I've had a couple of warts over the years the first one was on my wrist perfectly in the middle, the only memory I have of this one is that I filed it off in wood work class, I can remember quite clearly the look of horror on the teachers face.
Then about 4 years ago after the malnutrition of university, I had another new friend on my right hand ring finger. It lived there for about four years and was even sent to the doctor by the chemist to look at, because fluid had built up inside of it.
When changing my living pattern, I decided that it was time to go and used the same piece of duct tape for about three weeks before having to change it daily for work. The wart slowly but surely began to shrink and for a time left a hole in my finger. By the time the wart had gone life had changed from living in a city famous for executing witch's, to the cool, calm safe land of Confucious.
The tape worked, i just accepted that the tape had to stay and got on with whatever had to be done. The wart soon enough disappeared, as did the memory of it until now.
p.s. warts are not virus's but little astral beings..
