    Default wart home remedy needed

    Hi. I put on flies with great carelessness. Ive got quite few warts. Im pretty sure the cause is from the hooks. a few weeks ago i was showing my girlfriend how the hooks dont hurt. i proceeded to stick my self with a hook. now i have 3 tiny new I have 9 of them. some from many years back. i dont have medical insurance so doctor is out of the question. some are big and im tired of staring at them. any kind of advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Wrap them in duct tape. Not only does it make you look cool, but it also suffocates the warts which will kill them in time. Cutting them off with your pocket knife does not work, believe me I've tried. If you really want to splurge buy the Dr. Shoal's wart remover kit from wallyworld for about $20. It freezes them off in a couple weeks.

    i used to have them growning up i used to get matches and dip the head of the match in water then rub it on the wart after a week or to they would be gone (a old wives tale i tried and worked for me )

    as a kid, my mom would have us put a copper penny in some vinegar, put it in the window sill until it turned green, and then rub the green stuff on the wart, that used to take them off - another wives tail that worked.

    I am not sure if you can do this without a Doctor down there or not. Canada is a bit itchy on what we need Doc.'s for.
    my daughter had issues with warts and they finally put her on large doses of vitamin "A" and they died.
    The other thing is Compound W actually works and you can buy it off the shelf for under $10.
    The other thing they have out for under $20 up here is that stuff that freezes them, it works fairly quickly.
    I know these are not home remedies but they may be more affordable than seeing a Doctor.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    As with most things in life, you just need to ask yourself "What would McGuyver do?" Anyone know where I could get a WWMD wristband?
