I have heard of applying apple cider vinegar on a bandage and then leaving it on for several days will help to remove warts. I have never tried it, but it couldn't hurt.

I tried this a bit, but when I tried to put the tape over the cotton with ACV it would not stick and I got frustrated and gave up. Maybe I will try the ACV at night and wear socks?

My son's podiatrist said that duct tape alone would cure them, but it takes like 2 months of contant wear--so no air gets to the wart. It worked for my son!

hth!

I've used clear duct tape(can't go in public with a grey toe,lol) & the acid stuff. It works right away. You have to let the acid stuff dry first which would probalby be the same for the apple cider, let it dry & then put the tape on.

I used duct tape for a week and then forgot to bring it on a trip. When I got home, they were gone. I think the duct tape irritates them and provokes some kind of immune response. Not sure how it works but I don't think it's due to lack of air. At any rate, it doesn't work for everyone but I had a nasty little cluster of them and they were gone so quickly. I'm a believer.

I actually asked my holistic doctor about this on Wednesday, mine aren't plantar, not genital, whatever the third kind is called! Anyway, she said duct tape - 6 days on, take it off, scrub the wart with a pumice stone to expose the "tentacles" & then 6 more days of duct tape. She said to repeat this for 2 months.

I was ecstatic to find the clear duct tape too!! Now I can't wait to try this!

Hey, it took me about 3 weeks of having duct tape just about 25/7. The only time I took it off was to use epsom salt soaks. After three weeks I used salicylic acid pads for a week or so and completely killed the wart. It was really far implanted into my foot and this method worked amazingly. I have no mark whatsoever anymore. I have before and after photos on my blog if you're interested. Hope this helps!
