Duct tape for warts

Another treatment that has been proven effective in a respected medical journal is duct tape, yes the silver sticky fiberous tape that you buy in the hardware store. I'm not kidding, check New England Medical Journal yourself. Cut out a circle the same size as the wart, place over the wart for 3-4 days, remove for 1 day. Repeat this cycle 3-4 times, as long as it takes to remove the wart. I know it sounds crazy, the medical profession laughs about it also.

Everywhere I looked I saw this remedy! Being a skeptic, and having tried everything else, I tried it! Within two weeks, the wart on my son's hand was gone!! Try this remedy, it really works!

Most remedies at the store do not work well for planter's warts, so I was left with few options. I used this as a last resort and i was amazed that they started to disappear in only a few days!

I had this very large wart near my nuckle, everything i tried just seemed to make the wart larger it seemed to speard out sideways. Christmas 2005 was four days away. so i thought i give it ago i combined the ducktape treatment with the banana treatment to give it two chances, did not think it would go so quick though christmas day it was nearly cleared. Thanks

Unbelieveable! Comments By: HB on 2007-07-11
I tried everything to get rid of a very stubborn wart on my foot. Absolutely nothing worked. BUT DUCK TAPE DID! My only additional advice is that initially I changed the tape daily after showering, but it's better to leave it alone and just change it every few days. And give it a few weeks to work if need be. But it WILL DEFINITELY work!!!!
verruca Comments By: myrosia wojtaszyk on 2007-11-13
My young son had a huge wart on the sole of his foot, getting bigger every day. I tried all sorts of commercial preps-nothing worked. Podiatrist said leave it alone and it will go in a year or so! Tried duct tape-wart gone in 1 week-no pain, no freezing, no scar! Incredible! Doctor thinks I'm nuts! 1 year later, and my sons wart has not returned. Try it!
