Had my first genital wart outbreak exactly 10 years ago, defeated it with tea tree oil in about 3 months time. Had been cleared and free until just recently. Located on the dark side of the penis head, didn't do anything about it until its full blown. Went back with tea tree oil and was unsuccessful. Tried the over the counter imiquimod 5% cream for 4 weeks, during which no spread and didn't get bigger. However, my patience run dried when side effects become overbearing. So I stopped using it for a week, decided to finally try ACV. This is my first day using ACV, will report back in a week ~ wish me luck!
I am trying tea tree oil for genital warts. I've had acid and podofilin at the Dr.Office but it hurts like you can't believe and it never really cleared the warts and they just came right back. I have used tea tree oil for four days now. I bought a spray bottle and just spray it on them after I shower and leave it on all day. The first day it stung a little but not nearly as bad as in these. Office. So far it looks like that are shrinking to about 1/2 the size as when I started. I can't believe this might work and will send updates. So much easier than in the dr office and much less painful and humiliating. Doctors need to spread the word about this. None of my dr.s have ever suggested this.
Since my situation is a little more severe than most postings on here, I wanted to give details on my struggle: what worked and what didn't. First, I have a strain of HPV that is both high risk for cancer AND shows warts -great! I am also a very healthy individual, who eats well and exercises regularly. Once I realized I had HPV, I went to the Dr.and she prescribed Aldara, which worked slowly on two small bumps. After 3 weeks, they were mostly resolved. However, a third bump appeared on my vaginal opening and started growing quite rapidly. I liberally applied Aldara (daily too) but could not tell if it was working.
In frustration, I researched home remedies (which honestly I was not a fan of until now) and tried ACV on it to see what it would do. To my horror, white bumps showed up all over the vulva and near the vaginal opening. So I realized that while Aldara may work, there was no way to know where else the virus may be presenting. So, I researched ACV and started with the regimen that others mentioned on this website (overnight was impossible due to pain, but I left it on as long as I could bear, or applied it a few times throughout the day). I smelled like a salad bar and spent so much time crouched over a mirror.
Initially, I thought I was saved: bumps turned black in the center within a few days and I could pick them off in the shower. However, once I laid off ACV for a day or two, new ones appeared and more vigorous than before. So, I started again with ACV, but this time it did not seem to work as well. It took about 3 weeks to get some gone, others seem to just stay white, and a few new ones appeared too. A constant rotation of bumps in different stages- it was so frustrating, it hurt so bad, and was getting to be a real mess down there. I also believe the ACV on the cotton balls was spreading the infection to outlying areas. So I tried different techniques: using Q-tips on each one (hard bc so many), applying coconut oil to unaffected areas (may have helped to some degree), using hydrogen peroxide, taking lots of baths and keeping it dry. It just wouldn't stop and I could never get all the bumps gone. So, I tried alternating ACV with Aldara each night, thinking maybe I needed to fight this on a few different fronts. But that combo was too irritating and then, when I switched back to only ACV, my vulva looked SO bad (giant white all over almost every inch of my lower vulva and opening). It looked like one of those horrific pictures on the internet. At this point, I was too embarrassed to go to the Dr.
Researching, I found a number of scientific articles about green tea extract's efficacy. So I mixed green tea extract capsules with about 1 oz. of grapefruit seed extract and applied this to the area (I also consumed green tea extract mixed in juice (with vitamin C)). The extract felt good down there and seemed to dry out the area. It also kind of stuck to the cauliflower center of each wart and looked like it might be helping. But out of nowhere, a new outbreak developed on my anus! Due to all the warnings on the labels to not use salicylic acid on genitals, I had chosen not to do so, but at this point, I just didn't know what else to do. And I found one reference on the internet where a girl whose situation sounded similar to mine had luck.
Following her advice, I bought a blemish stick by a popular health food brand which contained salicylic acid and tea tree oil. It WORKED! Here's what happened: I put it on liberally before bed – it stung really bad but only briefly. I woke up the next morning and MY WHOLE VULVA area was HARD and BUMPY (not white) – like an alligator's back. I was VERY upset, thinking I had just ruined my vagina for life. I spent the day in shock. But the next morning I realized that actually it might be a good thing. So I took a bath (water/soaking helps it work), and applied it again. Almost immediately the warts turned brown and partly black! By that very afternoon, I could rub off 50% of them. That is where I am at today. It feels like it is working completely, unlike ACV. I am no expert, but based on all the readings I have done, I'm thinking different techniques work for different strains… Just a thought. Anyway, I will write back again if there are any new updates. I hope this helps someone who has a similar situation. Thanks to everyone who shared their stories.
Tea tree oil on GW works to an extent. I found a few on my vagina thinking they were skin tags and a yeast infection because I was really really itchy. I've been using tea tree oil mixed with aloe gel for a while and it's improved. But it has been about two months and I still have them.
I found on this site that ACV, garlic , castor oil and tea tree oil can cure genital warts, but I am afraid to use this product (I'm choosing tea tree oil, as this is I see to do not hurt, because my warts are on vagina opening). Please advice if it's okay or safe or I will feel burning on the area? Thanks.
Tea tree will not hurt.. Acv is still possible though.. I don't know what it is called in english, I think it is q-tips. Use q-tips to put Apple Cider Vinegar directly on the wart and let it sink in, and repeat until the wart is “filled” with acv I'm fighting this war as well.. Haven't had sex in over 2 years due to this and it really messed up my self esteem. This friday I got a sxdate so will be Apple Cider Vinegar 24/7 uptill then haha.. It better be gone by then or have to camcel (YES I DO! And if you all have a little moral and common sense you wouldn't go either!! ) with Apple Cider Vinegar I got the biggest of the biggest warts removed in less then a week.. Can't wait for this round to be gone gone gone.
Did tea tree work for you? I have warts in the opening and have no idea what to put on them
Tea tree oil is really effective. It works wonders! It was gone after 2days. Just like that. What I did was, I put a tea tree oil on the cotton ball and put it on top of the affected area (skin tags/warts) and let it stay there. Yes, a minty feeling but its fine. Just font let it stay for very long time because I forgot mine and it was crazy.its like if I left it much longer it develops a burnt like looking skin (which was manageabl/tolerable).a day after it was gone. But since its healing, you need to always keep the area dry at all times and can be a little bit itchy while its healing. I hope this helps. Oh yeah, ive also got that idea from a website which I totally forgot which site. 🙁 accudentally cleared the history on my browser.
Tea tree oil for genital warts: After having my third child I had really bad hemorrhoids. Then I developed a couple of "bumps" on my inner thigh that burned really bad. After much research I realized that I didn't have hemorrhoids at all! It was actually genital warts! How lovely…I know. So the first method I tried to get rid of these warts was apple cider vinegar. I applied it to the ones in my inner thigh, too scared to touch my anus with it. I applied for four days twice a day two hours at a time. Burned like crazy so I stopped. Within a week I realized they had completely come off (must've happened when I was washing my self because I didn't realize.) So I was still stuck with a cluster of warts on my anus. Researched again, bought some Dr.Scholls freeze away. Did nnothing. Then coconut oil. Did nothing. Now I've been using hydrogen peroxide when I go to the restroom. And at night use tea tree oil. I kid you not, they are almost completely gone! It's pretty awesome!!! I'm super excited. I've also started iodine supplementing with lugol's 5% iodine to help keep them at bay. I heard that works as well.
hai friend… Would you like to tell me the mixture of the tea tree oil? Do you blend with something or just the tea tree oil? And what percent of hydrogen peroxide? Thanks a lot…
Did absolutely nothing but burn.
First does anyone else have genital warts that just look like skin tags? I haven’t been back to the doctor but I know it has to be genital warts because I was diagnosed with HPV about three months ago. Anyway, I have been applying tea tree oil directly to the warts and taking a mixture of echinaacea and golden seal twice a day for a week and nothing! I only have three of four now but I want these things gone before they get any worse! PLEASE HELP!!!
this will have been my 3rd post regarding my search and test for genital warts and more specifically vaginal warts. and as mentioned in my previous post, i’ve tried almost everything to get rid of these suckers. i’ve had them for 3 years!!!! beat that everyone. i’ve tried liquid nitrogen, podofolin, raw garlic, garlic gel caps, vitamin e, jobs tears, almost every vitamin and mineral, apple cider vinegar, almost everything. i got so frustrated i was going to throw in the towel and give Aldara a try; i bought it but was to scared to try it in fear of the side effects. but i’ve been reading some online write ups on Tea Tree Oil and decided either that or aloe would be my last shot so i headed to the health food store and got a bottle. i kid you not, it’s been 3 days and i’ve seen drastic change! i still take my vitamins and minerals and drink my jobs tears every morning but the TEA TREE has done wonders for me. if you are like me and have tried almost everything and still no luck try Tea Tree Oil.
what i’ve been doing:
1) get a cotton pad damp with the oil and wipe the affected area in the mornings
2) before i go to bed again dampen the cotton pad and directly apply to the affected area for 20mins and wash.
you WILL feel a somewhat minty sensation (like vicks to the eyes) but for me it doesn’t hurt. everyone is different so if one thing doesn’t work for you try something else, then try something else, and TRY something else. it sucks, but for me the search is well worth it. since i’m only on day 3 i’ll write back in a few weeks to keep you posted.
There has been major clinical research done on Tea Tree Oil for treating yeast-infection, as well for herpes, and warts. You can google it using google scholar. It is an anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. I would personally use this before you try the ACV for 1 month. The reason being is, ACV is very painful the warts may return. With TTO, there is no pain. Just apply 3x a day. Use 100% TTO. You should combine this with fresh aloe vera leaves. Also consume Jobs Tears(Yi Yi Ren), garlic, and take daily multi-vitamins.
TTO should not be used for young children or young person still growing, as it may have estrogen (hormone) affects and can affect their development.
