Warts are a common occurrence, especially in children. They are a result of viral infection within the layers of skin and tend to appear on the hands and feet. In many instances small warts tend to disappear on their own, succumbing to the bodies immune system. But in some instances, warts can hang around and continue to grow over time. If hooked or accidentally cut they can be painful or prone to spreading. Having some wart removal home remedies on hand can save on discomfort and unnecessary doctors visits.
Wart Removal Home Remedies
There are several wart removal home remedies that are said to be successful. As always, when it comes to natural remedies or simple substitutes, funding for research is not usually readily available so research is limited. This does not mean these remedies are necessarily less effective but it is important to always use remedies that are confirmed to be safe and consult your doctor if you are unsure.
The effectiveness and speed of results of wart removal remedies varies massively and will depend on a number of factors. The age and willingness of the child to cooperate is often a deciding factor on the remedy choice, along with the location, age, size and type of wart. Using natural foods and household items like banana skins, potatoes, duct tape, orange peels and apple cider vinegar for removing warts gives varying results depending on the situation.
