What are some home remedies for wart removal?

My son gets a lot of warts and it is too expensive to go to the doctor every time.

There are many freeze away type over the counter wart removal kits that work well. Placing duct tape over the wart for several days to deprive it if oxygen, or covering it in a vinegar soaked cotton ball for several day to do the same thing also works.

There are many claims out there, but I've had much success with a potato! Take a small potato and cut it in half. Cut a small hole in the middle a bit smaller than the wart. Apply the potato to the wart, turning the potato over the wart. Try for 15 minutes twice daily for two weeks to see results.

Put duct tape over the wart for a few days, usually within 3-7 days the wart will die from lack of oxygen. Apple-cider-vinegar can also work, I put it on a bit of cotton-swab then put it on the wart, covered it with a band-aid and slept with it on for 4 days and the wart fell off.

AVC seems to be a good home remedy for warts. AVC stands for the apple cider vinegar, vaseline and cotton balls that can be taped to a wart overnight.

The 1001 use for duct tape is warts. Cover a wart with a strip of duct tape and leave it on until it begins to fall off on its own. Replace with a new piece when neccesary. The duct tape softens the skin and the warts (including plantars)come off painlessly with the tape when they are ready.

I had heard that covering a wart with a strip of duct tape would make a wart disappear. A small strip of duct tape covered the wart for about a week. When removed, the wart was gone. That was about five years ago and it never came back.

You can always try that compound w stuff. I seem to remember it working well when I was a child. You can also try freezing them off. I do not know how well freezing them off will work, but it is worth a shot.
