Apple Cider Vinegar Remedy for Genital Warts
Folk Cure Ingredients
- Apple Cider Vinegar
An exceedingly popular remedy, apple cider vinegar (ACV) can be a very effective wart treatment within just a few days. Simply soak a cotton ball in ACV and apply to the genital warts. For a more intense treatment, you can also use a band-aid to hold the cotton to the wart for a few hours at a time. ACV is okay for internal use, though there will be significant discomfort at first.
[YEA] 03/12/2009: YAY to ACV from Much Better, NY: "This site's such a blessing! It's amazing how well ACV's been working, I'm so happy I'm trying this remedy vs medical treatments that odds are won't make me better.
I developed what I thought was a skin tag over a month ago. Went to the doctor who said it could be either a tag or a wart (which was the furthest thing from my mind). My pap & cultures both came back negative so I didn't give it another thought. But when the original small tag started spreading out a little I began to worry. Soon after another bumpish looking thing started to grow next to it. Both were in the crease of where my thigh meets my groin. Now I've been online looking at pics of genital warts & none matched what I had. Now it's been a month--Saturday I decided to do the white vinegar which I know can cause false positives but I needed to know. Sure enough both bumps turned white and surprisingly more white bumps showed up. Also, once I applied the white vinegar the first bumps looked more like the online pics. The white vinegar really did draw out the wartish side of these things. I could clearly identify 5 warts... as of now thanks to ACV 3 are gone & I'm working on the last 2 (one's the first wart that I thought was a tag, it's stubborn as hell but breaking down more and more each day).
After reading other testimonies here's my wart kit
- tea tree oil
- Mederma and aloe vera gel alternately
- paper tape
- half a Q-tip
- hydrogen peroxide
- positive attitude
There was a lot of trial & error with taping the ACV-treated cotton to my skin. So I went out and got first aid paper tape. It's easier to adhere and comes off much easier than using a band aid. Next thing I did was use Q-tips instead of cotton. I broke the Q-tip in half, dipped it in the ACV and taped it over my warts.
ACV burned my good skin pretty badly. I'm using Mederma and think I'll be fine in a week or two. I'm also using aloe vera gel in between. Tried my Vitamin E oil but it's so thick.
The 3 that are gone never turned black but stayed white (1 turned whitish-gray). I never picked, pulled or tugged. One came off in the shower and I think the other 2 just fell away. I continue to apply tea tree oil to those areas to make triple sure that nothing grows back.
One wart that appeared on my vulva was trickier. I tried dabbing ACV over it nightly because it burned too bad to keep ACV on it longer than 10 seconds. But after 4 days there was little improvement and actually took on the cauliflower look. Deciding to step it up I knew I had to have the ACV on overnight. Using my Q-tip/tape method worked and I just kept my legs closed and went to bed. IT BURNED LIKE HELL but I breathed through it !!! Woke up with some broken skin on my vulva where the ACV burned through. Skin's so sensitive in that area so this isn't entirely a surprise. Thanks to another post I put hydrogen peroxide over the area then used Neosporin since it's has antibiotic properties. But the good news is that in one night it looks diminished and my main concern is to treat that broken skin since I don't want it to develop into an infection.
So here's my process that has evolved over the past 5 days. At night when I come home from work I take a shower. I dry off and put some hydrogen peroxide on some cotton. I squat over a mirror and clean the warty areas. They turn white but that's what's supposed to happen. I follow up with tea tree oil and apply it to pretty much my outer vagina but paying close attention to the old wart/newer wart areas. I give myself a break and fix dinner etc. At night I break a Q-tip in half and dip it in ACV then tape it to the warts. Good night.
I take another shower in the morning. I dry off and squat over a mirror and do the cotton/hydrogen peroxide application. I let it dry and apply Mederma but to the good skin only (that burned from the white vinegar on Saturday). I don't use ACV or tea tree oil because it's so strong and I don't want to go work smelling.
This is a process and requires tons of patience!!! But stick with it. If it burns let it!!! That means the ACV is working. I can say that the warts that got the Q-tip/tape are gone and the ones I was dabbing are still hanging around. I am getting more aggressive but don't want to tear my vagina up. I think I'm going to take a day off from ACV today/tonight. I will report back with hopefully 100% wart-free news!!!
Take what you can from previous posts but you'll find a process that works for you in time especially if you have stubborn warts.
I haven't had sex with anyone for a while and don't know why these warts appeared. But I can tell you that at this point it's a moot question. I'm not going back to those relationships and I want to get my vaginal health together so this won't affect future relationships. I'm deciding on celibacy for the time being so I can heal and give HPV a chance to prayerfully disappear. I know it's a virus but I also know that in a year or 2 it may clear out on its own. I pray for everyone's good health and am very grateful for everyone's posts. I read all previous posts and there was so much great advice. I hope my post can be helpful to someone too.
Lastly, here's what I remember
- Wash your hands frequently!! I'm so paranoid about spreading these nasty things that even if I think about them I feel like I should get up and wash my hands!
- Spray out the crotch of my pants with Lysol before putting them in the laundry
- Wash wash rags, towels and pantyhose with bleach and if not colorsafe then ammonia or vinegar. Let them pre-soak first but don't soak anything in bleach too long.
- Clean your bathroom or wherever you're treating yourself every day!! I am extremely conscious of keeping this space clean. Spray it down with Lysol. You should also be conscious of when you touch your bottles of tea tree oil, ACV etc. I always use clean hands but take the extra step of spraying down my bottles etc. with Lysol.
- Don't feel bad!! This is a problem that thanks to ACV can be treated. Be patient and be very thankful that it isn't worse regardless of how many warts you have. Persevere, get healthy and get over it :)"
03/12/2009: YAY to ACV from Much Better, NY replies: "I forgot to add that I have 2 teenaged daughters and have made an appointment for them to get the Gardisil vaccine. I don't want them to go through what I am going through with this strain of HPV. Being out of a relationship for so long, no sex for over a year, this came as such a surprise. I don't want them to think that just because they have ended a relationhip they can't be surprised with a situation like this or worse. I'll return with any updates to my situation!"
03/15/2009: YAY to ACV from Much Better, NY replies: "The external warts are GONE! I can not believe it! The most stubborn one is gone too and what is left is a small open wound that I'm treating with neosporin. The one on my vulva is gone too but now I'm treating the burned skin with neosporin. I also added castor oil with tea tree oil to help healing and prevent more from coming. I do believe that I have internal ones too but I am reluctant to use ACV in my vagina. I am afraid that it will burn too much if I don't dilute it well and could leave scarring. I am searching for natural remedies as I read that certain heartburn remedies could help. I am also going back to my doctor for advice. All told it took one week for the ACV to get rid of my external warts (good skin and the old wart areas still healing) and I am deeply grateful to you folks for sharing your ACV stories and advice! Keep hopeful and stay healthy! I will provide an update about the internal ones too :)"
03/10/2009: Overthis from Phx, Az: "So, after finding out I had HPV, I was feeling exactly as if life was over. My Doctor explained that HPV is treatable & that usually your own immune system rids you of symptoms within a year or twoo. That was a relief but the gw's still bothered me. They first showed up around the the anus, even tho I have never had that type of sex. Soon, I noticed a few small ones on the right labia & one on the small piece of skin at the opening to my vagina. I was freaked! The doctor gave me Aldara, but I just saw to many horror stories about & wanted to see what else could treat them besides medications, burning, or laser. I came across this site & I will say it was nice to see other people in my situation. So, I tried the ACV & Tea tree oil, plus vitamin D. The first day, I cleaned the area well, placed cotton balls with the acv & left them on for an hour, there was no burning. I rinsed the area & applyed the tea tree oil, which was soothed the slight itch. The 2nd day, I left it on an hour & a half. There was still slight burning for a few minutes, then the itch was worse, but the oil helped again. I stopped to give my skin a break & on the 4th day, another hour. There was more burning this time but it was tolerable. This time once I removed the cotton balls, I wiped the entire are with acv & put vitamin d & tea tree oil on. That night after showering, the ones near my anus rubbed off & the one at the entrance to my vagina & small ones on lip had shrinked. I have waited 2 more days with just using the tea tree oil & vitamin d. The area is not irrated or sore. So tonight will be my forth treatment. Hopefully they will all be gone in the next few days. I would recommend that if you have sensitive skin to give it a few days rest between treatments if you notice a lot of irritataion. This cure will still work! I know its hard when you want to be rid of the warts but its worth it to have no acid burns & pain. Also, I noticed on here, most people said their warts turned black or gray & then fell off. But, mine did not do anything but change to white, hen soften & just started disolving. So, don't worry if you don't get them black, gray or any other color. Everyones different. Good luck to all! I will update, as far as if they rest are gone & how long it takes."Replies
03/12/2009: Jackie from Bristol, UK replies: "Hi I have read a lot of posts about G.Warts because I found I had them a while back. many years ago 35 in fact I was treated for them - no problem they vanished within a few days. I was amazed people were having so much trouble with them and were obviously very upset. I tried garlic and ACV didn't work for me/bought cream on the net expensive and didn't work. Ended up going to a clinic and they gave me Aldara it worked within a week. It apparently works with the immune system and will get rid of the warts that are internal and difficult to treat by other methods. I experienced no side effects unlike garlic and ACV which both hurt and smelt! The staff told me they rarely have had anyone experience side effects. Believe me I am all for natural cures but sometimes drugs do work without side effects. We get this free in the UK and I realise it is expensive elsewhere but if you can't find anything to work give it a try."
[YEA] 03/15/2009: Overthis from Phoenix, Arizona replies: "Heres my update! 6 days of using the ACV, Tea Tree Oil & Vitamin E. Every single wart is gone! The entire area has healed & there are no new signs of any new warts. I know this is no guarantee that I couldn't have a relapse & get more but I am glad there is a treatment that will get rid of them."
[YEA] 03/07/2009: Tracy from Somewhere, IL: "I've been dealing with GW since I was diagnosed in December with having two and the dr applied tc acid to them. Each month another couple seem to show up and we have been doing the tc method, which is taking forever and making me miss several days off of work for the appointments. I wanted to try Aldera, but the dr kept putting me off on giving a prescription. When I did more research on Aldara, I found out why...which further research lead me to this website. I started to treat my GWs with the ACV two days ago. In doing so, I also had noticed a small white bump right in the v of my top lip and it got me to wondering if the hpv could have been spread to my mouth through oral. I applied the treatment to my lips to see if anything white would show up and and low and behold I seen a couple areas at the corners of my mouth and the surrounding areas that showed patches of little pin head sized cluters ... so if you are participating in oral, there's a chance you might want to check your mouth also just to be on the safe side. I'm starting to gargle and also do a shot of the ACV along with all the other recommended vitamins from this site. I sure have learned a very valueable lesson and quite frankly am petrified to with with anyone else again unless I am certain they are STD free. I sure hope to be done with this ordeal soon and sure wish they would come up with something for the general population that could combat and protect against this nasty virus. It's pretty devastating... Best of luck to everyone."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/07/2009: David from Cincinnati, Ohio: "ACV vs Anal Warts: I am so happy to finally have stumbled upon this site. Back in early 07 I started noticing these skin tag looking things appear on my left side of my groin. Thinking they where skin tags and didnt bug me I let them be. So after about a year or so I said to myself time to rid of these thinking they where skin tags I just made everything worse. They had actualy spread down to my anal area. So I said time to go see the doctor. He identified them as Genital Warts and sent me to a dermatologist. First visit all I can say is ouch 4 injections and then cut them off with a blade then took what looked like a torch to my skin to burn skin back together. As for the anal ones tho sent me to a anal surgeon and they gave me aldara, no luck with it at all. Said I would need surgery and need to be knocked out. So after a week and they still have not contacted me about the surgery I took matters in my own hands and stumbled upon this site. And boy am I glad I just started the treatment last night (tried to keep the gauze soaked in acv in over night but it burned to much) so i took it out and went back to sleep woke up to shower and even tho ive yet to figure out a way to get a view of the area they felt smaller and feel differnt now granted I am still really sore from last night so ive yet to reapply but I picked some tree tee oil and vitamin e up to speed up the healing back there so I can reapply. My question is can I put the tea tree oil and acv on at the same time? I want to do treatments daily but after last night keeping it in atleast 4-5 hours I woke up in pain and today even after 2 showers still hurts? Any advice woudl be greatly appretiated."
03/04/2009: Ron from CHI, IL: "Ive been using ACV caused severe dry skin. made almost half of my penis all white where there were no sign of any bumps whatsoever. once skin returned back to normal color there were a bunch of black / brownish lines in that area. Did make one wart turn black after the 2nd acv application.
Any how was just wondering what was going on?
also how is that the HPV knows where to go in the body. For example. How does the genital wart strain know to stay in the genital region. and how does the rest know to stay else where. makes me question the who virus. Its obvious and clear that the virus is real and the warts definitely pop up in the genital region. But there are cases of virgins (even NUNS) having genital warts so im wondering how transmission is possible.
I also read up on TUMERIC. It seems like that would be a good supplement to use for any skin condition.
I may be wrong but a good whey protien mix would also prove some help for over all health garlic, tumeric, castor oil, tea tree oil , peroxide, witch hazel and the infamous ACV seem like a good thing to always keep on hand.
Ive also read some people with herpes useng CARMEX maybe that would be a good thing to use once the wart has scabbed.
There is also a tatoo oil called miracle oil that can be found at earthlybody.com this is not a plug this oil has hemp oil, tea tree oil and a list of skin conditioning oils.
ONe more thing ABREVA , they use it for herpes on the lips / cold sores and fever blisters i dont see why it wouldnt help spot treatment of WARTS.
these are just ideas that people havnt suggested and i thought i would mention."

03/03/2009: R from HOPING FOR A CURE, AMERICA replies: "Just wondering after the ACV treatment who how long was it until your next wart/s popping up? Obviously ACV just takes the outside appearance of the virus away but does it really trigger an immune response that cures the warts/virus?
can some one you give some times between treatment and next out break?
I treated myself with vinegar and nail filer to sand away the skin and allow the vinegar to do its job more accuratley
that was 4 months ago and some little ones just popped back up.
ive treated myself a number of times in the past 4 years after finding my 1st one.
the 1st one i had i thought was an ingrown hair because i trim up down there. but it kept getting bigger and bigger. about the size of a pencil eraser.
so i bought some cream and it got rid of it. never had one that was bigger than crumb (sorry for lack of example) ever sense but figured id get em while there small. because that big one was no joke treating. took almost 3 months to complete the whole treatment.
basically i get a few popping up every 3 to 4 months. with maybe 6 months being the longest.
my immune system probably sucks. but i hardly ever get sick. i work out 3 times a week and i drink protien shakes and eat pretty good. but could eat healthier. if i could stay away from pizza."
03/03/2009: R from HOPING FOR A CURE, AMERICA: "Out of all these responses about apple cider vinegar how many of you had another outbreak after treatment? I see alot of people say good things about ACV treatment but no one says how long they have been wart free.
Im not a doctor but if all you want to do it get rid of the warts and trigger an immune response by your body i would think that clipping the warts off with nail clippers and then applying ACV or tea tree oil on the wound. OF course you will be bleeding alot so i guess you could always heat up a piece of metal and burn the flesh after to trigger your body to go into defense mode.
ive also seen people burn the warts with stick incense . makes sense to me also!!
I guess what im trying to say and what im wanting to know is once you to the ACV treatment what are your chances to be wart free again. and for how long?"
[YEA] 02/28/2009: Shelby from New York, NY: "About 6 weeks ago, i noticed 2 small warts developing, I went to a doctor that prescribed me Aldara. After a week of using Aldara, I noticed redness and ulcers in the area. My Dr told me to stop using Aldara to let it heal. I stopped using it and the warts went away for a few days after the affect area was healed and then started developing warts again. So I continued with my aldara treatment. After not seeing any results, and fearing the same redness and ulcerations. I decided to try ACV.
After just 3 days the warts are gone! I started my treatment by drinking an ACV tonic. 2 teaspoons with a glass of water(8-10oz), 2x a day(you can add a teaspoon of honey if the taste is unbearable). I used the cotton tip from a cotton swab soaked in ACV and left it the warts for 15-45 minutes several times a day.I wasn't able to tape it in place, like others had recommended because it was in the folds of my vulva and they were really small. Make sure to use a fresh cotton swab tip every time. ACV burns a little but not as bad as the side effects from Aldara.
After the first day/application the warts turned white. The second day I noticed some redness and irritation, and it burned a little when i treated it. My warts never turned completely black, but did turn greyish in the center( I'im assuming this is because they were really small, I'm talking tip of a ball point pen small). In between treatments, I applied a small dab tree tea oil to the affected area, and after every time I used the rest room because it would just rub off. I stopped treatment on the 3rd day because on night 2 the burning was unbearable, luckily the warts had fallen off. I still applied a small amount of tree tea oil to the area several times a day. The infected area is slightly pink with white and minor irritation. I think the white is dead skin that is going to fall off soon, much like when you get a blister.
HPV is a virus that needs to be fought off by your immune system, so I increased my vitamin C intake as well. I had a pap that came back negative for HPV, but that doesn't mean you don't carry the virus, it just means that no HPV cells were found in the cervix. As a side note I also suffered from acute depression/anxiety, and after drinking the ACV tonic my symptoms have also improved greatly, and overall in a better mood.
I am going to continuing drinking the tonic, and applying tea tree oil and do one more ACV treatment once the irritation goes away. I am so thankful for stumbling upon this site because the ACV treatment is way more effective than Aldara. I hopeful that the warts will not return again."
06/01/2009: AJ from Decatur, Ohio USA replies: "HI. I am not for sure if you will know this or not but I am pregnant and have only one sexual partner and we have a baby on the way. I started having bumps appear on my vagina but I don't think in me. So having the medical education I already had from my Nursing classes so far I knw that it wasn't herpes but I wasn't for sure what it was because I wasn't educated that well for genital warts so i had my obgyn look at them he just said that they were warts and that since my Fiance doesn't have them he said i had to be a carrier and they appear since my hormones were going crazy, and he wouldn't do treatment until after the baby is born which is three months. I check myself every day and i think i am getting more. So my question is when you did your ACV treatment do you have to cover them with anything because some of them i am unable to cover and worried it will cause the spread of more so please help. Thanks."
[NAY] 02/28/2009: J from Somewhere, AZ: "ACV. ok so i've been going at this treatment for three days. and it's been pure hell, but i want these things gone. the only problem is, everyone says they go grey or black, and mine turned yellow. i have a small amount (<10) in my anal area, and 4 or 5 on my penis and testicles. they're all very small, and have only been noticeable in the past year.
but what's weird is i've had itching and whatnot down there for years, even before i was sexually active. it breaks my heart because i know i contracted this from some random person, and now i have to pay the price.
i've been in denial about this for months, and have only noticed that they got worse after i began smoking, and have been sick. so obviously it has something to do with your immune system.
so anyway, i have just been soaking a small piece of gauze with straight ACV and literally taped it to my anal area (they're all around my rectal opening). the burning wasn't nearly as bad the first time as it was the last two times. the first and second times i slept with it in, and the third time i kept it in for about 45 minutes (it hurt SO bad!). i'm thinking the acidity with the vinegar is eating my skin, as it's a pretty delicate area. and after treatment i usually shower, wash the area, dry it with a blowdryer (on cool), and apply bactine and no pain neosporin.
is there something i'm doing wrong? anyone have any advice for me? no one should have to do this, and i surely don't wanna do it alone :("
02/26/2009: Not happy from Ottawa, On, Canada: "Two days ago I saw some flesh-coloured bumps on my outter vaginal lips. This morning I took a hand-held mirror and saw a bunch of reddish bumps inside my vagina. I came across this website and tried ACV. It stings so much! I then ran out and bought some tea tree oil and mixed it with salicilic acid and ACV and applied it with a cotton ball to my entire area. Earlier today I tried the tampon in ACV and it burned so much, I couldn't stand it. I think it may be making the area way too raw. I have a GYN appointment in a few days but I fully intend on sticking with the TTO/ACV/S-Acid mixture until then. Also bought some anti-stress pills and am staying away from alcohol/coffee/sugar and am trying to relax and be positive. Argh."
02/26/2009: Mia from UK: "I have had GW for 6 months now, Iv had the freezing treatment twice and each time the warts go away within a few weeks they came back. Im so devastated as it feels like I will never get rid of them. I have started using ACV as Iv read so many success stories.
Day 1: Applied vinegar to the area infected around the vagina, all warts almost instantly turned white inclusing loads more that I couldnt see before. I left the cotton on overnight and most of the next day.
Day 2: Burned more than day 1 but didnt last too long, warts have inflamed and clustured and more seem to be appearing but 2 tiny ones are turning blck and the warts are bigger which I think means they are being drawn out of the skin (i hope).
Will update you on the next few days, I am also rubbing vitamin E oil in between treatments and taking every vitamin you can imagine.
We can fight this. :-("
[SIDE EFFECTS] 02/22/2009: Nikki from Somewhere, PA: "well, i posted the other day about using AVC, and I had to stop! I did three days and my vagina is swollen and raw. I think my sweat glands are inflamed because it does not look like warts.) located on the right side of the vagina opening) The raised skin area is very sore, raw and chapped. I think i over did it on the ACV. I was wondering if anyone has had similar effects from AVC. any help would be great! just want to be sure that is not warts or if so then should i continue the acv?"
[YEA] 02/21/2009: Anon from Sydney, Australia: "Genital Warts/Apple Cider Vinegar:
First, thanks to everyone for sharing their stories and tips. Like others here, I've had great success with Apple Cider Vinegar. I'm female, and there are already plenty of helpful posts here about what to do, so I won't repeat them. I just wanted to add one tip that I've stumbled across. Guys, this may be too much info for you -- sorry. Or, maybe there are parts of the male body that this applies to, too...?
Anyway: For warts inside or around your vagina, it can be difficult or impossible to apply a bandaid/etc along the lines suggested by some posts - they're too hard to reach and/or the surrounding skin is too moist. But it seems that, for the cure to work, it's important to have the vinegar on there for a while. For these areas, I've used a mixture of vinegar and salicylic acid ointment, which you can buy at the chemist/pharmacist. Salicylic acid is also an old-fashioned "keratolytic" - ie, a cure for warts (how this virus has expanded my medical vocabulary...). It has a texture similar to vaseline, so it clings to the skin. I mixed some apple cider vingar and a few drops of tea-tree oil with it and used a q-tip/cottonbud to "paint" some warts inside my vagina. I did this three or four times a day, and the warts flared white, then quite quickly began to disintegrate.
So, keep this in mind if you have hard-to-reach warts and are wary of the tampon approach. One note: the Salicyclic acid I bought had a strength of 2%. I think you can buy ointments with much higher acid content, but I'd be wary of these. Too much Salicyclic acid can be unhealthy, and as you'll be inserting it internally, where it can be absorbed by your bloodstream, I think it's probably safest to stick to a low strength, especially as the vinegar will be doing the real anti-wart work for you.
Good luck, everyone!!! "
02/20/2009: Thomas from Oslo, Norway: "I have GW in and around my anus. I have tried the ACV on the external warts, but I don't know how to treat the internal ones. I have tried pushing in a cotton ball soaked in ACV and leaving it in, but I am not sure how safe this is. I am also not sure how to monitor the progress as it is very difficult to get a "good look"Replies

02/21/2009: Thomas from Oslo, Norway replies: "Thank you Teru! I have had GW before and got them removed surgically three years ago. I have been fine until last Tuesday when I noticed the bastards were back. I am on my fourth day with the ACV. So far it is just getting really sensitive and sore. Between the treatments I have rubbed Wheat Germ Oil on the area, because it is rich on vitamin E. I also started taking the homeopathic remedy Thuja D6 today -- I am really hoping to avoid surgery this time."
02/22/2009: Teru from Paris, France replies: "Hello Thomas, i also did take out the wart twice surgically but ...here i am again,trying to avoid that. So how did you put the ACV inside? Please come back to tell if this time worked or not. GOOD LUCK and health!"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/19/2009: Beckii from out there , PA: "I have had GW for over 10 years, I only had one out break when i was 17, and haven't had one since, until last week! I thought they were gone for good, then i came across this website, and began using apple cider vinager for two days, I thought I only had one small wart but come to find out there were much more. Now they have doubled in size and are very pink. Im hope that this works. So far, the only result I have is that they have gotten bigger. I used a regular size cotton ball with ACV, applied it for one hour last night, three hours so far today (when i get home i will sleep with it) and I am praying that they fall off by next week. I have started taking Womans one a day, Vitamin E pills, garlic pills 4 times a day and ACV pills twice a day. I hope to build up my metabolizim in hopes these annoying things go away!"
