Banana Peel and Duct Tape for Warts
Home Remedy Ingredients:
Combining two of our most popular wart remedies into one might be the best bet. Rub the inside of a little piece of a banana peel on a wart and keep it in place with a strip of duct tape applied so as to completely cover the wart. Whenever the tape gets loose, throw it away, gently scrape at the top of the wart, and then put new pieces of banana peel and tape on.

[YEA] 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.
[YEA] 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!!!
[SIDE EFFECTS] 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?

[YEA] 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!

[YEA] 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...

[YEA] 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.

[YEA] 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!

[YEA] 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....

[YEA] I was so pleased when I found this site for banana peels. Several years ago a friend told me about there usefulness for getting rid of warts. It was good to know, but I've never had warts. A year or so after that our daughter was in a very bad car accident. Maybe because of stress or picking something up at the hospital (spent several days there with her). I found something on my back that looked like ring worm. About the size of a quarter and it burned and itched. Didn't go to a Dr. (don't like them). Decided to try the banana peel. My husband cut a piece and put it inside down over the mark, covered it with gauze and taped it down. Next day it was better. Continued this for three more days and the thing was gone. Haven't had a return of it. Have also tried peels on sore throat. Put the peel on your throat and wrap with a towel or something to keep it in place. Sleep or rest for awhile. See how it feels a few hours later.
I've only been online a couple of months, but I love earthclinic. I've always been one for alternative remedies and love having them at my finger tips. I've learned so much. Oh, I tried the oil pulling. Had an abcessed tooth and was using clove oil, which worked beautifully, but had to keep applying it. Started oil pulling on January 26, 2013 and three days later I didn't need the clove oil anymore. Don't have to put it on over night or anything. It's great and the pain is gone. Teeth are white. Also noticed my neck doesn't seem to sag as much. Don't know if that is from the constant movement for the 20 minutes of oil pulling or the oil itself doing something.
This is a wonderful site. Thank you. Carol from Pa

[YEA] Banana Peel is amazing. My 7 yrs daughter had 3 little warts under her right foot toe. I was looking for an alternative to chemical treatment and found this web site. To be honest, I was not sure but I thought to give it a try before we see the doctor. Guess what, in just three days using the banana peel and duct tape the warts become black. I used an emery board to clean before applying the peel. In the fourth day they disappeared and left little scars that in about two weeks also gone.
Thanks a Lot for this website and the excellent feedback. This has spared my daughter the pain chemical or worse yet surgical treatment.

[YEA] IT REALLY WORKS!!!! My daughter 9yrs old had a planter wart on her foot, had them frozen a couple times, never worked. Then 6 months later all of these little warts started to pop up on both of her feet (cluster warts). Took her to the doctor they sent me to a specialist. They were going to put a needle in every wart she had , horified of the thought. She gave two other options freezing again, and another treatment that would also cause blistering. Well I left to get a perscription as a plan B option and it was going to cost $400 and with insurance to cover some- no thanks.
So I have been reading all the statements about the banana peel on this web site so I tried it what would it hurt. I was amazed of the results within three days the warts were turning black and starting to shrink and fall out within 10 days of putting a green banana peel with white surgical tape every night and taken off in the mornings they were gone. I just wish doctors would let you know that there can be a natural way to get rid of warts. I also gave her vitamin D3 for children to help increase immune system. Thank you!!!!

[YEA] First I must start by saying a BIG thank you to the earth clinic!!! I was so fedup with a huge wart between my toes, was trying all sorts of treatments but nothing really helped and the pain I had with using salisic acid on my warts is another story!!! I was desperate to get it off my leg and finally found your website and started using banana peel on my wart regularly for the last 2 weeks and finally the ugly looking wart is off. I'm still using the banana peel just to be safe. Thank you so much!!!

[YEA] Banana peels worked great for me! What I did was scrape some of the banana peel inner membrane off with a spoon, then put that substance onto a bandaid, and put the bandaid directly over my wart. I changed the bandaid about twice a day. After 2 weeks the wart was completely gone.
On a side note, I've also had some luck in the past cutting warts off with fingernail clippers. It doesn't hurt as much as you might think it would, although you have to make sure you get deep enough down to cut the base out. Warning though, it can get bloody. My success rate with this method is about 60%, and you do have to have a pain tolerance. IMHO though, go with the banana peel!

[YEA] Banana Peel worked on my 10y daughter's periungual wart. I did not realise it was a wart for about 8 months as it is quite an unusual wart. I thought it was a skin infection from a torn hangnail aroung her big toe then as it got bigger I thought perhaps it was some kind of foot fungus. We treated it with Golden Seal ointment every night for months and months and although this did keep it from getting bigger, it just wouldn't go away and when we stopped the Golden Seal it would grown bigger.
Then one day we noticed two small, more normal looking warts on the next toe. I realised the growth was spreading and after some online research discovered it was a periungual wart. I had heard of the banana peel wart treatment before, my daughter was not keen until she read the posts on here and then she wanted to started right away. We did it with with a piece of banana peel and band aid. We saw an improvement the very next day, we changed the peel every evening and it was only on days when she had barefoot PE at school that she didn't want the peel, so we just put a band aid on with a smear of manuka honey on those days.
It is just over three weeks now and the periungual wart is GONE. The other two little warts on the next toe are being a bit more stubborn but are smaller and I am sure they will be gone soon as well. My daughter loves reading the posts on earthclinic now, as much as I do. Thank you.
