They say if something good happens to you, you have to pay it forward. That's the reason for me writing this review, so that others can benefit from it. Yes, Apple Cider vinegar works. I was hesitant at first but I can't afford the very expensive procedure that the doctor is asking from me (some doctors these days will just leech your money and have already forgotten their Hippocratic oath. It's sad but it's true). The good news is that ACV costs a mere fraction of what doctors are requiring. And you can save yourself from the humiliation because it's readily available at the grocery.

Here are the procedures I did:

  1. Pour Hydrogen Peroxide to the affected area for disenfection.
  2. Dab a Qtip with ACV (get one with "the Mother", just enough that it won't leak to unaffected areas. Hold it down to the wart. Be careful not to touch healthy skin for it will also burn. During the first day, I didn't feel any sting yet but the wart will turn white. Press on the wart for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. After pressing on the wart with ACV, pour Hydrogen peroxide again to keep it bacteria free.
  4. Do this procedure twice a day. Once in the morning and again in the evening. The sting will begin when the skin is already burned and open by ACV. Just tolerate it for it is bearable. Better endure it than being miserable.
  5. When the wart turns grey or black, it means it is dead. Stop the ACV treatment. For me it just took 3 days because mine was just small ones (not bigger than pieces of rock salt).
  6. Now you will start to heal the burned skin. It will leave a white open wound.
  7. Pour Hydrogen Peroxide to the wound. Then wipe it dry with a tissue paper.
  8. Massage the wound with Virgin Coconut Oil twice a day. Leave it after massaging, don't wipe it dry. Believe me, Virgin Coconut oil is also a God send because when I woke up one day it already healed the wound as if nothing happened. I think it only took 3 days after I stopped the ACV and started the VCO treatment when it healed.

That's it. It is quick, inexpensive and it works! I hope this helps someone who is as devastated as I was when I realized I got these warts. But cheer up, God and mother nature also sent some magic.

I noticed a few white raised spots on the bottom of my penis foreskin between the frenulum. I researched them and thought they may be Tyson glans, so I went to my GP and she said they MAY be GW, but she couldn't confirm.

So I then panicked and started inspecting my penis a few times a day. I noticed a couple of small circles on the glans that were brownish in color and another larger one at the bottom of the glans that was skin color. I started spreading the skin and inspected the circle. It resembled a flat wart, but I couldn't be sure. So I started applying ACV to that and a few red spots that appeared near that larger spot and some of them did turn white, then after a couple of days, they turned greyish/black, but none of them have fallen off after 3 days of ACV treatments. So I applied a gauze pad with ACV on it over that specific area of the glans overnight last night. Now I am seeing more black areas and several little black dots within the area that was covered. I am thinking these can't all be warts. Now I am freaking out that I have damaged my skin somehow. I don't think this is HSV because none of the spots hurt or oosed any fluid for days before I started treatment.

Does anyone know why there are so many black areas on my glans after doing this? Please help ... I am very very concerned.

July 07 UPDATE: Today, one day after posting this, I noticed that much of the black areas flaked away and there is fresh pink skin underneath, but the larger spot I mentioned that was black has now turned white. Perhaps it has turned back to white from black because I have covered in w/a bandaid for 2 days straight? Can this really be a wart and, if so, does it mean because it went from black to white that it still needs to be treated w/ACV to finally kill it all? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I was diagnosed with HPV in April. I was told I wouldn't get warts because of the strain detected from my Pap smear, but I'm very positive I have them so I think somewhere along the line I got another strain or had it to begin with. I tried ACV and they turned white instantly. I have them around my vulva, and I'm concerned I may have them internally since I have had thicker discharge, but I don't want to stick ACV up there until I'm sure from the Dr.. I initially thought I had a yeast infection because I was itchy, and the medicine did actually help, but only temporarily and I went through two rounds of miconazole (the first round cured a yeast infection but the itching I still experienced was warts forming I think. They are small). I'm starting to drink ACV again because I never had the issues with warts when I was drinking it constantly due to stomach problems (it truly helps with GERD and other digestive issues from my experience). Along with ACV, I am taking: Vitamins C, E, and D3, garlic supplements, vitamin B12, folic acid, probiotics, and a green tea supplement. I'm actually even considering getting off birth control to maybe help heal myself.

I'm diluting the ACV before applying it, but I think it's causing some mild sores and I am bleeding a little in some areas, but it's only barely and is only seen on a q-tip when I dab the area. Unless these sores were from new warts trying to show up but I got them before they formed, or I burned healthy skin... I'm just going to let myself heal some. Pretty much the entire area except a few spots turns white, but I want to take it easy so I don't cause damage. It totally got rid of a smaller wart in a day and I only applied the ACV for maybe 20 minutes full strength. I was examining myself yesterday and noticed a cluster of a few (suprisingly in the shape of a flower haha) and they were definitely smaller today, but then one showed a little bit of growth, but I'm not super concerned about that. They are just in really awkward spots to hold a cotton ball on overnight, so I just go for like 20-30 min at a time. I think it will work in due time, and my itching is already much much better. If I didn't do a thorough examination of myself I wouldn't have even noticed I had them and would have assumed it was another yeast infection. I really do hope the thing ACV will help, and I'm really trying to get over the fact that I have HPV. I've been very depressed about it lately, so I hope it all clears up soon.

Apple Cider Vinegar for genital warts is a godsend! I use organic apple cider vinegar, along with sometimes putting the oil from inside a vitamin E capsule on them. I also take by mouth every day: Vitamin C, D and E, garlic, folic acid, B12, and green tea supplements to support my immune system. Occasionally I take probiotics as well along with drinking ACV in water. The vitamin e oil seems to help soothe the area of any itching or burning.

I put ACV directly on the warts, diluted with water (the first time I didn't dilute it and geeze did it hurt) and if you have vitamin E all over the area it helps to protect the healthy skin. I have some around my vulva and vaginal opening only, so it's important for me to make sure I don't hurt the sensitive tissues. I'm super thankful for the vitamin E. The other day I noticed one pop up near my urethra. This was after leaving vitamin e on the area for like 45min. Then I treated with ACV. The vitamin e not only helped the burning sensation, but made the treatment a lot more bearable.

Then, I decided I would soak in a bath with ACV to see what would happen. This was the best thing ever. I put about 2.5 cups in the water with some coconut oil and soaked for an episode and a half of Supernatural. There was little burning down there, and only a temporary tingling sensation on my legs and hands. Just be careful when showering after the bath to remove the ACV if you use coconut oil! The bathtub will be EXTREMELY slippery, and I suggest scrubbing the tub before you shower. Anyway, the next morning I had, I'm assuming, one of the newly blackened warts fall off into the toilet (I don't think there could be any other explanation), and throughout the day I kept wiping off little brown/black things. The major warts I noticed were gone and it was only a night! Granted, I had been treating them topically for a few days, but soaking in a bath instead was extremely helpful and faster acting, maybe because I was in the bath for longer. I will definitely be doing the ACV bath at least once a week from now on and I highly recommend it.

Hi everyone,

I never write reviews but I really want to because the ACV trick will turn things around.

I'm not going to lie, going straight to the doctor and having my worst fears confirmed, I felt sick. It is very hard to take and accept...all sorts of things run through your head. After shaving completely down there and in good light, I was mortified to see at 13 of these disgusting looking things in my pubic region, mainly on the right side of the shaft. I started using the cream prescribed and after 1 week of nothingness, I was stressing. Mainly because I was about to go on a big vacation over the new year period.

I started the intense ACV treatment late November and these are the Do's and Dont's

First of all, the ACV has to be "with the mother" I tried the other stuff and it didn't work, thank god I gave the other stuff a go before giving up.

I found the most effective method for me was simply just using q tips as opposed to cotton balls and band aids. the problem with the latter is that you cant maintain pressure on the wart and when it comes time to remove the band hurts so much..f that

Dab the q tip in Apple Cider Vinegar and press down on the wart so that no Apple Cider Vinegar runs off anywhere else. I found 10 minutes is enough time needed, going longer made no difference. The wart will be white upon removal, then slowly return to skin color. If it doesn't turn white, it's not a wart.

I would do this once in the morning and again at night before sleep, I experimented with multiple times a day to see if I could speed up the whole process but it made no difference for me.

I noticed on the second night the wart would start to go greyish and by the 3rd night be almost black.

Once it goes black, it no longer responds to the ACV. As in, it won't go white after another 10 minute session...its dead. Leave it. it should get a little smaller on day 4 then on day 5 or 6...its gone!

What not to do: after it goes black after 3 or 4 days, don't try and speed things up by making it fall off by touching it or running too much hot water over it in the shower. If it comes off too early before the new skin grows under it properly, good chance it'll get infected. Happened a few times...because I was in a rush to get rid of them. I had to go on antibiotics to fix that. So for me, from the moment I spot one, I know in 6 days its completely gone and unnoticeable.

This "don't" was scary.

Don't leave the Apple Cider Vinegar on the skin of your penis for too long! .. when I first started the treatment, I had cotton balls of Apple Cider Vinegar everywhere trying to kill the 13 of them, 1 of them was on the penis itself. I can't remember how long I left it..maybe 30 to 40 mins...took it off to see the skin on my dick like a prawn...acv will burn..that skin is a lot more sensitive than other areas. that took about 3 weeks to completely heal.

Once I worked out what works best for me, I could get rid of a new one in 5 days. I noticed after getting rid of all 13,1 would come back every week..but as time passed, they are appearing less and less. 6 months later (today) the longest I've gone is 7 weeks without one coming back. Id love to hear from someone whos been doing this for longer.

I will update again in 6 months

I came to this thread and read until page 7 already but still haven't found an answer to one of my questions about this illness. What I want to know is what made you guys want to remove the warts if studies say it is harmless and will eventually leave on its own? As of this writing, I only have one wart in the foreskin of my penis. God forbid it multiplies. As of the moment, it's not itching nor painful. But I am depressed knowing that this disease has no cure and is bringing me down emotionally. Can someone please be kind enough to enlighten me? Can I just not try to remove it? I am afraid that if I try to do things on my own I might do it the wrong way and make it worse than it is right now. Will the wart grow in size or in number and that's why you guys chose to endure the pain to remove it? I'm really confused and sad about this. Please help me.

Anyone else have this issue? So I put the ACV on my warts. 3 of the 5 actually worked and went away. There's one or two that are feisty and turned swollen and looked almost like it was infected, warm to the touch and reddish around the outside with pain...does anyone know what this could be? Should I get antibiotics or just hold off on anymore ACV for a few days...

Replied by Paul

Yes, leave those ones alone and get on antibiotics. They will heal. You have to be careful about the wart coming off too soon and then getting infected.

Last week I found I had one wart on my labia. In a panic, I searched the internet for a cure and everything pointed to acv. So here's what I did. I got some Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother and put it into a baby food jar with a few drops of tea tree oil. Then I used a cotton ball and dabbed it on for about an hour. Then I took a look. OMG!! I thought what have I done! I could see literally hundreds of them. Tiny compared to the one I started with, but I wanted to cry!!! I cleaned myself with some peroxide and applied vitamin E oil mixed with coconut oil and went to bed reading frantically about what I should do.

The next morning I showered, and dabbed the vinegar mix on again. This time it HURT...but I was determined to give it a good try. Cleaned with peroxide, applied my oil, and went to work. Everytime I went to toilet I cleaned myself with peroxide and reapplied the oil as needed. That night took a shower, and looked. The warts were white, but some looked like little craters, like the little wart had fallen out and just the surrounding skin was left. Excited to see progress, I dabbed my Apple Cider Vinegar cotton ball again. Not kidding...this time made me cry...Very painful. Applied my oil and went to bed.

The next morning I showered and took a look. The warts were white, I had several tiny craters, and some tiny spots bleeding. I did my little routine again. And went to work with my little bottles of oil and peroxide. That evening I showered and took a look. Everything was red and irritated except for little white warts and craters and some small little bloody pinpoints. I decided to take a break and just cleaned with peroxide and applied my oil then went to bed.

The next day everything looks waterlogged, swollen, and angry, so I decide to give it a rest and let things heal up a bit. Over the next couple of days the warts continued to come off, and the ITCHING...whoa...the itching was awful.

I plan to let things heal a couple more days, then repeat the process until all are gone. Currently everything seems to be drying up..the little warts that are left are very hard now but a white, grey color. It's been a total of 7 days since I started.

It works, but might not be an end-all solution...

Bottom line is that it works. Follow the directions outlined in the other posts and you'll have great affect on your warts. That being said, the ACV doesn't kill the virus itself, so new warts may appear as you are treating. I've been using the ACV method for close to a month now, and have believe I have killed the majority of my warts, though several are still lingering. I was diagnosed initially in Feb 2018, received 3 cryo treatments from my derm about 3 weeks apart from each other, but decided to take matters into my own hands after new warts appeared on the shaft of my penis after the third cryo treatment. I treated those, but during ACV treatment more appeared. It's been a bit of a wack-a-mole experience, but at least I know how to kill them. Nights 7 and 8 of treatment were the most painful, but that means it's working. Like everyone else said, it's highly gratifying when you wipe the head off a wart with a cotton ball and hydrogen peroxide after a shower. I'm praying that one day soon they will all disappear for good and I can start to return to a normal life.. Good luck to all!

First of all thank you for all of you who provided awesome feedback on this site, it really is a lifesaver!

Last month I noticed a couple of skin tag on my penis shaft, and they would not go away. They are really tiny like less than 1mm and almost unnoticeable if penis is not erect. A quick web search and I started using vinegar to test it. A couple turned quite white and I had to accept the fact that I have genital warts.

Psychologically it was very tough, especially the first couple of days where I would search for remedies the whole day and had trouble falling asleep at night. Even if I do fell asleep I would wake up in the middle of the night. So when I eventually come across this site, I decided to give it a try no matter what.

My setup is ACV (Heinz), bandaids, tissue paper, hydrogen peroxide and medical tape.

For the ACV I diluted it into 3 parts ACV:1 part water. Some of you went for 1:1 dilution and I thought that might be too mild. I folded up pieces of tissue paper, soak it up with the diluted ACV, slap it on the warts and use a bandaid to hold it it place.

The piece of tissue paper I used was larger than the absorption pad of the bandaid so I used medical tape to make sure that the ACV tissue is tightly in place. I did this for 3-4 days around the clock, replacing the ACV tissue every 8 hours or so (3 times a day). Like many suggests, I used a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide to wash my genital area each time.

By the second day the wart turned grayish white, and a whole bunch (around 15-20) of what I assumed is warts under the skin revealed themselves and became dark red.

The third day was the hardest, it would sting but all in all it was tolerable. I had plantar warts on my foot when I was small and they were removed with the freezing method. The ACV pain is nothing compared to that pain.

I stopped applying the ACV tissue when the skin began to scab up. The scabs fell off after 1-2 days.

I can't say the warts have definitely gone because the skin down there is a bit rough after the treatment. I couldn't really distinguish between dried up skin or a wart at this time. Anyway, I can say the ACV method did work and if the warts come back I would not hesitate to do another round of treatment.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Genital Warts

Definitely worked! My friend told me about using ACV for her skin cancer so I did a google search and found this. I used bandaids and a cotton ball soaked in ACV. I tried to keep on for as long as possible but most only stayed on for 1-2 days. I would replace it with a clean one. If my skin got too raw I took a break. After about 2 months all 12 warts are gone! Just unbelievable. I had tried tea tree before and it did nothing for me. ACV worked quickly.

I swear this ACV works miracles for genital warts. I discovered what I thought might be a wart inside my labia about 14 days ago. About a week ago I took another look and there was MULTIPLE! I would have never known if I didn't inspect because there was absolutely no pain/discomfort. Immediately I called for an appointment with my gynaecologist but could only get a rendez vous in 5 days and I didnt feel it was urgent enough to go to the ER and wait hours on end to see someone who doesn't specialize in this.

I did some research about GW and landed on this site, I figured I would be proactive and give the ACV a try before I met with my Dr. I used the apple cider vinegar Bragg with mother (natural & raw). I am not a person who believes in healing with "natural medication" but I figured it wouldnt hurt to try since there was so much positive feedback on this method. I immediately began treatment. I used gauze because thats what I had on hand at home, I soaked it in the ACV and applied it to the affected warts inside the labia; which as we know is very sensitive for us females. I only applied it for approximately 20 minutes the first night.

I then repeated this method for the next 2 nights. It becomes more and more painful because the skin becomes raw(especially on the inside of the labia) there is no need to push yourself for too long if your really in pain. The tissue that wasnt affected by the warts was starting to peel and become very painful so I then changed my approach for application.

I used a Q-tip and held it down directly on the warts that I could visibly see which there was only 3 small ones left. (Just a couple minutes at a time, whatever I could tolerate pain wise)

After doing this method for 2 nights again everything had disappeared! The skin inside my vagina was still very raw and healing but there was no warts left.

It was then time to see my Dr... I still wanted to be consulted incase there was something I couldnt see higher up.
I explained my situation and the measures I took to treat the bumps (which I believed were warts). He examined me and said that he could not see any warts and it was possible that my ACV treated them before he got a chance to diagnose them as warts.
So Ladies and Gents, I highly suggest you try this method before turning to prescribed medication as it is a natural alternative!!!

And I do have the following questions...

1. Anybody try this method before and never see the warts reappear? (Hoping for this outcome)

2. If I am manipulating the warts in order to apply the ACV is there a chance I can transmit the warts to different parts of the vagina that have not been affected?

Thank you
Best of luck to you all!!!!
Yay for ACV

Hello all, I have question.

I am putting 100% ACV (Bragg's w/mother) onto what I think are genital warts. Day 1 and 2 I put it on with cotton ball and bandaid for about 6 hours. Day 3 (today) I only did about 2 hours since the skin around is getting raw. 1 turned white, stayed white and then turned black. It is currently black, but has not fallen off yet as of day 3. The other smaller warts ( or what I think are warts) turned white all 3 days, but they don't stay white, they turn back to flesh color within a couple hour of me removing the cotton ball. they have clearly also never turned black or fallen off. Is it possible these are not warts then? My other thought is that they could be little bumps/scars from shaving my shaft. All of the warts or potential warts are at the bottom of the shaft on 1 particular side of my penis. for a bit I just thought I was a slopping shaver and was cutting myself in the same spot ( I bleed when I shave my face too). but something made me do the vinegar test and they did turn white. Thanks for any thoughts!

Replied by Mark

The vinegar test will turn anything white, scratches, etc. So it alone is not a good test for genital warts.

I think I have them and they don't turn white. So in all reality we need to go see a doctor, but I'm banking on it clearing on it's own. The ACV didn't work for me, but did leave a nice little scar on my penis

Hello everyone! Back in February I noticed what I thought to be three little white pimples in my anus, at first I didn't pay attention to it and thought it would go away but they didn't. They didn't hurt or anything that's why at first I didn't wanna have them checked. It is just that sometimes I can "feel" them when I walk a lot or at least that's my perception maybe it's all mental haha. I'm currently living in Germany and I'm insured here so at the beginning of April I decided to go to the doctor just in case and use my German insurance.

And yeah, I was diagnosed with condyloma acuminatum, they told me they're not dangerous but contagious and that I needed to be referred to a clinic so that they could take a better look at it and give me a treatment (possibly surgery) I am not afraid of it because they are in the perianal area so I guess that if I end up being operated it won't be bad but as soon as I found out what exactly they were I started looking for home remedies and that's how I found this site. I just started applying the ACV and am pretty confident the warts will fall off. I just have a few questions.

How much ACV exactly should I be using? what do you guys mean when you say you've diluted 1:1 water and vinegar?

Also, does having condylomas automatically mean that I have HPV?

I read that in most cases the body is able to eliminate the virus on its own after a year or two and that's why many people never find out they even had the virus!

I'm feeling a bit ashamed cause what is gonna happen to my sex life? It's not like I am having sex every day but you know what I mean. More importantly, will I be able to have kids? I've always wanted to be a dad and now that I know what I have I don't wanna be spreading the virus let alone infect my possible future wife. The worst part is that I've only had sex like 4 times in my life (I know, lame) and every single time I've used protection that's why it makes me feel upset.

Apple Cider Vinger works for GW

I swear I never do reviews on anything. But because this work so well for me I thought I'd make a post telling people this actually works. I did how most people on here tell you to do and it work . Yes I harm some healthy skin in the process but it was worth it in the end. Yes it will sting and burn sometimes but its so much better than having those things on your penis. Just do as most people on here say and I swear to you it will work.

Please I would like to know if any one has had lip warts ..or recovered from lip warts ..Its been 3months since I kissed this dude and tiny rashes came on the edges of my lips and also the sides. I am so scared. I have had genital warts before and I removed with vinegar, tried doing the same on my lips but the lips are very sensitive ..easily gets sore with the vinegar. NO IT IS NOT HERPES! Please I am open to any ideas to remove this . The tiny rashes arent noticeable except I stretch my lips really hard


Hi jane ... I am suffering from the exact same thing, I kissed a guy and my lips itched me the next day. Now months later tiny little rashes formed at the side of my lips and on my lower lips, it is only visible when I stretch my lips really hard or look with a torch light. The worst thing is that it is spreading! Getting bigger and more visible. I have stopped taking sugar or alcohol as this feeds the virus. I feel sorry for myself most times and regret meeting the guy. Well, the only progress I have made so far was when I applied vinegar and tea trea oil on a cotton wool and placed on the lip ... for like 2 minutes morning and night. It burns the skin so I immediatly put coconut oil which heals the skin instantly. I use the cotton wool to press my lips together with the vinegar. It revealed much more infected part of the lip. The area became white and scary ..but I continued. I tested this on only one side on the lips . after about one week I stopped and the edge of my lips healed and the tiny dots were gone . though its coming back now because I didn't kill the root. Now I am going to try again with crushed aspirin because that was what got rid of my genital wart. And then I am taking 1000mg of vitamin C and lysine. And I put drops of. oregano oil under my tongue to kill the virus, you should google all about that. Good luck and please let me know of your progress.

I am sorry to hear about your lip warts. There was a study at the University of Texas in 2014 that showed that AHCC, a mushroom extract that helps improve your immunity, may be promising as a treatment for HPV and genital warts. The recommendation is to take this supplement at a dose of 3000 mg daily for at least 6 months. I have heard of people taking 3500 or 4500 mg daily for HPV in general. I have been doing this for 6 months and I have not had any new genital warts. The plantar warts (also from a strain of HPV) on my feet disappeared about 1 month after I started this treatment. AHCC is costly (about $110-$150 for two bottles which might last a month at a dose of 3000 mg daily). Some people take AHCC by mouth and use ACV as a topical treatment, and their warts do not return. Hope this helps somewhat.

I 've had warts on my anus for about 2 months now. I've done 3 cryo sessions, tried Warticon, tea tree oil, aloe vera, coconut oil, nothing! They turn my warts white and the ones I have seem to go away but after a few days new ones show up. I'm desperate I don't know what to do. Isn't 2 months more than enough time for the warts to clear up? I didn't expect them to keep coming back and I'm kind of depressed about it now.

So today I tried ACV for the first time. I was scared at first cause everyone says it hurts a lot and from my experience with Warticon I didn't wanna go through this again. But I don't know what else to do. I will update soon with my results.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, I hope this helps. My daughter when she was about ten had warts in the back of her left middle finger. We tried everything, even freezing them (there were two) nothing worked. Until one day I told her to talk to them and tell them she didn't want them or needed them. Few days later they were gone, and have never reappeared. Weird, right! But it worked for her. It costs nothing to try. Thanks

Dear Perry: Not all natural therapies work because the organism inside the warts are different. A rather broad spectrum killing of warts I would prefer to use is" hydrogen peroxide 1% applied directly to the warts for about 1-3 minutes then, this is followed by 50% tea tree oil and 50% lavender oil soaked with a small cotton balls. The bandage is then taped over it overnight and you repeat the entire steps again with hydrogen peroxide, then tea tree oil and lavender for at least two to three weeks for warts to at least be reduced. If the above simple methods don't work we may need to go for a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide at 3% which may sting a bit. If the warts do have a presence of fungus then you may need to add a saturated borax to the 1% hydrogen peroxide before application. Whichever the case, if this remedy do not work as well within 1-3 days try to increase the hydrogen peroxide slowly to 2% then 3%. You should not go beyond 3% as the 3% is already too strong anyway. For most applications, I think a reasonable concentration is 1.5%.

I seriously can't believe this worked. I noticed a small bump on my labia sometime last year, but like the majority of people, hoped for the best and forgot about it. Recently I have been feeling more and more discomfort down there as far as slight itching at times, and noticeably more textured skin as the months went on. I finally had to admit that it was GW.

I started with Tea Tree Oil, after reading about a girl on reddit who cleared everything up in a month with no pain, just using tea tree oil. Well, that girl was a liar. Or very lucky. If anything I think they got worse during the month or so I tried TT oil.

So then I'm getting real frantic; my health insurance doesn't kick in until May, plus I've heard there isn't that much Doctors and their Prescriptions can do for this situation, and that the medicine isn't that effective.

But I found this thread a week ago, and I can honestly say my GW have improved at least 75%. This time next week I think it will be like they were never there at all.

My experience with ACV wasn't exactly the same as everyone else's it seems, so I'll detail what I did, so people know tgere are many ways you can make this stuff work for you.

First day I made the mistake of using cheap stuff without the “mother, " but I slept with it on overnight anyway. The first night is the easiest. You'll wake up wondering why everyone said it hurts so bad, only to find out why on your next application of ACV...

Day 2-4 I didn't sleep with it overnight; instead I did a couple of 3-4 hour sessions throughout the day and let my skin breathe and heal overnight, applying a small amount of coconut oil and sticking some tissue between the labia to help keep things dry. (Moisture is the enemy) By day 3 I also had to start diluting the ACV 1:1 because everything was SO sensitive, but it works almost equally as well.

At this stage everything is going to look red and inflamed, except the warts, which will be white, then slightly Grey-ish.

Day 5-6 and everything seems to be clearing up! I didn't experience as much of things turning black and scabbing off, but most of mine were the “flat" warts, so they basically turned white/Grey, and then the skin started to kind of slough off, almost like a peeling sunburn, revealing little dark pink spots of new skin. A tiny bit of bleeding, but nothing too bad.

My only other suggestion, as with most of these other posters, is to get a bottle of hydrogen peroxide and use it to wash your junk frequently. I use it before and after an ACV treatment, and after every trip to the bathroom.

Good luck y'all!

I just noticed lesions on the inner labia in the last two days. I hadn't any symptoms, no itch or anything. Just happen to touch down there and things didn't feel normal. I started the AVC treatment last night. It is slightly uncomfortable, biting senstation. The lesions turned white, but after taking the ACV off, they went back to the normal color. Is this normal? Also, wondering about the other persons post, starting it didn't work for her. Is is possible she didn't try the treatment long enough. I really hope this works for me. I am super embarrassed. I haven't seen a doctor yet. Trying to rid them in my own. Can anyone give any other advice?

What am I doing wrong?

Hello. I was diagnosed with hpv 9 years ago I never had a single symptom, found out during a pap exam when I got pregnant. Since that initial positive test I have gotten tested every year and it had come back clean. Now 3 weeks ago I noticed what myself and my obgyn thought for almost 15 years was a freckle on inside edge of my outer labia get larger to the point where it looks like a skin tag. I freaked our and got to my doctor the next day. She took a look at it and said the thought it was nothing. She did the vinegar test just to make sure. There was no color change at all. She said she thinks this is just a skin tag or something of the like and we'll keep an eye on it. While I was relieved I was still quite self conscious about it. I had read that ACV can remove both skin tags and warts so I figured give it a go. First few days I took a cotton pad and placed it on the skin tag for 10 minutes. No change. Did that once a day for 3 days straight. Nothhing. So I decided maybe just a q-tip dipped in Apple Cider Vinegar and placed directly on the spot in question would work better. Nope. Nothing. And again I tried this for a few day this time 10 minutes twice a day. So I decided to give it one last go. I soaked a few cotton pads and placed them directly on my vagina unfortunately this method affects both left and righr sides of my inner labia. Just finished day 3 of this and it's safe to day I have acid burns on my inner labia. The skin is white and irritated But the freckle/skin tag/wart remains unchanged. I am at a loss. Is there a better method for applying the ACV to this area than I am able to figure out?

Have you had any luck? I am using the ACV currently. It took a good two days to see any change. I soaked a makeup pad the first night and attempted to sleep with it. But had the urge to pee. So took it out, put another in. During the next day I dosed the area again a few times. Insuring I also cleansed with peroxide or alcohol afterward. The second night I slept with it on the areas. It burned badly for a while, but by morning it had subsided. I got up and removed the pads from the area. And grayish/Black nubs came off when I wiped. Which I've heard this is a good sign. I cleansed with peroxide and dried the area. I am leaving the area for now to dry out and give it a break. After I shower I will cleanse with peroxide again and apply aloe. As the area is very tender and sore currently. But I will continue the treatment. Someone said the blackish stuff is not a good sign. And it will spread all over the body.. is this true? As no one on this site has mentioned any effects like this. I've also being taking multi vitemans, high folic acid, zinc, etc. apparently after researching these can help with fighting from the inside out. However, I have been drinking ACV in water for about a month and just noticed this breakout. So as I do believe it helps things by drinking it. Not sure it completely combats it. That being said, I could have had the outbreak not knowingly. Therefore, having to treat the outside in order to rid the nasty buggers. So ashamed. Even though the research states, HPV is highly contegious and can be transmitted by any skin contact. Not just sexual. I will continue the treatment. I hope it works for everyone. Feedback is very important.

Thank you all for sharing your ecperiences.

I recently had a growth of GW and within a week of ACV the visible cauliflower shaped GW, turned white, then black and just left the skin.

However the spots where the warts were are slightly grey and I am wondering if I need to be continuing the treatment? Its definitely the same skin colour as the rest of my genitals.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Does anyone know about using ACV for internal anal warts? I tried a 50/50 dilution but it was unbearably painful. At 25/75 now. I can leave that in for quite a while. Just worried it will no longer be effective at such a dilution. Anybody have advice on this?

Using ACV hurts like a SOB but don't be a pussy and don't dilute the AVC. Go beast mode and slap that vinegar on there with a bandaid. Do this once in the morning 30 min after your shower, then again in the night 30 min after you shower. Do this for 2-3 days! The warts will first turn white, then black. Once they turn black, apply castor oil for recovery. You will heal up good as new in a matter of a couple of days. Good luck.
