Anyone ever tried it?

Did it work?

Details and anecdotes appreciated.

I had two warts on my index finger for - yes - 9.5 years. Bazooka, duct tape, freezing, surgical scooping out, nothing worked. They just vanished pretty much overnight in the end. I think some warts are stubborn.

I think the theory is that anything that starves them of oxygen works, though.

Chop up a clove of garlic and put it on the wart/verucca overnight (requires a plaster). I had a verucca that was taking over my foot, I weren't bothered about it, I had carried it around for 18mth. Other half was not so pleased and finally declared war. No normal treatments worked, so tried it. After that it went.

In reply to adstapleton: a razor blade and disinfectant at age 14 worked for me! didn't have the nerve to tell my mum what I'd done so had to agree with her that she was right and they do just go on their own!

Though probably not for genital warts.

What on earth do you do with duct tape? Stick it on and rip it off like waxing?

Doctors use duck tape on themselves. It cuts off the oxygen supply to the organisms. I used electrical tape on a verruca and, though it took a while, it did work.

A postman told me ( that was over 30 years ago) that the white sap from dandelion leaves should be applied to warts. This turns them black and then they die and disappear. I followed his advice and it worked.

I've heard dabbing on Tea Tree Oil, helps to shift them.

"It's not clear exactly how the duct tape sends warts packing, according to the report, "but, as with other therapies, it may involve stimulation of the patient's immune system through local irritation."

Surely you mean the white sap that comes out of the stems rather than the leaves (if I recall correctly).
