Home Remedies

  • Use duct tape- Cut a piece that will just cover the wart. Stick it on and leave it there for six days. When you take the tape off, soak the area in water for a few minutes, then use a disposable emery board or pumice stone to file down the dead, thick skin. Leave the wart uncovered overnight and apply a new patch in the morning. Repeat the procedure until you’re wart-free.
  • Cover it in vitamin C. Crush a vitamin C tablet and add water to make a thick paste. Apply it to the wart and then cover it with a bandage.
  • Be sure to dry off your wart after you wash, to reduce the chance of spreading the virus to someone else. When warts are wet, they seem to be more contagious.
  • Don’t scratch or pick at warts.
  • Apply freshly crushed garlic directly to the wart and cover with a bandage. The caustic effect of the garlic will cause the wart to blister and fall off in as little as one week.
  • Plantar warts are sensitive to heat and may disappear in a few weeks if you soak your feet in hot water (43?C to 45?C) for a about 15 minutes a day.
  • A popular folk remedy is to rub a juicy, freshly cut slice of raw potato over a wart
