    Unhappy Wart

    Got a dang wart on my foot of all places. Just shy of my little two on the soft, fleshy bit of the foot. I remember having warts on my hands as a teenage and liquid nitrogen treatment. Never again! Any recommendations that won't cripple me?

    I had the liquid nitrogen treatment as a kid also and it was not good. Haven't had any warts in a long time. I had read somehwere recently that putting a small piece of duct tape on the wart would starve it for oxygen and kill it. Don't know if it really works or not but it's cheap and could be worth a try. Not sure how long but I would think a week or so.

    crush up an aspirin and mix with a drop of water. apply to affected area and bandaid it. will take awhile but it will work
    the commonly available wart remover is salcylic acid based. aspirin also contains it.
    well actually it is a modified salcylic acid but it works

    the best and 2nd fastest route is acupuncture. within a few treatments it will fall out. have had a few planters warts removed this way.
    the acupuncturist will do a star of needles usually 5 around the wart.

    fastest route, battery acid

    I just grab them with pliers and cut them off with a razor. Had a planters on my foot that felt like I was pulling it out all the way to my knee. That one hurt real bad!

    Good morning
    Removed my first wart with my Buck 101 while sitting in the tank commander turret cupolo while in Germany about 73. That left a good blood trail. My left didget finger print still looks odd.
    Moved on to Battery acid as my cure. Far less painful and you will not need to explain to any LT's why all the blood on the turret floor. Use a squared off wood or plastic dipper. Put the drops in the center of the wart. In the morning and evening are my application times. Has a pleasant aroma that draws vultures and possums. My wife shrinks at the usage ??

    Are you still using that cold chisel and mash hammer thing out there.

    When I was in the OLD Navy we used a pocket knife and dug in around the perimeter then pop it out.

    Use a soldering gun. High heat and burn deep. Faster than anything else.

    A drop of vinegar and cover with a little square of duct tape. Does the same thing as the aspirin and bandaid.

    Repeated applications of Hydrogen Peroxide will kill them. I've also read that duct taping a small slice of garlic over the wart will kill them, but I haven't tried that one yet.

    Jeff, see if you can find some carbolic salve. I have a homemade concoction I used on one recently. In about a week it was gone, no trace left.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Soaking the foot in 104 degree (fahrenheit) water for 30 minutes works. You need to have a thermometer and hot water to add to keep the temp at 104. If I recall correctly, a virus causes the wart and 104 is the right temp to kill it.
    Got this from a radio show Dr. years ago and tried it. It works.

    Bingo. salycylic acid. Takes forever but is painless and works.

    Time or money or pain, pick one. I'll take time. I have it.
