Warts are caused by an overproduction of cells produced by a virus. These are painless lesions that look like small lumps. A wart can usually give rise to satellite warts and are considered contagious.
The most effective and quick method of getting rid of warts is by surgical excision. Other methods are the application of acids that dissolve the wart or the application of other chemicals. Sometimes the wart disappears by itself, without any apparent reason.
A good natural remedy for warts is to use the juice of Figs. Extract the juice of two Figs by any method and apply it on the wart throughout the day. The barely ripe fruit usually has more juice so you should prefer this variety.
Aloe Vera And Warts
The juice of Aloe Vera should be placed on the warts, either by cutting a leaf of Aloe and applying the fresh juice or by using the commercial form of Aloe cream. Aloe has tissue repair abilities and the juice will help to erase the wart and promote healing.
The juice of raw Potatoes can also be used to treat warts. Cut a raw Potato and rub the juice on the wart several times a day. If you continue this treatment daily for about two weeks, you will soon see that the warts have disappeared.
Garlic is also a good treatment for warts. Crush a Garlic clove until it has formed a paste. Apply this paste on the warts, taking care not to touch other areas of exposed skin. There might be a slight irritation if the paste touches bare skin, especially if you have a sensitive skin.
Garlic Paste and Vitamin E
Another good home remedy involving Garlic can be made by crushing a clove of Garlic and applying the paste on the warts. You can heighten the effect by applying the contents of a Vitamin E capsule on the wart and then applying the crushed Garlic.
Onions and Warts
Onions can also be used to eradicate warts. You should chop an Onion in thin slices; place these into a cooking utensil, cover lightly with salt and leave until the following day. The liquid should then be applied to the warts several times a day until the warts are a thing of the past.
