Warts are one of the most common skin problems that can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most commonly found on the hands and feet. They are usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection, and are in most cases, non-cancerous. There are many different kinds of warts. The most common include common warts, flat warts, and plantar warts. In most cases, warts tend to disappear within a period of 6 months to 2 years. But if you follow some remedies than you can get rid of them sooner. Here are some natural home remedies.
Castor Oil: Castor oil is a very good natural cure for warts. Before going to bed, soak a cotton ball in castor oil and tape it over your wart. In the morning, clean the wart and soak it in warm water for a few minutes. Repeat this remedy for a few days.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is another effective home remedy. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and place it directly on the warts. Cover with a bandage and wait for about half an hour. After some time, replace the bandage and the cotton swab. Repeat the process thrice every day for a week or so to get rid of the warts.
Baking Soda: Baking soda contains antiviral properties that would help treat the warts. Take 1 teaspoon of baking soda mix in 3 teaspoons of water and 1/4 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Mix well and make a paste. Apply this paste on the warts. Cover the warts with a bandage and wait for about an hour or so. Replace the bandage with a new one afterwards. Follow this remedy thrice a day for a week or so.
Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that can be very effective in treating warts. Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf. Soak a cotton ball in the gel and apply it directly on the warts. Then use a bandage or tape to hold the cotton ball over the wart. Replace the swab after some time. Repeat this process twice a day for a week or so to get rid of the warts.
