Warts. Nasty things. When they grow and start to go crusty they start to itch (particularly if when located amongst the moister recesses of ones anatomy). Itching inevitably leads to scratching, ergo bleeding soon follows. Highly unpleasant, and if in sight – unsightly.

So what does the medical profession recommend we treat these evils of epidermis with?

Duct tape.

Yes, the sticky backed masking tape you are likely to stick just about anywhere – except on a duct. The true talents of this unassuming household item are not fully appreciated – until one discovers a nasty manky wart festering on ones skin that needs dealing with.

Why am I telling you this? Well I’ll let you draw your own conclusions there.
