  • I have read that a small piece of duct tape will cause it to fall off.

  • Duct tape does work! It takes a while though. Otherwise, use the OTC liquid.

  • I would look at the liquid and see what it says, but I am curious as to why the freeze off says not to use while nursing. It freezes and kills the skin around the wart so it doesn't put any meds in your blood stream. I would talk with your doc or try the liquid or duct tape. Oh I almost forgot. My GMIL told me to put a cotton ball soaked in breastmilk on my DHs wart and change it every 4 hours or so and then leave it to air over night. It took about 4 weeks, but it worked.

  • Cut a piece of duct tape the size of the wart. Keep on it about 1 week. It will suffocate the wart.

  • I went to the Dr for a wart one time and he told me to put duct tape on it... It totally worked, the wart never came back :)
