Carefully

you bascially just want to cut the duct tape so that you cover the warts. YOu also don;t want the tape to bother you so you can cut it in a shape that is conducive to the anatomical area.

Will using duct tape work on facial warts?

It may

Doctors
There is conflicting evidence for the use of duct tape on cutaneous warts. This would include facial warts. Nonetheless, it likely will not hurt you to try! Choose the stickier and the silver colored type for maximum effectiveness! All the best.

Plantar warts and duct tape method. How effective is this?

Unknown...

Verruca
It is a treatment recommendation that has spread over the internet. As far as I know, there are no scientific studies to show any degree of effectiveness. You are basically just tearing the upper layers of the skin away as the tape is removed. There are better ways... see a podiatrist.

Dr. John Ebner answered:

I have had flat warts on my legs for ten years. I've used Duct tape and apple cider vinegar for two months. It helps but new ones come back. Help?

See a Dermatologist

Leg
Flat warts can be a real challenge. First, shaving over warts tends to spread them. Second, topical wart preparations can be cumbersome to apply and are less effective for this type of wart. I would see your PCP or a Dermatologist to talk about options. Prescription medications and In-office procedures could solve your problem. Good luck to you.
