Among these advantages, they say that apple cider vinegar can also be used to remove warts, however, there is no research that makes this treatment scientifically proven…?

But, even with the lack of more in-depth scientific research, many people share this experience, which makes some sense, after all, vinegar has antibacterial properties that can kill some types of bacteria and viruses. Because warts are caused by human papillomavirus, also known as HPV, apple cider vinegar has an effect capable of controlling this infection.

How to use apple cider vinegar on warts?

If you have this problem and want to try a natural treatment, it is very simple:

First, dip a piece of cotton in diluted apple cider vinegar (we suggest two parts of vinegar for one part of water) and place it on the wart with a bandage or porous tape. Do it before bed and remove it the next morning. Repeat every night as needed until the injury is gone.

After a few days of treatment, you may notice that the skin begins to swell and the wart turns dark until it falls. Continue until the skin is completely clear.

But be careful: it is essential to dilute the apple cider vinegar in the water before applying it. Due to its acidity, apple cider vinegar alone can cause skin irritation. If you think you may be sensitive to the solution, even with the dilution, do a test on an area of ​​the skin before applying.

Also avoid using apple cider vinegar on open wounds, in addition to the eye and neck area. A higher concentration of vinegar in more delicate areas of the skin can be very aggressive.

And never forget to seek help from a dermatologist whenever necessary, after all, in some cases, traditional treatment may be necessary, including the use of medications and office visits.
