Gorilla Glue! Gorilla Glue! Use Gorilla Glue to suffocate plantar warts. I learned that on this site. THANK YOU
June 11, My 7yo son was diagnosed with a wart on the ball of his foot. By July 1, it was noticeably gone. It had been there at least a month. We thought it was a callous.
(Remember to always wash your hands after dealing with the wart.)
- duct tape and OTC wart remover as his MD suggested. Tape wouldn't stay on his foot. The OTC wart remover liquid turned to jelly within 2 days of using it AND it burned out the skin around the wart. Did nothing to the callous covering the wart.
- soaked his feet in bleach water. I knew that would kill germs and soften the callous.
- filed the callous with disposable emery board daily for first few days
- covered with clear nail polish when I realized the duct tape wouldn't stay
- covered white vinegar soaked cotton ball with bandage and put on hit foot. I think this turned the callous white and softened much more.
- always kept a water proof bandage on it even though they would fall off, too
I did all of this during the first 2 weeks! I was very diligent and frustrated that this would probably take 6-8 weeks to be gone!
FINALLY, I tried Gorilla Glue (not the super glue version) with the clog free top. I applied it on a Tuesday of the 3rd week. Let it dry then covered with bandage. Removed both carefully Thursday night. It seemed like the wart was gone. But, I reapplied. When we removed the bandage on Sunday night, the glue was stuck to it. We carefully pulled both off and there was definitely a small hole but not deep. I put antibacterial cream on it for the night. Following morning, I covered it again with glue just in case. Days later, we know it's gone. There is no hard knot inside his foot.
If this happens again, I will condense the treatment to the following:
- soak foot in bleach water for 20 minutes
- File the callous
- Soak a tiny cotton ball in white vinegar and attach with bandage for as long as he can take it
- Cover the wart with Gorilla Glue then a bandage. But, bandage probably isn't needed.
- A few days later, remove glue carefully and repeat the steps above until it's gone.
