I had warts on my foot for about 5 years, I only started to try to remove them in the last 2-3 years. I initially used salicylic acid it was good at reducing the wart but overall made things worse as the warts started spreading and in the end i had 4 major warts on my foot. So I tried a different approach and researched the internet for the best method to remove warts and a lot of people mentioned duct tape and so I thought I will give it a go.

I was skeptical at first about this method, but I had nothing to lose so I went along with it anyways. I bought waterproof duct tape that it super sticky to ensure my wart skin got no air at all! Before placing the duct tape on my wart I would apply generously salicylic acid, wait for it to dry and then put on the duct tape over a LARGE area of the skin to ensure the wart was getting no oxygen at all.

Every 3-4 days I would replace the duct tape (or sooner if the duct tape was loose or about to come off), make sure you pumice the wart (not too aggressively as you do not want it to bleed) put on some more salicylic acid and then put a new duct tape on the wart. In addition to this I took daily 4 times the recommended dosage of Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin E, C and B as these are known to support the immune system.

There is a way to tell if you are doing it correctly, basically after about a week or 2 you will really start to notice when you take off the duct tape that the skin is peeling, looks rancid and there is a really bad smell to it as it is basically dead skin.

After 2 months of doing this the warts were definitely reducing in size and in my view it looked like they were waning as they were peeling off more frequently and was not spreading like before when I tried to get rid of them. However after those 2 months I made a decision to stop putting on salicylic acid and duct tape as my skin was starting to look really foul and the stench when I took off the duct tape was unbearable. I was also thinking that maybe the wart is now dead if the surrounding skin is dead.

So after stopping the treatment my skin was peeling and starting to heal again and luckily enough bits of the wart was also falling off, however the wart was still there. I'm very pleased to say that a month later I looked at my foot one day and was in for a huge shock - the wart had gone!!!!!! I was so surprised, it must have came off without me realising (probably in the shower). I believe my guess was probably right in the wart died after the 2 months of duct tape and acid put on it., it was just a matter of time for it to peel off.

It's such a huge relief to get rid of the wart, no more salicylic acid, no more wearing sock in bed (to stop spreading) or putting duct tape on my skin. I recommend people try my method, but you must be disciplined and ensure you follow it rigorously for it to work.
