There are so many medicines available for the removal of warts and yet many are scared to use them. It does not help that these OTC medicines caution the use on facial warts. Banana peel for warts is one home treatment remedy that has been practiced for a long time. It involves the use of unripe bananas which practitioners claim work effectively. The question many ask is, does it really work?
To answer that question, there is another home remedy that works just as well: apple cider treatment. And yes, they do both work, quite well in fact. They are effective and the most inexpensive wart removal treatment therapy that many resort to especially when it involves warts on the face and on the lips.
Banana peel for warts involves the use of unripe bananas which had been peeled and cut into a size and thinness that could cover the wart. The banana peel is held in place using a bandaid or a hypoallergenic tape. The only time the peel is removed is when bathing, after which a fresh piece should be used.
After a few days of continuous use, the wart should be washed with soap and water and filed down using a pumice stone. This should remove the dead and encrusted upper layer of the wart. Immediately, place another piece of banana peel and tape into place. The whole process may take several weeks to three to four months, depending on the size and severity of the wart, much like the time frame involved using the more expensive OTC medicines.
The best thing about the banana peel for warts treatment is that it does not cause any burning sensations which could also warn the individual that there may be a scar developing after the treatment. Other treatments just as effective are pineapple peel applied directly on the wart and lemon and unripe papaya juice.
