I tried the duct tape, water proof sports tape, froze by dr twice, and home freezing kit. Nothing worked. So I went to the wart section at the store and loaded up on bandaids and picked up the dr scholles planter wart pads. The pads come like a round bandaid with a sticky medicated center. I stuck one on and put a bandaid over it. I checked it the next day and it had moved a little. Burning some of the wart and a lot of my toe. My wart is in the bend of my big toe. So, I had to cut the pad in half and cut it n the shape of the wart. U just want the medicated part just on the wart. The acid is 40% unlike the others which is 17%. My wart turned white within a few days and fell out within 2 weeks leaving a hole. After the wart fell out, I soaked a cotton ball n listerine to kill any lingering virus for 2 minutes. No pain, stinging or burning from the listerine. My 11 year old son had one too. We done this treatment together and his is gone too. His took a little longer because his bandaid and pad would fall off n his sleep. Recommend sleeping with a sock.. Change the pad and bandaid every other day but replace it immediately till the wart falls out. It looks gross when it falls out but heals super super fast!! The hole fills n by the next day or 2 and is completely healed within 2 weeks. This remedy takes 2 weeks (or less) instead of months and months.

I recently just killed one of these horrible plantar warts. I took blackmores cp 57, pc 73, zinc and vitamin c tablets, I soaked my foot in apple cider vinegar,I put pads soaked in acv vinegar on it all day n night, I even drank apple cider vinegar mixed with water even though it nearly killed me and I had 1 treatment of liquid nitrogen from the doctor so unfortunately I'm not sure what worked but if I ever get another one I'm just going to have the liquid nitrogen put straight on it even though it hurt a lot for about 24 hours. Just sooo glad it's gone because I couldn't even walk properly on my foot for about 4 weeks.

I originally had a cluster of warts over an inch in diameter plus a few small ones on my other foot and near my toes. I was so unhappy and it hurt to walk, I thought it was going to be there forever until I tried these remedies.

I used a combination of salicylic acid (liquid that dries, you can get it at the pharmacy) and duct tape for about 3 months. I would alternate using the acid and the tape, sometimes both if the skin could handle it. I would peel off a layer each time/sand it down with a pumice. At some points it was extremely painful and bloody, and I could barely put any pressure when I walked, but now my foot is almost completely back to normal.

It seems the warts bleed and you see dark spots (dried blood) and thick white dead skin throughout the process until one day when you peel the skin off you see healthy skin underneath instead of the bleeding wart. Other small warts on my foot died quickly and there was a small hole in the skin for a while before the skin grew back.

I found the best way of doing it is to use acid for a day, then use duct tape for two days (without removing it or if it starts coming off, replace it immediately), then peel off the dead layer of skin and repeat.

Good luck!

My daughter had two plantars warts, which had grown to be nickel sized. One under her toes and another on her heal. Horrible and painful. We've tried everything over several years trying to kill them. Froze em, acid, dermatologists, podiatrists, duct tape, masking tape, even the sap from some tree that grows in Japan. Nothing killed them. My poor nine year old has really suffered and today they are finally gone after 5 days of treatment. Yahoo!!!!!! Thanks to this site!!!! Thank you!!
Here's what we did....
~once daily soak for 20 minutes in Braggs apple cider vinegar. 2cups pure. I warmed it for her. (I bought a gallon jug..still have half of it)
~after the soak, I made a paste of crushed aspirin and apple cider vinegar. I pulled the cotton tips off Q-tips and saturated them with the liquidy paste. Then placed the soaked cotton on the warts. Bandaged the the cotton on. Socks over the top. Waited til bedtime the next day to do it again.
5 DAYS AND THEY ARE GONE. She was able to pick them off with tweezers tonight!!!!
We are sooooo thankful and happy!!!
YAY to natural remedies!!!!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you : D

She did say it was painful the first three nights and had a little trouble sleeping, but she did it!!! Yay!!!

I know this may sound wierd but I tried everything for my plantars wart from gorilla glue and duct tape to cider and none of that worked. What did wor was swimming in the LAKE! I know weird but it worked after that day never had any problems with it again. It started healing immediately!

I know it sounds crazy, but Right Guard spray deoderant, applied 1x or 2x daily, has cured more than a couple plantars warts on bottom of my feet. Completely removed any sign of the wart after just a couple weeks, but I continued to apply for about 4 weeks total. Prior dermatologist treatments by burning, acid, topical scraping did not work. The Right Guard remedy was suggested to me by a podiatrist. Has to be spray, though, not roll-on. Maybe it's something in the spray atomizer. I don't know, but its worked multiple times for me !

Once or twice daily, apply Wart Remover Liquid with Salicylic Acid (17% w/w.) Hours later, pick at wort with tweezers to remove dead skin. After this step, apply generous amounts of 'Frankinsense' to the wort(s.) This is a natural concoction you may buy at Amazon.com which helps to eradicate the wort(s) pain-free. The salicylic acid, however, is NOT pain-free but is effective when used with 'Frankinsense.' Follow these steps until the wort(s) disappears, and then continue to apply 'Frankinsense' for at least 2 weeks.

I had tried just the salicylic acid, but it had not been working so I looked up homeopathic remedies for the plantar wart and discovered that 'Frankinsense' may be helpful. I started applying it daily along with salicylic acid and together they rid my foot of at least 10 worts in a matter of weeks. There was only some pain when I only used the salicylic acid, but the 'Frankinsense' was completely pain-free. The pain was not unbearable, anyway. Follow these steps and you will have very happy, wort-free feet. While doing several sports and often having sweaty feet, this remedy still worked.

For best results try to have air reach the infected area as much as possible; e.g. wear sandals instead of shoes, socks, or slippers when possible.
Worts spread through moist areas, so when showering, try to avoid contact between the floor and the wort(s.) This will stop others from gaining their own worts, and it will help prevent the spread on your own feet.

I just want to say I've never posted on a 'remedy' board before, but I swore if I conquered my decade-old plantar wart I would. First, I'd like to say I tried every treatment besides having the wart cut out and nothing worked. What finally killed the plantar's wart on the bottom of my foot was this: apple cider vinegar, BC powdered aspirin, cotton swabs and bandaids. Each night for three weeks I soaked my foot in apple cider vinegar. Afterward, I soaked the tip of a cotton swab in a paste made of BC Powder and apple cider vinegar. I tore the tip of the swab off and stuck it in the indentation where the wart was. I then covered it with a strong, stetchy bandaid, though any bandaid would do. One night, the pain was so intense I had to get up and take the bandage off. Once a day I would take sharp tweezers and pick the dead skin of the wart out. About 9 days in, I was able to pull the 'black seeds' out. So weird, but it didn't really hurt. I kept up the ritual for about another week, and then soaked my foot in a small tub (I used a plastic shoe container) each morning while I was putting my makeup on.

I've waiting three months to post this, to make sure it worked. For a time, I could still see the white crater and worried I wasn't healing. I was, thank goodness. I'd encourage you to try. Tenacity seems to be the trick. Also, the powdered aspirin pushed me over the hump; I'd tried apple cider alone before.

I know how devastating plantar warts can be. I didn't want to show my feet to ANYONE. I skipped a lot of girl pedicure parties and the thing acutally hurt!

I hope I've helped you. I spent many nights reading these boards, looking for answers.

My son had about 15 plantar’s wart on his right foot. We twice tried freezing with liquid nitrogen at the doctors with lots of pain and no effect (perhaps even more warts as a result?). We tried over-the-counter salic acid treatments – causing painful calluses and warts going under the callus. We then tried apple cider vinegar after seeing this and other sites. AMAZING results. We started 6 months ago with one wart at a time – since there are reports of pain. Our method - after showing or soaking foot in water – soaked a portion of a cotton ball, which matches the size of the wart, in apple cider vinegar and applied to the wart and then applied a band-aid to hold the cotton ball in place on the wart - every night a bed time. For us, after about 4 or 5 nights, the top layer of skin and wart was dead and none have come back and all have 100% healed skin. We are on the last “mother wart” and that is also just about completely gone. I cannot overstate how amazed and happy we are with the results. Easy to do. Do it at your house. Very little pain. Warts are gone. It you have plantar’s warts – please try this.
