Put a duct tape double the size over the verruca and leave it on..... The idea is to starve the verruca of air so that it dies.... This process should take about a month.

What You'll Need

  • Duct tape (strong waterproof sticky tape used worldwide)
  • Large non breathable plaster
  • Nail file or even better a pummel stone

What You'll Do

  • Cut out a piece of duct tape double the size of the verruca
  • Place it on top of the verruca - with a big sticky plaster over it. Leave for 4 or 5 days.
  • Take the tape off and soak the foot in warm water.
  • Very gently scrape off dead skin from your foot - using a nail file or pummel stone.
  • Let it air over night. And the repeat the whole process.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your foot gets red and irritated from the sticky tape make sure you go to see your doctor.
