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.

The banana peel worked for me. I had warts on my left hand. I rubbed the banana peel on my hand every day for a few minutes. It took a couple of weeks, and so far no more warts.

i USED THE BANANA PEEL ON MY DAUGHTERS WART ON FOOT AND IT WORKED. aLSO WHEN MY SON WAS SMALL, HE HAD A CLUSTER OF WARTS ON HIS ARM AND i WAS TOLD TO USE iODINE AND IT WORKED AND HE HAD NO MORE.

A young boy on my school bus had at least ten large warts on his hands. I also had a few and ocasionally discussed the methods he was using as an attempt at removing them. One day i suddenly realised most of his warts were gone leaving only pale patches on his skin. When I asked what he had used I couldnt beleive it was banana skin so im going to give it a try.
