The Easiest and Cheapest Natural Wart Treatment

Got a wart that needs to go? This Natural Wart Remedy is the cheapest one around and it really works! I tried several natural wart remedies, but this worked the best. Would YOU try this?

I’m always on the hunt for natural remedies to treat ear infections, sinus infections, headaches, and more.  I’m just not a fan of prescription meds, or even OTC medications, mainly since one of the things that contributed to my health issues (including candida) is overuse of meds and antibiotics in general.

So when warts surfaced in our home, I was not about to just run to the store to get an OTC cream – and I for sure wasn’t ready to pay $30 (how did it get that high?!) for a physician copay to have it removed from my son’s foot.

Warts are not a pleasant topic.

If you’ve ever had a wart, you know how hard it can be to get rid of it.

And it’s worse if you’ve got more than one wart. Once they start spreading they can really be tough to get rid of.

About 1 month ago I was helping my youngest get changed for bed. I don’t remember now what happened or why I noticed it, but I saw two small “somethings” on the sole of his foot, near the heel.

I wouldn’t have thought much of them, except for the fact that I remembered having a plantar’s wart when I was a young girl.

It was painful and it took a long time to get rid of it.

I think we went to the store and got an over-the-counter wart remover and I applied it over and over again.

And they’re gross.

Back to my son.

I took a closer look at his foot and scraped a little of the surface off of the skin.

It felt hard underneath, and I could see the tell-tale little brownish-black dots in the center of a pattern.

The dots are called wart seeds sometimes, but they really are little blood clots.

Blech.

Anyway, he clearly had two of them.

Then, my son showed me a “callous” on his toe.

Hmmmm…..

It was a big one. But was it really a callous?

I went to the internet and found a site with a great diagnostic information.

How To Tell the Difference Between a Callous and a Wart!

To tell the difference between a callous and a wart, you press on it:

  • If it hurts pushing straight down on it–it’s a callous.
  • If it hurts putting pressure on the sides (by squeezing it)–it’s a wart.

Sure enough. No pain pressing down, but when I squeezed it, my son wasn’t happy.

Now it was time to try to get rid of them.

Natural Treatments for Warts

We’d tried using oregano oil before on a wart on my husband’s finger.

It really worked great, but we weren’t consistent enough to get rid of it, so it’s still there.

One day we were on a road trip. I put the oregano oil on it and within 3 hours it went from being a raised wart to being level with the rest of his skin.

So I tried the oregano oil on my son’s foot for several days.

Again, I wasn’t consistent enough and no surprise–nothing happened.

I really wanted to be consistent with the oregano, but life was getting in the way.

So I hopped back on the internet and even asked my fans on my Facebook page for their ideas. (hop on over there if you haven’t already, K?)

Well, let me tell you, there were loads of ideas….

Plantar Wart Remedies

  • OTC topical treatments (not going there again)
  • super glue (doesn’t sounds very natural to me)
  • apple cider vinegar (I did this once for a wart on my hand. It ended up burning the surrounding skin and was super painful)
  • banana peel (the inside of it)
  • concoctions of all sorts
  • cutting them off (not an option. No way)
  • removal by a physician (I’d read over and over that the wart often comes back. This is the case for one of my son’s friends.)

and one that really caught my eye.

Urine.

Yeppers. You all remember my post, Unbelievable Ear Infection Natural Treatment, right?

Well, at the time I tried that in my son’s ear (of course, after reading all over the internet that urine therapy has been used by many cultures for many years and there was even an international convention on it–so don’t think I’m just so crazy that I’ll try anything that I read on the internet–’cause I’m not), I was already trying this on my son’s warts.

But I wasn’t sure if it was going to take care of the more stubborn ones so I didn’t want to share it yet.

Well, now you can see what happened and judge for yourself:

How to Treat a Plantar Wart

  1. Have child urinate in a cup (we had a cup specially designated for this task to avoid unpleasant “glass confusion” :-).
  2. Cut small pieces of cotton that will cover the affected area.
  3. Soak cotton in urine and squeeze to remove excess.
  4. Place cotton piece on wart.
  5. Cut duct tape in appropriate shape and cover the wart and cotton completely.
  6. Repeat one time daily.

We did this for a few weeks. It would have gone faster if I’d remembered to change the cotton daily, but I forgot occasionally.

But every day we noticed an obvious change in the big wart.

Plantar Wart Healing a Bit

And now, this is what his toe looks like:

Plantar Wart Gone

All gone except for some peeling skin.

And the other warts are gone as well.

Even while we were treating the first 3, one more showed up on the other foot (lovely) and that one is gone as well.

Now, I am thinking the oregano oil would have worked if I had been more diligent, but I would forget sometimes and frankly, urine is a lot cheaper.  But if you’re squeemish about the urine thing, then hop over to Native American Nutritionals and get some oregano oil. It’s great stuff and is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. I’ve even heard of folks treating MRSA successfully with it. Now that’s something to have on hand, you know?

If you’re curious about  why I recommend Native American Nutritionals, you can read my who series on Which Essential Oils Company is Best.

But I tried the urine also because the testimonials were so emphatic.

One was even pretty hilarious.

A man said his whole family had been plagued by plantar warts–except for him.

He thought it was because he had the habit of urinating in the shower, so he thought his feet were getting a natural anti-wart treatment every day.

I don’t know, but interesting, huh?

I’m not sure why my son got all of these, but they did start when he was wearing footie PJs and during winter when he was wearing winter boots around a lot, and his feet would get all sweaty.

I never liked those footie sleepers because they made my feet sweaty and sweaty feet are like a breeding ground for warts.

No more footie sleepers for him.

And no more warts for him either.

Happy mom!

Think I’m Crazy?

Likely you think this is just gross and NUTS, right?

Well, check out this book – it’s got some very nice reviews.

I say – if you can get things done naturally and inexpensively then it’s worth looking at :).

  1. My son has a huge plantars wart on the bottom of his foot, and I just began treating it with oregano oil. We have seen a huge difference in the last 2 days, since I deciding to do it. I put a drop directly on the wart, cover with a band-aid, and wrap tape around his foot to keep the band-aid on over night (at least). We do all of this right before bed. Working so far… :)

  2. I’ve got to try the urine thing. As for the Banana peel, it only works with a green banana peel, the greener the better, Put it on overnight with either tape or a big bandaid (the inside part of the peel against the wart) . To keep the banana peel green longer place the whole banana in a plastic bag and just cut pieces of the peel off as you need it. If the peel is super green it works fast (about a week), but as soon as it turns yellow, it does nothing. it’s a pain to try and find green peel, so i am definitely going to use urine next time ;0

    I had a RCMP info me they they were told and some other groups who teach survival techniques tell the men, yep, for men to pee on their feet while in the shower (now that would be a bit harder for us women). The urine will help to prevent Plantar warts from starting. Plantar warts are caused by a virus and normally picked up from public showers, gym or locker room floors, around swimming pools, even from guests who have the warts-transferred by using your shower or walking barefoot on your bathroom floor, etc. Plantar warts (Plantar Fasciitis-Latin name) are only found on the foot (toes, sole of foot, heel, etc.). They can be very persistent and difficult to treat and I can attest to that. Just do not let them go for too long, if left untreated they can go VERY deep and grow in & around bone, into tendons, etc. . So as nasty as this urine cure sounds.. there is truth to it, science to back the claim up, it is natural and it’s free.

  4. I’ve lived on the gulf coast all my life and jelly fish stings are just a part of swimming in the gulf. Urine is one of the best ways to relieve that nasty sting. (Meat tenderizer works well, too, but who remembers to pack that in your beach bag!)

  5. Hello there!! I’ve been wanting to thank you for posting this. My 6 year old son has been dealing with planters warts on the bottom of his foot since September, maybe even longer. We tried over the counter stuff and it seem liked it was working but never getting to the core of the wart. Finally, I went to the doctor and the they froze them off, seemed like it worked but still not completely gone. We tried this yet again with the doc and same thing. I found this article and thought ” let’s give this a try, it seems at this point why not!” He was game for it, so we did it. Every night he peed in the cup and we soaked the cotton ball in the pee and taped it to his foot. Everyday we kept seeing excellent results. After only 2 weeks of doing this, no more warts!!!!! I can not tell how excited we are to have our son’s feet back. The poor thing could barely even walk on his feet because it was so painful. He keep wishing and praying they would go away, when Christmas came around he said the only this he wanted was for his warts to go away. Thank you for posting this and believe me I will be sharing this story so others don’t have to wait months for these painful warts to go away. Forever grateful!

  6. I suffered from plantar’s warts when I was in elementary school. I never went to the doctor and don’t recall how we remedied the problem. Recently I discovered one on my heel. I scraped it off myself and am now trying tea tree oil on it since it worked on a wart on my hand in my collegiate years. Hoping this will do the trick. The stuff works for so many other things I figured it is possible to work on this too!

  7. If you have celandine plant in your area – try it (bad, it is only for spring-autumn period). Pick a stem of flower and you`ll see thick yellow sap drop on the break end. Carefully (!) drop it on the wart. Try not to affect clear skin, because sap is very burning. You can even protect the skin around the wart with layer of cream or Vaseline.
    Repeat for 3 days (1 drop a day). The wart has to turn black (it will still stay inside the skin or deeper). In 3-4 weeks it has to come out (with regenerating skin): first the black body of wart itself and then in 1 week (or so) – remains of wart “roots” (blood clots). The most natural remedy ever :) And for free)

  8. This is very interesting to me! Although I am a registered nurse, I always think natural before pharmaceutical!

    Any idea if this works on other types of warts, or only plantar?

    Thanks for the great post!

    Interesting. … I may try this. Do you have a link to the aforementioned Facebook post with the comments?

  10. I have one wart on the side of my left hand (been “burned” off many times-all unsuccessful) and a second wart right by the quick of my thumbnail on my right hand (an extremely tender place–no way could it be burned off-ouch!) My question: How long do you leave the urine-soaked Band-Aids on? Does it have to be 24/7 and then changed the next night, or only overnight? Can you see my problem with urine soaked Band-Aids while trying to prepare food?

    • I left them on 24/7 and changed them each night. I think you could do it as much as you like. It doesn’t need to be soaked – just enough to have urine on the wart. You could use latex type gloves while this is going on if necessary. Hope that helps!
