    Have you been to a doctor/podiatrist?

    And have you tried duct tape? Even doctors say it’s effective.

    i used to have a large wart on my foot for YEARS and finally i went to my dermatologist and he burnt it with some chemical… i think it was hot nitrogen… could be making it up… anyway he applied it for a few seconds with a Q-tip and it was SO SO painful (hurt for the next few days) and then he gave some really smelly liquid medication that i had to apply at night for a while and a few weeks later i looked at my foot an it was gone!!! it’s been three years and i haven’t seen a wart since bli ayan hara! i was also able to use the medication without that chemical thing for smaller warts. Good Luck!

    best thing to do is ignore it.

    I had some warts on my hand for many years, tried burning, freezing, silver coins, duct tape, etc. Then I thought, I am paying so much attention to this wart. If someone paid this much attention to me, I’d likely hang around, too. So I ignored it.

    Pretty soon the wart went away on its own.

    lol ronrsr, i liked that line of yours:

    “if someone paid this attention to me, I’d likely hang around, too.”

    i thought that wart on my foot would also go away on its own, that’s why it took me so many years to visit my dermatologist… but it was slowly getting bigger, not better.

    Dear hodulashem, it took many years before the warts feelings were hurt, and it decided to leave on its own. It is not the quickest fix around.

    but with the jesting aside, warts do seem to have a life of their own, and when they are finished, they just go away. If you remove them earlier, they seem to come back. There is some evidence that if you really believe in the cure, it is more likely to remove the wart permanently. Perhaps prayer is a good supplement to any treatment you might get.

    Sounds like you need to try a new podiatrist or a dermatologist. Duct tape works, but most people don’t have the patience because you have to keep it covered for a long time.

    I had a one a good few yrs. ago & even started getting infected, and “duofilm” liquid helped wonders! I shmeared it on once or twice a day and within a several days it was gone and forgotten Bh. never heard from it again. I’d highly recommend it.

    i don’t really understand why a podiatrist would be able to help… a wart can appear on other places- not just the foot, it’s a skin problem…

    Dear Hodulashem,

    Podiatrists provide wart treatment because warts on the bottoms of the feet (plantar warts) are common but are particularly painful and troublesome. A wart on your hand or face may be ugly and inconvenient, but a wart that you are forced to step on whenever you walk can be very painful and detrimental to your mobility.

    A plantar wart (undersole of the foot) is a little different from a typical wart on your finger. it really does require professional treatment as it is very painful.

    it is painful at times but how does duct tape work? and i did duofilm it did NOT work it seems all the things that worked for others are not working for me and its REALLY frustrating as its downright ugly and painful at times.

    I had some warts and used apple cider vinegar on it. Within a week it was gone (though it takes longer for the scar to fade, it did eventually). Try it! I had one wart frozen and it was SO painful and took much longer to get rid of. You just need to put a little apple cider vinegar on it, put a bandaid on top and repeat each night. (You might need nose-plugs while you do it but it’s worth it!)

    I caught one in camp on the sole of my foot. It was SOO painful I couldnt walk. I went to a dr and he tried soaking it and then scraping it off. Plus I used dr. scholls sticky thing that you put on the wart. It really wasnt getting better. I was getting married and was terrified that I wont be able to dance normally. Guess what I came home from the wedding and I it was oozing a bit. Within a week it was gone. I have no clue what made it run away but b”h for that.

    I had a wart on the side of my left thumb for years. It didn’t bother me.

    Then I developed one on my left wrist which would get irritated from my watch. I had it removed by electrocautery. Within a few days the one on my thumb (not treated) disappeared.

    Warts are not well understood..

    Probably couldn’t stand the loud band music!!!! Or it thought your dancing was an earthquake and it was fleeing for its sole… (ouch, even I hate that pun!)

    Don’t know exactly, but I think the virus needs a certain amount of air to survive -you lessen that and it will usually die.

    Dermotologist told my son to get angry & yell at his wart on his finger to go away. I thought he was joking but he said he was being serious. He scraped it a drop to make it bleed. A few days later my son banged his finger against a table and it fell off and never came back again, B”H.

    Many years ago, my right hand was so full of warts, I kept them covered with bandaids. I met a friend who asked me if I was hiding my warts. SHe then gave me the following advice: Buy selenium tablets in a health food store and take one in the morning with an egg, cooked any way. I looked up selenium,found it to be a safe mineral, and took her advice. I even gave it to my 6 year old daughter who at the time was also suffering from warts. Within 4 weeks her warts were gone, within 6 weeks mine were gone. I’ve given this advice over the years to many people and it always seemed to help. So, Hatzlacha.

    For warts on the fingers or toes, which stick out, Duct Tape is the best treatment I’ve found. It’s even cheap and non-chemical. Wrap a piece, ripped to the width you need, around the finger. That’s it! Change it once a week. Depending on how long you’ve had it, it will go away in 2-?? weeks.

    Plantar warts (on the sole of the foot) are a different story. Since they grow UP, into the foot, duct tape doesn’t help. If it’s newish, an OTC cure may help, but likely you’ll need to see a dermatologist for Liquid Nitrogen. The kind that goes on with a Q-Tip is not as strong as the kind that’s sprayed on, so you may need to keep trying. Warning: it HURTS! during the application, and for hours and/or days after. However, it does usually work after 1-2 treatments.

    My doctor said it’s important to treat warts ASAP, bec. they go away faster if they’re newer, but more impotantly, bec. they “shed virus” wherever you go, to other parts of your body and to other people! Any tiny microscopic cut is a potential entry for the virus.

    Good luck!!

    I have a wart on my right forefinger for about 20 years. I have it frozen with the liquid nitrogen and I put stuff the dr gave me and it helps somewhat but not entirely. I take the hardest sand paper and I rub the wart when it is dry to lessen the hard knobbly part. I remember many years ago, I had numerous warts on my fingers (on the palms, and a women told me to take a clove and hold it with a tweezer and put a match to the clove to amke it hot and then put it on the wart. I did that and they all went away. It was killing me for a few days, but it helped.

    GORLITZ: I will try the selenium. How many mg for the selenium? And, do you really need to have the egg with it?

    Gut Shabbos to all!

    two more ideas that worked on two friends of mine-only one problem u gotta be very patient..she put a strip of onion on each cluster of warts. taped on for the night and removed in the morning..her hands are clear..

    the other one is a bit easier but u stii have to persevere..she put one tiny drop of CALLOUS remover on each wart each night her hands are clear as well.

    both of these remedies take about 30 -50 days……

    Why don’t you try salicylic acid 40% and pare it down with a blade once a week? The OTC acid isn’t strong enough.

    Does anyone have any good advice for toenail fungus? I really don’t want to stay on antibiotics for a few months (which I hear is the recommended practice).

    To 1st timer,

    It’s not antibiotics, it’s anti-fungals.

    There is a prescription product called Loprox -it comes in a lotion and in a nail lacquer. You have to file down the nail every so often, but it usually will solve the problem. This can take months or longer, but you don’t take it internally.
