My daughter had one on her foot, we tried several things to get rid of it but what ended up doing the trick is useing one of those banaid type things to remove it, at first it wasnt working becuase it was comming off and i guess letting the wart breath or what ever they do. So i cut one of the banaid thing a little smaller then the wart and put it on with duct tape. Left it on their for a week (changeing it every 2 day) After the week was over it looked deak and cracked (and would bleed if she hit it on something. It totaly disapeared after about 2 weeks from the date we took the tape off.

Having burned myself accidently with a soldering iron on several occassions, I can say that you'll get a faint odor of something that smells kinda like grilled steak. Then you'll go through a few hours that are relatively pain-free. Later, the burn site will start screaming, and it won't be much fun. Enjoy the experience.

BTW, most irons are around 650-700F (I've got 600F and 700F tips for my Metcal; the latter I only use for lead-free work or when I need to solder a joint that's maybe a bit too large for the selected tip size).

um, not too sure about how safe this alternative is either, but you *can* use a bottle of freon turned upside down in liquid form to freeze it off with greater strength than the otc freeze-off stuff.

You may need some help for that though.

This has the potential for a full-thickness burn. I wouldn't do it.

See a doc.
