Home Remedies For Warts

Warts are generated by infection with a virus called the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV results in keratin, a hard protein within the top layer of your skin (the epidermis) to develop excessive. This creates the rough, hard texture of a wart.

Varieties of warts

There are some various kinds of warts. The more common types include:
common warts
plantar warts (verrucas)
plane warts
filiform warts
periungual warts 
mosaic warts
The physical appearance of each and every type of wart depends on several factors:
where it is found on your body
the strain (type) of HPV that is accountable for the wart
factors such as whether you've got a weakened immune system
whether you've rubbed or knocked the wart 

Who gets warts

Most people today will have warts at some point during their life. Nevertheless, they're more common in school children and teenagers compared to adults. Research has indicated that 4-5% of kids and adolescents in the united kingdom have warts.
Warts are unusual in babies and occur in equal numbers between males and females.
Individuals who have an increased risk of developing warts include those with weak immune systems, for instance, following treatment for cancer or due to an illness such as HIV and AIDS, and those who have had an organ transplant. Around 50% of people who have had a kidney transplant develop warts within five years.
A kind of wart which is known as the ‘butcher's wart’ can sometimes develop on the hands of people who are regularly in contact with raw meat, fish or poultry for long periods of time. However, this type of wart is rare.

Home Remedy:

Apple cider vinegar for warts:

If wart is on hand or foot, soak in warm "apple cider vinegar" for 15 minutes every day for at least 2 weeks. May take a little longer, but this does work.Make sure if it is on your face don't do it.

Banana for warts

Rub the wart with the inside of a banana skin. The inside of the banana contains potassium apparently and this will get rid of the wart.
Duct tape for warts

Another treatment that has been proven effective in a respected medical journal is duct tape, yes the silver sticky fiberous tape that you buy in the hardware store. I'm not joking, check New England Medical Journal yourself. Cut out a circle the same size as the wart, place over the wart for 3-4 days, remove for 1 day. Repeat this cycle 3-4 times, as long as it takes to remove the wart. I know it sounds crazy, the medical profession laughs about it also.


Try taping a slice of garlic to the wart. Be sure to first protect the surrounding skin with petroleum jelly. Garlic is a wonderful creation, it can so many things. So I see no reason why this should not work but remember some people get burnt skin and mark from  this.So please take care.


Using lemon everyday on warts for a while make it dead and drop off.But its not sure actually how long it takes to be effective.Advise is keep using until you see visible response.

Potato skin Wart remover

 Peel the potato to the size of the wart. Place the potato part on your wart cover with a band-aid. Change potato skin daily or as often as needed. Your wart will be gone in a week or so.... Keep potato in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Most people came back saying it worked, after one week it fell off.

Tea tree oil to get rid of warts

To get rid of warts. Use tree tea oil. This can be found in some grocery stores. Put it on three times a day and you will see results in days. I had them on my fingers. Someone told me about it and it worked great.By the way 100% tea tree oil is more effective than others but other low level does work but comes back after.

Vitamin e oil for warts

I have learned that to apply vitamin e oil every day maybe 2 times a day the wart will leave and not return. This has been tried in my home, it works. 

Wart removal with salt

Cover the wart with wet iodized table salt and let it there. Do it as many times as you can during the day and every day until it dries and fall. It worked for me with those that are rough and whitish. I had one in my hand and disappear

There are also plenty more out there which could work for you But these are the most effect found.
Please if you find it effective do leave a comment .Or anyother remedy worked for you please mention.

Hope it Helps.
