My son had a huge wart on his thumb. We tried the over the counter liquid, that didn't work. Went to the dermatologist and they tried freezing it, then they tried using a laser to get rid of it. Nothing worked. I found information on your website to try banana peel and I am happy to report IT WORKED! At night we took a piece of banana peel and put it on the wart, flesh side down, and put a band aid on it to keep it in place. He did not wear it during the day. We did this for about 2 weeks and the wart is completely gone! (I froze the banana peel to keep it fresh.)
Hi, I have been trying the banana peel method on my daughter for about 10 days and it seems to be working! She has about 20 flat warts on each hand. The doctors would not listen to me and told me to be patient, that they would go away after 2 years maximum. Well, she's had them for five years now!!! I have really been encouraged by your posts and I am going to keep trying for another few weeks. We just tape the banana peel over the back of her hand, duct tape, and put a sock over it.
I have had about 35 warts on my right hand for the last two years! My mum and I tried everything we could to cure them. When my Mum found this website, we were desperate to get rid of my warts by now and would try anything so we said we'd give the banana peel a go.We rubbed the inside of the banana peel on my warts and stuck smaller pieces(1/2 inch squares) on with band-aids and left it on over night.To make sure they stayed on, we put on a glove and an elastic band over the glove. After about two weeks all my warts were gone! We know other peple who have warts too and we recomended banana peel to them.
Hello, This is Rajalakshmi Swami from Pune, India. I read with interest your write-up on "Application tips" for plantar warts. I am having a chronic wart on the sole of my left foot, under the third toe for the past 30 years. After reading about the banana peel as a permanant cure for plantar warts, I have been applying the peel for the past two months but there is only 10% effect. As you have said, the banana peel does not seem to work for all plantar warts. Then I read youre feedback on this and became interested in trying out white vinegar application. I have a few questions to ask you:
1. What should be the exact concentration of the white vinegar? (The one that i found in the local market is 3.75 ml. of acetic acid in 100 ml water.
2. I found the non-fruit white vinegar. Will this do?
3. When should it be applied?
I would very much appreciate an urgent reply.
Banana Peels are removing warts. Three days ago my son's torso warts were irritated, inflamed, and spreading. I tried salyic acid on them and he screamed in pain, cleaned acid off. We had the doctor freeze his original 3 warts last fall, the procedure hurt and the warts spread. I read an article about banana peels in one of my favorite publications and had discussed it with my 7 year old a couple of weeks ago. As he recovered from the acid incident he agreed to do the banana peel. We cut a quarter sized piece of peel and secured it over his 2 original warts using an adhesive bandage. The next day one wart was completely flat and the residue from the wart was on the peel. We changed the dressing applying a new section of peel large enough to cover 4 warts. The next day the other original wart was completely flat. We are now working on a wart closer to the armpit. My boy is comfortable wearing his banana peel to school, is feeling no pain, and the rest of the family is astounded that this is even working as quick as three days in.
A few months ago I noticed a cauliflower shaped wart on my upper ear which appeared to grow over time. I've used this website for natural remedies in the past couple of years so I knew if there was a remedy that worked I would find it here. Anyway, a few days ago I decided to try the banana peel on my ear. I applied and left on overnight and change the next day; each day the wart got darker and shrank by the 3rd day a huge piece of the dried wart fell off! There is only a tiny piece left and I've applied another piece of banana peel this morning and anticipate the wart to be totally gone by in a couple of days. I have other warts on my neck that I'm about to try this remedy on!
Finally. I think (I hope) I got rid of that plantar. It really spread to about 7 circles around the scar from the surgical burn from 6-2007.
I had to use a product called Wart Wonder. I can't remember how I came across it.... maybe on a Google Search? I started using it in around 10-2008 and after using most of a bottle of the regular strength I found the Super-Potent on ebay. Maybe it's a common product but I never heard of it before. It took many months, but the hematomas finally stopped appearing and the skin is soft and clear. Hopefully got rid of the cursed thing. I probably spent about $50 or $60 for the combined costs of the two bottles. Not cheap, but certainly worth the expense. One time my son licked the bottle cap (he's a baby) and I was worried so I called the company and spoke with the owner and she said not to worry, just rinse his mouth out with water and that it's all herbal stuff inside.
Probably like the folks that had success with bananas, Wart Wonder seemed to work best when rubbing it in while watching a movie or whatever. The Super-Potent seemed to work the best. If I had to "do it over again" I would only get the strongest potency. I guess my plantar was too stubborn for a banana, I'm just glad I finally found something that worked. Just tonight while looking for this site I also saw an electronic device that supposedly kills warts in three minutes. I'm not sure how, or if it works, but if I had to go through this again I'd probably make the investment in that item. Hopefully for the "Nays" like me who were trying to deal with this for years and felt at the end of their hope this may help.
It makes my heart glad to read about how this little girl was healed. Being a mother of a chronically ill child; I can relate to the suffering and worry that was experienced. I will definitely recommend this remedy to others...so thankful this site exists. As to the skeptics, we are under DR care, but this site offered us ideas to try that were less invasive and more effective for certain antibiotic perpetuated, spreading, painful, long term health issues.I never would have known to try these remedies if i didn't find this site.
WOW THIS REALLY IS A MIRACLE. It really does work 100%. My daughter is 4 years old and was covered in warts they started as a small cluster in the crook of her arm within a month they had spread right down her arm. I took her to the doctor who said to leave them alone they would go within two years. After 4 months she was covered down the whole of one side of her body.It was hard to see any skin. After numerous visits to the doctor and specialists they were still growing but by now they were catching on things and bleeding and were very sore. I couldn't take her swimming or have any of her skin showing they looked so bad, children can be so cruel. I did try other things first like Wartner but they didn't work and just hurt, but then i found this site. Thank you to all who left messages or i wouldn't have tried this. I put strips of banana skin on the warts at night held on by very large dressings because there was so many and in the morning we washed the skin with lemon juice. At first they seemed to get worse and i did think what am i doing but i am so glad we persevered. Some nights her skin was to sore so we just had a few nights off then start again. Banana skin at night washed off with lemon juice the next morning. It took about a month in total some just disappeared others a white core came to the surface so i just pulled it out with tweezers they did bleed a bit but then i just again washed with lemon juice and they dried up.All the warts have gone.Today we have just returned from seeing the skin specialist who can not beleive her skin. Even the doctor could not deney it works he said he had heard of this before, so why not tell people! I have been told they will not come back now they have gone. You will need to use bio oil afterwards to help the skin to heal with no scars, but my little girls skin is back to being beautiful, only people with warts will ever understand the pain of seeing your child so upset because people will not play with her because of the warts. Please if for nothing else other than curiosity or your at the end of your tether try this banana skin wrap.Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave good advise i will be eternally greatful.
I tried it on genital warts. They were all gone after 2.5 weeks. The key is to use peels from green bananas and to wear them almost the whole day. I wrote a long piece of my case on this site explaining everyting in detail.
An easy way to apply the banana is to scrape the inside of the peel with a small screw-driver or something else with a blade a little wider than the wart. The scrapings can be applied as a poultice, as opposed to rubbing the banana peel directly on the wart. This made the application of the peel to the warts much more convenient for me and I was able to leave the scrapings on the wart until they dried. That said, after several weeks the cure did not seem to be working so I moved on to using white vinegar, which completely cured me in about two weeks. There are about 100 different types of warts so perhaps that explains the apparent lack of effect of the banana cure on my particular variety. I had used salicylic acid for about 4 months before trying either cure and while it removed the wart the wart kept coming back from the roots.
Banana Peels for Warts: My son had clusters of about 20 warts on both feet. We tried everything from over-the-counter medicines to having the frozen (three times). Nothing worked and they seemed to be getting worse and more painful. The doctor said the next step would be having them surgically removed. Out of desperation, I looked online and found this remedy. My son and I decided to give the treatment one month. Well, after one month the warts weren't gone but much improved. We decided to alternate nightly the acid medicine from the doctor with the bananas and after two weeks, the warts are completely gone. I've been recommending this to everyone I know with a wart.
Banana Peel feedback: My husband has had a large plantar wart on his heel for the last 3.5 years. Recently we've started using Potassium Iodide for various ailments, and one day I decided to soak some cotton and tape it to his foot. Within 2 days he took it off and said it turned black. He had gone out of town so he didn't have the pot. iodide to keep applying. When he go home he started again with Pot Iodide and then banana peels for the last 3 weeks. It's mostly gone! He's going to persist a few more days because he wants to be certain, but it's amazing. he had been to the dr. at least 5 times to have it frozen and it never worked. Love this remedy!
After almost 6 years of embarrassing warts on my fingers and trying pretty much every solution in the book, it was finally banana peels - of all things - that saved me. When the first wart appeared on the middle finger of my left hand, I went to my doctor and he said I should just leave it because they tend to disappear on their own. Of course it didn't disappear. It multiplied. I ended up with bigger clusters of warts and they just kept getting worse. Over the past 6 years, I have tried each of the following remedies:
- Wartner (an over-the-counter wart freezer). Painful, but no result, even after multiple attemps.
- Omega 3 (Fish) oil directly applied to the warts and then taped over at night. It didn't feel like anything was happening, because nothing was. I tried this for about a month.
- Having them burnt/frozen at a skin cancer clinic. This was incredibly painful and I would often feel faint afterwards because the freezing was so 'deep'. Even though the warts would turn into blood blisters than hardened and then peeled off, they just came back as if nothing had happened each and every time. I had this done at least 6 times across the course of two years or so.
- Apple-cider vinegar dipped into cotton wool and taped over with bandaids at night. This felt like it was doing something, because my fingers began to sting and it made it hard to fall asleep. The warts would 'swell' and become very white, but even after doing this for a month, there was no real difference, so I gave up.
- For a long time I tried simply wearing bandaids on them 24/7, partly to save myself the embarrassment, and partly because I had read that you could kill them this way. It didn't work.
- Laser-treatment at a cosmetic surgery. This was by far the most expensive treatment, but at this stage I didn't care so long as it worked. It cost 100 for each visit, and I visited three times. It was effective for a new wart on my knee, but did nothing for any of the warts on my hands. After even the cosmetic surgeon expressed doubts that it would work, I turned to:
- Bazuka wart-remover (available in the UK). This was another over-the-counter remedy, and I had to modify the directions a little bit to make it work. Instead of applying it every night and peeling it off every morning, I found that if I left it on two days straight, let it get a little wet underneath the bandaid when I had a shower, and then peeled it off afterwards, that worked better. It does seem to have some effectiveness, but it makes your skin very dry and painful. It worked for one wart, but not others, and it was around this time anyway that I discovered:
THE BANANA PEEL REMEDY. By this stage I had all but given up. After years of expensive, smelly, painful and messy treatments, I figured I didn't have much to lose by turning to the ridiculous. I tell you what, I am SO glad I found this web-page with all the testimonials on it, and I cannot believe that I didn't come across it sooner.
It WORKS. It really works. I started cutting the inside of a banana peel (unfrozen) to a small wart on my thumb overnight first to see what would happen, and when it started to look different, I decided I'd try it on some of the others. I couldn't believe it when I started to notice a huge different almost immediately. They didn't turn black, as some people have had happen, they just SHRANK.
They are almost completely gone now. It has taken about 6 weeks, but I would say in another two or three weeks they will have disappeared completely. There is no scarring, there are no bad smells, it isn't the messiest of treatments out there, and it works really quickly.
Thank you so much to all the people who have left messages on this site. I am really very grateful. I guess most of you would understand how freeing it feels to finally be able to show my hands in public! I had to devise all sorts of ways of covering them up over the years, and it's hard to break that habit. I find myself trying to hide my hands, and then realise I don't really have to anymore!
I am just curious to know if anyone tried this with genital warts, and if so, did it work?
Banana Peel Feedback
I think the banana peel is excellent for drawing the black dots out of the plantars wart. It seems to work like a poutice. My 9 year old daughter had the plantars wart frozen at the doctors surgery at least 5 times to no avail. I also spent $30 on the over the counter freezing method and that was a waste of time and money. I decided to do some research of my own and quickly found this website. We diligently applied the small squares of banana peel to the wart at bed time covered with a bandaid and a sock. After the the first night I was amazed the next morning when I saw how much of the black had been drawn out of the wart. I continued with this method for about a month and then finished the treatment off with some compound W. We are very pleased to say the wart has gone. The banana peel was amazing, but I do think the compound W is required at the end.
I have had a wart just below my knuckle (on the finger side) for about 2 years. This wart was small but vey painful. I tried using the paint-on wart remover stuff for 5 weeks. Didn't work. I had it frozen twice. Didn't work. I was about to make an appointment to get it cut off when I happened on this forum.
I had nothing to lose so I cut a small square of banana peel and taped it over the wart (white part down) each night for 5 nights. I didn't think anything was happening (or it might even have felt a little worse) so I stopped. About three days later the skin around the wart dried up and fell off along with most of the wart. A few more days later, the rest of it dried up and fell off. Now it's difficult to tell where it was and the area is no longer painful.
I didn't think this would work at all but it worked for me. You have nothing to lose if you try it!
Banana Peel Feedback
Warts cured with banana peel: I was skeptical about the banana peel as a patch to my wart on right foot. Just had a liquid nitrogen freeze method, and boy that was PAINFUL!! My doctor said we need to repeat atleast 2 more times and he was still not hopeful that it will be gone. I was unable to even walk properly before and after the freezing process. It took 3 days after the freezing, for me to walk properly. So could not imagine the thought of doing this 2 more times of the same.Read this banana peel and thot, what do i lose? It aint any chemical that might affect me adversely, its a simple banana peel!, so went home and applied a small piece of peel, and put a tape across it and slept. Did not feel much differnce in first two days, but i still continued for a week, boy that was magical, my pain was almost gone and i was able to run on treadmill normally. Encouraged by results i did for another 10 days and the wart is gone including the mark! Now sometimes i have tough time finding if it was right or left foot! lol. Thanks to the banana peel advice, it works very goood.

I discovered 3 little warts on the knee of my 7 year old son a few weeks ago. I checked on Earth Clinic and found the wart remedy. A few weeks later and the warts are gone. My son is delighted and I would definitely recommend this for anyone with warts. Simple and painless. Thank you EC
EC: You didn't say, so we're guessing you tried the popular banana peel remedy for warts. Please let us know if you tried something else!
Banana Peel Feedback
Banana peel for warts: I normally don't leave feedback, but felt I had to on this subject. I was recently looking for an alternative way to get rid of a wart on my daughter's foot. She had a plantar wart last year on her heel. Went to the doctor and did the freeze off method, by the way, she did not like that at all!!! It was very painful for her. So now this year there is one coming on her big toe. So I came across this website and read the reviews for the banana peel for warts. While reading I'm thinking to myself that this is crazy!!
So I gave it try, why not anything is better than the freeze off thing. It has now been 3 days and the wart is going away, it's shrinking!!!!!
I clean her toe right before bed then take a piece of the banana peel and rub it on the wart until well coated. Then cut another very small piece off and put it on her toe with a bandaid around it overnight. In the morning take the bandaid off clean the toe off. I do this everynight before bed. Now on day 3 and everything is looking great. The wart is flat and the inside is drying up.
Thank you for this website and all the other reviews!! My daughter is very thankful!!
We joke with her now and call her banana toe!! ha ha ha
