I just want to add my praise to the ACV method for wart removal I was beginning to think the big, ugly wart on my thumb would be there for the rest of my life. I tried the OTC products which were smelly and didn't seem to do a thing. I had the liquid nitrogen treatment at my doctor's office to the tune of $168.
Then, last Monday I read about the ACV method. I had some Apple Cider Vinegar in my cupboard, some cotton swabs and some bandages so I started that night.
• First, I poured a little ACV into a tiny plastic container that had a lid and removed the cotton from the tip of a cotton swab rolling it into a ball.
• Next, I dropped the ball into the ACV.
• I put the bandage on my thumb, leaving one side hanging.
• Then, I removed the ball of cotton from the ACV with tweezers and placed it on top of the wart and pulled the bandage snugly over the cotton ball.
• Finally, I put the lid back on the container and put it aside to use again the next night.
The first feeling I sensed was a pulsing in my thumb, then it did hurt in a throbbing way. Not unbearable but definitely noticable.
The next morning, the wart was raised and black and there was a white ridge around it. It was tender. I left the bandage off all day and the raised white edge subsided after a few hours. The black wart area had the usual rough “cap” on it.
I repeated the treatment on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and by Thursday, the pain was gone. I was away from home Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and did not want to do the treatment while away so I covered the black area of the wart with some nail polish I had that was similar to the color of my flesh to disguise the ugly black spot.
I removed the nail polish and resumed the treatment on Sunday night.
This morning (Monday), I removed the bandage and decided to try and pick the black spot out while it was softened from the overnight treatment. It was crumbly, like large ground pepper particles. I used tweezers to remove the black, leaving the white circle that surrounded the black spot and could see pink underneath. At first, I thought it was raw skin and was afraid it might begin to hurt or bleed but was pleasantly surprised to find it was actually a new layer of skin below.
While in the shower, I used a pumice on the white circle to smooth it down a bit.
Now, five hours later, I am very optimistic that this thing may be gone for good. It’s a little rough around the edge where the circle was but the center is nice, new skin rather than ugly wart crust.
It is not painful or tender at all and the best part is how inexpensive the treatment was. In all, I used 3 cotton swabs, 4 bandages a dab of nail polish and a little apple cider vinegar. I wish I had known about this treatment a long time ago. I can’t wait to get started on my other wart. It’s much smaller and is on the lower part of my middle finger.
