Are there home remedies for warts?

Warts are stubborn and difficult to eliminate, but some people have found home remedies that helped them. The most common treatment, of course, is to keep your wart covered in duct tape. This “suffocates” the bump, shrinking it, and also help you avoid spreading it around. Over-the-counter wart removers may have more success. These mild acids can be a liquid you apply directly to the growth, or a bandage you place over it. Some people have even combined these over-the-counter methods with duct tape.

All of these home remedies tend to have mixed results. Some people who use them religiously may find it does shrink the warty growth. Others, however, may find they do very little for the bump. The best thing to do is to discuss your wart care with experts, like our team at Podiatry Associates, P.C. We’ll help you plan out the best treatments for warts on your feet or toes.
