Hi all, as a teenager I had a bad case of genital wart. My vagina was practically closed. In Back to Eden he recommended buckthorn bark for warts. I figured it would work for genital warts too. I made a tea and poured it over and into my vagina. The warts turned white and spongy and fell off in 2 days. They never came back and it was if nothing had ever happened. The doctor couldn't understand what happened. She wanted to burn them off :(. She didnt believe that I poured tea on myself.

Hi just wondering how you made the tea? How much buckthorn bark solution did you use and do you just mix it with water? Did you apply the tea while it was still warm or did you let it cool first?

How often and for how long did you apply the tea? Really interested in this method so thanks in advance for your reply!

Hi there. In order to find a treatment to get rid of my genital warts I ended up here. In Holland we don't have a site like this and I found lots of information and tried some of the treatments I've found here. But when I was looking on other sites I've found a few items that told about Carrageenan as an inhibitor of the HPV, HIV and Herpes virus. I found some carrageen powder on a dutch website and decided to try it. Within 2 days after making a paste from some hot water and a teaspoon of the powder and putting it on my genitals the warts were gone. I've told this to a couple of people on a dutch forum and they all tried the carrageenan/water paste. The results are good with them too. The warts (small ones are gone in 2 days...bigger ones in 5 days) just disappear. Carrageenan is used in a lubricant (bioglide) to keep the virus from spreading but it can be used as a treatment too. Maybe one of you would like to try this too? It's cheap, doesn't burn your private parts and as far as I 've found out it works. Good luck. I hope my english is good enough for you to understand. (My english is better than your dutch probably. ;) )

Hey all, genital warts are a symptom of HPV. You should definitly get checked out by your doctor. Now I had them as well, and I drank organic carrot juice. I dont remeber the name of it but it has 940% vitamin A. Which is extremely good for your skin. I drank about a half cup a day and in a couple of weeks, they were gone. Havent come back since. Make sure it's organic carrot juice, and 940% vitamin A. It worked for me. Good luck!

I have genital warts on my pubic area (none on my genitals) and have used organic castor oil to get rid of them. Applied 2 or 3 times a day using a cotton ball. Usually within 2 weeks they turn black and flake off. It's a bit messy, but a thin coating is contained by underwear.

Greetings to all on Earth Clinic. I have read this site for years and found a lot of home remedies to help me, and never gave anything in return. I had a bad case of genital wart breakout and thought my world had come to an end. I went to the doctor and he told me there was medicine to take but no cure. My wife of 23 years accused me of the unthinkable, and I told her she could have passed it to me since it does lie dormant and for some reason comes to life. Doc said we could have had it as teens. I did a lot of digging on the net and found the ultimate cure. It can be bought at the vitamin store for seven dollars. It is cold pressed/processed castor oil. It is not the regular castor oil grandma use to give you. This one is also known as the palm of christ. It does live up to the name. The cures from this are many. If you had large ones like me, one larger than a pencil eraser this is all that you need to do: Wash and dry the warts, if it has a cauliflower head on it lightly rough it up with a pin or needle and apply the castor oil 3 times a day. Morning, noon, and night. At night I would wake up and apply more. 3 days later the little ones vanished and 21 days later the big boy was gone. That was 8 years ago and to this day they have never returned. There is no irritation. redness, or swelling from this miracle cure. Doctor said no cure, I know there is. I have been there and found it. Be consistent about applying it, and watch your worries disappear. Terry

Terry, the Doc said no cure, you also said the virus lays dormant, I suppose you so shocked big boy and his little friends they ducked the onslaught of Palm of Christ, The virus is systemic, meaning it is in your blood, cells etc! I think you have carpet bombed Dresden and all life has gone underground to re coupe. I had vernal warts for 30 years, used ever conceivable thing on the market had them frozen, lasered. I have no more virus in my body and the cure was a by-product of curing another virus..HEP C.... BHT I found on the net from Oscar used it and bingo.

Castor oil for genital warts: For the last 3 years I have tired everything possible (including everything on this site) to get rid of these things and they would either come right back, or leave scars. I was about to just bite the bullet and get them laser removed until I came across CASTOR OIL. I didn't think it would work because it's actually used as a laxative, but I decided it couldn't hurt to try.

Some people just use plain castor oil, and say it works great, but I found a mix of things that seemed to speed up the process. Mix: 1 oz castor oil, 1 tbsp of tea tree oil, 80 drops of vitamin E oil (or break open 30 vitamin E gel tabs). You can also add a tbsp of thunga if you can find it. All of the others can be found at any pharmacy store, Cvs, Walgreens, etc.

Apply this mix 3 to 4 times a day; basically try to keep the oil on as much as you can throughout the day. Some people wrap up the area to keep the oil from rubbing off, but I didn't do that and it still worked. Just allow a few min. for the oil to soak in. The oil started working within a week for me, with no pain what so ever, and I am almost back to normal after 2 1/2 weeks. I had close to 50 sm. and large warts, so the process may go quicker for you.

Also be sure to stay healthy. Get a lot of sleep, drink a lot of water, work out, take a multivitamin, and other immune system building vitamins (Echinacea, Zinc, vitamin B and C). Good luck!

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.

Hi. I had one wart on my vagina so I started using the ACV and cotton ball to cure it. I slept with the cotton ball over night, and when I woke up, the wart was gone. But now, my vagina looks white and bumpy and I just found a different wart. I tried using the cotton ball with ACV but this time it hurt so badly that I only used it for 5 minutes. Is my vagina turning white and bumpy because of the ACV or are more warts coming out? The newer bumps look kinda like irritated skin but I'm not sure.

For genital warts, I used the coconut oil, no pain and they were gone or greatly reduced in a week. I took 2 tbs of coconut oil a day by mouth, it was 6 months later that at the first sign of reoccurance I used it topically.

About a month ago, while in the shower, I discovered a small bump near my anal perineum. I couldnt be sure what it was or IF there was EVEN a bump there, but it bothered me. I kept feelin on it, and debating on whether or not this was new, or I was just now noticing it, etc, I eventually blew it off as my imagination.

Two days later, I discovered 2 new bumps on my groin area. They looked like little seed warts, cuz I get em' on my hands, so Im very familiar with them, I FREAKED!!!

The one I discovered before, also seemed bigger. Haha!! OMG!! I really freaked out, I thought I was gonna die, I was so dissappointed with myself. I just met somebody too, ugh, the feelings of horror and disgust I went through were overwhelming, I had to make an EFFORT not to panic and keep calm, and sane. i searched the internet for cures.

I imediately, did the ACV aspirin paste for 3 days and I taped ACV cotton to my groin area for 3 days. The wart turned black and fell off on my groin, then as it was healing I dabbed tea tree oil on it(twice daily), to kill all remaining viral activity on the scab,then followed by a week and a half of applying straight castor oil twice a day(morning and night), to get it to heal, and also kill the virus. That healed quit nicely, but left a faint scar, kinda sux, but its ok.

However, the major wart on my butt did not go away with the 3 day, ACV/Aspirin treatment twice daily, for 2 hours each application.

After the paste, I just put a mixture of castor oil and tea tree oil (not too much in the mix, just enough to where you can smell the tea tree faintly)on my entire outside of my vagina and anal area, aswell, as my groin, twice a day(castor oil does not stain cloths. I did that for about a week, but then the tea tree oil, started really irritating me, and I think caused a vaginal infection. Cuz, aout a week and a half into this I developed bacterial vaginosis. I wasnt sure if it was related to what I was doing or the HPV virus, because, I have heard it does cause vaginal infections. Surprise!!! HAHA!!

I then develop another small wart near the clitoral area, OMG!! Some part of me, was still in denial, thinkin and HOPING I was just treating skin tags, etc. Apparantly not, I was horrified. It was at this point I decided to switch to coconut oil.

I did about 2 weeks of castor oil, but I really saw RESULTS with the coconut oil.

The one on my butt, and another smaller on the other side of my butt(new one) have all shrunk, and are alomost gone. I mean microscopic. The one near the clit is alot smaller too, but not completely gone.

Ive been using coconut oil, twice daily(morning and night)for 3 weeks, and its awesome!! Im gonna keep doing it for another 2 weeks, cuz I dont want those bad boys comin back. Im thinking I may do the coconut oil at night, (once) everyday, indefinantly. I dont want new ones, Im terrified of this spreading.

Ive been battling this for over a month. In the mornings I just rub a little on the effected area, so as not to stain thru underwear and cloths, after shower. At night I SLATHER IT ON , all over, pelvic bone, groin area, every inch of my female anatomy and inside, and sleep with loose boxers on. Coconut oil.

I also take it internally, one tbsp melted in a cup of tea, in the morning once a day, and garlic supplements. Three caps in the morning and three at night. Six a day. Straight garlic is good too.

Elderberry extract once a day, and multivitamins, aswell as folic acid, B complex, vitamin E. Grapefruit seed extract is good, and I have recently added a probiotic, (acidopholis) for the BV issue.

ACV works, but its hardcore, and you need to heal after. I just thought, coconut oil would be less invasive and more casual approach and it works.

Just so you will know; I used coconut oil on my bottom for this religiously. It became highly inflammed. I was shopping and all of a sudden I had to run to the restroom and use my wet wipes to wash off. I'm a big fan of coconut oil and I don't know if it's because of the sensitive area or what. So just be careful and keep this in mind.

After extensive research on the web when I discovered I had genital warts I decided to give coconut oil a chance. I couldn't bare the thought of going to a doctor and asking them to look at a growth on my butt, worse, there were some just inside my colon (which is typical with genital warts on the anus). After 6 weeks of 2xdaily enemas and massaging in a tablespoon of coconut oil over the warts... they are completely gone. A lot of information on the web says genital warts don't go away without serious treatment (burning off, laser, freezing, etc). I am a believer in coconut oil. It worked on me. It also made my skin glow and feel baby soft. I found myself caressing my skin, amazed at the pleasant silky feeling. Rubbing it in my hair made it super shiney and healthy. I want to fill my hot tub with coconut oil and marinate in it for days.

I was just interested in anyone's thoughts feelings or experiences with using colloidal silver or anything else for that matter to treat Hpv warts

I used colloidal on my warts for less than under a month. It did reduce the itch and seem to make them stop from getting bigger. It did not get rid of them and worse it did stain my skin. I have a black spot about the size of a pennie on my rear end. It's pretty black.

I also have some slight silverish looking skin on my pubic bone.

I am thankful that I've stopped using to prevent further staining of my skin.

I was using a nano hydrosol silver. A common brand found at stores too.

I would be wary of using this. I mean they say this only happens long term but I was using it under a month in spray form. Topically. I guess your genitals would have some mucous membranes that might make it penetrate your system.

Colloidal Silver - Warts/HPV

After 4 unsuccessful surgeries to eliminate anal warts Colloidal Silver did the trick in days. For approximately 2 weeks I applied CS topically to my anus area with cotton pads - morning, night and after bowel movements. Leave the wet pad in place between applications if possible. My warts were both internal and external so I inserted the pad 1 to 2 inches. I began feeling relief in 2 days. That was 7 years ago and even thought the virus does not leave your body I have no visible signs or discomfort from the HPV virus. CS is available commercially but is easy to make and costs only pennies. Studies have shown commercial CS to be very inconsistent in its strength which is measured in PPM (parts per million). Dennis

Colloidal Silver doesn't look promising:

"Colloidal silver can cause serious side effects. The most common is argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin, which is usually not treatable or reversible."

Problem w/ conventional, mainstream liberal information outlets is that facts and truth are terribly compromised by greed. Jon Barron has done several articles and pod cast on the major flawed (lies) studies of vitamins by "independent" scientist/labs that just happened to be subsidized by large pharmaceutical firms and corps. As you might guess, or if you watch liberal mainstream news, ALL vitamin and mineral supplements are not only not beneficial, BUT they are actually harmful.

I have used colloidal silver for twelve years and am not blue! I have a colloidal silver machine and I take it a few times a wk to prevent a cold or flu. The much older machines many yrs ago may have bigger molecules which may turn someone blue, but I seriously doubt the newer machines do that. I also know a man who makes the silver solution and drinks a cupful every day for the last ten yrs and he has not turned blue. The blue color is a lie to get us to take drugs instead of silver!

Seems like a really obvious home treatment for genital warts. Go the your local pharmacy and buy a Compound-W Freeze off wart removal kit. Its is way overpriced at around $27, but it is good for way more than the 12 treatments the label advertises, and a lot cheaper than a visit to the doctor. Use as directed, you will know it is working when you see the area around the wart turn white, it stings a little, but keep the freeze tip on until it loses its cool. The white area goes away quickly as the cold numbs your pain receptors. Put some Neosporin on afterwards and wait about a week. The area around will scab up and then peel off, leaving you without a wart. It's what the doctor would charge you hundreds of dollars for doing in the office, but you can do it yourself, at home, in private, and get the same results. Don't buy any overpriced "healing oils" that require three treatments a day for several months and don't do a thing (my first mistake). The freeze takes care of business, quickly!

Diagnosing Genital Warts  

Posted by Thankfulwife (Charlotte, Nc) on 01/30/2014

Could this be HPV Genital Warts? I have been married & faithful for 12 years & so has my husband. About 6 years ago I noticed one small brown flat growth in my pubic hair region. It stayed the same with no more growth or spreading for 2 years. Then about 4 years ago it seemed that there were more and more of these tiny, rough, brown, flat wart-looking spots spreading across my pubic hair area. They aren't anywhere else, only where the hair grows. My husband doesn't have any of these on his body. Could this be warts caused by a strain of HPV & is it contagious? If so, why hasn't he been contaminated? It's been 12 years since I was with anyone other than my husband who seems to be unaffected. Also, I've had 4 babies and many blood tests & pap smears with nothing turning up. So, will applying Apple Cider Vinegar repeatedly via taped on cotton pads eventually cause the warts to die and go away? And if the warts go away is the virus gone & no longer contagious? Thank you.

I bought a wine bottle size bottle of elderberry juice from Biotta at the grocer a few weeks ago. I had high hopes. I've had what I suspect is HPV for roughly six years. The female doc called it "a little irritation". With a look that said, "Don't let them talk you into a hysterectomy". I've never had elderberry before. It tasted like a combination of blackberries and tomatoes. Eww. Well, within two or three days of drinking half of it I found a lump on the inside of my lip and a black patch about a quarter inch circle on the opposite side inside my cheek. The black patch was gone the next day, I've been putting iodine on the bump but it hasn't seemed to change. I also developed an small itchy pimple on my arm and another on my hand. After I scratched the one on my arm and the next day it turned into a small wart. The other one I was careful not to scratch and put iodine on, and it looks like after a week or so it's shrinking. The center turned red, like a tiny vein. The one in my mouth had the same red vein until I put the iodine on it.

Obviously I can't say for sure it was the elderberry that caused it all, but it's looking that way. I dumped the other half of the bottle out. Just an FYI.
