I’m almost scared to have that as my blog title… afraid of what people might google to wind up here!
Ok so mine actually dealt with those nasty little boogers called Warts. Oh wow that could sound reallllly bad, we’re talking on my finger, just so we’re clear!!
I had a nasty one on my finger. So embarrassing!
Not only that but it hurt too sometimes. And please ignore the very dry index finger, that’s what we all call Winter weather!
Now I’ve had people tell me that eventually they will go away. I’m not sure what causes them to come or leave but I’ve had experience that they really do go away but this one has been around for as long as I can remember.
One day I was complaining about it and Earl heard me. She told me what she did to Moo’s (her daughter) hand to get rid of the ones she had, so I was willing to try it.
You’re going to think this sounds funny, I sure did! but enter in, the combat team!
Apple Cidar vinegar, vasoline & tape. The thing that is missing is the cotton ball.
Are you scratching your head yet?
Ok so you cover your finger (or affected area) around the wart with vasoline to help the skin soft and supple. Then you put some Apple Cidar Vinegar on a cotton ball and you take it against said wart.
Oddly enough, it winds up killing the wart.
The first day it looked majorly swollen.
A few days in sadly my finger started peeling… but I kept going.
Earl said to go about 10 days. Sadly when my finger started peeling, I didn’t make it the full 10 days. I made it about 4. By the way you only do this at night.. you don’t have to run around all day like this.
So you know that it’s working when it starts looking black.
Eventually my finger started hurting so bad I couldn’t progress any further. You can see on my finger it almost looks burnt… it hurt so I quit. But I think it was enough. It finally got to the point I had to actually cut the wart off because it was getting caught on things. I really thought that was a dumb move on my part, especially because it bled and they say you’re not supposed to cut them off because they will bleed. But it finally got under control pretty much over night, and now, look at my beautiful finger :).
I can’t guarantee it won’t come back… it’s only been gone for a little over a month, but we’ll see what happens 🙂
Hopefully this helps someone 🙂
