My 5 yr. old son had 2 warts on his finger, we tried to freeze the off a doctors twice.I also tried ductape for a day or two but started applying dmso on a band aid at night ant within a week it went away. His mother had one on her finger before she was pregnant so I guess she must have passed to him. She also put dmso on a band aid and the wart left as well. I got the dmso at a health food store.

Someone said they had a stubborn wart...use DMSO..put it on every day and it WILL leave you! It might take a couple of weeks...also good for herpes cold sores and the best anti-inflammatory available today.

I had a big wart on my left leg. I had it removed at the doctors office. But couple of years later it came back. So I read an article in a magazine about using duck tape to remove warts. So I tried it!

Cut a small piece of Duct tape and taped it on my warts, I even took showers with it on my wart. I had the duck tape on day & night. And only replaced the tape when it starts to get loose. After couple of days the wart softened and eventually disappeared after a week. And its been a few years and it hasn't come back.

When my daughter was very little, she had a big wart on her thumb. So I wrapped it with tape & couple of days later, it was gone! And it hasn't been back & she's 16 yrs. old now.

A not-so-new published study indicates that duct tape is more effective in wart removal than having your doctor freeze them. http://archpedi.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=203979

We at earth clinic have known that for years! Imagine what the score would be had they tried ACV!

I think the reason it doesn't work for some is that not all duct tape is alike. Some duct tape "breathes", allowing air to get to the wart. If it doesn't work you might try some of the cheaper plastic-looking duct tape.

I had a wart on my finger which I had tried to remove by using vinegar, but this just burned my skin. Then I tried wrapping duct tape around my finger (over the wart) which I changed every few days. After about 3 weeks it was gone and has still not come back in a year!

My five year old son had a nasty wart on the knuckle of his right thumb. Duct tape, recommended to us by our doctor, got rid of it completely in about a week. Hasn't worked for me yet though!

My doctor froze the four I showed him, now I have around a dozen! Commercial solvents don't work either.

I'm off to try Apple Cider Vinegar (I have lots, I make it from my own apples), banana skin and voodoo potato treatment (which my family used, decades ago - it can also be done with a slug, if I remember correctly!). Maybe tea-tree oil and vitamin E if I can find them.

I had lots of warts, for years, in my teens but they just went away eventually, so maybe it is about an immune response.

I have tried Thuja quite a few times for longer periods of time and it has never helped me at all. Glad it helps other people..... A long time ago me and a friend tried some tea and a cream. He had a lot more than I had, really awful, his disappeared completely, mine didn't change at all!

My 12 year old son had a huge planters wart on the sole of his foot. His Dr. recommended duct tape. Every night I put new tape on. Just on the wart. Every night when I took off the tape he would dig out the dead skin. one week later the huge wart was gone. He had a big hole which healed up nicely. ONE WEEK! PRETTY COOL! I guess the tape cuts off the air supply to the wart and it dies.

my gp doctor told me of this -- IT WORKS!! -- plantar warts (the warts most common on the bottom of the feet) cover them with duct tape and keep them covered with the tape for several days (mine took about three weeks) there is no pain or discomfort. i think the tape keeps the wart from getting air and thus it dies. at any rate, this works every time.

Duct tape on wart to suffocate it for a week and it will be gone. William Beacon was on David Letterman Christmas Day Eve telling people different uses for duck or duct tape. He told David Letterman if you put Duct Tape on a wart it will be gone in a week.

Vaseline and duct tape cured a wart on my daughter's finger. I smothered the wart in vaseline and wrapped her finger in duct tape and left it on for a week.

I'm not sure if this is a 100% natural remedy, but I figured since it worked for me I thought you guys might be able to post something like it on your website, so that others may benefit from it healing properties. It's called Duct Tape, LOL Yes that's right... it's the stuff used when you need to fix a seal or to keep cords in place from others tripping over. May not sound like it's of much use, but I have found it to work wonders! One of which is Warts! Ever since I was little I somehow seemed to pick up warts very easily, especially when I'm going barefoot in the locker rooms or at the swimming pool. I was getting fed up with the expensive over-the-counter topical remedies to so to say "Kill Off" or "Burn Out" the wart(s). And after going to the doctor's over and over, with the freezing methods that may require a second or third visit depending on the severity of the fungus, I began my search for something that would both be effective and inexpensive. I looked no further than the kitchen cupboard. By placing a piece of duct tape over the affected area(s) it from what I've gathered "Irritates the wart", which in turn causes your immune system to respond. I have as well as my younger sister have both tried this with outstanding results. I can honestly say that if you keep it covered with duct tape the wart(s) will be gone in as little as a couple of weeks. I figured since I've had such dramatic results from this, others may benefit from it as well. I hope that by my experience you will be able to share this among the other readers of this website. Thanks!

Glad it worked for you. You should know that warts are caused by various strains of HPV (human papilloma virus), not a fungus :-)

I'm from Calgary too though! Go Flames!

After months of treatment, with over the counter medicines, including the freezing method which upset my daughter terribly, a simple piece of duct tape on the wart for 4 days took it completely away! How I wish I tried it first! The best part is that my kid didn't mind putting the tape on... she thought it was fun!

Just found your website and love it, so wanted to tell you of my own experience. A while back I developed an ugly wart on my ear. I tried everything on the market, but nothing worked, until I mentioned it to my mother-in-law. She told me of a remedy that was passed down from her great grandmother, which was to apply egg white to the wart several times a day, and before going to bed at night. I figured I would try it since I had nothing to lose. After a few days I noticed it was smaller, and about 10 days later it was completely gone. I was amazed, and am now a firm believer of old time remedies!

An accidental discovery at my skin clinic - my nephew suffers from KP (keratosis pilaris) which is a skin condition in which the skin is very dry and bumpy. KP is most common on the back of arms and thighs.

I recommended Emu Oil Soap and natural Emu Oil for his KP. After a few weeks, he told me that the plantars warts he had between his toes were gone (this is after several cryo (freezing) appointments with his MD. This was from using the soap which washes down the drain and doesn't really stay on the skin in any substantial concentration.

To test his theory, I had my sister-in-law use some Emu Oil on my niece who has suffered from Plantars Warts for several years - gone in two weeks!

Now - I recommend it to everyone with warts.
