How You Get Rid Of Warts

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do you naturally get rid of warts on your hands?
    Is there any ways to get rid of warts on your hands, but without using like a store bought product? Is there anything you can just do at home to get rid of them?

    • ANSWER:
      One of the most successful ways to get rid of warts is to use duct tape or any kind of medical or first aid tape if you don't have any duct tape. Cover the wart leave on around the clock for as long as it takes to get rid of the wart (it could take anywhere from a few days up to three weeks).

      A study done in 2002 at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, WA found that placing a piece of duct tape the exact size of the wart over it was successful in removing the wart 85% of the time and was better than the standard method of freezing the wart (60% successful).

      Variations of that same remedy include placing a thin slice of either onion, garlic or fig on the wart and then taping it.

  2. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of warts and how do they form?
    How do i get rid of warts without going to the doctor..And if i go over to a pharmacy and ask for something..What should i ask for?

    • ANSWER:
      Warts can form a many number of ways. Its just kind of like a fungus that is carried by air and through touch.

      I suffocated mine with apple cider vinager and a bandaid over it. After a couple weeks it went away. Also don't pick at it!!!

  4. QUESTION:
    How does a dandelion help get rid of warts?
    I've heard from several sources that the sap on the inside of a dandelion stem can get rid of warts if applied regularly. I myself have several flat warts on my legs, and was wondering if this method actually works. Has anyone tried it before and seen any results?
    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      1.Pick some dandelions just above ground level when the sun starts shining. Make certain you have plenty of stems for the wart remedy.

      2.Cut the heads off the stems with scissors and squeeze the milky liquid from the stems. This milky liquid is latex and effective in wart removal.

      3.Apply the latex to the wart and allow the area to dry. Cover the wart with an adhesive bandage. Repeat this step twice per day and cover with a fresh bandage each time.

      4.Note how each time you take off the bandage, flakes of the wart will peel away. After one week, the wart should have almost disappeared. Keep applying latex until the wart has gone completely. The wart should not return after this natural remedy.

  7. QUESTION:
    How much lemon juice and salt is used to get rid of warts?
    to get rid of warts, how much lemon juice and salt?

    • ANSWER:
      Just keep putting lemon juice on it. I've heard that alone works. Or in a little dish put a tablespoon of juice and a teaspoon of salt, mix and apply around wart and apply a bandaid over it. You could even put some on the banaid, but do this 2X a day... Even better is to get Tea Tree Oil, an d apply just to the wart with a swab 2x a day, it basically "burns" the wart out or off, and I know that works for sure.

  16. QUESTION:
    can plain vinegar work to get rid of warts?
    I heard apple and cider vinegar work to get rid of warts, but can plain vinegar still work? If you need to know, the wart is on my finger and has been there for well over a year now, and is stubborn

    • ANSWER:
      Just heard it was apple cider/cider vinegar, never heard mention of any other type, so I guess it is the apple cider one. (My gran used to swear by this vinegar for all sorts of ailments!).

      With the cider vinegar as a remedy, just soak a little cotton wool in the vinegar, place over wart and cover with a plaster. You can put some surgical tape or duct tape over the plaster to help keep it on. Do this at night, then air over the day. It may take a week or two to sort it, but it is meant to work.

      Another remedy I have heard of (and am currently trying on a wart I have) is banana peel. Rub the inside of the peel over the wart and place a plaster over it (or simply cut a bit of peel off and place over wart (inside bit to the wart) and secure it on with surgical tape). Leave overnight, gently clean it and allow to air dry the next day. Again, it may take a week or two, but it is meant to work (it is certainly doing something to my wart after 3 days, it isn't as sore to press anymore, so something good is going on!).

      Of course, either method may not work (although I have heard good things for both cider vinegar and banana peel), some warts are really stubborn and will take some beating. If worse comes to worse, then a GP may be the way to go.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best medicine you can get easily to remove the warts?
    One of my friend told me that I can get rid of warts by taking 1 cod liver oil capsule daily for 2 weeks. Is he correct?

    • ANSWER:
      Herbal Remedies for removing warts do work, but you have to know the right herbs and techniques to use.
      I don't know any that uses Cod Liver Oil, but will give you a few to try.

      Castor Oil is applied warm to a bandage and applied to the wart. Replace 3 times a day until wart dissolves. It shouldn't take more than 1 week.

      Milkweed can be used by rubbing the milk from the plant onto the wart several times a day, cover. Repeat until wart dissolves. This was popular with the Native Americans remedies.

      Dandelion milk is also said to work well.

      If you are familiar with the Crowfoot (Ranunculus bulbosus) plant, aka Buttercup plant.
      It is used as an external rubefacient, because it is very acrid. (never use internally)
      You can use the crushed leaves and or roots on the wart, and cover. change it 2 times a day, repeat until wart dissolves.

      And this last one, believe or not, does work too.
      A friend of mine used Duck Tape and taped up his wart, changed the tape only twice a day. In about two weeks the wart was dissolving. No herbs, no meds were used. Just plain ole duck tape.

  20. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of genital warts? Preferably an at home remedy?
    I was wondering how to get rid of genital warts without going to the doctor. have heard milkweed works. Is thia true? Has anyone ever tried it? Any other at home remedies? Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't use any "at home remedies". It's much easier to just them treated by a doctor.

      Every person is different. What works well for others, may not work well for you. There are several different ways a person can get rid of them.

      A doctor can prescribe a cream that the person can use at their convenience and at their home. Aldara cream and Condylox cream are available with a prescription.

      If these creams don't work or the doctor doesn't want to try them, the doctor might suggest applying medication at the office. This is done by the doctor, is done in several visits and can be pretty expensive. Some of the medications that can be used include: Podophyllin resin (Podofin), Intralesional (injected into wart lesion) interferon, Fluorouracil (Efudex, Fluoroplex), and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or bichloroacetic acid (BCA).

      A person can also have surgery to remove genital warts by freezing (cryosurgery), burning (electrocautery), or laser treatment. Surgery is occasionally used to remove large warts that have not responded to other treatment.

      Although treatments can get rid of the warts, they do not get rid of HPV, so warts can recur after treatment. The body's immune system typically clears the virus anywhere from 8 to 13 months, but it occasionally remains in the body for a lifetime.

      DUCT TAPE FOR WART REMOVAL

      A study by Dr. Dean Focht, reported in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (http://archpedi.ama-assn.org), found duct tape to be more effective than treatment with cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen used to freeze warts).

      Dr. Anthony J. Mancini, pediatric dermatologist at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago uses duct-tape therapy for warts. In an interview with the American Academy of Dermatology consumer magazine, "Dermatology Insights," duct tape treatment was discussed by Dr. Mancini (www.aad.org):

      WHY DUCT TAPE

      Two theories were proposed as to why duct tape works:

      1. Debrides (removes dead skin) from the wart, thereby gradually eliminating the wart virus that resides in the skin.

      2. Occluding the wart with duct tape somehow gets the patient's immune system activated to attack the wart virus.

      DUCT TAPE TREATMENT PROCESS

      There are various ways to use duct tape on warts:

      1. Patients apply the duct tape to the wart, keep it in place for six or so days, then remove it, soak the wart, and pare it down with a filing (emery) board.

      2. Apply over-the-counter salicylic acid wart remover liquid to the wart before bedtime. After letting it air dry for a minute or so, apply the duct tape over the wart, completely covering the area. Remove the duct tape the following morning. Each time they remove the tape, they are debriding some of the wart tissue. Repeat the application each night, until there is no remaining wart tissue.

      DOWNSIDES TO USING DUCT TAPE

      1. The skin can become very macerated (red and soggy) under the duct tape. If this happens, then take a few nights to one week off of the treatment to let the area breathe and dry out, and then resume therapy.

      As Dr. Mancini points out, duct tape treatment is a gradual process that takes time and commitment on the part of the patient. For more information see www.aad.org

  24. QUESTION:
    How do you remove warts from kids?
    My 4 year old has a wart right on his finger that's pretty unsightly and its already interfering with how he holds a pencil.

    Are there any home or over the counter remedies to get rid of warts on kids, that actually work. I wanted to try other methods before I take him in to get it frozen off - I doubt he'll think that's so great.

    • ANSWER:
      I had a wart for a long time when i was a kid. Finally my mom bought some compound w and i put it on every night the key is to put duck tape on it. I repeated this process every night and it went away. I guess a band aid would work just as well.... But i think the duct tape has more of a grab to take off layer by layer

  25. QUESTION:
    How can you get rid of warts?
    How can you get rid of warts

    • ANSWER:
      . You shouldn't treat warts on your face without talking to your doctor first. The following are some ways to remove warts from the skin:
      Applying salicylic acid--You can treat warts on places such as the hands, feet or knees by putting salicylic acid (one brand name: Compound W) on the warts. To get good results, you must apply the acid every day for many weeks. After you take a bath or shower, pat your skin dry lightly with a towel. Then put salicylic acid on your warts. The acid sinks in deeper and works better when it is applied to damp skin. Before you take a shower or a bath the next day, use an emery board or pumice stone to file away the dead surface of the warts.
      Duct tape treatment-- Covering a wart with duct tape may also help because it irritates the wart and the skin around it, causing the body to attack it. Cover the wart with duct tape for up to a week. Then remove the tape, soak the wart in water and rub it gently with an emery board or a pumice stone. Leave the tape off overnight, then repeat treatment until the wart goes away. If this is not successful after 2 months, see your doctor to try another approach.
      Applying cantharidin--Your doctor may use cantharidin on your warts. With this treatment, the doctor "paints" the chemical onto the wart. Most people don't feel any pain when the chemical is applied to the wart. You'll experience some pain and blistering of the wart in about 3 to 8 hours. After treatment with cantharidin, a bandage is put over the wart. The bandage can be removed after 24 hours. When mixtures of cantharidin and other chemicals are used, the bandage is removed after 2 hours. When you see your doctor again, he or she will remove the dead skin of the wart. If the wart isn't gone after one treatment, your doctor may suggest another treatment.
      Applying liquid nitrogen--Your doctor may use liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart. This treatment is called cryotherapy. Applying liquid nitrogen to the wart causes a little discomfort. To completely remove a wart, liquid nitrogen treatments may be needed every 1 to 3 weeks for a total of 2 to 4 times. If no improvement is noted, your doctor may recommend another type of treatment.
      Other treatments for warts on the skin--Your doctor can also remove warts on the skin by burning the wart, cutting out the wart or removing the wart with a laser. These treatments are stronger, but they may leave a scar. Ask your doctor about risks and benefits before you decide what kind of treatment to have for your warts.

  31. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a wart fast?
    How do you get rid of a wart (mine is on my knee) quickly (and preferably painlessly) other than freezing them off?
    Other than store bought wart remover?

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to get rid of warts forever then you should know that you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea.)

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you should use some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=221781

      The advantage of Wartrol over other natural treatments for warts is that, since it is taken orally, it can also act on invisible warts that can't be treated by other creams and natural remedies.

      good luck!

  34. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of big warts on an elbow that won't go away?
    My husband has these two warts on his elbow that keep reappearing. He has used the Dr Scholl's treatments (the liquid, the medicated discs, the freezing solution) and they worked once, where the whole wart came off (it kind of had a cone shape to the end to it). But now they are back and won't budge.

    He's gone to the doctor's and had them freeze it a few times. It did nothing. He's told to come back every two weeks to refreeze it. It's such a hassle! Is there anything that can be done at home to get rid of pestering warts?
    If you read on, it says that we have already tried store treatments and seeing a doctor. Lighter idea is interesting!

    • ANSWER:
      Plantar warts are viruses. But I know you know that by now. Thing about warts, like any virus is that they have the ability to survive many assaults, including freezing.

      Unfortunately, the freezing method is probably best, but like any wart, salicytic acid (basically aspirin or wart remover medications) will work too. Warts also need oxygen to survive. So here is my recommendation. (by the way, it worked on the 20 or so warts my nephew had on his feet too).

      1. Continue freezing as needed.
      2. Add the wart remover medication to the site afterward.
      3. Cover with Duck Tape.

      Now I know that sounds crazy, but it has been proven that duck tape will kill warts. The secret is...that you can't remove the tape but once a week or so. (or if it happens to fall off, then immediately replace). But the duck tape on...and shower with it...keep it on no matter how ridiculous it seems. Then after a week, pull off and replace again. Repeat this process until the wart and the ugly white spot it leaves are gone. After about 3 weeks it will be gone. Probably before.

      Just remember viruses are strong. You just have to be stronger.
      By the way, many doctors advocate duck tape too. Just usually you do it to the feet. Should go faster on the elbow. The skin is thick...so it takes more effort than the fingers lets say.

      Good luck and let me know how it goes.

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you must use herbal treatment because you can not always live 100% healthy...!!!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked very fast and still works for me because I do not have wart outbreaks anymore!

  36. QUESTION:
    Whats the best way to get rid of genital warts?
    I tried to use tea tree oil but it made these weird white scales come up and they fell off. It didn't hurt or bleed or any thing and the skin under the scales actually looked better/healthier than before. The tea tree oil does burn kind of. The warts are smaller but did not go away. Is this normal and should I keep doing this? And are there any other tips to get rid of these warts and stop them from coming back?

    • ANSWER:
      You cannot stop them from coming back. The virus is always in your body once you have it. There are various prescription medications that can help. Read here.

      http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/genital-warts/DS00087/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs

      Do not use over the counter wart treatments on genital warts. They can cause serious burns. You can use comfort treatments for at home.

      Take sitz baths. Fill a tub with a few inches of warm water and sit in it for 10 or 15 minutes every day.

      Squeeze warm water from a bottle over your genital area to provide comfort and cleansing.

      Use a heat lamp or a hair dryer several times a day to dry your genital area. Make sure to hold the lamp or dryer at least 18 inches from your skin.

      Many people treat warts with apple cider vinegar, by applying it at night before bed and washing it off in the morning. However, be aware that it can cause a burning sensation so be prepared for that if you try it. This treatment would need to be continued over time. Other home remedies that people have had some degree of success with include castor oil treatments and the homeopathic treatment called Wartrol.

  37. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of oral warts?
    Is there anything I can do at home to get rid of oral warts, and what do doctors do to treat oral warts? I need help ASAP

    • ANSWER:
      The warts themselves will clear in time but you will always carry the virus That causes them. (HPV)
      Generally they are cauterized or frozen or dissolved with acid. You need to make sure they are warts first. Herpes and warts are often mistaken for one another. Now that you have these if you are a man you need to make sure that you have a rectal examine every few years because these warts have been linked to prostate and rectal cancer. They are easily treated as warts when they are caught in time. The treatment is the same as oral treatment.

  38. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of plantar warts?
    other than freezing, what is the best way to get rid of plantar warts (they are different than regular warts). i would prefer someone with a personal experience and an idea of how log it would take.

    • ANSWER:
      I had practically my whole left foot covered with that crap.
      The dermotologist had me going in for treatments every week.
      My wife (at the time) insisted that I get the treatments because she was grossed out.
      Basically the dude charged me 200 bucks a visit to try to freeze the suckers off. I think you can buy the stuff at a good pharmacy.
      He also suggested that i try light sandpaper, and putting vaseline in a sock and sleeping with it.
      That stuff seemed to reduce but not eliminated the problem.

  39. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of my wart without any doctor's help?
    I want to get rid of my wart on the top of my toe. What do i do?

    • ANSWER:
      the best product that i would reccomend is freeze away. I have tried pretty much every product on the market and this one gave me the best results. Dont waste your time with the other products. It basically freezes the warts and cuts off blood supply to the wart.
      However, if this doesn't work than i wouldnt recommend going to a doctor who will freeze it with liquid nitrogen.
      If THAT doesn't work, than do what i am doing. Go to a laser clinic where they can laser it right off. Lasering BY FAR gives the best results

  40. QUESTION:
    How to remove warts on your feet?
    Any ideas on some home remeides that can be used to get rid of warts, someone said by using nail ploish, just wondering if that will do the trick or are there any other ones out there. No funny answers please. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a simple procedure (home remedy) that many people have used to remove warts (including Plantar warts on the feet) in one week:

      Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid. Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week.

      The wart will swell and throb a little as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black (usually with a white ring around it) within the first two days and after a week or two will fall off by itself.

      Check the reference below for many recent testimonials.

    • ANSWER:
      I read once that you could get more warts if you are low in Vitamin E and that you could try taking vitamin E by mouth and rub the oil on the wart. Also rubbing castor oil on warts I read is good.

  42. QUESTION:
    What are the health benefits of apple cider vinegar tablets?
    I have been taking apple cider vinegar tablets in pill form, i've been told they boost immune system, get rid of warts and make your hair grow faster, as well as being an appetite suppressant. Is any of this true? I have noticed my hair is softer and my skin is looking better since I started taking them.

    • ANSWER:
      Some people swear by it. Most of the people I polled said that it does nothing BUT they were all low carbers AND didn't include honey (not as a sweetener but for the gluconic acid). I have been making Kombucha tea since January (I don't know about health claims yet but I feel it doing something) and it's basically acetic acid & gluconic acid the same make up of apple cider vinegar and honey.

      One lady said her mother in law was literally transformed in 30 days - lost weight, hair grew, she looked 20 years younger. I tried adding it to my diet but I hit overload with the Kombucha tea already in my diet. I sure don't recommend mixing the two.

      Dr.Jarvis folk remedy included 2 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar & 2 tsp. raw honey with lunch & dinner.
      ================================================
      I would highly suggest kombucha tea. It uses real sugar but the yeasts and bacteria transform the sugar and tea into beneficial acids (acetic and gluconic and glucoronic precursors). I have been drinking it and brewing it since January - it's just sugar sweetened tea that is converted with a "SCOBY" so it only costs a few cents to make. I started it for the health benefits (can't really attest to any at this point) but continue it for the "soda pop" like taste and naturally occurring carbonation. I am highly sensitive to sugar (I get bacterial infections) and caffeine but I can drink a couple of liters of this a day with no problems. (I do brew it to the sugar free stage to make sure though) It's all rather weird and scary but you might want to stop by a health food store and sample GT's Kombucha tea (do not try Carpe Diem brand, it is nasty). It's not cheap at bottle but you can brew it cheap yourself if you like it.
      =============================================
      from site below -
      Acetic acid is found in vinegar. Yes, what you use on salads and vegetables. Touted in folk remedies, vinegar actually does have some benefits. Through the ages, vinegar has been used to increase appetite, offset fatigue and boost mineral absorption. Vinegar increases the absorption of calcium and, in animal studies, vinegar has been shown to augment glycogen formation--therein lies "offsets fatigue." Vinegar may help prevent fatigue by improving the body's ability to load carbohydrates into muscles (rather than allowing the carbs to flow into fat-storing pathways, which contributes to a lack of energy and vitality).

    • ANSWER:

    What gets rid of genital warts?
    I need to know what gets rid of genital warts, i do not want to go the the doctors as it is extremely embarassing, i just need a cream or something that will clear them up that means i dont have to show the doctor. Thanks! (bloody ex...)

    • ANSWER:
      The kind of medication you need to get rid of genital warts is not available over-the-counter. You can call your doc and have him or her prescribe Condylox or Aldara, which you can use to treat yourself at home. It would save you a little bit of embarrassment that way. Don't use regular wart treatment, you can do yourself a bit of damage. Take care...

  46. QUESTION:
    What is the best and least painful way to remove warts?
    I want to get rid of 10 warts, 8 of which are right by each other/ on top of each other on my thumb, one on my pinky, and one on my other thumb. I'm terrified of the pain of removing them.

    What is the pest way?
    I also hate needles!

    • ANSWER:
      If you want remove them yourself, you can get over-the-counter stuff called FreezeAway, its a little cotton tip that gets filled with liquid nitrogen (same stuff they use in a doctors office) and you touch the tops on the warts and they turn white and in a few days fall off. You are basically freezing them off.

      If you don't want to do it yourself, go to a dermatologist, and they will use the same method, freezing them off.

      Either way, it doesn't really hurt (a shot is worse). You just hear a hissing sound cause the liquid nitrogen is freezing your wart.

    I've been reading about different ways to get rid of them, like covering with glue, nail polish, or duct tape, (Which doesn't seem that appealing.) and other treatments like various OTC medications, going to the doctor, or even apple cider.

      There are over the counter creams for this. Get one.

    Please any information will help.

    Thank you in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      be very very very careful when using vinegar becuse it can damage skin very badly! even leave a scars!!

      if you really want to get rid of warts forever then you should know that you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies.

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=221781

      The advantage of Wartrol over other natural treatments for warts is that, since it is taken orally, it can also act on invisible warts that can't be treated by other creams and natural remedies.

      good luck!

      For a plantar wart.. I would get some wart stuff from CVS or Walgreens...
      I would use that for 2-3 months... and in addition keep duct tape on it.
      Plantar warts are very painful, especailly when you walk.. TRY IT IN HEELS>> thats murder!
