The common wart

Ok, I have these two common warts on my finger, for over a year I have been trying everything from liquid wart remover, the little discs, as well as that freeze off stuff (3 times). Nothing was helping. Now they do not hurt or anything, they are just ugly and I want them gone. Because they do not hurt thought, I can't bring myself to go to the doctor and have then lanced or burned out or anything that drastic. So, I went online searching for some home remedy, I guess I was hoping I could go to an alternative medicine store, buy some black salve and wake up in the morning with no more warts. Well, I did not find that but I did find a home remedy that had me hysterical.
Now I grew up in Westchester, NY, not the city but not country area either, kind of in the middle. I now live in upstate, NY were it is country/hillbilly town. We have a joke that all these country people use duct tape for everything. If a shelf falls off the fridge, duct tape it back together, etc. So when I read that duct tape can be used to get rid of the common wart, I just lost it. But being at my wits end, I decided to give it a try; what could I lose? I used duct tape on my finger for a week, changing it every night. Guess what? One wart is gone, and the other is just about. I am amazed, duct tape can be used for just about anything! Maybe I should do my essay on the medical uses of duct tape!


  1. Wow Kimberly, I knew that duct tape was an amazing product, but I did not know it could be used for medical purposes. Good luck on fixing your problem. Peace. Norma
