ACV Removes Molluscum Contagiosum (Water Warts)

French translation

My 7 year old daughter had Molluscum Contagiosum on her stomach for a year and a half and over the last six months they began to spread to her upper thighs.

These wart like bumps are very hardy and hard to get rid of. We tried burning them off but 4 appointments later we still had no success.

My doctor then tried another remedy on her stomach only which caused my daughters skin to swell up into big puss filled boils. I was so upset I felt like we were making the situation worse when I fortunately found a site that recommending ACV.

I immediately purchased some ACV and put it on my daughters legs, I soaked some cloth bandages, cut them to size and covered them with Band-Aids.

I did this for several nights leaving the Band-Aids on for the day. Three weeks later and my daughters legs were clear of the molluscum.

She had been self conscious about her stomach and legs all summer long, I wish we would have found this all natural cure earlier.

Full strength or diluted ACV
by: Anonymous

The information is very helpful; however, some sites state that full strength ACV can be harmful to sensitive skin and it should be diluted.

My son is only 2 1/2 years old so I'm concerned.

Should it be diluted before putting it on his arm?

It works using apple cider vinegar
by: Anonymous

I wish I could show you pictures of the before and after , after one and a half weeks later.

We went to the docs as one was infected and they said don't touch it, they will go away on their own and could take up to 18 months.

A few weeks later another one arrived, 8 in total.
The pain my daughter was in was horrible to see and she's in s swimming club so as a mother I knew I had to do something.

I googled water warts and this treatment came up.

We did try using the pads with a bandage but my daughter felt conscious, so I just dabbed each one with a cotton bud 4 times daily.

They will take 3 days to get hit then they will go white, then back, then start to scab. Try it, this stuff is amazing.

They have now gone purple as it's the bruising so hopefully in another week they would have gone totally .
Go to Holland and Barrett and buy BRAGG APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!

I basically diagnosed myself at home after I discovered several little bumps appearing.

After some intense research, I ran across the ACV remedy about 3 1/2 weeks later. The moment I put ACV on the affected area, it turned puffy white but it burned so bad.

I already feel better.

Thank you Vinegar for fighting Molluscum Contagiosum
by: Anonymous

(Translated from French)

My 3 year old daughter had caught molluscum contagiosum in the swimming pool.

Discouraged by many alarmist comments, I continued to look for painless solutions for her, Molutrex burned her and she cried and ran away as soon as she saw the medicine.

I came across this site and I tried apple cider vinegar.

Miracle, in 15 days the bumps were all gone. My daughter gradually found her baby's bottom, all for $1.50 a bottle!

Thank you, thank you!

Just started with ACV
by: Anonymous

My son has had them since he was 4, he's almost 7 now.

The doctor kept saying "don't worry they'll go away on their own." Well, yeah they do but then they also come back more plentiful than before.

I did not want to have them frozen off or burned or cut, and at my wits end with these warts, I am trying ACV. We just started last night, and already there are signs of improvement!

I talked with my son to let him know that we're going to try this and it may or may not work. We don't want to get our hopes up, but after just one treatment, it's hard to not get excited. It's hard to believe that after 3 years of dealing with these little suckers, that something as simple and easy as this would work!!

Why can't doctors tell you about alternative methods you could try at home? And so far after doing the bath soak and taped on cotton balls, there has been no complaints of any discomfort.

I am staying cautiously optimistic, but I wish I had known about this years ago.
