So, like all of us, I had a gw outbreak.
Preface: this is my first posting, and it's long. I'm sorry in advance.
About nine months ago, the guy I was seeing told me he had found two small bumps on his, ahem, area... One little guy on his shaft, and another little guy on his thigh/hip area closer to his scrotum. I inspected myself, found nothing, but went with him to the doctor. She confirmed his HPV, and froze his warts off. Within a few days they were gone. He hasn't had an outbreak since. I went to the doctor myself a couple weeks later, explained the situation. She told me that I most likely was infected with the HPV virus but because I hadn't had an outbreak, there wasn't anything they could do for me.
About five days ago, I felt some bumps on, embarrassingly enough, my anus. It baffled me because I've never participated in anal sex (and very little anal play ever) and I definitely had genital warts on my butt, and only my butt. Lovely. Found two semi-big ones (smaller than an eraser) and about ten tiny little ones. I looked all around the Internet for home remedies for anal warts and couldn't find anything at all, and I really didn't want to involve a doctor if I didn't have to (especially on such a sensitive area). So, I decided to try some things you guys have suggested.
I decided to take a three-tiered approach. First, I got myself some vitamin supplements (mainly vitamin a, b12, d and e), folic acid and fish oil supplements while drinking a couple mugs of Echinacea tea a day to boost my immune system and get this virus out. Secondly, I got myself a bottle of tea tree oil and some ACV. Third, and this was, to me, by far the most important part: I visualized the warts gently peeling off and visualized nice, smooth, pre-wart skin constantly.
Couple of drops of tto on a q-tip swabbed on the area. Then I dunked a tampon in ACV and stuck it between my cheeks (sorry for the details) and let it hang out for about five hours. It wasn't terribly painful the first day (I actually went to a party/house show and wasn't bothered much), but when I went to switch the tampon for a new one, it stung like CRAZY. I have a decently high threshold for pain, and I couldn't hang with it. I slept ACV-free that night. Next day, I went to inspect, and all the little warts had turned black and a couple of them had wiped off. Success! I was so happy and elated it was starting to work. Then, more tto swabbed and some toilet paper soaked in ACV applied to the area. Day two was HORRIBLE for stinging. Very painful, I couldn't leave it on for as long as I wanted, probably three or four hours. Day three: at first inspection, I couldn't see many warts (just one small one, but I didn't look that hard), so I dabbed some tto and went to work. 10.5 hours later, all warts but one had disappeared. The skin surrounding the area was black and scaly-looking (not to mention extremely tender and burny-feeling, also a tiny bit of blood from two areas), so I decided to forego the ACV for now, but I am dabbing some tto on the area every now and again.
I'm sorry this is so long, but I haven't spoken to anyone about this. This forum has helped me out immensely, your guys' stories gave me hope in a very bleak, desperate and lonely time.
I truly feel that the success is mainly due to my positive visualization of successful results. If you stay positive and see your genitals as beautiful and blemish-free as they were before the warts, it'll happen! Keep hope alive! Constantly visualize positive results. Your mind is your greatest weapon. Good luck everyone.
So, like all of us, I had a gw outbreak.
Just a heads up, I tried the freezing method at the MD office, the Freeze-Off from Dr. Scholls and a mixture of TTO and Castor Oil before trying ACV. After a couple hours of having the ACV on my very tiny warts I was able to pull them off without much pain or bleeding. I hope to stay wart-free but will choose the ACV method again should any reappear. Should have tried this in the first place! Thanks to all who have submitted their remedies!
I tried the ACV but could not stand the burning pain it causes so I tried a different remedy that has also good reviews, Tea Tree Oil. I place cotton soaked in TTO and tape it to the area with warts and leave it overnight. You'll start to see it turn white and peel after 2-4 days. Once it has peeled continue apply cotton with TTO this time with a few drops of vitamin E to continue burning any residue of the warts but in a gentler way since the peeled skin is very sensitive. I noticed that after each peel the warts are getting fewer and thinner. It takes longer though a week and a half before you see the warts disappear. Once the peeled skin reveals no more warts apply cotton soaked with vitamin e to help it heal and prevent scarring. Remember even if the skin appears almost smooth once the peeled skin is revealed, if you still feel that itching/burning feel that is unique to genital warts, redo the TTO+vitamin e just for an additional peel. TTO smells great too! Hope this helps...
Dear all, I have had the issue of genital warts for a year now. I have tried the ACV treatment but my skin was very sensitive and I couldn't use it continuously. Lately I was preparing my master thesis and had really long night and had to boost my energy by energy drinks. I used RED BULL for two nights in a row and after some 3 days some of my warts disappeared and some of them reduced to a notable size. I did not realize what was going on until I recalled an article about energy drinks effects on warts. I now drink a Red bull every 3 or 4 days since I don't think if drinking too much would have greater effects. I am so pleased to have determined its effect and I hope my post can help other people as well
From what I've seen and heard, ACV, Oxyfend and Wartamine are by far the best genital warts treatments available. There are too many salesmen and promo people pushing Wartrol and other brands which seriously takes away their credibility. Read what's on the websites, it makes a big difference to choose a treatment from a company that actually UNDERSTANDS how frustrating genital warts can be.
Hi all. Im a 33y/o male who rarely used protection during my teens and early 20s. I get tested regularly and in by my late 20's I changed my sexual behavior by using condoms and becoming monogamous. I have never had an STI and even though I found a wart on my shaft 2 weeks ago, I still feel pretty lucky to have maintained a relatively clean bill of health.
I used ACV on a wart a bit bigger than the tip of a ballpoint pin. Withing 2 days it was completely black and at this point I think it was scabbed over but I couldnt tell so I continued the ACV. I would soak a cotton ball in ACV and tape it to my shaft and wear it more or less all day. By the 3rd day the burning had increased and I could not bear even a few seconds. As it turns out, I over did it with the vinegar. On the fourth day the skin around the wart had turned black as well, scabbed over. I took a bath that night after 15 minutes or so all the black scab came off on its own. The skin beneath was very tender and pink and where the wart was there was a little white circle.
At first I thought this was still the wart but by morning it had turned into a scab. The scab lasted 3 more days and is now gone.
I think the next time I need to do this I will use a moleskin patch to place around the wart thus protecting the noninfected issue and then apply the ACV.
I also purchased a tube of OxyFend just to have in the future. I am not sure about this product as it is totally new and take 3 weeks to ship if you order it from the US.
If I have another outbreak I will post the results with the oxyfend if no one has at that point. Most of the OxyFend posts sound like sales reps IMO
After throwing my money at Veregen (which seriously is overpriced and overated) I've finally found a genital warts treatment that FINALLY works. I've been using Oxyfend for the past two weeks now and all I can say is so relieving to find a trustworthy product. It may not work for everyone but it does for me and I can actually afford it.
ACV isn't bad but I cannot stand the smell, it's gross and kinda sticks to the inside of my nose so I end up smelling it for a couple of hours afterwards.
I just removed one of two stubborn genital warts using only apple cider vinegar. I applied acv full strength overnight for three nights in row. The wart will turn black and appear like a scab. It only took three applications and the wart fell off today went I checked the progress. Caution, the acv will burn the surrounding skin. You will have to limit the area being treated to minimize burning. The burned skin also fell off with the wart. Once the wart has reached the scabbed stage, you don't need to apply acv. Good luck, now I can return to normal and not be worried about my warts.
THIS IS MY FIRST OUTBREAK. I KNEW I HAD HPV INFECTIONS IN THE PAST BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS. I HAD 2 ONE A SMALL TAG AND THE OTHER A BIT LARGER I DID NOT KNOW THEY WERE THERE UNTIL ONE STARTED TO BLEED. AFTER READING SOME NOF THESE POST ACROSS SOME ONE WHO USED PHDOWN WELL IT WORKS BUT I HAD TO TEEK IT TO WORK FOR ME MY LARGE TAG FELL OFF AFTER DAY 2 APPLICATION AND IS GONE AND MY SMALL ONE IS ALMOST GONE. SO HERE IT IS SMALL BOTTLE OF PHDOWN QTIPS AND COTTON BALL TEA TREE OIL 100% PEROXIDE AND BORIC ACID 10% CREAM. CLEAN THE AREA FIRST DEPENDING ON HOW LARGE EITHER COTTON BALL OR QTIP SOAK PH DOWN APPLY TO AFFECTED AREA YOU WILL FEEL A BURN OR SLIGHT TINGLE LET IT SIT FOR 1/2 HR TO 45 MINUTES RINSE WITH WATER THEN DO A RINSE WITH PEROXIDE DRY AREA APPLY BORIC ACID CREAM AND TEA TREE OIL ( BORIC ACID CREAM AND TEA TREE OILS ARE ANTISEPTICS) AS WELL AS BORIC ACID CREAM IS A WEAK ACID SON IT WON'T DESRTROY THE SKIN IT WILL ALSO SLOWLY KILL THE WART. APPLY BORIC ACID CREAM AND TEA TREE OIL 2 TO THREE TIMES OR AS YOU USE THE RESTROOM. APPLY PH DOWN ONCE A DAY I SUGGEST DOING THIS BEFORE YOU GO TO BED. MY LARGE TAG PULLED OFF NO PAIN NO BLOOD CONTINUE PROCESS UNTIL COMPLETELY GONE. I STILL HAVE A SMALL TAG WHICH IS ALMOST GONE BUT THIS WORKS. OH ALSO KEEP UP ON VITAMINS TO BULSTER IMMUNE SYSTEM I THINK STRESS AND A BAD COLD IS WHY I RECVD MY FIRST OUT BREAK. GOOD LUCK THANK GOD FOR THIS WEBSITE IT HAS GIVEN ME SUPPORT AND I AM LESS EMBARASSED KNOWING I AM NOT ALONE SUFFERING BY MYSELF
My cousin had genital warts last year. And at first, we don't have any idea how we can solve or treat her genital warts. We went to our city herbal doctor and asked for any home remedies/natural treatment for my cousin's case. Our herbal doctor recommends my cousin to try the Tea Tree Oil. Well, at first it's okay but after 2-3 weeks, my cousin started to complain because her infected skin of genital warts were getting itchy and starting to get more redness. Apparently on that day, my auntie visited us and also to check my cousin's condition. When she knew about what happen on my cousin, she immediately went home and get the cream called 'Zerowarts Oxyfend'. We don't have any option but to try it. Since our auntie assured us the effectiveness of this cream on treating genital warts. We get surprise, how fast and effective this Oxyfend cream is. For about 6 days, my cousin's genital warts gone totally and looks the skin were not suffered with a serious illness. Great Oxyfend Cream!
