There are many natural treatments that can be used to get rid of warts. While treating them with chemical based creams and treatments is an option, doing so naturally can be just as effective as well.
Earlier, we have enumerated several methods on how to get rid of warts the natural way. Here are some other natural methods as well.
Cantharidin is a poisonous chemical compound secreted by the male blister beetle or the Spanish fly. Take note though, that as little as 10 mg of cantharidin is potentially fatal, so extra care is needed to prevent ingestion of the substance. When diluted, however, it is highly effective in removing warts because it is a powerful blistering agent that literally ‘burns’ the wart out.
Generally, there will be no pain or discomfort during the time of the cantharidin’s application. However, three to eight hours later, once the wart starts blistering, some discomfort or pain will be felt. After applying cantharidin to the wart, cover it with bandaid or a bandage and remove it after 24 hours.
Treatment may not be 100% successful during the first time, so re-application may be necessary in order to banish the wart completely.
Echinacea is a well-known herbal remedy that is extracted from the purple cone flower indigenous to North America. It has been used for many centuries as treatment to a wide range of medical complaints due to its general medicinal qualities. It has the ability to boost the strength of the immune system and to help ward off viral infections.
While it is primarily viewed as treatment to winter conditions like colds and flu, it is also a natural antibiotic that is effective in treating infections and fighting off bacteria. It is known to boost the immune system which will help the body get rid of warts naturally.
The freezing of warts is generally considered to be one of the most effective natural wart treatments. However, it is quite costly compared to the other natural methods.
The process also involves the use of liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart, including the skin around it. The application of liquid nitrogen using a spray or a cotton swab is relatively fast and easy, but it can be quite a painful way of having your warts removed. This is why cryotherapy is usually administered by a healthcare professional and a local anesthetic is used. The pain from cryotherapy can also last up to three days, and several treatments may need to be done to eradicate the wart completely.
Although cryotherapy is an effective method to get rid of warts the natural way, it is no more effective than the other natural methods previously enumerated, such as the use of banana skins. Therefore, it would be best to make use of the other natural methods before resorting to cryotherapy.
Vitamin E Oil and Garlic
Vitamin E is generally obtained from vegetable oil and is believed to be a powerful antioxidant and helps get rid of warts. It also helps promote skin regeneration, which makes it highly effective in preventing a scar after a wart has been removed.
Additionally, garlic is believed to boost the immune system, making your body far more resistant to warts. Combining both natural methods is a highly effective method in getting rid of warts naturally.
Because everyone is different, it is quite difficult to know which of these natural treatment methods will be most effective for you. It would be better to try the easiest method first. While this can be dealt with medically, getting rid of warts within the comfort of your own home is preferable to seeking medical attention. This is why getting rid of warts the natural way is a much better approach, and a far safer one.
