My daughter had a plantars wart on the ball of her foot. The thought of her going to dr to have it burned out or cut out as I did as a kid... I went on line and found..... NAIL POLISH. They said clear I used pink... The point is it cannot breath... So it dies.... I painted her skin on location every couple days.... Eventually it peeled and came right out! Took a few weeks.... Very happy... most important...PAINLESS
I had a wart on my finger and through my Dr. had it burned off, and it kept coming back(5 times) Aco-volunteer suggested I use clear nail polish and reapply it often, which I did and about 3 weeks later it was gone and knock on wood that was 4 years ago and its still gone. I think I suffocated it and I wish I had used that method and saved myself $100.00.
Hello Everyone * If you have a nasty plantar wart(s), PLEASE READ THIS! I'm 31 years old and I have had these nasty plantar warts on the bottom of my big toe for 2-3 years. It's the size of a quarter(in clusters) on my big toe and it has spread to my other toe's and on several other smaller spots on the bottom of my foot. They spread, because I would exfoliate my heels and also would try and "sand" down the wart.(PLEASE DON'T DO THIS) warts are very contagious. It would also swell up when it was wet. YUCK! I have tried everything possible to get rid of this nasty thing. OTC wart removers, Peroxide, Duct Tape, Alcohol and then I was watching an episode of "The Doctors" a lady had called in and said she had used clear "topcoat" finger nail polish on her sons wart and it was gone in a few days. So, I said what the heck.... I will try that too! I applied the nail polish every night after my shower. Every 3 days I would peel the layers of polish off the wart. Each time I would peel the built up polish off, you could see small layers of the wart coming off. I cont. to do this for a few weeks. I was not going to stop. Then as I notice each week how it was getting smaller, smaller and smaller. WOW I am so amazed and just estatic about this, IT"S COMPLETELY GONE!!! NO scarring, no markings, nothing....just normal clean toe! So Amazing, I just had to share this with others!
I noticed this wasn't mentioned. I use to have 2 warts near the base of my right thumb. They didn't hurt or irritate, but I hated that everone used to either cringe at them or ask me if the warts were painful when they saw the warts. The wart remover plasters never worked. I read from somewhere that nail polish can help to remover warts, so I gave that a try. I applied clear nail polish to the warts, repplying every so often to ensure that there was always a coating over the warts. The nail polish is a lot less noticable than a wart remover plaster is! I can't remember how long it took (probably just a month or so), but one day as I prepared to reapply the nail polish, I noticed that the warts were GONE. Not a single trace of them was left, and there was absolutely no scaring. The skin looked perfectly normal! I was so happy! It's been 3 years since then, and the warts have not come back.
I've tried various methods to get rid of warts for YEARS.more than 20. No, they don't always go away. Natural remedies/freezing/doctor's appointments...these all made them worse and more painful. I ended up speaking with a physician who told me that if you take a clean needle, poke it with holes til it bleeds, that my own natural immune system would take care of it. Since I had mosiac warts, the worst, on both my hands and suddenly my toes- I broke down and poked about three holes in the largest one on the bottom of my pinky toe. KILLED IT! AND THE 2 THAT WERE GROWING ON THE SECOND TOE! Gone!
I'll have to do my hands, one at a time but I know I have to soak them and soften them before I can break through them. Good luck.
For a big, stubborn wart on top of my big toe during sandal season, I tried everything. ACV, duct tape and many other suggestions seemed to work temporarily and then would just stop working. I read about getting your immune system to recognize the wart and attack it by poking it with a needle. I poked all around the wart with a sterilized quilting pin. I came at it from a sideways angle as if trying to remove a splinter. This was hardly painful at all. I did not poke it straight down! That would have hurt a lot and caused a lot of bleeding. I poked through the wart from many directions all around (holding the pin practically parallel to the toe), then put raw, unfiltered honey on it and wrapped it with a stretchy band-aid colored tape. I noticed a dramatic difference overnight! My immune system fought the wart from the inside, and the enzymes in the honey worked on it from the outside. I repeated this every two days until it was gone. It was gone in little more than a week! It worked so quickly. Most other remedies take at least a month.
I have had a flat wart on my leg since I was a kid. I understand that juveniles can get them. I never touch it, because I had a feeling that it could spread. When I got older, I got one on my forehead, and then one on the other side, not large, very unnoticeable. Sometimes they would itch. But then I had some life tragedies in the past couple of years. I'm sure my immune system dropped. The ones on my forehead got itchier and I started seeing little ones around them. Then one day I woke up and had one starting underneath my eye! Enough.
I came to this site and saw oil of oregano, and black walnut mentioned in different posts. I'd tried black walnut with great success when I had a bout of ringworm from a stray cat I petted. I applied oregano oil daily, about three times with a qtip. I did it on the one underneath the eye, and the ones on the forehead. Daily without fail. The one underneath my eye was extremely new and dried up and died in about a week and a half. It felt like a scab, and just kind of rubbed off. The same has happened with these ones on my forehead. I can still see them slightly but there's no height to them at the surface. For the black walnut, I usually put that on at night before bed. That stuff stains, so let it dry before you lie down and maybe put a handtowel under the area you've applied it to.
You can feel the black walnut stinging the area. The oil of oregano burns like crazy, even with the amount that's on a qtip. Be super careful around the eye. Don't apply above the eye so that sweat could make it drip into the eye.
I am going tomorrow to a dermatologist to see about having a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot removed. I've had this thing for a really long time and enough is enough.. So I'm biting the bullet. My friend's father is a herbal doctor and he suggested since I've had it as long as I have, go ahead and get it removed but to follow up with taking a 2 a day regimen of olive leaf oil for 3 months to address the virus in my system.
Does anyone have experience with taking olive leaf oil?

My two younger boys had planter warts that they got while doing martial arts. I took the youngest one to the doctor who sent me to another doctor and he recommended cutting them out, which I agreed to do, but oh did it look painful. It left a huge hole in his foot. A year or so later the older one complained of his feet always hurting and when I looked at his feet saw huge clusters of planter warts. By this time someone had told me about their great success with olive leaf extract. I bought some and had him take 2 capsules 3 times a day. All the warts were gone in less than a month.I think he told me warts are viral and need to be fought from the inside out. Wonder if anyone heard about this before ,but it worked for us.
After reading a comment about this method to get rid of warts here I tried.... But it didn't work! Several times a day I would rub some onion on two warts, I did that for almost two weeks but I saw no changes. They are small so it wouldn't be difficult to get rid of them, I suppose, they are very flat but nothing seemed to happen so I stopped.
I used onion to treat my warts, they dissapeared and never got any warts again. It is fairly easy and if you do it properly, takes only a few days of treatment. I simply applied fresh onion juice on them. If you cut an onion slice and take a layer and break it in 2, there will be fresh juice juice coming out of there. Squeeze that right on the wart, make sure you soak it in Juice. You can also rub the wart with that side of the layer where you made the cut, where the fresh juice is. Just let it dry, no Bandage needed. Now your skin will smell so if you have to go to work, do it at night time. Ideally you should do it 2-3 times a day, but once a day will work too, it'll take a bit longer to fall off. Put the onion on the fridge and next time cut a new slice. The secret is to not just rub the onion on it, but make sure you soak the wart in juice or rub the juicy part on it. I only repeat this because I gave the advise to a friend and he was not doing it properly. When he started applying the juice, the warts on his hand and foot were gone in a few days, after trying lots of remedies with no results. This treatment leaves no scar and there is no pain. I hope this helps.
I have been fighting nail fungus for about 25 years. I have tried all of the prescription meds. Penlac, which is very expensive, is the only one that sometimes works. The others did not work at all and can cause problems with the liver. I cannot wait to try the ACV treatment.
Regarding warts. My daughter had a couple when she was very young. We went to a couple of dermatologists who used the usual treatments that hurt her and did not work. I looked for a natural remedy on-line. I found an onion remedy that works everytime.
Take a small bit of onion (about the size of the wart)
crush it and place it on the wart
use tape or a bandaid to keep it on for about 24 hrs.
when you take it off, you will see that the onion actually eats through the wart and burns it off.
NOTE: only put enough onion on to cover wart or your healthy skin can get hurt.
Good luck to all
You will get a scab and when it heals the wart should be gone.
We tried the banana peel remedy for removing Warts for almost 2 months, but with no effect. Our doctor suggested soaking Orange peel in white vinegar for 1 week (in a sealed jar) and then applying the peel (white side down on the wart) with a bandaid at night (and removing in the morning). We did this for about a week and got dramatic results, within two weeks all the warts (that had been there for months) were gone. We tried everything from freezing, duct tape, banana peel etc. This was the only thing that worked.
My daughter had two warts appear at age 6, one on her finger and one on foot. At age 8, we were fed up with over the counter remedies. We waited a year after her doctor treated with the 'frozen method', they came back bigger and spread on her fingers.
I used Oregano Oil dabbed on a cotton swab and they were killed and never returned after two weeks.
Warning....Oregano Oil is a hot oil to the skin and can burn the skin if too much is applied or rubbed on skin. Only use directly on the wart with a q-tip. It works! Use twice a day for a week or two. Hers went away after two weeks and did not return. It worked for us and she has been free of them for 2 years.
Remember Oregano Oil can be hot once on the skin or burn the skin. Do not rub on skin. Only use a Q-Tip!! The frozen method the doctor used actually was more painful our daughter mentioned and what we witnessed then the slight sting on the area from the oil. It must kill the fungus at the root of the wart. They just fell off about two weeks later and haven't returned.
Look it up as it has other uses as well. I believe it is an anti-fungal.
My daughter had something on her hand that we assumed was a blister because she was riding her bike a lot. But she would pick at it and it would bleed and such. We finally realized it was a wart. (Perhaps a plantar's wart.) We had a bottle of diluted oregano oil on hand. (We bought it that way. It is 1 part oregano oil and 3 parts olive oil. It was quite inexpensive.) She put 1 drop of this solution onto the wart once or twice a day for a week or ten days or so and it is gone now!
