    Wonder: does it work for regular warts? We used wart remover, could have sworn we pulled the root out, but it came back. It's on her hand.
     
  4. You'll have to check for the particulars but it has been posted if you cover with duck tape (change daily) within a two week period it should be dead. I would do a net search on "uses for duck tape"

    Sounds crazy but worth a try! Susan

    I have a stubborn one--I also thought I got the root out, but it came back. :waa:

    For me, the pain is associated with the skin build-up over and around the wart, which puts pressure on that spot. Every third day, I use one of those callus shavers (in the foot section) to remove the raised dead skin over the callus, and it pretty much eliminates the pain.

    I have heard from friends that the Duck tape does indeed work well.
    Wasn't going to ask them how they found out about it. :eek:
    Then yesterday on the News, it came up again and the Doc there said it does seem to work well... so must be something to it.

    So far her wart does not hurt. My husband said ducktape works because it gradually pulls off layers of skin. I wonder if there's also something in the glue or if it suffocates it somehow. As long as it works *_~

    Under a full moon...rub a cut potato on the wart, then rub a copper penny on the wart, put the penny between the pieces of potato, then bury it on the south side of an oak tree.

    warts will be gone before the next full moon

    Duct tape is actually medically-proven! My husband prescribes it to his patients all the time!

    You can also put compound W on and cover it with duct tape.

    ==============================================
    http://www.health911.com/remedies/rem_wart.htm

    Tape Cover the wart with any kind of medical or first aid tape or a
    bandaid and leave on around the clock for three weeks, removing only
    to change the tape. This may cure the wart.

    A recent study (2002) done at the Madigan Army Medical Center in
    Tacoma,WA found that placing a piece of duct tape the exact size of the
    wart over it was successful in removing the wart 85% of the time and
    was better than the standard method of freezing the wart (60%
    successful). So give it a try: place the tape on the wart for six days,
    then remove it; soak the wart in water; gently scrape the wart with
    an emery board or pumice stone; leave the tape off for a night;
    repeat for up to a month.

    Salicylic acid (15%) Salicylic acid is a more aggressive treatment
    method and should be used with care as products containing
    salicylicacid can burn your skin. Products with this ingredient work
    by destroying wart tissue. Check with your doctor or pharmacist for
    suggested products, and be sure to read the label and follow the
    directions carefully. To use these products, apply them only to
    the wart, not on the surrounding skin; allow to dry thoroughly.
    Do this twice daily and soak and rub the dead wart tissue away
    before reapplying. If you get pain or irritation, stop for a few days,
    then start again. For small flat warts, apply the salicylic acid with a
    toothpick or other small applicator, and follow the above directions.
    The British Medical Journal surveyed 50 trials and reported that
    thisremedy cured nongenital warts in 75% of the cases as opposed
    to 48% using a placebo.


    =============================================
    http://www.mdw.army.mil/news/ducttapewarts.html

    Half the patients were treated with cryotherapy (freeze treatment
    withdrops of liquid nitrogen) and half had duct tape placed over the
    warts.

    After six consecutive days, doctors asked patients to remove the duct
    tape, soak the wart in water and remove dead surface skin with an
    emeryboard or pumice stone. This allowed healthy skin to replace
    diseased tissue. Patients then applied new patches of duct tape the
    following day and wear them for an additional six-day period before
    the process repeated itself.

    Focht said the duct tape was cut to fit the size of the wart on hands
    and feet without applying any additional adhesive or gauze.

    Cryotherapy patients received applications of liquid nitrogen every two
    to three weeks for up to six treatments.

    According to Focht's study, 85 percent of the patients using duct tape
    saw their warts disappear, while only 60 percent of the patients using
    cryotherapy had the same effect.

    Focht hypothesizes that the treatment works by depriving the wart of
    oxygen and triggering an autoimmune response that fights infection.
    A wart is essentially a benign viral tumor.
