Homeopathic Remedies for Warts

By Dr Sumit Dhawan , Homeopathy

Warts are growths on your skin and these occur when you get infected by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts can appear in all shapes and sizes and generally occur on the fingers, fingernails and genitals. Warts may appear in anyone but it is most common in children and teenagers. Even though warts are harmless, they can be a nuisance and you may want to get rid of them. Warts are usually treated by freezing them or surgically removing them.

Homeopathy can also help with the treatment of warts. Here is how:

1. Antimonium Crudum-

This remedy is given for warts which appear in groups and are smooth and hard. Other signs that you may need this medicine include having a tongue with a thick white coating, overeating and having trouble digesting food.

2. Calcarea Carbonica-

Calcarea carbonica is used to treat solitary warts which are hard and smooth in nature.

3. Causticum-

Warts which bleed easily and appear on the fingertips, under the fingernails or on the nose can be remedied by causticum. These warts are also usually painful, hard and inflamed in appearance.

4. Dulcumara-

These warts tend to be flat in nature and they appear on the back of the hands as well as the face. These warts tend to be soft and brown or black in color. Dulcumara is especially potent at dealing with warts in patients who have complaints of rheumatism as well.

Finally, a pap smear test should be done in case of any genital wart.
