Q. I’ve had a plantar wart on the sole of my foot that is painful indeed. I am an RN, so I had one of the orthopedic docs look at it. Here is his suggestion: Eat a banana and cut a piece of the peel the size of the wart. Place it against the wart, inside of peel to skin. He said the greener bananas work a little better than the ripe.
I taped the peel on my foot and changed it twice a day. I wore it through the night as well.
Bananas work slowly. I was skeptical, but in about three weeks that wart disappeared and has never returned.
A. Thanks for your testimonial. We have heard from other people who have had success with this banana peel remedy for warts.
