Yes, a known remedy: As in one of earlier post regarding home remedy for warts--tea tree oil, raw garlic, and duct-tape etc...Have been shown to be effective. But, about 60-65% of warts go away without treatment in about 2 years. Otc compound-w can be quite effective as well, if used appropriately. If these measures not adequate, consult your doc.

Yes, but won't work: Seborrheic keratoses sometimes go away when massaged twice a day with castor oil. They look warty but are not warts. Honest to goodness warts are caused by a virus and will not respond to castor oil. Try Mediplast tape on real warts. Generally works well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I treated my hand wart with oregano oil. It turned black now what do I do. Keep it covered? Is it contagious?
Just watch it: The next time you need a wart removed, get with something scientific rather than a "pop" remedy that looks like an internet prank.

All warts are somewhat contagious. Best wishes. ...Read more

Salicylic acid: If the wart is small and not on face, I generally recommend doing the following every other day for 2 wks: soaking wart with warm water, gently thin out the wart with an emory board, apply liquid 17% salicylic acid, cover with 40% salicylic acid tape, then apply duct tape (or surgical tape) over it to occlude. The wart will soften and peel off. Some require liquid nitrogen or laser treatments. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
