The Core of a Wart?

I have a plantar wart I've had for 3 years, tried everything. A couple of weeks ago I tried the fingernail polish method. It kept wearing off after a couple of days, so I gave up. Last night I trimmed it really well and there seemed to be some skin in the middle. It wasn't black, like I've read about before, but thought maybe it was the core? I cut as much as I could, it was very painful. Before bed I did the ACV with a cotton ball and bandaid. I get up this morning and the outsides are all raised up and it's black in the middle, but it HURTS really bad! It's hard to walk on it. Did I do the right thing? Do I keep putting the ACV on and eventually the core will come out? I am going on vacation next week and am very afraid that I am going to be in pain. Thanks!

Re: The Core of a Wart?

How's it going?

If it's still real sore, I think I'd shift off to washing it well and antibiotic cream. You didn't say if you went deep enough for it to bleed but I'd definitely do this is you caused bleeding.

A while back I got a plantar wart and I freaked. I'd read how hard they were to get rid off. I must have been very lucky because I went that night and got the acid stuff and duct tape and did that method and it took care of it with no problems at all. I'd really recommend it as a first effort for folks but you have to be religious about the process.

Well, I am not sure it's gone. It was much, much smaller than before. I think I need to try another round of ACV. I only did it for 4 days.
