The warts usually develop on the hands and feet, but can occur anywhere in the body and are usually contagious, so you must be careful rubbing or scratching them and then touching other parts of the body.

Remember, warts are contagious, so removing them can prevent the virus from spreading to your loved ones.

While surgical removal or cryogenic removal are preferred by doctors, you can get rid of warts using everyday ingredients from your kitchen . Here are the top 10 home remedies to remove warts.

Home remedies for warts

You can achieve very good results in the elimination of warts by following some of these tips, but one of the most effective is to avoid contact with the air, so simply by covering the warts, they will fall off by themselves.

1. Banana peel:

Rub the wart with a banana peel every day . You can also place the skin directly on the wart and hold it in place with an adhesive bandage. This home remedy can take weeks, so be patient. However, it is the best remedy to get rid of warts without going to a doctor.

2. Apple cider vinegar:

The acidic content of apple cider vinegar is what kills warts. Dip a cotton ball in vinegar and hold it in place with an adhesive bandage. Keep it overnight and discard the cotton. Do this every night and you will see results about a week later.

3. Baking soda:

Dissolve some baking soda in water, and then soak the affected hand or foot in the solution for about 30 minutes. Do not clean your hand or foot. Instead, let it air dry. Repeat this home remedy until the wart is gone.

4. Aloe Vera Juice:

Consume aloe vera juice to strengthen your immune system, and to be able to fight the virus that causes warts . You can also apply the juice directly to the warts, if you want. However, if you are using aloe vera topically, try to get the actual gel from the leaves. This is one of the most effective home remedies to remove warts .

5. Castor oil:

Rub the affected part of your body with castor oil daily. This will take a couple of weeks to a month to work, but you will be able to get rid of warts safely, and if you combine it with the application of duct tape on the wart you will have a greater effect.

6. Insulating tape:

Even doctors recommend this home therapy to get rid of warts. Put a piece of duct tape over the wart and let it stay there until it falls off on its own. Then rub the affected area with a pumice stone to remove the last remnants of the warts.

7. Raw potatoes:

Take a peeled slice of raw sweet potato and rub it hard on the warts . Do this a few times each day and you will see your warts getting smaller and smaller in a couple of weeks.

8. Ajo:

Peel and crush some garlic cloves and rub them on the affected part of the body with warts. You can also consume it orally to get results. Of course, be prepared to smell like Italian cuisine, but it will be worth it. In a couple of weeks, you will see the results. If you don’t want to smell like garlic, eat some parsley leaves, which will help freshen your breath and remove the taste of garlic from your mouth.

9. Baking powder:

Make a paste of baking powder with a little castor oil . Apply this paste on the warts and adhere it with an adhesive bandage on them. Keep it all night. Remove the bandage the next morning and repeat the process until the warts disappear.

10. Vitamin C Tablets:

Make a paste of the vitamin C tablets with a little water. You need to crush the tablets first. Apply the paste on the wart and then use an adhesive bandage tape to cover it. The acid content of vitamin C, which is nothing more than ascorbic acid, will help kill the virus and make the wart smaller, until it falls off or disappears . Use this home remedy until you see results.
