Hi MoMs, hoping some other mums can help. My daughter has a couple of warts on the bottom of her foot that are ‘sore’ she says. They are quite flat which makes me think they might be the ingrown type. Is there something from the chemist I can use, an old wives tale that works or should I just go straight for the doc? What is the best treatment for warts? Thanks for helping

  • Chemist is good! There really interesting comments on this!


  • At the chemist a wart remover can be purchased. Does work, freezes them off.


  • The best tried and true method is they have to spit on them with their own saliva every morning before eating or drinking. It is the acid in the saliva which kills the virus and wart.


  • wartner works a treat


  • How did you go ? Hope you found something that worked.


  • There is some sort of clear liquid you can get that eventually makes the warts drop off.


  • When we were little my dad had a great idea and worked every time. We had a bowl of methylated spirits and soaked the wart in there for 5-10 minutes and then covered it up (air tight) for a week. Opened it up after that and picked at it with a tooth pick and resoaked it for 5-10 minutes in methylated spirits and again covered it up (air tight) for anther week and when we opened it up and picked at it again it was gone and it worked for us every time.


  • That would hurt. The chemist have some cream that can help with warts.
