For those who are experiencing irritation and swelling after using Apple Cider Vinegar I'd recommend aloe vera gel. I used it on both my anal region and the inside of my labia/opening to my vagina. It is incredibly soothing and I applied it after toilet trips, I massaged it into the sore areas and then left a cotton wool pad with some on placed on top. Aloe vera gel has antiviral properties so in itself it can aid the removal/healing of genital warts. Although used on its own constantly it would take a while I found that for those days when I needed a break from pure ACV, aloe vera gel did work perfect for me. My warts were gone within a week might I add. Unfortunately I also think I have some inside my vagina and although I'm waiting to see my GP, does anybody know a home remedy that I can try for those? I was considering Apple Cider Vinegar but because they are inside I'm scared? Thanks and remember vitamins vitamins vitamins!

I Had to be in vegan diet no soda etc just a vegan diet.I mixed Applecider vinegar and aloe vera the plant getting the clear gel3 raw garlic also water plus mixed all together buy cayenne capsule take 3 times same with apple mixtures just take for two months you will see results in 1 week feel' better it kill parasite in your body also please try to vegan diet try to stay away from eggs milk if can no red meat at all.

Lets try to keep it short. I've been fighting this for over 2 yrs. I freeze em and they come back. Found this site and tried Apple Cider Vinegar straight applied with Qtip an hour a day for a week with no results. Decided to try the ACV asprin and oils. Works great. Just chill and watch a movie every night and recharge the paste as it dries out with more ACV on a Q tip. After 3-4 days they noticably dry and start to scab. 4 days seems to kill em. Dont overdo it or its tough on the skin. Put vitamin e neosporin or whatever you have on the new skin. Soon they are GONE. I am going to do the soak in ACV twice a month for awhile to make sure these things never come back. So stoked.

First of all a massive thank you for all your help! I've had GW for almost a year and my GP would not refer me to a gynecologist and she only prescribed creams that never worked. Here is my story:
-I've had GW for 8 months now, GP thought it was nothing, then diagnosed me with chlamydia and then yeast infection. I did my research and knew it was GW, but my GP wanted me to go to a hospital 1hr away - I don't have a car. And that would mean loads of tests and no direct treatment, so I looked for remedies and found the ACV aspirin one.
-I tried it 3 days ago, soaked cotton balls in the mixture and applied them for 4hrs. I was in a lot of pain, didn't fall asleep until 4am (lesson: do the treatment during the day), but I pushed through it because I really wanted these darn things off.
-3 days later, the skin is grey and wrinkly, took a shower and most of it came off!! I am so incredibly relieved! I know dab some hydrogen peroxide on to keep the raw skin clean, it still hurts a bit because my warts were spread from my labia down to my anus.
-I really hope the warts don't come back but for now I am so happy! Thank you guys sooo much!!
I am currently on day 4 of ACV treatment and elderberry extract...
A good healthy diet with elderberry extract will help A LOT! Take about 2100 MG throughout the day (2 pills, 3 times a day) everyday for a month. I know this may seem like a pain to deal with, but it will help. You will notice the warts shrink in size and eventually disappear. Elderberry heals from within so instead of burning the surface of the wart (and your skin), the elderberry will cause an immune response to the area infected.
You can purchase elderberry from your local herbal supplement store. Give it a shot!
Just remember to stay strong. HPV is the most common STD out there. 75-80% of sexually active adults get HPV throughout their life. Not everyone shows signs or symptoms, but just remember that you're not alone.
My journey to rid myself of GW: Tonight begins my hope for relief. About a moth ago, I felt a strange growth on my anus as I was finishing in the bathroom. I figured it was a skin tag, and decided to forget about it. Over the last few weeks, I'd began to notice more and more, until about a dozen or so of these things were surrounding my anus and speading along my perinium. Last night I finally got up the courage to examine them. I put the mirror down there and HOLY HELL WHAT THE @#+$ IS THAT??? Immediately I jumped online and searched. It finally all added up. I was diagnosed with HPV 3 years ago while pregnant with my son, but the doc said I didn't have a strain that would cause GW. Guess she was wrong. I'm thiinking it got into the anal region when my ex husband decided to spice up our sex life with anal sex, causing fissures and bleeding. I thought, these disgusting little buggers have GOT TO GO! I found this site and, thank the heavens, I'm beginning a compress of ACW, crushed garlic, and a splash of HP at bedtime. I've also started eating a garlic clove or two a day, along with echinaecea. I have high hopes from all the yeas on this site, and I have been a believer in natural healing for years. Update tomorrow... wish me luck!

I am so glad that I found this site yesterday!!
I could not face going to a doctor with this and was getting really desperate
I soaked a baby wipe in vinegar and held it to the area for ten minutes, then thoroughly dried the area using blow drier. Next, I sliced a garlic bulb into thin strips and soaked them in olive oil and then attached one slice to the most affected area with a bandaid. This involved a lot of acrobatics!! I left it on for 3 hours and then repeated the vinegar process and then taped on another slice of garlic. I did this every 3 hours and left the garlic on all night.
Today, the warts have cleared up considerable and there is no pain, I plan to do this procedure for the next few days until they have cleared up.
I have never had these before and would like to know if anyone else has severe stomach cramps at the same time as a break out
Thanks so much
This is follow up on my posting from 10/8/07. I was going to post feed back one week after I started treatment. However, I already have results to report, so here I am, 5 days after.
In my previous posting I explained that I had warts between the buttocks that had been criogenically removed in two session at a clinic. But that recently some new ones had come out in and around the anus, with intense itching. After a ACV rub, I had counted a total of 10 warts, all small except two that were medium size (about 1/8 inch).
For the first 2 days I spot treated the warts for 10 minutes with full strength organic, unpasteurized 6% ACV. It burned for the first 5 minutes, but then it was ok. Then I followed with the liquid gel content of a garlic pill during the day. At night I put a wedge of raw garlic on the warts.
Daily I also took the following:
Vitamin E 1000 IU: 1 pill 2 X day
Vitamin C 1000 IU: 1 pill 2 X day
Multivitamin: 1 pill 2 X day
Garlic Pills: 3 pills 3 X day
Echinace: 1 pill 2 X day
Gingseng: 1 pill X day
4 glasses of water with 2 spoons of ACV a day.
The 3rd day I could not use the ACV application because the anal area had become raw and it hurt too much. So I just kept the area clean and apply the content of a vitamin E as lotion.
The 4th day I checked and it appeared that the area was healing, and I could not see the warts but wasn't sure.
The 5th day, the area was very much healed (that fast !) and I definitely cannot see any warts whatsoever.
However, I will point out that the itching has started to happen in a new area, just outside the anal area, especially at night. I apply the content of a garlic pill on the itchy area and it takes about 90% of the itching away Immediately, upon contact. If I want to geto 100% if the itchin away, I put a wedge if raw garlic.
I will continue taking the vitamins and supplements and applying the garlic on the itchy area. If I see any significant developments, I will post again. I just want to thank the site owner for this wonderful website, and the people that shared this remedy, which works incredibly well and so fast.
If anyone has comments for me as to what else I can do about the itchin or warts, please email me. Thanks !
I was diagnosed with genital warts in the anal area about 3 months ago. I know I had had intense itching for a couple of years but I did not know what it was, until about one year ago I saw a small growth between the buttocks, and over the months it grew and I had it diagnosed in a clinic. Initial treatment was cryogenic. The first two visits (one week apart) removed them completely (two warts). But they started to grow back again after about a month. So they treated them again and they were gone. That was about a month ago. However, last week I had severe itching in the anal opening, and I was horrified to see several small warts. I went to the doctor and she said I needed to see a different doctor with adequate tools for that location. I found this website yesterday, and I started a treatment suggested here by other readers:
First, I did a 6% Apple Cidar Vinegar (ACV) test: I smeared the anal area with ACV for about 10 minutes using a soaked Q-tiped, making the warts clearly visible (they turned whitish). I counted 10 of them (ten !!!! ).
I went to the store and bought garlic soft gel pills, vitamin C, vitamin E. Am taking one multivitamin daily, plus one of C, and E. Also 3 garlic pills in the morning and 3 at night. I am also drinking 2 spoons of ACV in a glass of water, 4 times a day. I am applying the content of a garlic gell pill directly on the affected area during the day and at night I left a small slice of garlic on the warts. It burned for the first 5 minutes, but then it was ok. I noticed that the intense itching was about 98% gone immediately and hasn't returned. Relief !!
Daily I am also applying full strength (6%) of ACV on the warts, twice a day for about 10 minutes. It burns but it is tolerable, especially because I really, really want to get rid of these disgusting things. I will post an update weekly with my progress. I hope my case will also help others. So far the only progress I can report is that I got relief from the itching. Almost completely gone.
so i'm into my 3rd week of ACV application and am seeing change...finally! i have had HPV for the last 3 years and as i mentioned in my previous post i have tried everything. for the last 3 weeks i've been taking 4-8 garlic pills daily along with my ACV. i'm not sure the garlic pills are doing anything. my warts are small and fine (chicken skin-like), very' stubborn. what i have noticed is they're turning white and peeling off like an onion...layer by layer. i'm going to try the Job's tears and report back in a couple weeks time. although i still have the warts and none have officially vanished i can see the ACV fighting. in week 1 i would soak a cotton pad of ACV on the wart for 10mins. i'm in week 3 and and bumped that up to 30mins. i feel a burn but it's tolerable and it tells me it's working. my case seems to be different than others as it's not 1 big wart. its clusters of small ones and i hate them! i can't wait till they're gone. thanks EARTH CLINIC! who have definitely opened my eyes to alternative treatment.
Wanted to get back to you all. I was writing a huge posting just a minute ago, I don't know if it posted or if my computer erased it, but here is the info again.
For the last 2.5 months I've been taking garlic pills, the last 1.5 months, I've been using the liquid inside the softgels and applying it as a lotion plus taking the pills. I've seen great results using the cream, but for the month that I was only taking the pills, they did absoulutely nothing. About 2 weeks in to using the lotion I ran out of the pills I had been using (Sundown Odorless Garlic) and bought another, less potent brand. All of the reaction that had been going on in the area affected by GW stopped and started to heal. After it was pretty much healed up, I noticed that a lot of the warts were gone, and some were barely visible. I don't know if they are still warts, or if what I'm seeing are just little scars. Anyhow, thinking that the job wasn't done, I went and bought the Sundown brand, and started using it again for the last 2 weeks. The reaction hasn't been as dramatic as before, but, some of the skin is starting to flake off again, and it appears that the warts/scars(?) are getting smaller.
In my previous posting I mentioned that I was using ACV as a wash 2 times a day on the affected area. Two days after I wrote that, I had to stop doing it. The pain was almost unbearable. However, the wart I had been spot treating with a swab was gone. After about a week of healing, the skin was healed and no sign of the wart, except for some very light, minimal scarring.
Using my experience, this is what I recommend to you guys:
1. Take 3 Garlic Soft Gels (Sundown--73.5mg, if you can) twice a day for good measure, but I really don't think it's doing anything for you, but keeping your cholesterol levels low
2. Apply the gel from one soft gel to the affected area twice a day to stop and eliminate many small warts.
3. Spot treat larger warts with a ACV on a swab directly applied to the wart twice a day for 10 minutes each time.
One last thing, when the skin starts flaking off when you are using the garlic gel, it will be a little painful. On a scale of 1 to 10, the ACV I was doing hurt at about an 8; the garlic gel treatment, at about a 4 and only when I was washing in the shower.
This method is working for me, and I am seeing results. I hope this helps. Once again, good luck to all of you.

I've been trying the ACV treatment on my warts for about 1 week now. And I am happy to say that it works! I've been struggling with this since about January when I got my first outbreak. I didn't want to go to the doctor because I was embarassed, so I checked on line. I found this product called "Warts No More". IT DOESN'T WORK. It did, however, help spread my 4 or 5 warts to something like 30. It was a waste of money and very frustrating. I also used Compound W "Freeze Off", and that took care of one of the bigger ones, but about a month ago it came back as two smaller ones. I also tried salycilic acid (Wart Stick), which is the highest content of salycilic acid I could find over the counter (20%), but it was way too rough on that sensitive of an area. So I stop after a week, and let all the skin heal--no scars thankfully. So, this brings me to ACV. I read something about a "Vinegar Test" doctors use to determine if someone has GW. Still in denial, I tried it out a couple of times-I saw no results. However it appeared that the warts had gotten smaller. That's when, on a web search I found this site. I've been taken 3 3 Garlic Pills a day (jury's still out on that, I don't know how much effect its having, they do appear a bit more under control, and they are getting smaller) for about a week now. I have also been doing an ACV wash twice a day after my showers, as well as applying ACV directly with a swab for 10 minutes twice a day on the two warts mentioned above. I've been doing the direct application for 3 days, and today, I see only two scabs where those hideous things had been. I'll keep you all posted on the progress of this treatment for the other warts. But, for once, I think something is truly working. Save your money! Go buy some ACV at the supermarket, and pop some garlic pills for good measure. You will be pleasantly surprised. I was! Good luck to all of you.
I would like to thank EL AHR and the rest for their wounderfull recommendation on using APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, TEA TREE OIL. I had genital warts just one big a size of key hole below my butt that was frozen after my ex- admitted that he had an affiar 4 years ago. However it came back. I did not bother to do a thing until four days ago something promt me to look for home remedy. To my shock I bought all the above and within two days the wart turned white and fall off. To be honest thr treatment was painful but believe me just as the rest of you its worth. ACV. And Tea tree oil burns, but Hydroegen peroxide 3% does'nt. I am will continue to use Hydrogen peroxide at least for two weeks as I get ready to go for my annual pap- smear test (women wellness). Thanks to Eath Clincic and the Rest of you who have tried ACV, Tea Tree and successed you all are great. I would wish the rest safe and protect youself fro STDs.
I am a young male and after discovering the genital warts I was desperate to get rid of them. I really wanted to avoid the doctor because I had read many reviews about the poor results with prescription creams, etc. I found ACV and gave it a try. At first, I just applied ACV soaked cotton balls and wrapped them in band-aids. Long story short, the band aids fell off halfway through the night and I never got the full effects of the ACV. I knew it was working because they hurt and turned white, but the ACV duration just was not long enough.
I upgraded to strong adhesive waterproof medical tape and instead of just ACV, I made a solution of ACV and added a few splashes of Tea Tree Oil. I soaked the cotton balls in the concoction, covered the several areas of warts and covered my penis with tape. I mean covered. The tape was not coming off this time (I did tape a little tighter near the head of my penis to avoid any irritation caused by excess fluid. ) I didn't sleep much that night. I have a high pain tolerance but that was some of the worst pain I have ever felt. I tossed and turned but I knew a few nights of suffering would be worth it. I woke up the next morning in pain and immediately tore off the bandages. The areas covered with cotton balls were greenish/bluish gray. I was quite nervous. I thought maybe I had wrapped it too tight and cut off some circulation or not allowed any air to penetrate. Needless to say I did more research online and didn't find anything strange. I kept going with the treatment. The next few nights I couldn't even keep the bandages on all night due to the pain, but I wore the ACV and tea tree oil mixture for several hours during the day. The whole time I made sure to keep the area clean and put neosporin on when not saturating with ACV and TTO. Within a week or so my skin was raw and hurt. I decided to stop treating the area, but continued wearing neosporin.
After the area healed some I treated again, but focued more on using tea tree oil. In fact, I rarely wore ACV again and found TTO to be generally more pleasant, although it still hurt.
I finally stopped all treatment after a little over a week of vigorous treatments and a lot of pain. The skin took over three weeks to heal back, but two months later I am completely wart free.
However, I must warn that I do have one small scar and a larger sized scar on the shaft of my penis. If you are going to do this treatment get some scar reducing cream right away and apply as soon as the wound has healed enough.
I pray the warts don't come back because this treament is PAINFUL. However, it was completely worth the pain for me.
I don't have a certain recipe for the TTO and ACV mixture nor a certain schedule I followed.
1) Start with the mix at night and wear for as long as possible
2) Let breathe during the whole day or do another round of treatment for a few hours
3) Make sure you are constantly keeping the area clean and use triple antibiotic cream (Neosporin)
4)Shift towards TTO once the skin is raw
5) Neosporin and scar gel
Good luck and stick with the treatment!
I also want to thank everyone for their input. This disease is embarrassing, but thanks to everyone that submitted their story, everyone can hopefully treat, if not cure themselves. Thanks to everyone and Earth Clinic
I used ACV and it removed my warts, but they returned. Frustrated, I looked into tea tree oil. I applied it with a q-tip two times a day. After a week they are gone. I also started taking 550mg of elderberry extract two times a day to help my body fight the virus. Hope this can help someone.
