  • I had one on my ring finger a few years ago and put clear nail polish over it and then a band aid to cover it. The nail polish suffocates it and dries it out. After a while, as gross as it sounds, you can actually just peel it off. It doesnt hurt but can take a couple of weeks. Or you can go to the dr and have it frozen off.

  • You can buy freeze-off stuff at the drug store now. DH uses duct tape. You have to get the original. The other kinds don't work. No white tape or blue tape or off brand. Duck brand duct tape.
