I have to say a great big thank you to everyone on here for their advice about putting ACV on their plantar fibroma. I've had to quit work because of fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
Among other things these last six months, I've had the pleasure of watching these horrendous lumps growing on the bottom of both my feet called plantar fibroma. It was getting very painful 😢 to walk because of it and because of my other issues.

I put on the ACV last night on a paper towel and wrapped it in a plastic bag. I've already noticed a difference. I cant wait to see what doing this for a week will do. So God bless all of you for posting your results and sharing.


Borax + MSM

I have plantar fibromas also and have found that taking minerals such as Boron/Borax (use Mule Team for a natural source of Boron) and organic sulfur (MSM). Both are major detox minerals so read up on medicinal doses to determine what quantities are right for you.

Start slow and increase as you acclimatize. I take both at times and each has worked well in its own right but together they work wonders. I have managed to almost eliminate the pain and stop the lumps from growing larger. I am presently monitoring my progress and have noticed a slight reduction in their size.

I will have to keep you posted on further progress. I have gone from having much difficulty walking and excruciating pain when laying down to now functioning normally even with massive lumps in my insteps. Friends wonder how I walk and yet I do.

There is a great article you can google called ‘Borax The Cure For Arthritis! – The Borax Conspiracy – on YouTube'. This explains a lot and gave me hope to have my own body correct its imbalance and clear away the growths. It appears to be happening. Yippee!!

In my mind the body is misplacing its healing objective and needs to feed the parathyroid (the operations manager for the needs of the body) boron so it can correct its error. I adhere to the natural healing methodology where healing takes half the time it took to develop the issue.


Frankincense Essential Oil

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a tender spot on the bottom of my foot - in the arch. There were no signs of trauma to my foot, but I could feel a lump in the muscle in my arch. It was uncomfortable to put pressure on it.

Pretty sure it was a plantar fibroma. I noticed on Earth Clinic that one person had used frankincense. Well, that always works well for me and I had it on hand.

Before bed each night, I massaged some frankincense essential oil into the arch of my foot. I also did some gentle stretching.

Within a week the lump in my arch was gone! No more pain and tenderness!

I recently developed a plantar fibroma and would like to try Nattokinase and DMSO since that's what worked for you. I would appreciate it greatly if you would let me know which brands you found effective. Thank you.

Fibromatosis - Nattokinase worked great

Have had plantar fibromatosis for years on both feet. had to quit jogging a while back due to them. decided to give nattokinase a try and worked very well in about 2 weeks of use, twice daily - internally. the pills are 2000 FUs each. I also put pharmaceutical grade dmso on the nodules topically, but I really just think it's the Nattokinase doing the job.

Carol, Mix both bee wax and Vaseline together with a little turmeric in it and apply to any of these types of complaints and seal with plastic or plaster to seal it away from the air. When changing plaster, etc rub with a hard towel after washing to get the pieces that it is been killed off, off the foot.

Are you sure it is a "cyst"? I wonder if slicing a garlic clove and using a waterproof bandage to seal it with on the area every day would help remove it.

I would like to know if anyone has experience with a cyst under foot (plantar area) just underneath a naevus skin. Naevus is normal, but cyst underneath still there, and not sure I can cure it with ACV, because of naevus. Does ACV application damage Naevus skin? or any other remedy? thanks

EC: For those unfamiliar with the word "Naevus", it's the Latin term for Birthmark. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nevus

I need HELP! I have roughly 30 something tumors covering my main tendon on BOTH feet! They are all different sizes and getting bigger with some growing from the tendon into middle of feet. 3 podiatry surgeons and all three say they've never seen a case this bad! They have my tendon pulled tight like a piano string ready to snap (so the docs say). Also they ALL say with surgery, they come back times 100!!! They cause me SEVERE feet cramps that curl my foot up like a fist and when I pull my toes back, they jump up my calves and top of my feet! I've tried Transdermal Cream many times with no change. I don't feel I can walk (limp) much longer. They wake me from a dead sleep screaming with a pillow on my face to not wake anyone. I am DESPERATE!! Even begged to be a guinea pig if they have any type of new laser surgery. Pain meds don't help! I don't think vinegar would penetrate that deep in my foot for these things. If anyone has found any type of relief, PLEASE RESPOND. Thank you. Carol

I suffer from plantar fibroma on my two feet and also had on my two hands.

The one on my hands I can handle the pain by stretching them, but on my feet it is getting worse pain wise (still same size) but pain is getting toward my heel which it started to bother me, with the constan weight I put on them. None of my family got this problem.

The pain on my feet get lesser if I stretch them rolling a glass bottle in the morning before work and at night before bed some times during the day if pain is insoportable. I'm going to try Apple cidar vinegar to see what happens.

Hi Rosa Maria,

I just submitted an updated post about my experience. I did not have a "wart" after all. Scroll down after the photos.

I would try securing a garlic half/slice to that area under a band aid overnight. Then after a shower in the morning, dry it and apply another slice...as thick as you are able to walk on it.

Sealed under a band aid will allow the garlic to penetrate well.

Dear Rhonda,

Well, I stand corrected. After looking up Plantar Fibroma...fibromatosis is what I must have had. This happened in the 50's and I believed what my mother told me. It was not a wart as it was a flat fibrous nodule that was embedded in my heel. It was so painful I remember I could not put my heel down to walk. That is why my mother took me to have it burned out and I remember having a hole there.

Anyway, what is happening now, when that area stays damp if I run around in flip flops, sometimes I will feel "something" in that area that indicates it may be coming back. I cut a garlic clove in half and secure it under a bandage for a few days. The areas I mentioned above are gone at this writing. There is no trace of anything in that area.

Our house is very damp so I keep shoes and cotton socks on most of the time.

Dear Rosa,

You may be surprised at how well the apple cider vinegar absorbs into the skin. We have used it successfully topically many times.

You may wish to dilute the apple cider vinegar with water at first - using half water and half acv.

Hi Marjorie, I was wondering how the treatment for the Plantar Fibroma is going. I am a bit scare to put ACV in the sole of my foot mainly because it feels that my fibroma is way inside my skin and do not see how can ACV can reach the fibroma underneath.

Hi Marjorie,

I was wondering how the ACV treatment was doing for you? I just found this thread and started ACV last night, but I was wondering how long does it take for the pain to go away and curious to know if the fibroma nodule really shrinks in size from using ACV.

Thanks and good luck with your treatment!

So everyone that had their "fibroma" disappear in a few days, that is a plantars wart or some other issue, right? A real Fibroma is Fibrous mass embedded in the fascia, under the skin. Can someone with a real Fibroma report back on their initial posts please? These things do not disappear in a few days. I assume everyone with a magical story was treating a wart or some fungal mass.

ACV for Plantar Fibroma

ACV works very well. My doctor who has been treating my foot told me to keep using ACV because it shrinks the fibers on either end of the fibroma and the pain is almost gone. The steroid shot did nothing but cause me more pain. I'm using a plain ACV, not organic.

Some docs report good success with enzyme injections which may or may not include Xiaflex for plantar fibromas. Not sure we can say nothing is effective.


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by KT (Usa) on 06/03/2017

After using the garlic clove slice, the top part will become like a scab and can be picked off. I'm sorry I don't remember how long it took. After showering reapply the garlic slice and secure it with a band aid. The extra large band aids with adhesive on all four sides would seem to work the best. I didn't have those, I used regular band aids by making a cross to secure the garlic clove slice on the wart. Keep reapplying the garlic slice until it is not there anymore or you don't feel it. Wearing cotton socks is beneficial after the wart is gone because it is important to keep the area dry.

It should be noted a wart on my foot had been burned off about sixty years ago. I just assume wearing flip flops for a couple years during the summer in our garden allowed enough moisture to that area and I could feel the wart coming back. In fact, two seemed to appear side by side but there was no pain and they didn't appear to be warts but because of the area I'm sure that's what they were. The garlic slices worked.

Good luck and please keep us informed!

Ledderhose treated with ACV

Using ACV presently. Apply with a cotton ball in the morning and evening. Have to admit, using the ACV at this point hurts, but it sure is doing something. Had two. Using ACV, the first one disappeared within days. The second one, in the photo, was larger and from what I could tell, the size of a marble. It seems flat. Just not sure when to stop this treatment.....

This is what's going on in the photos.

I tried steroid injections, laser therapy, acoustic therapy, physical therapy, padding and RF coblation. All seemed to work for a short time, but the fibroma on my left foot returned aggressively. I finally had the fibroma removed with a subtotal fasiacotomy followed by radiotherapy. It has been a year now and no recurrence! I do have a little stiffness in the foot, but does not limit my activity. This approach with surgery and radiotherapy is intensive and you should really consider whether you have the stamina to endure and whether the risk are worth the outcome. It was difficult, but the outcome so far has been fantastic. I am currently treating a fibroma on the right foot and will probably have to go down the same road, again.

Plantar Fibroma: I just use arnica gel, but am going to try ACV to see if that helps. I soak my feet in epsom salt and this helps with the pain. I also eat turmeric which helps with the inflammation and circulation. I have heard of cabbage wraps?

Apple Cider Vinegar treatment for Plantar Fibroma

I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar for a week now - everyday. I soak a cotton ball and tape it on to the Fibroma. I leave it in place over night and then replace it in the morning.

At first it just peels. Then it gets darker. Then it turns black.

It's at the point that continuing gets pretty painful but, it is flatter!

I will now stop doing it for a few days so I'll be able to wear normal shoes for an upcoming event. Once that's over I will start up again.

Given that there just aren't that many options it's worth a try. Hope this helps somebody else dealing with Plantar Fibroma.

Fibromas on fascia of feet (Ledderhose aka plantar fibromatosis), hands (Dupuytrens), and penis (Peyronies) are all somewhat related, and are familial. Resist surgical procedures for Ledderhose (on your feet) as long as possible (apply "donuts" around the tumors to alleviate pressure on the tumor), but as the tumor grows and must bear your entire weight, there are currently NO EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS. Ledderhose surgery will spawn more tumors (this is not the case with surgery on Dupuytrens; not sure about Peyronies), so a complete fasciectomy is necessary (the fascia is the "petri dish" on which these tumors grow). Then the tumors will appear on the side of your foot, necessitating care in selecting shoes, but at least they are not weight-bearing or painful. Sad but true ... I have these conditions on all four limbs (I'm female, so can skip the Peyronies! ), and several of my known relatives had these fibromas, and now my daughter has Ledderhose - AND she can't find doctors who know how to treat it!! One actually thought there was fluid and tried to aspirate, and now my daughter has painful masses twice the size as before. Lawsuit ...

Denise (Potomac) Please do keep us updated on your Ledderhose/plantar fibromatosis! Runs in the family, and now my daughter has it. Never heard of cupping and dry needling for it (I've had multiple surgeries - including fasciectomies - on both my feet). Some idiot at Kaiser thought there was fluid and tried to aspirate; now my daughter is in pain and her fibromas are more than double the size they were two days ago. We live 3000 miles apart, so I can't take her to my doctor.

I was glad to see Leslie's post clarifying the issue since many seem to have confused various conditions. I had plantar fibroma on one foot in 2007 and found an article in a podiatry journal about the (then) new use of cryosurgery for this. I found in PA one of a few US podiatrists who use cryosurgery, and it went well, no recurrence. Later I had PF on other foot and again had cryosurgery, again a good outcome (just a few days of recovery). Wikipedia mentions cryosurgery for plantar fibroma, but hardly anyone seems aware of it (including many podiatrists, at least 5-10 years ago).

My podiatrist asked if I had anyone in my family with trigger finger, as the above post said this runs in families. It is showing up in my little finger and palms of my hands now. It is also in the tendon down the outside of my legs, I wondered for years what those painful bumps were and no doctor could tell me. My doctor has a compounding pharmacy mix verapamil-anyhydrous gel. I used it 2 - 3 times a day for 3 minutes for probably 3 months. It reduced them enough I was pain free from 2011. My feet were bothering me again. I hated to check again and there is one about the size of a grape and and of course a line of smaller ones. They say you have these if you have Viking blood, gives me a chuckle and my imagination can roam while I rub my feet again. I will rub this in my hands also. All of this in 2011 nearly led to a completely torn achilles tendon as I attempted to do the stretch exercises for planter fascistic, the more I hurt the more I tried to do my stretches. I am thankful for a good doctor who frowns on surgery because of the damage and they come back often with a vengence. I have Arnica cream and pills so I will give them a try until I get more verapamil gel. My doctor is Mark Lambert, Pensacola Foot and Ankle, he is the best!

I would like to know how ACV shrinks a tumor that is underneath the skin, without breaking the skin? I'm referring to lederhose disease, which I have. Which is a plantar fibroma. All you guys who managed to get rid of yours with ACV, did you also have the lederhose disease or dupuytrens diagnosis and still managed to rid of the lump? If yes, I am going to try. Looking forward to your answers

Planters Wart and Plantar Fasciitis are NOT the same as Plantar Fibromatosis (aka Ledderhose disease). The latter is not an inflammation or a fungus; it is the growth of a fibrous tumor (benign), is often familial (genetic - I.e. in the DNA [Tassia, take note re your sister]), and does not respond to topical creams or ACV. Luis, peeling away dead skin with ACV affects only the outer layer of skin and will not dissolve the internal tumor fibers. I've heard that some people have had success with radiotherapy under certain conditions. Unfortunately, when I got my first fibroma in the arch of my right foot in 1988, by doctor didn't tell me about the condition nor the risk of surgery. Sure enough, within a few months of surgery I had several more larger tumors on that foot; I've had two more surgeries on that foot, including a fasciectomy - but more tumors grew & are still there on the sides. Even as recently as 2005, having held off on surgery on my other foot as long as I could (the entire sole of that foot was one enormous tumor), I finally gave in and saw the doctor who offered no other alternative than surgery (including fasciectomy). A year after that, I have more tumors on the side of that foot. The doctor told me (after the fact) that a skin graft as final step in the surgery minimizes regrowth.

I also have Dupuytrens on both hands; only the contracture between base of my index finger and thumb on my right hand necessitated surgery - three years, and no proliferation of tumors in that spot!

My father & brother had Ledderhose (only one foot) and an aunt had Dupuytrens. If any of the men in my family had Peyronies, they weren't admitting it :-) ... Now my daughter has sprouted a fibroma on the arch of her left foot ...


Multiple Remedies
Posted by Leslie (Maryland) on 02/07/2016

Plantar Fibromatosis, Dupuytrens Contracture, and Peyronies are related manifestations of fibrous tumors that grow on the tendons & fascia of feet, hands, and penis (in that order). Typically genetic, most often appearing in middle age (40's), these tumors have nothing to do with fungi.

These conditions are in no way related to Plantar Fasciitis or "plantar warts".

Plantar Fibroma:

I have had success using arnica. I use arnica cream rubbed deeply into the area and oral homeopathic arnica tabs dissolved under the tongue. Also freezing water in a small round cup and rolling the area intensively over it helps, then heat, rub arnica in intensely and keep up the oral administration of anica. Best of luck! ACV has also helped to alleviate symptoms of it as well and of my sciatica.
