Home remedies for warts are not dangerous, though they are not likely to help treat the condition, says WebMD. People try different remedies including garlic, vitamin C tablets and duct tape, but some fail to manage the condition.
If home remedies fail to work, patients can try over-the-counter medications or seek medical attention, says WebMD. The use of duct tape seems to be a popular home remedy for common warts, but there is no evidence to support its use. Salicylic acid is a common over-the-counter remedy that has a success rate of about 50 percent over six weeks or so. Using medical options, such as liquid nitrogen, laser and immune system stimulants, help clear warts easily.
