I am 43 years old, and have been bothered by warts and skin tags for many years. The warts keep appearing on my fingers and on the soles of my feet, and the skin tags in armpits and other places. They used to appear over a couple of weeks, stay for a year or so, and eventually disappear especially when I treated them with a commercial wart medicine or by taping on some banana peel overnight. I recently discovered a new wart remedy that is amazing. It works within days or weeks and seems to be permanent. The remedy is iodine plus garlic. I chop a tiny piece of garlic, about a quarter teaspoon, and then mash it in the spoon with a few drops of Lugol s iodine. A friend told me that povidone iodine will also work in this case, even though povidone is an inferior product with contaminant chemicals. Anyway, I paint the iodine-garlic paste on the warts twice a day. That is it! Within days there is a big difference. After the wart disappears, I usually keep applying for another few days.

For years, I would have a couple of cysts on my skin which would last for a year or more. Sometimes I would lance them with a sterilised needle, and then they would heal and go. They were the size of large pimples. I bought some Lugol's iodine and painted the cysts using a cotton tip, and also painted parts of my skin with the Lugol's to get my body's iodine sufficiency back to a healthy level. The cysts started drying in a few days and had disappeared in a couple of months.

I had a skin tag on my penis. It appeared over just a couple of weeks, and was about the size of a pin head. I tried putting a tiny drop of Lugol's on it once a day. After a few days the skin dried up and came off, but a new tag kept appearing underneath.

I had an unsightly skin tag on my arm. It had some feeling in it so I wasn't willing to cut it off, and risk infection too. So I wet it with Lugol's iodine twice a day, using a cotton bud. Needed to cover it with a band aid to keep the iodine on and stop it permanently staining my clothes. In less than a week it dried up, and fell off with a gentle pull. No mark remains. Thanks!!
