Wart removal

Post by xandreu »

Can anyone recommend a good (hopefully not too expensive) place to go to get a wart removed?

And if you have any idea how much it's likely to be?

Thanks

I had a little one develop on my knuckle years ago - I got one of those 'wart off' freeze cans and gave it a shot after a long soak, it was gone in days and no scar left at all. Great stuff if you can lay your hands on one here - Pharmacie de la Gare probably best bet.

If it is for genital warts, can't help you sorry. :-)

I had never had warts as a kid, but for some reason I had some appear on my fingers about 25 years ago. I didn't like the idea of getting them burnt off, and there was no google at that time, so I went to the library and looked for natural methods to remove warts.
I found one that said that some people had reported success by rubbing vitamin E cream on the warts. So I gave that a shot.
Morning and evening I would rub some of the vitamin E cream on the warts, about 3 weeks later they were all gone and have never returned. :thumb:

Thanks for the advice. It's not for me it's for my partner who's been telling me they need to be removed at a clinic.

Nice to know you can buy cream or cans of freeze-off stuff. You've just saved me a few bucks :)

I encourage people to use natural methods. Choose whichever method you like. Aloe vera is one.

Those wanting a more aggressive approach, buy Iodine at a pharmacy, and apply regularly.

I just remembered, I had a couple of warts earlier this year. I bought some E-Nat cream from a pharmacy on Koh Pich, rubbed it on and same result as above.

Grandma's remedy was , she would buy the wart off you for a old copper penny which you would place over the wart and hold there with a rag or sticky tape until forever. Eventually ,,, you would take the penny off and lo and behold, you would find the wart was gone.

True.
