Everyone would like to find an effective home remedy for warts. One of the biggest mistakes we see in treatment is trying home remedies for warts. 

Many people spend months trying a home remedy for warts like bleach, apple cider vinegar, nail polish, tea tree oil, garlic, etc. Unfortunately, these home remedies rarely work. Some of them, like bleach and nail polish, are dangerous and can damage your skin. While you are wasting your time trying them, the warts may become irritated, and can spread. It is important to start effective treatment immediately. You need to use a safe and effective treatment, not home remedies for warts that won’t help.

A wart occurs when areas of the skin grow faster than normal. What causes warts is a virus known as human papilloma virus (HPV). There are more than 60 types of the HPV virus.

There is no cure for the HPV virus. Most people will naturally fight off the virus from their body within 2-3 years of infection. However, for many people, the virus can linger years longer. You can also be re-infected at any time.

There are many different treatments for wart removal. The problem is that in most cases, the warts will return. The key to removing warts is to use a treatment that helps build up your immune system so that the warts will not return.

For wart treatment, have been recommending a product for several years. It will produce noticeable results in as little as 12 hours, and helps to build up your immune system to reduce the chance of the warts returning. For more information on the best wart cure, follow this link to H-Warts.

Now that we have discussed why you shouldn’t use a home remedy for warts, we will go over warts in more detail.

What do warts look like

Most types of warts are skin-colored and rough to the touch. They can grow almost anywhere on the body, but are most common on the hands, fingers, face and feet. A wart's appearance can vary depending upon its location, and which of the HPV viruses caused it.

Who gets warts

Anyone can get warts. Warts are contagious and children seem to be most susceptible to them. Warts can be passed by direct contact, or indirectly when both people are in contact with the same surface, such as the floor or a table. An infected person can also transmit it to other spots on their body.

Several of the home remedies for warts will cause the warts to bleed, which makes them more contagious.

Types of warts

The most often seen types of warts are:

Common warts - have well-defined borders and a rough surface. They can be either round or irregular in shape. They usually range from 2 - 10 millimeters wide. Common skin warts are either yellow, light gray, brown or gray-black, and are firm to the touch. They normally appear on the back of your hands, or near the fingernails. They are also found on the elbows and knees. Common skin warts usually are not painful.

Plantar warts - appear on the soles (bottom) of the feet. The pressure of walking or standing on them flattens them. They can be dotted with very small, clotted blood vessels that look like dark pinpoint spots. Plantar warts usually are painful, particularly when they are on a weight bearing part of your feet. Using a home remedy for warts on the feet is not recommended.

Genital warts - appear on and close to the genitals. They can also appear inside the vagina and on the cervix. Using a home remedy for warts in the genital area can be extremely dangerous.

Now that we have gone over the wart information, we will discuss the best wart treatment. As we have said, there is no home remedy for warts that is effective and safe.

Wart removal

Using home remedies for warts is not recommended. The traditional wart removal techniques include freezing them, cutting them or burning them off. However these treatments are very expensive, and can lead to permanent scarring or disfigurement. Also, there is no guarantee the warts just won’t grow back.

There is a much safer and more effective wart treatment. This treatment not only eliminates current warts, but also helps to prevent future outbreaks. For more information on permanent wart removal, follow this link to H-Warts.
