Quick Removal of Plantar Warts

I tried all over the counter meds but found a foolproof way without really spending lots of money or time.

Get some Dr. Scholl's little round bunion pads (or the generic brand as long as it has an adhesive side to stick to your foot). Take one round pad and cut it into 1/4 sizes so the round pad is slightly larger than your wart. Wipe the wart with hydrogen peroxide first then dry wipe and stick the pad over the wart.


You must change the pad every shower or bath and it takes about two weeks to kill the wart. What happens is the wart has no air and the moisture slowly deadens the skin in and around the wart. Just like when you have peeling dead skin from standing in water too long.

After two weeks, use a sharp matt knife and pick the small chunk of dead wart out, sometimes it takes three weeks. You can usually pick out the dead wart and the tail which extends down into the foot.

Afterwards keep your foot clean and dry. Do not walk barefoot for awhile. It might be slightly sore for a few days where the dead tail attached down into the good skin but not very.

I've tried this twice before and worked both times.

A vinegar soaked collon ball taped to the wart with a water proof bandaid (the large kind) at night works too. Use strong cider vinegar.

You can also use duct tape. Pressure helps to get rid of the wart.


Be very careful not to get the wart on your hands though. You might want to wear gloves.

That sounds painful. You know cutting the dead skin off and out.
