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.
I had a raised wart on my back, I took a piece of gauze and soaked it in ACV and applied it right on the wart, covered it up with a piece of duck tape. would leave it on for a couple of days. repeated for about a week or so and the wart started to get all soft and turned green, scaped the dead skin off and mole was gone.
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.

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 don't know about hemorrhoids but the bacon grease gets rid of warts on the hands and fingers.
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?
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 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....

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
