Warts. Especially, warts on hands can be extremely embarrassing. Many people suffer from warts on hands and other various parts of the body, such as the face, or feet.
The trouble with warts, is sometimes they will disappear on their own accord in a couple of weeks, other times they can take up to 2 years or more to go.
There are many good products to get rid of warts on hands on the market. But here I am going to discuss several options.
What are Warts?
Warts are skin growths caused by viruses. These viruses infect the top layer of the skin, causing it to grow exceptionally fast. You can also catch this virus if you cut or damage your skin, or if you share towel or razor with someone who has it.
Right, now we know what they are and what causes them, let’s go through some possible natural cures.
- You can help the process by boosting your immune system. Warts often show up when you are feeling tired, sick or down. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and exercise. Boost your Vitamin C levels and use some tried and tested immune boosters like, olive leaf, zinc, turmeric astragalus and elderberry.
- How to stop the spread. Don’t touch your wart and then touch other parts of your body before washing your hands.. This can spread the virus. Don’t share a towel or face flannel with others.
- Pineapple surprise. Apply fresh pineapple to the infected area several times a day. The natural acids and enzymes will help the wart to break down and eventually go.
- Garlic. This not only works to repel vampires but also helps to get rid of warts. Mix the crushed garlic clove with water and apply the paste to the wart every few hours until it’s gone.
- Baking Powder. Mix baking powder and castor oil together to form a paste. Apply the mixture to the warts at night and cover with a bandage. Repeat daily.
- Aspirin. Crush the tablet in a little water. Apply the paste to the wart and cover with a bandage overnight. Repeat the process for several nights until the wart has gone
- Tee Tree Oil. Apply directly to the wart and cover with a bandage. Clove and frankincense oils can also be mixed with the Tee Tree oil for additional help.
- Salicylic Acid or TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) Salicylic acid is an ingredient in many over the counter wart removers. It’s effectiveness does vary and it can take weeks to work. Soak the affected skin in water for 5 minutes or more, apply the acid liberally using the brush and let it dry. Leave it for a day. You can either peel or file it off, getting rid of any dead skin. Do this every two to three days.
Not all Wart removers are the same. If you are looking for a fast acting, painless liquid that easily removes common and plantar warts caused by HPV, try the following:
