Fact or Fiction? - "Duct Tape Can Treat Plantar Warts"


A guy had an irritating wart one day on his foot that he could bare no more.  One day, while intoxicated, in a desperate act he
grabbed a piece of duct tape and placed it over the wart.
Going on a drinking binge, the guy forgot about the tape.  Days later he removed it and was surprise to find the wart was almost gone!  Is this Fact or Fiction?  Can duct tape really remove warts?

Duct tape really can remove warts!  The tape irritates the wart and the surrounding skin, thereby causing your immune system to attack it!
  • Basically, you cover the wart with duct tape and leave on for six days.
  • Then remove the tape, soak your foot in warm water and rub with an emery board or pumice stone to remove the crusty, whitish areas you'll begin to see after about six weeks.
  • Repeat this procedure for about 6 to 8 weeks and the wart will be gone!
