Lithuanian Verruca Cure: unbelievable!

20140424-183805.jpg

So if you don’t like pictures of people’s feet or warts or verrucas…

Look away now!

This is not a post for the faint-hearted but it may well be useful for the afflicted.

I’m not a filthy person. But I’ve noticed that people don’t talk about warts much.

If you mention a verruca there’s an exodus from the pool faster than the Jaws movie cleared the water!

Okay….

Set aside your disgust.

This is meant to help people, okay?

Here’s the back story. (C’mon there’s always a back story.)

I’ve had a verruca for about five years. They’re persistent little b#%$$*rs.

And me? I am too!

You name it, I’ve tried it!

There’s significant shelf space of stuff to tackle these things in the pharmacy.

Now I’m not saying those potions, creams, patches, gases and plasters don’t work.

They just didn’t work for me!

In fact the last thing, I tried the creature spread and before I knew it there was another right next to it.

I thought about having a naming ceremony.

Let’s just call it Gilbert.

In spite of every treatment Gilbert grew.

I’ve even used sandpaper, duct tape and blades!

We go back to last spring.

So my niece comes to visit with her dad and his wife. We’re walking to the shops and my sister-in-law stops by the side of the road.

She tells the niece to take her shoe off?

Weird, eh?

Next thing I know she’s breaking a weed from the ground and putting the bright yellow sap on the child’s foot.

Anyhow put it this way,

I was stupid.

I didn’t try the remedy myself. Then it was winter. Plants die in winter.

Meanwhile the clever husband, who also had a verruca, had tried the treatment.

He suddenly realised his Gilbert had vanished!

It was gone!

Well and truly disappeared. AWOL!

We’ve been working with it for about a month and the results are really bizarre. Gilbert is well in his way out.

I wanted to wait for complete clearance but then folks might have to wait to try it. I promise to update as soon as he is no longer with us. But get started now. No time to waste.

Meanwhile I have looked it up. In books and on the internet.
Greater Cellandine has long been used for this type of thing.

Good, eh?

Oh sorry.

Now for the grisly picture!

First the book.

Then three shots of my foot. The top one is now. The bottom right is the oldest picture.

Please don’t cross the street when you see me. Remember Gilbert’s gone!

Here’s a brief update about a month later. It’s really gone!
