There are natural remedies for plantar warts – remedies which are safe, cheap and highly effective!
Today there is more and more interest in home for plantar wart removal (warts on the soles of the feet and toes) because of the HPV virus that causes these is so prevalent and contagious, and because the treatments administered by doctors only work about 50% of the time.
Why spend big money, endure pain, and risk scarring and other side effects on treatments that even authorities such as the Mayo Clinic and Consumer Reports dismiss as no better -and in some cases worse – than safe, natural remedies like the those proven by Dr Charles Davidson:

Plantar wart remedies rated by Mayo Clinic & Consumer Reports
The at home treatments that have been rated by the Mayo Clinic and Consumer Reports are:
1. Salicylic acid – you can buy acid treatments from a drug store without a prescription. This is successful about 75% of the time but is slow and can take up to 12 weeks of daily treatment. Other disadvantages are pain and skin irritation.
2. Home cryotherapy (“wart freeze”) kits – these can also be purchased at a drugstore with no prescription. Even when the stronger version is administered by a doctor, this is a remedy that often fails to work. With the at-home DIY kits, some studies have shown this to be no more effective than a “dummy” treatment. This is the worst performing of the natural remedies for plantar warts examined by both organizations.
3. Duct tape – Many people are surprised to learn that both the Mayo Clinic and Consumer Reports rate duct tape highly as a wart treatment. According to Consumer Reports it is likely to be beneficial and works for 80% of people. The Mayo Clinic cite research proving that it works better than professional medical cryotherapy.
Two “natural” remedies for plantar warts that the Mayo Clinic do not bother to discuss and that Consymer Reports dismiss as unlikely to be of any any benefit and currently lacking supporting evidence are homeopathy and hypnosis.
Warts on feet
Our preferred technique? The number one recommendation we give is to follow the method set out by Dr Charles Davidson (see link above or below) in Chapter 3 of his book. If you want a faster result use duct tape instead of a bandaid.
Warts on feet are plantar warts.
Nearly 1 in 10 Americans are afflicted with these, usually because they have caught HPV in a public swimming pool, change room, or similar facility.
The pressure caused by the weight of the body when walking on feet or toes can make plantar warts very painful – usually the main reason people seek treatment. However there are two other other compelling reasons for curing warts on feet:
1. They are unattractive and undermine confidence and self-esteem.
2. They are very infectious. Neglecting to treat warts on feet almost certainly means somebody else will also end up suffering the same problem.
The most cost effective solution is try a safe and natural home remedy with a proven track record of success. Safely treat plantar warts at home.
