Using Tape to Remove Warts
Tape occlusion is an inexpensive method of wart removal that involves covering the wart with tape. It is often called the "duct tape" method.
Using duct tape for warts is probably safe. But if your skin is very thin or fragile, be very careful when removing the tape.
If you're not sure whether a skin growth is a wart, it's best to see a health professional.
