Apple Cider Vinegar Cure for Warts
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Small Piece of Cotton Ball
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is also a very popular wart remedy. Soak a small bit of a cotton ball, no bigger than the size of the wart, in ACV, apply it to the wart, and secure it with a band-aid. You can replace the cotton with a new soak once or twice a day. In a couple of weeks, your wart should be gone.
[YEA] 10/05/2008: Tami from Chicago, Illinois, USA: "Well, I was the biggest cynic, but ACV worked for me too. I didn't realize it, but I had plantars warts on my feet and then one spread to my finger. I tried the ACV after reading all the good stories on this site, and guess what? Same good outcome! I used the Qtip cotton with a bandaid and changed it several times during the day to re-wet the cotton. I think the vinegar only hurts alot if you have sensitive skin, because i didn't reeally experience any pain. After about 4 days of this, the wart turned black and i picked it off with a tweezer - this did not hurt. It left a little hole which i covered with neosporin and a bandaid and voila, no more wart.
Now, for those plantars warts..."
[YEA] 09/19/2008: Mary from Baltimore, Maryland: "My son had several plantar warts on the bottom of his feet. We tried several other remedies, such as the banana peel, potatoes, etc. and nothing worked. Then every night for about a week or two I applied a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar to the warts and taped it on using gauze tape. Those stubborn warts started to clear up and have not returned, it's been a year so far. I would highly recommend apple cider vinegar to remove warts."
[YEA] 09/18/2008: Diane from San Jose, U.S.: "I used apple cider vinegar to cure several warts on my hand. Previously I tried freezing them at the doctor's, as well as a home freezing treatment. I followed the advice by soaking cotton pads in the ACV and leaving them on overnight. I did it for about a week, and by the end the week they were gone! The smell isn't great and the skin feels irritated the next morning, but it is quite worth it for the results. It has been over a year now since my treatment, and the warts have not returned. I'm grateful to this site for informing me about this great natural remedy."
[YEA] 08/16/2008: Jennifer from Durham, NC: "I went to the dermatologist because I had a very painful wart I had for several years in the palm of my right hand. She prescribed several expensive prescription topical ointments, and nothing worked. I read about ACV and removal of warts on line, so I decided to try it. After 10 days, it was completely gone! I applied the ACV to a cotton ball on the wart every few nights (otherwise, it burns the surrounding skin) with a piece of adhesive tape, and I was very excited about the results. I've not had any recurrance since then and I am a firm believer in ACV!"
[YEA] 07/10/2008: Billy Brent from Austin , Texas: "Warts!! Ugh. I had plantar warts and warts all over my hands. I tried the typical stuff: Compound W, that Sray cold/burning stuff you pay way too much for at the drugstore, duct tape, direct accupuncture on the warts (i'm not discounting accupuncture as it does often work wonders), having them professionally burned off (which worked but they came back within a month!). I spent several hundred bucks trying to get rid of those bastards. The plantar warts were of the 'mosaic' variety, meaning they were forming in clusters, especially on my heels. They were even beginning to hurt--not to mention that they were a source of embarrassment at the pool and in yoga classes.
I unenthusiastically tried organic ACV as a last resort and voila! Within a week to ten days those suckers were gone! They didn't peel off like they tended to do with the above mentioned treatments (only to return). The roots of them turned black and they just withered.
Here's what i did: took some gauze and saturated it with the ACV, and secured it with duct tape over the warts before bed. Did this for about a week.
I wish I had found this website earlier before spending all that money. Went to two doctors who, it turns out, were clueless. Maybe they were clued in on the fact that a 3 dollar bottle of vinegar (of which you're only using a few pennies' worth) can really do the trick--they make their money off of illness (in the U.S., anyway)
Incidentally, I've been meaning to post this for a while. Several months have passed and not a sign of a wart!!"
[YEA] 07/08/2008: Alg from Oslo, Norway: "ACV cure for warts (hand and foot): Soak enough cotton balls/ pads to cover your feet in Apple Cider Vinegar. TO get the best result, put the cotton pads soaked in ACV in a sandal which won't get ruined and will help keep the pads in their place (perfect shoe/ sandal: CROCS). Soak your feet for as long as you can-make sure you do this on a day when you're COMPLETELY free. When done, clean your feet with warm water and clean off the dead skin. When your feet are completely dry afterward, use a plastic foot file to remove rough skin and rub foot lotion.
I've been in pain for two years with foot warts and I've found the best 'medicine' (cheap, effective) only recently. I soaked my foot three times (almost 10-15 hours each time) and the effect was unbelievable! Now, I am completely wart free! All thanks to Earth Clinic and of course---Apple Cider Vinegar."
[YEA] 06/06/2008: Tina from DFW, Texas: "I had a plantar wart right on the edge of my heel that I could not get rid of. I tried the OTC freezing stuff and it did nothing. I starting putting ACV on a pinch of a cotton ball on it at night with a bandaid. I would also put a fresh one on in the morning and try to keep it on all day. This was during the summer even, I would just put a bandaid on it. It looked better than the wart anyway. After a few weeks, it turned white and eventually came out. The hold healed up and now you can't even see where it was and it has not returned after 2 years."
[YEA] 06/03/2008: James from London, England: "ACV for Warts: At first, i used thuja oil (Warts no more). Honestly, there was not much improvement mostly just redness. I had only tried it for about 2 weeks and one appeared to be getting smaller but it says it can take 2-6 weeks for thuja to work. I lost patience and i found this webpage and tried apple cider vinegar and in 3 days they are black and scabbed over!!! yes, it burns. It can be bloody awful at times but it's pretty damn worth it. Also I agree with the original poster baths help, warm water and then hydrogen peroxide really seemed to help. it fizzes a lot. which is a good thing i presume. the skin around the scabs has turned reddish so i'e been applying off and on tea tree oil and aloe vera. aloe vera calms it quickly. i didn't keep the bandage on all day mainly just 6-10 hours at night and when just hanging around at home i would reapply acv wait for it to drink up and reapply but you must bandage it for a continuous amount of time.
Good luck! give it a shot. for the nay sayers just so you know one of mine was stubborn, Very stubborn so don't give up after one try. be positive and take lots of ester-c (Vitamin c but the absorbable kind, vitamin c when taken in supplements is often not absorbed)
[YEA] 06/03/2008: Terri from Babbitt, MN: "After numerous trips to the Dr. & failed painful treatments of the freezing method for the warts on my finger, my sister suggested this remedy. At night I wet a cottonball with the ACV then put it on the wart and cover it with a bandaid. I change this nightly. within 1-2 weeks my warts were gone."
[YEA] 04/13/2008: Tim from New York, New York: "Well, it worked! I wrapped the bandaid on it for 3 nights, then I took 3 nights off to let the sensitive skin around the wart heal. I was all set to resume the ACV treatments and the wart simply fell off! Total time from beginning to end was only 6 days. And this is after several years, and 2 rounds of prescription treatments failed. Just be sure to apply vaseline on the healthy skin around the wart when you start this treatment."Replies
06/08/2010: Leila from New Haven, Connecticut United States replies: "Hi I have about 10 warts on my hand and I tried a liquid medicine on my warts and they went away, but they came back with more later. Does ACV really work? And does it have any pain?"
[YEA] 03/29/2008: Eloise from Sydney, NSW: "I had a wart on the bottom of my foot and i was thinking of all of the things possible to get rid of warts everything i thought of...milk water(of course that wouldnt work butanyway)ummmmmm i thought vinegar i looked in the cupboard and we only had apple cider vinegar still i used it with a bandage and plasters just a blob to make it moist and voila! ..it went brown hard ...browwwwwwwner then gone just gone!! ..but you have to'file it down with a nail file so its flat or soak it till its white then cut it ..owch but they are the most annoying things on earth !! go away!"
[YEA] 03/14/2008: Joe from Grand Rapids, Michigan: "About a year ago I started developing huge warts all over my hands, probably 4 or 5 on each, and they were nasty. I was embarrassed by them, so I went to the doctor and for $300 and two visits he froze them, which was very painful. Well some of them went away, but came right back and even bigger. It also left scars. I read up a little on the internet, desperate for a remedy. Well, let me tell you Apple Cider Vinegar is an f--ing miricle! Every night before bed I soaked a cottonball in it and taped it to my hand over the wart. In the morning they would be swollen and a little painful, so you have to cover them with band-aids during the day. Anyway, it took ten days and they just eventually turned dark, shriveled and fell off. It was so easy and cheap and I haven't had a wart since. My mind is eased and I'm so happy I want to share the good news with everyone."
[YEA] 03/01/2008: Don from Lakeland, FL: "My wife & I had a couple of warts for about 5 years and tried everything under the sun to get rid of them. We used the Apple Cider Vinegar solution and it worked GREAT for both of us. We took a small cotton ball about the size of the wart top, placed this onto 3M tape, taped the cotton ball over the wart, poked a hole in the top thru the tape, placed an eye dropper thru the hole with a few drops of ACV, did this a couple of times a day and within 5 days the wart turned black and was gone in about a month after the root grew out."
[YEA] 02/29/2008: Sandy from Beaverton, OR: "Apple Cider Vinegar - why don't doctors know about this for warts? My daughter had over 20 warts on the bottom of her left foot. I tried all the stuff from the drug store but all they did was hurt the skin around the wart. The doctor tried to freeze them off but that did not work and was very painful for my 10 year old. The next step was to go to a dermatologist. Luckily though I read about the vinegar cure in the local newspaper and then searched on line to see if anyone else had any success with it. I read how they applied it and did the following each night. First due to the severity of the wart problem I used cotton balls soaked in Apple Cider viegar and bandage tape to secure them to the bottom of the foot every night. After a few days several of them began turning black. We kept going with it even though when the wart started to die it could be really itchy and sometimes sore. It never hurt the good skin though. Sometimes I would skip a day or two. After a couple of weeks almost half of the warts were gone. The warts that were in the middle of the foot that were really deep took about 13 weeks to finally completely die and go away. My daughters very last wart was gone this morning! Unbelievale! All the money I spent and all it took was a $2 bottle vinegar and some cotton balls and patience! My daughter is so happy that she doesn't have to hide her feet anymore! I think I will email the doctor to let her know a real cure!"
