I had a wart on the pad below my big toe for three years. Went to podiatrist many times for freezing and took anti acid and used expensive cancer creams. Nothing worked. It was one of the most painful thing I ever experienced. Within two weeks of applying ACV with a little toilet paper and a band aid with tape so it didn't come off, it went completely away in two weeks! I noticed as it was going away that it was actually two warts, but looked like one.
Better But With Side Effects
Hi, I recently used ACV for a wart (about pea sized) the heel of my palm. I soaked the tip of a cotton swab, put it on the wart and covered it with tape. To keep it secured I had to pretty much tape my whole hand. On the second day (today) I just had paper tape on over the wart (no acv) and when I took the tape off, I noticed the wart and the surrounding area (nickel size) was "loose" and the good skin and the wart just peeled off. There does feel like there's still wart there, but the surrounding skin looks as if I was burned. So I guess I'm wondering if this is normal and continue treatment or should I discontinue and try something else? Thanks so much for this site and everyones input!

I have plantar warts in my right foot I read here in earth clinic that Apple Cider Vinegar best for removal of warts, I try and follow the instruction and after 2 days the warts was gone.. Thank God those who give their ideas for others health.. keep up the good work, pay it forward..
I have been curing warts on my hands with ACV for 6 days now. And when I do not have ACV with on, I pour some castor oil on it. But, they got three times bigger. They hurt a bit. And only the top became black. I was wondering if I should continue?
Is it supposed to be like this in some cases? The thing is I am affraid that they will just keep growing and they will not go away :(. Please somebody answer. Thank you!
I have never written a review before but felt that I had to share my experience. After having a plantar wart on my foot for several years it began to spread. I tried everything under the sun from Dr's visits to banana peels & duct tape but NOTHING worked. That was until I began treating the infected area with ACV. The entire process took approximately 2 weeks & was beyond simple! Every night I would take a cotton ball soaked in ACV & tape it down across the warts surface-keeping it covered only when I slept. In the AM I would thoroughly wash my feet & make sure they were 100% dry before putting on my socks & shoes. Every couple of days I would file down the wart with an emery board & cut away the "dead" skin with a razor blade. I repeated this process for two weeks & to my surprise the nasty little buggers disappeared before my eyes. Since my treatment I have been plantar wart free with no signs of any new ones on the horizon!!!
WOW.. I have had a verruca on my big toe for about 7 years.. It then grew into 20 all round my foot!!! I managed to get rid of all the small ones with duct tape but 2 remained! :( I have been applying ACV on my massive one for about a month now and I can say its almost gone!! The only downside is that its painful and I couldnt sleep because of it!
My advice is be patient because my one on my big toe is very deep but the vinegar seems to be taking all the roots to the surface, I would highly recomend ACV to everyone!
And by the way I know how embarassing these verrucas are! I use to cry almost every day and my poor mum felt helpless, plus I could never wear high heels with bare feet because I was scared they would spread! My doctor said " its only a verruca for god sake " I honestly just about punched him in the face!!!! if only he knew how much it brings down my confidence :( :(
TRY ACV! I GUARANTEE RESULTS, NO MATTER HOW STUBBORN YOUR VERRUCA IS!!!!
I recently stumbled across this ACV for warts info after having a wart in my hand for approx. 30 yrs... Doctors tried everything to get rid of it short of cutting my hand because it's on my right hand and I was afraid of needing to much help. It's smack dead in the center of my palm. Since the thing never went away I just learned to live with it as a child totally ignoring & telling other kids it was a weird Birthmark. Well I want you to know that I started using ACV on Wednesday and it has opened up and I see the yukky inside of it. Which is something it has never done before with any other treatment. So I pray this is the miracle I have been looking for concerning my hand. I will keep you posted... BTW this thing burns and stings like a Bon of a sitch (dyslexic cursing) lol! Keep your fingers crossed for me. I've waited. Long time to be rid of this thing... And my 40th bday is next week, that would be a great gift!!
Does anyone have experience trying to use apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar) with a case of warts as massive as the following? I am scheduled for surgery in 14 days, but the warts are growing so fast right now that in 7 days they have gone from being an invisible cauliflower-like mass inside the anus to a cookie-sized mass jutting outside of the rectum, stuck between the butt checks visibly and threatening to keep growing beyond the confines of the cheeks next. My surgeon and doctor have refused to shrink the mass in between my colonoscopy (which fortunately showed no cancer inside anywhere) and the surgery in two weeks, and said it's too large for topical medicines, etc. I was only diagnosed in August, immediately scheduled the earliest possible laser treatment, and have been unable to get laser treatments more frequently than two weeks apart, which has proved to be enough time for the wart mass to regain all of the size it lost from Laser treatment 14 days prior. That's why they recommended the surgery (which from what I read online could have an INTENSELY painful "recovery" period afterwards and that the warts will likely return, though treatments thereafter may be easier as they'll be smaller. I am petrified of this period if I can't get maintenance/treatments more frequently than two weeks or more apart while they speed-expand (assuming that continues post-surgery. ).
I tried the vinegar last night just with the hope of keeping them from becoming a tail outside my butt. So far it's not clear to me anything has happened but it's very hard to see back there. Looks like the tip may be a little white, and I'm not even sure the mass hasn't grown again since last night. Hard to say. My doctor has recently seen cases even worse than mine--the day before laddering mine she had treated someone with a mass that extended all the way to the testacles, and she was unshackled and unperturbed by the size when she first saw me in August. (She works in a clinic that sees a lot of rectal and hpv-related conditions, though the focus is on HIV there and I am negative for HIV, am otherwise very healthy, got the warts from a long term monogamous partner, who I'm no longer with, for three years. ) Should I keep up with the burn of the vinegar or follow my doctors advice and let it become a painful bloody life threatening tail before a surgery that could produce months of even greater pain at least while passing bm? Who has treated internal masses this way? Anyone?
My daughter has had a nasty wart on her knee for almost 7 months and we have been to the Dr. twice and had it frozen and have tried every o/c treatment there is out there finally got referred to a dermotologist.. Very expensive so far! SO I decided to search for some home remedies before we go to another costly Dr.and found out about Apple Cider Vinegar, boy am I glad we did!! After 3 days of treating it it began to turn black, on the 4th day it actually shriveled up and fell off!! YEAH!! For the next few days we still treated it to make sure we got the root!! What a great home remedy!!
I have a nasty wart on the end of my ring finger, right on the tip and a little under the nail. Well, I cut the nail back as short as possible and have been soaking it in ACV for the past 2 days and then I have been using a piece of cotton ball absorbed in ACV, covering it with bandaids and leaving it overnight. Well this evening I decided to go ahead and do this earlier and leave it on a while longer.. The pain was horrible!! Throbbing pain.. and made even my pinky hurt, just pain coming hard and barely letting up.. Finally, right now I couldn't take it anymore (had it with ACV and bandaids for 6 hours) and went in the bathroom to take off the bandaids...
What a mess I have :( it hurts so BAD.. And well the wart is blackish brown and a tint of yellow and the skin hurts so bad around it.. I dont know if I can continue.. But, I don't know at this point what else to do. I have already had the wart burned twice and it is going nowhere.. So I think for the night I will leave it alone.. It hurts too much and feels raw.. And looks so deformed, the skin and the wart is so big, bigger than it was.. Goodness, I wanted this to work. I would love feedback from anyone.. I am thinking, should I try the banana peel?.. maybe it would be less painful? Thank you.

My daughter developed a wart in the middle knuckle of her left hands when she was 18 months old. For 2 and a half years I tried all the over the counter remedies out there. I even took her to the doctor and had him "freeze" it. Nothing worked. All that happened was that the skin around the wart got raw and sore. I eventually stumbled across this remedy on the internet. I soaked a small piece of cotton in apple cider vinegar and put it on top of her wart covering the whole thing with a bandaid every night for just over a month. The wart turned black and eventually peeled off revealing beautiful clear pink skin underneath. This definitely works!

Ive had a massive planters wart on my foot for over 5 years. Ive had it removed once before and that was painful, couldn't walk, so they gave me crutches and I had gotten really sick from the medication afterwards.
I looked up home remedies and tried ducktape first, with no luck after about 2 weeks I wanted to kick it up with the APC. It worked great the first week, I noticed the wart became flat and was looking great. Then it all went down hill, I have a pretty big pain tolerance so at first the trobbing/beginning pain was ok but by the end of the second week this was too much. It was killing the wart but with such pain walking on that foot became impossible, then putting on a shoe was too painful. I cant even manage my sandles right now, let alone a pair of socks. I was wearing the APC soaked in a cotton swab 24hrs/day. Took it down to only at night but it was still compleatly awful, the blanket was too much weight on my foot. It's been just over 3 weeks with APC and today I'm stopping compleatly. Im going on vacation in a week and would really like to be able to wear shoes and perhaps if I'm lucky WALK!
So yes, acp works but its PAINFUL. I imagine it would have worked a lot better if my wart wasn't so deep. A new wart that's still pretty small would have probibly given up by now, but if you have a deep one that wants to hold on with all its got this may not be whats right for you. All I can say is, OUCH!
I have seen 2 doctors about a painful small bump under the skin of my foot heel. It does seem to have a pinpoint center, but is flush with the skin. One Dr said it was a plugged sweat gland, and clipped skin away and prescribed cream. The other doctor (podiatrist)said it was a wart. He used a scapel on it too and put acid on it. One day later after seeing the podiatrist, there is no change. I would like to try the apple cider vinegar on it but it does not stick up above the surface. It is painful and I have to use pads around the bump so as to not put pressure on it.
Please advise, Annete
Is it safe to use apple cider vinegar method on my heel wart when having type 2 diabetes.
Apple cider really works!!!
Apply a little cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar every night, attached with some tape and in less than one week you will see how the wart starts disappearing. I had tried every chemical I found for months and nothing worked. No salicylic acid, no freezing, nothing! Try it!
