Remove Warts Naturally

remove warts

Warts are unsightly changes to the skin caused by the human papiloma virus (HPV), which consists of over 100 different types. Each type of HPV affects everyone differently, depending on the strength of the immune system. The type of virus that causes warts is relatively harmless, while other types of HPV can trigger serious diseases.

Caused by a virus, warts can easily spread to different areas of the body and can also spread to others through skin-to-skin contact. There are currently many conventional remedies to remove warts, but they’re not always 100% effective and may not work for everyone. If you’re one of those who hasn’t been able to remove warts using conventional methods, you might want to check out the following home remedies. They’re very economical, easy to apply and, if applied frequently, can offer excellent results in eliminating warts.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is one of the most used home remedies in the world thanks to its medicinal properties. This product, in addition to costing very little, has a powerful effect on unsightly warts. However, vinegar does not kill the virus that causes warts; its acidity attacks the fleshy part that the wart is composed of.

You’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • Cotton balls or a cotton cloth

What do I do?

Wet the cotton with vinegar and apply directly to the wart. Cover with a strip of gauze and let work overnight. The following morning, remove the gauze and repeat the remedy every night for the best results (between one to two weeks).

Banana Peels
