Apple Cider Vinegar for Feet Combating Corns, Callouses and Warts

Apple Cider Vinegar for Feet Combating Corns, Callouses and Warts

For Corns and Callouses: First soak affected areas in warm water with 1/3 cup ACV for 20 minutes. After soak, rub areas briskly with coarse towel, then gently use a pumice stone or wand. Now apply full-strength ACV-soaked gauze bandage overnight, and in the morning prepare a fresh ACV soaked bandage for daytime use. These treatments help soften and dissolve corns and callouses. Check shoes for comfort and fit. Wrong shoes are main cause of corns, callouses, bunions and blisters. For casual wear, Birkenstock shoes are great and use orthotic inserts when needed. Give yourself weekly pedicures, massages and exercise feet daily. Doing this while watching TV is ideal. Treat yourself to foot reflexology therapy (page 108). Walking barefoot on sand, grass and at home is beneficial. Be good to your feet – they carry you through life! We kept famous foot Dr. Scholl going strong, healthy and alert to almost 100 years young!

  3. My 9 yr old has callouses on both feet. He plays lots of sports.
    I’ve put some ACV on a cotton ball and taped it to the callouses overnight. Hope this helps him.
    Thanks for the info 🙂

  4. You’re welcome, Mitzy! Also, since boys can get dirty playing sports, there is also a great remedy in my book, Apple Cider Vinegar: Miracle Health System for smelly feet by soaking them in a 50/50 mixture of warm water and ACV.

    Blessings of Health, Peace & Love! Patricia.

  6. I applied a piece of cotton ball to a wart that had persisted over a year on my daughters foot and resisted our efforts to eliminate it.. Two nites and it was gone…I couldn’t believe it. I swear by ACV now 🙂

  7. The uses for ACV are endless. It is good for the gut, warts, callouses, skin problems and even corns. I find it helps rashes as well.

  8. Question-
    Will ACV work on a porokeratosis?
    Let me know what you think.
    Thank You,

  9. it works well for many skin conditions as stated in our Apple Cider Vinegar book. I would dilute the Apple Cider Vinegar in water and then dab on with cotton balls or soak with 2 cups of ACV in a warm bath

  10. Question-How often do I soak and use the gauze bandages. I have hard places on the bottom of my feet a big toes.

  12. What a great solution to a corn I have on my big toe. I’ve tried everything and nothing works, even getting bigger shoes, which also didn’t work. Any pressure on my big toe, that’s where the corn is, causes pain and I’m unable to wear any stylish shoes right now. Can’t wait to try this remedy. Love good old homemade remedies rather than medications.

  14. Check out Bragg’s book “Build Strong Healthy Feet”. On page 65 is a discussion about “How to Treat Foot Corns”. You can use a corn pad for immediate relief, or a simple spot band-aid. Place the band-aid with the sterile gauze spot directly over the corn. If you have a soft corn on the toe, you can also wrap soft material such as lamb’s wool around the toe. Don’t wrap it too tight, as this restricts the circulation. Wash the area of the corn each evening and leave it uncovered. Do not cut or use razor blades. Blessings.

  16. My husband had a very, very large plantar wart on the bottom of his foot. He went to the foot doctor and they had him going back for 4 follow up appointments. working on the wart. They finally removed it, but it returned. This time larger than the first. I asked him if I could try something, at first he did not want me to and made an appointment with the foot doctor. They give him an appointment in three weeks, he was in so much pain when he walked. So then he agree for me to do my thing. I soaked his foot in ACV and warm water for about 20 minutes, this soften up some of the dead skin on the botton of his foot around that huge wart. Then applied two cotton balls soaked in ACV and used duct tape to wrap around his foot to hold the cotton balls. The next morning, we removed the cotton ball and the bottom of his foot We repeated this every evening for a week, the wart had come a lose from his skin, we repeated this for 8 days. Well, we both was surprised the wart come off, it just come off with the cotton ball. So he is still soaking his feet twice a week and I am using a prunice to remove any dead skin. He is so happy, he have started back to walking his two miles a day and smiling. Oh yeah, he canceled the appointment with the foot doctor and give me a $100.
