There is one technique that I discovered many many years ago as my mom and sisters were using it for their cold sores and I had warts on my hands and feet - so I started using it.... The supplement L-lysine and it got rid of the warts. Years later I contacted genital warts and had some mutilating surgery which was extremely painful and about the time the surgery was healing more popped up. I was devastated and remembered the lysine. I began taking it again and they went away. I have to take the lysine almost daily or the warts will begin to return. I have been very acidic most of my life (about 5. 5 ph) and have increase the ph in my body, take coconut oil daily, and have almost decreased refined sugar intake to almost nothing, reduced gluten, reduced GMO's, and many other things but I still have to take the lysine. That is a cheap daily supplement to take and I swear that it has also kept me from getting the flu virus over the last 20 years that I have been taking the lysine - I have only gotten a touch of the flu when I have failed to continue taking the lysine. I thank you Earth Clinic sooooooo much for the site and the varied information as each of us is different and what works for one may not work for the next person. This is my favorite #1 go to site for information and I refer it to everyone I can. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU......

If it's simply itchy, it's very hard to say if it's GW or not. ACV will indeed burn whether or not you have warts (the acid will burn the top layer of skin off with frequent exposure to the vinegar), so I think you're safe. HPV can be very difficult to detect with standard STD tests, but one way to find out if you do have GWs is to apply the ACV with a cotton ball (with or without an adhesive to keep it in place) and leave it on for about 30 minutes to an hour. When you remove the cotton ball, check any skin that was in contact with the ACV for any whiteness. A white tint to your skin can be indicative of unseen, underdeveloped GWs. Even if you do see white, just continue with an ACV treatment method (basically the same process described above) for a few days, or until you no longer see white spots. ACV genuinely works with this, you just need to be diligent with your ACV application (change out the cotton ball every hour-hour and a half consecutively), and be sure to clean the affected area after each application, preferably with a shower followed by a healthy dose of hydrogen peroxide to the affected area before reapplication of ACV. You can also take vitamins and drink some of the ACV before bed each night, although I honestly didn't do these things and still had very positive results, it definitely wouldn't hurt. Hope this helps :)

How to Tell a Partner
Posted by Advise Seeker (Olathe, Kansas) on 02/03/2013

Hi everyone firstly I think its great that people are so open and willing to share their stories about this issue. I know that when I first found out a month ago I freaked out to the point of seriously considering suicide but then I somehow stumbled across this site and it made me feel so much better especially when I tried the remedies and they worked. One thing that no one has shared yet is how to tell a current/future partner about genital warts I am really embarrassed and am unsure how to bring up the conversation any advice? Thanks.

I had recurring back pain and shingles on my back and traced it to herpatic neuralgia from the herpes plus the occasional wart on my hands or legs. I was on acyclovir and various vitamins and DMSO lotion for years which worked to a point. Three years ago I switched to BHT staring with 250mgs morning and evening. I am completely in remission from everything and now only take 250mgs. in the morning plus a multivitamin.

First of all a massive thank you for all your help! I've had GW for almost a year and my GP would not refer me to a gynecologist and she only prescribed creams that never worked. Here is my story:

-I've had GW for 8 months now, GP thought it was nothing, then diagnosed me with chlamydia and then yeast infection. I did my research and knew it was GW, but my GP wanted me to go to a hospital 1hr away - I don't have a car. And that would mean loads of tests and no direct treatment, so I looked for remedies and found the ACV aspirin one.

-I tried it 3 days ago, soaked cotton balls in the mixture and applied them for 4hrs. I was in a lot of pain, didn't fall asleep until 4am (lesson: do the treatment during the day), but I pushed through it because I really wanted these darn things off.

-3 days later, the skin is grey and wrinkly, took a shower and most of it came off!! I am so incredibly relieved! I know dab some hydrogen peroxide on to keep the raw skin clean, it still hurts a bit because my warts were spread from my labia down to my anus.

-I really hope the warts don't come back but for now I am so happy! Thank you guys sooo much!!

I am writing to share an alternate remedy I used. I was Around 20 (1990s) years old when I first learned I had GW and was really scared. I however didn't wait and went and seen the doctor. Doctor confirmed and started to use boric acid (?) I had a few warts running up the shaft of my penis the pain for me then was immense. Nevertheless the warts came back. And started to spread. I was freaking out. As panic would dictate I was desperate to try anything. For whatever god guiding reasons I had a massive headache and found a bottle of ibuprophen and was just reading the uses, headache, inflammation etc... The key word that got me was inflammation... What the hell I thought to myself might as well double up. So I took high doses of ibuprophen. They were orange 400mg doses, so I took 4 pills for 1600mg with milk! I took 1600mgs everyday for 7 days. Could've been less as this was so very long ago. But after a week I started to notice they were going away and has disappeared. Years later I caught on the news that something in the coating of ibuprohen Helps with GW. I figured I got lucky... It's been 23 years since that time and never had a single case or outbreak and has never returned. I am now Married and with kids. Of course, I decided after that ordeal to change my promiscuous ways. Never slept with another woman until I thought she was the one... I have no clue why I'm even writing this after so many years, but woke up with this subject on my mind and wanted to share. Hopeful this can help someone before trying some painful surgical procedure or acidic method. I'm no doctor or herbal Methodist, only a person sharing his experiences.... Good luck

Why do people keep saying genital warts are caused by herpes? Different STD. It's like saying gonorrhea is caused by syphillis.

I'm 25 yrs old. Three months back, I discovered a little pimple to my penis (near the bottom of pink head). I just used to clean it with water and few drops of dettol. But few days back I examined and found dat there had been few more grown on penis. by tracing the foreskin back, I could see few lil warts scattered at the bottom of penis head and 2 or 3 warts on the foreskin inside.

i was bit depressed to see them and had no idea... Wats dese?.... I never had a pimple on face or a scar on body.... It was just a hell.... The whole day I used to think abt dese ugly warts.... I just googled about the infections of genital areas and came to know dat I have GENITAL WARTS..... got more information on dese .

was completely depressed as it is caused by hpv..... Virus. I just kept on searching about its details and treatment..... I gave my whole three days just sitting at home and googling it. gone through every allopathic, homeopathic and home remedies.

i detail here few. Firstly I read on few sites dat this virus is not cureable but the warts are, sometimes dese warts go away untreated but sometimes requires treatment. They may reoccur. In some cases they havn't reoccured, some says dat they reoccured after 2 or 3 years and sometimes few months. some have complained dat they had been suffering from past 10 to 15 years but not removed till now.

i read somewhere dat this virus do not enter blood streams. the warts can be removed and the body can bacome free of virus within few months or a year by developing immunity in the body.

some of fellows here have tried ACV, tea tree oil, etc. And have provided good results. But with few scars or burning of sensitive skin. Few have said dat they have removed without any scars. thers no scientific proofs for dese all.

I have seen dat people dont go to doctor and feel ashamed of it. i too felt so, but i thought, i must consult a doctor first and then decide what to do. why should be i ashamed, ... its my body and i have to take care of it..... having sex is not bad.. its a very essential part of life.... but what i s bad is ignoring the safety... take precautions........... unknowingly we can acquire few diseases but we cant sit and get depressed from dem... standup and treat them

today i went to homeopathy doctor... he is 68 yrs old and i trust him. he has cured my asthma.... it took me around few (4 to 6)years to get rid of this alleregy.. today m absolutely fine and had no ashthma attack(it had been 7 to 8 years now). i just went to him and told him about genital warts. he used to see few cases daily regading genital warts. i queried him much. he told dat dese are cureable and our body can become completely rid of this virus. thers only cure in homeopathy. he put two drops of some medicine on my tongue and gave me few more medicines which are to be taken after 3 days regularly for next 15 days. a thuja lotion has been provided which to be applied twice a day. i asked him will dese warts go or when will i get rid of this virus completely. he replied dat within 15 days u will have no warts or continue for next more 15 days days. he said dese warts will be completely removed and the virus too will be kicked out of my body. he was 100% sure. at last he told dat till now all the cases of genital warts have been completely cured and no reoccurance.

while returning i was very happy, confident and i know dat i will kick out this virus from my body very soon.

so guys thers nothing to worry about. dont be shy. consult ur doctor. do not remove them with hands (u may increase the infection). warts can be cured and virus can be kicked out of our body completely.

will update my experiences very soon.

Yes Denise, I tried Papillex for HPV and it worked. I had three consecutive abnormal pap's followed by a colposcopy and I was scared. The doc booked me in for a LEEP procedure to get rid of the cervical dysplasia (CIN) lesions from HPV. I booked the appointment for 4 months later so I could try to get rid of it naturally for a short and intensive time frame. I used 1) papillex 2 caps twice a day 2) eliminated refined foods from my diet and 3) ate 8 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. In 4 months when I went back for leep the HPV was gone. The doc was shocked and I've never been happier.

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.

Am from Nigeria and just as u guys have said, doctors don't help a lot. I didn't even know how or when I got infected with GW but I went thru a lot of trouble just getting a diagnosis. Had to open myself for up to 5 doctors b4 they told me anything. Never even heard of genital warts before and it seems the doctors were surprised I actually came to the hospital. I was given ink-like podophylin and I've been using it 4 more than 10 months now. It's been a very, very painful process and most of the warts have gone but a big one in my anal area is still there and I got tired so I stopped treatment for some time. Am happy I've seen this site and I'll go and try this Apple Cider Vinegar. Thnx guys so much. If it can go in 1 week why have I been suffering these 10 months?

After reading all these posts I felt I had to share my story and contribute to the support this forum has been for people like me in this situation. About a month ago I noticed a strange bit of skin the size of a pencil eraser tip on top of my anal opening. At first I thought it was just a skin tag. However it continued to bother me as it wasn't something that I'd ever noticed before. So I decided to go to the doctor to get some piece of mind about this. He confirmed what hadn't even crossed my mind; anal warts. The most disgusting sounding thing I could have imagined. I was shocked. Being a sexually active male, I guess it shouldn't have been such a shock, but it's definitely been a wake up call! He was very reassuring, and calmed my fears that this is something many people get and it can be treated and handled. He used cryotherapy, basically freezing as much of the wart as he could and said to be back in two weeks.

Well now this thing on my anus has consumed my mind, and getting rid of it and making sure it never comes back has become almost an obsession. I found this forum and that very night I tried using the ACV method that so many people have written about.

The first night I dipped a piece of cotton in the ACV then taped it to the wart and the surrounding area. It didn't sting or hurt, went to bed with it. The next morning I found the top layer of the ward had gone white and even bits of it had turned gray. How much was for the ACV and how much from the freezing, I can't be sure. But I tried it again for the next two nights. By the third night it was stinging like hell. I think some of the ACV had irritated the skin around the wart which was red. Makes it difficult to move around when the irritated skin rubs up against anything. However the wart itself which seemed like it was almost a little coil shape had begun to change size. The black bits came off in the shower and I can see it's getting smaller. After every ACV application I can see the skin turns white, and then gray. I've done this for 4 nights now, I'd say of that big wart has decreased about 40-50%. Some of the skin around it also turned slightly white but I'm not sure if those are warts that were just flat/unseen or skin that's been irritated.

The skin around it is raw so I've been using neosporin on it which helped sooth the skin. I'm going to try this again tonight, maybe use a smaller piece directly on the wart and try to avoid any other part of the skin.

I have to say this has been a very psychologically and physically humiliating experience. I can only hope that there's no recurrence and that I can get rid of this for good. I know it's down to ones immune system to fight off the HPV virus, that's why I've also decided to completely change my diet and my bodies internal environment so I can make it impossible for this to ever thrive again! I've read up on the bodies ph balance and have a feeling I have a very acidic internal environment which is perfect for viruses and other bacteria to thrive in. Drinking things like coffee, eating foods high in starch and sugar all contribute to this. So I've been eating more alkaline producing food, started taking ACV as a shot twice a day, and packing up on the vitamins. I'm hoping within a week or two this will become a distant memory! I'll keep everyone posted about the progress. Thanks again for the support and for everyone who shared their story!

ok this is what happened 2010. I was intimate with my current fiancee, the thing is I havent had sex in 5 years or more and I am the type of person who checks out my entire body almost every morning (its just a thing.. I like to be up close with my stuff) so I am sure I got it from him. He used to sleep with a lot of girls. When we were together also it seemed to me he didn't know how to use a condom (he accidentally tore it), I assumed he had nothing. I assumed I was the big slut in our relationship too... anyway no good will come out of blaming who infected who.

I didn't bother with bumps on my vag lips which I saw around a month after contact with him, after 5 mos there came bumps near my butt hole area, I assumed it was due to hemorrhoids and using very strong antimicrobial sulfur soap. I only have the hemorrhoids cause I wasnt eating properly (dieting too much). So my immune system crashed and I became susceptible, even more to the virus. I saw the warts around november 2011 after looking at my butt (which I usually do, I like to keep it smooth). I was watching philadelphia the movie, and I became very alarmed and almost suicidal, I went to see my gynecologist who then told me that it was an STD and genital warts. She gave me a dirty look and prescribed ALDARA cream to me, which I garnered even dirtier looks for attempting to purchase. Anyway DO NOT TAKE THIS CREAM IF YOUR WARTS ARE OPEN SORES/WOUNDS/CUTS it will mess you up you will wish you were dead. I recommend you guys reading the articles on google regarding this cream, its very dangerous for some people it rendered them almost immobile/paralyzed.

Anyway I took aldara for 2-3 weeks and I really did not see the warts slow down, it was depressing to anticipate putting the cream on my butt and vag lips. I am a type who who wants to be clean and smooth and this was very very traumatic for me. I cried almost every night and day and I tried to research online what I could do and the images of the warts also. These are my experiences using aldara cream

  • 1)I bought disposable underwear because I burned my old underwear
  • 2)I used the cream before sleeping, it made me sleepy
  • 3) I used a desk mirror sat on a rag on the floor with my legs open in front of a vanity mirror..
  • 4)wiped the cream properly in places
  • 5) wear disposable underwear
  • 6)put sanitary sheets on bed to not re-infect self
  • I started using the apple cider, heres what I did
  • 1)bought hane's apple cider ORGANIC vinegar
  • 2)tons of cotton balls
  • 3)disposable underwear
  • 4)cannot stand to sleep with this stench, I cover a bunch of cotton balls and stuff them on my vag lips, inside (not inside the vaginal canal) and on the butt area
  • 5)use oral painkillers tablets (paracetamol or ibuprofen) it still hurt a lot to a point I was shaking
  • 6)i did this almost everyday for almost 2 mos, Jan 15 to Mar 10
  • 7) now it is almost gone but I scarred my butt pretty bad, I put some cream oil on it
  • 8) u can just use qtips, use those surgical tapes (the ones where ur pores can breathe) , pour vinegar on the qtip and set the qtip on the wart and tape it overnight
  • 9)i highly recommend disposable undies cause the apple cider smell probably wont go away or it will stain ur underwear
  • 10)instead of using tissue paper, use gauze, it wont hurt that much if u use gauze, cause tissue chafes a lot
  • 11)beware of scarring, so I highly recommend the qtip thing.. the scar is light colored than ur normal skin tone
  • 12) I also used hydrogen peroxide 10% and swabbed the areas after showering every day and my butt
  • 14)if concerned about moisture, leave cotton balls on between ur butt or vag area so it wont be moist, I promise u the warts will spread more when there is moisture
  • 15)i took 1000 mgs of vitamin c almost every day (or every other day), vitamin e, coenzyme q10, garlic, I ATE properly , I drank lemonade everyday to boost my immune system

All this said and done and spent, I am exhausted and sometimes I worry that I might not want to have sex ever anymore :( The stigma also of knowing u have it, u dont want to share it with a future sex partner or lover/husband/wife/gf

Good luck and have faith, if u end up scarring and having wounds on ur genital warts due to using the apple cider, u can buy betadine and wash it with that it will heal faster then u can do it again.

Just an update. It has been 12 hours before I started this treatment.

I left AVC soaked cotton pads on my vagina and anus for around 3 hours, took them off and then put another one on my vagina for about 4 hours. The warts have come out and it is a LOT worse than I originally thought. I thought I had 1 wart and a smaller one next to it, and a couple between my anus and vagina, I thought they were single warts but they are actually clusters. It does sting slightly after and durying the 3rd treatment, but it is 150% bareable. I am going to leave it for now and continue in the morning after inspecting the area.

I originally was going to just to 30 min stints with the AVC, but as soon as I saw how white everything went, it's kind of addictive. I am now stuck between two states of mind. One that if I don't apply it overnight, they will just go back to normal and I will have made no progress, or that if I do apply over night it will sting like hell. I will leave it alone for now and see how I am when I get up.

I cannot believe this has happened to me =(

I find this site very informative. I have tried many different remedies and it is taking a very long time. In between the ACV treatments I use aloe vera juice also as a softener and in between treatments I use castor oil. Prior to all this information, I found when I was a young kid my doctor told me I had some sort of blood disease (?) All my life I carried that thought around, then as a teen ager I had warts the whole length of my left hand, I used my mothers corn remover and it worked great. At that time, there was no other sign of warts anywhere. My older brother had a few warts on his face burned off. When I got older and married, I then noticed the small bumps on my anus and vagina. It has taken me forever to treat this issue. As my Dr. told me years ago;what ever is outside is also inside. I began to think this one incident has been in my family for generations, because when twins were born one died from an unknown virus (?) Then my older sister had twins, as the twins got older, one died from an unknown disease.Do I get the impression this was a family thing? I think so, but needless to say it's sad I as well as my other siblings didn't know this. Maybe no one knew for sure.I do know antibiotics are only a temp. cover up, not a cure.

The very best part of Earth Clinic is we all keep each other well informed. I need to thank every one for being brave enough to share all this personal info. God Bless.

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.

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.

well i contacted these warts while wearing protection. i have done research upon research on these. some people i know have got these things bad. i am lucky i only got 4 and thats it. i have had them for a while. no reoccurances mine have not spread. some people get them and they spread everywhere. despite what people may think these can go away for ever. i read an article on line that changed my whole way of these warts. what i have done so for i dont have the hpv virus in my system anymore but i still have 3 warts left. i went to the doctor and said i have hpv and wanna get rid of them. i showed the doc and he said your one of the few that dont have a lot of these. the doc drew blood and ran some tests. he told me the hpv is not in your system anymore. he was stunned. he asked me what i did. so i told him. he never heard of the stuff that i was taking and i took it for a while. people have to understand that your not gonna get rid of these warts by taking some stupid cream etc.. the first thing you have to do is boost your immune system. i took vitamin c lots of it. then i was taking a multi-vitamin for a while. i cant give product names becuase they will get deleted. they didnt fall off or turn colors. in fact i was mad because i wasnt seeing any results. so i was furious i cut one off with a knife, yup i said thats how mad i was. hurt like hell. well its been over a year and it has not come back. the rest i got froze off. one of the keys to getting rid of these warts is your immune system you have to start taking vit.c and not store bought but organic vit.c. its more expensive but it works. if you wanna send me an e-mail i will be happy to tell the product names of the stuff i was taking and maybe it might work for you.

I was horrified to discover that I had genital warts which I contracted from my unfaithful husband. I should say my now former husband. I used the ACV, aspirin, castor oil treatment and was happy with the results, however the burning was excruciating and the recovery time was just as painful. I had results but it didnt get them all and I just keep having them returning. The itching is unbearable at times.

Upon researching I found a post elsewhere that said a highly oxygenated substance will kill the warts. The person stated that they used a product like oxyclean or a powdered oxygen type cleaner ( I will add that discription in case the product is blocked out) add water to make a paste and aply it. I tried it only I added the castor oil instead of water so it would apply better and stay on better. I tried a small test area and left it on for a couple of hours. I was elated to find that the very small wart had turned black and after one more application it fell off leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Last night I tried it on a larger area. I have to admit the burning was intense but I had used to Apple Cider Vinegar mixture so I had open areas. I meditated through the burning for 3 hours in the night and then rinsed off. I was amazed. I am in very little discomfort and it had a definate effect on the warts. I didnt know I had so many some were gone leaving just a small open area some were rasied and will need another treatment. I also learned that a hemrhoidal ointment will soothe the itching so you can rest. I just wanted to share this alternative with everyone. I hope it helps. Namaste

Genital Wart Advice

I feel obligated to write this because, thank God, I've been cured and there hasn't been any recurrence. DO NOT FREAK OUT LIKE I DID AND DO NOT BUY WARTROL OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU SEE ADVERTISED. MY DOC PRESCRIBED THIS EXPENSIVE CREAM I APPLIED FOR THREE MONTHS WITH NO RESULTS. THEY DON'T WORK AND YOU'RE LEFT MORE FRUSTRATED. Here's what worked for me and it only cost $5. Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar available at Wholefoods.


1. Btw do NOT use a cotton swab or cue tip as you WILL miss one or two behind and in a week they will return.

2. Take a wash towel and soak it in ACV. Squeeze the towel so it's not too drippy and cover your entire genital area, wrapping the penis entirely ( men) including the upper pube area for one hour.

3. Repeat this for 3-4 nights. Do NOT leave for more than one hour because it will scar your skin. Burning sensation is normal.

After the second application you should see the warts, including the ones you didn't know about turn dark. That's when you'll know how many more applications are needed, but no more than 2 one or half hour applications. You should be wart free in one week after the scabs fall off. I've been wart free for one year now.

Further advice: try and take a shot of ACV every other day. It's good for you and it builds your immune system. I personally like the taste, but you can also pour it on salad. Stay healthy, eat well, work out. All this will build your immune system.

Cheers and you're free from GW.

Salt Crystal Deodorant

5 out of 5 stars


I've been learning on this site for almost two years now but have never been able to contribute anything until now. I am so elated to tell people that they can treat their warts at home, very inexpensively, fairly quickly, and almost painlessly.

The salt crystal that people use as a natural deodarant cured my hpv. I wet it and rubbed it on my warts, the same way I do when I use as a deodorant, just to be sure I would rub a little longer for warts. The warts were located outside of my vagina, and inside of my vagina but even if inside if they were visible and I could reach them with the salt i rubbed them with the salt. It did cause minor irritation and burning but it was nothing compared to the ACV and Oregano oil, and much faster than the castor oil treatment.

If the warts are in an area that's stays moist try and keep the area as dry as possible to avoid diluting the salt. If the warts seem to be stuborn or extremely large try pricking it with a toothpick, or rubbing it to irritate the skin.

I hope that this remedy works as well for others as it has for me.

Colloidal silver kills viruses. Use a high ppm. Take orally and apply topically. The fact that it is on the face makes it likely the virus is systemic. You may have to take the silver for six months to completely get rid of it. I'd take two tablespoons daily on empty stomach. Apply topically with a cloth, letting it act like a poultice. Squirt inside with a syringe.

I was diagnosed with HPV in January much to my dismay. I had an abnormal pap, and am scheduled to have my 6 month follow-up pap in less than a week. After a recent surgery, I believe my immune system was depleted and was horrified to find an outbreak of genital warts INSIDE my vagina only. It started when I noticed that sex was unusually painful, and upon more examination, I could feel clusters of them up in my nethers. I went to a free health clinic and they said they could not help me. I read up online as much as I could about the little buggers, and was so discouraged when many informative websites said that they would go away eventually in ONE to TWO years. Thank God for EarthClinic. Thank God for all the other people affected by this unfortunate condition... and their encouraging words and helpful tips. I decided to treat myself with as much ammo as I could get my hands on. My treatments started a little over a week ago and included the following:

1) Apple cider vinegar: I tried the paste that everyone raves about, but having aspirin in my vagaygay was not working for me. So I did a simple douche- about 1 part apple cider vinegar (ORGANIC AND UNFILTERED) to 3 parts water for as long as I could bear it, approximately 30 minutes to an hour every day. Douching supplies can be bought at any drugstore. After the douche, I applied a little bit of castor oil to the warts. I had some warts just on the inside of my vagina, and would stick a ACV-soaked cotton ball there for as long as I could stand. These burned the worst, so I applied a combo of vitamin E and tea tree oil after that treatment.

I also drink 2 tsp of ACV in filtered water per day. Sometimes twice. Very tolerable.

2) Garlic: I bought odorless supplements 1000mg at the drug store and take 6 a day. 2 in the morning, 2 afternoon, 2 before bed.

3) Folic acid: 400 mcg per day (1 tab)

4) Acidophilus: 500 million live cells/day (1 tab). Strengthens immune system

5) Co Q-10: 200 mg per day (1 tab). Powerful antioxidant

6) Diet rich in beta-carotene: Lots of green leafy veggies, carrots

7) Vitamin E oil: Not only for relief after my ACV treaments, but I added 5 drops of it to my food daily (100 IU). It's actually quite tasty.

8) Job's tears: I bought some from a local acupuncturist. A bag of them cost me $6. With these, I boil 1/2 cup of the Job's tears in a pot of boiling water for 45 mins-hour, or until the barley is soft. I let the concoction cool, then drink it. Every day. Some people say to add sugar for taste, but I'm trying to cut back on that. For me, it's do-able as is.

9) Eat healthy, exercise, limit smoking/drinking. NO sex (yes, all this was difficult, but worth it)

Like I said before, I started these treatments a little over a week ago. Upon my last examination, I can HARLY FEEL ANY IN THERE! LOL. I can't believe my fingertips! It's amazing! The ones just inside my vagina are still palpable, but they've definitely shrunk a lot. I can't attribute any ONE treatment to my success, so I will continue taking all my supplements and douching with the ACV. Again, my follow up pap is in just a few days, and I can't wait to share all this with my OB-GYN. When it comes to the point that I can't feel any at all, I will continue with drinking ACV and taking my supps every day. I plan on doing my Job's tears maybe once a week instead of every day. As far as the douche, hopefully it will be unnecessary to do it as often, and especially since i'm very vulnerable to yeast and BV. So I may cut this back to once a month, if at all.

I hope this information helps people, as others have helped me. I will update when I'm sure they're gone. Hopefully this will be soon. Please reply if you have ANY questions/comments. Good luck to you all! Stay positive and BE PERSISTENT!

I found a previous post about a cure for HPV on one of the many web sites. I am not sure which one.

Everyone, there is a cure for HPV and its insidious consequences. Professor Craig Meyers who is a the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Penn State College of Medicine has done research as early as 2005 and found that by using a friendly virus called AAV2, HPV IS DEAD IN THE BODY WITHIN SIX DAYS. This same friendly virus also destroys breast cancer in women!!

I asked him, why then, doesn't anyone know about this and why are there no clinical trials? He responded that he needs money to do this, and no one is providing it. He has appealed many health organizations. CNN also wrote a story about this.


I don't know about you, but I don't want to wait that long.

I am writing with the hope that we can all unite and write many letters to many congressmen, newspapers, private philanthropists, so that we can get this terrible and egregious HPV eradicated from our bodies.

Who is with me in writing letters? Who would like to help me organize awareness?

We all have a similar story. We were not given this sickness by choice. In my situation, the one time I blindly trusted a man, I was given this gift.

Like all of you, I don't want to wait for my immune system to take care of it. If there is something that kills it in six days, then I want to pursue such a treatment plan.

Please post a response if you can help me organize some awareness.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Elderberry
Posted by Nick (Atlanta, GA) on 05/30/2009

I am currently on day 4 of ACV treatment and elderberry extract...

A good healthy diet with elderberry extract will help A LOT! Take about 2100 MG throughout the day (2 pills, 3 times a day) everyday for a month. I know this may seem like a pain to deal with, but it will help. You will notice the warts shrink in size and eventually disappear. Elderberry heals from within so instead of burning the surface of the wart (and your skin), the elderberry will cause an immune response to the area infected.

You can purchase elderberry from your local herbal supplement store. Give it a shot!

Just remember to stay strong. HPV is the most common STD out there. 75-80% of sexually active adults get HPV throughout their life. Not everyone shows signs or symptoms, but just remember that you're not alone.

Regarding buying MMS instead of making it: I have Jim Humble's book, part 2, where he explains how to make it. Unfortunately, you can't make it from stuff you can buy at the store. You need to purchase sodium chlorite (not chloride) flakes at a chemical supply house, where according to Jim you could get 100 g for $30 (as of a few years ago), as well as dark plastic bottles with accurate dropper tops, distilled water, accurate gram scale, and so on. Then you have to be very careful because this can be a dangerous substance, flammable when dry. It seemed a lot easier to pay $10 on e-bay to try a bottle, which lasts for a very long time!

Euphorbia Peplus

Recently I developed three peri-anal warts and was horified. I decided to try something out of my garden, which I use for pre-cancerous lesions on my forehead. I am talking about the white sap of euphorbia peplus, or petty spurge, a very common weed.

One night I used only one small drop of the sap and rubbed it on the tops of the warts before going to bed. Within an hour or so the pain became pretty intense, so much so that I took a strong painkiller. The next morning I had a look and was very surprised to see that not only was ALL the skin coming off my peri-anal area, but the warts had TOTALLY DISAPPEARED.

It was raw. I was unable to use toilet paper and had to squat over a hand-held shower instead. I did this for about a week,also applying some antibiotic ointment and some steroid cream I had in the cupboard.

Eventually I had a brand new anal area. I was very pleased with this until some more warts began to appear, probably about eight.

At this point I was a bit wary of going through the pain again with the prospect of maybe twenty more popping up after initially disappearing, so I tried the ACV. I have been using it for about a week, giving it a break if the skin becomes too sore.

At this point parts of the warts have begun disappearing. They turned white, but did not turn black. Never-the-less it is still working and I am continuing with the treatment, though maybe now I will use some vaseline on the healthy skin to protect it and reduce the soreness.
I know they will keep reducing. I just hope they don't re-appear in greater numbers again.


Colloidal Silver
Posted by Silver Surfer (Tuscaloosa, Al) on 09/26/2012

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."

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.

Banana Peel

Green banana peel cured my 2 tiny genital warts in 24 hours. Not wanting to burn my perineum with ACV, I thought I would try green banana peel. I scraped of the green skin of a lady finger banana and scored the inside to release that sticky unripe sap. I swear within 4 hours they were softening and hard to detect. They were two small pimple like bumps and I wore banana peel overnight and in the morning, I could only feel one tiny lump. A day later I could feel nothing. No burning, no smell, no pain from this remedy apart from the fact that banana peel stains horribly! I am backing up with Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) now to keep them away.

I have been reading this forum on the different ways everyone has tried to cure their GW's. I was diagnosed with GW's a few days ago. I've noticed many here have said about the raw garlic burning them. The best way to use the raw garlic when you apply directly to the skin is to soak the clove (score it 4-5 times) in olive oil for an hour or so. I've actually inserted a whole clove up inside my vagina (to treat yeast infections) (use a clean needle and thread, and make like a pull cord, kind of like what's on a tampon) and that way you can leave it in all night. I am for sure going to use a number of the ideas given here, along with the garlic to try and clear my GS's up.

ok this worked for me and i had clusters of them and they itched really bad all the time. i used garlic, slices of it. and put it on the warts. its burns for about 10 min. but i woud leave it there all night. with tape. use any tape it doesnt matter. aways do it over and over intill it looks like you have herpes! it gets really red and looks like its scabing up. i dont know what happens but some of them turn black and just fall off. and some just disappear with the scab with it falls of. this works. it seems like they get bigger at first. but just keep using it. mine got bigger the first 3 days, but i had to get rid of this things so i just kept on. it really works at least i know it works for the clusters. i only used it a week or a little more.
