Clearing A Plantar Wart using Garlic & BF&C
Use a petal of garlic fastened over the wart for several day to a week as needed. When applying the garlic over the wart use a little Vaseline around the edge to protect the healthy skin.
When the garlic has cleared the virus (6-10 days) begin using a BF&C pack made with the BF&C Salve spread on a double layer of Flannel. Place this over the affected area until the issue has cleared.
One member shared how she cleared a very painful wart. She used the garlic until the skin around the wart had become a bit sore. She then switched to the BF&C Paste and continued until one afternoon her foot developed an itch. She reached for a straight edge ruler laying nearby to relieve the itch. Rubbing the ruler roughly along the bottom of her foot the thick skin that had developed around the wart fell off exposing the new healthy skin beneath.
She has had no more issues with Plantar Warts
What is a Plantar Wart?
A plantar wart is a wart caused by the human papillomavirus occurring on the sole or toes of the foot. Plantar warts are usually self-limiting, but treatment is generally recommended to lessen symptoms (which may include pain), decrease duration, and reduce transmission.
Plantar warts are almost unknown in habitually barefoot cultures and people, this is because walking barefoot for extended periods of time strengthens the skin and keeps it dry and uncompromised as well as wearing off the virus through friction on the soles of the feet, preventing infection. While infection occurs in an estimated 7–10% of the US population, plantar warts tend to affect only 0.29% of people who have never worn shoes.
