Should You Use Duct Tape to Cure Warts?
People commonly turn to cryotherapy to treat warts, but freezing with liquid nitrogen can be both painful and expensive. Ironically, studies show that duct tape sometimes works better than professional wart treatments. Whether it’s the deprival of oxygen, the removal of infected tissue or the stimulation, duck tape is an at-home wart treatment that really works.*
Apply a piece of silver duct tape the size of the wart (and reapply whenever it falls off). After six days, pull off the tape, wash the area with soap and water and file down dead skin with an emery board. Leave tape off overnight and repeat this process until the wart is gone, usually within one month.
