[YEA] After reading all the posts in this forum, I decided to give it a try and walk around with this magic bananapeel under the soles of my foot. I have been suffering from warts for over 10 years now and despite the fact that the original one's aren't there anymore, in general - they are highly persistant & replaced by new ones all the time.
My method: Cut small parts from the peel and rub this firmly over/into the wart. After this I cut small 1cm x 1cm parts, put them on it and stuck it to my foot with some bandaids or tape. I would do this every night before going to bed and keep them on afterwards. I also wanted to let them ventilate a bit, so after showering i.e. I let them breathe for an hour orso, after which they were again annoyed by my new fruity invention. So: I wore them as much as possible, e.g. shopping, running, training, movies etc.
My result: After doing this for one week straight, the result was that the warts seemed to react in some way. It was not very clear, partially because there was lots of hard skin and the banana peel left some black color here and there... but despite this is noticed that they were annoyed and some of them started to shrink a little.
After this week, I went on vacation to the seaside for a week - where I didnt use any banana for any other purpose than my milkshakes. Upon return I did it for 2 more days, after which I had an appointment with a wart-expert in the dermatology department in the hospital. She took her scalpel and gently scratched the excess skin off (no pain, don't worry) and she started laughing! "I think this approach of yours is doing the trick; they are disappearing!" As indicator she pointed at the lines on your skin (like a finger print) that were now no longer going around the wart, but followed a normal path over it - indicating that the normal skin structure came back.
Not all of them are completely gone, but from the five I had on my 2 feet, at least 3 have virtually disappeared and two are 'on the way' as she said.
Like many, I was quite sceptic at first, but after reading the overwhelming amount of positive feedback I thought: What the heck!
> PEOPLE: IT DOES WORK!
Maybe the Potassium did the trick, I don't care... but after years of literally walking around with this nuisance, and going to the doctor for the cryo therapy (freezing them) I believe for the first time this will be the cure for it!
Thanks a lot for all the feedback - and sorry for my extensive report, but I just wanted to be as precise as possible as it might help somebody in the same position as me. As soon as everything is gone, I will make another post to let y'all know.
