I've had it years. I've tried wartner numerous times now and it did nothing. Also one which was supposed to freeze it off, a layer came off but that was it. I've tried duct tape and banana skin. I've tried filing it down. It is still there. It is on my finger and my hands are on show a lot. I hate it!

I have got a layer of nail polish on it now to starve it of oxygen.

Any other recommendations?

We've found liquid nitrogen to be pretty unhelpful been treated several times and no change.

I don't understand this thread at all. Why haven't any of you got them done with liquid nitrogen? Surely that's a standard treatment?

Tea tree oil or Tamanu oil (Vanuatu tea tree) consistently works for skin tags and warts in our family.

My mum used to buy them too. Give her a silver coin, she would rub it and it would be gone within days...

I asked this question on here a few years ago for my sons verucca.
I took the advice given and painted it with black nail polish, kept it covered with the nail polish and then one day it just fell off.

I was amazed. We had tried pretty much everything before this.

Can't remember how long it took now, maybe a couple of weeks, but it really did work. You need to keep it covered though, I think I painted it every other night

Warts do disappear on their own when your lazy arse body gets round to making anti bodies. You obviously credit the last thing you tried. I burnt one of my finger with liquid nitrogen, I worked in a lab, but God did it hurt! I think you've really got to go for it though, no little spray. things

Cut a small potato in half and rub the cut half over the wart. Bury the used half of potato in earth - if you haven't got a garden a pot will do, or anywhere you can discreetly dig a little hole to bury it.

By the time the used half of the potato rots down, the wart will be gone.

My big toe was covered in them as a child and I had a few on my finger. I had them for years nothing worked. I swam like a fish too. Someone told me to dog them with a needle until they bleed and then put methylated spirits on them. Burnt like hell but worked and 24 years later no warts!

My friends son aged 6 was having them burnt off. Very painful.
I gave him homeopathic Thuja..they went and never came back again.
Course we all know homeopathy doesnt work.

Just updating to say I managed to get rid of it with some Pickles Callous Ointment.

I put a tiny dot on and covered it with a plaster for about three nights and that did it!

I swear by vitamin C! I had lots of little warts on my fingers that looked unsightly. By chance I started eating two satsumas everyday without fail, just to try and avoid getting too many colds.
Then, after a few weeks I looked down and 99% of my warts had disappeared. If you Google it, there is some research out there that suggests Vit c can help.
So I swear by Vitamin C, and as well as getting rid of my warts, I've certainly had fewer colds too!

DH had lots of warts as a child; he went sea swimming and they all disappeared never to return.
Similarly I had a few on my fingers, went swimming in the local pool, when I got out of the water they had all gone.

I tried everything on this thread. Even repeated freeze treatments (I’d overdo it and give myself frost bite) didn’t work. Filing them down and painting stuff on was ok, but one day I took a pair of nail clippers to them (bunch of them on my hands, a couple huge) and snipped away at them until they were bleeding and practically gone.
They healed up and disappeared forever!

I've had one wart on my finger for 12 years. I have tried tea tree oil and everything else on the market.
I file it down if it gets really big, I think I have it for life.

Stick with the nail varnish. Got rid of my DC's verrucas in about 3 weeks after nothing else worked. I just painted it on every night after trimming off the dead bits and old varnish.

When I was in my 20's I had warts all over my hands, mainly around the fingernail area with one huge one at the top of my middle finger, I started (for some reason!) dabbing them with nail varnish remover and they were all gone within a week! Don't ask me how it worked but they never ever came back and I'm in my 50's now!

@TheLightSideOfTheMoon Next door's cat keeps shitting in my garden, two birds, one stone.

Tea tree oil.

I had one aswell and I put a load of it on a cotton pad over the wart area with tape and over a couple of uses, it was flat!

My MiL says to bury a dead cat under a full moon.

But try the other poster's suggestions first.

When I was a kid I had one on my thumb and I bit it off 🤦‍♀️ Probably not a great idea but it’s never come back!

Thanks everybody!
I'll try the olive / tea tree oil a go first as I havd them in the house and then salactol!

My youngest DD had lots of warts on her hands and we had tried everything until someone suggested SALACTOL. We used it and treated 5-6 of the biggest ones on her hands and they seemed to be going - one day we went surfing and literally it’s like they disappeared that day. Most odd and no signs of a wart since 10 years later
