Banana Peel Feedback
[YEA] 02/03/2009: Cy from Montreal, QC: "For six months I had a wart or gangleon on my arthritic finger just above the nail. I read about the banana treatment here and tried it. After four days the wart/gangleon has almost disappeared completely."
[YEA] 01/29/2009: Erin from GF, North Dakota: "I just returned from the dermatologist who confirmed that my plantars warts are in fact healed. Every night after a shower I scrubbed my two toes with an emory board, rubbed banana peel into the warts, then applied the peel with athletic tape. Occasionally I would give my toes a break and would just apply tea tree oil to them after scrubbing. It worked and the warts healed from the inside. This was the only cure that worked for me even after I tried freezing them, duct tape, and apple cider vinegar. One thing to note, dispose of the used peels in a trash can with a lid. I ended up with a fruit fly infestation that took a few weeks to get rid of."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 01/21/2009: Chase from Oklahoma City, Oklahom: "I had almost given up on my warts. I got them about 5 years ago, on my right hand, about 4 of them. The only one that really bothered me was this one on my first knuckle. It started out really small but grew and grew to about the size of a large pea. So after about 4 years I finally tried getting it frozen, which worked out HORRIBLY. The pain of it wasn't bad, it was just a really annoying, bothersome, pain. After getting it frozen 3 times, it would turn brown and fall off, only to come back bigger than before, and after my last treatment the wart recruited some back up, and now there are a few odd-shaped warts around the first one. So I really just gave up. I'm very self-concsious of them and it really depresses me. I have really close friends that see it and call it gross and stuff, in a joking manner, but they don't realize how much it really hurts my feelings. Anyway, my aunt who is a nurse, tells me to try this bannana peel thing, and I thought, "I'll try it but i doubt it will work". So first I googled the rememdy and found this site, and I'm very optimistic. I just started it today and its been about 6 hours and the warts are already turning a clear/white color, like their dying. I really hope this works as for me, it will be a HUGE self-esteem booster."
[YEA] 01/18/2009: Becky from Albemarle, NC: "My teenage son had warts around his nails and one on his wrist. I had read about the banana peel cure - didn't believe it would work, but thought we'd try anyway. We just put a piece of banana peel over the wart on his wrist and put a bandaid over it. He slept with it on for about a week or two. After 2 weeks, it was still there, so he stopped the treatment. Then, several months later, he casually mentioned the wart was gone. I could not believe it! In addition, the warts on his fingers have also disappeared - and we did not even treat them! He had had these warts for years! This is a miracle treatment!"
[YEA] 01/16/2009: Sridatta Chegu from Bangalore, India: "I have tried out the Banana Peel for wart, and it worked like a charm.
I had two warts one on my thumb, near the skin above the nail, another on my foot. Without actually knowing about them, I went to a dermatologist, who confirmed that they are warts. She burnt the wart on my foot, but, removing wart on thumb by burning might harm the nerves on my thumb, and suggested to take the salicylic acid treatment. No betterment for a month. When I searched google for wart cure, I found this remedy on first page. Though, I didnot believe at first, but, after reading so many testimonials, I tried out. 5th day, the wart is gone :)"
[YEA] 01/14/2009: Karina from Sydney, Australia: "I'm from Sydney, Australia. When I was younger my mother used banana peel on my wart that I had on my left hand. She would cut out a small square big enough to cover the entire wart and then placed a bandaid over it to keep it in place. We would change it half way through the day and before I went to bed at night. The results were FANTASTIC. I recommend it to anyone who is has a wart because it is also pain free. No one ever believes me that it works because most people think it's really funny to wear banana peel around-- but what works better than nature itself?
[YEA] 01/04/2009: Sharon from Columbus, Ohio: "I had a wart on my left hand for at least ten years. I tried several over-the-counter remedies, but none worked. I tried the banana peel remedy and in five days the wart was gone! Amazing!"Replies
01/09/2009: Blank from Tracy, California replies: "I've had my wart for about 12 years on my finger on my right hand.(got them at 3 years old) I just started this method 3 days ago too. I hope this works as much as it did to you.
[YEA] 12/09/2008: Monica from Langhorne, PA: "My 9 year old daughter developed two warts: one on her toe and one on her finger, both near the nail. I decided to try the banana peel remedy. The one on her finger came off in three days. The one on her toe, which had been there for several months came off in five days leaving a little sore indent where it had been. She has no pain at all. Amazing!"
[YEA] 11/23/2008: Rosey from Ridgevlle, IN, USA: "Had planters warts for 6 plus years. Had them cut out by family doctor, that did not work, tried every home remidy I found on this computer. Banana peels taped to them with furnace tape seems to have killed the little beggers. Banana peels for 5 days, to me is seems unreal, a miracle that my feet don't hurt seems they are just smoothing over. Have pictures if I could figure out how to get them to you."
[YEA] 11/06/2008: Sarah from Tampa, Florida: "I can't even tell you how much this works. I had warts on my fingers for 3+ years to which I saw many doctors who couldn't get rid of them. I was just shy of laser surgery when they realized they couldn't do it because my nails would never grow back. Finally, my dad told me to try the banana peel. One week later, they were all gone and I had over 10 of them. My doctors had done absolutely everything including the painful surgery and a skin cancer cream to keep them from spreading. I urge you to try it. Be vigilant in your efforts doing it every morning and night. I also had to file the wart down at each dressing, but I can't even explain to you how happy I am it worked."
[YEA] 11/03/2008: Suzanne from Westlake Village, California USA: "My husband is a doctor who tried 3 times to freeze the wart on the bottom of my foot. But it just made it bigger and more sore. In the past year I've used salicylic acid, burning and scraping to no avail. I've been in pain most of that time. Three days ago I read about the banana treatment. My husband laughed at me and said, "maybe you should try magnets, too." But I did it anyway. I used duct tape to hold the banana skin to my foot. In 24 hours that wart was dying. In 48 hours I was pain free. My foot is finally healing. I am so grateful. Even though my husband makes a living by burning warts off people, I told him it would be malpractice if he didn't recommend this treatment to his patients. It's easy and fast.
To the few people for whom this treatment didn't work, maybe what you have is not a wart. Have your doctor check to make sure it's not a mole or a cancerous skin patch."
[YEA] 10/26/2008: Shelly from Iowa, Iowa: "I found this website when looking for cures for my daugher's warts, she has several on her hand. We taped small pieces of banana peel to each wart every night and two are gone, two are getting much smaller, so I'm positive they will disappear. I can't remember how long it has taken, but I would guess at least 1 month. We would forget several nights too.
Also, I found the rememdy of ACV for toe fungus and have soaked my foot every nite for about 1 or 1-1/2 months. The toenail isn't completely grown out yet, but this new growth is looking very clear, so I think that worked and it will grow out clean.
Thank you for cheap and easy remedies."
[YEA] 10/16/2008: Robert from Bolingbrook, IL/United States: "My 5 year old daughter had a nasty cluster of 3 warts on top of her foot. We tried to freeze it off and it didn't work and only mad her cry with the pain that was associated with the procedure.
We were very reluctant to go the doctor because we knew that they would want to try to cut it out and to a 5 year old that was tramatic.
We happened to mention to our friends that she had some warts and they directed us to this website. We thought that we had nothing to lose but to try the banana peel treatment because it was only a harmless banana peel. So I cut up a banana about an inch by inch size and tape it onto the warts with some bandaides to keep it still. Note, before putting the banana peel on I would wipe another piece onto warts to try to saturate the area.
After the first night you could see that it started to work because it raised and soften the warts. We changed the banana peel the next day and by the time she was ready to go to bed one of the three warts fell out! We changed the peel that night and the remaining two warts came out but some partial of remaining so we did it one more night and everything was gone! Therefore, a total of 3 days and the warts were gone and my little girl did not have to do to the doctor and go through cutting them out. We did do additional follow up treatment for about a week or so and put some antibiotic oitment to heal void that the warts left behind.
Awesome, awesome way to get this warts out painless and fast! Just give it a try, its only a banana peel and it won't hurt you to try....you'll love the results!"
