    had them for a few years. Not the large lumpy type but sort of hard lumps of skin that get caught on everything, one is rather like a scratch on the side of my hand 3/4 inch long.

    Any ideas what to do? I’d like to get rid as they look pretty gnarly!

    I had them for years from my teens into my twenties. A few people reckoned I got them off cattle as they have them on their skin. New skin painted on will kill them in time. Bactikill will do them too but I’ve used it but not recommending you do that though

    I had them for years aswell, was convinced that they were popping up after mig welding splatter burns. Then as mentioned one week they all went away. I tried everything to get rid, the only method that was actually working was freezing them off with liquid nitrogen. Unfortunately the nurse would only do a max of two per hand at a time. After they were frozen a blood blister would form underneath them and it would drop off in about a week. Then another would pop up somewhere else to take its place. I’m convinced half of it is psychological aswell as they seem to pop up when you’re a bit down or tired or overworked ect.

    Be careful if you use caustic soda pellets; you don’t realise how far down the stuff can go. All healed up, but 25 yrs on and I think I’m going to be paying for that with an arthritic joint!

    Got rid of the wart though(y).

    All good stuff chaps. Looks like a silver nitrate stick is the jobbie (y)

    Or maybe the red hot stick-out of the mig Lance after a good run? :nailbiting:

    Exactly the same here with same results.

    Bloody painful though after about 8 hours.

    Try using clear nail varnish as recommended by my local pharmacist. Did the trick for me in a few weeks!

    They are weird things, I had the same experience as others in that I had them for years, tried the nitrogen freezing, and one would go only to be replaced by others, and then all of a sudden they all went.

    Don’t think I’d manage to keep it on. How does it work?

    Think it starves them. Daughter was at primary school and she had quite a few on her fingers...I taped them up and If I recall correctly they took a couple of weeks to go. She did get quite a few comments from parents, teachers and other children..especially as she was a flute player which showed her multi coloured fingers off all the more, but certainly looked better than the warts and it definitely killed them off.

    Had one on my hand, got rid of it by dabbing vinegar on it every evening it sort of dried up & was gone in a week, (vinegar cures lots of things), but make sure you wash your hands BEFORE!! going for a wee afterwards!!!

    Yes, vinegar is very good. My Mum used to boil it and once cooled bathed her fingers in it to get rid of orf.

    I had a pal who had been in the RAF and invalided out with a faulty heart . He told me he was in the sick bay for tests on his heart functions , and was attended by a rather small built swarthy Welsh doctor . After the examination , the doc said " I see you have a lot of warts on your hands , have you had them long ? ". All my life says he . He said the doctor took his hands in his own , and looked him in the eye very mysteriously and said " Your warts will go , airman ! . A short time afterwards they just went ! He absolutely assured me of the truth of this , and said he'd heard of "celtic wart charmers" but didn't believe the stories until then .
