Ok, here's your remedy. You need fig trees. Sorry. In the spring, when the figs are not ripe, break one off. There will be a white latex dripping. Apply to warts.

Sinus infections would include mostly runny nose (lots of blowing nose). Should one keep blowing their nose, or let it run? Also it includes waking up with a clogged/stuffed nose. What would help this or cure this?

Works for me all the time: warm water and about a teaspoon of cayenne pepper -- gargle with it every 15 minutes or so for a couple hours. It almost always clears my sore throat up before the two hours is up.
