Apple Cider Vinegar treatment for Plantar Fibroma
I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar for a week now - everyday. I soak a cotton ball and tape it on to the Fibroma. I leave it in place over night and then replace it in the morning.
At first it just peels. Then it gets darker. Then it turns black.
It's at the point that continuing gets pretty painful but, it is flatter!
I will now stop doing it for a few days so I'll be able to wear normal shoes for an upcoming event. Once that's over I will start up again.
Given that there just aren't that many options it's worth a try. Hope this helps somebody else dealing with Plantar Fibroma.
I've been using ACV for a week now just on the lump area; nothing happened for first three days, then skin around and in top of fibroma peeled off. When top of fibroma skin came off, left perfectly round hole. Next application of ACV made fibroma black underneath the skin.. Looks revolting, but something's definitely happening! Sting/burn too painful to reapply ACV so have applied solugel to give it a rest bc area was very inflamed & painful to walk on. Am waiting to see now. MRI shows nodule very deep, so I dont know if its just burned the top or is affecting the whole fibroma.

We had blanked out the product's name, but it turns out the entire post was copied from elsewhere on the web and has now been deleted. Evidently, just an attempt to sell products. Good eye, Wadams, you have our sincere thanks!
The person who wrote about a remedy for the above mentioned the letters ACV. What do those letters mean?

I got this thing called a Plantar Fibroma on the sole of my foot, suddenly, about 7 weeks ago. After I got the diagnosis a couple of weeks ago, I was trying out some ACV on my skin and it occurred to me that it would feel good on my feet -- and it did, it felt REALLY soothing and cooling, which seemed very good. By the next morning, the fibroma was almost gone. Here is what I did: I put a folded paper towel in a plastic bag (like a produce bag) and poured some ACV (that expensive, organic brand) onto that, then put my foot on the paper towel and tied the plastic bag onto my foot (I actually did both feet because it felt so good) and left them like that overnight. I kept doing this for about a week, and there is no sign now of a fibroma. Kind of amazing, as people have surgeries for this -- and then the fibromas come back anyway. I wonder if this would also help plantar fasciitis, as it seemed to soften and relax the entire fascia.

I have plantar fibromytosis.
I have just started a treatment of physical therapy, cupping, and dry needling. After one session pain significantly reduced. I think I am on to something. Stay tuned, I will give updates.
I'm looking for assistance with Plantar Fibromas which I've have for years. I have on both feet. The orthopedic surgeon suggests surgery- that would keep me off feet for 2 months. I've tried- oral enzyme therapy, ultrasound, cream with DMSO, acupuncture, apple cider vinegar (ingested and put it on soaked overnight. and & verapamil cream. The prescription verapamil cream was most helpful, ultrasound gadget I got from online was kind of helpful, ACV maybe little helpful. Really afraid of surgery since there is such regrowth. I am female, 47, and work actively on my feet at a hotel. I've lately noticed a ganglion type cyst in my hand and previously had frozen should. Wonder if all these are related, what this stuff is and how to get it out of my system. Thanks for your help. I know many of us have this problem- few have lasting answer.
