[YEA] How badly do you want these to go away and stay away?
I was one of those that doubted ACV for GW [Genital warts]. Especially after one bad experience, but do recommend it highly now. [I still do not know how it would work out for a cluster of warts.]
Bad experience: I did not follow recommended procedure and burned my skin badly. I had only one and it looked like a skin tag. I went searching online and discovered what it was. I had no Q-tips but had the Vinegar. I soaked a rolled up piece of bathroom tissue in the vinegar, squeezed out the excess, and applied it to the area in a U shape [it was between vagina and rectum, the area there]. I left it there from about midnight to 8am. I wiped the area many times that day with vinegar tissue without squeezing out the excess vinegar and I did the same the next night as the night before. I was in misery, swollen, etc, but the GW fell off in about another day and no more came until recently [over a year]. But at that time I was burned. Slow down! Don't over do it! I also told the guy I was seeing who, it turns out, was the giver of it. He had one and did the same, set himself on fire too, but the GW [his was a anal wart] fell off about the third day.
I foolishly kept seeing him, discovered he has cheated sooooo bad. Has been like this since he was a teen, lots of females! All unprotected sex [I'm getting tested for EVERYTHING soon! ].
This time I went searching the internet again. I tried the banana peel thing exactly as it said. Scraping the stuff off and applying it as a paste, leaving it there all night. I broke out, was on fire, etc. So after that simmered down I tried the Vitamin E, diaper rash meds, and more, no results at all [but oils and diaper rash stuff will help protect the skin around the wart from vinegar burn].
I returned to vinegar one more time. But still I had no band aids or tape or Q-tips. [By the way, this time I had 2, now the anus and the same location as before.] I did the same as before but only one night this time. These swelled, turned white, and several more appeared. You can have more than what appears and vinegar can make them swell and appear. I was frantic till I discovered that fact. It simply raises up the ones you can't see and you want it to do this so you can get rid of these also. These new ones go away fast without becoming big because your attacking the HPV virus in them before they grow bigger. I kept using vinegar soaked tissue strips to wipe these about 3 days several times per day. Don't use this much!!! Drain the excess!! The warts went away fast! But I had burned myself again! I had two raised blisters or what looked like blisters. They were not warts but vinegar can turn things white that are not GW. These vinegar lesions turned flesh color in two days. Takes longer to get rid of these [vinegar damage] than the warts! I painfully douched out my rear three days [about 4 tbl spoons vinegar, the rest of it in water in douche bottle]. Warning: this works like an enema. Do this at home and not before work or school. You might have to run to the bathroom a few times after! Do not use a lot of vinegar in your butt! I read where one guy blistered himself and it got infected and he had to go to the ER, explain, be medicated, had scars after, etc! I commonly douche the front [vagina] with white vinegar and have many years [by the way I think ACV would be better on the warts but both times all I had was white. And I use more vinegar in vaginal douche but do not advise it for those who do not douche regular with vinegar]. I did this once per day for 3 days. I do not want any GW inside my self in either area. I don't want GW's ever again period.But HPV does not get cured. You can keep warts at bay but the virus is with you for life. Let your immune system be weak and you will have recurrences. Keep your immune system up, you might never have one again.
During this time I have changed some things about myself, too. I'm eating far more veggies and fruits, I replaced meats with eggs [you can just cut down on meats except liver and fish], I drink a lot of water, orange juice, Apple juice and Green Tea per a day [do not over do green tea if you have a heart problem of any kind or AFIB. Consult you physician]. I also put 4 table spoons of vinegar in a 12 ounce glass of water in the morning and drink it down, [but posts I have read recommend 2 table spoons]. Three weeks later there is not a spot on my body of any kind anywhere, I feel better physically, am not tired in the day no more and don't require any naps at all. At the time of the first problem over a year ago I had started doing the same because of a diet. This time the same reason but also read fantastic things about drinking vinegar water in the morning and 2-4 cups of green tea per day. I have read even by doctors your body will fight HPV that causes these, maybe even prevent any occurrences if you pick up your immune system. I also cut back to 2 cups of coffee per day, my cravings for sweets quit with the tea intake so there has been no junk food and I don't drink pop or anything with sugar. For that matter the recurrence happened when I drank alcohol several days heavily. I was not eating a bite of food, was smoking heavily, was very depressed. Stress will trigger these too from what I read. Poor diet, stress, heavy intake of bad things such as alcohol, coffee, smoking, sugar, junk food, lack of vitamins, etc. But the tea and vinegar cleanses the body of much bad and kicks in gear the good needed to ward these off.
So, this is my remedy for you. Worked fast as can be for me.
Morning: 4 tablespoons of vinegar to 12 ounce glass of water. Drink it down. If you get a belly ache, cut down to 2 table spoons or just use the recommended dose of two.
Start your day with cup of green tea, nothing added to it. Drink at least one to two more from then before bed time.
Stop the junk food immediately at least till this occurrence has passed. Stop the coffee at least temporarily. Stop sugar. Cut waaaaay back on meat. Eat lots of veggies and fruits. I am presently only on fruits, veggies, juices, eggs 4 times per week and no meat. If you stop meats as I did it is recommended to replace this with eggs 4 times per week. You should maybe throw in some vitamin supplements.
3 to 4 glasses of 100% orange or apple juice per day. Four 12 ounce glasses of water per day.
Drinking so many liquids may cause your appetite to be as mine which has went from extreme to practically none, mainly because of the tea from what I read. Eat!!! And eat healthy.
Use ACV "properly" on Q-tip applied to wart overnight a couple nights in a row held in place by tape or band aide. During the day wipe the wart with q-tip that has vinegar on it.
If your a woman douche three days in a row with vinegar douche, two to 4 Table spoons of white vinegar [not sure how much if you use ACV]. If there is an anal wart [you're male or female], decide for yourself about vinegar enema, two table spoons to douche bottle of water [do not know how many ounces that is]. I'm no doctor! But what I have read about this means you could wind up with an infection so decide for yourself. I'm not a back door person either so this was very painful for me. No harm from vinegar though. I did as recommended online and only inserted the tip an inch to 2 inches, not the whole thing! You need the holes on the nozzle inserted enough to release the mix inside.
I douche twice per week with vinegar, I have done this several years. Doctors advise against over douching. Over douching might cause the vagina to not do its own proper cleansing, is what I read. I will also keep up with the back door cleansing once per week though it is painful cuzz I never want a recurrence. I will also use a paper towel, damp with vinegar every other day to skin ward this off.
HPV is a skin thing. Keep it clean.
Experiments have been done with chlorine bleach in labs but not on people! I have read where some have used it on warts or as a cleaning process, merely damp paper towel as I am doing with vinegar like every other day for merely washing, wait a few minutes, clean it off. As a preventive measure. The bleach destroys the HPV in the lab in the cylinders they use [again, not tried on people]. I read some people do the same steps as you would with vinegar. I'm just not going to myself since I already have something that works and works fast. Things I have read did not say how long it takes to get rid of a wart with bleach.
Go to the doctor if you have more than say 5 or if their large or if you burn yourself with anything you experiment with trying to get rid of these!!!!!! You should go to the doctor anyway. And please please tell any sexual partners! You have no right to spread this to another. Because of where these can be located a condom does not prevent you giving it to others. You have no right to infect others. Please care and please don't have sex without telling your partner. If you have a present partner, please tell them what has happened. What my mate has done to me has harmed me in self esteem, emotionally, mentally.
Don't just right out blame your partner. These can take from 2 weeks to months to years to pop up on you. You may be the one that has given it to them!
Do not, do not, do not shave the hair below!!!!!!!!!!!!! It can cause a recurrence and also cause it to spread. Do not shave pubic hair ever again!
Do not pull or shave a wart off. You will probably get an infection and it will spread and can bleed a lot!
Men, you need to clean your whole every thing, under sack, anus, the sack, shaft, rim, head.
Men and women, I now soak three times per week in vinegar bath. Bath tub of water at least several inches deep, one cup of vinegar. Soak at least 20 minutes, I soak 30 minutes. Found this online, too. My skin feels great afterward, too.
How badly do you want these gone? How badly do you you not want another occurrence? How badly do you not want to give it to another? [But remember, even with these gone, you can spread HPV by unprotected sex. You are now doomed to condoms the rest of your life! ]
Treat yourself inside and out. Put your towels in a safe place [hamper] out of reach of children and anyone and especially wash cloths used to wash these areas.
If you do oral, chances are you could have these in your mouth whether you see one or not, rinse your mouth in evening before bed with diluted vinegar or with peroxide. Personally I rinse with straight vinegar followed by straight peroxide [do not swallow]. Swish it around. Don't panic if the inside of your mouth turns white all over. Vinegar and peroxide either one will do this. Again, vinegar can make things whaite that are not GW and peroxide in the mouth will turn much of the inside white. It's not white when you wake in the morning. Use peroxide first, swish all over, spit it out but do not rinse. Wait 5 minutes, rinse, then swish vinegar, then rinse immediately after you spit it out. Or just use vinegar. I use both cuzz I smoke and peroxide is a great yeast killer and kills some types of bacteria. Can even be used in a douche to tackle Vaginosis, Yeast Infection, and the std Trichomonasis. Again, you can be hurt by such if not done properly. Never douche with straight vinegar. Never douche with bleach at all. Only use recommended amounts of peroxide or vinegar in douches.
You have a responsibility to protect others. GW and like 100 strains of HPV has become insane in the US today. You know people with it without realizing it. All sexually active people who have had several partners in their life will have one strain or another in their life. The person who gave it to you might have been a person who knew and did not care, and may have had suspicions they were infected and did not care, please don't be as they were. You yourself could have hadit for years and not known. But apparently you know now so be careful!
With genital or anal warts there can be extra moisture to the vagina and rectum that was not there before. It is of utmost importance to keep these areas clean and dry! This moisture can cause a whole lot of itching and prevention of healing and a recurrence. Some use paper towels to keep things dry. They say it takes a lot of getting used to. With myself I have had no more of this since they went away and had none in between the two occurrences. I read in one place you should use a hair dryer to dry things down there after baths, after douching, etc.
