Q. My daughter is 23 and has had warts on her thighs all the way to her knees for five years. She couldn’t wear shorts or bathing suits because of this condition. She had over 50 warts at all times.
I lost track of how much money we spent at dermatologists trying every treatment available: liquid nitrogen, Tagamet, chemotherapy, even yeast. A new dermatologist told her she was out of options. The only thing left was to boost her immune system.
I heard your radio program and checked your book for possible home remedies. In August, I told my daughter about the vinegar treatment referenced in your book. She wet a paper towel with vinegar and wiped her warts with it twice a day. Her warts are completely gone. I cannot begin to express our appreciation for the information you provide!
A. It is wonderful to hear that applying vinegar to her warts twice a day was so effective. As you discovered, we discuss many home remedies in our book, The People’s Pharmacy Guide to Home and Herbal Remedies (608 pages). Local libraries or bookstores may have copies, or it can be ordered here online.
