They are small skin infections caused by HPV (human papilloma virus) that are generally harmless, but incredibly unattractive.
I am one of the many unlucky people who get them. Growing up I had them often, and I would always get them frozen off by a dermatologist. I can only imagine the hundreds of dollars my parents spent trying to get rid of those things. No matter how many times I tried, they just kept coming back.
A few years back I was fed up and wasn’t at a point of being able to shell out more money. I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. I had some Bragg’s apple cider vinegar and decided to give it a go. ACV works wonders for the body in so many ways (we will be talking about that soon!), and to no surprise it took care of the warts! Here is what I did:
What you need:
- Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
- small sterile pad or cotton ball
What to do:
- Clean the wart area with soap and water and let completely dry.
- Meanwhile, fold the sterile pad to be a little larger than the size of wart and soak in the ACV.
- Place on wart and cover tightly with band-aid.
- Then you wait. While you wait I would recommend changing the pad and band-aid daily. After 3-4 days the wart will turn black and the area will be sore. Continue the regimen and after a few more days the wart will fall off.
Apple Cider Vinegar wins again!
