Q. I have heard that a banana peel can be helpful against warts but I am not clear on how you would use it. My doctor burns off several warts yearly but they inevitably come back. I would be grateful if you would share the specifics of how to use a banana peel to treat warts.
A. Cut a piece of banana skin slightly larger than the wart. Use tape to hold the white fleshy side next to the wart. Leave it on overnight. Use a new slice of banana skin daily for a couple of weeks.
We make no promises, but other readers tell us that the banana skin remedy can work. A woman complained that burning warts off was expensive ($600) and painful. Although it took one month, the banana skin was painless and affordable, especially since she enjoyed eating the bananas as a bonus.
