Q. You sometimes get questions about how to get rid of warts. I’ve had horses all my life, and warts on a horse’s muzzle are common. I’ve always rubbed the milk from a bleeding milkweed plant on them. It takes only a few times.
Most horsemen know of this fix even if it is restricted to summer. It also worked on my daughter when she got warts on her hands and knees.
A. Topical application of milkweed juice is a time-honored wart remedy. Many others have also reported success with this native plant.
