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
