I've had this wart on my finger for almost a year now, I used ACV and it started turning black, the wart came off ( at least I think ) but the inside had a yellow daughter and the outer part of my skin is a light red and hurts a little. Should I continue putting ACV on it or let it go away on it's own .

I'm in my third week of the cider vinegar thing with the mosiac warts & my huge wart has shrunk to about 1/3 of what it was. It is very painful at times after reapplying the vinegar & tape but will be worth it if it goes away & it looks as if it's working. Tried everything else including having the doc cut it out which was very painful, they came back in full force with friends so that didn't work but am seeing good results with the vinegar.

Hey I have a question about the progress I am seeing with my ACV treatment. I am treating a smallish wart on the back of my hand with ACV. At first I used a whole cotton ball, and left it on over night soaked in ACV with a band aid. The next morning it was black. The second night I did the same thing, and awoke to the surrounding skin being very swollen. I stopped treatment after that to let me skin heal. After a week the skin has healed well and the wart has fallen off. Now I have a small crater surrounded by red swollen skin. Inside the crater there was a small black speck (maybe some leftover dead wart) and a small grey patch that looked suspiciously like wart that I didnt get completely (maybe cause I stopped after two treatments). I continued treatment last night (the day the wart fell off) to ensure that I had killed the wart. This time I used a piece of cotton just big enough to fit inside the wart. I also applied vaseline around the wart to protect my irritated skin. This morning I awoke to the crater being filled in a bit with a blackish/dark dark red color. The color is not as dark as the first time. Today I am treating the crater/wart the same way. Throughout the entire process the burning has not been severe, and most of the time does not burn at all. Here are my questions:

1. Since I only did two treatments and stopped, is it likely that I did not completely kill the wart even though it was black, and after a week fell off. (revealing a small black dot and a grey patch (possible wart)).

2. Do I continue treatments when the wart is black?

3. The ACV has never burned as bad as some of these testimony's state. Is this an issue?

P.S thank you for all the feedback on this site, it has been very helpful. I am continuing treatment right now and hope to here from anyone that can give me some information. I am optimisitic about my treatment and feel I can defeat this wart, although it is very stubborn and has not responded to sayllic acid, liquid freezing, and tea tree oil. I'm not sure how old this wart is but I have been treating it off and on for over a year.

I used apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball with tape for three days on a wart and first it turned black but last night it began to hurt allot!! it is very painful and I don't know if I can continue to apply ACV every night. I want to cure it but it really hurts.

I have been on many websites in search of a treatment for warts and so many people have sworn that Apple Cider Vinegar works. I am on my third day of treatment which includes soaking cottonwool in ACV, placing it on the wart and securing with a bandaid. As well as this soak the wart for 20mins a day in ACV. My wart is now very swollen with a white ring around it and the actual wart is black. It is painful and throbs but if it works it will be worth it!
