In this article we will present you a couple of folk remedies that can help you remove warts in a natural way. Warts are actually infectious changes that appear on the exposed parts of the body and their most common cause is the virus group known as papilloma viruses.
This virus is usually transmitted through direct, and rarely through indirect contact with objects or auto-inoculation (an occurrence when the wart virus infects the surrounding healthy skin from the same person). The incubation time of this virus is between one and eighteen months.
Warts are hard, semi-circular, lentil-sized, peas-sized, or beans-sized nodules. At first, they have the same color as the skin, but then, hyperkeratosis happens and they become yellow-grey.
Warts have ragged, unsymmetrical surface. They might occur in groups (up to ten or more) or single.
Normally, new warts (warts satellite) occur around an existing one which is always bigger than the plantar warts.
Warts most frequently occur on the dorsum of the hands and fingers, most commonly among children and young people. Warts can appear under the fingernails of children who nibble nails, and they are then called subungual warts. This type of warts is harder to treat, and it can lead to permanent nail loss.
Often times, warts and their changes disappear spontaneously. But, whether they have spontaneously disappeared or they have been removed, they can recur.
Luckily, there are some homemade folk remedies you can use to remove warts naturally:
- 3.3 oz (100 ml) of apple cider vinegar
- rind of two lemons
How to make:
Cut the lemon rind
Mix both ingredients together and put the mixture on a glass container. Close the container and let it stand for a week.
How to use:
Apply the mixture onto the warts several times a day. A few days later, the warts will start drying out and fall away.
For preparing this recipe, you are going to need:
- cotton and bandage or a plaster
- two eggs, fresh
How to make:
Turn the oven previously on to 480 F (250 degrees) and bake the egg shells for about half an hour on a baking paper.
After the shells become cold, cut them, crush them, or (recommended) grind them into powder.
Make sure that the powder from the eggs shells remains dry. It is recommended that you keep it in a glass container, closed with a lid.
How to use:
Put a greater amount of the powder on the wart, apply a piece of cotton on top of it and fix it using a plaster.
