My stepdaughter has warts at the nail-bed of her fingers.

I have been treating them with the Apple Cider Vinegar for 4 days now. They are going away.  She has had the warts for about a year now.

When we take her back to her mother on New Years Day she will be wart free.

She now knows how to treat them should she get more.

I started out with one wart on my middle left finger, on the middle knuckle. So you can imagine how embarrassing it was for a left handed person to write in classes or serve food in my workplace.

That was two years ago. Today, I have 6 all on my left hand. I heard of this remedy out of the blue from Google.

I am SO glad I spent the $4! I read all the testimonials and thought I'd try it for myself.

What I thought was going to be a companion of mine for the rest of my life is now GONE! I cannot believe it! After 6 days, I snipped at it with some nail clippers and sure enough, it just came out.

The first few days were absolutely painful. But not as painful as some other things I've tried (that failed).

Thank you for posting this site! Now, on to killing the other 5!

WOW - apple cider vinegar killed my planters wart in less than one week of treatment!

I have had this huge terribly painful planters wart for almost a year and have tried every over the counter treatment, freeze kit, duct tape, you name it.  Nothing worked...until I found this site.

I had shaved the dead skin down to expose all of the black 'roots' each night to make sure the ACV could get to the source.  I taped an ACV soaked cotton ball on my foot each night with a band-aid and removed it each AM.

I have to admit, the throbbing did wake me up during my sleep, but I left it on b/c I knew it was working. After about 5 days, the wart was completely black and I could put pressure on it and not scream in agony!

Woohoo, I am going to celebrate today!

Thank you!!

I had a massive wart on my left index finger right near the nail.

After 4 years of treatment including the expensive 'aldara' treatment I tried ACV.

It fell off in the space of a week and left a massive hole which closed up after a while, especially after many trips to the beach.

Its been gone for two years now.
I have a cluster on my right ring finger which I've attacked with ACV. It has gone all white and puffy and I'll keep putting the ACV on until it is completely gone.


Everything else doesn't work, believe me I've tried!

I began using this treatment out of mere desperation.

I have had this darn thing on my hand for two years now. Today, it has spread to be 6 HUGE warts all on my left hand. Which is lovely since I am left handed and use it a lot. People eventually do question a million band aides in the same spot after 2 years.

I found this site by accident, looking for home remedies other than the duct tape, tea tree oil (which I turned out to be allergic to) or banana peels.

Yesterday was day one for me. Is it normal for my finger to be completely pruned up and yellow? They have turned black in the middle which I assume is natural, but they are starting to sting like crazy. I have been trying to suck it up because this does not hurt anymore than some of the other thing I have tried, but this pain is constant.

I am not giving up, I do not want these nasty things to be my life long companions, I am getting rid of them once and for all. I trust this ACV will work.

About 2 years ago I started to have pain in the ball of my right foot. I had just bought a pair of shoes with a slight heel and thought that the pressure of the changed angle was causing this pain. I usually wear flat shoes. The pain worsened over time, even though I wore my usual shoes. The ball of the foot felt like water was filling it, it looked like that as well. Puffy and red, leaving an indentation when I pressed a finger into it. No other indication that I might have a plantar wart. Perfectly undisturbed skin. The pain was unbearable at times, I was not able to walk when I wanted to.

But after searching out this symptom on the net, I concluded that I must have a plantar wart, I was about 80% sure. So I bought the salicylic acid discs, followed the instructions but used 3 of those discs in a circle because this thing felt big and I could not quite locate the spot. I went at it for about 2 month. I still was not quite sure that this was a wart, but I got deeper and deeper into the thick layer of skin. I usually walk barefoot and have rather thick skin on my feet. So the crater was getting deeper, but no sign of dark specks (the little blood vessels of a wart).

Then I read these testimonials about using the ACV, I had nothing to lose but this terrible pain. So I took a plastic zip lock bag (easy to dispose afterwards) and filled it with a cup of the ACV (which I use to make my mayonnaise -- haha), let my foot soak in it for about an hour. The skin got all yellow and puffed and the layers of skin showed up clearly around the crater, like an excavation in a geological dig. And 20 minutes later it hit. The pain was incredible. I am tough, I have a lot of pain from kidney stones and migraines, but this was worse. The pain brought me to my knees, I put a cloth in my mouth to bite down on it so my screams would not disturb the neighberhood. The pain lasted for about 3 hours, the double dose of extra strength Tylenol finally started to work, or maybe just the normal ebbing of pain, I do not know.

I looked at the crater again, and sure enough, there on the bottom sat what looked like a glossy pale grey pearl. It had little black specks in it, and looking at it with a magnifying glass, I saw fine blood vessels all through this thing. Now I was sure that this was a wart deep inside the skin. I put some clove oil on it to relieve some of the soreness, then filled the crater with emu oil to calm all of it. Bandaged it all up and left it so for a day. I kept reading to make sure all this was what was supposed to happen.

Then, after taking off the bandage, I saw the black edges and speckles of this pearl. It looked promising. I now soaked a little cotton wad in the ACV, bandaged it tightly into the crater and waited for the pain. Sure enough, 20 minutes later it hit again, even though I had taken double dose of Tylenol 2 hours before. I left this on for about two hours, swallowing down my tears. Took it off and more black stipples and edges were there.

I used the clove oil and after another two hours dared myself again with the ACV. The pain that followed was much milder and I was able to leave it on for 3 hours. Now the wart looked silver grey with the dark spots and the black edges. It had pushed itself up in the crater and was level with the surrounding skin. I repeated with the ACV soaked cotton bit and the pain hit again big time. So I took it off and covered the wart and surrounding skin with anti biotic ointment that also has pain relief in it and bandaged it. I did not attempt it again, the pain was just too bad. People who do not get this pain are very lucky indeed.

Next morning the wart had turned dark red, like a scab. The ball of the foot was very tender, so I just put clove oil on it, bandaged it and wrote this report. I hope that it is all over soon. I will let you know.

It is incredibly helpful to read all these posts, for we are all lay people with little knowledge of how this process is supposed to work. It is scary. But reading on so many sites how the engagement of professionals has not done much good, there is hardly a choice left but to attack this problem by oneself. I cross my fingers now∑

I also cleaned and soaked the insides of my shoes with the ACV to make sure that I will not re-infect myself. I did not want to throw them away -- Uschie

My husband paid $$$$ over several years to get rid of his warts, trying all medical methods.
In the end, we're still waiting to see if his surgery paid off.

Me, just over one week with ACV, at night only, and I could squeeze out the plug and get rid of the rest of the black areas using my nails.

Will use ACV with plaster for another week, just in case, but I have a small neat hole - and it cost at total of $3 all told - and there are plasters left.

I am grateful.

I have been using ACV for a week now. I am very happy with the progress that I am getting.

The wart is on my toe, on the inside by my baby toe. It's between my toes and wraps around to the bottom of my foot. I couldn't walk for two days.

After using ACV, I was able to walk. I noticed on days 4 and 5 some of the skin was coming off when I removed the cotton ball and medical tape.
(Be careful with the ACV, I got a burn on my baby toe.)

It has been one week and progress is still happening.

I want to thank everyone for their help and encouragement.
I'm still hopeful and greatful for ACV and everyone's comments.

I have no idea how or why this works, but it's amazing. Apple Cider Vinegar is kryptonite to warts.

I had 3 recurring plantar warts.

For best results, start with Compound W and eliminate the top layers of skin and get closer to the wart.

The ACV hurt like hell because one of my warts was HUGE on the side of my small toe.  In spite of the pain, there isn't a drop of blood.

I'm only 3 days in and the warts have fallen off and the pain has subsided.

I'm still attacking it for a few more days for the coup-de-grace.  Don't bother with any other method of wart removal.

At the beginning of her pregnancy, my wife got 5 new plantar warts.

The warts grew steadily so that, 3 weeks before giving birth, she could hardly walk.

It was impossible to treat the warts during the pregnancy and during breastfeeding because all medication was prohibited during those periods.

Then, we found your site and your recommendations.

My wife followed the method for one wart, just to see… Then she followed the method for all the warts.

Within 5 weeks, all the warts had disappeared!

It has now been 3 months that the warts have all gone.
A bad memory that could have been shortened if we had found your site sooner…

I successfully removed a wart on my thumb and two monster plantar warts on my foot using Apple Cider Vinegar.

I had tried using EVERY pharmaceutical product but nothing worked like ACV did.

It really does work but you have to keep at it. The wart will turn black and fall off/break apart and you will be left with a hole but you must continue using ACV for a few days after to ensure the wart is completely gone.

Don't be afraid to soak your foot in a 50/50 solution of water and ACV, it also works just as well to remove warts.

Good luck and I promise it will work for you :)

Greatest Wart Treatment Ever!

I have 3 Warts on my hand. I did this for about a week before I had an appointment with the doctor to get these things frozen off.

He told me there was no reason to freeze the warts because, guess what? THEY WERE DYING! But I told him that the pain was nearly unbearable, so he prescribed Vicodin!

Slept like a rock while my warts finally died off!

My doctor was shocked that this simple home remedy worked better in 1 week with a $2 bottle of ACV than the 6 months of Aldara Cream at $55/application!

Late last week, I started this method for a wart on my upper right arm.

After about 3 days, the wart was black and had shrunk down level with the skin, looking like a normal scab from a scrape or gouge.  However, the ACV also "burned" the skin around the wart, so now I have a big scab on the skin outside the wart itself.

That probably isn't reported more often because of the location - mine was on the inside of my upper arm, where there's lots of hair, and I couldn't use the traditional "band-aid" method.

Instead, I had to hold the ACV cotton ball in place with an Ace bandage that was pretty tight.  I think it didn't breathe as well as it should have and kept the ACV in longer contact with healthy skin than the band-aid method would have.

So - I'm not using ACV right now, waiting for the skin around it to heal and for the scab that's there to fall off, then I'll restart using some other method for holding the cotton ball in place overnight.

Bought some ACV and molested a cotton ball for the small bits of cotton to try it on a wart on my finger.

First morning the wart looked White after removing the band-aid. As I ride a motorcycle and didn't want any wart stuff in my gloves, I doused another snippet of cotton, put it in place and applied the band-aid. Again, upon removing, it looked white.

It never turned black. But today when I took off the band-aid after work, the wart came off with the cotton and a small round bit of reddish/pinkish new skin could be seen in its place. I'll keep at it for a few days yet, just to make sure.

Now to attack my other warts. Right on!

I'm on week 2 of the treatment for 5 plantar warts on the heel of my foot.

I was very diligent about sticking to the treatment even though I had 4 days of almost unbearable pain and was limping around.  Ibuprofen and liquor helped but I'm happy to say that the pain did weaken on the 5th day.

I would soak in ACV when I would get home from work, apply the cotton from Q-tips soaked in the ACV and then tape with sports tape and then duct tape and then wear a sock all night.

I never had horrible pain while sleeping but in the morning when the blood would rush to my foot, it would throb and burn - pretty intensely.  I would take off the tape and shower - soaking my foot in warm water and then re-apply the ACV/Cotton and tape.  It was difficult to walk and drive - I really wish I had an automatic transmission during this time!

I'm so happy to report that this morning, after soaking my foot in warm water for about 10 minutes, all of the warts came off with a soft emory board!  I still have a slightly puffy white circle around where the wart was and I'm continuing the treatment for a few more days.  I think I can start doing it only at night now and I'm very confident it will take a few more days for the skin to be smooth and I'm hoping the signs of the warts will be gone soon so I can move on with my life.

I've had these for about 3 years and like others, have tried every OTC treatment, as well as freezing from my general doctor and treatment from a podiatrist.

This has been a painful treatment but it has been totally worth it.  Thanks to all of you for posting your experiences and advice.  I would read these testimonials daily to give me hope and keep me motivated to keep up with the treatment.  It really does work!!

I have found the cure for these disgusting warts on my fingers.

I have a cluster on my thumb pad, like 5 of them and 2 nights ago I started this treatment.

First I cut it back as far as I could stand it and then I put the cotton ball soaked with ACV and wrapped it up, went to bed and about 3 o'clock I woke up and man! it was hurting like crazy.

Same thing last night and the pain is intense but guess what??? They are black and yucky which is a good thing, the little suckers are dying, lol.

I have been reading these testimonials daily to stay focused and positive.

I have been soaking my foot in ACV daily for about 30 minutes and then applying the ACV to the plantar wart's, covering with gauze soaked in ACV and then duct tape.

After the first night, I saw a big difference - the deep warts that were usually not that visible (from my daily scraping and cutting for almost 3 years now) turned dark brown/black - I guess the "roots."  I was thrilled that I was able to use a nail file to scrape away the 2 smaller ones - one is basically gone but there's still a small dark spot in the other.

The 2 larger ones are taking longer and I am in moderate to severe pain!  I was worried that perhaps I was doing something wrong b/c the pain didn't start until about 4 days after treatment.

I can endure pretty high levels of pain but this is crazy bad! Is this normal?  I'm sticking with it because of all these testimonials but I'm on day 3 of hardly being able to walk in hopes that it's part of the process.

I read from some testimonials to just continue the treatment even with the pain but I'm not sure how much longer I can endure this if it doesn't start to ease up.  Any advice?

Thanks to all of you - these testimonials have been my daily support system in dealing with this.  I want to be a success story too!

I can't believe I didn't try this out sooner!

I read a lot of these testimonials some time ago, and then just never got around to it.

Big Mistake,  though I've gotten used to their ugly presence: I've had a bad one on  my left thumb for a few years and last year it spread further towards my wrist, a seed wart I guess the big ol thang is called, anyway, I bag balmed all around that hombre and then soaked the cotton ball, squeezed out excess, and placed it carefully in place, wrapping it up with 5 band aids (all I had at the time).

The next night I did this again, and the last two weeks it has been in steady, dramatic retreat! Hoooee!So, tonight, it was full-on war on every single one of the buggers! Right now they're saying  "Holy Crow! weeze ALLLLLL been attacked!" ...and I am hoping will die slow horrible deaths,like the big one after a couple more times (yes, that one hurt for a bit, it was thick and calloused and is now at skin level...)

I guess grandmas out there knew this as common knowledge.

I have about the same story that everyone on here does.

I've got what's called a mosaic planters wart (many of them clustered together) on the heel of my left foot.  I've tried  OTC treatments, several doctors, and even duct tape and have really worked hard to stay on top of this condition over the last SIX YEARS only to have these warts spread and multiply.  Talk about frustrating!

I went to a doctor again this last Tuesday and she told me to try one more cream.  If this didn't work we'd have to try surgery which may leave me with permanent pain when walking for the rest of my life.  That's not an acceptable option for me, so I turned to the net and found this ACV treatment info just yesterday and tried it last night.

I woke up at about 3:00 am with pain in my heel from the warts interacting with the ACV.  It felt like little needles giving me multiple shots through thick skin.  Uncomfortable, but not unbearable.  The skin was swollen this morning (like skin gets when it's wet for way too long ... looks like a raisin), but I'm glad to report that already a few of the warts are turning black.  From all that I've read, that's a great thing as it means the warts are dying.  YAY!  It was painful to walk on this morning too, but much better this afternoon as it's calmed down and very manageable overall.  I was encouraged to note also that it was just the infected areas that hurt and not the healthy skin around the warts.

I've read that this will be painful for the next few nights and then it will subside.  I say, bring it on.  I'm VERY hopeful that this treatment will work from the results I'm seeing already.  Thanks to you all for posting your experiences here.  Your "Intel" has been most helpful!  I will be taking some Vicodin tonight so I can sleep as I know this will hurt again, but it's worth it.  I really think this is going to do the trick!  :D

Update: Oct 27, 2009

First off, I have a question for apple-cider-vinegar-benefits:

It's been 5 days of applying the vinegar at night (which I know takes longer - two weeks or so, right?).  I have a mosaic wart on my heel (as noted before) and most of them have turned black, which I have read is good.  I've also read that various kinds of warts fall off, but my wart is flush with with the skin on my heel (or embedded) ... so how do I get them out once they've died completely?  What will happen next, or rather, what should I be looking for?  How will I know when they're dead and should stop using the ACV?  I'm just not sure what to look for now that they're black or what to do to get them out.  Thank you!  (I guess that was a bit more than 1 question).  :)

Next, I do want to let anyone reading this know what my progress is after 5 days of night time treatment.  The warts all seem to be turning black now in varying degrees.

After the first night the tenderness and pain was gone.  I used a callous remover (razor of sorts) to remove the top layer of dead skin on days 2 and 5.

Last night (day 5) was painful again and I woke up during the night.  Today the area is very "angry" (tender and hard to walk on ... feel like pebbles are embedded in my feet).

I think I'll just keep up the ACV treatment and not remove any more dead skin for at least a week.

That's it for now.  I'll be back in a week or two to update my progress with you all.  :)

I can't believe this worked!!!

I have had this one plantar wart on the bottom of my toe for over 2 years now and have tried everything to get rid of it.

It even started to grow another one under my big toe. It was so disgusting I did everything to try and combat them (freezing, at home kits...I even tried to cut them out and dig to get the "root"). Nothing worked.

So I decided to give the apple cider vinegar a try, I figured why not...nothing else has worked and at least I can say I have tried every option.

I put the ACV on a cotton ball and taped it on my foot over night. The pain was...intense for the first 2 nights only. The plantar wart turned black within the first night. I kept doing this for about 1 week and both PW's are gone!!! WOOHOO!!!

For those who are skeptical try it, it works wonders! What've you got to lose?

I had a large wart on my finger that resisted all methods of removal.  I tried every OTC remedy on the market as well as having my doc freeze the stupid thing a couple of times.

I was desperate because it hurt and looked terrible.

The Apple Cider Vinegar is a God-send.  I used an emory board (nail file) to file the top of the wart off, put on a few drops of ACV, made sure the bandaid pad was soaked in ACV as well and covered it.  I repeated this once a day for two weeks.

THE WART IS COMPLETELY GONE!!!  There's only a tiny scar left where the wart resided for over 5 years.

The people who write that it's excruciating are wusses.  It stings but it's nowhere near as bad as some of the other remedies I've tried.  And this works!

It really really works!  Give it a try.  Just be persistent and you'll be stunned by the results.  I know I was!

So after I realized that those annoying things on my feet are plantar warts, I wanted to get rid of them ASAP.

I got warts when I was a kid (on the same darn foot) and had to get them frozen, then shaved off by a doctor.

I really didn't want to spend the money, so I started looking for a natural way to get rid of them. When I came across this ACV method, I tried it right away.

My warts are pretty deep so for me it stings. Not bad enough to really bother me, but putting my foot in a shoe and then driving kind of hurts. But after the first night, I can already see a difference.

Today is day two for me, and the warts are starting to turn brown, which I am assuming means that they are dying.

I cannot WAIT to get rid of these and get a pedicure, or a foot rub from my boyfriend. I will be back in a few days to report my final results.

I have had a plantar wart on the ball of my foot for twenty years.

Over those twenty years I have done everything possible to try to get rid of this ugly painful thing.

One treatment caused it to spread & I now have had another wart for about five years.
Then another one appeared six months ago.

My girlfriend mentioned acv & I thought she was mad!

After only one day they all started to go black, the pain was excruciating but I persisted & they are now going away.

Wow, this is really working!

I have 7 warts on both hands, really embarrassing. In fact, I went on an interview and I'm convinced I didn't get the job due to my skin.

I've been going to the dermatologist for 4 months. Only 1 wart actually went away.  She would freeze them and then I'd use the acid at night. With exception to the one wart, none improved. I think it got worse!

So I searched online for other suggestions. I found ACV and have tried it for 3 nights. It's painful. Now I don't know if every dr. will do this but I told my dermatologist about this and she prescribed vicodin for me. I'm not abusing the pills and the pain has decreased at night. It's the only way to fall asleep.

One of my 6 warts have disappeared 95%.

Finally, as a big test, I'm using acid on one wart. Basically I want to compare for the next 5 days. I already know the answer but I want to make a point of this.

Best of luck to everyone trying!

I have had this plantar's wart on my foot for at least six years and I have tried EVERYTHING. Not only did it not help, my wart was spreading and I soon had three.

I used Compound W, the home freeze off kits, getting it frozen off by a dermatologist about four times, having a dermatologist drip acid onto it, an experience so painful I can't even begin to describe it.,br>It was starting to affect my movement and I'm a avid runner/biker and I could feel it throb whenever I would work out.

So, desperate and upset after the last acid treatment left me unable to walk for a week and it STILL came back, I went online and found apple cider vinegar.

There were so many good reviews I figured I'd give it a try. I alternated between soaking my foot in a tub of ACV to the cotton ball on overnight.
Don't get me wrong. It HURT (not as much as the acid, thank goodness) but I could see the wart dying so I kept at it.

Finally, I can see the new pink skin on the surface of my foot and I can't feel the hard little nob on the inside anymore.

I'm going to keep at the ACV every other night for another week or so, but it looks good! I'm so excited!
Looking forward to finally getting a pedicure!

I've had this POS wart on my thumb for about 4 years...I would use treatment after treatment and it would just keep coming back. Then I ACV'd it.

Oh, the burn. SO worth it. I loved thinking about how the vinegar was going to town on that evil wart, killing it off my finger.

I'd be able to flake off dead stuff daily and see the shrinkage...awesome.

DO IT!!!

This actually works. I was skeptical at first, but willing to try it because I had given the home freezing kits a shot and they never worked.

I had five big warts on my left hand which were insanely ugly and I taped two cotton balls that I dunked in apple cider vinegar for one week.

I saw that the edges of my warts were white and puffy, so I grabbed a pair of tweezers to see if anything was working and one popped like a zit, disgusting I know, but I grabbed ahold of the edges of the wart and pulled it out of my hand. I followed suit with the next four.

ACV can really tear your skin off though, so be careful, but that's what makes it work, it makes that area of the body uninhabitable for the plantar wart virus.

It's amazing.

NB ( From :
The Method for the removal of warts, with apple cider vinegar, normally requires approximately two weeks AND it does NOT call for digging through or tampering with the warts during the treatment ( though some testimonials of people having done so, report success at getting rid of their warts that way as well).

The pain generally subsides after the first few days (providing the warts are not tampered with and no vinegar is poured over raw flesh). Some people also prefer to do the treatments during the day - rather than at night - so as to sleep without pain."

My daughter, who also suffers from severe eczema began to develop warts on her fingers about a year and a half ago.

I tried the over the counter remedies such as compound w and the ones that "claim" to remove the wart in one application or less.  None of what I used worked.

The doctor examined the warts which were spreading and stated that they would eventually fall off but gave me a prescription for cimetidine to give her orally.  Cimitidine is normally prescribed for acid reflux but apparently studies have shown that it can have some effect on warts.  Needless to say, I was not comfortable giving my 3 year old this drug, especially since it is take by mouth and she gagged every time I gave it to her!

About a month ago, I brought her to the dermatologist again and they scheduled another appointment with a specialist who would supposedly "burn" them off.  By this time, the warts were so big that I knew something HAD to be done.  My little girl had about 100 warts on her of various sizes. they had spread to her wrists and on her arms and on the top of her hands. Most were not that noticeable, but the ones on her fingers were huge and very very unsightly.  She had 3 or four huge ones on each thumb and a couple on just about every finger.

Anyway, I searched online for wart remedies and came across apple cider vinegar as a recommended treatment.  I did it and it worked!!!!

Within three days, the warts began to fall off all over her body.  The smaller ones, sloughed away like they were exfoliated and the big ones began to either dry out and turn black or come off layer by layer.  My daughter did experience discomfort but she was also happy to see them start to come off.  It has been about a month and they have not come back and her skin has healed completely!!!

I thought it would take a miracle to get rid of those things but it was very easy to do the treatments.  I put about 1/3 cup of ACV in her bathwater everynight and I directly treated the big ones with an ACV soacked cotton swap kept on from bedtime until the morning.  It seems like once the big ones started to die, the smaller ones died too so I did not have to treat them all directly.

Please try this remedy, it truly does work!!

Hey I have been doing this for a few days and it really hurt.

But after about 2 days half the wart turned black and fell off.

I kept doing it to see if the rest would fall off but it looks a little worse, it has like rised up...and has a little bit of water that leaks out of a little hole on one side.

Is it infected should I stop?  Or has this happened to someone else? As the wart removal procedure requires normally 2 weeks, it would be best to continue the treatment. In the process of being destroyed, many warts raise up and become puffy and wrinkled. Sometimes, there is a little discharge like the one you describe. If you fear an infection, you may want to apply a little Polysporin on the wart in between the applications of apple cider vinegar treatments (when you do not wear a Bandaid to hold the cotton ball soaked in vinegar).

I have had an incredibly stubborn wart on my thumb for 10 years, and after 8 cryo treatments and a trip to the Dermatologist my wart still didn't die, so i have been using acv for 3 nights and it has already turned black.

I found that the acv didn't sting as much through the dead black tissue, wo I have safely cut the top layers off, and reapplying the acv to the deeper wart tissue.

Fingers crossed this will kill it once and for all.

So far so good...

I did the treatment overnight, after it became to painful.

I let it dry and it fell off.

It started to grow again so I did the treatment again on the much smaller wart.

It's gone for over a year now! Yey!

I came across this site and read many of the comments so decided to try it on my 2 very large warts on my left thumb.

I had them for many months and wasted time and $$$ trying compound w gel and even a freeze off kit.  These products did nothing to them!

It only took about 3 days and then I could dig out the warts.  It did hurt for me quite a bit.  I couldn't do it at night b/c of the pain so I only applied it during the day but left it on all day.  I Used cotton balls, soaked in acv and band-aids.

I would apply one treatment in the morning and then reapply a new one in late afternoon.  At night I let it air out.  That's it!

On the 3rd day, it didn't hurt as much so I thought that was a good sign that maybe it was working and killing it.  I was right!

I am letting them heal right now and if I see anything coming back, I will promptly start treatment again!

So easy, inexpensive and most importantly IT WORKS!!!!!

I just started the ACV treatment last night.

I did the cotton ball soaked in acv taped to my pw. I woke up this morning and its white a puffy around it.

I changed to a new cotton ball with avc and re-taped it for today. It doesn't burn but it looks like something is happening! Hopefully it is working!!!

I'm going to continue this for the next 2 weeks. We shall See..... Thanks, I sure hope this works!!!

I have had this thing for like 3+ years and I have been to a couple of doctors. One tried cutting it out but it immediately came right back...

Please let this ACV trick work!!!!  *fingers crossed*

This works great, and  only in a few days.

I had a wart removed from my thumb a few months ago by the Nirto from the doctors office, and said I would NEVER have that done on my feet because it hurt So badly.

Well needless to say I found one on my foot a few weeks later.

I am doing the ACV now and it is amazing how this works, and the great thing is that you are not putting chemicals in your body!!

I picked at it a little and I was going to try wart bandages but I found out about acv and I've been using it for two days.

No pain yet but it feels like its throbbing but minus the pain.

Odd but it seems to be working, it turned black already.

Tried everything to get rid of a wart on my little finger - home freezing kits (useless), duct tape, salycylic acid and had it frozen off by a nurse twice with liquid nitrogen. Nothing worked, it came back bigger and stronger every time.

One week with ACV at night and that was it - gone.
Painful - are you kidding - it absolutely wrecked at night but soooo worth it to be rid of the blasted thing.

Two months now and wart free.

I am delirious - thanks for posting ACV as a wonder cure for warts.  Would never have believed it but there you go, cure for less than a pound!

About a year ago I had a wart on my pinky  that was huge and white and gross and pretty much half the size of my finger nail.

Well, I ACV'd it up, and it was completely cured and wonderful. About two days into it, it got bigger and black and even grosser so I had to wear a band aid over it, but after that it shrunk until it was gone with no pain.

So now I have another wart on my middle finger, and right this moment it's festering in a cotton ball of vinegar.

I know it will work, but what's bizarre is that on the finger I'm treating, my finger /prints/ have become all swollen and weird. They stick out like a millimeter from my finger. I'm not worried, It's just bizarre. :/

Good luck, it's tedious and smells terrible, but stick with it and it will work.  :3

Apple cider vinegar is a miracle worker...

I had a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot for 12+ years. I had no clue what it was when it first came up so it was ignored for most of the time. Even though I was embarrassed by it and wanted it to go away..

Eventually I found out what it was so I went to the store and bought some freeze off. I tried it multiple times and they all failed. I was so frustrated and started to lose hope.

A few years later I came across this website and read about apple cider vinegar. I already use it on everything else.. why not try it on this sucker? I was a little skeptical at first because of all the other times I've tried to freeze it, cut it out, use duct tape, etc with no prevail. Still I went through with it. I was determined to get rid of it this time around, I didn't care about the pain that I would feel.

A few weeks went by of applying a soaked cotton swab and a band aid on the bottom of my foot everyday, sometimes ever other day, and eventually the apple cider vinegar literally ate through the wart. Mine did not turn black.

I am so happy foot is finally healed and no longer do I have the wart that has been there forever.

If you haven't tried apple cider vinegar yet, I suggest you give it a try. Its really a miracle worker!

I am telling you no lies here.

I had a wart on my eyebrow since I was nine.
I was so embarrassed and tired of hiding it I cut it off twice with finger nail clippers.

I am now 36 and it started to come back again, I read this page and was skeptical.  I did it any way what in the world do I have to lose.

I soaked a piece of cotton ball and left it on all night with a band-aid. It turned white and angry:)  Next day it dried up, I peeled off the scab and did the procedure again for the next 2 nights.  I stopped after that.

I am now wart free!  After 24 years of hiding my left eye and the wart with my hair and makeup.

I put ACV on a wart on the top of my finger.  It's been about a week now and it is going away!

I soaked a cottong ball in ACV, placed a band-aid on top of it to hold it in place.  The first few days hurt (burned and throbed) on and off all day.  It turned black and got large.

Now it is still black (5 days later) but half the size!  I think it will be gone in a few weeks.  The seeds are what got so black.

The only negative is that the ACV that was touching my good skin caused it to peel and get really, really dry.

My son developed a plantar wart on his foot after spending every day this summer at the pool.

At first i thought it was a blister and shrugged it off. I eventually took him to the doctor and learned it was a plantar wart.

I came home then researched home remedies and I am so thankful I found this site.

We have been using ACV for 4 days now and the wart is turning black. He says it burns when the ACV is applied but he is able to walk alot better now.

I think that with a few more applications the wart will be completely gone!

I am truly glad that I found this site.

I had been trying to get rid of 2 plantar warts for at least two years, if not longer, going from one over the counter remedy to another.  I even used a prescription treatment that my dermatologist gave me.
Nothing, absolutely nothing worked.

After using the ACV for exactly 2 weeks, one wart is gone and the other is almost gone.

I am simply amazed at this success.  There was pain, sometimes rather intense, but 2 ibuprofen took care of it.  I'm even taking a tablespoon  of ACV daily just for general health.

Thank you so much for this site.

But it's working and I don't really like nails anyway. Hurts quite a bit though and they're much more obvious now.

Ok, so first off I had this plantar wart on the bottom of my foot for about 7 months now.

At first it looked like a little blister and I didn't think that much of it. But when it started becoming hard I started to worry. I showed my parents but they weren't to concered by it and they said it was a corn.

So I went to the store and bought Corn removers from dr. Sholls and I used them repeatedly for about 5 months but all it did was grow back whenever I peeled of some of it.

So then I looked up pictures on the Internet and figured out it was a plantar wart!!!

But the corn removers had the same thing in it as the plantar wart removers which was salicylic acid.
So I didn't want to go through those stupid medicated disks anymore cause they weren't doing anything.

So I looked up home remedies on plantar warts and found out about the ACV.

And it's working!!!!!!

I've been putting on duck tape on both my plantar warts with a cotton ball filled with ACV. ( yea it multiplied ) and the main plantar wart is turning black.
I'm so happy I didn't think that they would ever fall off!

I recommend this to everyone that is having plantar wart problems!!!!

It started out looking like a small bug bite on the side of my third toe.

I figured it would eventually go away on it's own, little did I know it didn't. After realizing it was a plantar wart, I quickly bought liquid salicylic acid and band-aids with salicylic acid, after a couple days the area expanded and skin started peeling off.I thought I was headed in the right direction, but after some research I learned it can take many months for the acid to work.

I then read about apple cider vinegar and was quite intrigued by the possible solution. I made a deal with myself if in the next  2 months I did not see any improvement I will try ACV. I was a little nervous to try ACV after reading about the burning and stinging sensation, but my 2 months were up.

By this time the wart had grew  larger and was mighty painful. I was seriously considering going to the doctor but again I did more research and found that doctors only prescribe a stronger acid and do painful laser and surgical interventions when in most stories I read the wart came back in a matter of months.

I gritted my teeth and decided to give it a whirl. The first application of ACV was a piece of pain just smelly ACV.

The next couple of days the wart started to expand and became inflamed, I will be honest I started to freak out thinking the wart had become infected. I quickly went online and learned that it was normal. I continued my treatment regimen for the next couple of weeks and saw many changes. And yes it did burn! But I figured if it didn't burn I should be concerned. After 2-3 weeks of ACV the plantar wart is completely gone!

This is what I did:

After I took a shower I took a small piece of cotton ball and dipped it in ACV and fastened it with normal everyday band-aid and then used medical tape to reinforce it. I did this only at night because I couldn't tolerate the stinging in the daytime.

Started treatment on july 2nd it is july 9th and my wart is gone, I just put tea tree oil with witch hazel on it for good measure.

It left a hole on my finger but thats a good sign that I removed the whole thing.

I even picked out the core, hoping for the best.

I have always used acv for a lot of things, who new the cure to my problem was right in my closet.

Hopefully no more band aid covering for me. I got tired of telling people I accidentally cut myself.
