    I have never found a natural cure for plantar’s warts. I had one the size of a half-dollar on my foot that I ignored for about 6 years and tried EVERYTHING to make it go away. ..all the OTC meds and every natural substance that was reccommended. It had a life of it’s own.
    I finally found something called Trans-Ver-Sal that removed it and kept it away . Unfortunately, it’s Dr. perscription.

    According to a dermatologist that I recently consulted on this very matter…duct tape! She told me there is even reference to this in some of their literature. You have to keep the wart covered with duct tape for a long time…days to weeks. Apparently this kills the wart by suffocating it.

    Dandelion milk and trans-ver-sal both contain salicylic acid. Dandelion being a very weak form and prescription trans-ver-sal being about 70%.

    Salicylic acid can be gotten from the drug store under many names at about 17%.

    Try the one answerers suggestion of the duct tape first. I understand it works wonders with both fungal and viral wrts.

    Good luck.

    Slightly wet a plain uncoated aspirin and press it against the wart and tape it there. Leave it for a few days or replace it if it falls off. The aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is a chemical cousin to salicylic acid but at full strength.
