I've been experimenting with duct tape on various skin problems. I've heard it works because the stickum is latex. What will it work for?

In brief: Warts

Definitely works for warts though not 100% I have seen it reported a number of times in the literature including "up-to-date".
Be careful though as duct tape on the face and sensitive areas can cause quite a bit of irritation.
