[YEA]  re: ACV for anal warts. A few months ago I was horrified to find out a huge wart in between my butt cheeks. Soon later two more appeared as well very close to my anus. This intrigued me since I had tested negative for HPV on the year before (I am VERY paranoid about safe sex and such). I couldn't tell anyone about it because I couldn't explain how a guy can get this kind of stuff. So I searched online for natural cures (I'm all against Big Pharma , so a natural solution was a must). I searched online and found about ACV to be used topically, so that night I placed a huge moist cotton ball with ACV against my anus and went to bed. The next day was a bit uncomfortable as things got swollen, but I went on with it for another night. On day 3 I woke up and took a shower, and to my surprise the big one just fell off right on my hand! It was all black and seemed very spongee. But after two nights things were burning a bit, so I waited for everything to go back to normal before proceeding with the treatment.

Results: they were all gone by the 3rd application and haven't returned. Since then I have been using ACV on my face and I no longer have ingrown hair problems or razor burns. I also take it internally, 2tbsp with water and blackstrap molasses (I love it! Beats having a pop). My skin is great, BO is not an issue anymore, and things just seem to be going well. Thank you all for posting your comments and saving me from a very embarrassing visit to the doctor that would result in expensive and ineffective burns/freezes. It's nothing short of a miracle.

[YEA]  THE VINEGAR WORKS !!!! after only 3 days the small ones have turned black and one or two have fallen off. The larger one is flaking wich I take to be a good sign that its peeling itself away. I wrap my penis in gause bandage soaked in ACV - really stings but you grin and bear it because you can see the results.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I am currently using ACV alone because I cannot find any tea tree oil. It burns a little but its not too bad. hopefully these warts will be gone by the time i go back to school for my second semester. i wanted to know if anyone has any other symptoms with this virus [ie. foul urine and itchiness]. thanks.

[YEA]  WOW! I was SO humiliated when I found out, via self-prognosis, that I had genital warts. I immediately started searching for natural, home remedies so I wouldn't have to face a doctor and read about APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. I bought the SUPERMARKET BRAND, despite advice that it's not as effective. BS! It worked like a charm. Did exactly what I read about.. My vaginal warts turned brown in the middle and within 12 hours dissapeared! Miracle. I'm amazed. I have a stubborn wart defying the ACV, but I expected this one to be a pain. However, it has SHRUNK IN SIZE considerably and have hopes it will be gone soon. There was minimal pain and burning and if you use tea tree oil to sooth the healing skin where the warts were, you should be home free. Apple Cider VINEGAR for exertnal care of genital warts! WOW!!!!! NOTE: when ingesting ACV internally, I'd suggest using organic, unpasturized and raw..not supermarket brand. However, when dealing with skin ailments externally, it doesn't seem to make a difference.

[YEA]  I had 3 genital warts that came up out of no where! (I've had the same partner for 5 years) I was totally freaked out. I had used a garlic clove strapped with duck tape when I had a wart on my finger and it worked like a charm in a matter of a few weeks, but I was trying that technique and although it had burned one of the GW off when it was very small it didn't seem to work as it got bigger. And it burned! So I was determined to find a cure! And I found your amazing blessing of a website. I' tried the ACV on a cottonball squeezed between my legs. In two days one of the small one fell off. I noticed a change in the other larger ones instantly. They got smooth and were starting to disentegrate. In 3 weeks they are pretty much gone. I will say that it kind of burned... but it was totally worth it. I only held it between my legs for about 20 minutes every 2 nights with a break in between, I also used tea tree oil which i thought would burn but it was actually very soothing. thank you so much! Now I am experimenting with ACV drinks! I sent your website to all I know.

[YEA]  I found out I had HPV about 3 months ago. Since then, I have been receiving trichloric acid treatments from the dr. and had no results. After doing a little research on my own, I tried using the apple cider vinigar 3 times a day followed by tea tree oil. I have been doing this for about a week now. Some of my warts have dissapeared and the others have started to scab up. It is amazing how well this works. I have asked my dr. so many times, what I can do to speed up this process and she tells me nothing. I wish everyone could now how amazing this stuff works. Good luck to all of you.

[YEA]  When I first noticed small bumps around my vagina, I actually thought it might be a couple ingrown hairs, in vain I tried to open one in order to pull the hair out, but in the area where it was it was difficult to tell anything... but as the bumps began to increase in number over the next week, I feared I might have genital warts. Sure enough, soon afterward I noticed three clearly visible warts on the outside lips of my vagina. I was too embarassed to talk to my mom or my friends or even my doctor about it, even though I'm not a promiscuous person, I feared that's what I'd appear to be.. So, after extensive online research for home remedies I decided to try apple cider vinegar as it was something I already had readily available... I only applied it for three days before the warts were nothing more then scabs, that also healed very quickly. All I did was soak a cotton ball in the vinegar and swiped it on every time I used the bathroom, then at night, I applied the cotton ball for at least ten consecutive minutes. I warn you that it can burn, which is not very comfortable, but for me.. the fast results were more then worth it. Especially since I often read that most of the home remedies out there weren't very effective on larger warts.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera Gel   0  0   

Posted by Danielle (Manchester, Uk) on 07/20/2013

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  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!

Apple cider works, I got rid of 2 flat skin colored warts with it and rubbed Vitamin E oil on them, they dissapeared after about 2 weeks.. I got really depressed and they came back and worse.. I got like 5 of them, I started rubbing a banana peel on each of them 3-4x a day and then today I rubbed ACV on with a cutip on each wart individually, and the ACV literally turned the wart white and rubbed it off, started bleeding so I applie vitamin E oil immediately with some aloe vera. Hopefully it stays away this time, im taking 3000mg of Vitamin C and 100mg of zinc with 8 garlic pills a day, so hopefully I can conquer this virus and not have to deal with it anymore. Im a firm believer in Zinc for immune system. I usually take 50mg a day, but im gonna do 100 for the next month and see what happens. However the warts did rub off! The skin aroun was unnaffected, I believe the banana peel started softening the wart skin adn the Apple Cider Vinegar just rubbed it off, I hope the vit e prevents spreading.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Crushed Aspirin, Castor Oil   2  0   

Posted by Anonymous (Hometown, Usa) on 03/14/2013

[YEA]  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.

[YEA]  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!!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Elderberry   0  0   

Posted by Nick (Atlanta, GA) on 05/30/2009

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!

Could you please tell me if it worked. I also noticed a small bump about 3 months ago. It was really small so I thought it would disappear. But lately I have been stressed and I guess they just multiplied. I too was diagnosed with hpv about 3 years ago but never had an outbreak.

I just started using Apple Cidar today and want to know if theres a chance it will work. Thanks

[YEA]  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

[NAY]   ... You said there is no pain where you put the Garlic?

Because Garlic burns the skin. Cut one, and bandaid it to your hand overnight... It will burn.

I had a two big plantar warts on my hand. I got the advice from a natural medical book. I could not leave the garlic for the full 24 hrs required. I think it was 8 to 12, it was unbareable. The book said that blisters would form and make the wart "fall off. " I got one blister, it was beside the wart where the garlic had laid on my skin. You're only suppose to cover the wart. Also that didnt work for me, maybe because I didnt wait a full 24 hrs. I dont know.

If you want to know the name of the book email me HollyBoston90(at)yahoo(dot)com

Plantar warts are on the toes or bottom of the feet. Also warts are a human Papillomavirus. I used to use my mothers corn remover for my hand(warts)it worked wonders but I still have the virus, thats another issue I am dealing with. good luck

[YEA]  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 !
