Banana Peel Feedback

I have had a plantar's wart for YEARS. I sought help from a podiatrist for which he prescribed an acid compound. For the last eighteen months, I have used this acid compound EVERY DAY to burn off the wart. The wart I had grew to two warts and they DID NOT GO AWAY. Finally, a coworker recommended your website and I discovered the banana peel remedy. IT WORKED IN ONLY A FEW DAYS!. I taped a small piece of a green (unripe) banana peel to the two warts and left it on while I slept at night. After doing this only a few days, the warts are completely gone and the skin on my foot looks healthier than it has for years. Thank you Earth Clinic! I am so grateful for all of your information.

Absolutely fabulous... i used this as a little girl when i was a keen swimmer and had up to 8 verrucas at a time. The doctor suggested it and truly works!

I had a plantar's wart for 2 or more years. I tried many over the counter remedies including the freezing method now sold OTC. I tried duct tape, but had trouble with it staying on my foot... it would shift when I walked... and also goo up my socks or shoes. I then saw this site about the banana peel. I cut a piece to go over the wart, then I used duct tape over that and another tape over the duct tape. It was gone within 4 days. I am so amazed after all I've tried and the banana peel worked. I don't know if the duct tape helped too, but the banana peel and duct tape sure did the trick and did it fast!!! Thanks for your info... if not for you, I'd probably still have the stupid thing!

I read about this on your website while searching for another method to get rid of planters warts on my 7 yr-old daughter's foot. She'd had one removed by the doctor using liquid nitrogen and I knew I'd never get her back there, so I figured I had nothing to lose by trying this. I cut a small piece of banana peel big enough to cover her wart, rubbed it over, then held it in place with a bandage and a sock for 3 nights. I was then able to pick the wart out with my fingernail and everything looks great! Thanks!

Took the advice of a few writers here and applied a banana square to my daughter's plantar wart every second night (secured within a couple of band-aids) and rubbed the peeling on the wart the another nights. It has been 3-4 weeks and the wart is gone. If we had taped it every night, it probably would have disappeared even earlier. No doctors, pain, or recovery to deal with.

I used the banana peel for a wart on my leg. It worked great! I cut out square inch piece of banana peel and put it on my wart and left it on for an hour. I could immediately tell that it was working because I felt it dissolving the bacteria inside. It didn't hurt at all but it made it itch a little bit. But it was all worth it. Within 10 days my annoying wart was gone all with only one use! Thanks Earth Clinic!!

I tried this on a wart once, and it did disappear within about 10 days. Nevertheless, I wasn't sure of it. I had my son mention this to a friend who had hundreds of warts on his foot and various other places. He had been through ALL the usual treatments, and his condition persisted for years. About a month and a half after my son telling him about the banana treatment, I got a call from this kid's mother thanking me profusely for passing along this remedy. She's the one that told me how bad the situation really was, and she said all warts had completely disappeared!

I found this in a very old home remedy book 3 yrs ago. My grandson had to have a very large mass of plantar warts cut off his toes. They had to sedate him and the dr said he would have to do this once every 6 mos or so cause there was no cure.....[After the surgery] I put a whole banana peel around this mass, which actually had started to return within weeks, and then put a white sock and made him wear it all nite, about 10 hours. It became "gushy and gross" and he complained but he wore it and his mom did the same thing the next night and on the 3rd night, the entire mass was gone and has not returned in over 3 yrs. Ha to that Dr!!!!

I am using the inside of the banana skin only. It seems to be working (day 3)...

I had a very deep plantar's wart about 1/2 inch in diameter which had been growing on the bottom of my foot for at least 8 years. I treated this wart with banana peel secured with a bandaid and refreshed with new peel at least 3 times a day (this I did after removing the callous with curved blade Revlon cuticle scissors). I also used an emery board to lightly file the dead tissue away as the wart was brought to the surface by the potassium in the banana peel. It has taken 6 weeks to free myself of this lump in my foot - and I am elated! My sister had surgery on a plantar's wart and it left scar tissue which she said was more annoying that the wart itself. Natural cures are always better. During the time that the wart tissue was dying the body had time to build new repair tissue in its place without scaring. Be patient and diligent in your endeavor, as stubborn or deep warts take time. It does not take a big piece of peel - just cut off a slice of banana and then cut a piece the size you need. The best bandaid for constant use, which has total comfort (no latex) (and you cannot even feel the bandaid) is Nexcare Comfort (there are different Nexcare bandaids - choose the one that says Comfort). They leave absolutely no residue on your skin, they are also flexible, and stay secure, and breath with your skin.

My doctor actually told me about this! He said to use a scalpel to trim the dead skin, then use the inside of an unripe banana peel on the wart for 15 minutes a day. It worked!

Banana peel worked for the warts I had since I was about 13 (I'm now 45). I had approximately 50 warts, mostly on my arms and some on my legs. They covered such a large area that I actually taped whole banana peels to my arms every night. It felt weird but within three months my warts were completely gone.

Every night for 6 nights I taped a small piece of banana peel on a planter wart on my toe. After a while the wart turned completely black. It was black even down deep. I guess the banana peel killed the wart and it finally came out.

My 13 year old daughter had a large planters wart on the bottom of her foot. We saw our MD who cut the skin around it and told us to give our over the counter wart medication 6 more weeks. If the wart did not go away on its own, we were to schedule an out-patient surgery to get it removed. I found this website and decided to give the banana peel a try (after completing 7 more weeks on med. with no results). After 3 days of application of the banana peel to her foot, the wart is gone. I'm so happy!!!! Thank you for sharing this incredible information for free. I just had to write and tell you of our success.

I was wondering what I could do with the 5 banana peels I had left over after making banana bread and went online and saw the posts on Earth Clinic about banana peels for warts AND how they are great rose food because of their high potassium! We have lots of rose bushes at our house. Yea! I baked the banana peels on 350 for about an hour until they were crispy (could have down it faster with the broiler, but didn't think of it in time). Then I put them in my morter and pestle and ground them down. Finally, I took a few tablespoons of the ground banana peels and dug them a few inches down into the dirt around all of our rose bushes. Cool!
