Multiple finger warts -duct tape method?

God knows why in middle age I now find myself plagued by warts when I've never had them before. Didn't even realise that's what they were at first as they're not what I thought a typical wart looks like. Mine are quite flat and big, almost just like rough, white skin which takes up a fair bit of my finger.

I have three on different fingers.

Anyway I've read that duct tape is best but I can't have duct tape over my fingers when I'm at work (3 days a week). If I have the tape on the rest of the time will it still work or does it need to be constant?

Or any other methods?

Chelidonium from a chemist really helped my kids with this. You have to gently file them down and then apply. The stuff is made by Vogel and some chemists stock it. It's a plant extract. Recommended by my GP and worked well. Good luck!

I had one on my lip (gross I know) and tea tree oil worked for me! I dabbed neat tea tree oil on it 3-4 times a day and it shrunk and eventually disappeared with no scarring

The best ever thing for warts is a prescribed gel which has acid in. Clears them up quickly and my daughter hasn't suffered with them since.
