Just like potassium, L-Lysine can also strengthen your immune system and some studies show that a diet low in L-lysine can weaken your immune system leading to warts but…
Taking L-lysine supplements or eating more foods that are high in L-Lysine like tuna, salmon, beef, chicken & yogurt will help to both prevent and get rid of warts.
5. Take immune boosting herbs
You can tape crushed basil to your warts using waterproof tape, medical tape or cover it with a bandage and you'll want to keep doing this everyday for at least 1-to-2 weeks until the wart is gone.

Once you've placed the aloe juice on your wart, cover it with a bandage and do this daily until your wart is gone.

5 medical treatments
It is generally recommend that surgery be used as a last resort for wart removal unless your warts are very large, uncomfortable or very painful because even with expensive surgery There is always a chance you could have a reoccurrence of warts
Aldara (or imiquimod) is an expensive treatment administered by your doctor that stimulates your immune system into fighting off your warts.
26. High grade freezing
This treatment is many times stronger than Over-The-Counter freezing kits like Compound W Freeze Off where your dermatologist may use liquid nitrogen to freeze off the wart at an extremely low temperature of -320°F or -196°C whereas…
Your at home freezing kit will only get as cold as -70°F or -57°C.
27. Burn them off
Lasers or electrical burning (cautery) can be used but scarring is highly possible with these methods.
This is basically where the wart is cut out in a painful procedure and scarring will most certainly be a result.
Injections of candida (or yeast) or bleomycin (which is a chemotherapeutic agent used in cancer treatments) are effective wart treatments.
29. Other prescription medications
You can have your doctor prescribe you podofilox (Condylox), trichloroacetic acid, 5-fluorouracil cream or cantharidin.

I would just like to say i have a plantar wart on the ball of my left foot and the nail polish, freezing and duct tape method does not work it isn't doing anything and i now see the growth of the 3 more warts forming because of the duct tape. I am now going to try the Apple Cider Vinegar method and see if that will work.
P.s. the acid doesn't work either.

I've been getting freezing treatment with no real results (they kept coming back and kept getting worse, despite complete removal and freezing twice a week). I switched to duct tape and a combination of immune boosting vitamins, the L-lysine, and got back on a good diet/exercise routine. Warts are almost gone and my hand is looking normal for the first time in almost a year.

You can't take 600mg of Zinc! Try it and you will find your body react via nausea and throwing up. The dosage shouldn't go over 100mg of Zinc after meals a day. Most people have to start out with only 15-45mg before they can increase to 100mg (if 100mg is required at all).
October 23, 2013
True - Zinc can be toxic.

I just wanted to warn everyone to avoid the high grade freezing if at all possible. My dermatologist offered it without cautioning me that it usually causes scars. The scars are much worse than the warts ever were, and another dermatologist told me this is common.
I have warts up my legs due to my razor starting on the tops of my feet (which tend to develop warts) and running all the way up my legs. Basically, the razor drags the virus from my feet up my legs, while inserting it into fresh cuts on my leg skin.
I am hopeful that one of these methods will eliminate the warts once and for all.

I had a wart on my right ring finger for years. I also have herpes simplex and a friend told me that taking L-Lysine would help prevent outbreaks, so I started taking L-Lysine. After what seemed like only 2 or 3 weeks, I noticed that my wart had dissapeared, and it has not been back!
I just decided to see if L-Lysine really could be the reason the wart went away, so I did a search on it tonight, and YES, L-Lysine CAN eliminate warts!
Why did the doctors never mention this???
I HIGHLY recommend taking L-Lysine to get rid of warts! Your body needs it anyway, and you can only get it by eating it! I would not be surprised if many vegetarians are L-Lysine deficient, and therefore exhibiting warts!

My 10yr old daughter had 7 warts on her hands and after being told by the doctor to go find acid and duct tape to cure the warts I was not pleased. The pain, scaring and the amount of time to keep your hands wrapped in duct tape was not going to be easy. I talked to the pharmacist and he recommended stomach acid reducer pills. I purchased them (I bought the Walmart brand) and went home to do some research and I gave her 2 pills by mouth in the morning and in 2 at night. In 3 weeks all the warts were gone and 2 years later she still is wart free! No scars no pain and no side effects from the acid reducer!

I tried many of the suggested treatments. However it only works for 1 or 2 of the warts then it almost look like they adapt to survive the treatments. I know it sounds crazy. It started with 1 wart on my left hand in 1999 and every time I used the freeze treatment, a new one would pop up. I now have 5 warts on my left hand and 3 on my left foot. I gave up the freeze treatment because it was extremely painful, especially for the warts under the nails. The doctor made me do it every week for 3 months and it solved nothing. Duofilm and filing worked for 1 wart and helps reduce their size. However, the most success I had, although not complete, was using some bandages with Salicylic Acid. I leave on them for 3 days (it is painful on the nails warts so I recommend taking a mild pain filler at the same time to be able to function during the day) then remove, clean, peel off the dead skin and start again. It does damage the skin around but it does not seem to be permanent. So far I managed to remove 2 of them using this method. I am still going...if this doesn't work, I am going for the surgery. 14 years with warts on your fingers is ridiculous. I am embarrassed to show my hands and although I like foot massages I can't go there because I am embarrassed by my newly acquired warts on my left foot.

I'm having this silly wart on my nose & it's been here for 3 years, already had it cauterized thrice but it keeps on coming back. Gotta try some suggestions in your list. Thanks.
August 28, 2013
These are very good suggestions actually. Try the various methods, and save freezing or burning or surgery for last because they are the most dramatic and can damage your skin the most. I like the duct tape idea, and I'm buying the betadine to try that as well.

hi...thanks for the info
