Green tea - Egcg
Ok so there are lots of treatments out there none of them perfect or comfortable as far as I can tell. I'm mid treatment right now so I can't tell you how it'll turn out but I can tell you its looking good.
The FDA recently passed a new HPV treatment made from extracts of green tea. Its basically EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) its an antioxidant called catechins present inall tea but very abundant in green tea. It kills cancer cells when exposed to them and does a joby-job on warts. I got the persciption and its a whopping 250$ per tube. Forget it I said..I'll make some myself.
Here's what you do:
Go to the healthfood store and get EGCG caplets at least 500 mg. Open them up and mix them with about an ounce or more of shea butter you can also mix it with California Baby calendula first aid cream.
You'll need to do a vinegar test to see all the warts..any vinegar will do ACV or white. Soak a large cotton cosmetic pad in it and hold it on any suspicious areas. Whatever turns white is a wart. You may see lesions that puff up or just skin that turns white..the skin that turns white IS infected treat it as well! If you don't it WILL develop into warts.
Apply your salve 2-3 times per day. The warts will stay white and the skin will turn yellow brown..then by day 2 or 3 you should start to see brown and black spot on the bigger ones. They are dying as the capillaries that feed them are starting to die. They'll get dry and hard and they'll hurt. There is NO pain free treatment for HPV. They all smart a bit. This isn't that bad though. DO NOT PICK..let the skin fall off. You can wash between treatments to make yourself more comfortable. I also put plain shea butter for comfort in between treatments...the warts get dry and I found they hurt more when there is nothing on them.
You can also take ECGC orally as well to supplement your treatment. It'll work faster and better. ECGC has the benefit of boosting your immune systen as well so a continued oral supplement would probably not be a bad thing.
The makers of the marketed drug say you can keep this treatment up for a max of 16 weeks. I expect to be healed faster than that at this rate. My brew is a bit stronger I think. I found that this salve has little to no effect on healthy skin. Just the evil warts!
I'll be tracking my progress and post my results.
