Is Duct Tape the Best Verruca Treatment?

It is my personal favorite. Watch this video to find out why!

How Does Duct Tape Work:

Duct Tape removes warts in these ways:

  • It mechanically debrides the top layer of skin when the wart is pulled away.
  • The emery board and pumice stone also debride away the wart.
  • Occlusion and water maceration occur underneath the duct tape, loosening the skin and priming it for any mechanical debridement.
  • These things combine to stimulate an immunologic awareness of the wart site; whether it is inflammation or irritation, white blood cells flood into the area and destroy the foreign wart cells and particles.

Verruca Duct Tape Removal Treatment Method – Does it Work?

The studies are all over the place on the use of duct tape.

  • Some say it works great, and everyone else is just trying to steal your money, and then other studies say duct tape does not work at all.
  • The truth is it probably helps a good deal(at least to me) for normal warts.
  • It is cheap, easy, and if the wart is still there, as in cases of really resistant warts, try something else!

Treatment Instructions

  • Cut out a piece of duct tape.
  • Cleanse your skin and the wart with rubbing alcohol.
  • Put the piece of tape on.
  • Debride the skin with a pumice stone or emery board after you take the tape off 3-4 days later, but not to the point of pain!
  • Repeat this for 2-3 months.

 Combine with Apple Cider Vinegar

  • According to the Mayo Clinic- duct tape can be combined with apple cider vinegar.
  • This method is also straightforward, and you will need: Apple Cider Vinegar, A Q-tip applicator, and a Band-aid.
  • Just use the Q tip to apply vinegar to the wart (yes, this will sting a little), then put a band-aid over it while you go to sleep. This will turn the wart black after a little while.
  • There are not many studies for this, but people claim it works for them.
  • Combine this with the duct tape method for added results.
