i have found a REAL remedy:
Listen, I have had GW for like 2 years, after playing around with them trying all kinds of different remedies I found a REAL one that works. It hurts a little bit, but its worth it and they go away in like 2 days.
1. take a pin and light it with with a lighter for 20-30 seconds. put it directly in the middle of the wart and hold it there for 10-15 seconds. you dont have to insert it but just hold it on the tom really tight. it will scab and fall of in 2 days. no doctor, no mess, no costs. and it REALLY works.
i have found a REAL remedy:
First off, I want to make it clear that the one thing no one seems to mention is that while these remedies may work to get rid of the wart(s), the virus that caused it is still there and therefore you are still able to transmit this to another partner, so USE PROTETCION. Don't knowingly give someone the same shame you once had simply because you do not currently have a 'breakout'.
Secondly, my approach at tackling this was far more barbaric thatn anything I've read here. I'm a male and I first realized I'd gotten this crap gift of warts when I was 20 years old. That was almost 15 years ago and there was no internet to look up home remedies, so my answer, don't cringe, nail clippers. Pain and a LOT of blood and naturally, it came back right away. But, being relentless, I used the nail clippers again, and again, and again, and wouldn't you know, after a few times it never came back. Now that it is 2010, I suggest using a method that is less brutish and save yourself some pain.
i had genital warts that were all over n in small clusters,and as everyone was too embarrassed to go to the doctor.I decided to get online n see if there was a remedy before gathering guts to head to the doctor.I found the apple cider article i was reluctant but didn't have any option but to try it.All i have to say is that m wart free n my confidence is back.....this truly works
hope this helps.. I did much research on this subject Im 30 yrs old and have been with my girlfriend for 5 yrs. I was with about 20 women my whole life mostely with condoms but not all so to say who gave them to me is IMPOSSIBLE but To my surprise I found out I have genital warts I am active eat pretty well. I know a little about viruses in that you cannot cure it or get it out of your system as with any virus, all you can do is kick it in the butt. FIRST.. The Immune syste.. eat right and excercise, Sit in a sauna as much as possible for as long as safetly possible. Also if you have any mercury (medal) in your mouth you are poising yourself. When you have the money have your filings changed out. SUPPLEMENTS,, Vitamin D new research shows immune system needs D to activate T cells in the immune system with out D. the virus can go forever without even realizing it has a problem. Mainly thats why you grow warts. (body doesnt think theres a problem.) I also do elderberry mainly thats just because everone else says it works. Also take my multivitamins C,D use liquid Vitmain E on the skin OK The WART like I said your immune system does not know there is a problem so you have to draw attention to that area by damaging the skin and in turn the immune system will locate the wart and fix that as well. Most Wart MEDS have some sort of fancy acid mix to attack the tissue and boost immune response. You can do this on your own but home remedies you have to be VERY CAREFUL and you only have one try or else you will keep damanging the the same skin over and over until you are in great deal of pain and takes weeks to heal. Apply ACV in a small amount to the area. leave on for 8-10 hours. Then remove wait 16 hrs. As the skin will react to the acid in the ACV apply vitamin E to the area to prevent scarring and encourage growth of new skin as the body reacts to the irrated skin the skin will die along with the wart tissue turing black and falling off.
I am a 22 year old female who got diagnosed with genital warts about 6 months ago. There was only 2 or 3 and they were pretty flat. My doctor prescribed Aldara and told me that would fix everything. SO WRONG! Not only did it not get rid of the warts, but they multiplied and got MUCH bigger. I came to this site and tried the apple cider vinegar remedy. It worked on the small ones. Then I tried vitamin C. THEY ARE GONE!!! What you do is take a vitamin C tablet and crush it into a powder then add just enough water to make it a paste (mine was similar to the consistency of spackle). Smear it on the warts, JUST THE WARTS, not the surrounding skin (serious yowzers!) and put a bandaid on top of it (if possible, or just cover it with gauze or something so it doesn't get anywhere too important haha). Leave that on overnight. I only had to do 1 night of treatment for each wart and then scrubbed it in the morning and it fell off. EVERY SINGLE ONE! This does hurt a bit, wayyy more than ACV but only takes 1 time. Also, boosting your immune system helps so step up those vitamins. Best of luck everyone =)
Hey, I'm a 26 year old female who has had genital warts I believe for almost a year, I've never went to the doctor because of embarrassment, I made an apt two weeks ago becuz I'm soo sick of havin them, I came to this site moments after thinkin maybe ill a lil more about it.. I'm sure lots can't believe home remedy s work, THEY DO!! Maybe not forever, but I started to put apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball n taped it to the wart that has been there the longest n also was the biggest, it stings a lil..I left it on for a few hrs n took it off, the wart started to turn black just like this site said it would, I freaked!! But repeated the process for four days, today I went to the bathroom, when I wiped the wart came off! I hope this helps someone like me I'm not really a believer of this stuff but I promise u this works! Good luck!
Well this is my first time dealing with this kind of situation but I have done a lot of research and tests on my self to conclude that ACV DOES WORK!! I'm only 22 years old and contracted Genital Warts from unprotected sex! So stupied.. You live and you learn but sometimes to late. Im dealing with it the best I can and its working out. One poped out and then another and another and another. Got bigger and bigger. So I went to a STD specialist and he confirmed it was GW's. I have insurance and he recomended I do laser surgey on it. Which f***kin Hurts. It came back. So I went online and did research for a month. Long story short this is what worked amazingly for me! Went to the store and bought ACV (heinz) because it was one of the best one's i used and i went through a couple of test runs. Its got alot of pulp from the apple and i guess its pretty pure 5% acidic. Anyways I then took a bounty paper towel and folded it 1 to 1 1/2 inch over and over about 5 to 6 times getting it thick. soaked it in ACV and wrapped it around my shaft. Put some medical paper tape you can buy at CVS around it so that it wont fall off. I did this be4 i went to bed best time to do it. Woke up and those GW's where white and a small brown spot, so i knew something was working =). Anyways this stuff BURNS so be carefull and i read alot of people do get over burned but I think the first night it should be applied heavy on the GW's. Next day wake up and take a nice long WARM bath with Epson Salt, I poured half the carton in the water and stood in the bath for a good Hour! Next do the same but durring the day for a good 5 to 6 hrs. Remember everyone body is diff so take a look at it sometimes you dont want to burn your healthy skin which if you do will be okay, just hurts untill it heals. Then at night take another warm bath with EPSON Salt. Go sleep and dont out any more ACV. wake up next morning and put some ACV on for another 3 to 4 Hrs wrapped (becarefull if it is burning the skin leave it on for a hr or 2) You will see that the GW's are brownish / black with white and the healthy burned skin was just pure white and a lil possy looking lessions. Now later on take another bath with some Epson Salt again ( I poured some next to my shaft close by so it can absorb it more). Now that night when your about to go sleep take a condom put it on right and sleep with it till morning. I know it sounds stupid but it worked for me. I;m guessing because there is no air for the GW's to breath and it made a hudge difference for me. plus its feels lubricated so it does not hurt. I'm from NYC so I used the free ones from the clinic (NYC condom - natural rubber latex and it had some lube to it like most condoms do). Now next day wake up and take another bath with Epson Salt (warm bath) and you should be scabbing (it came right off in the water and looked great like nothing there!) I go to the GYM and eat right and take my vitamins and I have been Genital Wart free for over 8 months! Try it I HOPE IT WORKS FOR EVERY1. Good Luck to EVERY1.
I am a female and have had genital warts for about half a year now. They are smaller now, so I want to stop them before they get out of control. I have noticed them growing rapidly and I know on this course they may be hard to handle soon. I went on this site and did the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment that was recommended. After the first treatment of about 30 mins, I noticed the warts already reducing in size. I only did it for about 30 mins because it was burning and some severe irritation afterward that lasted around the area. It was painful to urinate. I noticed when I diluted the solution with water, it was a lot better. It may take a little longer, but the burning and irritation afterward was minimal. Here is what I did:
1. Clean area and hands with mild soap.
2. Soak a cotton face pad in 50/50 ACV and water, ring out any excess.
3. Put the soaked pad between you labia minoris (or wherever the warts are located)
4. Put a thin maxi pad in your panties for any excess.
5. Sleep with this overnight.
6. Remove and wash area with mild soap (like Summers Eve) in the morning.
I have noticed a pungent smell from this so I would not recommend doing it unless you know you can wash afterward. You dont want everyone wondering why you smell like vinegar. I also dont recommend having sex during this time because of the irritation.
I have been doing this for about 3 nights now and have noticed major improvement and Im completely satisfied. My warts did not become black, but reduced in size and felt like little rough bumps on my skin. My skin is a little inflamed though. I am going to do the ACV soak for one more night, and then apply some Vitamn E oil and cold compresses at night to help reduce the irritation and heal the area. This should help. Then depending on any re occurrences, I will repeat as needed. I see a positive future now.
Other people have mentioned Apple cider vinegar and I just wanted to relay my experience which got rid of the warts on application.
1. Using a cotton bud, apply a small amount of Vaseline around the wart to protect the skin.
2. Dip a clean cotton bud into small amount of ACV and then apply this to the wart using a gentle, but firm, back and fort, rubbing action.
3. Repeat using a second clean cotton bud. You will notice the wart turns white, and then you are likely to see some blood. Do not be alarmed at this stage - the blood is a sign that the wart is being dislodged. Wipe the blood away with a tissue and continue.
4. Having repeated this using about 4/5 clean, cotton buds dipped in ACV, within about 10 minutes, or less the wart will fall away from the skin.
5. Wipe the area clean with a tissue, apply some Savlon to help the skin heal.
6. Skin in the genital area takes longer to heal than other parts of the body because it is damp and warm, but within a week you should be back to normal.
7. Avoid sex until the area has fully healed.
I've been suffering from genital warts for a few months now, and due to the stress of having them they multiply and grow which only stresses you out more. its a horrible cycle that I thought would never end. I had a doctor attempt to freeze them off but it was extremely painful and cost more than I was hoping to spend. also it took more than one treatment to complete and each session cost me money and down time. I couldn't do anything because I was hurting so badly from the treatment. I found out about Apple Cider Vinegar treatments and decided to give it a shot. it is working so well so far. I'm so releaved that the warts are slowly going away. its like a huge weight being lifted from me. I've been taking vitimans to boost my immune system as well, because my immune system is very poor and I'm constantly sick and being put on meds. vitiman D and E, C and lots of garlic are the ones I pop daily at least 2 times a day on a full stomach. exercise is good too. anything you can do to keep your body healthy. I really hope this helps others struggling with the same problem, because I thought (being the melodramatic girl that I am) my life was over. being so young and having to live with this the rest of my life is tough but at least now I know how to work through it. I wish the best for you all. good luck. :)
