A few weeks ago I found out I had several different strains of HPV. I have both kinds that can lead to Genital Warts (HPV 6 & 11) and I also have HPV 16, the kinds that is linked to cervical cancer. I am in the treatment of a doctor, and when I discovered I carried the GW virus, I was disgusted!! And of course, the other HPV strain concerns me as well!!!
I have experienced lots of itching in my genitalia for about a year now. I have asked the doctor each time, pointing to different little bumps and areas that concern me, and she says it's normal. I left feeling like I'm a bit of a hypochondriac. Then last night I tried the ACV routine, soaking the cotton ball and applying directly to my outer labia where I'd experienced itching. After about 15 minutes, I checked and waalaa! There were about 4 very distinct raised white bumps, standing out from all the rest of the areas on my skin! Yikes! So I've been reading this website a little too much and decided to chime in with my own story.
I slept with a cotton ball wedged between my labia all night...yeah, that was comfortable.
This morning, no raised spots, but I can still see something there. I've read where people have overdone it and burned themselves, and I can see a patch of really delicate skin that's irritates. Yet I'm determined, so this morning I soaked another cotton ball and applied it again...as I type it clings to my skin. Do the trick, please!
I see a few other bumps of concern on my skin outside my labia, and the dreaded anus has been itching as well, and today I see a little bump. When I pluck up the nerve, I'll test that with ACV.
