the best way to remove a wart is not to cut it off- it will most likely grow back. also if you go to the dermatologist that is expensive. the best way to remove warts is to use garlic. the acid burns the wart off for good and it doesnt even hurt-- inless you mess up and make the piece of garlic bigger than your wart.

Step 1: Materials

all you need to remove a wart painlessly,inecpensively,and perminantly is garlic, a knife, and some tape.

Step 2: Steps

1) peel the garlic
2) cut a sliver of garlic the same shape and size of your wart
3) duct tape or masking tape to hold the garlic on-- these work the best
4) keep the garlic on for 15 minuets a day and in acouple of days you will notice that the wort will be slowly getting smaller and then eventually it will be gone-- the wart will dissapear between 4-8 days. keep in mind most warts will grow back after bieng cut.

I'm going to give this a try because it makes sense. Back before we had antibiotics, a common treatment for surface wounds was to put garlic compresses on them because they have a strong antibiotic effect, but they had to be very careful not to leave them on too long because it would blister the skin. Blistering a wart in an antibiotic environment makes sense.well

someone please help!! i have a wart on my left foot and it is a bit painful whenever i take a step and i also have a wart on my right foot(which isnt so bad) but i really want to remove it in the most gentle, easy, effective, short amount of time, cheap as possible!
I'm scared of freezing it because my brother once got his wart freezed and he was crying his eyes out! and i also don't want it having anything to do with pain!! Please answer

How you treat a wart all depends on where it is located. I successfully made a (stucco) wart disappear from my face (cheek) after letting freshly squeezed garlic sit on it (covered with plastic wrap) for an entire night. If you use this method, put some vaseline around the wart before you apply the garlic as it is SORE! It takes one week for the wart's scab to fall off (don't touch it, don't pick the scab, try to keep it dry during showering). Leaves a little scar. But (just as when a doctor helps you to make a wart go away) it grew back and kept on growing bigger (close to half an inch).

After years of experimenting I finally got it. I had some ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOO which I dotted that nasty skin fungus with (the small white dots that appear on arms etc.) and figured, what if a wart is also a fungus? I applied it to the wart and let it dry and then forgot about it. After about three days it started crumbling off. I helped it a little with sandpaper (not too coarse but not too fine either). Now I do this as maintenance because stucco warts tend to grow back. Bit of shampoo, let it dry, and then sand it a few days later. A little scar is easy to cover with a bit of foundation, but a stucco wart is not!

i have had warts for one year now... i had one on my left hand, used compund W, and it didn't come back. but i had one on my right hand after, at the base of the middle finger.then one at the tip, and then on my thumb. IT KEEPS SPREADING! i have 2 on the inside of my ring finger. 11 (or 13 theres a cluster of 3) on the inside of my middle finger. 1 on the outside of my middle finger. one on the inside of my pointer finger. and 5 on the inside of my thumb. these are all on the right hand. i also have 1 on my foot. so in total i have 20 warts, and they r ruining my life. i'm in grade seven and i am sacred of blood, so no cutting. garlic, have u met my mom? compund W? ain't nobody got time for dat. actually my warts have become, like, immune to compund W. it used to work but then i quit for a while, tried again (same bottle of stuff) and it didn't do anything. if i cut it out of my middle finger, the entire inside skin would be gone. so what else can i try that doesn't involve, 1. being emo, and cutting your self. 2 using duct tape. or 3 compound W. like i said i am a grade seven, and am right handed, so its hard to write, it hurts. also today i used a "test dummy" wart on my thumb, cut it, and it didn't bleed. but i didn't get the root. will it grow back out? pls help, i'm in desperate need of it.
You are using something to spread them. Any time you have a break in the skin the virus will enter look at the instructions above your post that I have posted. Use the nail file to sand away the callus but not to the point it bleeds if you don't like the sight of blood. This treatment is long 21 days but it will work. I used three boxes of band aids. Apply the bandages with the plastic glue strip on the wart remover. If you let the callus stay the wart remover will not get in and irritate the skin and you will not kill the wart. Follow the instructions to the letter and you will start to clear these up. Be patient it can take a long time to get them all.
All of these home remedies are smoke and mirrors. I used the home burn it off method with the over the counter freezer It is a total waste of money. I spread a wort to several places by using nail clippers to cut one off. I had 2 on the top of my toe, 2 in the cuticles of 2 different fingers, and 2 on the side of 1 finger. I had all of them liquid nitrogen at the same time. This is very painful. The 2 on my toe were killed but the others remained. I slowly performed the steps out lined below and I have killed them all. When you use a over the counter wart remover all it does is irritation the skin so your body recognizes the wart as an invader. Duct tape irritates the skin and your body will kill the invader. The true way to remove a wart at home is these steps:
1. Buy yourself some cheap nail clippers and a cheap course nail file. (you will throw these away after your wart is gone). Never use these on any other part of the body or it will get infected with a wart also.
2. You have to cut away the callus skin to effectively kill the virus. Do not mutilate yourself but get the callus off with the nail clippers.
3. Take the nail file and file the callus away until you see a very small amount of blood. The blood is the capillary vessels that are feeding your wart. As you kill the wart back you will continue to remove callus that will protect the roots. You will irritate the skin by removing a small layer to keep the wart exposed. Do not sand to where you are bleeding profusely just enough for the small capillaries to show red.
4. Apply any of the wort medicines that contain salicylic acid. All of them do.
5.Apply a cheap plastic bandage with the plastic DO NOT PUT THE PAD OVER THE WART I use the cheapest store brand plastic bandages. Using the cloth bandages or applying the pad to the wort is not effective. The skin must be irritate the whole time.
If your skin is wrinkled and damp you are doing it right.
6. You MUST repeat step 4 and 5 everyday
7. You MUST repeat steps 3,4 and 5 every 2 days. As you kill the wart back you will continue to remove callus that will protect the roots. You will irritate the skin by removing a small layer to keep the wart exposed. Do not sand to where you are bleeding profusely just enough for the small capillaries to show red.
8. Continue for 21 days and then stop.
The wart will look like it is still there but it will be killed and over the next week or so the area will clear up.
If you go to the dermatologist all the do is cut away the callus irritate it with liquid nitrogen and tell you to go to the store and buy a wort remover that contains salicylic acid. I hope this helps.
Thanks for the place to help others with this horrible virus.

Ok, I really thought someone was going to mention the right way to go about this but since no one did I will. Since we don't live in the dark ages of medicine anymore, the current best way to remove a wart is to freeze it off, now this used to be expensive to go to the doctor and have them do this. But the wonderful people at Compound W came out with freeze off, it's over the counter, it's cheap and it works. I think it uses liquid oxygen or something to that extent, so please everyone stop mutilating themselves with nails and toenail clippers.
No offence... but freezing doesn't work. I had worts on my feet and hands for over 5 years... and went to a Medical Doctor over 12 times and got the freezing.. and the warts persisted. Actually, there are video's on youtube of people getting the freezing from docs... and then if you look at the commends... they report back that the warts are still there.... as for compound W... SAVE YOUR MONEY.... I tryed all their products... they sell the acid.. they sell the freezing tubes (for like 50$) and if you look for reviews on the net... you see that most people are unsuccessful.
I have to say, I never tryed this method (garlic) but Im not so sure if its not just another Placebo treatment. I tryed all of it... duct tape, burning, cutting, freezing, all the acids.. I even went to a naturopathic doc... and a hypnotist.. I bought a silly electric devic that ZAPPS them... you name it.. I even made a blog about it... http://plantarwartcure.blogspot.comhttp://plantarwartcure.blogspot.com where you can see some gross videos and pics of the whole thing ;-)
So be careful what you try!!! Same yourself the pain I went through..
Freezing worked fine for me. I had 10 warts at the time and visited the doc for freezing three times. I saw no results and had spent $120, so I stopped going and decided to do it myself. I bought a can of the computer dust cleaner, turned it upside down with a q-tip on the wart and used it twice a week. It hurt like hell but after a month or two they were all gone. This was over two years ago.

There is a link on how to do it on this site, but I didn't know about it at the time:
http://www.instructables.com/id/EBIXR5WBZ0EUN32LBS/
I found that if the wart is round and smooth that the dust cleaner will work as mentioned. It is possible to burn the skin. You could start out by trying it just a little. When I found that there was a scab forming on top of the wart, I knew it was working.

This method, for me, worked well on smaller warts. It takes more than the advertised one use.

The dollarstore sells a waterproof medical tape. Cut that and it makes the skin like it's been soaking in water all day. This would be about the same as the duct tape, I assume, but a lot easier to cut and paste.
My doctor froze off my two when I was 10. Worked perfect. Years later I dug a different one out with a razor and it never came back.
What's cheaper is the computer duster in a can that is much, much more cheaper. Take a Q-Tip, turn the can upside down, slowly release the trigger and spray until the tip is dripping. Apply it to the wart. This slightly stings. This works will with skin tags too. At 14 bucks or more for the stuff in the over the counter RX department versus 5 bucks in the computer department and the first gives you only 5 applications, if you're lucky and the latter, 50 or more, you choose.

What I've found is that if the wart is smooth and round, it can be frozen off after a few times. Calloused, neither the dust off or approved freezing method works.
you are misinformed by American medical propaganda. the object here is to share good ways to heal. since a wart is a virus infection of the skin, using freeze methods is way overkill. and does more damage to the skin and underlying flesh. Remember that all or most disease is caused by a weakness in the immune system. (from poor american nutrition diet or stress, etc) these other methods work. really!

so i put the glue on but when should it go away im only 12 so i dont know much sorry
sorry, freeze off doesn't work.....tried every single kind of wart freezing brand and they just grew back....it looks like they will go away..tehy get smaller but don't disapear completely and grow back...i tried teh clipper appraoch too...i will try the garlic...
It's not that bad if the wart is on a foot or hand to cut it out.
yeah but that costs about 20 dollars to do and this is about 1 dolar.

Is this a safe procedure to remove wart? I found a website that sells a cream to remove warts, moles and other skin conditions. It was invented by a Filipino inventor and won different International awards. To those who are interested you can visit this site and know more about their products, http://www.rccamazingtouch.com/main/

I hope this will help you!
il try n post d result :-)

Duct tape for a month or more? My wife's plantar wart came off in 4 days. I have heard the wart can get some of its oxygen supply from the surface exposed on the bottom of the foot. Apparently, sometimes the duct tape alone is enough to cut off the oxygen and kill the wart before it gets bigger and starts getting into the vascular system.The acid and freezing remedies should both work better if the surface if covered with duct tape, non-porus medical tape or liquid band-aid after the acid/treatment is applied. Not to mention, if the foot is taped its not likely you will spread the virus in damp areas. The Dr Scholls Clear Away over the counter foot patches have a similar setup. They have a very sticky water proof tape patch that covers the entire wart and they have a salicylic acid center has that slowly burns the wart out. They have worked for my wife on a couple of occasions. Its cheaper to use the Wart Off and the duct tape. Dont have any Wart Off? Here is another idea. Aspirin contains a high percentage of salicylic acid. Why not just duct tape an aspirin to the bottom of the foot directly over the wart? Need to get the aspirin slightly damp I would think.
Bro I would like to know , the duct tape is the simple tape that we are using for normal purpose in our daily life
yes it is.

Hi - just wanted to post our success story based on the information obtained from the original post and subsequent comments. My 7 year old had a rather large wart on her toe. Being young and not open to any painful methods we decided to try something natural before taking her to the doctor to have it burnt off. We considered the commercial freeze dry products - but they did sound a bit scary. So we put slivers of garlic on her toe for 3 nights in a row - 10 mins at a time and then put bandaids on her toe at night at bedtime (making sure it was completely sealed). After a few nights we could see the wart starting to shrink and turn black. We then consistently put a bandaid on her toe at bedtime and removed it (or she removed it) in the morning. We did this for about 2.5 to 3 weeks. It got blacker and smaller each day. Today the whole thing fell off root and all - and there was no pain on her part. In fact she didn't even notice it had fallen off until I mentioned it to her. Hopefull that's the end of it and it won't come back. I really think starving it of oxygen is the key - of course the garlic doesn't hurt and probably speeds up the whole process. I don't think it's necessary to keep the same plaster or tape on for the duration - as long as there is a good length of time the wart is starved of oxygen within a 24 hour period - it will die. Hope this help anyone else considering this method.
That's cool I just prayed and it went away.

If you cut off a large enough piece of meat together with the wart, it won't grow back :P
plus you get a nice scar. chicks dig scars ;)
Not all chicks dig scars.

Boy, these are some scary plantar wart remedies with complex explanations here. I knew people who had suffered orthodox medical procedures, so I tried my own (with no great hopes of success). Kept a patch of plain ordinary white medical adhesive tape on my foot for 2 weeks and when I pulled it off the entire wart (with long root like a small white carrot) came off with the tape. Incredibly simple and painless. No chemicals, no surgery. Now 50 years later and it has never come back. Long before Duct Tape was invented, so the kind of tape has nothing to do with it other that it must make a good seal to block air and moisture from the wart.

I've cut off three warts with my fingernails, and only two have attempted to come back. One was only once(which I did just now) while the other one's come back twice(it was a wart I'd had since I was, like, 8, and it was pretty big) and I cut both of them off. And it looks like they're gone for good.

I am using a thick liquid wart remover and it says to put it on the wart about 2 times a day, and i don't think it works because, it just turns the wart white. and doing any of the other things you guys mentioned sounds kind of scary or risky. what is an easy painless way to get rid of a wart on your foot beneath your big toe?
M F5 years ago
i use Elmers glue, three times a day works every time
Sir, People clearly want to know more about your technique, Please continue.
-Quantity?
-How long do you leave it on?
-Specific type? White glue? Glue stick? Super Glue?
Elmers glue is just a brand
