Had a plantar as a boy (maybe 12) which a doctor scraped once a week for some weeks and applied acid. After many months a blister formed under the wart and it disappeared. Fast forward 20 years....

Had a plantar on my foot for some two years now. My dermatologist scraped it, froze it and had me put salcylic (sp?) acid on it for months. After many months of band-aids and treatments, no joy. Eventually I went to a dermatologist who had me put Lazer Formaldehyde on it for months to "shrink the wart". He felt that it made good progress and eventually used some heat device to burn the wart. He said it wouldn't leave a scar but it left one. That was June 2007 and I was OK until February 2008 when, around the edges of the scar, the wart reappeared.

Prior to the surgery I had tried duct tape, Apple Cider Vinegar, the acid, Epsom salts, hot water, religiously for weeks, one after the other, all to no avail. I wish I had just tried the banana cure!!! I could have saved SO MANY HOURS of driving back and forth, waiting around at the doctor, having the uncomfortable surgery, etc.

Before I continue, I must say that I sympathize with all the people who had no success with the bananas. I have taken some peel off of the same banana for the past four nights (just slicing off a little with a sharp knife from the skin... I may have to freeze it or eat it tomorrow as it's looking pretty ripe) and after showing and cleaning my foot, applying the little slice of banana peel to my foot and leaving it on until the following night with a band-aid on top.

After 24 hours it looked mushy, not sure if there was too much change.

After 48 hours (last night) a big piece of skin came off from on top of the original scar area.

Tonight marked 72 hours. The little black spots (hematosis?) are all gone. There are three little craters to the side of the original surgical scar area that just sort of "opened up" on my foot where I think the little black dots were. It's amazing. The skin looks pink and healthy. I am going to keep putting banana peels on my foot to see if it will fix the scar area somewhat. Want to make sure that everything is dead/gone. Man oh man, this is so easy. I hope it works for good. Good luck to everyone and God Bless those who figured out this cure

For all of you who e-mailed the Nays and Aays using Banana Peel. Banana peel can be used for many skin diseases. The right way is to rub the inside of the banana skin repeat the inside of the banana skin. No need to freeze or hold it with a duct tape. You must continue rubbing (use may have to use many insides of the banana skin)until the itch or lession pains or scratches. Only stop when the pain or scratching stops. The pain or scratching is the bacteria that are fighting the ingredients inside the banana peel.

Hi all, We tried the banana peel with no success BUT when we froze the bananas in the freezer and gave it another go IT WORKED a treat. With in 2 days, one of my daughters warts had fallen off completely!!! The other two had reduced in size by almost half in this some time. Simply buy your bananas, chop into chucks, freeze in a plastic freezer bag and use what ever you need at the time! I used the inside of the skin and I put the skin on a piece of guaze and then taped it onto the foot. Next I lightly bandaged it up and then put a ankle stocking over it to hold it through the night. Good luck with trying this method, It worked for us and hopefully for you too. Regards Ian.

Great results applying banana peel to a wart. Wart was 3/8" in diameter, pink and mushroom-puffy. Used a waterproof bandaid to secure a piece of banana peel to it nightly. Wore it 24 hrs/day. By day 4, the wart was brown, flat and looked as though it would lift off. When I (very gently) tried that, tiny bits would crumble. On day 6, it was GONE! Seemingly dissolved. My skin is flat and red where the wart was, with a couple of pinhead-sized bumps in the center. Will continue treatment til they disappear.

My 7 year old had 4 plantar warts from our local pool where she swims twice a week and always wears deck shoes. I first tried the banana peel cure. She didn't mind it, I would cut small squares of banana peel put over the wart and cover with bandaids. Then I would make her wear socks to bed. I did this for several weeks. It did seem to moisten the warts, but often the peel slipped from the area where it should have been. Next I tried the ACV. I cut a cotton ball into quarters, soaked them in the ACV and then put it over the wart, covered it with bandaids and socks. I did this for about a week. She did not like this remedy as it was messy and smelly (according to her). So finally I tried the clear nail polish trick. I must say that the warts did start to turn brown right away with the banana cure and I used a Pumice stone to wear them down as often as I could, although she complained that it hurt. (I did find that some of the warts were growing bigger after the first 2 cures) I did the clear nail polish every couple of days for 2 weeks. Then I kind of ignored the wart problem as we have been really busy. Well last night, she came home from swimming and had a shower. I took the pumice stone to the warts (one had disappeared on its own) and the other 2 fell right out!! There is still a tiny one on her toe, but I do think it is almost gone. I did notice before her shower the warts were noticably smaller. I am so happy, thanks for the advice. If one thing does not work try another. We noticed the first wart when we were in Florida in November. It is now Feb, so it did take a while and a few different concoctions, but I am thrilled with the results. She is more upset that there are 2 small holes in her feet where the warts used to live then she ever was about having the warts in the first place!! The skin will grow back and we now know how to deal with these warts.

I'm glad that I found this site because I had used a wart treatment medicine (acidic gel) prescribed by the doctor for more than a month with no results. I used a small piece of banana peel, put it on the plantar wart for about 8 hours, washed it off, air dry, scraped it, put the wart treatment gel medicine, covered it with gauze. This was done every day. After using the banana peel method, the wart changed from a bump to a broad whitish bump which slowly flattened and the surface turned slightly' brown / black gradually. It also dried up and shrank a little bit. This combined method of using the banana peel and prescribed medicine was done for about 3 weeks. Finally the wart fell off. I was so happy. It took some time but worth it because the wart fell off without any pain.

Our 10 year old daughter had several warts around her foot and ankle, one quite large. We had tried loads of things without success. Saw your cure using banana peel and tried it. It took a couple of months (2-3) strapping on bit of banana peel over each wart every night but now all warts have completely disappeared. Thanks very much for tip.

MY DAUGHTER HAD 40 TO 50 WARTS BETWEEN HER TWO HANDS. I TRIED EVERYTHING AND THEN READ ABOUT BANNANA SKINS. EVERYNIGHT I CUT BANNANA SKIN AND RUB AND PLACE IT ON HER HANDS AND WRAP A BANDAGE AROUND HER HANDS AND LEFT IT OVERNIGHT. AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS I NOTICED THEY GOT SMALLER AND CONTINUED WITH THE NIGHTLY RITUAL. THEY WERE COMPLETELY GONE WITHIN 6 WEEKS. I HAVE NOT LOOKED BACK AND MY DAUGHTER WHO IS 9 YEARS REGAINED HER CONFIDENCE.

Thank you Earth Clinic, and all that have left testimonials about the banana peel cure. I developed what I thought was a callus on the bottom of my left foot, about two inches back from my little toe, right under the small bone that runs there.I used a solution to soften it, then sanded it, but to no avail. A friend suggested that it might be a planters wart. I had never heard of this, so I did some research and detirmend that it was a plantars wart, so the first thing I tried was an otc freez-off product, that did not work. I, being a firm beliver in natural cures, searched the web and found this site. One of the best days of my life!! I followed the advice of others, and tried the bannana peel treatment. AMAZING! I cut a small piece of green peel and taped to the wart on the evening of the first day. Not working the next day, I decide to leave it on for the day. That evening, I removed the peel and noticed that the skin around the wart was softening up, the wart appeared to be coming loose. I cleaned it up, then took a hot shower. I then redid the peel and tape before bed on the second night. The next mourning I removed the bandage, and to my suprise the wart was protruding above the skin line. I did not pick at it, deciding to let the peel continue to work its " magic". After a hot shower, I prepared to apply another piece of peel, but did not need to, the wart was gone!!!!!! In a span of less than 48 hours my wart was gone, and all that was left to do was sand down the caluse that had formed around the wart.To me this was a real life saver because I am a constuction worker, continually walking on freshly bulldozed ground that is a mess of broken ground and small rocks. The wart to me was near debilatating, causing my knee to buckle from the pain every time I steped on one of the rocks, which caused me to limp and focus on where my next step would land, averting my attention from what I was doing, not a good thing on a construction site. In closing, all I can say is that the bannana peel cure is the closet thing to a mirecal curs that I have ever witnessed, or been part of. It really works! Thank you all from the bottom of my foot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried the banana peel method for my 10 year old son's warts. There were about 40 of them particularly on his left hand -inc. two very large masses - he was having a really difficult time at school. We had tried all the usual standard treatments and were about to get them cut out and after only one week of using the peel every night they have gone!Swimming in a salt water pool seemed to quicken the effect. They didn't blacken that much - just shrank back with minimal scarring.Thank you so much to all who took the trouble to post your comments - it has been a true miracle for us.

My son had a painful pea-sized Plantar Wart on the ball of his heel. Using the prescribed Salicylic Acid paste for 3 months achieved nothing at all. (My son, age 7, would not let us scrape the wart.) Visiting the doctor again, he said some patients suggested using banana peel under a bandage, changed daily, so we tried that. Within just 3 DAYS the wart dropped off! We are continuing treatment for another week or so to ensure no small pieces survive. This may not work for all warts, but I definitely recommend banana peel as a low-risk first treatment for any wart problem.
