Better But With Side Effects

I have had a few warts for a number of years. A while ago I read here about the treatment with ACV and decided to try. As it didn't go fast enough I tried white, normal vinegar. I applied it to a pad and then taped it to my leg. Everything appeared well, once after my bath I saw that the top layer of the skin was pealing off so as we were going on a 10 day trip the next day I decided to apply it once more and leave it as usual during the night. The next day my leg turned black, not only the wart but all the skin around it and it became more and more nasty. I was worried to death I have to say. It hurt and I couldn't touch it at all. It took a couple of weeks to heal. Now the wart is gone but there is still a bruise on the skin around it far bigger than the wart was. I hope that it will heal..... Bottom line, the white vinegar was maybe far too strong so be careful. I had two other on one hand, smaller ones, did the same treatment but had a smaller wound and I have to say that the warts are still there. I will try again but only with ACV.
