Natural Wart Removal

Sometimes, old remedies passed down by your elders really do work the best.

Sometimes….

My daughter recently found an old (and non-toxic) solution to getting rid of warts (which I will link below.) And it reminded me of a piece of advice my dad always gave me when I was little. He would tell me to “take a dirty dishrag, and rub it on the wart. Then bury the dishrag in the backyard.” If you follow these directions exactly, the wart will fall right off!

I was never quite sure if he was joking or not….. 😉

A few of my other favorite olden time remedies (that were actually published in books!) are…

 

Rub the wart with a piece of bacon that has been stolen from a neighbor.

 

Catch a frog and rub him on the wart

 

Walk out into the road after dark when you can see the moon. Run around three times and spit over your right shoulder.

 

Take a tick from a dog and let the tick bite the wart. In two or three days the wart should be gone. Then put the tick back on the dog.

 

Put butter on your wart and have a cat lick it

 

Apply chalk to warts; with same piece of chalk mark X over the oven door for each wart. As the chalk burns off, the warts will disappear.

 

When you go to church, make the sign of the cross over your warts three times.

 

I wouldn’t advise you to do any of these. But I do have one tried and tested method I can share with you to help you get rid of your warts. You can find it on my daughter Allison’s new blog, called Dear Stranger! All you need is some cotton balls, band-aids, and one ingredient you might already have in your kitchen!

 

If this method works for you, I would love to hear about it! I would also love to hear any other interesting olden time remedies you have heard of (or tried!)

Difference in photos apart from the wart. Doesn’t look like same hand. Photo shopped?

Definitely not Photoshopped. I’m the guy she got engaged to and that wart is nowhere to be seen! It’s really quite remarkable how little of a trace is left.

The color saturation in the picture is different but the anatomy of both hands are the exact same. It’s ok to be skeptical but at least be a good a detective 🙂

I’ve had a wart on my finger for over two years. Freezing it off hasn’t worked and neither have natural remedies to this point. I am certainly going to try your method! It may take longer to work as I’ve had this
wart a long time. 🙂

Day 2 for me, inside is turning black but when I use the bandaids with the cotton ball of apple cider vinegar I feel it burning through my skin. Maybe people respond differently, I can handle pain and 3 years with this wart and this is the only thing that’s working so far. I’ve tried freezing and doctors have tried their methods. Wish I would of known sooner but like I said, this is working when the doctors tried everything and nothing has worked. Idk if it’s normal to have pain but I’d rather have 7 days of pain than… Read more »

I started this last night…. I have the same wart but on top of my foot and it’s been around since this past summer. Its SO annoying. I have tried to freeze it off, the stick (wax) and my doctor suggested putting Vitamin A on it. I really hope this method works!

Update: It finally flaked off completely and now its gone, just debating on how to treat the post wart wound ! I think I am going to attempt to put Bacitracin Zinc ointment to stop the bleeding… I just hope the wart doesn’t regrow again.

So you leave it on all night while you sleep?

My daughter has a small wart on her knee that won’t go away. I started this tonight and hope it works. When you say to put coconut oil on the area do you mean over the wart as well or just the surrounding area? I just applied it around the area since I figured the vinegar would not absorb into her wart.

What if the wart turns black and then it doesn’t flake off?

Is it suppose to sting?

I started this procedure on Monday and followed your directions…I do admit, I skipped the coconut oil the first night and can relate to how the vinegar can irritate the skin. It’s Wednesday and its now turning black and the skin on top is hard…like a scab and for some reason it was more painful too…But don’t care…that darn wart is on my left hand ring finger…I’m so embarrassed about it. ! thanks for posting this!

Hi, I’ve been trying this on my son now for 5 days now, and he says it’s hurting him. Is it normal?? I see that the wart is kind of drying off. It is not turning black though. I think it might take more than just 7 days.

Seriously worked so well, I tried so many things and this was the only one that worked. I wish I took before and after pictures!

We did this for my son’s warts and also his molluscum, which runs in the same wart family. Works like a charm. We did notice with each wart, it looked like it was “growing.” After more research, we found that this was normal as the root of the wart was being pushed up out of the skin. Don’t be alarmed if this happens to you. It means the ACV is working and it’s getting closer to falling out.

My wart is like super small and didn’t look as puffy as yours in the picture. I’m on day 2 and so far when I’ve taken off the band aid in the morning it looks bigger then it is. Now mid afternoon it shrunk back to its normal size. Maybe I need to do more oil and less vinegar. My skin around the wart is super dry.

Do you know if it is safe on skin as delicate as the face? My 7 year old has one on her upper cheek. She is extremely sad about it.
