A couple of months ago I discovered I had genital warts. At first I thought I had a skin tag but the longer I waited the more I realized they weren't just skin tags. I also did something INCREDIBLY STUPID. I PICKED IT OFF. The next day I could see that there were millions of little bumps where the blood had ran. Of course, I freaked the fuck out. I am not here to give you a remedy. Because I feel like there should be more stories on here that don't always end with '....annnnd now they're gone!'. Firstly, I would like to say that you aren't alone. It has been really hard for me to tell ANYONE about this and most of you might feel the same way. So just keep in mind that there are MILLIONS of other GOOD people going through the same thing you are. I am not the kind of girl that sleeps around a lot but I made the mistake of not using a condom ONE TIME and that's really all it takes. I am here to tell you to calm down and things will be better, there really are worse things that could happen. This is a virus and this also just happens to be a strain you cannot get rid of no matter how many immune boosting supplements you down. Although that is true, I don't want to seem like I know everything and anything about GW... because a month ago I was scouring the internet just like you are or did. The most raved about remedy is Apple Cider Vinegar especially by Braggs. I have tried this and because mine where everywhere I took a paper towel soaked in Braggs ACV and for three days I would hold that over the entire area for at least 15 mins. And yes, I know 'you're supposed to leave it on longer' well I honestly did not want to chemically burn myself so I went the slow way with a lot less pain. The next day I did notice a lot of white but I did notice that a tiny little bumps were gone. long story short I continued this for 3 weeks and decided that I shouldn't do it topically anymore because it was burning more healthy skin than infected skin so I just decided to drink 1-2 Tbsp of it everyday. In addition to this, I have added 1000IU vitamin D3 to my daily multivitamin list as well as 500mg of B12 (I think!)as well as 500mg of fish/krill oil and try to drink as much water as I can. In addition, instead of putting the ACV topically I slather coconut oil (another one people talk about a lot) all over at night and some in the morning. And I need suggestions... they aren't going away and actually three more have popped up and the 3 existing ones are getting bigger. I have been debating spot treating them with ACV but I don't know if I should wait it out? or if I should stick to what i'm doing? or if i should add spot treating as well... I'm freaking out.. Im healthy I eat relatively clean, drink mostly water and, work out everyday. Has anyone not been able to get rid of theirs? has anyone had any recurrences? any type of answer will be greatly appreciated. thank you.
