Though warts are often not harmful for health, they are obviously one of the most unwanted, unpleasant and even embarrassing condition. The conventional treatment for them include burning, freezing or cutting those affected areas from the skin, but even those treatments do not guarantee great results.Luckily there are several home remedies that are easy to use and can prove to be very effective. Following is a brief rundown on them.
Natural Treatments For Warts
Applying castor oil is also a very effective natural way to remove warts. When you apply this oil, you should massage or rub the warts and surrounding areas with your fingers. Do it several times a day. If you are using this remedy consistently, the warts should start diminishing in appearance over the course of a few weeks. For faster results, you should cover the warts with a bandage soaked in castor oil. Keep replacing it with fresh bandage several times a day. The warts will start disappearing much faster this way.
Essential Lemon Oil
Another popular home remedy to remove warts is by putting essential lemon oil directly on the affected area.
Just a single drop is enough, but you should do it several times a day, such as once every hour. Keep repeating this process for a number of weeks until the warts disappear.
Tea Tree Oil
When it comes to removing warts using natural remedies, tea tree oil can also prove to be very effective. It is a powerful natural antiseptic that kills all those elements that help warts to stay on your skin. You can apply it directly on the warts. This method is believed to be more effective than others. Even if you are applying the coating of tea tree oil on the warts for just three to four times every day, the warts should disappear within three to four weeks.
Apply a clean cotton ball soaked in aloe gel directly on the warts. Place this cotton ball for around 15-20 minutes. For much better results, you should soak the cotton ball in aloe gel for longer than a minute and tape it on the warts. The gel dries up in a few hours; so, keep adding more drops of gel on the cotton ball tape again and again.
The method is very simple. All you have to do is just to cover the warts thoroughly with a piece of duct tape. The piece should be as long as is necessary to cover the warts. Leave this tape on for a week. After a week, soak the duct tape with water and then scrub it gently with a pumice stone. The warts should come off along with the tape. If it doesn’t, you should repeat the process for one or two more weeks.
Baking Soda And Vinegar
Baking soda and vinegar can also prove to be a wonderful home remedy for warts. Prepare a thick paste by mixing baking soda with water. Apply a coating of this paste on the warts. Then, apply a few drops of vinegar on it.
Keep repeating this process once in the morning and once in the evening for 5-6 weeks or longer until the wart falls off. For much faster and more effective results, you can also consider covering this coating of baking soda paste and vinegar with a thin bandage.
When it comes to removing warts using natural remedies, the healing power of garlic can also prove to be very useful. Grind a clove of garlic and then scrub it on the warts gently. Cover it with a thin bandage. Do it every night right before you are going to bed. In addition to that, apply a coating of garlic juice on the affected area at least 2-3 times during the day. This remedy, when used consistently, should eliminate warts within just two to three weeks.
Apple Cider Vinegar
High-quality organic apple cider vinegar also contains powerful ingredients that can remove warts naturally. Soak a cotton ball in it and apply it thoroughly on the warts.
Do it consistently every twelve hours. You can accelerate the healing process by covering the application of apple cider vinegar with a bandage.
Squeeze the milk out by cutting a stem of dandelion. Applying this milk on the affected area for 2-3 times daily will make the warts weaker and weaker. If you are consistent with this remedy, the warts should fall off within five to six weeks. You are advised to store sufficient amount dandelion milk in a closed container in advance in order to ensure continual treatment without any interruption.
Applying a piece of fresh pineapple on the warts for 3-4 times daily has also been found to be very effective in removing warts.
Squeeze the juice out of grapefruits. Apply this juice directly on the warts. Use a very small amount of it, as much as is necessary to cover the warts only. Repeat this process for 2-4 times every day. For better results, the warts should be covered using a bandage. If you are consistent with this remedy, you will see successful results within 1-3 weeks.
