Many of you may know this story. Kids with warts. Dermatologist. Warts keep getting bigger, you keep paying dermatologist. Visit dermatologist for years. Warts keep getting bigger, fingers scarred. Teenagers particularly unhappy about this. Still has warts.
If you happen to be on the same page as me, I need to let you in on a little secret that these high paid dermatologists aren't telling you. Maybe it is the fact that this little secret cost about $1.50 for a year's supply and they would be out of a job in the wart department. Whatever it is, I am going to let you in on it. Maybe I can save you from the years of wart treatment torture and needless bucks thrown down the drain. Here is the rest of the story.
I went through this with my daughter first. It took us two years of the dermatologist every two weeks. Seriously. She had over 50 injections of chemo medication in the warts. Some helped, overall, they kept popping up. Finally, I put her on L.Lysine which the Dr.'s never told me about and one day, they were all gone. Then, my son started to get them. He, being of teenage years and eager to impress the ladies, was none to happy about this situation. I started him on lysine. It didn't work for him. There are different types of warts. So, we went to the dermatologist. They froze some. He had a giant crater in his knuckle that scarred big time. He was very displeased about this. We kept coming back. They would just get bigger. So, I went to the oils. The lemongrass made them swell up. That is what is supposed to happen as it pulls the virus out of the wart. My son did not like this and was sure that I didn't know what I was doing. The big problem with this was that the lemongrass turned his skin in the area applied yellow. I didn't do this for my other kids but somehow reacted to his chemistry. He would not stick with it. He was miserable and was sure that he would forever be covered in warts. I went online. Surely there is an answer.
I read about the ever faithful APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. After all, there is a million uses for this stuff. It is the cure all. The many different websites say to put some of the Apple cider vinegar on a piece of a cotton ball the size of the wart. Saturated but not dripping. Put it on the wart and cover it with a band aide. Sleep with it. Remove it in the morning and do it over and over until it is gone. It made the wart swell up, turn crusty, red, black, etc. It didn't look great. But.... in a weeks time, the wart is dissolving. It is being eaten away. Dead. I couldn't believe it. It smells horribly but one wart at a time, we are killing them. The best part is that it kills it at the roots, not just the top so it won't keep growing back. Just some little apple cider vinegar. Shame on you dermatologist for letting us get sucked into your little game.
