You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995, vol. 85 no. 11 717-718). ...Read more
May not be a wart: If this is a subsequent result of originally freezing a suspicious lesion, it may be the effect of the initial cryotherapy and it may be the scab formed. However, not all lesions on the foot are warts, and the ones that change in color are suspicious and should be biopsied. Go to a podiatrist to have it examined. ...Read more

Do not scrape...: In your attempt to get to the root of the problem by scraping the virus away, you are actually spreading the virus. Warts thrive on the foot, in part, because of the increased moisture. You must dry or dehydrate the surrounding skin before debridement can work. There are various solutions that will do the job. Consult with a foot specialist for the various options. ...Read more

How do you get rid of a wart using duck tape? I have one on my toe and starting to really hurt and bother me.
Occlusive therapy: Duct tape or the sticky part of a band aid (not the white part) can be used to 'smother' the wart and thereby get the immune system to recognize there is a problem there...an infection! Warts get away with their dirty work because the immune system 'doesn't know' there's a problem. The tape therapy makes the body wake up and go kill the viruses. Usually it has to be done for a week or more. ...Read more
There is wart splitting that is hurting. What do I need to? The wart is under her toe in the crease. She is five years old, and it is bleeding.
Given her age, I would not even attempt to deal with this on your own. Bring her to a podiatrist or dermatologist.
Don't be alarmed about the bleeding. Warts are very vascular, and they build a network of blood vessels around themselves, and bleeding is common. No one ever bleed to death from a wart. Keep it clean & dry, cover it with a band aid or some sort of dry, sterile dressing, reassure her it's not anything she did, not a cleanliness issue, and she will be ok. And set up an appointment as soon as you can. ...Read more

I've had this "corn" or "wart" by my little toe for almost a year now. I never had it before. It's a little bump, but it hurts. What is it?
You Choose.: One can never be sure without actually seeing the toe, but my money is on "corn". Your age is not right for a wart, and in a year's time it would have grown large. The corn is the result of skin being trapped between the shoe and the underlying bone. Time and pressure cause the skin to thicken for protection. All the various treatments boil down to changing shoes or changing the bone's structure. ...Read more
