Wart Removal - Wart Treatment - Wart Cures

by Bob Bowman

Some other wart remedies include these:

  • Take an equal amount of brown soap and spit, mix the two together, and make a plaster. Apply it on the warts and leave it 24 hours. When removed, the warts and roots will come off.
  • Make the wart bleed. Put one drop of blood on seven grains of corn. Feed the corn to an old black hen.
  • Tie a human hair around the wart and leave it in place for several days. Remove the hair and place it in a nail hole in a green tree. Replace the nail, driving it into the hair so it will be stuck in the tree. When the hair rots, the wart will disappear.
  • Put a drop of milkweed juice on a wart or rub a piece of wild turnip on the wart several times.
  • Gather the roots of pokeweed. Fry them in hot grease. Apply the grease to the wart. After four or five applications, the wart should come off.
  • Rub an old bone on the wart and throw it over your shoulder.
  • Sit in a cemetery for three nights in a row. Then find a fresh grave and put flowers on it while wishing that your warts will disappear. Two weeks later, they will.
  • Karla Shearer of Houston told us this story: "I had a Cajun friend from Fannett, Texas, who told me the best way to cure warts was to 'buy them off someone.' She said she'd had warts as a child and her aunt asked her if she could 'buy them warts.' My friend said the aunt gave her a quarter for the warts and they were gone in a week." Karla later tried to buy warts off her daughter, but it did not work. She said she probably jinxed the cure by first telling her daughter of the story.
