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.

Plantar Fibroma:

ACV has helped me too! I now apply it every other night for about 3-4 hours.

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.

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.

EC: So sorry, your image did not upload.

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.

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 ...

I have fibromas on both feet. I am treating the most painful one as an experiment.

Application Method:

1- Went to the store to buy a breathable band-aid that encloses the area.

2 - took a piece of cotton ball and got it wet with ACV. Placed the cotton ball over the fibroma and enclosed the cotton ball with the band-aid

Applied the treatment after showering and before going to bed. Removed band-aid in the morning.

Results after 1st night:

1- Significant less pain when touching the Fibroma

2- very small area of skin on top of the fibroma was soft and able to peal off the dead skin.

- After the first night, it feels like it is healing. Will continue treatment for two more nights and report back when have a chance.

I've been using ACV for a week now just on the lump area; nothing happened for first three days, then skin around and in top of fibroma peeled off. When top of fibroma skin came off, left perfectly round hole. Next application of ACV made fibroma black underneath the skin.. Looks revolting, but something's definitely happening! Sting/burn too painful to reapply ACV so have applied solugel to give it a rest bc area was very inflamed & painful to walk on. Am waiting to see now. MRI shows nodule very deep, so I dont know if its just burned the top or is affecting the whole fibroma.

My 82 year old father used the apple cider vinegar method as described from Tassia (Berkley) for this and it has worked. He had it on both feet and on one it has almost gone to nothing, the other is slowly going down but was bigger to start with. He did over do it, and ended up with a burn from the acid, but once that healed has only done it at night and has been ok. He used organic and ordinary cider vinegar, and they both have worked. He now can walk without pain.

I read about using ACV on a plantar fibroma with great expectations. All I got was a red, sore burn mark near the fibroma. I soaked a cotton ball with ACV taped it over the spot with plastic and sock covering it. Leary to try it again - just made my foot peel since the area was wet. Any suggestions? Thank you!!
