Banana Peel

Banana Peel cured my daughter's wart! For two weeks every night I would scrape the inside of a banana peel with a toothpick and apply just enough to cover the wart and cover with a bandaid. Each day it would turn a little more black. Last night she came running to me laughing that when she took the bandaid off, the wart just "popped off". That was the end of it. Thank you for this great remedy!!!!!

I had a plantar wart on my foot for 3 months. I thought it was just callous. I went to the doctor and she did the freezing treatment. That exposed the nerve cells of the wart but didn't really treat it. So I googled and found this banana peel treatment online.

I put the small banana peel with the inside of the peel on the wart, put the duct tape to hold it and leave overnight. In the morning, I would wash with warm water to remove the banana residue and scrub the dead skin using pumice stone. Don't overdo the scrubbing just enough to remove some dead skin. After doing this for 3 days I noticed that my wart shrunk and no longer hurts when I walk. It turned white and like everyone's observation it looks like it's dying.

I continued doing my treatment routine for 3 weeks. Yes, it takes a while but there's good progress. So after 3 weeks it became a scab. I went back to my doctor just to confirm if the wart is really gone. She removed the scab (brown dead skin) and now I just see the keratin or skin tissue. No sign of the warts. She did another freezing just to make sure it would kill any remaining virus.

The banana peel really helped! I laughed about it when I read this before but I'm telling you guys that this helped me a lot! I hope this helps the others too.

A few years ago I got a wart on my ankle that was so large it was wearing away at the back of my shoe, and would get torn up when I went to the gym. I tried everything...liquid nitrogen, OTC wart medicines, duct tape, garlic...nothing worked. I ended up here though, and read about the banana remedy. I rubbed the peel on the spot, and then taped/bandaged a small piece on the wart for a week. It started coming off within two days, and was completely gone in a week. My dad was in town and was VERY skeptical, so it was pretty exciting when it worked! I'm amazed!

Banana Peel cured a wart on my daughter's toe. The way i applied: Rub a piece of banana on the wart, then cover the wart with piece of banana peel and tie it with the toe using a bandage cloth. Just in 15 days, the wart disappeared.

Banana peel for plantar warts

I had a nasty case of plantar warts on my right foot (three of them) and I tried acids, vinegar and duct tape for months before deciding to try banana peels. All I did was cut up a bit of banana peel, put the inside of the banana peel on the wart, tape it on with duct tape, and live my life without thinking about the warts at all. I was rock climbing, surfing, running -- just doing whatever I wanted. I was changing the banana peel bits twice a day, and leaving them on at night. Two days of constant treatment later, the warts turned pitch black and literally just fell off my foot. I continued the banana peel for another 4 or 5 days to ensure all of the HPV virus in my skin would be dealt with soundly, and I'm happy to say that I am now 100% wart free for the first time in about a year!

Definitely go nuts with the banana peel cure AS SOON as you have a plantar wart. It's incredibly effective. The only down side (and this is true for the effective treatment of ALL plantar warts) is that afterwards you have craters where the wart used to be, and you have to regrow all the skin you would have had if not for the infection. So get plenty of neosporin and bandaids to keep your baby skin around the craters clean and protected while they heal.

A top notch cure! So simple, so easy, so much better than acid, burning, freezing or any of that nonsense :)

I taped banana peel to my 6yo son's wart on his foot after being told it was an Indigenous cure for warts in Australia and it worked within a week. No more warts appeared.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Honestly I had plantar warts for six months or longer. I believe I got the first one from a pedicure. Eventually I had 3. Occasionally I would try the salicylic acid pads - but after a couple boxes -they irritated my feet - killed the healthy surrounding skin - and never seemed to affect the warts. My doctor did not offer much help - she told me freezing it out would be about as effective as the pads.

I was up at a condo in Whistler searching to get information on the internet and came upon your site. I had bananas and the wart pads from the expensive kit. I treated my warts for about 3 days - and GONE!

Did I say thank you? ;-)

Now I am going to this site for any ailments. Toe fungus (vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide soak followed by Tea tree and ) worked fast. Ted's cure for Acid reflux is working great (although because mine is mild I only drink it occasionally) and I am currently trying some natural cures for my husband's tinnitus. I may post feedback on those cures as well

Oddly when I went to find the original cure (banana peel) to add a comment the ACV cure came up but I really had to search for the banana peel. weird - and glad it was easier the day that I was looking for an answer - shouldn't the top answers show first?

Plantar Warts Banana peel treatment:

Back when I was 5 (before my parents even knew about the internet), I had some rotten little warts over my hands. A girl at school pointed them out to me, so I told my parents and they had heard the Banana treatment rumor. I told them "Ew I don't want to do that," so they gave me that option, or to go to the Doctors and endure hours of painful freezing and cutting. Naturally, being 5, I disliked pain and decided to go with the Banana.

I put band-aids over a small slice of banana peel over the warts each day and after a couple of days, all the warts were gone. They turned white and reduced in size.

Proper conduct for best results are:
1. Replace with a new bandaid when needed
2. Do not use the same peel for more than one session.
3. Let it air for maybe an hour or 2 a day

Almost 15 years later, they're still gone, and all thanks to bananas.

You must read this if you are thinking about trying the banana method. I give you my word that this will help your warts no matter how hopeless you feel about your wart. Never give up. Sometimes the simplest answers are the best ones for you.

I had a terrible plantar wart that was so big that it looked like a spider laid an egg in my foot. It was so painful to walk on I felt that I would rather crawl on the floor to get a cup of water rather then facing the pain of walking. It had been growing in my foot for about 3 months and I tried acid pads which only made it worse because the acid would irritate the healthy skin around the wart. It got worse because it started to grow taller and larger.

The only option the doctor told me was to surgically remove it. I booked the appointment only to find out that my appoint for surgery was a month and half away. I had nothing to do but wait for this idea of the doctor cutting me up. I was terrified of having a huge painful hole cut out of my foot so I looked for other options. Since I had nothing but time on my hands to kill I wanted to go on the web to see if there was something else I could consider doing. I found this website and read testimonial after testimonial and felt that I had nothing to lose.

I cut my first banana peel (non frozen)into a circle shape in the exact size of the wart and put a band aid over it with masking tape all around it so it would move at all. I had it on for 24 hours walking around with it and then sleeping with it on.

The next day I saw that the wart had turn white and change in quality like a sponge like surface. It use to be as hard as a rock but it was still painful after day one. I changed banana peels every day...sometimes twice a day so it was always a fresh peel.

One week later using the same procedure for the entire week the wart began to change color and reduce in size height wise. It also became less painful in about half of the area of the wart.

I did let it air out for a few hours to let the wart dry and begin the decomposing process. I don't think it should stay wet or moist all day.

After 2 weeks of this treatment the wart literally began to crumble off. I could see all the dead blood vessels inside the dead skin. I used my finger nail to peel off the dead skin and it all came apart without any pain. I have a small crater in my foot with no pain at all! I seriously had my doubts and felt silly along the way but it only took 2 weeks.

I thank God everyday that I found this website. I never appreciated walking this much before. I no longer feel that I have to have surgery and if you are even thinking about trying this method you should definitely definitely go for it.

All you need is a banana peel, band aid, masking tape, and patience

Good luck and God speed

Took a few weeks, but it worked! I've been dealing with a pretty big plantar wart on the heel for about 3 years and got two more on the same foot in the past 2 years. I tried freezing them several times with over the counter remedies, but I had the feeling that it only got worse. Then I came across this website and just had a go with the bananas. I used organic bananas and put a piece of the skin (the inside facing down) on each wart, and covered them with tape. I kept the tapes on 24/7 and renewed every time they got shifted. After about 2 1/2 months I was about to give up but then all of a sudden all three of the warts disappeared. It's amazing what mother nature can do! All it took was persistence and a lot of patience. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it, but three weeks ago I started taking an organic Acai juice blend from a health food store every morning.

A round, smooth wart on my temple was getting larger and puffier. After a couple of days of trial and error, my best result was then achieved by using a small piece of blackened banana peel big enough to completely cover the wart under a watertight bandaid (having adhesive on all 4 sides). I changed the banana and bandaid morning and night.

Day one: the wart was completely flat, a little whitish, and it was clear that the wart was comprised of 3 equal sections. Day 2: edges of the wart were black, granular and broke off when touched. It appeared the wart could perhaps be lifted away, but it could not. Day 3: the wart was GONE. Vanished. Not a trace remaining. The skin underneath was not red or raised. Today, a good year later, it has not returned.

If there's a next time, I'll use the following amendments, as others have suggested: first, lightly roughen the wart with a pumice stone or fingernail file to make it more susceptible to treatment. Then, apply scrapings from the peel's interior, so as to reduce the bulk of the peel.

This was unbelievably simple. Thanks to all those who shared their experiences.

I was looking for a natural cure for warts as I recently had one on my middle finger and decided to try the banana peel & duct tape. I cut out a piece of banana peel that covered the wart and taped it there with duct tape. The next day I removed it and got another piece of banana peel and applied the duct tape again. On the third day I was teaching so I just applied the duct tape for the next few days and then it was practically gone. It didn't turn black, but the wart/skin started to slough off. Now there's a slightly pink area and no wart.

# 1 cure. My grandson, age 11, had about 20 warts on his abdomen. Some had been removed by his Doctor but was a painful experience. I recommended he tape a small piece of banana peel to each wart. He did. Within a week they were all gone! Thanks you Earth Clinic! #2 Cure At the very first sign of a cold or flu put 3 drops of Peroxide in one ear. Lie still for 20 minutes. Repeat in other ear. A miracle!

My daughter had flat warts on her face for more than 4 years. She also had several seed warts on her hands, wrists, knees, and feet. I originally found this site while trying to find something to help her. After visits to her pediatrician and pediatric dermatologist we were frustrated. They just kept saying that the virus needed to run its course. She was starting junior high and these warts only exasperated her anxiety. The banana peel worked on her face in just 3 days! Imagine how ecstatic we were! Nothing seemed to work on her hands and feet though. Finally we found a cure that also worked in 3 days. A co-worker, who's father was a physician, said to soak her hands in very hot water with a couple capfuls of Lysol. After years of suffering, my daughter has been wart free for over a year.
