Wart on Face

Posted by Tony (Columbus, OH) on 11/21/2006

I have a wart on the left side of my face. I had it cut off by the doctor 3 years ago and it started growing back. I really need some GOOD advice on how to get rid of this thing! I've tried the duct tape method and now i'm trying the banana peel remedy. Maybe I don't have enough patience or maybe it's not working...I don't know. everyone is saying how their plantar warts are gone, but what about regular warts on the face? Please help someone!

Tony: Try some dissolved aspirin with water mixed with a drop of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Apply lightly 4x per day. Vinegar and a drop of hydrogen peroxide 3% also was helpful too. Warts is a viral condition. Therefore lavender, will also help too. In some cases zinc acetate, or zinc chloride solution (5%) will help. I prefer to mix 50/50 with magnesium chloride of another 5% added to help. It seems to work and frequency of application seems to help. Take some 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid and 1/2 glass of water will prevent the body from getting warts help. Some zinc supplements once a week 25 mg also will help prevention in some ways. Ted

I had 2 wars on my face, and took zinc. They got worse for the first 2 weeks. The 3rd and 4th week, they went back to the original size. The 5th week, they started to turn into regular skin.

Take zinc, up to 600mg per day. Also using ACV doesn't hurt.

Iodine solution helps. I found this method from earth clinic many years ago and it really helped my father very quickly. Just put Iodine using Q-tips on the wart directly.

A diet rich in high quality saturated fats with plenty of fat soluble vitamins in them will significantly reduce your warts and prevent them in future. I started getting warts on a low fat diet. Since I started a diet rich in coconut oil, butter, raw milk, two pastured eggs a day, new warts have simply ceased to occur. I think fats helps the body fight viruses.
