Verruca Salt

I'm changing my name to the famous Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character, after doing battle all summer long with a plantar wart the size of Ohio. It feels like a starfish on my heel, or like I'm stepping on sharp pebbles.

I've tried plaster adhesive bandages. I would put on on overnight, and take a layer of my wart off in the morning. I also saw a dermatologist who told me about a specialty pharmacist who makes Magic Wart Cream. I put some on Verruca, and it's supposed to make the wart blister. So far, it's not gone.

By the way, if you want to see something a YouTube search for plantar wart surgery. Enjoy!

I had the same thing and had it removed by a podiatrist back when I was about 12, or so. It never returned. The worst part was the shot to numb my foot. But how awesome to be rid of the pain!
