Banana for warts

Rub the wart with the inside of a banana skin. The inside of the banana contains potassium apparently and this will get rid of the wart.

Great Comments By: Triana on 2004-07-16
I was told that using the inner part of a banana peel would get rid of warts. I had a very small wart I tried this on, and the wart was gone within a week. I wondered if it was just a coincidence. However, my son mentioned it to a kid at school, who had been fighting warts for years.

This kid had "hundreds" of warts on his hands and feet. He had been to the doctor and tried every remedy available. He started applying the banana peels and the warts were all gone within 3 weeks.

I know this because his very very grateful mother made a point of calling me to thank me! Nice to make a difference in the world.

Homeopathy Comments By: Rakesh on 2007-12-25
This truly works. I had over 10 warts all over my feet. It definitely wasnt a pleasant site and I had great difficulty walking at times too. I tried all kinds of treatments from over the counter plasters, banana peels, burning and laser treatments. But they just kept coming back and even expanding. Finally a friend of mine recommended that I try HOMEOPATHY and it was MAGIC. It is totally non-invasive and painless. Although it is a time consuming treatment it is the most effective. If you have any questions you can email me at [email protected] or call my homeopathy doctor on +91 9890740666. Trust me you wont regret it!!
Dubious Comments By: James Young on 2008-01-15
I heard this was a treatment too. I have worts covering the backs of my index and middle finger of my right hand limiting my dexterity hugely. I tried this and although it didn't clear it up entirely, I'm sure it made a slight difference.

hearsay Comments By: Anon on 2009-04-09
i have warts on my face and feet. i resently went to doctor who was not willing to remove my facial warts due to scaring. there has been medical research in the banana peel to prove that it does work. warts are a virus in the skin and our body slowly build up an immune to them which results in the going away but this can take many years. tea tree oil is another mentioned remedy but unfortuanty the concentration of the oils are strong and again can burn and cause scaring.
I have one question. Comments By: kidd1 on 2009-05-07
Okay so,I had 2 GIANT warts last summer and had them surgically removed.Somehow,one of them grew back even bigger this time.Most people with warts know how embarrassing it is,so I am willing to try this rememdy.Basically,my question is..If the warts are bigger,will this method still work? I have atleast 10 smaller ones to the side of the big one,so hopefully atlest those will be cleared.

Banana skins do seem to work, bizarrely Comments By: Josephine on 2009-08-16
I was horrified to suddenly notice not one but two warts on the middle knuckles of my index and middle fingers on my left hand on Friday morning. No idea where they came from, I've only ever had one before as a child, so it's unusual for me. As with the rest of you, I wasn't at all happy by the idea of having warts, but thought I could remember something about banana skins so looked on here and elsewhere to see what people had to say. I then immediately started rubbing the inside of banana skins on them both (slightly obsessively, I must admit - luckily was off work so could do it regularly after every hand wash throughout the day) and continued to do so throughout Saturday (yesterday) too. I didn't stick the banana on with a plaster overnight as some have suggested (as doubt I'd sleep well with it on and it would be pretty revolting by morning), but did keep reapplying it and making sure I squeezed some of the juice out of the banana skin where I'd cut it). I vaguely wondered yesterday whether the smaller wart might be starting to look a little smaller, but decided it was my imagination. However, this morning (Sunday) when i got up and washed the slightly brown dried banana goo off my fingers, it was immediately obvious that they were both much improved - flatter and less defined. I'm SO pleased but still can't quite believe it's made such an immediate and dramatic improvement - that's just in 48 hrs. I was bit of a sceptic beforehand, but thought I'd give it a go before buying some of the pharmacy solutions. Now I'll just keep going with the banana skins for a bit longer until all looks completely back to normal. Sounds completely bonkers, but this has definitely worked well for me. Perhaps it doesn't for some others due to the variety of different viruses that can cause the warts??? (No, I don't really know what I'm talking about!) I'd say it's definitely worth trying anyway. Best of luck.
Does this work even though it is so simple? Comments By: Bess on 2009-11-07
I really want to get rid of my warts and was thinking about trying the tape idea but because you have to keep it on for a while I thought that I should give this a go
does it actually work? because I need help fast! :)

warts and bananas Comments By: joliv on 2010-07-26
Dont know about warts being cured by bananas but they cured a verruca on my husbands foot.You need to keep a small piece of banana skin taped to the skin - WHITE side of banana touching the skin. Keep replacing it every day - does get a bit messy but keep perserving - the verruca eventually lifted off.Might work for warts too - i dont know- but it would be a cheap easy remedy to try.
