A wart is actually a virus that is very common and easy to spread. The word plantar just denotes the location being on the bottom of the foot. When the wart first starts, it may appear as a raised area and will be painful when pressure is placed on it. As it grows or if you carefully peel back the very top layers of skin (make sure anything you use to touch the wart is clean and sanitary) you will notice an uneven surface that resembles cauliflower and disrupts the print of the skin. You may see some pinpoint black dots that connect the wart to your blood supply.
It's important to try to get rid of the wart as soon as possible to prevent spreading the virus to adjacent tissue. Warts can be very stubborn to get rid of, therefore it is of great importance to be diligent when following the protocol.
- Bragg Organic Apple Cider
- Cotton Swabs
- Duct Tape
- Sanitized File
- Tear off the very tip of a cotton swab, making sure it is just a tad larger than the wart.
- Pour 1/2 teaspoon of Bragg Organic Apple Cider into a small cap or bowl.
- Dip the tip of the cotton swab into the apple cider and place on the wart.
- Tear off a square piece of duct tap that is large enough to stick to the skin and press over the cotton swab.
- After 12 hours, remove the duct tape and swab to examine wart. Take a sanitized file and sand down the dead white skin.
- Repeat protocol until wart is gone
Sometimes in the beginning few days of starting the protocol, you may notice a swelling of the tissue in the first couple hours after applying the apple cider soaked swab. This is because it is being absorbed by the skin and may cause some additional pain.
