The most common application in getting rid of warts is using vinegar or salicylic acid. Soak cotton balls in either solution. Press and tape them against your warts. Leave them from 2-12 hours per day. Redress. Repeat.
You need duct tape/plastic wrap, bandage/gauze and hot water. Tightly bind the wart area with duct tape/plastic wrap. Cover it with bandage/gauze. Leave it on for a few days, max of 6 days. Be sure that no wart is exposed. This is very important so the skin underneath the warts is suffocated, hindering further transmission of wart viruses. Immediately soak the wart area in hot water when you remove the bindings. Use a skin file, pumice stone or emery board to smoothen the warts out. Repeat the steps until you see improvement.
You could also apply castor oil or petroleum jelly or even superglue to the wart growths. These dry up your skin, hence the warts come off naturally. Leave them on for 2-5 hours or even 2 days.
The last one is using ascorbic acid or Vitamin C tablets. Crush. Dissolve in water. Apply the paste on your warts, cover with bandage and leave for an hour. Do this several times a day for several days a week.
As with any medical condition, you should consult your physician before considering any home treatment. Getting rid of warts is now very easy. Just be sure to note your allergies before using any of the home remedies. Consult a doctor if you see no improvement despite months of treatment.
