Q. I had plantar warts on the bottoms of my feet for close to five years. It got to the point where I didn’t wear flip flops or anything that showed my feet, which was hard because I’m a surfer and a skateboarder.
I tried everything including duct tape. My dermatologist applied liquid nitrogen to freeze them off and eventually used a blister treatment to try to lift them off. Nothing worked!
Then one day the doctor decided to prescribe an experimental treatment called Tagamet. It took this heartburn medicine about two months to work completely, but my warts finally went away. I have to say this treatment is NOT experimental. It really works.
A. Although scientific studies have produced mixed results when it comes to Tagamet (cimetidine) against warts, we have heard from many others who believe this oral heartburn drug really works. Many have tried every home remedy and dermatologist-prescribed treatment in the book, only to find that Tagamet was the final answer.
