Do warts come from handling toads? Frogs? Nope, that’s just an old wives tale, a colorful one to be sure. But no matter where warts come from, the thing is, nobody wants them. They are unsightly and can be worrisome, even though they are rarely pre-cancerous. People with warts are always looking for ways to remove warts, because it seems that once a person is prone to warts, they seem to get them time and again and have to remove them repeatedly.
So here are some easy ways to remove warts that can be stubbornly hanging on. One of these remedies to remove warts is probably around the house, and others can be purchased for very little money.
Here are some powerful home remedies.
Tea tree oil, found in any health food store, is a natural anti-bacterial and the application of a few drops to the affected area will remove warts within just a few applications. This is inexplicable since experts believe that warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and therefore shouldn’t respond to an antibacterial remedy. But anecdotal evidence is still evidence and people who use this remedy to remove warts swear by it.
Another and much simpler remedy, though it may be a little unsightly, is a tiny square of duct tape. Duct tape, the great American fix-it-all, can not only repair old Chevy engines and holes in fences, but warts as well. A tiny square taped to the area and left there until the wart disappears is another therapy to remove warts that will affect a cure within five to six days. The tape will soften the wart and when the tape is removed, the wart will come with it.
For those with a bad wart.
If you are serious about removing your warts, I highly recommend you check out the book “Moles, Warts, and Skin Tag Removal”. Not a very unique name, but definitely delivers! Check out my full personal review of it here:
Finally, a visit to the local or online drugstore will yield quite a few commercial products that contain ingredients which freeze or dry warts within a few days and come as a kit with not only the serum, but adhesive pads and complete instructions on how to remove warts. These products are relatively inexpensive but quite effective in achieving results.
