Warts are small, rough tumors frequently presented on the hands and feet, but can actually occur anywhere on the body. They are caused by the human papillomavirus and can be very persistent, lasting sometimes for years, and are contagious upon contact.
Here’s a list of some of the more common and effective natural wart remedies, going to the doctor always in these cases can be expensive, painful, and ineffective.
- Banana peels
Rub the affected area with a banana peel daily for several weeks.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply to the wart, cover with duct tape or medical tape and leave on overnight to irritate the skin surrounding the wart, since apple cider vinegar is very acidic.
Rub cut raw white potatoes on the warts several times a day for a couple of weeks.
- Castor Oil
Rub castor oil on warts every day for several months
- Aloe Vera
Taken internally, aloe juice can improve the activity of the immune system, helping the body fight off the virus that causes warts. You can also apply the juice directly from the leaves of the plant to the wart as an effective treatment.
