I discovered a couple of (what looked to me to be) warts on the shaft of my penis a little over 3 years ago. I wasn't sure what to do and left them alone for a while. I noticed a few more had grown and eventually tried to treat myself, but not on a consistent basis. They would disappear for a day or two but then return. Two larger ones, flat, on the top side of my shaft and quite a few smaller ones on the bottom.
It wasn't until recently, about 2 or 3 months ago that I started to treat them aggressively. I started using Apple Cider Vinegar and immediately noticed a change. The smaller ones on the bottom of my shaft would sort of disappear and reappear, kind of like they flattened out but then would raise up a bit. They would turn white and then sort of scab, and would appear gone but under an intense light I could still see there were bumps. The 2 flatter ones on the top of my shaft are more stubborn. I finally got them to turn black and crust over, but the raised skin would still be there. I'm wondering how long a self-treatment like this takes to get rid of the warts?
I also discovered new ones a few months ago at the base of my scrotum near my groin. They don't seem to be responding to the ACV very well.
I've heard that ACV is a very good treatment, better than the creams that are prescribed. I do want to see if Aldara can work for me, but I don't know if I can afford it right now.
Is is strange that the warts have lasted this long? And that they are taking so long to disappear from the ACV?
