Retinol for warts (?!)

Well, this is interesting:

A very small (n=1) study looked at topical application of retinol (literally from a Vitamin A capsule of 25,000 IU) applied daily to warts on the patient’s hand, and found 100% improvement in 6 months. Yes, that is a long time for daily application of an oil, but for a fairly non-irritating, non-scarring solution that is cheap.

Will report back, though I may mix Vitamin A and my topical retinol for the face.
