    hello Elizabeth,

    i wasn’t sure how to contact/email you, but i was actually writing to ask about the “Removing Plantar Warts with Salicylic Acid and Apple Cider Vinegar” post (http://www.effortlesseating.com/2009/12/removing-plantar-warts-with-salicylic-acid-and-apple-cider-vinegar/) you did about our friend Pete and his plantar wart treatment.

    specifically, i was wondering if he:

    (1) kept the duct tape on his foot when taking showers;

    (2) used a pumice stone or file on the dead skin & dried up salicylic acid before applying the acid, vinigar, and the duct tape;

    and (3) if the wart just came out as a clump in the end, as some of the other readers/commenters mentioned?

    it would be a big help if i heard back because i think i’ve been carrying around a very small planta wart just over 2 years now. luckily, it hasn’t done any harm/damage, but it would be great to get rid of it for good. (mine is centered in some dry skin, flat, and looks like a pin-head blood-scab on my heel; when it gets caught on really scratchy carpet/surfaces, it bleeds profusely– the reason why i think it might be a plantar wart.)
