See your doctor: I'm not quite sure what you had asked cause the question was cut off. With that said, the wart should be looked at by a podiatrist or dermatologist. It will be in your best interest to confirm the diagnosis and exclude a malignant lesion. Furthermore your doctor can help rid of the wart faster than home based solutions so you can be on your feet pain free in no time. Good luck. ...Read more

Does apple cider vinegar really work on getting rid of foot fungus?

Dr. David Hettinger

Not bad.: The vinegar is an acid, which most opportunistic fungus and bacteria don't like to live in! the issue is that it often can't penetrate the nail enough to get to all of the fungus. There are oral medicines and a couple topical solutions that are fda approved for this condition. See a podiatrist for all the options that may be best for you. ...Read more

Confirm, then treat.: If you continue with your self treatment, in all likelihood, a bacterial infection is soon to follow. The viral wart usually disappears when a bacterial infection starts. However, I recommend that you seek evaluation and treatment from a specialist with experience in recognizing and treating foot lesions. ...Read more

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Not entirely but...: Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues. Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more
