You may look at yourself in the mirror and see those small brown or black dots on your face, neck, chest and even in other parts of your body. You may think that those are moles, but no, those may be warts!
A wart is a relatively small growth of the skin that is caused by a virus known as Human Papillomavirus or HPV. It causes the upper layer of the skin to grow rapidly forming dark colored dots that may appear on most of your body parts. The different types of human papillomavirus cause different forms or warts. Common warts are contagious. They could spread through direct contact with a person who has them or by touching the things that have been used by an infected person.
Some forms of warts are harmless, but some may also lead to serious illnesses. One example is genital warts that can lead to cervical cancer. Common warts may heal by themselves, but it takes a long time. It may take years. That is why most people who are infected by warts resort to natural wart removal.
Here are some of the natural ways to remove warts:
BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Warts are most likely to show up when you are tired or sick. The virus tends to attack the body when your immune system is down. So it is recommended for you to leverage your immune system. Eat healthy food, regularly exercise, and get enough rest. You can also take immune boosters like vitamin C.
WASH YOUR HANDS
If you think that you touch a part of your body that is infected with warts, wash your hands immediately. Sanitation will prevent the spread of the virus not only around your body but also to other people.
Garlic has antiviral viral properties that will help get rid of the virus causing warts. Mix a minced clove of garlic in water. Apply it on the area that has warts and cover it with a bandage. Do this everyday.
Extract the gel from a mature aloe vera leaf and apply it on the affected area. It will help burn away the affected tissue because of the malic acid content of an aloe vera plant.
BASIL AND BAKING POWDER
Mix some fresh basil leaves with a spoonful of baking powder and then add oil to form a paste. Apply it directly to your warts and put a
bandage on. It would be best to do it at night before you go to bed. Do it every night until warts die.
