Learn how to treat a wart, and ways to prevent the spread of new warts. Before, that let us understand what are warts? And what are the different types of warts?
What are warts?
Warts, also known as verruca vulgaris, are small, painless skin growths that are harmless (non-cancerous). The Human Papilloma Virus causes them (HPV). Although warts are a harmless skin ailment, they can have a detrimental psychological impact on sufferers, leading to decreased self-esteem and confidence.
What are the different types of warts?
There are several types of warts, depending on factors such as the HPV that causes them and where they have grown on the body. Some of them are as follows:
- Common Wart: These are the most common kind of warts, as the names imply. They might be as small as a pinhead or as big as a pea. Warts on the hands and feet, especially in the area around the nails, are common. Common warts are frequently accompanied by small black dot-like formations, which are blood clots.
- Plantar Warts: These warts grow on the soles of the feet. Plantar warts grow into your skin rather than out of it, unlike other warts. If you discover a little hole at the bottom of your foot surrounded by firm skin, you probably have a plantar wart.
- Genital Warts: These warts form around your genital area, as the name implies. They are usually transmitted through unprotected intercourse. Warts on the genital area can grow singly or in clusters. These warts can be very uncomfortable.
- Filiform Warts: Filiform warts aren't painful, but they might irritate you since they grow around your mouth and nose, which are sensitive areas of your face. They also grow far more quickly than other types of warts.
Homeopathy warts treatment
There are various conventional treatments for wart removal. The most commonly used topical cream is salicylic acid. Cryosurgery, which involves freezing warts with liquid nitrogen, surgical curettage, keratolysis, and laser are some more wart treatments. These procedures usually only provide temporary relief, and there is a chance of relapse in addition to the risk of surgical complications.
Homeopathy treatment for warts is one of the most effective treatment options. This is because, unlike other systems of treatment, homeopathy seeks to eliminate the 'root' cause of warts rather than suppressing symptoms.
Skin warts can be treated well using homeopathy. Homeopathic treatment for warts is beneficial when there is discomfort, itching, or bleeding. It also aids in the progressive reduction and removal of warts.
The Winchester Hospital conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled experiment. Over six weeks, 174 people were given homeopathic treatment for warts. This study indicated that homeopathic treatments are safe to use and had a beneficial outcome.
