How to Get Rid of a Mosaic Wart

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
Mosaic warts are some of the most stubborn warts out there. Here is how you can get rid of them.


Method one
  1. Soak the wart in Epsom salts every five days until soft.
  2. File the wart with an emery board until you get off the top layer of skin or the wart begins to bleed.
  3. Put duct tape on the wart. Do Not Remove The Duct Tape For Five Days. If the wart is exposed to air for too long, it will return to being stubborn.
  4. Repeat
Method Two
  1. Soak your hand in the bath tub until the wart is extremely soft and sensitive.
  2. File the wart all the way down until it is even with your skin.
  3. Apply bleach where the wart used to be.
Method Three
  1. Buy Dr. Scholl's Salicylic Acid Wart Remover Clear Away One Step Invisible Strips.
  2. Follow the directions on the back of the box.
  3. After using the treatment three times, file your wart with an emery board until level with skin.


  • Always apply bleach after ridding of the wart. It continues to kill the root.
  • Continue treatment until the root comes out. The root of the wart is a white stringy substance. Once the root is out, the wart cannot return.
  • If all else fails, leave it alone. Warts have a life span and will eventually die. True for most but I have had them for years and tried every thing including leaving them for at least 3 years so I wouldn't suggest just leaving them
