from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
At one time in your life you have probably had or known someone who has had a wart or a plantar wart and have tried to remove them. If you use over the counter medicines, good, keep using them, but in a modified way. Try either of these remedies in addition to speed up recovery.


Epsom Salts Method
  1. Soak your foot in water or water with Epsom salts. These can be bought at any drug store.
  2. Scrape off all dead skin on the wart area.
  3. Add the patch and put the bandage (or whatever cover they provide) over it.
  4. Repeat steps daily.
Daffodil Method
  1. Find a cluster of daffodils.[1]
  2. Rough up your wart by scratching it.
  3. Put some white sap onto the wart and rub the plant all over and into the wart.
  4. Don't wash the sap off the wart for a while. Reapply the white sap if you wash it off.
  5. Do this every day for a week or two.
  6. Leave it and go on to another wart. In a month or two your wart should be gone or going away.


  • Don't wash it off, let it get into the wart. scratch some skin off.
  • When removing your sock or shoe, make sure that it does not scrape any part of the patch or cover off your foot.
  • Duct tape works in place of the patch
  • Make sure that every time you see daffodils, you use it on your wart. So do it daily or every couple of days.
  • Do this and forget that you have the wart(s). Don't fiddle with them.
  • When applying the patch and the cover, wash your foot with a washcloth to remove any dirt on your foot that could cause the patch to come off.
  • After applying the patch and the cover, press it onto your foot as hard as you can and try to shape it to the shape of your foot.
  • Do not remove the patch; keep it on for about a week, which smothers the wart and in result takes a lot less time.


  • If your wart continues to grow and starts to hurt then contact your doctor or dermatologist so they can remove it with the "big guns."
  • A planter wart, which grows deeply into the sole of the foot, may be cut-out similar to a 1/4 inch cubic plug, by a physician.
  • It will heal as an "ulcer" from inner to outer therefore do not introduce salves, strong cleaners or medications to the wound or your exposed tissues will be damaged. Just wash with very mild soapy water, dry your foot and wear clean socks. After the surgery it should NOT become sore or infected: if it does see a doctor!
