  • I did. It can work when you catch it right away, but you will likely need the OTC wart remover.

  • Damn. I'm SOL, then. I did the Freeze Away and it failed. Now I'm trying duck tape. Last resort, really. I've had them too long and new ones keep popping up. My hand looks awful, I feel so gross!

  • You can also go to the derm. They can freeze them off for good, really fast!

  • Maybe I should try that if these 6 days don't work. Doc told me to do 6, then off 2 days, 6 again if needed. Thank you!

  • yep my dad who is a er doc says is a home remedy that works. I have seen it work on two people before. i have also had the seen people getting theres frozen and cut out which was not pleasant to watch. you can get over the counter freezing stick for warts or just the regular medicaided drops with the wart bandaids if you don't want to go throught the cutting as well. the drops take a little longer for effect but they work.

  • I've heard that banana peels help to get rid of warts, too. The potassium in the peel is what helps.
