It will not go away!!!! can anyone tell me how to get rid of it (getting it cut out is not an option!!! afraid of the pain!!!)??? I got it checked out and my doctor said that it is a planters wart that is under the skin, under the nerves. It used to hurt so bad that I started walking on the side of my foot but now I walk normally. any home remedies or something to help me get rid of the wart are welcome, there are no stupid answers here!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
Hot water soaks (113° water for 30 to 45 minutes 2 to 3 times a week for 6 to 8 weeks) may cure a plantar wart.
Topical applications are most effective for treating warts. Stop any topical application if irritation should develop in the surrounding skin. For plantar flat and common warts use the following applications.
* Banana peel patch. Cut a piece of banana peel and place it over the wart before going to bed. Tape in place.
* Raw garlic patch. Cover the wart and surrounding skin with a thin layer of castor oil or olive oil. Apply a thin slice of fresh garlic and tape in place.
To maximize benefit place two to four drops of tincture of thuja or greater celandine (Chelidonium majus) on the wart before covering with peel or garlic. This application may need to be repeated nightly for up to three weeks. The wart will turn black as it begins to die.
In homeopathy there are innorous medicines. It is only homeopathy that surely cures warts hundred percent. Medicines commonly used are thuja, causticum, calc carb, kali carb, dulcamara, ferr pic, antim crud, staphysagaria etc.
Homeopathic remedy - Thuja Occidentalis 30: Helps to alleviate common warts, which are easily recognized by the rough 'califlower-like' appearance of the surface. Take 3 tablets 1-3 times per day. Allow to dissolve under tongue. Stop when symptoms are relieved.
Homeopathy is a natural remedy for warts. Nitricum acidum and Thuja are both effective homeopathic remedies.
Causticum 30 and Nitric acid 30 on waking, each remedy on alternate days.
Antimonium crudum 30 and Berberis 30, each remedy on alternate days.
I suggest that remedies be used as follows: Take 2-3 drops of selected remedy in ¼ th glass of water, preferably empty stomached, 3 doses 8 hourly for 3-4 weeks. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient.
If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.
