    This isn't really a secret (I found out about it on the Internet, after all)... I just can't believe it freaking works! icon_eek.gif

    I've had planters warts twice. The first time, I went to the podiatrist for weeks of scraping and applying acid to it. The second time, I did some research on the internet and found Duct Tape as a home remedy. Much to my surprise, it worked faster than the visits to the podiatrist -- not to mention being pain-free and cost-free!

    My mom has been prone to planters warts too, and I recently talked her into trying the Duct Tape solution. She's been using it for about two weeks and hers are almost gone.

    Duct Tape really can do anything! icon_cool.gif

    What I did to get rid of the wart (and kinda gross!) was take a very sharp knife and cut off all of the skin around the wart itself. Then I took duct tape and duct taped around over the good skin and took a can of computer duster.

    Worked great and it fell off.

    Just FYI, it's PLANTAR warts, not Planters warts. And I, too, have heard that duct tape can work on them, and certain other warts as well. Never tried it myself. But when I had warts as a teenager, I used to do surgery on them with a clean X-acto knife, digging down into the center and removing the tiny black seeds (these were seed warts).

    More recently, I developed warts on my fingers for about a year after I started on the AIDS meds, and the doctor told me it was my immune system getting back up to speed. The warts were part of an autoimmune response to the virus that caused them. After a year, they disappeared on their own.

    I'm from the south, so naturally I believe that duct tape is a miracle product. icon_biggrin.gif

    Plantar Warts are warts that occur primarily (or only) on the feet. The word is from the Latin plantaris or planta, pertaining to the sole of the foot.

    I had no idea what Plantar Warts were too. icon_lol.gif

    And sadly (or thankfully, ROFL) I have no warts to try out the magical medicinal wart removing duct tape on anyway. icon_razz.gif

    I wish I had known this when I was swimming as a high school student. I was plagued with them, and they got quite painful!

    Hmm, this is something to take note of since I had a nasty one that took two years to kill off.

    After many painful, weekly liquid nitrogen freezes, the sucker wouldn't die. Finally, another doctor prescribed a very powerful acidic compound that after about three months left a gaping hole in my wart less foot. R.I.P.

    Hallelujah

    A viral infection that you can catch rather easily. usually from coomon areas areas such as gym floors etc.

    MAn... I wish I knew this stuff when I was younger too! I had them frozen off twice, acid treatment, and 2 laser surgeries before they were finally gone. And I almost think the build up of scar tissue is worse now than the plantar warts ever were.

    Many years ago, I had one removed by electrocauterization... never again. Since then, I've discovered the power of 35% hydrogen peroxide, which is dangerous nasty stuff that has to be handled with great care. After soaking the foot in hot water to soften the wart, cut and/or shave away as much dead tissue off the top of the wart as possible. Then with an eyedropper, apply a tiny drop of peroxide to the wart. If you've removed enough skin, it will sting. After a few minutes, wipe the wart with a kleenex. Wait a day or two and repeat, wait another day or two and repeat again.

    That could explain why I've never had them. I've always worn flip flips in the changing room and the showers of my gym. I also give them a good scrub at home a few times a week.

    Per my podiatrist... it's quite common to get this virus in your foot if something breaks the skin of the bottom of your foot. For example, if you get a splinter in your foot or a crack in the skin or something.

    That's what happened to me the first time I got a plantar wart... it was in the exact spot I recently had a splinter in my foot.

    I've got one right now. Maybe I'll try the duct tape.
