    wart fall off. No more wart. great idea. ;^D

    Naw. I had a wart taken off by cautery. The smell was nauseating. The
    resulting crater ached for several days. Wart returned quickly. I went back,
    saw a different Dr., and he used liquid nitrogen. The next day a 3/8" diameter
    volcano of red skin had arisen, with the wart on top of it. After mebbe a week
    the wart fell out. Three months after that the wart was back. By then I was
    stationed in Vietnam. The Dr. there used the old fashioned acid cure, and while
    applying the stuff daily fell to me, was quite messy, and took over a week to
    act, it did the trick. Thirty-six years have elapsed and that nasty little
    sucker hasn't returned.

    Burning off warts is vastly inferior to liquid nitrogen.

    freezing warts works, but it hurts. place a piece of duct-tape over the
    wart, wait a few days, peel it off and voila!

  10. Just tell them to go. In a few weeks they'll be gone.

    But the tingling pain is what makes it fun...sort of like interrogating some
    terrorist like Jack Bauer would do. The 25V at 21KHz squarewave output would
    need to be upped a bit though...

    In a kind of a sadomazohistic way? I wonder what stuff you keep
    in your bedroom; tweezers, pliers... :)

    Nah. I'd only do this kind of stuff in extreme circumstances (like
    a painful plantar wart). The thing that made the pain acceptable was
    the knowledge that I was pulling the bad part of the wart out by the

    It has never come back. :)
