Vinegar test is not reliable for detecting HPV-warts because it gives many false positive or false negative results. This test is used only during colposcopy to mark the cervical areas from where biopsy is taken. Its usage is that can make the cervical precancerous lesions (usually caused by HPV) visible. In most cases those lesions can't be noticed without marking them. Genital warts can be diagnosed with clinical examination (inspection) and proved by DNA-tests that identify the HPV.
