Thanks so much for creating this forum. i was diagnosed with genital warts 3 years ago and have podophyllin, liquid nitrogen, and attempted to use Aldara but was too scared after i bought it and read side effects. i'm now going to try home remedies. i attempted to put garlic on the wart however i felt a crazy burning sensation. has anyone else experienced this? i could only manage to keep it on for 5 mins before i started sweating. i will continue with ACV, Hydrogen Peroxide, and everything else...i want this chapter of my life closed. thanks!
Just 3 weeks ago I noticed that around my vaginal opening was feeling a bit rough, and on further investigations I realized that I had genital warts (no need for a scientist to break the news). I immediately got online and started looking for home remedies because I knew that I just didn't have the cash to go to a doctor's office. The first "remedy" that I found was those at home Wart freeze kits. It sounded promising but very painful so I didn't bother. And plus, they took two long weeks to deliver to the Caribbean...I needed something NOW!! I then discovered tea tree oil. I ran out and bought it and tried it as I had read online(by dampening a cotton swab and applying overnight). After the first night they were almost gone! I got really excited and did not use for the next few night and then POW...they were all over! I came back with the tea tree oil with a vengence applying every night till I was almost raw. Just as they started to go away from around my vaginal entrance I one day took some forceps and inspected my vaginal canal. I had warts all the way inside and some were huge! I then discoverd garlic can be used for warts. I used to use garlic for my yeast infection and it worked like a pro. I just peeled and scored the outside of the garlic, wraped it in some gauze and tied the both ends with dental floss leaving one long so i could pull it out. I made it in a long sting and shoved it up the canal and just changed it every 24 hours (really stinky). I also kept using the tea tree oil on the outside at nights and also included the ingestion of powderd garling mixed in warm water every day and a herbal clense. In 2 weeks flat, all were gone, both internally and externally. I then applied 30,000 IU vitamin E cream in-between the tea tree oil applications , which is a miricle against the irritation. My life is back!!
After being let down by so called genital wart treatments online I searched up home remedies and found one that actually works. So i went out and bought it that night and tried it with myself and with my husband. Garlic liquid pills. We took about 6 a day. 3 in am and 3 in pm. After 3 days they got smaller and smaller. In about a week, if that, they were so tiny it was unnoticeable. I was so scared, didnt wanna have any sexual contact or look at my husband. I was so afraid my kids would contract it. But now im so happy I learned what wonders garlic does. Its a virus killer so it attacks the virus inside. Its also alot better then having to tape something on your vagina! How are you supposed to do that?! So just swallow some garlic pills until theyre gone, which is about 2-3 weeks the latest, then drop down to 2 or 3 to be safe they don't come back. I have not seen another wart or have felt one in about 2 months. It makes you feel good again and brings back your esteem. Pretty sure this aint a cure cause theyre are no cures for this virus,so just play it safe when you do have sex and always wash your hands after going to the restroom. This virus is very catchy so please be careful. Do not use same towels or wash cloths with others.
Garlic really works on genital warts too. I didn't know about banana peel or potato so i bandaged crushed organic garlic [the strongest garlic] every night before bed and if i stayed home during the day too, sure it's gonna smell down there but who cares, it works! I also eat a few raw garlic cloves every day until symptoms, and did a whole body detoxification for 30 day- herbcleansing capsules u can find in every health food store.. in a few days this garlic and cleansing pushed the wart out from the skin, it got really big and it seemed like it stopped growing now i just had to figure out how to dry it off, i was reading a lot about sulfur for warts that it dries any wart off and i remembered i have a sulfur acne cream from an acne complex kit the "acne spot treatment", 3% sulfur..and put this on a bandage all day, change it about three times or so a day until it dries off compleatly leaving a small hole where the wart was. then disinfect the hole with hydrogen peroxide until it heals. It took about 3 weeks and the wart was gone in 3 weeks.
ps:i was also applying an oxygen facial mask on it and the oxygen helped too push the wart out too and i think probably just pure hydrogen per., could do the trick too since it creates an oxygen reaction if applied but i didn't know that than and i heard fluor toothpaste dries off acne maybe it dries of wart too- i don't know this for sure but i know it works for pimples for sure.with this emberassing problem i didn't even show this to a doctor, i just cured it at home, without telling anyone, but i'm telling this now to anyone who is reading this site, no worries there is cure for genital warts too, u can do it..
ps2: this what i wrote down it only worked on a wart that looks like a bug bite or has that big pimple look, it didn't work on a wart that looks like a skin tag or "roosters hair", with that i did have to go for nitrogen treatment. [maybe the banana peel,potato or hydrogen peroxide works on that too..]
ps3: oxygenate your body with with drinking oxy water every day, or put oxy drops in your water from health food stores,or doing the baking soda -citric acid mix half and half will oxygenate your body or hydrogen peroxide in your water-why oxygen? because no virus can live in an oxygen rich body, helps to destroy viruses and bacterias as well.
ps4: I also think that going to a tanning salon during the outbreak helps. I noticed after tanning it pushed it out even more. [i think this is because Uv light also kills viruses and bacterias]so it helped to push the virus out. BUT PLEASE IF YOU HAVE THE OUTBREAK ONLY GO TO A STAND UP MACHINE-NO BEDS!- so your genital will not touch the machine-who knows if they clean it properly, for your protection also, with an open sore you can pick up something.So if the stand up machine is busy when you go, just wait for it, don't use the bed! Do the tanning maybe 2 times a week [or 3, if you don't burn], naked-don't cover the wart, don't touch it make sure your genital don't touch the bulbs. You'll see doing this too will help to speed up the healing process.
Garlic, Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil
Okay so I went a little "cure" crazy and tried everything in two days. My results are amazing. The doctor said go to a dermatologist as I was just diagnosed last week. He also said many may not want to treat me....I read that most medical cures didn't work anyway....and I'm not a fan of doctors in the first place. Sooooo I hit the net.....
1st thing I tried was mincing garlic and compressing the affected area which is the foreskin on the bottom side of my penis, directly beneath my urethra.......sensitive location.
Garlic hurts like nothing you can imagine....and then washing with water hurts as well.....not sure the garlic did anything but make me suffer but I won't rule it out as a starting point. I followed that up with fresh aloe I cut from my plant at home. I slept with aloe on the affected area. I added quite a bit and frequently.
The 2nd day (yesterday) I applied garlic first....ouch...then aloe to soothe. I then applied Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. It did not burn right away which means it is penetrating the warts....however the second application that night did start burning. I cleaned up applied several drops.of tea tree oil and aloe and went to bed. This morning I noticed the area around the warts had turned a purplish black....I thought I killed my penis.....all the while I'm drinking 3-4 tablespoons of of the AC vinegar diluted with water for the 2 days....
Tonight I exfoliated with a homemade oatmeal scrub soap bar and 80%of the affected area rubbed away entirely. It isn't 100% gone yet but it looks 1,000 times better and by tomorrow will likely be gone completely. It is now a bit raw from the exfoliation, I applied more aloe and I will see what tomorrow brings. You can likely skip the garlic.....don't get ACV in your urethra, feels like death....tea tree, ACV, and Aloe work and hurt much less than garlic....
Garlic, Job's Tears, Tea Tree Oil, Diet
After two months where I was inflicted with Genital Warts, I had begun on an oral remedy for Genital Warts.
01) Job's Tears
I had the Job's Tears soup, the white beans boiled in water, eaten whole with the water based solution without sugar.
1 pint per day, 3 days a week.
02) Raw Garlic
I had 3 mini cloves of crushed raw garlic which I swallow with water.
3 days a week.
03) Cut Down on Sugar
04) Brocolli Carrots
(Water Boiled for 2-3 mins)
3 days a week
Note: I applied Tea Tree Oil for 3 weeks continuously where growth of Genital Warts did not seem to retard. In addition, I applied H2O2, hydrogen peroxide, which in one occasion caused bleeding at the inflicted wart area.
To date, 2 months of the above remedy, no sizable Genital Warts re-appear in the Penis Region.
Using tactile touch, I spot some very small warts at the anal region.
But generally, I am glad that either the Raw Garlic or the Job's Tears Solution is working to improve my immune system which would counteract on the viral infection which brings about the Genital Warts (GW).
As it is, as research has shown as GW is a viral infection, I do believe an oral remedy instead of a topical remedy is more effective as it seeks to correct the problem at its 'root'/cause.
This is my final update, I would seek to update the readers of my progress of the continued oral application of cocktail of
01) Raw Garlic 02) Job's Tears in 6 months time.
Just take note, every sex encounter you have IS A RISK TO STD, condoms don't have.
Just find someone and be faithful to each other... it's hard, but it beats getting weird dieases like warts and herpes!
Summary, I stopped sex activities after this experience. And will opt to be much more careful with the next confirm life partner... getting STD from flings, etc is not worth it!
Repentence, I'm curious to know your results of Job's Tears and Garlic consumed 3x weekly. You said you would touch back in 6 months, but I haven't seen another post. I also believe the virus needs to be killed internally, to prevent recurrence. I've read a lot about garlic and how it has antiviral and antifungal properties. Do you still have warts or did the cure work for you? Thanks.
Garlic, Job's Tears, Tea Tree Oil, Diet
For the Non-Oriental Reader,
please note, Job's Tears is Chinese Barley. Please do not confuse this with Barley grown in the west.
To ensure that you bought the right item,
these are its several names, Yi(4) Ren(2), Job's Tears, Coix lacryma-jobi, Coixseed, Adlay, Hatomugi or Adlai.
Please note, if you managed to buy it in its original form, (from the Chinese herbal shops or any other TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine shops) it is in the form of hard White Beans.
You need to boil it in water for an hour and drink the solution. You do not need to eat the leftover solute barley, drinking the solvent barley water is good enough.
Just for extra precaution, I am drinking the water and eating the boiled seeds.
The Job's Tears is a home remedy used by Chinese for 2000 yrs for warts treatments.
I am currently undergoing a cocktail of 3 Raw Garlic (mini) Cloves a day, (If you are eating it raw, pls mix it with food, or else it would burn your tongue). And I am drinking the Job's Tears boiled solution as often as I can. In addition, for topical application, I am using 100% Tea Tree Oil on the warts.
Please note, this is the 7th day since my first liquid nitrogen wart treatment. After the nitrogen treatment, I was very frightened as I saw new warts growth from areas on my penis. I did not do a visual inspection for the next 2-3 days. After my dosage of garlic (Raw cloves, orally taken) the warts growth has retarded into white sore spots. Through my reading, genital warts is a condition due to viral infection, as the Chinese TCM beliefs, it is important to treat the illness at its root, and thus, I believe from the above experiment (sadly on my own body, but I do not intend to have kids anymore nor sex as I am reluctant to inflict the girl I love with my dieases) it is more important to have a diet change to ensure that one has an input of food that have Anti-Viral Properties. The input of diet would ensure that the wart at its 'root' beneath the skin would be controlled, since it may / may not be eliminated totally.
in summary, I am undergoing a cocktail of
3 Mini Raw Garlic Cloves
2 500ml (Pint) of Job's Tears solution (You may want to add sugar for it to be sweet)
3 Topical Applications of 1-2 Drops of 100% Tea Tree Oil on the Wart.
(Upon application of the Tea Tree Oil, I try to allow the oil to dry before dropping another drop)
NOTE: Job's Tears can be obtained Cheaply at the Chinese Herbal Stores.
If you really can't find any near your area, try www DOT euyansang DOT com
Garlic - Supermarket? I opt for raw garlic as I think that the pills / tablet forms would not be as effective.
For 100% Tea Tree Oil, please go to your local pharmacy. NOTE: I am using the 100% pure, not diluted with water type for TEA TREE OIL, it's more expensive, but at least it's natural and more potent compared to the water diluted counterpart.
I hope this helps.
Garlic, Job's Tears, Tea Tree Oil, Diet
To the despaired reader, I am very shame and regretful that I have contracted Genital Warts of which I am not sure which of the 2 girls I had sexual relationship with had the HPV virus. I went through the Liquid Nitrogen treatment which to me was painful as my threshold of pain in very low. I also feel very regretful as I do not know if I can lead an honest healthy life again whereby my future gf would accept me as I am. I tried the Garlic remedy for a period of less than 5 days. I had been eating raw garlic cloves placed in sandwiches and I have also had the Job's Tears which I believe is simply Barley (to the chinese), and I am amazed to see that the genetal warts are gone. I believe I still have the virus but the growth has disappeared. Thank you, Earth Clinic for this info which is where I found the info, I promise in return to return to the society in other ways. Thank you EC and God. Regards

I tried the home remedies too but I stopped when I noticed a stinging sensation from the apple cider vinegar remedy. I have a pain tolerance of a little girl (LOL) so I looked for something else that is painless. After researching online, I settled on trying Wartscide. So far, so good! It says to wait for about two days for the warts to blacken and then fall off. Mine are getting there... only a matter of time before they fall off.
Garlic, Red Wine Vinegar
Red Wine Vinegar and Garlic cured my genital warts. I recently discovered bumps around my vagina and thought they were pimples, but when they didn't go away for 3 weeks, I went to my doctor and was told I had genital warts (HPV). I was devasted. I felt nasty and dirty. I was actually crying in the office. My doctor gave me a perscription for Aldara cream. The medicine had so many side effects. I used the medicine for one night and to my surprise, I discovered MORE WARTS spreading....that was one of the side effects listed on the instruction sheet! After searching online, I read on this site about garlic and apple cider vinegar for genital warts and wanted to give it a try. I started off by doing a cleaning of red wine vinegar every time I went to the bathroom, dabbing each wart with a q-tip or cotton ball... it stings like crazy... but afterwards if feels like it's working. I washed my vagina 2-3 times a day with "neem"(a healing plant from india) soap. I also bought a bottle of liquid garlic, I puntured one capsule and applied the liquid garlic on each wart before bed. I also began taking 3 capsules of liquid garlic in the morning and 3 before bed (6 a day). By the fourth day, the warts were extremely small. My confidence in these remedies are soaring and I am continueing on this regime until I am healed. For added bonus, I have also applied the essential oil Tea tree oil to each wart at least 3x's a day with a q-tip (3 drops on the q-tip). I was careful to keep my hands and nails very clean while treating myself. For the future I plan to share these remedies with my doctor and I plan to practice safer sex with my life partner.
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 have recently discovered I have 3 small warts and I am going to start using the method everyone is suggesting, but I have one question. I am allergic to aspirin. Will this apply if I am just applying it and not swallowing? I really want to get rid of these things since they are making me feel horrible about myself. Is there any other pill I can use?
Thank you so much! Reply appreciated.
Hi Melanie. I don't know about the aspirin. But if you can stand the smell of Tea Tree Oil. I was able to get rid of a huge wart on the bottom of my foot in the crease where the big toe bends down. I applied TTO to a cotton ball every night when I went to sleep. Put the cotton ball on the wart and covered with athletic tap, then put a sock on. Next morning I would just remove, shower and go to work, again at night repeat....
This was a really big wart and had a black center. It went away within a couple weeks if I remember correctly. It got smaller and smaller and I don't even know when it actually come off. I just noticed when I went to apply TTO it was gone. No scar or soreness.
The smell of the Tea Tree Oil was awful though. It would bother me until I went to sleep.
I have visited this sight many times and have tried many of the remedies. Has anyone tried Papillex for the treatment (cure) of HPV? Did it work?
(Los Angeles, California)
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 am a 21 year old female who was told 5 years ago (after receiving the vaccine) that I had HPV after an abnormal growth was found on my cervix. They did not mention that this growth was a wart (which I think is pretty safe to assume now). I cried and the doctor told me that the strand I had goes away on its own and does not really have any symptoms.
Three months after the abnormal pap I no longer tested positive for HPV and was like HOORAY!!! I thought I was cured, what my doctor failed to mention was that it can lay dormant for many years. Although I have practiced safe sex I have since then been in two long and monogomous relationships, both with mutual testing (after the HPV scare, I was rather obsessed with never getting another std).
Then I started having thyroid storms and my health took a drastic turn for the worse..... Lowering my immune system drastically.
About a week ago I noticed a spot between my vagina and rectum that was a little hard. I originally believed it was just a scar from some adventerous sexual intercourse but I kept an eye on it. It was so small I had a hard time getting a good look at it so I took a picture with my camera and zoomed in on it on my computer just to come to the conclusion many of you have. I read online that a good way to test to see if a spot is indeed a genital wart is to apply a gentle acid. I have used apple cider vinegar for cooking in the past and have dranken it for its health benefits years ago, so I had it readily available (a huge gallon) in my kitchen.
I dabbed it in the area and to my horror, pretty much my entire vagina, pernium, and rectal region turned white!!! I had no idea how microscopic those darn little boogers could be.
After a day of intense crying, researching, and debating over what do I do... I decided to confide in my best friend, who happened to be a male of non sexual relations. He instantly made me feel better by saying that if he met a woman he was in love with, genital warts would not be a deterient. He was actually impressed by how I was coping :)
I then told my mother who took it surprisingly well and showed up with another gallon of apple cider vinegar :) I don't think I could use this much vinegar ever!!
Today I went from smoking half a pack of smokes a day down to 3. I am also choosing not to drink. Both of these life choices should have been made as soon as my health decreased.... But it took GWs for me to make this drastic life change. I am also taking all sorts of vitamins and oral Apple Cider Vinegar pills as well (it tastes so bad to drink)!
Pretty much I found out my entire genital region was covered with them and started of by dabbing them with q-tips of Apple Cider Vinegar making them turn white and many of the small ones I had no clue about have bled. I have read that the bleeding is normal so I was not too worried about it. The bump on my pernium has turned a dark grey today and hurts like hell, I think its because it wants to fall off. But many of the other spots turned red and completely flat against the skin but have a white center in them? I don't really know if this is normal but I am guessing it is like the root possibily?
The treatments have also been rather painful for me the entire duration, but I think it might be because many had not even started to grow, so there wasn't much tissue it had to penetrate.
I have been using a regional medicated ointment by Rawleigh, that is actually for colds and congestion (much like vix) but also heals cuts, wounds, burns, and even hemorroids. It is a life saver!!! It has menthol in it so the area is immediatly cooled down to an almost pleasurable level. It contains Camphor, menthol, oil of eucalyptus, in a base of petrolatum, mineral oild, paraffin, ceresin, and cocoa butter.... I don't know if it can be bought online but I would greatly recommend it. Legit takes pain down like no other. I also have an extremely swollen genital area and it helps with that as well.
After all the pain I have put my vagina through this past week, its like a spa retreat :P
Also, I found that for me soaking cotton balls in the avc, lining them from clit to all the way past my rectum (rather be safe than sorry) and then putting on a pantylined thong has helped me keep the avc where I would like it... I can't even imagine attempting to use bandaids or tape!
But please if you have any questions feel free to ask, also if anyone else has had any of the white spots in the center I would greatly appreciate hearing what you think!
Remember, we are still worth while and sexy individuals, regardless of these pesky GWs!!!
i do have discharge and I think I have a white spot on the inside of my vagina, ive just notice that I have some white bumps around my cloitors and a large patch on the bottom opening of my vagina I have been drinking green tea and 2multi-vitamin and 800mg of folic acid also I have gotten Lipton Pure Green Tea bags cut one open and mix the tea with apple cider vinger I did this for 3 days and the fell off, I thought I was done so I (stupidly) stop everything no vitamins no green tea/acv paste EVERYTHING and they came back but I have started a more developed method that I will do for 2 complete weeks I have now included
500mg of garlic pills, and 500mg apple cider vinger pills 3 in the am and 3 pm OF EACH ( so thats 6 pills each morning and night) on lunch I will take my 2 multi vitamin and 1 800mg of folic acid pill so I can kill the virus from the inside out
on the outside I have been applying tea tree oil on the vagina, on the bumps and around my entire bottom so the warts dont spread and I have been applying the pure green tea bags/apple cider vinger paste I clean the areas everytime I go to the bathroom with hydro proxide and while at work I just apply coconut oil and tree tea oil with q-tips(bc I cant stay 30 mins in the bathroom at work lol) ill update this again after my two weeks I started 10/3/12 so my 2 wks will end 10/17/12 after the 2 wks I will continue the garlic pills and apple cider vinger pills but will only take 2 pills/each (so 4 total in the am) and again 2 pills/each in the pm (so again 4 in the pm) so this helps
I would like to say thank you to all of you. I have hpv I felt like dying when I found out I have my leep done however now am having out breaks of genital warts am so afraid. I want to get better for my kids and all the info you guys have given is inspiring me to continue. I have the worst gyn and now am going to see an ent just to make sure my throat is find. Please keep me in your prayers for I have been getting throat infections for the past six months. Thanks again.
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?
(Abakaliki, Ebonyi, Nigeria)
You don't have to go through all those painful treatments. I've been there done that. It's as simple as drinking 3 or 4 cups of green tea a day and they will disappear in about 3 month totally. The FDA even approved a topical treatment made out of green tea extract. So the secret is drink green tea every day for at least 3 months or more. I'm sure you have green tea available in your country. Love .and take care
Hi I've had gw now for over 2 years with frequent outbreaks. I'm 20 and I've been to the doctors and to clinics and asked for pap smears because I have hpv but they always say that it's ok and that I dont need to have a pap until I'm 25, should I be having regular paps? Also does anyone get abnormal discharge when warts appear I'm having quite a bad outbreak and I'm having so much discharge that I need to wear a panty liner also it's quite yellow but with no odor. But I have been applying castor oil to calm them down and sometimes tincture of thuja. Could this have caused thrush maybe? Is that what could cause the discharge? I never knew that you needed to take vitamins and such to boost your immunity so I will start today. When I have been to the doctors they don't seem to know much about hpv and just give me more warticon each time (which I have a bad reaction to). Anyway I am very grateful for this site and have read alot and will start to take folic acid and vitamins. Thank you
