How to cure a plantar wart naturally

 

Do a quick Google search and you will find unlimited advice on home remedies for plantar warts.

The tips range from applying fresh garlic, to mixing a poultice of crushed up aspirin.

And then there’s the classic: cover it with duct tape.

How do I know this? Because a few months ago I had a bad mommy moment. I realized that the teeny, tiny plantar wart on my five year old daughter’s foot had somehow grown into a painful, throbbing mass…

Did you know:ย that in cultures where people regularly go barefoot, plantar warts are virtually unheard of? It is thought that walking barefoot toughens the skin and keeps it dry, while the friction of walking actually wears the virus off!
A plantar wart is actually a skin lesion caused by the human papilloma virus. Although some people have them for years and never experience any discomfort, in others, like my five year old daughter, the wart forms a callous and becomes tender and painful.

In fact, in my daughter’s case, it had become so painful that it was making her cry at night. *cringe*.

It. Was. Serious.

Still, rather than rush to the doctor, we opted to look for a natural remedy.

We looked at things like:

  • A raw garlic application: Rejected. We love garlic around here. Seriously. Big fans. But a friend advised against this after suffering a skin burn/severe irritation when they kept garlic on their skin too long. And my daughter just wasn’t going for it.
  • Crushed aspirin poultice: Rejected. I didn’t want to apply aspirin (known to cause Reye’s syndrome in children) to my daughter’s skin.
  • Apple cider vinegar foot bath Tried. Major effort (you try get a five year old to sit still for 15 minutes twice a day) and no visible results after 2 weeks…

The remedy that did work is so easy, anyone can do it.

It was shared by another momma.

And since it has now been used successfully on at least three children, I figure we’ve pretty much done clinical trials.

 

Here it is:

Apply a couple of drops of undiluted essential oil of lemon directly to the plantar wart in the morning and evening.

 

That’s it. Seriously. Even if you forget and just do it once a day, it will still work.

I know, right? Perfect for mommas and kids who have got alot on the go…

LEMON

My observations: the essential oil began to attack and ‘eat’ the root of the plantar wart (almost immediately). It created a bit of a hole (that my daughter didn’t complain about at all) until it reached, exposed, and killed the black roots of the plantar wart.

Here’s another amazing part: The skin around the wart stayed completely intact and healthy.

Within 2-3 weeks, the wart was completely gone. Without a trip to the doctor to ‘burn’ it off with liquid nitrogen (ouch!).

Without using any yucky medicated bandaids.

That’s what I call easy peasy lemon squeezy!ย

        Did the warts just simply go away? Or did you have to do anything with them like dig them out?

    Hi

    Thank you for this!!! I’ve been trying different home remedies and my sons warts are slowly going away, but after 3 weeks of doing the home remedies, they are nowhere near gone. I will try the lemon essential oil. After applying the oil, did you cover the spots with band aid? Or did you just leave the warts exposed? Thank you.

      Just used lemon oil to get rid of my son’s plantar wart. I applied it to a small piece of gauze and wrapped bandage tape around it to hold it in place. I reapplied two times over a week and last night the whole wart came right off. With no discomfort for my son!

    I’ve never had a wart until this one.. a plantar wart on the ball of my foot! I’ve been to the doctor and had it cut out and then frozen but of course it came back. I would like to try the essential oil but was wondering if you left the wart exposed or if you covered it after applying the lemon essential oil? Thanks!

    According to this article, you do cover the area with a bandaid (what Brits call a plaster) after application of the oil(s) (the article gives a list of essential oils that work, including tea tree and thyme as well as lemon). http://aromamuse.com/2010/08/16/how-to-annihilate-a-plantar-wart/

    I’ve tried everything, consistently for two years to get rid of them. Over this last summer I had forgotten about treatment and decided to just live with the darn things. But weirdly enough, I got out of the shower a few days ago and realized one of my 15+ warts on my foot had turned white. I grabbed onto it and it just came right off (normal skin underneath). I thought it was a fluke, but realized over the next couple weeks that the same thing was happening to all of them, even two common warts that were on my thumb. I guess over time, even if no treatments work, your body will eventually fix the problem too hopefully. I’m completely wart free now ๐Ÿ˜€

      We’re talking plantars warts here they don’t just fall off. And they are very painful to walk on. So waiting a long time for it to fall off is not an appropriate answer. By the way sounds like you really need help with having so many. Sometimes ppl can’t wait and wait until they fall off.

    These threads have been a good source of information. Its good to see there are so many options for natural and homemade recipes. Thanks. I tried the essential oils mentioned on this site and a few others, and they worked very well. I discovered premixed oils, wart-thwart.com, so you don’t have to buy all the oils individually and mix yourself, which was a bit expensive. My daughter is 8 and her hand warts completely went away in about 10 days. Hope this helps.

    I was skeptical but eventually became desperate enough to give it a try, after exhausting all other options I could think of and researched. The extract from this amazing and readily available herb works amazingly against all infections and viruses, and heals the skin very quickly. I struggled against a plantar wart for half a year, trying various remedies. It grew to the size of a thumb and I could barely walk. This oil ate it up in ten days flat. A friend tried it and said it cured his athletes foot within three days. It can cure cancer and seemingly any ailment. Word needs to get out about this.

    Thank you for this post. I just got a plantar wart with two tiny nodules nearby that I suspect were warts in the making overnight two days ago. I saw your post and decided to try this instead of going to the doc for the “nuclear option” the day they popped up. I put lemon oil on them that night and put a couple of bandaids over the wart and nodules soaked with lemon oil, then again the following morning. When I took the bandaids off the next night (24 hours after the first application), the wart was starting to turn black and the nodules had shrunk! I’m now at less than 48 hours after the first application and the wart is fully black and starting to dry out a bit and I can barely feel the nodules. THANK YOU for posting this!!!!

    Hey! I was able to get rid of a big plantar wart that I struggled with for over 2 years by using a few primary methods. 1. duct tape 24/7 for about 3 weeks straight or so. 2. Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) soaks every day and 3. regular salicylic acid pads (which didn’t work for me until I started using the other 2 methods along with it). It’s not completely gone! I have before and after photos on the blog I made about the journey if you would like to check it out! Anyway, just thought I’d share as I know how annoying these things can be.

    P.S. I tried a lot of other things that helped as well. One was oregano oil.

    Hi there, I’m going to try this. I started to get a little pinpoint plantar wart a while back and ignored it (gahhh!) and now it’s gotten a bit bigger and to the point where it’s uncomfortable walking in certain shoes. So, I bought the oil, and have tried a couple times to put it on with a q-tip – letting the tip get soaked and then touching it to the spot, but I can’t tell if any is transferring onto my skin. I tried pouring one little drop – lol, that worked well ๐Ÿ™‚ (it went everywhere, though I was able to concentrate and rub a fair amount of it into the right spot). So just wondering – how exactly are you applying it? Q-tip? Perhaps a better pouring technique than I employed? Maybe I just need practice? Thanks!

    I used pure tea trea oil and that did the trick. I applied it on a band aid twice a day. Also I used an anti fungal soap with tea tree oil and other essential oils. I think the time that it takes to get rid of these things depends on your immune system. This is a form of HPV so you need to understand it’s a viral thing. However it occurs when the pathogens in your body are hard at work. This is something that can always come back so dont forget to change your socks and wash your feet, and eat healthy of course. I haven’t tried this method but my suspicion is that the acidity of the lemon will do a nice job fighting the wart. Hope everyone gets healthy and wealthy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have been using the lemon oil on my 6 year old son for about 3 weeks now. I have not seen much change. Is there anything else I can give him to maybe help boost this along? His hands are covered in WARTS…on our last trip to the dermatologist, they counted over 30 warts on his hands.

    1. Adrienne

      Oh that’s tough isn’t it? I did see change happening fairly quickly so perhaps this isn’t the remedy for you. I would definitely say do whatever you can to boost your little one’s immunity- i.e cod liver oil and probiotics. Also consider seeing a homeopath if you can because they can be of great assistance in a situation like this! Hope that helps!

      Essential oils work differently on your individual body chemistry so Lemon may work for someone else and not for you. I have had several warts and I have found that they all responded to different oils. I have used Tea Tree, Cypress, Thuja, Cinnamon, and Oregano all to have been effective. Though be very careful not to use Cinnamon or Oregano on children and make sure you dilute them with a carrier oil before using them on an adult. They are hot oils and can be very uncomfortable on sensitive skin. I have also have success with Apple Cider Vinegar but it makes the warts quickly ugly and it smells so avoid using it on your hands if you can help it!

    I have had a planters wart on the inside of my toe for years, It doesn’t usually bother me unless i ware dress shoes with heels, Lucky I wear tennis shoes to work. I found myself out shopping yesterday in dress shoes, it was hurting so bad I actually took my shoes off while shopping on the carpeted area of Target. I found a Vitamin World, went in a bought a bottle of Aura Cacia lemon oil, when back out the car, took my shoe off and dabbed the oil on the wart. I put my shoe back on and shopped for a couple more hours pain free! I couldn’t believe how quickly it worked at taking the pain away. I plan to continue treatment but at this point I don’t care if the wart stays or goes if all I have to do is dab it with lemon oil to be able to wear heels again!

    I had a planter wart on the ball of my foot. I got it burned off by my dermatologist, but it of course came back! It grew steadily to about a dime size and was so painful I could hardly walk and much less do well with sports(how embarrassing!) so I had to do something! I put lemon on it morning and night and trimmed off as much wart as possible with fingernail trimmers. Some days, I would put the lemon on a bandaid and keep it on for the day when the right shoes would permit. Eventually after about 2-3 weeks, the blood vessels turned black while the rest turned brown. I took the dirt remover on the fingernail trimmer and peeled the wart back. Half the wart came off, and the rest came without much bleeding a few days after. This process was painless and so far my wart has not come back! Thanks for your info!

    I really hope this works, I’ve been living with one for months and I’ve had to change my foot posture to avoid walking directly on the sole of my foot, because of the excruciating pain. My mom doesn’t believe in natural remedies but I’m trying to convince her to just try it and find some because in terrified at the idea of freezing it off, had to do that once for something else and it was horrendous. And knowing that it could grow back even after that… So I’m really praying for this, I hope to prove to her that natural remedies aren’t a scam and I’m just hoping for it all to be over, I’m so tired of dealing with this.
    What troubles me is that I did research and it seems it’s caused by HPV? Isn’t that like a serious disease? And also that warts are supposed to be contagious, because I’ve definitely touched it.

    I’m 22 few week ago I felt some pains and I went to the hospital my doc told me I had hpv about 1 yr and I need to start the treatment early, he gave me some medicine to be taking and I told him no I’ll not, because I hated taking medicine when I won’t not see cure for the purpose. After I got home I started getting worried searching for strong advice and I found valid natural treatment online lot people says they got hpv cure from Dr galiga and I email Dr @ drgaligaherbalcenter@gmail.com 3 days passed, I purchase his cure online some weeks after the process taking his treatment i got cured. I went for checkup twice after taking the natural treatment from the herbalist called Dr galiga and i tested negative.

    I tried this and it worked!!!

    I am very excited that i found this and because it worked I had to leave a comment.

    I had searched for a long time to find something that worked. I had tried all sorts of things and even talked to my ND. I knew from past experience that over-the-counter medication didn’t work and I didn’t want to go to the doctor and have it frozen off (that had worked for me when I was a kid). I had the plantars wart on my foot for almost three years! I have gone through multiple pregnancies while having the plantars wart on my foot, all while having severely bad varicose veins. I said that is enough! I am not dealing with varicose veins and a plantars wart on my foot during this pregnancy. Thank God for healing my foot by leading me to this post! Thank you for sharing what worked on your daughter!

    What I did: I purchased Aura Cacia Organic Lemon Oil from Natural Grocers. I believe it was about $10 for .25fl/oz. Each morning I put a couple of drops of lemon oil (straight, undiluated) right on my plantars wart. I dried up the excess oil around the edges of the wart with a tissue and then placed duct tape over the wart.

    I don’t remember how long it took to work, probably a couple of months. I kept doing this process because almost right away I started seeing a change in my wart. Each day I removed the duct tape, chunks of dead skin would come off. I took this as a good sign because then the lemon oil would get deeper into my foot (and therefore into the wart).

    I am happy to say today that the wart is gone and my foot looks and feels better! No more pain!

    I was desperate to find out how to rid planters warts on my kids feet and I finally came across this blog. It worked like a charm! I wasn’t even consistent and I covered them at might with a bandaid, when I remembered. Some comments are getting other warts. Here is one way to tell. Squeeze the side of wart (like a pinch), a planters warts will hurt, but if you push directly on top of the wart it will not.

    So glad to read about this, my teenage daughter went to a camp in the mountains in France and came back 14 days later with what seemed to be a callous or corn after borrowing someone’s hiking boots and walking 21 kilometers every other day. We thought nothing of it and she didn’t mention it again for several weeks, I even got her corn pads from the pharmacy.

    One day she said: “I think my corn is growing or infected”, we looked at it and it was larger. We went to the Dr. and she said it was a wart (plantar wart) that probably got infected.

    I so wish we had treated it at the beginning but we had never had this. None of us have any warts at home, so we didn’t know. I use DoTerra oils already and I thought Oregano was the one to use, we used it for a few days and saw no change, but we started the lemon oil 48 hours ago and she can already see a little improvement. She says that she can see a hole in the middle forming, like the lemon is digging into the roots. We are doing it once at night and once in the morning and covering it with duct tape, because we noticed if we don’t cover it properly and it breathes, it spreads/grows (on her, at least). We will report back in a week or two with progress.

    Thanks for the help!

      Great! How did it go? The exact same process happened with our daughter (it seemed to get at the roots). You def have to stick with it but it worked for us!
