I've been trying the ACV treatment on my warts for about 1 week now. And I am happy to say that it works! I've been struggling with this since about January when I got my first outbreak. I didn't want to go to the doctor because I was embarassed, so I checked on line. I found this product called "Warts No More". IT DOESN'T WORK. It did, however, help spread my 4 or 5 warts to something like 30. It was a waste of money and very frustrating. I also used Compound W "Freeze Off", and that took care of one of the bigger ones, but about a month ago it came back as two smaller ones. I also tried salycilic acid (Wart Stick), which is the highest content of salycilic acid I could find over the counter (20%), but it was way too rough on that sensitive of an area. So I stop after a week, and let all the skin heal--no scars thankfully. So, this brings me to ACV. I read something about a "Vinegar Test" doctors use to determine if someone has GW. Still in denial, I tried it out a couple of times-I saw no results. However it appeared that the warts had gotten smaller. That's when, on a web search I found this site. I've been taken 3 3 Garlic Pills a day (jury's still out on that, I don't know how much effect its having, they do appear a bit more under control, and they are getting smaller) for about a week now. I have also been doing an ACV wash twice a day after my showers, as well as applying ACV directly with a swab for 10 minutes twice a day on the two warts mentioned above. I've been doing the direct application for 3 days, and today, I see only two scabs where those hideous things had been. I'll keep you all posted on the progress of this treatment for the other warts. But, for once, I think something is truly working. Save your money! Go buy some ACV at the supermarket, and pop some garlic pills for good measure. You will be pleasantly surprised. I was! Good luck to all of you.
I would like to thank EL AHR and the rest for their wounderfull recommendation on using APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, TEA TREE OIL. I had genital warts just one big a size of key hole below my butt that was frozen after my ex- admitted that he had an affiar 4 years ago. However it came back. I did not bother to do a thing until four days ago something promt me to look for home remedy. To my shock I bought all the above and within two days the wart turned white and fall off. To be honest thr treatment was painful but believe me just as the rest of you its worth. ACV. And Tea tree oil burns, but Hydroegen peroxide 3% does'nt. I am will continue to use Hydrogen peroxide at least for two weeks as I get ready to go for my annual pap- smear test (women wellness). Thanks to Eath Clincic and the Rest of you who have tried ACV, Tea Tree and successed you all are great. I would wish the rest safe and protect youself fro STDs.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil
I am a young male and after discovering the genital warts I was desperate to get rid of them. I really wanted to avoid the doctor because I had read many reviews about the poor results with prescription creams, etc. I found ACV and gave it a try. At first, I just applied ACV soaked cotton balls and wrapped them in band-aids. Long story short, the band aids fell off halfway through the night and I never got the full effects of the ACV. I knew it was working because they hurt and turned white, but the ACV duration just was not long enough.
I upgraded to strong adhesive waterproof medical tape and instead of just ACV, I made a solution of ACV and added a few splashes of Tea Tree Oil. I soaked the cotton balls in the concoction, covered the several areas of warts and covered my penis with tape. I mean covered. The tape was not coming off this time (I did tape a little tighter near the head of my penis to avoid any irritation caused by excess fluid. ) I didn't sleep much that night. I have a high pain tolerance but that was some of the worst pain I have ever felt. I tossed and turned but I knew a few nights of suffering would be worth it. I woke up the next morning in pain and immediately tore off the bandages. The areas covered with cotton balls were greenish/bluish gray. I was quite nervous. I thought maybe I had wrapped it too tight and cut off some circulation or not allowed any air to penetrate. Needless to say I did more research online and didn't find anything strange. I kept going with the treatment. The next few nights I couldn't even keep the bandages on all night due to the pain, but I wore the ACV and tea tree oil mixture for several hours during the day. The whole time I made sure to keep the area clean and put neosporin on when not saturating with ACV and TTO. Within a week or so my skin was raw and hurt. I decided to stop treating the area, but continued wearing neosporin.
After the area healed some I treated again, but focued more on using tea tree oil. In fact, I rarely wore ACV again and found TTO to be generally more pleasant, although it still hurt.
I finally stopped all treatment after a little over a week of vigorous treatments and a lot of pain. The skin took over three weeks to heal back, but two months later I am completely wart free.
However, I must warn that I do have one small scar and a larger sized scar on the shaft of my penis. If you are going to do this treatment get some scar reducing cream right away and apply as soon as the wound has healed enough.
I pray the warts don't come back because this treament is PAINFUL. However, it was completely worth the pain for me.
I don't have a certain recipe for the TTO and ACV mixture nor a certain schedule I followed.
1) Start with the mix at night and wear for as long as possible
2) Let breathe during the whole day or do another round of treatment for a few hours
3) Make sure you are constantly keeping the area clean and use triple antibiotic cream (Neosporin)
4)Shift towards TTO once the skin is raw
5) Neosporin and scar gel
Good luck and stick with the treatment!
I also want to thank everyone for their input. This disease is embarrassing, but thanks to everyone that submitted their story, everyone can hopefully treat, if not cure themselves. Thanks to everyone and Earth Clinic
I used ACV and it removed my warts, but they returned. Frustrated, I looked into tea tree oil. I applied it with a q-tip two times a day. After a week they are gone. I also started taking 550mg of elderberry extract two times a day to help my body fight the virus. Hope this can help someone.
I found out I had genital warts when I was pregnant with my second child. They just seemed to appear out of nowhere one day. I have no idea who/when. The doctor told me I could have had HPV for years and the pregnancy was the reason they decided to make their appearance. That was about 5 years ago. Ever since, I've done countless hours of research learning about it and trying to find a way to get rid of them without breaking the bank. I read numerous times that they most often just go away on their own, or that peolple have "outbreaks" as they would with herpes. I am not one of those people. From the day they appeared they have never left. I only have them on the inner lips of my vagina. They start small closer to my anus with the biggest at the top only about half way up. On the left side I have 3 small ones and one larger cluster, slightly flat but with the telltale cauliflour shape to it. On the right I have about 6 small-ish ones going in a straight line upwards. Also with this I tend to have a large amount of discharge most of the time. (sorry for the TMI)
Since I don't really have the funds to go the doctor to get them removed, I started researching home remedies. Like so many others I came across the apple cider vinegar remedy. Since my life is more often than not extremely hectic, I've tried it many times but never kept up with it.
Finally I'm trying to keep on top of it this time so this is what I'm doing:
Vitamins: (because immune system is key to kicking this things butt)
Vitamin E, Vitamin C, L-Lysine, Odorless Garlic Pills, Vitamin D... Also a TON of water and green tea everyday. I'm really trying to quit smoking also, but still working on it.
ACV and tea tree oil combo: Before doing anything, first clean the area - I use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. DO NOT do this if you have any open wounds or highly irritated skin because it WILL HURT!! To avoid irritating the surrounding skin, I cover the other areas in diaper rash cream or vitamin e oil. First, I take a cotton ball and make sure to cover all the warts in tea tree oil. (it irritates some peoples skin, so you can dilute it with a bit water if you need to. ) Next, I soak a cotton ball in ACV and stretch it out to the size I need in order to cover the entire area. Then I tape it down with medical tape (you can use band aids or something else like that - but be careful in that area because it'll hurt coming off! ) I personally leave mine on for large blocks of time, changing it when I go to the bathroom, take a shower or after keeping it on overnight. The important thing to remember is to keep the area as clean as possible and do not let the dressings get wet. The warts thrive on moisture. Usually after the first full day, the warts start to turn back in spots and eventually the whole thing will. They also tend to get hard. The tiny ones seem to shrink in size and eventually disappear. Im at the turning back and hard phase right now so I'll check back soon when I get some substantial results and let everyone know how it goes.
Disclaimer: ACV has a tendency to sting especially if you have any warts that are irritated at all. I personally don't have a low pain tolerance so it really wasn't that bad for me. Everyone is different. Its proabably wise to take a break for a couple days every other week especially if you are experiencing a lot of irritation or burning. Diaper rash cream with zinc oxide in it is a great thing to put on whole area, warts and all, in the meantime during breaks.
I'll check back soon with a report and good luck to everyone else! Have patience.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil, Supplements
So...Let me begin with this. Ive always been one of those people thats incredibly fearful of disease and i have always taken precautions and used protection. I havent had a lot of partners either. And ive read of people saying on different forums they have only been with 2 people and have found these little buggers! Anyway i digress. Back in Dec i felt some odd little bumps around the top of the outside of my vaginal lips. I freaked out. At first i just assumed well it could be an ingrown hair! So i got mirror and looked at it. There it was peering back at me. Something that looked like it could possibly be a wart. I needless to say freaked out went online and looked up pictures. It was hard to find anything that wasnt incredibly severe. So i called up the clinics. Nowhere had an appt avalible until APRIL!!! Some even later than that like in may. So i took it upon myself to seek out something online. I found this site.
I went out and bought some ACV and tea tree oil. Along with a bottle of vitamin c.
I did the vinegar test and the only one that popped up was the one that i had seen. I treated it for 2 days. It just turned grey and came off in the shower. I was excited and in the clear. Or so i thought....
About a week and a half ago. I was feeling around and i noticed it was back. And it came with friends. About 4 of them that were raised and flat all in a row next to each other in the same area. I took it as maybe some chaffing actually at first and used A&D. No change. So my fear was realized it was again a wart plus some.
So i pulled out the ACV again and i did the test. AND MY GOD! There had to have been 100s all along my lips that i didnt even know where there! They all turned white.
So i did more research online and went and got some more herbal suppliments as well.
I got a bottle of olive leaf extract, garlic tablets and i got some just over all womens once daily suppliments.
I started the acv treatment again yesterday. It stung like hell for about 20 minutes but i knew i had to tough it out. I kept it on for about 2 hours. And for me the placement of them makes things difficult as i cant really tape the cotton balls down. They arent anywhere near my clitoris which i guess is great. As i said just on the lining of the inner lips more or less. So ive been taking toilet paper (not alot) And covering my clitoris with it. But using enough to where i can put the cotton balls soaked with acv around it and the wad of toilet paper helps keep them in place. Anyway after the first 2 hours i took it off for about maybe one and then did it all over again for probably another 2 1/2 hours. So in total about 4 1/2 hours.
I examined myself again after the second treatment yesterday and some of them where already turning grey. I was rather excited. I cleaned everything off with peroxide and applied some tea tree oil.
I just finished a shower. And while cleaninging myself off i think i scrubbed a little too hard as some areas that i had been treating were a little raw i noticed when i was applying my treatment. This time it BURNED and stung like hell when i first put it all on so much to the point where i was actually shaking in pain. Really i felt like ripping everything off but when i thought of how some of the spots were already grey i felt i had come to far and could NOT back down now. So i endured. It took longer today for the stinging to subside. And it has mostly now its a rather dull sting thats bearable. But ive had it on for about an hour and a half so far today. Depending on how it turns out today and by the amount of stinging i endured upon first applying. I might take a break tomorrow. But if i see alot of progress im going to grit my teeth and bear it again tomorrow before taking a break from it. Or either just treat the areas that are more visable as opposed to the ones that arent.
Ill post back with an update soon. Wish me luck!
I found that if you take 500mg of vitamin C with the ACV treatment not only does it heal quicker they won't come back!
This is a very good remedy that works in about 3 days. My GW was about the size of a lima bean but now its not there. It disappeared. Take the onions and blend the. Add a table spoon or so of salt to draw the juice out of the onion. Then let stay over night. Take an aspirin pill and grind it so it will be like powder. Apply the onion juice on the warts and and then apply the aspirin powder to the soaked wart so it will be paste like.
JUST THOUGHT ID LET U ALL KNOW THAT SMOKING CAN HELP WARTS GROW..THE RESULTS SEEM MIXED BUT IN MY CASE(I CHEWED TOBACCO) I STOPPED AND NOTICED A BIG DIFFERENCE IN JUST A FEW DAYS..I WOULD SUGGEST AT LEAST GIVING IT A TRY AND STOP SMOKING FOR A WEEK AND SEE WHAT DIFFERENCE IT MAKES..
I had warts on my vagina and came across this article of curing warts with banana peel. All I needed was a medical tape..tea tree oil and banana peel. I washed the area and dried the tiny lil things there...i applied a lil oil on them and yes they burned I then put lil drops of oil on the peel and placed on the warts the whole night. It would burn becoz of tea tree oil but after an hr or so the pain goes away....i kept it the whole night and in the morning I noticed the smaller ones had even disappeared n the larger one turned brown and the size was even half.....i repeated it the following night and the next morning..almost everything was gone...it only took 3 nights to clear the vaginal warts using banana peel and tea tree oil. Im really greatful for this remedy...i also suffered from yeast infections but when I took the banana peel and oil remedy.. everything vanished.....Banana peel rily works and its very efficient.. I would recommend this remedy if you have similar problem.
I want to thank you so much. The banana peel remedy for GW worked! I started with Apple Cider Vinegar and a small outbreak spread to hundreds around my anus. It was very painful. I was so scared and embarrassed. Using the peels took 2 months and I did it three nights a week. It wasn't painful and they are gone. I feel much better about myself after so much depression. Thank you for this forum and for the people who share their experiences.

Banana peel cured genital warts in 2,5 weeks.
About 4 weeks ago I discovered about 4 genital warts around the pubic area, and on the base of the penis. I was suprised because I always use condoms, after reading a lot on the internet I found that condoms do not protect you against this virus, I will be more carfull who I am going to date from now on.
After a week I found the banana peel remedy for other kinds of warts on this website and my logic said that this must then also work on genital warts.
There where a few new small warts by this time I started taping banana peels on to my pubic area and around the penis.( the white side on the skin )
I was wearing it during the day but took it off at night.(could have better left them on but could not for personal reasons)I tapped fress ones on every day.
After 3 days one was gone and 2 others ( the biggest ones ) where turning red ( it did take an other 2 weeks for 1 to go away completely the other one just srunk and became a little white dot, like a pimple ) some small ones also turned red, those smal ones disappeared after about one week.
When I started I used peels from ripe bananas but I read some stuff about using peels from green bananas, I tried the peels from green bananas and after one day almost al the warts turned red or the skin around them was red. ( this is a signal that the treatment is working) after 3 days with the green peels most where almost gone.
There where a view that did not react to the treatment at all, ( clipped those off with a nale clipper and carefully burned the smal blood vains shut with a hot paperclip end, this is not something I advise you to do, I just don''t have the patients.)
After the burning I took a bananapeel and scraped some white stuff off with my nail and stuck it on the little wound and tapped a other peel on it. Now they are all gone except for one that is one that did react to the treatment and became very small, It will be gone in a view days.
Overall it has 3,5 weeks since I have discovered the warts anns 2,5 weeks since I started the banana peel treatment. Now they are all as good as gone.
For what I have read about genital warts there is no treatment that works this fast.
regular creams take 2 months to work.
-Use peels from green bananas because they work much much better.
-wear them as much as you can at night and day time
-shower every 3 days instead of every day but do change the peels every days ( this accumulates the active ingridients from the banana on your skin.
-use special bandage tape to tape the peels on your skin I first used ducetape and found after a couple of days it turned my skin red and really itchy
The warts I had where small the biggest where 3mm in diameter they where on the base of the penis and on the pubic area (where the pubic hear grows)
I had about 20 most of them very small.
For me it did work on most warts, and it kept the ones I clipped off away.
I am very happy that I found this website and tried the treatment.
I hope I can help some people with there problem and give them hope for a fast recovery.
I also want to wish you luck and strength because I know how you feel,... it sucks but here is the cure!
Apply bananna peel to warts by taping it on for about a week or a week and a half and you wont beleive your eyes, the warts will shrink, then dry up and the last little bit will fall off, unbeleivable, i tapped a piece of bananna to my pubic area every day b4 goin to work and after a week no more warts, and they were fairly big, i am so happy they are gone. Hope this advice helps!
Also ate more popatoes with skins on and ate a bananna a day to increase my potassium intake to help fightt the warts.

Not to lower the tone... I contracted genital warts some years ago and underwent cryotherapy and used Imiquimod to clear them up. And they disappeared - or so I thought. Recently one reappeared. The horror, the horror. It was tiny, I'll admit, and I thought I would try banana skin before going through the abject humiliation and misery of seeing my doctor. Today I went and bought bananas and applied a little piece of skin to the wart... (Not in the supermarket, obviously...) After five hours, maybe even less, I CAN'T FIND THE WART. I was very sceptical prior to trying this, I confess to not having had much faith at all. If you're reading this and wondering if all these stories are written by quacks or nutcases - they're not. I've never written something like this before, but something that works so well, so easily, has to be shared. If I'd only known all those years ago. Thanks for the help!
EC: Read all the banana peel feedback here.
Let me tell u what really works. I used a BC powder, banana peel, tea tree oil, guaze pads, neosporin & medical tape... I took a cotton ball saturated the banana peel with the tea tree oil, then put the entire pack of bc powder in it... I taped it to the warts before bed left on over night (only do this once)... it will sting & even burn a bit... not to bad though . When u wake it will be a gray or white ... possibly even swollen... don't be alarmed. I almost freaked out myself but stay calm you'll thank me tomorrow. Take baths instead of showers soaking in warm to hot warm gets it off faster ... I went to wipe myself the next morning the warts were in my hand... it was like a chemical peel. I had lots of tiny warts.. once it all peels off apply neosporin as a skin protectant or Vaseline. You're welcome.
