Instant Glue Against Warts

Q. I had a wart on my right ring finger for years. Although the dermatologist had frozen it and cut it off several times, the wart still was there.

I needed nerve surgery on that finger but the wart was in the way. My hand surgeon told me to put nail polish or instant glue directly on the wart and keep it on for three weeks. That would cut off the air supply a wart needs to survive and grow.

I did that religiously. When I returned for my pre-op visit, the wart had died and popped out when hard pressure was applied. This was so simple and painless it was amazing. The glue I used caused no ill effects to the surrounding tissue on my finger and the nerve surgery proceeded.

A. You are not the first person to tell us that instant glue can be successful against warts. We’re glad this remedy worked for you.
