Finger Nail Polish for a Plantar Wart?

Well, never tried it.  Never talked directly to someone who has tried it, much less been successful with it, but I have seen it mentioned in forums more than a few times.

So, I decided I would include it here.

From what I've read, the nail polish supposedly cuts off any air supply that aids the wart to live, thus killing it.  Kind of like using duct tape

I also have read where a few people have used both with success.

I suppose it makes sense.  Would love to hear if it worked for anyone.

What Causes Plantar Warts Anyway?

They appear seemingly out of nowhere.  Sneaking up on the bottom of an unsuspecting foot planting themselves firmly, staking their claim and taking up residence.  For some it seems to feel like permanent residence.

They hurt.  Bad.  They take a normal, active healthy life and hold it hostage.  Replacing it with a memory of feet that used to carry their owner effortlessly throughout the busy day.  Now days are filled gauging which previously normal activities will be sacrificed just to be able to make it through the day.

So what is the cause of these raging demons otherwise known as a Plantar Wart?

Well, according to the Mayo Clinic, a Plantar Wart is caused by an infection brought about by the Human PapillomaVirus (HPV).  The virus has many varieties and the variety that causes Plantar Warts needs an entry point into the foot in the form of a small cut, crack, softened skin and so on.

While this HPV strain isn't highly contagious, it is believed that walking barefoot in a community shower, health club, etc. environment is a open invitation to allow a Plantar Wart to take up residence on the bottom of your foot.

Another major contributing factor that determines an invasion of a Plantar Wart is an individual's immune system.  Like any other disease, illness or ailment, a healthy immune system gives one a "foot up" (sorry for the pun) in fighting off what is trying to attack it.

Best recommendations to avoid a Plantar Wart?  Wear protective shoes or sandals when entering and using a public area that can host the HPV virus.  Most of all, always be consciously building and maintaining a healthy immune system.  Not only to fight off a Plantar Wart attack, but to keep all disease at bay.

Oregano Essential Oil to Get Rid of Plantar Warts

While I haven't spoken with anyone who has tried this to treat a Plantar Wart, I have read several articles that boast the effectiveness of using Oregano Essential oil to get rid of a wart.

Oregano, a member of the mint family, is a Mediterranean plant.  Oregano Essential Oil  possesses properties that boost the immune system and also acts as an anti-inflammatory.  It is especially effective in combating micro-organisms, viruses and fungus.

To apply, simply combine 1 part Oregano Essential oil to 3 parts carrier oil and apply directly to the wart several times per day.   Cover with tape after each application.

How to Get Rid of Warts? Persistence!

There's an old saying I heard constantly back in the day when I made my living in automobile sales:

Persistence Wears Down Resistance

Well, fortunately I'm not making my living selling cars any more, but I realized when recalling this little saying  how it applies to warts, and well, any chronic fungus, virus or ailment that is difficult to get rid of. 

Because Plantar Warts are caused by a virus and viruses can be frustratingly stubborn and resistant to get rid of, persistence is just as important, if not more important than the treatment you choose to eliminate the wart.  

I've heard from many people who have had success using Essentially Gone to get rid of their Plantar Wart and a common thread I often hear is that they have success right away, the wart begins to go away so they ease off on applying the oil and here comes the wart again, with all it's pain and frustration and resistance.  

So here they are again, starting from scratch, applying the oil.  Success happens with so many people when they are persistent in treating the wart.  

So if you have a Plantar Wart and are treating it using Essentially Gone,  Duct Tape, Apple Cider Vinegar or any other treatments, I would very much like to recommend that you are tenaciously persistent in the treatment of your choice so you can get rid of that Plantar Wart once and for all!

Essentially Gone - Best Way to Get Rid of Plantar Warts

A couple of years ago, I helped someone who struggled for many months trying unsuccessfully to get rid of several plantar warts.

He tried over the counter treatments.  He tried home remedies.  Duct tape almost worked.  Tea Tree Essential oil helped a lot, but not completely.  Bee Propolis seemed to be making a difference for a few days, but then the warts won the battle once again.

It was a frustrating and painful time.

Then a light bulb kind of went off and I remembered that essential oils combined together can work more effectively than on their own.  A synergistic blend working together to create a home remedy for his plantar warts!

I blended essential oils that have anti-viral properties, one that has analgesic properties to reduce the unrelenting pain of plantar warts.  We tried this synergistic blend of essential oils and do you know that within two weeks the warts he had suffered and struggled with for six months were essentially gone and after another week or so, those warts were a thing of the past. Could this be the best way to get rid of plantar warts??

I was encouraged to make this synergistic blend of essential oils available to others who suffer from plantar warts.  That's how Essentially Gone was developed.  Kind of our of last ditch desperation. And it worked.  The really encouraging thing is that Essentially Gone has helped many other Plantar Wart sufferers.

Here is some feedback I've received:

  • This stuff DOES work!!! I waited to leave fb to see if it did!! Very pleased!!!
  • OMG!! This stuff is incredible. My wart was gone in days!!
  • Gets rid of subborn warts. Much better than paying $300-$400 at foot doctor! TKS
  • I think it is working...finally...I have tried everything!!

Perhaps it can work for you.

Castor Oil & Baking Soda for Plantar Warts

Here is another remedy I read about, don't have any experience with it, but others swear by it.

Make a paste using baking soda and Castor oil and apply it directly to the wart. Repeat this process until the wart is gone.  Like other poultices and such, I imagine a challenge would be to get the paste to remain on the bottom of your foot.  If the paste is thick enough, perhaps gauze and tape will hold it in place.

I'm really interested in hearing if this has worked for anyone....

How To Use Garlic To Get Rid Of Plantar Warts

Garlic contains natural antioxidants that are believed to attack and kill bacterial, fungal and viral infections.

Since Plantar Warts are caused by the HPV virus and therefore a viral infection, garlic can be effective on eliminating a Plantar Wart.

How To Use Garlic On A Plantar Wart

Crush between two and four pods of garlic depending on the area to be treated.

Apply the crushed garlic directly to the wart and secure with gauze on tape.

Leave on for several hours.

Remove and repeat several times per day until the wart is completely gone.
