OK, now I've got your attention :lol: poor DD, 5, picked up a verrucca when she went on a swimming course at our local baths :x Unbeknown to me :evil: hubby tried to remove it using one of those freeze dangerous chemical things which didn't work. I wasn't keen on it at all anyway as I'd read somewhere that it's better for the child to build up immunity against the virus, but I was also concerned as it could damage the foot etc!!
I've since read about rubbing banana skins on to it and wondered if anyone had tried this? If so, did it work? Do I use the inside presumably?! :lol:
Is there anything else that anyone can recommend please?
I'd be very grateful for any tips to get rid of this yucky thing.

I don't know about the banana thing either, but I too used the Bazuka thingy mentioned above on dd's foot and it worked.

Then I bought some swim socks!

Herman has obviously spent too much time watching re runs of Dr Quinn Medicine Woman.
There is also the problem of werewolves.

My DS had a wart for ages on his finger ( slightly different ,I know ) and I did eventually resort to giving a brisk rub with a banana skin. It disappeared the next week...but perhaps that was more to my rough rubbing. :oops:

Banana skins work, apparently. I heard something on the radio about verrucas and also polishing shoes. Really not so sure about the raw bacon though :D

Thanks Sally-Anne, Yoyo,LFH and Scarlett. :)

Scarlett what exactly did you do with the banana skin? :lol: Presumably you use the inside? Do you rub it on? Leave it on overnight under a plaster? Force feed them the banana? :lol:

LFH where does shoe polish come in to it? :oops:
