Please Help! I am in need of a flat wart remedy. For the longest time I had a single one on my leg and had no idea what it was so I continued shaving as normal not knowing what it was or that shaving spread the virus. Now I have tons on my legs and am terrified I will spread them further and spread them to my children and husband. Has anyone had these? How can I get rid of them? The dermatologist just suggested to stop shaving the area to prevent further spreading which I have done. But there must be something else I can try. Any help is appreciated! I am desperate!

Oh Mama,
I feel your pain. I had them for 10 years all up and down my arm. I never gave them much thought but when they started spreading, I wanted to do something about it. I tried freezing, scraping and a whole host of other painful ways to try to remove them and nothing worked. Finally, I read that Oil of Oregano is a powerful anti viral so, I started it (you want the wild with a high percentage of cavrecol) and within 2 weeks they were completely cleared up.

I've since heard that Olive Leaf is a better antiviral but, the Oil of Oregano worked for me.

Good luck!

Also, if you have access the "latex" from an unripe fig or fig leaves works to remove warts. It might take a few weeks though.
Just pick a fig and put the white sap stuff on your wart.
If you have access to a fig tree that is.

Subbing to this thread as I have been looking for a way to get rid of them for a long time! Amcal can you elaborate on the dosing with oil of oregano and where to purchase?
TIA!

I've heard of using oil of oregano too. It sounds like it might work best for your situation.
I had some spreading around my fingers and used apple cider vinegar on them 1-2x/day. Gave them attention, rubbed the area during the day. They cleared up pretty well with that. In a big way, I think consistency is the key.
There's a homeopathic remedy wart wonder I also tried once before, and I had success with that too for some stubborn warts on my feet. That's also a topical treatment, dunno if that would be best for 'tons' or not.

Pink Gal - there are several brands of Oil of Oregano - I got mine at the health food store. This is the one I used:
http://www.vitacost.com/Source-Natur...Oil-of-Oregano

You want wild oregano with a high percentage of carvecrol.

go to a dermatologist. They can laser them off in under one minute. I had a bunch removed after having them for a year and trying all home remedies out there to get rid of them. After a single treatment from the dermatologist, I am now flat-wart free!

Thanks for the replies! I did go to the dermatologist and got a few frozen off but a few came back and there are some new ones. My copay is $30 so I cannot afford to go every time I see new ones. I think I will try oil of oregano to try to fix it from the inside out and be "proactive" rather than reactive. I would love to hear other's success stories. I need a pick me up as these warts have got me down a bit. Pink gal...keep me posted as what you will be using and if it works! I would love to keep in touch.
