Does anyone know the best way to get rid of plantar warts?
On my heal I have 3 small plantar warts and a bigger one, all in one area. It started with just the one like 2 years ago and then spread to 3 smaller ones. I tried using several methods to get rid of these nasty buggers including the Compound W freeze off wart remover. I used it twice and it hasn't done anything. The warts don't really bother me unless I apply pressure then they hurt a little. But I am going into my 5th month of pregnancy and I want to get rid of them before they cause problems. I have run out of ideas, I was just going to go to the doctor but I want to see if I can get rid of them myself.
Does anyone have any home or OTC remedies?
If not, what does the doctor do to get rid of them?
I know this is going to sound weird, but it works! Go to the store and get a can of Arrid X spray deodorant (not the regular roll on, it has to be the spray). I bought the yellow can. Two or three times a day, spray the bottoms of your feet with it. Within a week, you will see a dramatic improvement! My son had about 20 warts on his feet and within 2 weeks, all of them were gone and they have not ever returned. This tip was passed on to me by my sister who is an RN. I was really skeptical, but willing to try anything to avoid having the poor kid have to get them burned off. I was amazed when it actually worked! I'm not sure why it works, the only thing I can think of is that it must dry up the oxygen supply to the warts or something like that.
Do you think it works with any other brands? I discovered long ago that I'm allergic to arrid (and finding out that you are allergic to a deodorant is not fun...). I've tried everything (acid, duct tape, doctor...) and my warts just keep multiplying. I'm up to 3 on the left and 3 on the right.
