Duck tape cures warts
« on: Nov 26, 13, 11:31 PM »
I have (had) a very large subcutaneous wart on my left hip. Have had it for along time. Recently it became itchy and was bleeding because it caught my trouser belt often.

Many visits to GP who told me to ignore it but last visit decided it should be looked at by another GP.

He decided I should have it removed. Got an appointment for 21 days hence.

Meanwhile I came across some info that covering it with Duck tape would help.

I duly tried this. Lo & behold when I got to my appointment the GP agreed I no longer needed any surgical action.

Wart has greatly diminished.

Will keep on using until it hopefully disappears.

One further tip from me. If you suffer from cold sores, the minute you get the tingle, rub some surgical spirit on it with a cotton bud. I have done this for many years and it works. No scab!
It's coz I am thick.

Julie had had a large wart on her toe for a long time, we thought that it was a corn. Doctor did give it a couple of squirts with liquid nitrogen to no effect but was told to apply duct tape, which she continued with coupled with emerying it, until it disappeared.

We used it to clean the surplus ink in the tray of our printer, it did a great job,  :yup:
