Had Plantar Warts on the bottom of my feet in High School. Doctor had me putting the salycitic acid plasters on them. All they did was make holes in my feet but did not get rid of them. I asked the girls on the swim team what they used, as it has spread throughout the girls locker room. They told me to take Desiccated Liver pills (in the vitamin section of the drug store) twice a day. I started taking them, took them with Orange Juice I remember because they are large pills. It took a little while but I kept taking the pills for about 6 months and they never came back.
I had them for years on my big toe and they only kept multiplying. I tried everything, but the only thing that actually worked was putting the Walgreen's liquid acid on them and taping them up with waterproof athlete's tape without removing the tape for days at a time. The longer I could keep the tape on, the better. I only replaced it when it fell off which was days or even a week later. I read something about using super strong waterproof tape and over time they are smothered, then your immune system notices them and destroys them accordingly. :) SOOOO happy to finally have the colonies of them gone from my toe and I will never do laser surgery again, what a rip off! I was on crutches for a week because it was on my left heel, a giant one, then a giant hole. (You'd think the docs know and tell you about these options, but they'd rather fry you.) Thank you internet and fellow human beings, I love you.
I made a nice and gross before and after pic of my big toe if anyone wants to see. :)
After having a stubborn plantar wart for 2 years I got rid of it using duct tape for multiple weeks, soaking it in epsom salt water, picking it out with tweezers and finally salicylic acid pads. I have created a blog with before and after photos and have gone into much more detail on my experience with it. One thing to take away from this is you can kill that wart! I see no links are allowed here, but if you're curious you can find it at stubbornwart. blogspotcom.com
PLANTERS WART ON FOOT HOME REMEDY
AFTER WEEKS OF TRIAL AND ERROR, I FOUND THE CURE THAT WORKS QUICK. NOT THIS SILLY 4 MONTHS STUFF!
DO THIS LIKE A SOLDIER
1. SOAK FOOT IN HOT WATER MIXED WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. 50 / 50 MIX. THATS HOT WATER, NOT WARM! GENTLY SCRUB OFF WART CALUS WITH EMORY PAD.
SOAK TWICE PER DAY FOR 30 MINUTES EACH TIME.
2. AFTER SOAK. PAPER TOWEL DRY FOR 5 MINUTES.
3. NOW PUT FOOT NEXT TO HOT / WARM FAN LIKE A LOW VOLUME HAIR DRYER OR ONE OF THOSE PLUG IN ELECTRIC HEATERS WITH BLOWER. DRY THE WART OUT!! FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES.
4. BUY THE salicylic ACID STICK THAT LOOKS LIKE CHAP STICK. SMEAR IT ON THE WART HEAVY! NOW EITHER PUT DUCT TAPE OVER OR GET ONE OF THOSE DONUT BANDAIDS FOR WARTS AND STICK ON OVER. KEEP ON ALL THE TIME EXCEPT WHEN DOING STEPS ABOVE.
NEVER COVER UP THIS STEP FOUR UNLESS WART IS SUPER DRY.
5. REPEAT AND KEEP USING
I got rid of plantars warts from at home, and this is how it worked for me.
I had plantars warts when I was in high school. I cannot remember how the doctor removed them eventually, but I remember using match-sticks that made my foot turn black and dry. But I do remember that was not the entirety of curing it.
So after coming back from Hawaii, I found a small plantars wart on my foot a few months later. I have since removed it, it came back a few weeks later, and I just removed it again.
How I Got Rid of It:
So after first recognizing it, I tried freezing it with Dr. Scholl's Freeze Away. I followed directions, and nothing happened at all.
Then I went to my local doctor, and she put the liquid nitrogen filled Q-tips on my plantars wart. It had a small bump on the top of it, and I felt fine after, for about a week. A week later it started hurting again.
So I decided to freeze it off myself. I exceeded the Freeze Away directions terribly, held it on for 90 seconds each time, 3 times in a row! It hurt a lot for a few days afterwards.
I also started the acid pads and the acid liquid immediately.
While I had the acid pads and liquid on there, I would sandpaper the dead tissue off as best as I could. I also hurt to sandpaper the alive surrounding tissue.
Then one day when I was pealing off the acid pad, a huge chunk of white flesh came off with it, and it looked just like an upside down wart. The place where it was on my foot had a dimple, and was tender flesh.
I went to see the expert doctor 2 days later (I already had the appointment planned), and he said it was gone.
So after 2 or so weeks of healing, I suddenly found a small bump where the wart was previously. I didn't chance it at all, and immediately froze it again, exactly the same; 90 seconds each, 3 times in a row, and now also 3 days in a row!
I applied the acid pads and liquid again, and after a week or so, I just ripped off a hunk of flesh that looked like the wart again, and again left a dimple underneath where it had been.
I don't know how I got it again, but if it happens a third time, I will go back to the expert and find out what to do to finally kill the virus.
As far as just getting rid of the wart itself, I recommend a (painful) solution of LOTS of freezing, acid liquid, and acid pads. The liquid is the best, but the pads stay on all day long. I typically use a band-aid instead of the large disks they provide, and they stay on my foot just as long.
Thank you for reading, I hope this helps someone out there!
Thyme oil worked for us. My son had a plantar wart for over 6 months. We tried freezing. We tried the normal wart medicine. We even tried scraping it with a scalpel then applying wart medicine.
Finally after reading this website, we scraped the wart with a scalpel, applied thyme oil, covered it with bandage tape, and by the second night 90% of the wart came off! We applied it one more time and the rest of the wart came off.
Thanks to everyone who suggested thyme oil
I have read every last remedy on this site and after a hard two weeks of Dr Scholls (who is this Doctor anyway?) and the Apple Cider Vinegar treatments that I concur, leave my house smelling like a salad. I'm going in deap as the damn wart. Since I don't even see the damn thing that feels like a rock in my foot, I have opted for the Thyme oil.
All the descriptions are accurate. I didn't use gloves, but after I felt my baby toe burn clean off, I removed all non essential beings from my house. I have zero patience for this bull****. I'm a bartender and server. So I'm on my feet and running at least six hours a day.
I don't know how I will manage...minus my little toe, but I think there is healing in the burn! The jury is still out... But I remain hopeful and thankful for all yalls advice.
salicylic acid and thyme oil.
I have been bothered by a plantar wart for over 10 years. Eventually, it turned into 2 in close proximity to each other. I really didn't know that it was a plantar wart at first, as I was playing sports I thought it was a blister that became a callus, until nothing could improve it. Once I realized what it was, I tried off and on over the years using the salicylic acid round pads, but I always got frustrated and I did not realize that you needed to seriously stick with it for it to succeed.
About 2 months ago, I became really serious about finding a solution to get rid of these. I have been trying to loose some weight but I was getting discouraged because my foot would be in so much pain after working out. I didn't really want to go to the doctor out of embarrassment and fear for what they might need to do to remove it. Then I found this website and I promised that if I found a solution I would give my experience. I can finally say that my warts have been removed!
I started with the salicylic acid round pads, but I used duct tape instead of the sticky bandages that come with the pads after reading others recommendations because the sticky things that come with it aren't practical and just loosen up halfway through the day. After about a week and half of that the warts loosened up and then I started the thyme oil. I would use a q-tip to apply the oil to the wart, using a clean side after everytime I touched the wart. At the beginning, I would still use the duct tape, then switched to clear blister protectors (like strong thin bandaids) and they were easier to remove to apply the oil twice per day. There were a few days where my foot was so tender and pain that I could not sleep, but then I quickly started seeing results so I kept with it. After about 3 weeks of this the warts were gone! I have been using vitamin e on the new skin, and I worked out today for the first time in years with no foot pain!
Good luck to anyone, I don't claim to know anything, but this is what worked for me!
I had a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot for about two years. Tried duct tape, vinegar, salycilic acid, and cypress oil. Nothing worked and my wart actually got worse and was incredibly painful. Finally stopped everything and started taking a multi vitamin, fish oil, extra vitamin d, and Tagamet daily. I also took emergen-c every few days for an extra dose of vitamin c and I stopped messing with it. I let it air out (no more band aids even) and only occasionally used a file to even it out a bit so I didn't have a huge lump. My wart quickly started feeling better and tonight I'm happy to say I was able to pull off the black scab with no pain! I'm not sure what helped most but I'm definitely going to keep up the vitamin regiment as it can't hurt! I'm so relieved and super excited to be able to walk normally again and maybe even splurge on a pedicure after 2 long years.
I been having multiple warts growing on the bottom of one of my toes for four months now and the pain has been extremely unbearable. I tried a few .vitaminsdifferent branbecauseds of sylic acid and the treatment made my warts worst. Upon using the sylic acid my skin became very tender and painful thus creating a thick layer of hard skin. I regret ever trying this because it was a waste of time for me. I read someones home remedy on here about using 100 % vitamin E oil and so I kicked it up a notch by buying the the Vitamin E oil 15,000 IU from the beauty vitamint supplysupply store along with Palmer's cocoa butter formula from Walmart with more vitamin E (not the lotion the thick vaseline oil type in a round container) I would take a shower clean it good and dry it thoroughly....then apply the Vitamin E with a cotton swab and a thick chunck of the Palmers cocoa butter....before putting on my socks and shoes. There is no need to cover because the ointments are enough suffocation but be sure to use thick white socks 100% cotton only. The treatment is natural and works if you apply it on a daily basis. Using colored or thin sick is not good it will onlyirritate it. ( trust me) after days of applications the wart should start to turn black meaning its staying to go away. No need to cover and give ur feet some air time too during the nights after a long day of work or school.... This really helps so try it out and be patient.
