Bazooka and a nail file then when it goes black dog it out with an old pair of tweezers. I got rid of ds's within 2 weeks when he had 12 of the buggers!

Go and see a chiropodist, mine use an acid (mild) and it got rid of it. Was painful but it was a big horrible one .
Also a sandy beach and walking on it will help

Freezing spray from Superdrug worked for us once.

Dd had one previously & she had it for over a year & it only went when she caught chicken pox & her immune system kicked in & it went black & just fell off.

I've heard it's worth filling up with vitamins to give your body more help in getting rid of it.

I got rid of one on my own foot by cutting it out with nail clippers, had to go quite deep, it hurt & bled a lot but worked.

I had a verruca for years I tried everything to get rid
Of it. I had a course of Augmentiin ( I think that’s how you spell it) antibiotics for something else
and my verruca literally disappeared no mark where it was and it never came back.

Years ago my son had a verruca and for months I tried all the many weird things that you hear recommended, none of which worked. It spread and my poor boy ended up with more than 20 of the things on his foot and had to have them frozen off in three sessions which he found quite painful and traumatic but no problems since then.

Then about six months ago my daughter got a verruca and I thought we were going to have to go through the whole thing again. Until a friend of mine who is big into her essential oils told me that pure oregano essential oil is really good against verrucas. I was very sceptical but she gave me some so I tried it. I applied it every morning and evening for about 3 weeks and it was gone. I was actually amazed by how easy it was. If you look online, you’ll see it isn’t exactly cheap but it works out at a fraction of the price that I spent on trying to get rid of my son’s verrucas over the months and the freeze treatment and honestly, I was amazed by how well it worked. For about two weeks I thought nothing was happening, then all of a sudden it started shrinking in size and then it was gone.
