I'm not sure if this is a 100% natural remedy, but I figured since it worked for me I thought you guys might be able to post something like it on your website, so that others may benefit from it healing properties. It's called Duct Tape, LOL Yes that's right... it's the stuff used when you need to fix a seal or to keep cords in place from others tripping over. May not sound like it's of much use, but I have found it to work wonders! One of which is Warts! Ever since I was little I somehow seemed to pick up warts very easily, especially when I'm going barefoot in the locker rooms or at the swimming pool. I was getting fed up with the expensive over-the-counter topical remedies to so to say "Kill Off" or "Burn Out" the wart(s). And after going to the doctor's over and over, with the freezing methods that may require a second or third visit depending on the severity of the fungus, I began my search for something that would both be effective and inexpensive. I looked no further than the kitchen cupboard. By placing a piece of duct tape over the affected area(s) it from what I've gathered "Irritates the wart", which in turn causes your immune system to respond. I have as well as my younger sister have both tried this with outstanding results. I can honestly say that if you keep it covered with duct tape the wart(s) will be gone in as little as a couple of weeks. I figured since I've had such dramatic results from this, others may benefit from it as well. I hope that by my experience you will be able to share this among the other readers of this website. Thanks!

After months of treatment, with over the counter medicines, including the freezing method which upset my daughter terribly, a simple piece of duct tape on the wart for 4 days took it completely away! How I wish I tried it first! The best part is that my kid didn't mind putting the tape on... she thought it was fun!
Just found your website and love it, so wanted to tell you of my own experience. A while back I developed an ugly wart on my ear. I tried everything on the market, but nothing worked, until I mentioned it to my mother-in-law. She told me of a remedy that was passed down from her great grandmother, which was to apply egg white to the wart several times a day, and before going to bed at night. I figured I would try it since I had nothing to lose. After a few days I noticed it was smaller, and about 10 days later it was completely gone. I was amazed, and am now a firm believer of old time remedies!
An accidental discovery at my skin clinic - my nephew suffers from KP (keratosis pilaris) which is a skin condition in which the skin is very dry and bumpy. KP is most common on the back of arms and thighs.
I recommended Emu Oil Soap and natural Emu Oil for his KP. After a few weeks, he told me that the plantars warts he had between his toes were gone (this is after several cryo (freezing) appointments with his MD. This was from using the soap which washes down the drain and doesn't really stay on the skin in any substantial concentration.
To test his theory, I had my sister-in-law use some Emu Oil on my niece who has suffered from Plantars Warts for several years - gone in two weeks!
Now - I recommend it to everyone with warts.
I soaked my feet in epsom salts to relieve the pain of a broken toe. to my surprise the warts I had on my lower legs for years fell off as I toweled my foot dry. what pleasant surprise.
I have had quite a few warts throughout my life and have undergone the carious methods of removing them (freezing at the doctor's office, freezing at home, the acid drops, the acid band aids etc..) I have even gone to the extent of taking a wood burner and frying off one that was stubborn, but I finally got one that would not sucomb to any of these methods. I met a kid at a car detailing joint in Florida that told me Epsom salt cured all his warts so i figured I would give it a try. By this time this wart had gotten significantly bigger. It was now the size of a dime on the inside palm of my right hand. It was painful to do anything because it would split open and crack. heres the method I used. I bought a pint of Epsom salt which is very cheap and a paper nail file and a water dropper. I filed off all the dead skin so I could get to the seeds of the wart (just where it started to get sensitive and bleed a little bit) I would then take some of the epsom salt crystals and lay them on the wart. Take some warm water and use the dropper to apply to the salt crystals. The crystals dilute in the water and soak into the wart. After I let it soak for a few minutes I would clean up and leave a few crystals on the wart with a band aid over them to hold them in place. After only a few days doing this once a day I noticed it turning black like a scab sort of. Then I quit treatment shortly after that and it healed up perfectly no scar like the one I fried off with the wood burner and worked so quickly and cheaply. I thought about marketing this solution but after finding this site I figure it is good for people to know. As for the person with them on the bottom of their feet, perhaps you can sand the tops down and soak your feet in warm water with epsom salt diluted in it. Worth a shot. Good luck.
Have tried many different natural treatments for warts but have found that the essential oils of lemon, teatree, myrhh, lavender, carrier oil of calendula and herbal tinchure of thuja in a mix applied to the affected area works really well.
My grandmother has always told us that her mother used to rub the slime of a European black slug on her warts and she used that remedy on us too when we were little.I remember one particular nasty one on my finger that gave me a lot of grief over autumn, winter and spring and I couldn't wait for the first warm summer rains for the little gastropods to reappear. I don't recall how long it took for the warts to die as that was the last thing on an 8 year old's mind but die they did and quickly too.
Unfortunately we don't live in Europe anymore but every time I go and visit I rub one all over my hands and fingers.
It works, somehow.
I had little warts on my hand for a few years and finally got sick of looking at them. After trying every alternative treatment that I could find I went to a dermatologist who told me that warts are caused by a virus which is usually fought off by a properly functioning immune system. After a few times of getting liquid nitrogen treatments to try to freeze them off with no luck, I read a book on cleansing and detoxifying and tried a couple of 24 hour water fasts, one per week on a Saturday. after the second fast I thought that I noticed a reduction in size of the warts so I did 2 more fast on the next 2 weekends. By the end of my 4th fast the warts were almost completely gone. I did not do any more fasting but my warts were completely gone in 2 more weeks.
I can vouch that fig "milk" works on warts. Tried it on my husband when a fig planted itself in the yard. :-) The wart will begin to shrivel at first application. If repeated 2-3x per week, it takes longer but works, too.
Fig Leaf Milk
The most popular Wart remedy in the middle east is the milk of the fig leaf. My daughter had a little wart on her pinky. THe doc froze it off, it came back 5 times bigger and jumped to the other finger. We applied the milk from a fig leaf everyday for 3 weeks. All the warts shriveled and died. Very popular remedy. Just find a fig plant and cut the leaf off at the base of the stem and apply the milky substance on finger and let dry. Works wonders after about 2-3 weeks of daily application.
My daughter suffered from warts for years. I found that using vitamin. A 25,000 IU from fish oil got rid of them. She had them all over her face, hands, and feet. Most we're gone within a month or 2. She is 12 and did not always get ever spot. The one next to her eye took about 6 months. She didn't like the oil close to her eye. She put it on at bed time and she did smell fishy at night but the smell was gone the next morning. Just poke a whole in the soft gel and rub on.

I am looking for a natural cure for flat warts that cover large surfaces of the legs. Taping banana peels or cotton balls does not work as affected surface areas are too large. Is there something to take internally or some sort of topical remedy that can be applied over large areas uncovered (can't wrap up the legs in tape or cotton! ). I would be grateful for a cure!
I'd had a wart on the ring finger of my right hand for years. I tried freezing, treatments, peeling it off but it always came back. Finally I tried fulvic acid in a 350x concentration. I would just put a drop on the wart 2-4 times a day and cover it with a band aid. I would peel or grind off the dead skin with an emery board. after a few weeks the wart was dead. I still have the dead flesh where the wart was in my finger but it hasn't grown back after 3 months.
Any tips on how to get rid of the remainder of that flesh from the wart below the surface?
Abrade the exact spot exposing soft fresh skin. Slice fresh garlic and tape to said spot. Change two-three times daily wear sock, again at night with fresh application. (this if from my (traditional medicine doctor) naturopathic doctor. Keep it clean and as skin softens remove to expose fresh layers. Abrade with file, clippers, pumice file, the pumice is explicitly for limited use, discard after warts and get a new one. You must be meticulous!!
Improve diet, include bicarbonate and lime water.
