I'm not sure if anyone has ever attempted this at home on their own, but I was able to surgically remove a 1cm plantar wart from the pad of my foot with my bare hands. After a few weeks of applying salic acid from acne pads I had, I decided enough was enough and I wanted the little devil out.

After just getting out of the shower I sat down and began scraping and pinching at the plantar wart which at first was deep in the skin and flush with the rest of my foot. After about 5-10 minutes of aggressive pinching and pulling, manipulating it to the surface as if it were a pimple; I had forced the wart to the surface, with it now appearing like a sizable pimple or cyst.

At this point I was able to grip it tightly with the nail of my thumb and index finger and literally ripped it from my foot completely intact leaving a small hole in my foot that I cleaned out, treated with antibacterial ointment and finally bandaged with gauze and tape.

Hope this helps anyone brave enough to attempt such an aggressive home remedy.

I've done the same with mine. I had mine for a year or two and really got fed up with them at some point. It was pretty painful but not excruciatingly so. And I applied bee propolis to suppress whatever viruses left, and they never came back (more than 5 years now).
