Has anyone tried the banana skin thing on their verrucas? I used to get verrucas all the time as a kid but they would just disappear quickly. I also got a lot of warts of my fingers and knees and these disappeared with wart varnish stuff. However, as an adult, I have a very weak immune system which means I catch everything and wanting to avoid attending the doctors on yet another occasion, I decided to try natural remedies.
I have tried the tea tree oil on it every night and although I was quite positive to begin with, I soon gave up on this idea. I have a book on natural remedies which gives you all kinds of oils and herbs to try, but the two recent tips I have been given are as follows:-
Put a clove or crush a clove of garlic; place it directly onto the verruca and put a plaster over it immediately.
Using the inside of a banana skin, either rub it over the verruca 2 or 3 times a day or cut a piece of banana skin large enough to cover the verruca and tape it over so it is completely covered (the verruca not the banana!.
It doesn't say how long to do this for (it was on the BBC website to from a loony as it sounds!) and it might get quite smelly, but at the end of my tether, I am going to put this to the test and was wondering if anyone else had tried it before?
Look forward to replies,
