Well, this is one I never knew about! I have had a verruca on the bottom of my foot for a few months now. I have tried everything to get rid of it but nothing has worked. I have since found an article saying that you can get rid of them by sticking a piece of duct tape over the top of them and leaving them! Anyone else tried this??

Nope.

I normally cut them out myself with a sterilised sharp knife.

Edit: I say "normally" but I haven't had one for years now...

My Mum did it to me when I was little. It worked.

I like your random posting history.

I would try that but this one is quite deep into my foot and I dont want to gouge it out

Dipping your finger into sprits-of-salts gets rid them, and your finger.

WD-40 and Duct Tape are the only tools you need in your toolbox.
If it's not stuck and it's supposed to be--Duct Tape it!
If it's stuck and it's not supposed to be--WD-40 it!

GT85 is far superior to WD40 for most lube applications. :nerd

I found the verruca killer stuff in a tube (forget the name) works if you follow the instructions to the letter. I found the stuff useless until I did soak my feet and do the scraping. I was only scraping to begin with, so the warm water immersion element appears to add some extra magic, perhaps in opening out the skin or making it more porous or something. DIY attempts didn't meet with much success, except in transferring verrucas to the finger tips and making a mess of the skin.

Go to a chiropodist. They will either freeze it and cut it out or burn it out. Either way, it will get sorted.
