Dermatologist would be the preferred route, but if you insist on home treatment try the duck tape route again. However, this time cut away the top layer of the wart as much as you can. You should be able to get it flush with the skin. Getting to the fresh part underneath may help a bit.

I'll vouch for the effectiveness. Haven't seen any ***-warts at all!

Yeah, two days should be ample time to grow another foot if your surgery goes awry. I don't get why you don't use the standard procedure of gouging it out with the corner of a razor blade then tweezing out those black root things that grow in there.

I had a few of those a while back. Wash it good, let it dry, then get a good hemostat and start pulling.

Ripped mine off, hurt like hell but if you get all of it out it wont come back. Comes out in formed pieces.

+1 on an Xacto. Thats what i used on mine, I just cut the ****er out. Its "roots" ran DEEP. I had a hole in my foot that was easily 1/4" deep afterwards. Once that happened, I hit it with the freeze away stuff, then filled the ****er with compound W.

It hasnt come back since

edit: on a scale of 1-10 the pain level was probably a 6 or so. Stuff like that doesnt bother me though, its the constant stinging pain of walking on it all day that finally pissed me off enough to remove it myself.

I got one on my big toe one time. It got caught on something (because it had already started to pull loose) ripped out, hurt like hell and bled like a son of a bitch. I hope I never get another...

Ive tried just digging these things out before with razor blades but they just come back. Thats why I want to make sure I kill it. I figure a soldering iron will work well since burns continue to penetrate and burn even after the source of heat is removed.
