Duct Tape for Removing Warts

The remedy I’m about to present to you is one of the most effective home remedies for eliminating warts. You should use silver duct tape and this treatment is a result of some preliminary studies.

During a study 61 participants with warts were exposed either to cryotherapy or duct tape treatment. Within 2 months, 85% percents of the participants who used duct tape eliminated their warts, while 60% of the participants who were exposed to crytherapy eliminated their warts.

You should do the following: Apply silver duct tape on the wart for six days. Then soak the wart in water and gently scrub the dead skin with a pumice stone.

Don’t apply the duct tape for 12 hours and then you can iterate the process until the wart is eliminated.

“All you need is patience. This method sometimes lasts for longer” – explains Dr. Juilian Whitaker, director of the Whitaker Wellness Institute.

To Lower your Risk Of Common Warts:

Try to be safe from wart contacts.
Eviscerating may spread the virus. Avoid eviscerating your warts
Never use the same pumice stone or nail clipper on your warts
Never bite your fingernails since the warts appear commonly in skin that has been broken.
Note: Consult with your doctor if your growths are achy or you notice some changes in color and appearance or the warts are spreading or reappear and you aren’t even sure if these growths are warts.
