February 2003 - News from SulfurSoap.com

It's February, and let's make time to share and do another newsletter!

Like the song goes, " ... all right people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together and try to love one another right now ..." And so we do, and this month, we love one another by sharing what we learn about plantar warts.

You know, last month we did a piece on locker rooms and all the skin care problems you can contract when walking barefoot in public places. Here's last month's newsletter link if you'd like to see.plantar wart on foot

Anyway, this month we are going to focus again on the subject of plantar warts. Lots of people don't know what they are. Then they start getting plantar warts without knowing that they need to do something about it, and then it gets real bad, and can get difficult to treat. So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say. Our suggestion, by the way, is to wash your feet with sulfur soap everyday, as an ounce of prevention. That's our sales pitch for this newsletter!

So if you have plantar warts, you can see your doctor and ask him or her for advice, and what you read on our website too.

Study Finds Duct Tape Successful in Treating Warts

We all know that a little duct tape can fix almost anything, but get rid of warts?

A study, appearing in the journal Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, has found that treating common warts by applying duct tape was more successful than cryotherapy – freezing them off with liquid nitrogen – a more common technique. The study looked at more than 50 patients ages 3 to 22.

Researchers say using duct tape has several advantages over cryotherapy, such as being more practical, less expensive and less threatening to children because it is not painful.

Warts are a common pediatric complaint, occurring in 5 to 10 percent of all pediatric patients, according to the study. Warts are benign growths caused by the human papillomaviruses. The peak incidence is between the ages of 12 and 16 years. Although two-thirds of all warts in children will resolve spontaneously without treatment within two years, patients frequently request treatment to hasten the resolution.

It is fascinating learning from others however. And we have learned that others use duct tape successfully to rid themselves of warts and plantars. They are placing duct tape on their wart and covering it everday day and night, until it goes away. And some are using sulfur soap to wash with everyday and let the sulfur soap suds just soak in! Great idea!

Promotion ! We're offering a box of 12 medicated pads of Compound W® wart remover, and three bars of our original 10% sulfur soap, at a special price of only $14.95, including FREE SHIPPING ! Click here for more information.

You see, the sulfur soap cleans, and the sulfur is keratolytic which means it helps the top dermal layers peel. The sulfur is inherently anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, too! Great combination. Chemists and doctors call that synergistic!

We have assembled links of those people who talk about using duct tape to get rid of warts.
