If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy, and thus cannot feel pain in the area you are treating, it is a bad idea to try and treat it yourself. Otherwise you should be fine!

I have a stubborn wart on my index finger. Normally I'd treat it with one of those salicylic acid dots or the liquid form, but they say not to use them if you are diabetic. I don't have insurance right now, so seeing a dermatologist to have it frozen off isn't an option. I've seen the freeze option available as a home use now, but was hesitant if it was worth the money. anyone have any methods of getting rid of these that are safe for diabetics? also, why is the salicylic acid harmful to diabetics? as far as I know, it's the only ingredient in the concoction.
I had wards on my index finger about two years ago. I had them for five years and could not get rid of them. I worked at a health food store and tried everything. I started taking this green tea white tea and they started drying up and going away. They are gone now. It is New Chapter green tea white tea. I started ordering it from Vita Cost because it was cheaper. It is a pill and they are great!!!!

I believe the warning is basically a CYA message from the manufacturer.
If someone cannot feel an extremity AND does not inspect that extremity on a regular basis , they wouldn't know they had warts. Besides there is NO excuse for not inspecting ones fingers occasionally. :-)

I've seen the salicylic acid work as well as the freezing method, I've heard about the duct tape working but have never actually seen it. Also, there is the tagamet/ibuprofen treatment and most recently I've put together a combination SA/5-fluorouracil/DDG/levamisol that covers all bases.
I wouldn't be worried about using any of these methods provided it wasn't on my feet so with it on the index finder I'd say "pick your poison" and get on with it.
