I have been plagued by a wart on the middle joint of my pointing finger. it was painful and the acid treatment didn't work. I read about the ACV and decided to try it. After one night with cotton soaked in ACV, secured with a band aide, I was amazed that it was 95% gone! One more night with the same treatment and it is gone... It still is.

I have had a wart on my thumb for almost a year. I tried to have to frozen off but that was not working so I looked on this website for home remedies. I initially tried the bananna peel but that did not seem to work for me, so I tried the apple cider vinegar. I put apple cider vinegar on a bandaid and left it on all day. I could tell it was working but the bandaid kept drying out too fast. I then put it on a small piece of cotton ball and put a bandaid over it. That worked so well that it kill the wart in one day. The bandaid by itself was just not mosit enough. Thanks to to website and it's remedies, I'm now wart free.

I have used ACV on my VERY BAD warts now for only three nights and my warts are turning black and starting to fall off!! THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!! Caution to all it burns a little but I've had my warts removed with surgery twice now and they have come back! I am excited for the coming week!

[YEA] I Had 2 of these warts on the bottom of my left foot for maybe 2 years. Never even thinking they were anything more than calluses. Once I started feeling pain from the walking on the warts for so long (like having a pebble in your shoe). I started looking it up. Long story short. Did a 2 week ACV soaked bandage treatment over night. And it actually worked in about 6 days.

Our son had a wart starting to grow near the cuticle of his finger and it was actually starting to go under his nail. After putting apple cider vinegar on a band-aid and wrapping it on the finger for about one week, the wart was gone and never grew back. Place a new apple cider vinegar band-aid on the wart each night.

I had a raised wart on my back, I took a piece of gauze and soaked it in ACV and applied it right on the wart, covered it up with a piece of duck tape. would leave it on for a couple of days. repeated for about a week or so and the wart started to get all soft and turned green, scaped the dead skin off and mole was gone.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Blackstrap Molasses

I have just come across an article which says that moles and warts are causes by a potassium deficiency. I had not heard of this before. Interesting that Apple Cider Vinegar is high in potassium and thus good for moles and warts. Another reason to take it everyday. Also molasses is high in potassium. Below are two links the second one has foods high in potassium.

To everyone out there who has the wart problem I had one on my had for three years, tried lots of things never went. It began to spread to other fingers until I told myself I just have to live with it. That was until I finally found a solution. Vitamin a capsules yes it works trust me I pricked the capsule and just one drop on the wart every day and they all dried up. and the thing is I just applied it on one wart and they all dried up, till I just scrape it off I was so relieved to have a normal hand again :) I just say let me share this because I know what you'll are going through if it worked for you let me know jabjab123(at)live.com

I followed a recomendation of taping an asprin (or piece of an asprin) to a very stubborn old wart, and also to a dime sized skin keratosis; after 4-5 days, both disolved and never returned. It resulted in a normal scab then scar, both of which healed normally, in the usual time frame. As predicted, the salysilic acid in the asprin simply disolved all the layers of built-up skin. I treated several stubborn warts and a keratosis that caused by over exposure from the sun.

Helpful hints: On the 3rd morning, lift the tape and check it every day & night so you don't over-do the treatment and get a sore spot from leaving it on longer than necessary (which occurred during my first trial; but which I later found was beneficial because it killed the deep wart root as well). Also be sure to cut your asprin to size, and use a chunk just a bit smaller than the growth so no surrounding/healty skin is burned. Also scrape off the coating of the asprin if it is "enteric coated", and wet the asprin before taping to shorten the treatment time by a day.

I had a large wart under my finger nail on my ring finger and nothing I did would kill it! I applied everything under the sun to it, to kill it and nothing worked, I think some of the things I did to it just made it bigger! Well, I researched warts for months trying to find something that would make it go away, and after trying so many things, I remembered reading how someone had made a paste with asprin and applied it to their warts every night covering it with an bandaide, and leaving it for 12 hours at a time. I did this for about 2 weeks and noticed the texture of the wart began to change, and then it was like going away. It literally just went away! There was some old dry skin and I filed it down with an emery board and it was gone!!! I pround to say I am 2 months with no MORE WART!!!! :)

All you need to do is buy some cheap asprin, and crush it, I always crushed 2 at a time, and then in a small container would add it and a drop or two of water making a paste, and then applied it all over the wart covering it up with the paste then cover it with an bandaide for 12 hours at a time.

GOOD LUCK this works!!!

Many years ago I discovered a remedy for warts. Take an aspirin and melt it with a small bit of water. Take a toothpick & take a small amount of the melted aspirin and put it right on the wart...do NOT get any on your skin (only on the wart) as it will eat the skin. Put a band-aid over it for a day or two...Then you may want to take the band-aid off. If the wart has turned black leave it alone. If it did not turn black put a bit more fresh aspirin on it & cover again for another day or two. Then take band-aid off & forget about it. You'll look one day shortly after & the wart will have disappeared...Just do NOT get the aspirin on the skin... Cathy

After trying apple cider vinegar to no avail, and then undergoing cyrogenic freezing and laser therapy repeatedly at a dermatologist, I've had great success with the Bach crab apple flower remedy. I applied directly to the wart twice a day, and it started healing almost immediately (which is saying something, because the plantar wart has been around for over three years). It is definitely worth a try!

I don't know about hemorrhoids but the bacon grease gets rid of warts on the hands and fingers.

I have already used the banana peel remedy before on my genital area and it worked fine. It got rid of it and didn't scarred. Unfortunately, when I tried using the same method (banana peel secured by a medical tape) on my torso (chest and belly area) it didn't work and had somehow left burn-like scars from the medical tape's adhesive. Just use with caution, even if it worked on some parts of the body, it may not work on the other parts.

I have a wart on my knee that I have been filing down and covering with a banana peel and duct tape every night for week. I have not noticed any serious change... it bleeds when I file it down... just looks red and irritated when I remove the peel and tape. Nothing is turning black.

This is the 3rd wart I have had in my lifetime oddly all have been on my right side and each one appeared years apart... my first at age 10.. the second at age 33.. and this one at 52. The first 2 I had frozen off with liquid nitro... but my insurance is not great these days, so I am trying a more economical approach.

Warts are viruses. One of my go-to's for viruses is Lysine. Garlic paste and fresh aloe vera are two other good cures. Good luck, warts suck.

15 years almost I am fighting this crasy verrucas on my feet. Every year older become bigger, and new ones appear! This year that verruca claster become painfull! I started wolking strange way trying to avoid pain. Since I am mum and breastfeeding only natural remedy is an option! I found this great site and messages of you all who tried banana peel. I started at evening. Put the peel inside on verrucas and bandage it with duct tape. In the morning I take it of and find black places where verruas are. Also I discavered new little ones growing from inside of foot. I took foot file, and as much as I could, tried to eliminate that black spots. After I was foot and put propolis drops on it. And put socks. On evening I wash my foot, took a foot file and also tried to take off as much as I could, that infected skin. And then put banana peel again. I REPETED that procedure 7 days, and all ot that bastards are gone! After 15 years I finally have nice, soft, clean foot! It works - that great banana really works!!!

I have some small warts on my forehead and used banana peel scrapings to place on the watrs. Unfortunately a rather large amount of scrapings collected on my forehead skin and not on the wart. Now the skin in this are is depressed (like a small hole or crater) and it has been burning there for about two days. I'm afraid the skin won't heal itself and also There is still a burning sensation from the area. The are is a little darker as well. Is this a known side effect and will my skin recorver/grow back? Or am I stuck with this? Is there a treatment that can stop the burning?

John, I wouldn't worry much about it. Warts are caused by a virus and what is seen on the surface is just a small part of the total system, which is like an iceberg.

The banana peel is a very effective treatment and probably just killed virally infected cells under the skin, leaving the depression. it should grow back in time--try putting extra virgin coconut oil on it and up your vitamin c intake.

John: More people eat bananas than any other fruit. There has been only 1 recorded case of somebody being allergic to them. There are only 2 possibilities I can think of. A non organic banana might have some pesticides in the peel. Normally the pesticides stay on the exterior and do not get that far into the interior. The disease might not have been confined to the wart and might also be under the skin. Maybe the nutrients in the peel killed them and they produced mycotoxins that caused the reaction.

Warning

Thanks Nanowriter from Hotspot. I do get that the wort is only the tip of the iceberg, hence the thicker skin where the wort is located. Unfortunately the banana peepl scarings slid down and colleted in an area where there are no worts whatsoever. My guess is that acid from the scrapings burnt into my skin, creating the depression in that area. The depression is the size of a small fingernail and is only where the scrapings were left. A lot of people seem to have benefited from the banana peel treatment. I would like to give the WARNING to be very careful if banana peel scrapings are applied and not just the banana peel. It is my experience that they can burn into the skin. One possible explanation that I can come up with is that I scraped too hard on the banana peel so that too much acid juice from the banana peel itself might have made its way into the scrapings that I applied on my skin. I haven't given up hope that the skin will grow back in the area, partly or completely and I will post at a later date about this to make sure others can take their precautions. In the mean time I will treat the area with virgin coconut oil and up my vitamin C intake, as you suggest.

Thanks Mike62 for your reply. I seriously can't see how I could be allergic to bananas as I have been eating them all my life and don't have any other allergies whatsoever. I'm pretty sure it was an organic banana but can't be completely sure of this. I am very sure, however, that the part of the skin, where the banana peel scrapings ended up accidentally, did not have any problems before what I presume is an acid burn cause by banana peel scrapings.

It's been a little more than 5 weeks since the banana peel scrapings burned a cavity on my forehead. It is still slightly darker and the whole is still there but it is less. I still hope it will disappear in time but I'm guessing it will not go away completely. I wish I had been more careful with the banana peel scrapings or just stuck to rubbing the skin lightly with the banana peel. That would probably have been completely safe. Does anybody know how long I should avoid being in the sun so that the tissue does not turn even darker?
