is duct tape the next breakthrough medicine?
Posted October 15, 2002 - 02:09 AM
i heard on the radio this morning (b94, pittsburgh area) that the U.S. ARMY has released that none other than DUCT TAPE is effective in curing (<> removing???) warts. more effective than freezing them off it says. i know a wart is caused by a virus, and just takes time to cure (2 yrs. i believe and it will go away on it's own without treatment)
could duct tape be the ultimate anti-virus? the cure for the common cold??!?!?!
anyways, just thought that was interesting.

although i imagine that if a protective "diaper" were properly constructed of duct tape prior to riding, it could prevent the rubbing/chafing effect and eliminate monkey butt altogether. ... just a thought...
maybe you were jsut applying it at the wrong time.
or maybe chain lube or wd-40 could help reduce the burn...
*akward silence... cricket chirps*
don't look at me like that:mad:, it was just an idea... lol

For the really good duct tape, go to a military surplus place for their 100mph tape. I understand they use it to temporarily patch bullet holes in aircraft. I have a large roll and it IS tough and is a proper tough-guy olive drab in color.

Seriously, I have had a wart on my finger for several years. They do not go away on their own! The liquid nitrogen hurts bad! I am starting the duct tape thing as of wed. I will let you know how it works..
