I was told by a friend that if you put some vinegar on your penis, that HPV will react a certain way.
Is there any truth to this?
if not, what other ways are there for a self-test.
If there are no highly visible bumps?
Well the doctor does use a vinigar, but dont know if there is anything that is mixed with it??...You also have to consider that warts can hide where you are unable to see...unless you are very flexable.
You also want to know that doing it at home is not the best accurancy. Also, you may want to think about suppose you have no warts at all external, but suppose if you have it internal? This is why men are SO hard to test.
My advise if you want to do it at home (which I DONT recommend at all) is call your doctor dont have to give them your name and ask about the vinigar test if it is straight vinigar or is there something else added....
If it was me I would just go to the doctor, or a clinic
