My son battled warts for over a year while in middle school. I cant tell you how hard that was on him as children can be so cruel! I went to the Dr's office for months and spent plenty of $ between that and over the counter wart freeze etc....Then I found distilled white vinegar. That's right.....plain ol vinegar! I cut cosmetic pads in very small pieces (just enough to cover the wart) and put the pieces in a small Tupperware container and filled with vinegar. Apply after shower every nite and cover with a band aid or tape. remove in the morning and wash hands. I SWEAR BY IT!!!!! It DOES work with in two weeks the warts turned very black and hard. They eventually fell off leaving a raw area I treated with anti biotic cream without covering!!!! tried and true!
