A HomeSpun Cure for Plantars Wart

Posted Feb 02 2009 11:10pm


A plantars wart is a small lesion that forms on the toes or sole of the foot.  Generally, it resembles a cauliflower in appearance with small black dots in it’s center.  Planters warts also make walking uncomfortable and sometimes quite painful. It should also be understood that it is a strain of HPV virus that is usually transmitted through walking on moist surfaces such as showers, swimming pools, or shoes. It is contagious, can survive on moist surfaces for many months without a host, and can be spread to various other parts of the body if left untreated.

A simple but very effective cure consists of painting the wart for with thick red fingernail polish and letting it dry. Cover the entire wart and close surrounding skin with polish so that no air can get to the wart. Since it is a virus, it needs air and moisture to survive. The polish keeps the air and moisture out. Do this for three 3 days. Then peel off the polish. The wart should come off with the polish, and you should be wart free! Now how’s that for a budget friendly cure!
