Easy Plantar Wart Removal with Duct Tape
Plantar means having to do with the sole of your foot. Plantar warts are warts that form on the bottom of your feet. Here is an easy non-toxic method to rid you of these painful warts.
You will need: Duct tape, Scissors, Latex gloves are preferable, New disposable single blade razor
1: Wash and dry your feet thoroughly
2: Carefully shave the wart down flat, avoiding non-infected tissue. This step should not hurt or draw blood.
3: Cut a small piece of duct tape to the size of the wart. Apply it directly to the wart. Avoid covering a large amount of uninfected tissue. An 1/8th inch past the wart should suffice.
4: Leave the duct tape on for ten days. If the tape comes off within the 10 day period, replace it.
5: On day 10, remove the tape. Wart will appear whitish. Soak your foot in warm water while scrubbing the wart with a pumice rock to remove the dead skin.
6: If the wart is not completely gone at this juncture, repeat steps 1-5 again until wart has been removed.
Tip: Warts are contagious, so it's a good idea to keep your feet covered in public showers, or schools of dance or wherever a large number of people go barefoot.
This method works best if you address the problem while the wart is still small.
