No: Wart-removal acids sold over-the-counter can get rid of hand warts. One's primary care doctor or a dermatologist can freeze the warts. If a person has many warts on her hand, there are other medications that a dermatologist can try. Fruits are not going to get rid of warts... but sometimes warts do go away on their own. ...Read more

Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

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
