Warts are tiny, rough, irregular growth on the skin that is typically caused by family-owned (HPV) viruses.
While the infection is harmless, it is very unpleasant to deal with, because it not only causes scratching and discomfort but can also be a chronic skin-related problem to get rid of.
While these small lumps are not extremely dangerous, they can be contagious and very disappointing.
These skin bumps may occur almost anywhere your face, neck, back, arms or legs, and may occasionally affect your appearance and reduce your self-confidence.
Garlic Aloe Vera Gel
- 2-3 tablespoons of freshly scraped aloe vera gel
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- 1-2 mini band-aid (depending on the number of warts).
- Crush the cloves of garlic.
- Mix the aloe vera gel with the crushed cloves of garlic.
- Directly apply to warts.
- Protect the paste by putting in a band-aid
- Keep it on for overnight.
Loaded with malic acid, aloe vera is highly effective in the treatment of warts.
The antiviral, antibacterial, and antibiotic qualities of both aloe vera and garlic not only help to eliminate wart skin, but also to kill the bacteria that causes warts.
Apply this every day for 2-3 weeks to get rid of warts.
Castor Oil and Baking Powder
- 1-2 tbsp of baking powder
- 1-2 tsp of apple vinegar
- 1-2 drops of castor oil
- Doctor Tape
- Mix all the ingredients together in a thick paste.
- Apply the paste to warts.
- Protect it with the doctored tape to secure it in place if necessary.
- Keep it there for overnight.
The anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties of the baking powder reduce the discomfort and inflammation of the wart.
Apple cider vinegar is very rich in citric acid, it naturally dries and burns the excess grainy skin so that it falls off on its own.
The application of castor oil reduces the burning feeling afterward.
Use this paste on a regular basis before the wart falls off.
Lemon Juice and Tee Tree Oil Treatment
- 1 lemon juice
- 1-2 tsp of tea tree oil
- 1 cup of Water
- Cotton ball
- Squeeze the lemon in a cup of water.
- Next, add the tea tree oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the water.
- Dip the cotton ball in the solution and apply it directly to warts.
- If you feel the solution is too strong, add more water to dilute the solution.
Soak the cotton swab in the solution and position it over the wart.
Now, wrap it up overnight in a bandage.
Do this for a couple of days, and you’ll get rid of the wart in a couple of days.
Lemon Juice is a citric acid powerhouse with good antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
It dries the wart quickly and helps to get rid of it.
The application of tea tree oil, although it induces a bit of discomfort at first, is very effective in destroying the virus and also in providing a cooling sensation afterward.
Because it has a high acid content, this will naturally burn the wart and kill its production.
- Crush the vitamin C tablet and blend it with the water.
- Apply the paste to the wart, cover it with a bandage, and leave overnight.
- Repeat every day.
Vitamin C has immunosuppressive effects.
This vitamin is also important for the healing of wounds and healthy skin tissue.
Some people claim that lemon juice and vitamin C make the paste more effective.
This may be attributed to the acidity of the juice of the lemon.
Lemon juice can cause irritation to the skin, so use it with caution.
- A medium-sized raw potato
- Cut a small potato in half to try this process.
- Apply the cut side of the wart until it is coated with potato juice. Repeat twice a day, please.
Some say that potato juice will “dehydrate” a wart, but there is no proof of its effectiveness.
These remedies can be a little harsh on the skin, please do a patch test before applying them regularly.
