and got all the yogurt out. At night everything smelled and looked back to normal. I deuched with hydrogen peroxide and water every other day and then less and less, and whenever I felt like there was any odor or change of discharge I did the hydrogen peroxide. I know you feel like the world is coming to an end... but its not. You'll get better if you believe in what you're doing, do your research and slowly find your way. Any questions I am here to help :)"
[YEA] 02/13/2012: Sadtosayigotit from Austin, Texas: "I recently found a cluster of "skin" tags right where the "taint" area is and it looked like a step ladder to my anus area. The skin was white and it just disgusted me. I hadn't been careful (stupid me) and I have an idea of who gave me this "gift".
I knew what I had was either herpes, or warts, but when I did research it didn't sound like herpes at all. True it wasn't as bad as the HPV pics I saw, but I knew that I had to have that. Well I don't know how I got here but I found this site this weekend, and figured hell I have organic ACV. So I've started.
When I'm home I soak cotton balls in Apple Cider Vinegar and apply directly to the spot, I can't use a band aid because they area they are is weird. But I clench that area closed tight for at least an hour.
Right now it's burning. But I can take it. During the day I use a asprin, ACV, vit E, and an essential oil and make a past apply to the area and go to work. You can't smell the mix, but I can bare dealing with it all day.
Just after one day I was able to take a bath wash the area and 2 warts have dislodged themselves already. I have about 4-6 more. I'm hoping that in 2 weeks everything will be gone.
Please try it! I didn't think it would work for me, but it is!!!"
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 09/11/2010: Bee-sting from D Bush, Miami, Florida: "Hello everyone. I contracted GW from my X boyfriend and they scared the life out of me, but not all hope is lost. ACV on its own does help alot, most of my warts fell off, but now, there seems to be more, little ones though and one big one. I recently started the paste method (aspirin, vitamin e & ACV). It stings like a bee sting btwn my butt cheeks. The big one has been discharging a yellow liquid, and bleeding, is this normal at all?"
[YEA] 11/23/2009: Chionlynx from Pawtucket, Ri: "Hi there. I couldn't wait to get to my computer this morning. Last week I discovered to my horror (having never had an STD before!) that I had genital "that w word"...ok I'll say it...warts! I'm learning this is fairly common, but the negative stigma is hard to overcome, and the emotional upset is real.
This weekend I tried the crushed aspirin (325mg), ACV and Vit E oil paste with VERY good results. Into the crushed aspirin I dropped in a little ACV at a time until it turns into a nice pasty paste, not too runny. Then add about a TBSP of Vit e oil. I applied it twice on Saturday, and once on Sunday for 30 minutes at a time. On Saturday, inbetween paste treatments, I used a cotton ball to dab on a mixture of Elderberry and Green Tea extract (30 drops each). This also burned like hell, but the burning does subside after a six or so minutes. For the 30minute segments of each treatment (not fun!!), I would try to lie down and stay still, breathe deeply, watch TV... or meditate on the fact that the burning is a good thing...removing those warts!
I've read many of the comments on here...and I think people who are suffering with pain and horrible sores after the treatment, are leaving it on for too long! I was also very raw after the first paste treatment, but I took care of the area diligently with two drops of Tea Tree Oil in a little water (dab it on with rolled some toilet paper, or large cotton ball), followed by a healthy dose of Vit E oil. My round hand held mirror became my best friend!! After the ACV paste treatments, the warts will turn white and it's quite shocking to see how many there actually are! Don't be afraid because the whiteness also means they got dosed with vinegar which is a good thing! During the day, esp after "potty" time, I'd clean up with a little Hydrogen Peroxide, and then the Vit E oil. Don't over do the Tea Tree Oil.
Today is Monday. I feel like a new woman this morning. I feel consideraby better, both physically and mentally. And for the first time in a long time, I feel "normal" down there! (Some of the areas are still red and a little raw, but the swelling and itch has gone away!) Thanks to all of you for the advice and open sharing on this site. I'm a professional woman, with good habits...this can happen to anyone, there's no shame in any of it!! Don't wait til things get bad. Stay on it. There's hope. Trust and believe.
I also plan to see my doctor, for a pap smear and check up. (But I'm not sure I'll be taking any prescription meds at this time).
Oh, and I've also started taking a multi vitamin, Vit C, Echinacea, 40 drops of Olive Leaf extract (3xdaily) (blech tasting). The Olive Leaf is a good antiviral. This is all to boost the immune system.
I only have one remaining issue... and that's the discharge. I'm not sure if there's anything one can do to combat that???? Anyone?
[YEA] 08/08/2009: Lotus_flower from Bentonville, Ar, USA: "I am a nurse, and I just found out I have GW from HPV. I went to the doctor and I was prescribed a topical acid. First of all, that with insurance cost me 130 dollars, and I damn near passed out. But, I wanted the GW gone and probably would have paid anything. I began the treatment as directed. It burns and it is imperative not to get any on the healthy skin, which is difficult and adds to the anxiety of the whole thing. After a month and a half, it had worked-but it wasn't all gone. After reading on this site about ACV, I thought I really can't go wrong-I've waited over a month, been in pain for a while. I went to the store and got the following: vitamin E oil, pure tea tree oil, 325 mg aspirin and apple cider vinegar.
Make a paste with the ACV and aspirin. I had eyeballed it to make the right consistency. Add a few drops of vitamin E to the mix with a dropper. Apply it to the area and leave it on for a half hour and try it twice a day. You can apply tea tree oil all day if you want-it has penetrating power and the best part: takes away pain!!
I did the other treatment for a month and a half, and the result was sorta better-for 130 dollars.
I did the ACV treatment 3 times, and the area is COMPLETELY CLEAR after 3 treatments-for 10 dollars.
This doesn't harm healthy skin, and there's hardly any uncomfortable moments. I didn't think it would work, I admit. I was wrong, way wrong! I can't wait to go to the doctor in 2 days-he'll tell me that the treatment worked, and I get to say, "I have a confession...it was ACV!" I'm sure the look on his face will be priceless!
Hang in there all, there IS hope!! :)"

05/26/2013: Lloyd from Charlotte, Nc replies: "Colloidal silver kills viruses. Use a high ppm. Take orally and apply topically. The fact that it is on the face makes it likely the virus is systemic. You may have to take the silver for six months to completely get rid of it. I'd take two tablespoons daily on empty stomach. Apply topically with a cloth, letting it act like a poultice. Squirt inside with a syringe."

05/26/2013: September-scholar from Fort Worth, Tx, Usa replies: "I am not sure of any suitable natural remedies for genital warts, but I do know from personal experience that you must take care of them immediately. I was treated with a product called podophyllin. You can actually find the product on line or something similar called podophyllum. Both originate from the same resin. Podophyllin has been the treatment of choice since the 40's. Today they may laser them off. However, time truly is of the essence here. Hopefully you can find it on line OR get to a Dr. that can administer it.
Best of luck to you."
[YEA] 06/12/2013: Sorelieved from Anonymous: "I just want to say ACV + aspirin works!!!
God bless the person who first posted it, and thank you thank you thank you!!!
I found some genital warts at my labia, and was frantic to get them off! I tried ACV, tea tree, castor oil to no effect and finally did a mixture of a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and about 5 dispersible low dose aspirins. I dabbed the mixture onto a small piece of cotton and placed it on the wart, thn covered it with a bigger piece of cotton soaked in castor oil and tea tree oil.. Left it overnight. It stung a bit, but it's quite bearable, like an itch
The next day the wart had swelled up with little pointy white peaks... I repeated the treatment and on the second day the wart was a bit sore, slightly swollen and seems to have flattened out a bit, on the 4th day of the treatment... The wart had turned white and was sore/itchy...on the 5th day, as I was washing down there I gently pinched the wart between my fingers (no nails) to try to see if any white bits would flake off.. And to my great shock and delight the entire wart just came off!
I am so happy! I'm repeating the treatment a few more days just to ensure all the wart cells are removed!
Bless you again!"
05/07/2013: Jenny from Buffalo, NY: "This is more of a question I suppose and hopefully someone will have some advice. Three months ago I noticed a couple bumps down there. I knew they were genital warts. I was diagnosed with HPV years ago just never had an outbreak. I'm trying to stay as positive as I possibly can... When I first found out I had them my aunt (who had one before and got it burned off and it never returned) made me feel extremely better. Went to the doctor, had the small cluster burned off and left thinking that I'll never have to deal with it again. I started taking multi vitamins and red algae supplements to boost my metabolism. Well, they're back and worse than before. They have moved from the opening of my vagina to my butt... How embarrassing. I tried for a couple days the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment because immediately after I had the warts burnt off I felt a bump and the Apple Cider Vinegar really irritated my skin since well I just had it burned off. I noticed this paste I could make... Question is, mine is a little thick and kind of clumps when I apply. Is this normal or should I make it more "liquidy" ? I hope this works I've been trying my best to take care of my body... Eating healthier, exercising more, taking vitamins which I've now added c vitamin (all together taking one multi vitamin, c vitamin, and the red algae)... Please help. I want to get back to dating and I feel like I never will with this....."Replies
05/26/2013: Fringo from Boston, Ma, United States replies: "Question: I noticed a bump I thought was always there (along the ridge of the scarring from when I was circumcized forever ago) - the skin there has always been rigid since I was a baby. I'm still not sure whether or not it's a wart, but I kind of thought it was. I put ACV on it for two consecutive nights, but no results & it never stung. I've had ACV, Crushed Aspirin, and Castor oil mixed into a paste and put on the bump - it's been there for an hour and it doesn't hurt/sting in the least bit like everyone says. Does this mean it's probably not even a wart?"
[YEA] 01/24/2012: Happy In Canada from Windsor, Ontario: "I was devastated when I found out I had genital warts, just three small ones on the vaginal opening. I felt dirty and ashamed, even though I do not sleep around. I came across this site yesterday and was reading about the paste that people were using. I decided to give it a try last night. I ground up 4 aspirins, a teaspoon of castor oil, and a few drops of apple cider vinegar. I painted the paste on to the three warts with an ear cotton bud, and went to sleep. This morning they had completely turned white, and even when I showered, they stayed the same. Anyway I went to work, and later in the day went for a pee, and on the tissue was a couple of bits of wart!!! I was soooooo happy.
Then this evening, I decided to get the mirror and look to see what was going on, well, I couldn't believe my eyes, two warts were gone, and the last one was hanging off too!!! So now, I am a little swollen, but the skin looks normal again.
I am so very happy to have found this site, and I wanted to let you all know, that this paste really does work. I didnt want to use 40 asprin like many said to use, coz I only had 3 small warts. I realise that they may come back again, but I will be ready as soon as I see them, to zap them. So again, thank you to who ever came up with the idea, I am so very grateful, and you will be too!"
[YEA] 09/13/2011: Fromasia from Somewhere, Inasia: "I'm Asian , I live in Asia and two months ago I noticed I had somelike pimples on my vagina area I was like Oh this must be just pimples or something so I scratched them so hard! Bleeding and they were bigger and bigger and spread around that area I must do something! I searched on the internet about it in my language! I swear no one in my country posted any useful things or talked about ACV, they all just knew Aldara and most of them went to the hospital but I was very ashamed and I tried searching things in English! I found this site! I felt so much better when I just read and havnt tried anything yet :D I was so down I thought life was about to end and Why me! I got myself sick but then we need to fight with it!
I got 3-4 GW on the opening of my vagina I got a very very big and fleshy one from my research I was sure I didnt want to try ACV alone :D it must be too painful so I tried it with Crushed Aspirin, Castor oil and ACV, Nice paste to just put them on your warts then they'll turn white and then grey and black and fell off!! I was so happy when I saw them fell off! Dont pull them I did everything very gently and make it clean! I always cleaned my vagina with hydrogen peroxide. They would fall off within a week [more or less] after that you can use any nice cream to heal your wound, I used Aloe vera gel [pure one] they looked better in two days became pink and all good :D I promised myself if this worked I would write down my story here and translated many many stuffs into my language and post one in my language too! This is gonna be very useful! ACV is not in every store like in the US but lucky me I live in the city.
Good luck everyone
Thanks this site and Thanks God I Know English- I might end up worse if I didnt know English . You just need to fight with them."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 08/05/2009: Gwonme from Cincinnati, Oh: "I used a paste of 40 crushed aspirin, 1/2 tblspn each of tea tree oil and Castor oil, and 1 tblspn of ACV. I applied liberally to the bumps, covered and left for two hours. I cleaned the area and reapplied then slept. In the morning I cleaned it and many of the spots were turning white/gray or had fallen off during cleaning. I left the area clean for about 5 hours then applied some Vit E oil, slept on that. The second morning I reapplied the paste to areas that did not appear to be cleared up. That afternoon I cleaned the area. Almost all the spots were gone, but the area was raw and bleeding. I applied a combo of Vit E and Tea Tree oil. The rawness started to heal, but then I notice these small blisters that were full of clear fluid. They started off few and small, now (5 days after I began treatment) they are many and huge. They hurt extremely bad. I have to sleep with a pillow between my knees and urinating is very painful. It hurts to sit, walk, or shift positions in my seat. I am still applying the Vit E and Tee Tree Oil in hopes that those will help. Are these "blisters" part of the healing process? What are they? It's gross, but if I pop them it alleviates the pain enough to make it only unbearable, which is an improvement. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was the outcome?"Replies

10/16/2009: Bing from Atlanta, Ga replies: "I have had GW for about 4 months now. I really have not been treating them because i thought the doctor was the only way and I have no insurance. I came across another website recently and saw the ACV method and I think I need to be in a coma for that (it hurt so bad I didn't make it more than 2 1/2 min the first and only time I tried it). Then I heard about using gentian violet. This was ok. It didn't burn but it works so slowly and where ever I put it it stains my skin a wonderful shade of violet. So I am getting ready to try the acv paste. I hope this works outbetter.
Oh yeah, I finally got up the nerve to talk to some one about it (my sister) and she said she had it before. She said that Olive leaf extract (orally) does wonders for keeping them away once they are gone. I did some research and Olive Leaf extract is one of the most potent antivirals on earth. Im gonna try some of the liquid in my paste and see what happens."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/31/2011: Brwneyegypsy from North Carolina replies: "Well just wanted to say I have HPV and the warts were gettting out of hand, and was just awful!! I stated noticing they were all around my Vagina..... I tried the ACV alone and it burned, and stung and I sucked it up til I couldnt stand the pain anymore. After letting myself heal for a couple weeks I went to walmart and got the castor oil and asprin....... Castor oil is cheap and easy to find there....... I mixed up 40 crushed asprin, 1 and half tsp of castor oil, and 1 teaspoon of ACV....... It was not painful and was easy to sleep....... I left it on all night, and then when I got up the next morning, I washed it off and just put castor oil over the spots for comfort and it also stops oxygen from getting to the spots as they need that to grow. I am in my second week using this method of on my days off using the mixture at night, and the spots are half gone!! They are coming out when I wipe and shower one at a time but I will take that verses having them sit there and make me feel uncomfortable in my own skin........... THANK YOU so much for posting how to mix this stuff up it is ALOT less painful, and is working wonders!!"
[YEA] 05/09/2011: Leslie from Usa, South Carolina replies: "I did something similar... I mixed 40 aspirin, 1 and 1/2 tsp of castor oil and 1 and 1/2 tsp of vinegar... I applied it... And it burned SOOOO bad! So I ended up washing it off within 30 minutes. However, when I took a bath that night, a lot of the warts came off. So, I rested the second day. I didn't apply anything.
On the 3rd day, I made a new paste, 40 aspirin, 2 tsps of castor oil and 1 tsp of vinegar... It still worked but not as good and it didn't burn, so I'll take it. Then that night, I added in some echinacea (I broke the capsule and poured the powder in) and the results were even better. After a total of applying the new paste with echinacea 2 times, the warts are SO much better! They are hardly noticeable. Tonight, I put coconut oil on my genitals to help give it a rest, because I'm sure it's tired of these harsh mixtures! After two days of coconut oil, I'm going to go in for the kill. I'll come back with results!"
10/01/2012: Factoflife from Burbank, California, USA replies: "Hi I just wanted to share my experience with ACV.
Unpasteurized ACV- anything else is garbage. You need to get RAW, ORGANIC, UNPAUSTURIZED, UNFILTERED Apple Cider Vinegar that contains 'The Mother'. Dont waste your time and money with anything other than ____ brand.
First of all, DRINK IT, 3 times a day before every meal. Mix 2 teaspoons in a 8oz glass of water. The virus is alive in your body not just on your private parts, attack it not just from the outside but also from the inside. ACV will balance your pH level and clean out your insides while strengthening your immune system.
Also take vitamins, I personally have been taking Vitamin E (for skin) and Vitamin C (for immune system). I take 1, 000mg of vitamin E and 500mg of vitamin C after my first meal and then another 500mg of vitamin C after my second meal. Taking vitamins is important because most of us are not getting the proper nutrition our bodies need from the processed food we eat. Most food nowadays is garbage purely eaten to satisfy our hunger. It is important that the vitamins you are taking are not processed bullshit like centrum or flinstones. Go to an actual health store and spend the extra money on real vitamins.
Now to clean your private parts and get rid of the genital warts on your [penis] (sorry ladies), heres what I do. I take a big glass or cup (preferrably see-through), you basically want a glass or cup that is big enough to fit your scrotum and penis and still have room in there. Fill the glass up about 1/3 of the way with ACV. Then stick your [penis] and [scrotum] into the cup and press it against your genital area so that no ACV is going to leak out. There should be enough ACV in the cup that your penis and [scrotum] are submerged and completely surrounded by ACV (sort of like an ACV bath for your genitals). It will burn, suck it up, you are doing no serious damage to yourself, you are cleansing yourself. If the pain is extremely unbearable you can try mixing in a little water with the ACV or doing it 5-10 minutes at a time and then taking a break. I personally do it for 30 minutes straight every day with maybe 1 or 2 breaks inbetween to refill the cup with more ACV. If you are doing it correctly you will notice the warts turn white/gray. You might even notice MORE warts only because some are not visible to the naked eye, but they can not get past the ACV. That is why I dont waste my time with cotton balls, they do not cover enough area and the reality of the situation is that you have more warts than you can visibly notice, that is why I submerge my whole genital area in ACV, have NO mercy on your penis, it is DIRTY in places and ways you can not see or imagine. I did this for 3 days straight and my warts have all turned black (which means they are dead) and they will fall off in the shower when they are ready to go. Please be warned that your skin will become raw and you might face some discomfort. After the 3rd day my skin was so raw and felt so uncomfortable that I had to take a break from my treatment in order to let my skin heal. There might be some scabbing/scarring, its no big deal compared to having warts on your dick the scarring/scabbing will heal fast than the warts. Also take notice that because these warts are gone doesnt mean you are done, you WILL get more, so make it a ritual to wash your genitals with ACV.
The last thing I want to add is that you are indeed UNHEALTHY, please, please take care of yourself and your body. Change your diet: EAT ORGANIC. Get proper sleep: 8 hours a day. EXCERCISE: At the very least go for a 30 minute walk everyday, get sunlight. BE CLEAN: If your are dirty or sweaty down there take a shower immediately and dry off properly before putting clothes on, Its important to note that most soaps are not going to help the situation rinse thoroughly with water and avoid using a lot of soap down there. WEAR A CONDOM (NO EXCUSES!!). && STOP SMOKING AND DRINKING : ). And please DO NOT STRESS OUT!!! It is a fact that about 80-85% of all people are going to get HPV before they die so welcome to the club big guy, this is the most common STD out there!! After about 2 years you should notice no more serious symptoms BUT this virus is for life so like I said wear a condom because even if you have no noticeable warts you will pass this virus on to the next person.
one thing I forgot to mention, if you are 21 or younger go get an HPV shot, there are tons of strains of HPV, luckily the ones that produce genital warts are not cancerous but there are strains out there that will give you cancer and you can be contaminated with more than 1 strain at a time, so get the SHOT!!
I think the most important thing to take out of this experience is to wear a condom, there are worse conditions out there mainly HIV. Realize that too much of a good thing (sex) is a bad thing (sin: lust). You might not believe in god or karma but this is a lesson from a higher power which you must take notice or expect worse things to happen. WEAR A CONDOM, infact, encourage everyone you know to always wear a condom. I give them out to my friends all the time and I always tell them to wear a condom (I wish I had a friend like myself when I became sexually active).
Good luck, and wear a condom : )"
10/28/2012: Jay from Orlando, Florida replies: "Pure tea tree oil is very strong and will cause skin to peel and possibly bleed if too much is used. I have found that the tea tree oil can help but it is better to buy something that is already pre mixed so it is not pure. With warts you don't want the area to bleed it will spread. Wait for area to heal then use Apple Cider Vinegar mixture paste. Warts will turn white leave on for like an hour. Don't use for again for at least 3 days it is too hard on skin and can irritate and make spread if used more. Just wait they will turn red then dark peel or fall of within three days then you can repeat when sufficiently healed."
