How Can I Cure Warts?
Warts are unsightly, festered looking bumps that typically appear on the hands. However, because they are highly contagious, they can spread to other parts of the body as well. There are over ten different varieties of warts that are easily transmitted through skin-to-skin contact or by touching a contaminated surface. When you hear the word warts, the first thought that often comes to mind is ugly witches and bubbling cauldrons. Warts occur when a person has encountered the human papillomavirus, or HPV. Fortunately, you do not have to feel “witchy” if you are covered in warts because there are many natural treatments to help clear your skin up.
When you first notice a raised, rough, flesh colored bump on your hands and fingers, do not just assume that it is a wart. You must identify that it is a wart before trying to treat the problem. Once you have determined that it is a wart, you can try to wait for it to heal on its own. Warts do eventually go away on their own, but it can take a long time and can also come back again. If you are an adult, it can take longer for your warts to heal than they do with children.
Rather than wait it out, your doctor can freeze the wart off which is considered a natural form of treatment. There are also natural topical creams that can clear the wart up within a matter of days rather than waiting weeks for it to go away. Do not touch or itch the warts. Make sure you keep your hands washed and any surfaces that you touch disinfected to prevent the spread of warts to other parts of your body. Some people have reported that you can wrap pieces of tape snugly around a wart for a few weeks to coax it to clear up faster.
Look in your cabinets and fridge for natural healing remedies such as apple cider vinegar and banana peels. If you put banana peels over the warts, the potassium in the peels helps to diminish their appearance and discomfort within a week. It has also been said that mixing apple cider vinegar with Vaseline and cover the wart with a cotton ball secured with medical tape will help the wart scab over and fall off. This could also take up to a week or longer depending on the severity of the wart, or warts, that you have.
