Well I had a funny history with warts, so I feel like I'd share:
I had a viral/fungal (doctors weren't even sure) wart before, and one that grows on the side of your nails (apparently the hardest). It started with my big toe when I unconciously cut the side of my big toe with a nipper and a wart started to grow. After around a year or so of not knowing, and constantly scratching and peeling it off, it went on to grow to the finger beside my big toe, as well as my thumb and index finger on my hand since I usually pinched it off.
I tried alot of treatments from cauterizations to laser removal to duofilms and the freaking expensive aldara cream (100++ pesos per small package that you can only use ONCE per night). Here's my suggestion based on my experience:
- Never opt for cauterization especially for a peri-fungal wart (one that grows under and beside your nails). It just made the wart spread over the new wound.
- Never opt for any laser treatment either. Waste of time and money, the wart just came back.
- My brother even had surgery, the surgery ended up gaping a new hole on my brother's big toe where the wart just grew over the new wound. (FYI, Warts LOVE open wounds.)
- Always apply merthiolet (the pink antiseptic they put in parlors, not sure of spelling), any antibiotics or clean any wounds/cuts you make when you trim your nails.
- Leaving banana peels over the wart infected area seems to work. I read it off the internet and let my brother try it, he said it helped to some extent.
- Salicylic acid (Duofilm) is effective.
- My brother is currently taking anti-ulcer drugs. Apparently the same drug boosts your immune system in hopes that it recognizes the wart and fends it off itself.
- I had warts over fingernail areas on 5 different fingers/toes. NONE OF SURGICAL PROCEDURES WORKED. You just let your own body learn to fight it off.
*of course, this only applies to warts that grows beside your fingernails, since they are the trickiest to deal with.
