The duct tape totally works! My son got a wart on his index finger last summer, and I was planning on taking him to have it frozen off. Not only is that expensive, it's painful too, so I asked my dad for advice. He said that there are three "s" words you need to remember with warts: Soak, Scrape, Smother. Soak the finger, wait until the wart is white and soft. Scrape off the dead part, and then Smother it with duct tape. Leave the tape on as long as you can, and then repeat the process. It totally works. If you can't do the soaking and scraping, the duct tape alone will do the trick, it just may take a little longer. The wart virus will die if it can't "breathe". Good luck!!!
