My 6 year old son had about 18-20 plantar warts on his toes. Three were very large and there were clusters of small warts. They were spreading rapidly. We tried the potato treatment with no luck. I love essential oils and had recently used Thyme oil to cure a very stubborn toe fungus that I had struggled with for years. Using Thyme oil cured the entire nail within 2 weeks. Since it worked for me and I still had the oil, I decided to try it on my son. I was worried about any treatments that might cause pain because my son has a very low pain tolerance. The first night he washed his feet and we applied the oil neat (undiluted) and covered with a sock. No pain, no tears. We repeated each night and noticed new skin growing under the warts and the warts being pushed up. By day 7, we were able to pull dead skin with 12 warts! Within 12 days of applying Thyme oil each night, all warts are gone! No pain at all! I used Young Living brand oil, not sure if that matters. I hope this helps.
