My 8 year old daughter had a total of 17 warts of varying sizes covering her hands. Our family physician told us about a retired dermatologist acquaintance who swore by this method to remove warts. Slice the leaf from a jade plant so that the juicy succulent part is exposed. Tape or bandage it to the wart (we put it on the first wart that appeared, which was now the biggest, and had combined with one or two more warts to create this huge wart along the side of one thumb, which we called the "mother wart"). We taped the leaf on that wart only, at bedtime, for about 3 nights, and then kind of got busy, forgot, and stopped doing it. During the next week, while washing her hands, ALL of her warts had simply died and started falling off - with no sign whatsoever that any of the warts had ever existed. I've told several friends who tried it with the same results. The strange thing is that we treated only the "mother wart" - and all of them fell off at the same time. Amazing!


Jaggery

My son had what we thought to be a callus on the sole of his foot. The doctor said it was a plantar wart and that there was no definite cure apart from expensive laser treatment. The internet recommended putting duct tape over it or salicylic acid. Nothing worked. An african friend said to try jaggery. Warm the jaggery in a spoon over heat and apply while warm to the wart when going to bed. Cover with gauze held in place with micropore tape. Remove in the morning. Do this for about 4 months, sometimes more sometimes less. My son's fell of after 4 months and left an impression which disappeared after a week.

Seed warts on hands...

Just read about banana peels getting rid of warts. I have a cleaner remedy for seed warts on the hands. I started getting these seed (tiny) warts when I was 15. I tried a few OTC remedies that didn't work. By the time I was 45 all the first three (largest)knuckles on both hands were covered by one big wart. One bled sometimes. I finallly talked to my doctor about them and he said to wait until he got his lazer because they were too deep. In the meantime, I attended a seminar put on by a master herbalist and someone in the audience asked what to do about seed warts. She said to take the inside of a lemon rind and rub them each night and in less than a week they'd be gone. I tried it on my left hand first and to my amazement, they started to fade with the first application. After five nights they were gone and and skin was as normal as if I'd never hand them. Then, because I've read that sometimes they go away on their own, I tried the right hand, one finger at a time and the same thing happened. One by one, the warts went away as I did each finger, and they've never returned. And I lived with those ugly things for 30 years and lemon rind got rid of them in no time. I don't know if it works on any other type of wart.

What exactly do you mean by the "inside of the lemon rind"? How long was it in contact with the warts? Did the warts stay gone? Thanks.

Lugols iodine for wart:

My son over a long period slowly developed a wart. At first it was a hard bump, but skin colored, and not really bothersome, so I didn't know what it was. Eventually it turned very hard and brown, so diagnosis. Read through all warts postings, gave two zinc from food capsules, pinched the flesh from either side of the wart, these actions both boost immune system and show where the fight is needed. On two occasions about a day apart I had him sit awkwardly so I could put drops of iodine to saturate and allow them to soak in before moving. About 10 mins then dry enough to move.

Wart fell out cleanly a couple days after second treatment.

Matches, or a heated nail is a great treatment for warts. About as painful as freezing but works better! 10 seconds of sharp pain and the wart is gone, better than three times daily application of acids or other treatments that may or not work. Causes a localised blister that seperates the wart and surrounding flesh from the lower layers. 100% success rate if you can stop it from returning! I've used it several of mine and works great! Only struggles on the soles of my feet where the skin seems to be too thick. Might need more heat but candles with nails and matches might not get all the way through!

Hi, Just wanted to say matches worked for my son who had warts on his hand which were spreading all over his hand. We had applied the prescription the Doctor had prescribed which was salicylic acid 80% paste at night and then in the morning used razor blade to take the top of them off. They were like seed warts. Well it wasn't getting rid of them. Just really made the skin soft so that we could razor the top layer off. One area had like a whole bunch of warts with like seeds under skin that was razored off. Well, what happened was, it would not stop bleeding in that area after taking of the top layer of warts off. We used the stick matches and lit them and blew them out and then put them on the bleeding area which stopped the bleeding. We had to use several of them. We did this just one time, but were very surprised because in about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks they were gone. What happened was amazing. The other warts on his hand which we DID NOT put the match tip on disappeared too. It was almost like, the area that was the worst that had like a cluster of warts was the mother wart area and when it was killed, the others disappeared too. The big area we did this to was on the palm of his hand (the area between his thumb and finger.) He also was taking Vitamin C , 1000mg daily for immune system. But I know it was the stick matches that made them disappear.

My son had a rather large plantar wart that was growing in the callous on the outter edge of his big toe. Nothing was working, but we soaked match heads in water for a few minutes, just to soften the sulphur enough to spread. Twice a day with a loose bandage (tight or even firmly attached hurt after a few minutes). Couple of weeks it was gone. Feet can be hard in the winter with boots and sweating. The sulphur didnt sweat off, it stuck to the wart, and I filed it whenever possible (a 5 year old generally is not patient enough to fuss over his feet). I didn't burn the match on his foot, thought he may freak, but matches were the only remedy that worked.

Wart cured with matches: My wife and I had fought for over a year to get rid of two warts on my daughters feet. Two trips to the doctor and several over the counter options, still nothing seemed to work. All other things would make the wart much smaller but would never make it disappear completely. Our neighbor told us about using wooden matches. Our application was slightly different than others I've seen described. We applied a small strip of duck tape over the wart with a hole in it to expose the wart. Essentially it is there to hold the match head in place. We cut the match head off and placed it in the hole. Lit the match and waited until it went out. Less than one week later the wart was gone and hasn't returned.

I can't believe this was even allowed to be posted!! I thought submissions were screened first to weed out the weirdos and plain stupidity?

To "G from SF,CA"....have you ever tried the match cure? Or used duct tape to alleviate a wart? Don't knock it unless you've tried it....and if it didn't work for you - OH Well, don't knock it anyhow. Didn't your momma teach you it isn't nice to call anyone 'stupid'??

The only form of stupidity I'm aware of is ignorance. If you had actually tried for yourself you would realize this isn't as crazy as you make it seem. I'm not injuring my child, nor myself, because the same technique worked for me.

EC: Sorry Corey, that nasty post from "G" should never have been posted on the site. Apologies.

I had a wart on my right pinky finger on and off for years. I used the commercial wart removers and the wart would always return. One day, I was complaining to my brother-in-law about the wart that kept returning. He told me to light a match and extinguish it. He told me when the match was cold to just rub it on my finger (where the wart was) and to do it a few times a day until the wart disappeared. Of course, I thought he was nuts, but I followed his instructions and quess what? The wart has not returned in over 30 years! Maybe this will work for someone. Thanks for all the great ideas on home remedies. I love your site. It's one of the best! P.S. Just use the commercial matches that you buy to light your stove or cigarettes.

I had thirteen warts on my hands and a planters wart on my heel. Dr.s could not get rid of them. I found the milkweed cure. tried it and it worked. I've since recomended it to many, including my own children. all with the same sucess. The easiest way we found to use it is to apply the milk from a milkweed pod to a bandaid and apply it once a day for two weeks to each wart to be removed. Guarantee this to work! The reason for the bandaid is two fold. First the milk is sticky and accumulates lint when exposed. The second is the milk dries white and is very obvious in a situation we would rather not be drawing attention to. Try it -- you won't be disappointed!

When I was a young girl, I had a wart on my knee. My Grandfather had me put the milk from the milkweed plant on my wart. I did this once a day for about a couple weeks. The wart disappeared and never came back!

I had a wart on my hand and I applied the milk from the milkweed plant a couple of times a day for a couple of weeks at the age of 10 and have not had a wart there since! That was 40 years ago!

I have had several warts on my face (more than 20). I went to many physicans In Ammman,Jordan .they used to say all the time that the Nytrogyn remedy is the only proper one .I applied it 5-6 times .the warts used to reappear and produce another ones. I paid the phyisicans more than US$300 .I also used Solycic acid .it was useless because the warts reappeared again .

I was quite frustrated ,did know where to go until I started using the internet searching for sheep home remedies .

Found out in the web that Banana peel,garlic oil and tee tree oil are the most appropriate home remedies .I ordered 100% oraganic tee tree oil from desert essence .
I used it 2 times daily .I used the garlic oil as well as 2 time aday. the banana peel was used once before sleeping.I just rubbed it on the wart.

on the same time i started to treat myself internally by taking Omega 369.
1.2 grams contains borage oil,flax seed oil and fish oil .that was essential for enhancing the Immune system .

the warts have been gone and have never returned back .Thanks 2 Allah

i read that warts need air to live, so I thought that perhaps cutting off the air supply would get rid of a wart I have on my arm, and one on my leg. I applied a coating of clear nail polish on the warts every day, and within a week I could see shrinkage of the warts. both are almost completely gone now... I hope this helps others.
