Verrucas - Warts
A big verrucas on my kids foot had been there about 8 months; Freezing hadn't worked; The gels hadn't worked. I saw a site that mentioned using vinegar on it so I tried.
Soak a small piece of cotton wool in white vinegar, place on the verrucas and cover with a waterproof plaster. We did this for 2 days, on the second day the verrucas had turned black.
I was able to remove all the black of this large deep verrucas with no pain or discomfort to my kid (which shocked me as it was quite deep)
Thank you anonymous.
For those of you that don't know, a verrucas is a type of wart that usually develops on the soles of your feet.
Don't worry; I had to look it up as well. I then edited the title to include this more familiar name.
I have had experience getting rid of verrucas / warts on my children's feet and generally they are harmless although they often take a long time to go away if left alone. I have heard that they may even take a couple years for the virus to leave your system and the wart to disappear.
Most people do not want to put up with warts for two years and thanks to vinegar, we don't have to.
My anonymous reader posted the above comment providing a very effective remedy using white vinegar from your kitchen cabinet.
S/he mentions using waterproof plaster to cover the vinegar soaked cotton. I have also used duct tape very effectively but recently it was suggested to me that "sock tape" used by hockey players is even more useful.
In any case the vinegar soaked bandage is very effective as my reader discovered so next time you get a wart, give this vinegar home remedy a try. I am sure you will be very pleased with your results.
Thanks for your advice/submission.
