About 1 month ago, I came down with a plantars wart below the great toe and just above the instep when I noticed a burning sensation. It was a small white spot. I had 13 warts between the 2 feet when I was a teen and I don't remember them hurting this bad at the onset. Maybe this one is a different type? Anyway I think the ACV worked but it burned constantly and it just wore me down, so I tried the shampoo with zinc pyrithione (a sample size of Head and Shoulders dandruff shampoo) last night. I got immediate relief. Did it again before I went to bed and this morning I can step on my foot. Everytime I put the shampoo on it seems to get better, the deep pain around the wart when pressed is much less. I used it full strength and scrubbed it gently with an old toothbrush and let it dry without rinsing it off. The center is dark. I hope this is the ticket. They sure are miserable things.
This didn't work for me. But I have found something that does and is a LOT LESS painful than ACV. I caught 3 warts from a manicure/pedicure and for the life of me couldn't get rid of them. I tried Compound W, then finally ACV. ACV was VERY painful and just outright torture. I did the whole band aid at night with the vinegar and it did turn black but never fell off. I had to pull it off with tweezers. Well, this didn't get the whole thing (and it also gave the surrounding skin a chemical burn), there was still "dots" left in the skin so the darn thing was still there growing back. After doing 2 rounds of excruciating ACV treatments I finally gave up. I was tired of the pain and open wounds.
I then tried Brewer's yeast pills but for some reason, supplements make my moods go awry so I had to stop. Then I read a post by a girl who used Selson Blue anti-dandruff shampoo. It's main ingredient is Zinc Pyrithione. This was going to be my last ditch effort to combat these warts, and I just knew it wouldn't work. Well... It did! Several times a day, I gently wash my warts with this shampoo (with a nail brush). After about a week, they were GONE. They just dried up and went away. You have to try this, you don't have to endure this painful vinegar treatment anymore, zinc pyrithione is your new friend. They have not come back and my skin looks so healthy now where the warts used to be. Thanks be to GOD!
