Duct Tape vs. Warts?

Finally, a problem that duct tape apparently can not fix. Have you heard the folk remedy that you can use duct tape to get rid of warts?

Now, Danish researchers have test that theory on more than 100 kids age four to 12 and they've decided that's baloney, which probably works just as well.

Instead, they found the duct tape can trigger redness and itching on top of the wart that will likely stay there until it leaves in its own time.

Bottom line, researchers advise against using duct tape on warts. The study is published in the Archives of Pediatrics.
