Is she a psychiatrist or Dermatologist or both. In the beginning of the audio the man states " you are a psychiatrist".

PEOPLE'S PHARMACY RESPONSE: SHE IS BOTH.

I just stumbled upon a cure for plantar's warts out of desperation that worked in just 4 days to having no sign of it by the 5th day. My daughter had them this summer, they were very painful and with over the counter salicylic acid preparations took weeks to work.

I live on an island and could not find the medicine anywhere and I knew I wasn't going to be able to get off to get it anytime soon. So I improvised.

I noticed my daughter had some Stridex face wash pads for acne that had 5% salicylic acid. I also thought I remembered that aspirin had salicylic acid. I thought, why not hit it from inside and out? So I took 2 x 325mg aspirin tablets at night and after breakfast. On my foot each night before bed and again when I got up; the first two days I folded up the Stridex pad, put a band-aid over it and held it on with adhesive tape. This was kind of messy and wasn't helping the pain. So my husband suggested I get Dr. Scholl's Corn Cushions and put them on it to ease the pressure. I did that, and for some strange reason I don't really know, I decided to put Vicks VapoRub in the hole of the corn pad & then covered it up with the band-aid and also adhesive tape. I continued to clean it with the acne pad and take the aspirin each time I changed it at night & in the morning.

I also boosted my vitamin C intake. I don't know if this may have also been a factor or not.

Monday, I was walking in pain. Saturday there is NO sign of it. Not a mark! it is totally gone.

I wish I had thought of this this summer when my daughter was suffering so long from it. Those preparations were not cheap and slow to act by themselves.

I had a wart on my finger for a year and the dr. froze it, and the second year the dr. froze it twice in a day, still have the same wart will try some home remidies.
