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.
It is not true that HPV lives in the blood. It lives in and on tissue. That is why there is no HPV blood test. Does not live in the blood! It is also not true that you have the virus for the rest of your life. There are many strains of HPV. Once you are infected, the virus either lays dormant, becomes activated (stress, low immune system), or goes away completely. Once your body kills the virus, you are immune to that strain. However, you can become infected with the many other strains that cause genital warts. People can carry the virus on their skin and have no symptoms.
I was diagnosed with genital warts last year. Have been symptomless for several months. I used 13% food grade hydrogen peroxide on the whole area (warts will turn white. Any breaks in the skin can turn white too) in addition to TCA applied by a physician. I was treated for 3 months before I saw any improvement. Vitamins are essential! I only use vitamins derived from raw foods/whole foods. Synthetic vitamins are not what your body wants or needs. You pee them out. Waste of $$. Also I used and still use antiviral herbs and medicinal mushrooms. I really feel that the mushrooms were the missing link for me. I use __________ brand (I take the ______ blend along with Reishi and Agarikon capsules). I went to an herbalist and she recommended copious amounts of lemon balm tea along with ______ tincture by _____ (warning: contains lomantium which, in rare cases, can cause rashes. I never developed a rash. Can also put the tincuture on the actual wart, which I also did. Hurts like hell tho). And I juice raw vegetables and fruits and get colonics. Green is clean as they say. I hope my warts have been killed but I try not to concern myself too much about it. I do believe stress can override any of the good things you do to boost the immune system.

BHT from Life Extension, Twin Labs. Take a pill a day. It hurts the virus so the body can detect it. It is a food preservative but has few negatives. It keep Herpes from making a fat cell like coating on it so the body can see it and kill it. I found out by using it it works for HPV. I did not have herpes but found out for someone else.
ACV, Aspirin, Vit E, Tea Tree Oil
Hey guys. I am so grateful I came across this website/GW forum. In return, I thought I would tell you my experience and what worked for me. A couple months ago I had hard, skin colored bumps down there that appeared out of nowhere. I haven't had many sexual partners, nor have I been sexual active in about half a year. I couldn't understand what was happening. Went to walk in clinic and got diagnosed with GW's. I was embarassed and horrified. If you do your research, you will come to understand that this condition is fairly common and I could have had it from 4 partners ago, you're not able to tell. A lot of people have it and don't even know. Until your body can't fight it anymore and perhaps an event in your life such as high stress will finally bring them out. So, I picked up my prescription, condyline. I applied it to the area twice daily, 3 days in a row. Watts turned white but no sign of progression. I thought there has to be something else out there when I came across this website.
My home remedy: stopped applying condyline. I made a paste of 2 extra strength aspirin (crushed), tea tree oil, vitamin e oil and apple cider vinegar until consistent. I applied it on a few pieces of gauze and put it down on my spots for 20 minutes. It was highly uncomfortable and painful, as in burning. Took it off and carefully cleansed myself. For the next couple days I was in pain. I burned myself. Good news was that all the warts were wiping off until there were none! I was ecstatic and my region healed from the burning. (I applied aloe Vera a few times a day and vitamin e oil to ease the pain). I think because I used condyline right before that treatment, that also burned Mr it was a lot at once so that's why I burned myself).
Also tip: the Apple Cider Vinegar makes all the warts turn white and you can see all the regions affected that may not have popped out yet. Extra precautions: take apple cider vinegar tablets daily. I take 2-4. (This isn't new to me). Now and then drink a glass of water in the morning with 1-2 tbsp. Of Apple Cider Vinegar as well.
Go to your local health store and pick up immune system strengthening pills, do a trial. Your immune system needs to be strong again! Apply tea tree oil every now and then. Eat healthy and exercise. You gotta do what you gotta do. Healthy lifestyle, keep taking precautions and keep that happy level up and stress low. Now chin up! You got this.

Genital Wart Advice
Hello 25yr old Male from Califorina USA - I have been on this site for quite sometime now, and I was debating whether or not try the above recommendation given. I've been suffering with Anal Gential warts for a few months now. I already went to the dr once and had it removed. Most embarrassing moment ever!! Never will do it again. So I decied to try this.

-Vitamin C Pills (Chewable kind)
-Garlic Oil Pill (Natural one, not the ordoless)
-Fish Oil Pill
-Apple Cider Vinegar Organic
-Tea Tree Oil
I want to get rid of this virus as soon as I can. So I will be updating you daily, if not weekly how my progress has been going.

Going to try this twice a day. Morning and Night. Will let you know the results!
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!
Genital Wart Advice
While I'm thankful for this apple cider vinegar at-home treatment (while looking up common warts) and seeing that there are some success rates with it in the comfort of your own home, I hope anyone reading these posts sees a doctor, especially females and regardless if the warts were removed or not via this method. I also hope those of you seeing all of these make sure to get the facts on the GW/HPV virus.
I've had GW/HPV (human papilloma virus) since I was 15, and am now well into my 30s. I understand you all are embarrassed to see a doctor about this, but trust me...they've seen it a bazillion times before, as millions of people have it or have had it, many without even being aware of it.
FACT: Removal of the wart does not cure you of the virus. There is no cure! Can it go away? Studies now show that body may be able to cure it on its own, but only time and proper testing (PAPs for women) can tell.
FACT: Just because the wart is not present, does not mean you do not have the virus still and aren't likely spreading it to your partner(s), and they, in turn, aren't spreading it back to you and whomever else they end up with. Be responsible and tell your partners.
FACT: Just because a wart is removed or goes away on its own, which it can, does not mean that it won't come back. Chances are it will.
FACT: There are several types/strands of HPV--some that cause GW, but also ones that can cause cervical cancer. You may even have more than one strand that you aren't aware of, which may not even effect you (guys) but your partner. Again, be responsible with yourself and your partners. Wear a condom, though this is not a straight way to prevent from spreading the virus, but helps and you can help prevent reoccurring outbreaks.Is it embarrassing to tell people? Yes, but they will respect you for it and I've not had any problems over it.
FACT: Anyone can carry the HPV virus and, again, not show signs ever of even having it or, as some have claimed before more outbreaks, thinking they have a blemish or ingrown hair. Some men, for instance, may never show signs of having it and there are no tests for men to see if they have it, short of out breaks.
FACT: GW/HPV can lie dormant for years and show signs later on. Always be safe.
FACT: Embarrassed? You're not alone! More than 50% of sexually-active people carry this virus/infection, and it is the most commonly transmitted virus in the United States.
I hate to nag, but I really think people need to do their research and not just rely on home remedies and ignorance, as this is what causes the billions of outbreaks out there of the HPV virus to the point where it's at. Yes, billions. This is your health, your body, take care of it and know what you're dealing with, as well as those around you.
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..
Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil, Elderberry
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.
Genital Wart Advice
Reading some previous posts, I would like to give some friendly advice. I work in the medical field so I have spoken to a few doctors about the HPV & many are suprised that ACV worked! But I also had many questions answered too! Just so I could be clear on how to deal with genital warts.
So, here goes:
1.) You CAN NOT spread the warts to other areas of your body. If it is the genital strain, its stays there. You also can not usually spread to your mouth as that is yet another strain of HPV. So, for those people worring about that, relax! I see that many people put the ACV on their mouths & were freaked that they saw little white bumps, but be aware, as when they test you using vinegar, even a regular bump can turn white. Also, the small pores around & right inside your mouth are sensitive, they will react to the vinegar, so don't automatically assume you have warts there. Get checked!
2.) Many people say they treated the warts without seeing a doctor. Please get checked. Yes, it is an embarassment. But some of the strains cause cancer. Not just in women, with cervical cancer. But men can also get rectal cancer. So, for your own safety, see a doctor. Just remember, that just because, there are no warts, does not mean there is nothing else going on with your body.
3.) Shaving will NOT spread the warts unless you cut yourself, so just shave carefully & you will be fine. Also, even if you do cut your self or get razor burn, cleance the area & keep using the Tea Tree oil after shaving. This will kill any germs, stop infection & any new spread of warts.
4.) For those people freaking out & using lysol on their pants. Going to extreme measures to kill anything that might be on them or their clothes. CALM DOWN, the stress and worry is not helping. Yes, be hygienic, be clean, but don't crazy trying to kill what isn't even there. Regular washing of clothes, bedding & whatnot is good enough to kill germs.
5.) Also, SHOWER SOAPS & GELS, DO NOT SPREAD WARTS. Don't believe averything that you read. This was one of the questions I had about the warts. And 3 different doctors from my work, confirmed that it is NOT TRUE. The spead from cuts & spread of the virus that causes it. Another reason you should speak to your doctor, have all your questions ready & ask! Get the right information.
I was just wanted to bring those points up so that maybe some others can relieve a little of their stress dealing with HPV. I would also say that if ACV doesn't work right away, don't give up! Give it time & soon you could be wart free & on the way to recovery. I wish you all the best.
EC: Thank you for clarifying. We removed the post with misinformation.
First of all I would like to say that this site is a good site and was helpful to me. There are 2 problems that I have with some of the posts here. 1) Most people who post here do so after their warts start to turn black and claim success. Few posts are from people who follow up with a new post months or a year later. My experience was that there are more warts than you initially think there are and you end up doing multiple treatments that can actually last a year or more. 18 months ago I thought I had 4 or 5 warts and it turned out to be 50 or more. Some came back, some grew new, some were not visible until I put ACV on them. I had to do 7 treatments in 18 months and now feel wart free so this does work. It is also a good idea to do these treatments on a regular maintenance schedule. Every 3 months or so just do a quick 2 day treatment and you will kill any of the new warts before they get big. You may need to do this for life. These treatments are quick and easy. 2 days of ACV and 3-4 days to heal.
I also had 2 variations of warts(2 strains of HPV I guess). One responded quickly to ACV treatment. The other type would grow big when ACV was used and would not turn black before my skin was completely trashed. What I did was to use ACV and when the wart got big I then froze it with OTC wart freeze treatment. I then applied ACV with a Q-tip rather than beat up all of the skin and a few days later the wart head fell off but nothing turned black so I continued to use ACV and after a few more days the things cratered and turned black. This crater took 2 weeks before it healed but the wart. A couple of months later I used ACV to find a few more of these buggers and this time I didn't wait until the top fell off. I froze them then the next day put ACV on it and cleaned with alcohol and after it dried I took my finger nail and ripped the suckers off and immediately hit it with ACV. They turned black the next day. It still took 2 weeks for these to heal but I did knock one week off the total treatment. I learned this from a post on this site.
The second problem I have is with some of the advice. For instance, someone has posted that you can't spread warts by shaving as long as you don't bleed. This is ridiculous. Warts shed the virus through the skin. You can't tell me that they can be spread by simple contact with them but a razor going over them won't spread them unless you slice into the wart???? That advice is completely over the top and incorrect. It's not even logical. Unfortunately, if you shave you should stop until you have cleared up the warts. So, don't believe everything you read here but mostly the advice is good.
Lastly, if you think that you have a few warts in one area and want to just treat that area initially, forget it. Your first treatment should be as large of an area as you can stand to do. Not only will you save alot of time by avoiding additional treatments, but you will also understand the extent of your problem rather quickly.
For multiple treatments: when you do a treatment with ACV you will lose layer(s) of skin. You have to wait a period of time to heal before you do another treatment. I have repeated a treatment in the same area in as little as 6 weeks and didn't have a problem. I would recommend 8-10 weeks for a large treatment area.
I also added some of the internal treatments as recommended on this site. I am taking black elder berry and green tea extract and added vitamin C, E, potassium, folic acid and pantotheric acid to my regular multi-vitamin. No new warts have been found since I started the internal treatments.
I now believe that I can live with HPV. I will add that when you first figure out that you have warts it will be a psychologic roller coaster. You will think that your life is over. Don't take 18 months like I did to get this taken care of. Hit it hard and fast with everything you learned from this site. If I knew then what I know now this would have taken 3-4 months rather than 18 months to resolve. For those of you who do one treatment and you're done, good for you. I have a feeling though that your "yippee this worked for me" posts were a little premature and most people will not be so lucky. For your first treatment, plan on 7-10 days for full healing. Additional maintenance treatments, plan on 5-7 days.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic
I have bad stomach cramps too. I thought it was just me..I never had this either and it's my first time . I just started the apple cider vinegar thing now. I taped it on and I plan on keeping it on for 4hr but it's burning a little but I can make it through cause a lot of people says it works.
Please do some research before you get any vaccine! HPV vaccines have horrible side effects, which have killed, and caused people life long disabilities. I don't believe that every woman over the age of 25 has been exposed to HPV. I have had tests done, including blood work, and I am over the "limit" and show no signs of this illness. I would suggest checking for a correlation between your outbreaks and things you eat, use, or are exposed to. Herpes outbreaks react to environmental factors, and HPV ones might also.
Again this isnt very natural but i insist it is worth while...
Back in the day i had a G/f with a bird. im allergic so i was getting lesions?.. i wonted is theres a mold or something associated with those animals.. anyhow, she had had Genital warts, I didnt know... i ended up with dyer skin on my Wang :) and resultingly i aquired a cauliflower kinda wart thing. Talking about feeling like totally helpless. I looked on the net for a solution and at that time didnt come across anything except a machine....
It was a magnetic pulser. prolly 300$ i thought well its that or my junk is gunna fall off. :) so rather quickly i got the machine and started an intense pulsing on my penis. probbaly 6 times a day for about 5 minutes. glad to say after 4 days it was going/gone. i kept it up for a while....
Nothings ever scared me that much. apprently the machine bring better circulation to the area and the magnetics kill alot of different things...
i bought an ozone generator and colloid silver generator because it that gizmo works the other should... the zilver thing is said to kill over 700 kinds of viruses, fungi, bacteria ect... 700 seems like alot but apparently its so cheap to manufacture that in the 50's they got away from from it cause theres was more money in antibiotics and not fixing the problem...
thanks and i hope my story helps anyone with a persistant problem...
I'm sure like everyone else who first discovers genital warts i was confused! i always thought i was being so careful, but i guess somewhere along the line i wasn't. So i went straight on line to research my options, my are just inside my vagina and i noticed everyone explaining how they had used the doctor prescribed medicines with very little results, i needed something to work and take them away without the stress of returning visits to the doctors. I first tried the natural oils you can buy on line, and they don't work at all, not even reducing them just a little. I then came across this great web site, and people explaining the great results with garlic, i decided to go out straight away and buy some liquid tablets. I found in a health shop that you can buy liquid garlic which you can add to your drink twice a day. I thought it would work far faster that way. So only at the weekend i started taking 2 teaspoons of ordorless liquid garlic in to any drink once in the morning and once at night. Within 3 days i saw that they were reducing in size. I now have started to soak a cotton ball into the garlic liquid and placing onto the warts for 10 mins twice a day. I have seen a huge difference, i am going to continue to do this until they are cleared completely, i did buy a immune boost tablet just for good measure which i'm taking 3 times a day. If you are also suffering with genital warts i would really try this, its a cheap option and it is really working! i'll keep you posted.
Wanted to get back to you all. I was writing a huge posting just a minute ago, I don't know if it posted or if my computer erased it, but here is the info again.
For the last 2.5 months I've been taking garlic pills, the last 1.5 months, I've been using the liquid inside the softgels and applying it as a lotion plus taking the pills. I've seen great results using the cream, but for the month that I was only taking the pills, they did absoulutely nothing. About 2 weeks in to using the lotion I ran out of the pills I had been using (Sundown Odorless Garlic) and bought another, less potent brand. All of the reaction that had been going on in the area affected by GW stopped and started to heal. After it was pretty much healed up, I noticed that a lot of the warts were gone, and some were barely visible. I don't know if they are still warts, or if what I'm seeing are just little scars. Anyhow, thinking that the job wasn't done, I went and bought the Sundown brand, and started using it again for the last 2 weeks. The reaction hasn't been as dramatic as before, but, some of the skin is starting to flake off again, and it appears that the warts/scars(?) are getting smaller.
In my previous posting I mentioned that I was using ACV as a wash 2 times a day on the affected area. Two days after I wrote that, I had to stop doing it. The pain was almost unbearable. However, the wart I had been spot treating with a swab was gone. After about a week of healing, the skin was healed and no sign of the wart, except for some very light, minimal scarring.
Using my experience, this is what I recommend to you guys:
1. Take 3 Garlic Soft Gels (Sundown--73.5mg, if you can) twice a day for good measure, but I really don't think it's doing anything for you, but keeping your cholesterol levels low
2. Apply the gel from one soft gel to the affected area twice a day to stop and eliminate many small warts.
3. Spot treat larger warts with a ACV on a swab directly applied to the wart twice a day for 10 minutes each time.
One last thing, when the skin starts flaking off when you are using the garlic gel, it will be a little painful. On a scale of 1 to 10, the ACV I was doing hurt at about an 8; the garlic gel treatment, at about a 4 and only when I was washing in the shower.
This method is working for me, and I am seeing results. I hope this helps. Once again, good luck to all of you.
Hello everyone. I wanted to get back to you all in reference to my two previous entries into this web-site. Well after a year of trying multiple different organic cures for Genital Warts I gave up. I tried Garlic (useless)/Coconut Oil (useless)/Tea Tree Oil (useless)/ACV (effective-but not 100% for me). So, I broke down and went to see a dermatologist and there was some good news, some bad news. The majority of the "warts" I had weren't warts in the first place, they were something called "Pearly Penile Papules". Harmless, non-contagious growths. However, there was one genital wart. He froze it with liquid nitrogen, and said that in a couple of weeks it will probably be gone. Now, I ask you, was a years worth of torturing myself with different medications, thinking I had a more severe case of warts than what was actually the case worth it? No. I could have been done with this 1 year ago, instead my life was stilted for that whole year. Go see a dermatologist and he will take care of the problem, and tell you what it is you have. Looking at pictures on the web, and trying to figure out what you have will leave you like me-wasting a lot of time, frustrated and depressed. The procedure was relatively painless and quick. Save yourself the heartache and go see a doctor. Nothing to be embarassed about, as some statistics say that 50% of the population has genital warts at least once in their life. Doctor's respect your privacy, and will get you taken care of as quickly as possible. Good luck everyone. I hope that my story helps/convinces some of you to go see your doctor/dermatologist. Take Care!
Garlic, Red Wine Vinegar
I would like to give an update on the garlic and red wine vinegar treatment for genital warts. Shortly after posting, all the warts were completely gone by the end of 2 weeks. I have also gone to my gyn for a follow up and i was told that my pap smear was normal and that I did not have HPV anymore. I was advised to make sure I get an exam every 6 month. I also shared with my gyn how I used natural remedies to get the warts off and she was impressed!
I've had a genital wart for months. I had used Apple Cider Vinegar (daily on a piece of cotton taped to it as long as possible and renewing it at least once per day) to successfully treat a plantar wart on my middle toe, but that took more than a month to work, maybe two (I wasnt' counting).
Tried Apple Cider Vinegar for a week or two on the genital wart but saw no change. It was also difficult to do it practically, because of the location and the fact that the cotton would not stay stuck in place, and I felt weird going about with my genitals smelling like acv.
I read about H2O2 on warts so I went for it. I used 35% food grade H2O2, undiluted, on a cotton swab, three (or sometimes four) times a day, touching JUST the wart, VERY carefully, not touching the surrounding healthy skin. I waited 5-10 minutes for the H2O2 to dry on it before putting my panties on. It did sting quite a bit especially at first and it would turn the wart white for quite a while. (The Apple Cider Vinegar had also stung a lot on my plantar wart in the beginning.) The stinging went down as the treatment progressed. I had the feeling, with both wart treatments, that the sting had to do with the treatment working, but that could just be my idea.
The wart went away in four days! It gradually turned rough, like a scab and then fell off. It left a very small paler looking, bump, like a little gentle round scar which I kept on treating for a couple of days. It stung way less when the wart was gone.
This happened a few days ago so I have no long term results to report for now. But I'm ecstatic to have the wart gone.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL when handling 35% H2O2! It is quite caustic, and if it falls into the eyes it can cause blindness. I knew about that when I did the treatment, I read several other people's reports on warts using full strength 35% H2O2 how they were successful and I decided to try. It will turn your finger skin white if it touches it and that goes away after a couple of hours. Wash off with a lot of water.
If it seems too hardcore for some people I've read that lower concentrations of it can also be successful.
I'm also taking it internally and it's going fine, I'm now at 7 drops per day in a half glass of distilled water. I've got no big news there cause I'm basically healthy, but I've had a bit of diarrhea, which I've read can be a sign of detoxing.
Oh, and I don't care if pharmacy-bought H2O2 is cheaper, I'd never put that stabilized stuff in me. In the long run food grade is REALLY not that expensive! A quart bottle at 20$ will last you forever, and if you dilute it to 3% then it's even more!
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 found out I had genital warts about seven months ago and nothing worked. I tried cryotherapy five times, aldera, tea tree oil, garlic, ACV, and witch hazel. I decided to try hydrogen peroxide (8% food grade) and noticed a difference the next day after applying it at night with a cotton ball. I've been using it twice a day for a little over a week now and the warts are almost gone. Cheap, fast results, and no side effects that all of the other methods had. I know you can't cure genital warts but I definitely feel so much better knowing that if I do have another outbreak, I can use hydrogen peroxide as a quick remedy.
Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree Oil
Since my situation is a little more severe than most postings on here, I wanted to give details on my struggle: what worked and what didn't. First, I have a strain of HPV that is both high risk for cancer AND shows warts -great! I am also a very healthy individual, who eats well and exercises regularly. Once I realized I had HPV, I went to the Dr.and she prescribed Aldara, which worked slowly on two small bumps. After 3 weeks, they were mostly resolved. However, a third bump appeared on my vaginal opening and started growing quite rapidly. I liberally applied Aldara (daily too) but could not tell if it was working.
In frustration, I researched home remedies (which honestly I was not a fan of until now) and tried ACV on it to see what it would do. To my horror, white bumps showed up all over the vulva and near the vaginal opening. So I realized that while Aldara may work, there was no way to know where else the virus may be presenting. So, I researched ACV and started with the regimen that others mentioned on this website (overnight was impossible due to pain, but I left it on as long as I could bear, or applied it a few times throughout the day). I smelled like a salad bar and spent so much time crouched over a mirror.
Initially, I thought I was saved: bumps turned black in the center within a few days and I could pick them off in the shower. However, once I laid off ACV for a day or two, new ones appeared and more vigorous than before. So, I started again with ACV, but this time it did not seem to work as well. It took about 3 weeks to get some gone, others seem to just stay white, and a few new ones appeared too. A constant rotation of bumps in different stages- it was so frustrating, it hurt so bad, and was getting to be a real mess down there. I also believe the ACV on the cotton balls was spreading the infection to outlying areas. So I tried different techniques: using Q-tips on each one (hard bc so many), applying coconut oil to unaffected areas (may have helped to some degree), using hydrogen peroxide, taking lots of baths and keeping it dry. It just wouldn't stop and I could never get all the bumps gone. So, I tried alternating ACV with Aldara each night, thinking maybe I needed to fight this on a few different fronts. But that combo was too irritating and then, when I switched back to only ACV, my vulva looked SO bad (giant white all over almost every inch of my lower vulva and opening). It looked like one of those horrific pictures on the internet. At this point, I was too embarrassed to go to the Dr.
Researching, I found a number of scientific articles about green tea extract's efficacy. So I mixed green tea extract capsules with about 1 oz. of grapefruit seed extract and applied this to the area (I also consumed green tea extract mixed in juice (with vitamin C)). The extract felt good down there and seemed to dry out the area. It also kind of stuck to the cauliflower center of each wart and looked like it might be helping. But out of nowhere, a new outbreak developed on my anus! Due to all the warnings on the labels to not use salicylic acid on genitals, I had chosen not to do so, but at this point, I just didn't know what else to do. And I found one reference on the internet where a girl whose situation sounded similar to mine had luck.
Following her advice, I bought a blemish stick by a popular health food brand which contained salicylic acid and tea tree oil. It WORKED! Here's what happened: I put it on liberally before bed - it stung really bad but only briefly. I woke up the next morning and MY WHOLE VULVA area was HARD and BUMPY (not white) - like an alligator's back. I was VERY upset, thinking I had just ruined my vagina for life. I spent the day in shock. But the next morning I realized that actually it might be a good thing. So I took a bath (water/soaking helps it work), and applied it again. Almost immediately the warts turned brown and partly black! By that very afternoon, I could rub off 50% of them. That is where I am at today. It feels like it is working completely, unlike ACV. I am no expert, but based on all the readings I have done, I'm thinking different techniques work for different strains... Just a thought. Anyway, I will write back again if there are any new updates. I hope this helps someone who has a similar situation. Thanks to everyone who shared their stories.
My daughter of 22 years old was diagnosed with HPV strains 16 and 31 (after DNA analysis - HPV). It has no visible lesions of the cervix but Pap test occurred changes in the cells (ASCUS and AGUS). The doctor prescribed a very good treatment with Cervugid Ovules. We repeated Pap in February, after treatment and all analyzes were good. I hope other patients to get better after this treatment.
