Wart and its Homeopathic Treatment Details

Definition of Warts

Warts are actually benign growths of the epidermis caused by a virus. The virus resides in the bottom layer of the epidermis and replicates there. Warts can appear nearly anywhere on the body and they differ in appearance, size, and shape.


Viral warts, as the name suggests, are caused by the virus, the most common being the human papillomavirus (HPV) group. There are different sub-types of HPV which cause different types of warts. Like any other viral disease, viral warts are contagious and spread by direct contact.

Viral warts and other wart-like growths:

Viral warts can be confused at times with other skin growths such as skin-tags (benign skin tumor), molluscum contagiosum (growths on the skin which look like white pearls; caused by another group of the virus; often observed in children), moles, birthmarks, lichen planus, etc. A careful look by a trained doctor makes the diagnosis clear.

Treatment of warts:

Warts, in the past and even presently, are often treated locally with the help of some liquid or solution. Some cases are treated by cauterization (burning warts) by skin doctors. All such measures, it has been observed, are temporary; and warts reappear after some time.

Homeopathy Cure for Warts:

Homeopathy treatment for warts offers an excellent and promising cure. The beauty of the treatment is that the medicines are to be taken orally and there is no local application. This treatment, in turn, treats the ailment from within, for a long time and almost permanently.

The course of treatment:

The duration of homeopathic wart treatment varies from patient to patient. The duration of treatment depends on the severity of warts and their chronicity. Approximately, within three months or so, one finds positive results. Warts which are many in number and have existed for more than five years may need a longer course of medication.

Homeopathic treatment is essentially safe and absolutely harmless, which may be taken along with any other medicine if required.
