Warts: The reader who wanted a natural remedy to remove warts from the hand has received plenty of suggestions. Don’t mention the wart? You all have, with advice ranging from the interesting to the bizarre.
First up, someone suggests applying duct tape to the warts, which should be regularly replaced until the warts have disappeared. One gentleman’s wart went after his doctor applied liquid nitrogen. Another suggests the homoeopathic remedy Argent Nit 6C taken three times a day, and apply essential oil of lemon to the wart twice a day. Another option is tincture of blood root, which should be applied to the wart, which should clear it within six weeks. Thuja tincture was mentioned by several readers.
If you’ve got some bananas getting too ripe, rub the inside of the banana skin on the wart before going to bed and repeat until the warts have gone. At least you’ll be a-peeling (sorry).
Try tea tea oil, another reader suggests.
And, finally – leaving the best to last – find someone prepared to buy the warts from you for a pound each. It happened to one reader’s sister-in-law, and the warts mysteriously disappeared within three weeks. Trouble is, she didn’t get her money either.
