Home remedies for treating warts

Warts are raised growth on the surface of the skin or other organ. It is a non-cancerous skin growth caused by the HPV virus.

There are four main types of these growths caused by a virus:
1) Plantar warts (on the soles of the feet)
2) Hand warts
3) Genital warts
4) Flat warts (which can appear anywhere)

They are contagious and capricious. Sometimes warts disappear on their own and sometimes they make an encore appearance. Dermatologists burn them off with lasers or freeze them off with a nitrogen solution.

Here are some home remedies for warts:

1. Apply vitamin E oil to the surrounding skin, then crush a clove of raw garlic, place it on the wart, and cover it with an adhesive bandage. The raw garlic causes a blister to form, and the wart generally falls off within a week. Apply vitamin E oil to the area to help it heal.

2. Chop one raw onion in a dish, cover with salt and leave overnight. Apply the resulting juice to the warts twice a day, until they disappear.

3. Cut fresh pineapple into thin slices. Apply to warts several times a day until they are gone.

4. Apply the milky juice exuding from the stems of figs and leaves.

Note: It is always best to consult a dermatologist for treatment as soon as you see warts because they can spread.
