If you have a wart on your neck, you don’t have to wait for time to make it fall off, you can speed up the process using vinegar.
This product, which we typically have at home, is known for its multiple therapeutic properties, being the ideal ally to remove these unsightly protrusions. Learn more details about how to use it in the treatment against warts.
What type of vinegar is applied to the neck?
Vinegar is a very versatile product, most frequently used in various cooking recipes.
Because it contains acetic acid, it is known for its antiseptic and disinfecting properties, which is why it works as a surface cleaner and to alleviate different conditions, among them neck warts.
For the treatment against warts, white vinegar or apple cider vinegar is recommended. They mainly differ in the concentration of acetic acid they contain.
Is vinegar effective for removing warts?
The effectiveness of vinegar will depend on the size and degree of affliction of the neck wart. If the protrusion is causing discomfort, itching, inflammation, or redness, it is advisable to see a specialist to prescribe a medical treatment.
Typically, warts on the neck are filiform type, elongated formations that appear at the junction of the skin or folds. They have a dark brown hue and are soft to the touch. And they generally originate due to the human papillomavirus (HPV).
If you have small filiform warts on your neck, the natural remedy with vinegar is effective for removing them. What it does is burn the lesion so that it falls off.
Unlike medical treatments, the remedy with vinegar is painless, does not leave scars, and is more economical.
How to apply vinegar to remove neck warts?
Due to the health benefits provided by vinegar, many people, in addition to including it in their daily diet, take it on an empty stomach. In a glass of water, they mix 1 or 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and drink it in the morning.
You can also remove neck warts with vinegar by applying it topically to the lesion. The procedure is as follows:
- Dilute in a container water and vinegar (white or apple) in a 2:1 ratio.
- Clean and dry the area where the protrusion is located very well.
- Soak a cotton ball with this solution and apply it directly to the lesion. Secure it with an adhesive and let it act for a few hours. Repeat these steps twice a day until it falls off.
The time it takes for the wart to fall off will depend on each person’s body. If you have a strengthened immune system, the response time to the treatment will be shorter. Generally, it is removed in 2 or 3 weeks.
In the event that the area becomes irritated, you feel a strong burning/pain or any other reaction when applying the vinegar to the wart, you should rinse with plenty of water and see a doctor.
These were some tips to help you know how to deal with HPV. However, there is much more you need to do if you really want to get rid of HPV and warts forever.
What you need to do is GET RID OF THE ROOT of the problem.
For that reason, I recommend you to look into Dr. Kirkland's story and how he was able to cure HPV and get rid of warts for good.
I wish you great success in your recovery!
