Our son had a wart starting to grow near the cuticle of his finger and it was actually starting to go under his nail. After putting apple cider vinegar on a band-aid and wrapping it on the finger for about one week, the wart was gone and never grew back. Place a new apple cider vinegar band-aid on the wart each night.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Blackstrap Molasses

I have just come across an article which says that moles and warts are causes by a potassium deficiency. I had not heard of this before. Interesting that Apple Cider Vinegar is high in potassium and thus good for moles and warts. Another reason to take it everyday. Also molasses is high in potassium. Below are two links the second one has foods high in potassium.

To everyone out there who has the wart problem I had one on my had for three years, tried lots of things never went. It began to spread to other fingers until I told myself I just have to live with it. That was until I finally found a solution. Vitamin a capsules yes it works trust me I pricked the capsule and just one drop on the wart every day and they all dried up. and the thing is I just applied it on one wart and they all dried up, till I just scrape it off I was so relieved to have a normal hand again :) I just say let me share this because I know what you'll are going through if it worked for you let me know jabjab123(at)live.com

I followed a recomendation of taping an asprin (or piece of an asprin) to a very stubborn old wart, and also to a dime sized skin keratosis; after 4-5 days, both disolved and never returned. It resulted in a normal scab then scar, both of which healed normally, in the usual time frame. As predicted, the salysilic acid in the asprin simply disolved all the layers of built-up skin. I treated several stubborn warts and a keratosis that caused by over exposure from the sun.

Helpful hints: On the 3rd morning, lift the tape and check it every day & night so you don't over-do the treatment and get a sore spot from leaving it on longer than necessary (which occurred during my first trial; but which I later found was beneficial because it killed the deep wart root as well). Also be sure to cut your asprin to size, and use a chunk just a bit smaller than the growth so no surrounding/healty skin is burned. Also scrape off the coating of the asprin if it is "enteric coated", and wet the asprin before taping to shorten the treatment time by a day.

I had a large wart under my finger nail on my ring finger and nothing I did would kill it! I applied everything under the sun to it, to kill it and nothing worked, I think some of the things I did to it just made it bigger! Well, I researched warts for months trying to find something that would make it go away, and after trying so many things, I remembered reading how someone had made a paste with asprin and applied it to their warts every night covering it with an bandaide, and leaving it for 12 hours at a time. I did this for about 2 weeks and noticed the texture of the wart began to change, and then it was like going away. It literally just went away! There was some old dry skin and I filed it down with an emery board and it was gone!!! I pround to say I am 2 months with no MORE WART!!!! :)

All you need to do is buy some cheap asprin, and crush it, I always crushed 2 at a time, and then in a small container would add it and a drop or two of water making a paste, and then applied it all over the wart covering it up with the paste then cover it with an bandaide for 12 hours at a time.

GOOD LUCK this works!!!

Many years ago I discovered a remedy for warts. Take an aspirin and melt it with a small bit of water. Take a toothpick & take a small amount of the melted aspirin and put it right on the wart...do NOT get any on your skin (only on the wart) as it will eat the skin. Put a band-aid over it for a day or two...Then you may want to take the band-aid off. If the wart has turned black leave it alone. If it did not turn black put a bit more fresh aspirin on it & cover again for another day or two. Then take band-aid off & forget about it. You'll look one day shortly after & the wart will have disappeared...Just do NOT get the aspirin on the skin... Cathy

After trying apple cider vinegar to no avail, and then undergoing cyrogenic freezing and laser therapy repeatedly at a dermatologist, I've had great success with the Bach crab apple flower remedy. I applied directly to the wart twice a day, and it started healing almost immediately (which is saying something, because the plantar wart has been around for over three years). It is definitely worth a try!

I've had a plantar wart on my right heel for over 4 years now. It stayed relatively small for about 2 years until it started irritating me, growing larger, and making it uncomfortable to run far distances (I'm a runner). I went to the doctor to have it, and several other smaller plantar's warts he noticed removed off the heels of both of my feet, but within weeks they returned back to how they were before. I bought at-home wart removal kits, which also resulted in a slight decrease in size, only to come back bigger and worse than before the treatment. I found this website and thought "what the heck" and within a single week all of my plantar's warts have vanished aside from the initial one that showed up years ago, which is dead and I predict will fall off within the next week.
Here is what I did:
I read a lot of reviews about applying only scrapes of banana peel to the warts, but because within the last few months the amount of plantar's warts increased dramatically (anywhere from 30-50, gross I know, small ones on both feet), as well as migrating to the sides of my feet, I decided to duct tape the peel itself to my feet.
I would shower, use a pumice stone to scrape away at my feet until they were nearly raw (because of how many plantar's warts there were and the callouses were getting worse), and then apply the banana peel. I ended up duct-taping almost the entirety of both of my feet. I would put socks on to keep the tape from falling off. I'm a waitress and a runner so I'm on my feet almost all day every day, and I would wear the banana peel and duct tape on my feet until the next time I showered, usually the next night. I would repeat this process, not letting my feet "breathe" aside from when I was showering. I've let my feet breathe for the last few days just to let the dead plantar's warts fall out and such, but I plan to repeat this process again starting today until this last plantar's wart has also disappeared. I will swear by the banana peel method to my grave, I never thought I would be plantar wart free without surgery.

15 years almost I am fighting this crasy verrucas on my feet. Every year older become bigger, and new ones appear! This year that verruca claster become painfull! I started wolking strange way trying to avoid pain. Since I am mum and breastfeeding only natural remedy is an option! I found this great site and messages of you all who tried banana peel. I started at evening. Put the peel inside on verrucas and bandage it with duct tape. In the morning I take it of and find black places where verruas are. Also I discavered new little ones growing from inside of foot. I took foot file, and as much as I could, tried to eliminate that black spots. After I was foot and put propolis drops on it. And put socks. On evening I wash my foot, took a foot file and also tried to take off as much as I could, that infected skin. And then put banana peel again. I REPETED that procedure 7 days, and all ot that bastards are gone! After 15 years I finally have nice, soft, clean foot! It works - that great banana really works!!!

I have some small warts on my forehead and used banana peel scrapings to place on the watrs. Unfortunately a rather large amount of scrapings collected on my forehead skin and not on the wart. Now the skin in this are is depressed (like a small hole or crater) and it has been burning there for about two days. I'm afraid the skin won't heal itself and also There is still a burning sensation from the area. The are is a little darker as well. Is this a known side effect and will my skin recorver/grow back? Or am I stuck with this? Is there a treatment that can stop the burning?

John, I wouldn't worry much about it. Warts are caused by a virus and what is seen on the surface is just a small part of the total system, which is like an iceberg.

The banana peel is a very effective treatment and probably just killed virally infected cells under the skin, leaving the depression. it should grow back in time--try putting extra virgin coconut oil on it and up your vitamin c intake.

John: More people eat bananas than any other fruit. There has been only 1 recorded case of somebody being allergic to them. There are only 2 possibilities I can think of. A non organic banana might have some pesticides in the peel. Normally the pesticides stay on the exterior and do not get that far into the interior. The disease might not have been confined to the wart and might also be under the skin. Maybe the nutrients in the peel killed them and they produced mycotoxins that caused the reaction.

Thanks Nanowriter from Hotspot. I do get that the wort is only the tip of the iceberg, hence the thicker skin where the wort is located. Unfortunately the banana peepl scarings slid down and colleted in an area where there are no worts whatsoever. My guess is that acid from the scrapings burnt into my skin, creating the depression in that area. The depression is the size of a small fingernail and is only where the scrapings were left. A lot of people seem to have benefited from the banana peel treatment. I would like to give the WARNING to be very careful if banana peel scrapings are applied and not just the banana peel. It is my experience that they can burn into the skin. One possible explanation that I can come up with is that I scraped too hard on the banana peel so that too much acid juice from the banana peel itself might have made its way into the scrapings that I applied on my skin. I haven't given up hope that the skin will grow back in the area, partly or completely and I will post at a later date about this to make sure others can take their precautions. In the mean time I will treat the area with virgin coconut oil and up my vitamin C intake, as you suggest.

Thanks Mike62 for your reply. I seriously can't see how I could be allergic to bananas as I have been eating them all my life and don't have any other allergies whatsoever. I'm pretty sure it was an organic banana but can't be completely sure of this. I am very sure, however, that the part of the skin, where the banana peel scrapings ended up accidentally, did not have any problems before what I presume is an acid burn cause by banana peel scrapings.

It's been a little more than 5 weeks since the banana peel scrapings burned a cavity on my forehead. It is still slightly darker and the whole is still there but it is less. I still hope it will disappear in time but I'm guessing it will not go away completely. I wish I had been more careful with the banana peel scrapings or just stuck to rubbing the skin lightly with the banana peel. That would probably have been completely safe. Does anybody know how long I should avoid being in the sun so that the tissue does not turn even darker?

I have had this wart on my ankle for some time. Kind of annoying. So I took a look at home remedies on the Internet and saw the banana peel tretment. I live in Thailand, Banana Central, so thought, what the hell. I started the treatment (inside peice of green banana peel duct taped over the wart) exactly one week and four days ago. Every time I took off the tape it looked the same, including today. So I came back to this site for another look today. While reading, I pulled off the duct tape and the wart still looked healthy, but the area was kind of grungy from the tape glue. So I took a damp cloth and rubbed the area vigorously, and guess what? The wart rubbed off! Where it wase began to bleed rather profusely, but I am sure it will stop soon. So, another success story! While I wrote this, still bleeding, but better than the wart!

I can't still believe that my three year old wart on my leg finger is vanishing. I applied acid on it , later painful laser surgery and again acid application. I found that it is not working and the wart is spreading to another finger.

i read all you comments and It gave a boost up to start using the banana peel. It really worked. It has been a week that I put a banana peel with the inside of the peel touching the wart and used a band aid to hold it through out the day. I changed it every day. The new ones disappeared in four days. the bigger one (around half an inch dia) is almost gone and I can feel the soft flesh now.

I thank all of those who contributed by giving their valuable feedback. Banana peel really works. And it is painless, no chemicals and cheapest cure ever. Kudos to the Mother Nature...

I almost never leave feedback. But this treatment/home remedy is the bee's knees. I have had plantar warts for 15 years straight, unrelenting. I've been to podiatrist to dermatologist back to podiatrist. I have tried ACV, silver nitrate, Aldara, tea tree oil, duct tape, salycilic acid, pumic stones, freezing kits, sand paper, liquid N2, colloidal silver, salt water, the list goes on. I was able to eliminate 10 out of the 11 on my own within 2 years of everyday constant treatments. But the real doozie was the one my heel. I got rid of it but it came back double the size. I couldn't walk very well for over a year and half. It felt like a screwdriver being driven into my foot. Even the podiatrist couldn't cure this sucker. I read the reviews about the banana peels and gave it a shot. The 1st week I wore the peel cover in plastic wrap and taped down on the sides for 23 hours a day. I would sand it down and re-apply a new peel after each shower. I saw marked improvement in 1 wk. The following week I wore it only at night time, every night. As for the peel, I used a perfectly yellow peel and froze it in a ziplock. My thinking is the peel + the frozeness might help in elimination. Currently, it is basically gone. I will continue a maintance of peel just to 100% it is really gone. I've told all my friends and family. I'm so glad that it works.

I am a 100% "true believer" in the power of banana peel treatment for the painless method of removing warts! I had one on the delicate side of my "soft spot' on my face by hairline. I was religiously faithful for 2 1/2 weeks putting a fresh piece of the fruit, and grey duck tape on it at night, I could slowly see the area darken more and more and smaller and smaller, filing gently and "wulla" in less than 3 weeks it is absolutely gone!

Thanks for the info. Try it it really works!

Oh god! It really works in my hand, who invented this I don't know but really thanks to them. I was unable to bear the pain the wart caused in my hand fingers. but when I used banana peels overnight it is really working. I could see my wart slowly diminishing from my finger. Just I used for 2 nights only.... And plan to use as much as possible to get rid of it completely. I still have to try in my legs, where I have it in four places. In spite of keeping my legs clean I don't know how I got this wart and calluses. I have a doubt whether "it may be due to the winter climate" can anyone please tell me what may be the cause? I'm not sharing my shoes and other accessories with anyone then how it happened? Also it is spreading to two/three fingers. for others who see the wart area they will think its just small one like, but whoever have gone through the problem only knows how much it will pain. Will it be a vitamin or nutritien difficiency? Can we reduce/cure it through our diet? Can anyone tell how to remove that virus from our body? Since I m having a kid I m afraid whether it will affect her also? please give me suggestions....

Eating leafy greens (kale, mustard, turnip) will make the warts disappear and your skin will be much softer. Eat them at least once, preferably twice, a week for a month or so. Will also help with anemia as they have lots of iron in them.
