I have one cure for warts, however, that I have found infallible. This remedy is the juice of the ordinary dandelion. All you have to do is to gather either a flower or leaf of the dandelion and squeeze the stem. A drop of milky juice will appear, touch the wart with that and leave it to dry on.
Repeat as often as is convenient. The wart will turn black, and after a little time will drop off leaving perfectly dear skim.
The woolly lining of the pods of broad beans may be used to rub the wart also, and often effects a cure, but the dandelion is far and away the best of all such remedies.
However, the juice of apples, white cabbage, chickweed, the elderberry, fresh figs, pineapple, and watercress, can be used in the same way. In every case the wart must be robbed lightly with the freshly-cut fruit or leaf, and the juice left to dry on.
All these recipes are quite harmless and will do good; though some of them will take longer than others.
