My son had a wart on his finger when he was about 3. We tried everything. It would never go away and eventually there was probably about 7 warts that had spread onto his finger. I found on the internet to take a garlic clove and slice a thin piece(s) and put it on the wart with a band-aid over it (it does burn, but it works!). Keep it on there & covered for 24 hours. After that, it should turn into a blister. At that point, the wart is gone. Then just treat the blister with ointment. The warts are gone and have never come back.
Bad idea! The garlic got onto the surrounding skin (how do you just keep it on the wart?) and my daughters wrist has blistered badly and is very sore!
My wart becomes hollow is it sign of dropping off? Please need your help...Thanks, pamela
I wanted to add my remedy for warts, but I don't see how to do that. If you cna add it for me that would be great, I really want to help others get rid of their warts too!
All I did was put one drop of undiluted grapefruit seed extrat on the wart each night and covered it with a bandage. I let it uncover the whole day and only used the GSE at night and withing one week it hade turn black underneath and fell off! Hope this works for others.
Grapefruit Seed Extract
I had good results using Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE). I put a small amount on the tip of a Q-Tip and placed it directly on the wart. Be careful not to get too much on the skin surrounding it, as it will burn. If the wart is in a place where it will get covered with clothing, I'd cover it up with a bandaid. This doesn't take long at all. Two or three days should be enough.
If you know a banana which you can eat right away. But you need the juice of it while it is still green and still growing. What you have to do is cut the green fruit (not ripe yet) while it is still in plant and put directly to your wart and will dissolve easily in just less than a week.
We call that banana here as our native "Tondan". Its not the one that we exported.
In the last year I had two flat warts appear on each index finger. My first attempt to get rid of them was to use duct tape for a week to soften them, then apply Black Walnut and ACV. ( I have used just AVC successfully in the past to get rid of a plantar wart that I had for 8 years! AVC got rid of it in a few weeks... Very painful weeks, but I was glad to be rid of it! )
The Black Walnut stained my skin, so I made the mistake of using a pumice stone every night to scrub off the stain, thinking that I would also be taking off the top layer of the wart. Eventually I stopped using the Black Walnut because of the stains and switched to cinnamon oil. I believe that the scrapping with the pumice stone actually spread the wart virus and my entire finger, between knuckles, began to show signs of a large, flat wart with several roots. I panicked! Unfortunately - my fingers also got very badly infected as a result. I ended up having to see a doctor who advised me to stop ALL treatments and use an antibiotic cream.
One of my fingers is very badly scared, the other healed, but still clearly had a flat wart... and recently two more popped up in the vicinity.
With oddly perfect timing I just got an eNewsletter from an herbal company I buy from (Dr. Christopher) and they suggested Redmond Clay. I could not find any, so I went with Green Clay ($9.99!). I mixed it with a bit of water, castor oil and several drops of frankensense. I applied before bed and wrapped it in cotton gauze. (make a batch and keep in an air-tight GLASS container. Do NOT use metal or plastic spoons to mix - use a wooden spoon! )
I could not BELIEVE the results!!! In the morning, the flat wart, clearly visible as a large red patch under the skin with several erruptions on the surface of my finger, had diminished by HALF!!! I was so excited that I applied a second treatment of the clay mixture and wore it the rest of the day. (it's very important to discard the clay after wearing it, as the clay's properties draw toxins OUT of the body and they collect in the clay. DO NOT REUSE! )
I forgot to do a third application before going to bed the second night... but upon waking have discovered that the red area, and the size of the flat warts continues to shrink, leaving healthy skin behind! I have just now applied a third dressing and already I can feel my finger throbbing very slightly and itching.
I am thrilled! This is much more gentle than ACV which previously really burned the skin on my hands and was very painful. I will continue to use Green Clay for all my skin issues down the road!
I used organic unpasteurized honey from the health food store to cure warts on my son's hands. You take a table spoon twice a day for two weeks. I recommended this to a friend who had warts and it also got rid of her sty she had for years near her eye.
I burned the wart on my forearm 30 years ago with the tip of my cigarette. I burnt it to the root on the spot. Unfortunately, I carry a light scar today. I think using a soldering iron may be better but I do not recommend this to anyone. Ask a doctor or a surgeon to do it for you because it plain works.
Hot Cigarette Tip
I had like 3 - 4 warts on my palm for over one year and it was annoying. I've heard about applying hot temperature to the tip of warts. I've tried a few times but it didn't help. One day I was really aggrevated, so I used really hot tip of ciggaret (red hot tip) and kept touching the warts until I've count till 10. (slowly) And I guess that was the secret. The really hot temperature was supposed to be applied long enough to kill the root of the wart. It was pretty painfull , and actually nothing changed. I forget about it, and one day I was in the bath for like 30 min. The skin was soft and I started to wipe my hands with a towel. To my surprize all of my warts started to come off with the piece of skin. And I saw whole warts, with the roots. My hand was clean. The point was to overcome the pain of the heat long enough and kill the warts by heat. I do not know if this method involved risk, so please consult a doctor before trying it.
I used 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide to try and remove some warts . I diluted it with one part distilled water . After using it twice by rubbing it on with a qtip within a week the small ones were gone . Like I literally woke up one and they were gone . I have a few more that I'll tackle here soon . I worked on them a few at a time . This stuff stings for about 3 minutes but it's not unbearable . Just feels like a bee sting and it's over before you know it . No scars no marks nothing . They are just GONE!!!
I had this wart on my finger for years and tried several remedies, including freezing it off. Nothing worked. I purchased 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide for another ailment but decided to try it on this wart.
Using one of those plastic bottles a prescription comes in, I mixed 3 oz of water and 5 eye droppers of the hydrogen peroxide. Whenever I thought about it, I soaked my finger in it for a few minutes. I didn't think it would work if the hp couldn't get to the wart through the thick hard skin covering it so I peeled some of it off. A week later the wart was gone. To be sure I kept the soaking up for 2 more weeks.
It's been 3 months and the wart has not returned. Other than peeling some of the skin off the wart, this was completely painless.
I had two plantar warts on my left heel and one on my right heel. I tried everything... Went to the dermatologist and had them frozen (Cryotherapy) at least a dozen times, to no avail. I tried banana peels, which looked like it might work, but didn't. I tried ACV, and that didn't work either. ACV was very painful but didn't work for me. I tried fresh squeezed garlic, fresh aloe, basil, and dandelion sap. I tried everything over a 3 year span, and none of those above mentioned therapies worked for me. I finally ordered 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide over the internet and I must say, 4 months later and I'm completely plantar wart free. The first wart (on my right heel) healed first, after about 3 weeks. The smaller one on my left heal took about 6 weeks, and finally the large one is gone after 4 months of using the hydrogen peroxide. Once a day, just on the wart itself, applied with a Q-tip, did the trick. Be very careful not to spill or get it on other skin areas and be persistent. Don't give up. I thought I'd never get rid of them.
I diluted 35 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide with distilled water to make 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. I used it on a wart type thing on my left pinky on the left side of the nail. I used a spray bottle to spray on it every 3 hours or so for about 4 or 5 days. I heard from another website that someone was healed of genital herpes with hydrogen peroxide. That is what gave me the idea to use it on my wart. I feel that it could of worked faster using some other products on the shelf but hey it still worked.
I had recently bought the 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and made the 3% with it using 1oz. of the 35% with 11oz. of water and my daughter who seems to not be able to get rid of warts put some on the warts and within days they fell off. I was simply amazed we had tried everything even the banana peels and have been to the doctor and had them frozen and they didnt go away from that so after years of buying stuff from the pharmacy to get rid of the warts I have finally found something that works. Hope it will be of some use. Love this site it gives lots of info...
