To get rid of a wart, cover the affected area with the silver duct tape and leave it in place for one week. After removing the tape, soak the wart in water, and use a pumice stone or emery board to get rid of the dead skin. Wait one day, reapply the silver duct tape, and repeat the process until the wart is gone. —John Donahue, PA-C, Fayetteville, Ga.
