Warts—10 Ways to Get Rid of Them Naturally

Natural Wart Removal

“I was teased to bits at school today for having hands that look like bubble wrap,” says one online forum member. “I want to get rid of my warts, now.”

“For the last 5 or 6 years I have been getting warts on my hands,” says another. “I recently had one burned off, and in addition to a nasty scar, I now have two more on that hand and another on the other hand.”

Unsightly, stubborn growths that can appear most anywhere on the skin, warts can be embarrassing, irritating, and depressing. Here’s some more information on what causes them, and possible natural wart removal solutions that may work for you.

What Are Warts?

Warts are benign skin growths caused by viruses. Most come from the human papillomavirus (HPV), which infects the top layer of skin and causes it to grow rapidly, creating a wart. You can contract this virus if you cut or damage your skin in some way, and then touch someone else who has it. You can also catch the virus by sharing towels, razors, or other personal care items.

Though anyone can develop warts, some people are more at risk, particularly children and teens and people with a weakened immune system. There are several different kinds of warts—each looks different and will show up on different parts of the body.

Common warts: These most often occur on the hands, and are rough, dome-shaped, and gray-brown.

Plantar warts: These grow on the soles of the feet and are hard and thick with dark specks. They can be painful when you walk.

Flat warts: These can grow on the face, arms, and legs. They’re small, have flat tops, and may be light yellow, brown, or pink.

Filiform warts: These can grow on the face, usually around the mouth, nose, or chin. They are the same color as the skin, but they have thread-like growths sticking out of them.

Periungual warts: These occur under and around the fingernails and toenails.

Many times, warts will go away on their own, but sometimes they can be stubborn and stick around for much longer than you’d like.

10 Solutions for Natural Wart Removal

We have several wart removal tips and tricks for you to try besides Compound W, freezing, and other standard techniques. Meanwhile, work on prevention at the same time—avoid walking barefoot, don’t share personal hygiene items, and avoid touching all warts—yours and everyone else’s.

1. Boost your immune system

Warts are caused by a virus, so one of the best ways to get rid of them is to boost your body’s ability to fight them. In fact, many people notice that warts show up when they’re feeling tired, sick, or worn down. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep and exercising regularly, and use some potent immune boosters like astragalus, elderberry, olive leaf, vitamin C, zinc, turmeric, and cat’s claw.

2. Stop the spread

Not only can warts be passed from person to person, but you can also spread them around your own body through touch. If you touch your wart, for instance, and then touch another part of your body before washing your hands, you may spread the virus, and notice new warts popping up several days later. Be conscious of this, and vigilantly wash your hands.

3. Use pineapple

Apply fresh pineapple directly to the wart several times a day. The natural acids and enzymes will help.

4. Garlic

Mix some fresh garlic with water and apply the paste to the wart. Put a bandage on top. Re-apply every few hours and continue until the wart is gone.

5. Baking powder

Mix baking powder and castor oil into a paste, apply to the wart at night, and cover with a bandage. Repeat daily. You can also try crushed, fresh basil in the same way—or even mix the two together.

6. Vitamins

Crush up a Vitamin C tablet and mix with water to make a thick paste. Apply to the wart and cover with a bandage. You can also try Vitamin E—break a capsule, rub on the wart, and cover.

7. Aspirin

Use Aspirin like the Vitamin C tablet—crush, add a little water, apply the paste to the wart, and cover overnight. Repeat for several nights until gone.

8. Tea tree oil

Apply tea tree oil directly to the wart, then cover with the bandage. Repeat daily. You can also mix with clove and/or Frankincense oils for additional power.

9. Bee propolis

Some people have found success applying bee propolis directly to the wart several times a day. Or try applying at night and covering until morning.

10. Aloe vera

Fresh from the actual aloe vera plant is best. Break off a leaf and rub the gel onto the wart. Aloe contains malic acid. If you don’t have the plant, get the purest form of aloe gel you can find. Cover after each application.

    Hi guys, I hope you read this comment before you use garlic. Don’t use it. It might work, I still don’t know but i put some crushed garlic on my wart (inner side forearm – thinner skin than on the outer) and covered it with a band aid over night. It stung me for a couple of hours, but I didn’t pay attention to it, thinking it’s supposed to be that way. In the morning i removed it all and found that I had a chemical burn, and blister was forming. I’m not sure how long it will take for it to come back to normal, or will it even be normal again, cuz I know chemical burns leave dark patches on certain areas of skin but I’ll report after a couple of days. So, yeah… Don’t use garlic.

  2. Lynne says

    I’m in my 40s and have had warts on one hand for over 7 years, covering my knuckle which isn’t easy to hide and I find it so embarrassing , I’ve had them frozen off 3 times and they didn’t budge, I’ve tried lots of over the counter remedies and also lots of natural ones, duct tape, lemon juice, aspirin, bicarbonate of soda, oregano oil, lemon oil, banana skins, tea tree oil, and many more, nothing worked and I’ve spent a fortune, In the last month I’ve started using cod liver oil capsules 1000 mg, I pierce the capsule and spread over the warts every night before bed and I could not believe the warts are disappearing, 5 of the warts have gone completely, they have just disappeared into the skin with no scarring, only one of the warts is not reacting to it, I thought I would never get rid of them as I’ve tried so many things and quite a lot of them were painful to use, using this was effortless and within 2 weeks i started noticing a difference.

      • Lynne k says

        Hi , it is not painful and it is still working for me, all the warts that I had have now disappeared, I am still applying 1 capsule at night and will continue for another month to make sure they don’t return .

        • Ann M says

          Do you cover the warts after applying the cod liver oil? And is it a thin layer of oil or are you really dousing it? Any brand of ol you recommend? My sons warts didn’t respond to freezing and are spreading. Desperate to stop the growth and kill current ones. He does ingest liquid cod liver oil to boost his immune system daily but that hasn’t helped his warts externally.

          • Lynne k says

            Hi, I didn’t cover my warts after applying the cod liver oil, I pierced one capsule and rubbed over the warts, I used the whole capsule, most of mine were on one finger, I didn’t use any particular brand, just the cheapest ones in the pharmacy. I hope it works for your son .

          • Lynne k says

            Hi, within a few weeks the warts started disappearing, I continued using it for around 8 weeks and all my warts have completely gone .

    • Meena says

      Hi Lynne,
      Can u pls tell brand name of cod liver oil.
      Im from india.we dont have that capsules in nearest pharmacy.
      It will be good if u mention the brand name of the capsule so that i can order online. If possible ,pls tell the cost of the product too..


  3. Peter L Bushnell says

    This REALLY works. Wet the wart, then cover it with Bicarbonate Soda (Baking Powder) and leave it on to dry. Do this two – three times a day for 3 days, problem fixed. Cant be more simple than that. Cheap too.

  4. Sid says

    Hi! I was wondering what the best way is to get rid of my wart. It’s been there for over a year and I’ve gotten it froze off by the doctors but then it comes back. Thanks!

  5. Joy says


    I am 22 years old male and have these filliform warts for 5 months now on my chin area, they have spread to other areas of my chin. I am guessing it is because of the ripping them off while shaving when I did not know what they were. I have been told by the doctor to leave it and let it go by itself, which may take years. In the mean time I should not touch it as it might spread. This means that I cannot be intimate with my partner, they might catch it too! I am really worried and I need help!

    I do have tea tree oil at home and going to start using it. Would apple cider vinegar help? and how can I boost my immunity (the pharmacist recommended to have vitamin tablets)?

    Thank you

  6. Judnina says

    Hi , I am 40 Year’s old and I am having warts on the face and they keep growing. I am getting really worried about this , please reply to me ? If it’s safe to use any of your home remedies which you are recommending, Many thanks.

  7. Ruth Duffy says

    – I should have said that the doctor tried freezing them, but after two sessions, was afraid they were ‘fighting back’! Then he sent us to the dermatologist, who attempted to freeze them again, but the pain made it hard, but afterwards part of one did fall off. We were then given Differing cream which was supposed to aggravate it, but it doesn’t seem to have done any good. I want to convince the doctors to refer us for another go – but I don’t know if they will.

  8. Ruth Duffy says

    My poor son started with verrucas on his feet – they were frozen and one treated with acid, but some remain – then he got warts on his fingers and thumb, and now the poor boy, because he gets hay fever and rubs his nose, he has them on his nostrils. He is only 9 and they are upsetting him, but the freezing and creams seem to be very painful for him. – I just want to get rid of them, but obviously, on his nostrils, you can’t cover them. I will try anything, but he seems to have quite a low pain threshold – or things are painful on your nostrils?

  9. Jason C Hughes says

    I’ve got a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot (the heel area)…it’s so hard to walk… whenever I walk, I limp so it looks like I have a injured leg or something. It stings so much. This will sound crazy but I want to walk normally again.

  10. Adelle says

    I used tea tree oil to treat my wart on my hand – it had been there for over a year, and with only 2 or 3 treatments of applying the oil to the wart, it completely disappeared! Root and all. Thanks so much for the recommendation!

  11. Derek Dewitt says

    I had no idea that fresh garlic and water could help with warts. My son gets warts on his hands all the time, so I am always looking for ways to get rid of them. I’ll have to try this out to see if we see results.

  12. Judy says

    My daughter had a huge wart on her thumb. We used oregano oil, and duct tape. Once a day, she would soak it in water, then file it down with a nail file to remove the dead skin – then apply the oregano oil and duct tape. It took about two weeks to get rid of it. It was really big though by the time she showed it to me, had I been aware sooner, it wouldn’t have taken so long to get rid of.

  13. Kathy Moe says

    I have had a wart under my right index fingernail for over 20 years. It has spread to both thumbs and my tongue. Dr tried the acid first, it hurt a lot. Once a flat one on a thumb was surgically removed-it was back in 3 days. Then I was sent to a dermatologist. Every 2 weeks she burned (acid) than froze them. This continued for about 2 years. She also tried antacid med, lassar treatments, and Aldara(a genital area med). Nothing worked!! I also tried Lidocaine gel and a hand cream (it worked many years prior for 20 that were on my hands, then this stubborn one reappeared.) I have tried keeping them covered with bandaids and tape, and home freezing. Family members and some friends have also gotten them from me. Because of these warts location they are very painful and still spreading. I was once told that dry hands are more prone to get them. Drs have given up trying to remove them! For some reason my body refuses to fight them off!!

    • A.E. says

      Have you tried keeping them saturated in olive oil?
      Soak in oil, then cover with a bandaid which has the pad saturated in olive oil as well.

  14. nem nom says

    I had very stubborn about 1x1cm size (~0.4 inch) wart bottom of my foot for 20 years. I tried sometimes to get rid of it by natural methods, like banana peel, ducktape, castor oil. None of these couldn’t solve the problem. Those more like irritated it and made it grow a bit. And those methods made me feel pretty uncomfortable, bottom of foot felt sore and heat, i don’t know why. So I was afraid to use those methods for over 2 weeks.

    However, now the wart has gone! The skin has renewed itself, i can still see where the wart was located but the wart itself has gone.

    It was accidental and what i did was pretty simple. All i needed to do was eat about every day 1 orange, 1 apple, some raw/cooked carrots and some yellow bellpeppers. (these added to my otherwise already pretty healthy lifestyle and diet). I’m pretty sure my body lacked vitamin C.

    After 2 months i was surprised to noticed that the wart had shrinked noticeable, after ~3 months gone.

    Hopefully this success gives some hope to you all who have some stubborn warts. 🙂

  15. Tess Tickles says

    Duct tape works GREAT. My son had several. A huge wart on his big toe. Wrapped it in duct tape. Fell off in less than 10 days.

    • Jamie says

      How do you do the duct tape remedy? Just leave it on constantly ? Change it when air gets in or the tape isn’t sticky ? Do you leave it on 24-7 ?

  16. Jessica says

    After I had my daughter I got a wart on my arm, I had the Dr burn it off but it wouldn’t go away. It then spread to my other arm and a finger. After a few treatments with the dr and no progress I bought my own burn kit for home and kept burning regularly for months. That didn’t work so I bought a tea tree oil based wart remover from the natural health food store, that didn’t work either. Finally I used apple cider vinegar, I soaked a tiny piece of cotton in acv, placed it on each wart and covered with a bandaid that completely sealed the area from air. I reapplied every day and all the warts were gone within a couple weeks, it itches and burned a little bit but it was worth it. I have very minimal tiny white scars,, which could either have been the acv or most likely the multiple burning attempts.

  17. Grant says

    Great article! I love the holistic approach to solving the problem. I think it’s also important to take the pressure off the wart by getting some sort of callus cushion so the wart is more level with the shoe. Also don’t wear shoes like high heels as it can cause more discomfort. How sensitive your skin plays a factor in what method to choose. The alternatives listed in your article are better than going to the doctor and paying hundreds for something that may not work!

  18. Ashlyn says

    Hi. I’m a 15 yr old girl. Last yr i got some warts on my face and had got them burned. Now its all gone but for the past two months i’ve had a wart on my thumb but only there and its only one. Yesterday I thought of trying out the castor oil and baking soda method. Hopefully it works. But at times when touch something using my thumb that part hurts. Is that usual??

    P.S. I don’t want to get them burned…..I’m scared.

  19. Tammy says

    I have read lot of people remedies if your having a very hard time ridding the warts you can ask your doctor for a medicine you take to rid them for good. I know this because I was one of those people but it happen to me after a bone marrow transplant the hpv was living in my body after I talk to my doctor she game me medicine to take for 2 weeks and they disappeared I hope this helps any one out.

  20. Ali says

    I’ve had warts on my feet when i was 6. My mom ended up Just taking me to the dr to get them iced off. They haven’t come back. Now im an adult…

      • Laura says

        I’ve gone through the icing/freezing off of warts, repeatedly, and never to complete success (likely due to placement)… And it was very painful, again, likely due to placement. I had two plantar warts, one on each pointer finger, directly in the outside bend of the top portion of the finger, so the freezing process and every moment afterwards was intensely felt.

      • Ryan says

        It does. Yet it is tolerable. I even had freezing in a more sensitive area a few times. And that just hurts. Yet. It is tolerable. However it never removed it for me. Hence why I am here.

        • AJ says

          I have a plantar wart on the crease of my index finger. My doctor tried freezing it but it didn’t work. He did say there’s a risk of damage to the nerves. It was moderately painful but then I am not particularly good with pain.

      • Dena says

        Icing does hurt. It is a chemical that is sprayed on the wart. It does have a freezing affect. The icing itself does not kill the virus or do away with the wart. My dr described it to me as if the freezing liquid tears down the wart as if you tore down the walls of a castle. After the “walls” of the wart start deteriorating, your body actually heals the wart & makes an environment that the wart can’t live in.

      • Kaitlyn says

        I got one frozen off of my hand with liquid nitrogen when I was ten and I hate to tell you this but it hurt really bad. Keep in mind that I was only 10, so it may not hurt for you but I just thought you should know that it hurt for me a lot

    • Jerry says

      Good article! I’ve heard of some of these treatments, but not all of them. for example, bee propolis and aloe Vera are totally new to me. Sounds effective though!
      I suffered with a bad plantar wart for over two years and was able to get rid of it using the duct tape method, epsom salt soaks and salicylic acid pads. Not COMPLETELY natural, but it sure worked and was close enough to it! I did also try to improve my immune system and took in antiviral foods like garlic to some degree.

    does anyone know the best way to get rid of lots of warts on the tips of your fingers. i have warts on the tip of every finger, and not just one multiple on each finger tip. i originally started with only one on my pointer finger, and at the time i chewed my nails really badly, so because i was chewing my nails they spread. now i still chew my nails a little but not as much as i used to, so i was just thinking my hands where starting to look better, but i still have these big ugly warts. can anyone tell me the best and fastest home remedy.


  29. Giovan says

    Working in the field of nutrition for 5 years you can never go wrong with essential oils. I myself am going essential oil route for my son. Aloe Vera as well. Apple cider vinegar possibly too.

    I think the concentration of some of this remedies is a huge factor to consider. Remedies with acids like the garlic and pineapple should be taken with caution. Too strong of acid can burn the skin.

    Planter wart removal.
    My Grandmother showed me a unique way before she died.

    Get the spit from back of your tongue, the gooey white spit first thing in the morning before drinking or eating.
    Apply the white spittle directly on the wart every morning. Don’t stick your finger back into your mouth after first application, this will cross contaminate.

    Gone in a couple of weeks.
    planters can be large and painful. I got rid of mine just as she said.

  41. sage says

    I like this website. Warts are annoying and I dont want to waste my money on freezing it off. These are ways you can get rid of those annoying warts that work best for you.

  42. Cynthia says

    I have used garlic for the last two warts on my fingers. It worked like magic! You should roughen the wart with an emery board to open the surface. Apply fresh garlic slice and bandage. It will burn and sting and then subside. Do this several times with some rest time for your finger in between (no garlic).

    Rather quickly, the skin will begin to deaden as you kill the wart. You can see the dots on the surface, which are the tiny blood vessels feeding the wart. That’s why the garlic stings when applied.

    The new skin will appear underneath slowly. Once you peel off the dead skin, the wart will be gone. It takes a while for the skin to detach enough to peel off. Make sure you get ALL the virus cells. If wart is not completely gone or grows back, do it again, and you will be sure to succeed the second time. Usually takes just one try.

    If you cover with ductape and leave it on there, the wart will soon turn white and fall off. If ductape falls off put new strip on immediately. Take off every 6 days and the next day start the process again.

  45. Ken Dacey says

    This is a true story so help me GOD.

    When I was about 4years old both the back of my hands were covered in warts. I hated it. I hadn’t started school yet and I was terrified I was going to have to go to school and all the other kids we see them. The lady that lived next door to us also babysat me during the day. When all my brothers and sisters were in school and my parents were gone and it was quiet she brought me out to her back yard. She pulled a potato that was cut in half out of her apron. She told me to rub one half of the wet part of the potato on the back of my hand and the same thing with the other half on the other hand. She told me to throw the potato’s over my shoulder and to not go looking for them, which I did but I couldn’t find them. lol. I swear the warts were gone in a very short time I don’t know exactly but maybe a week. I was so happy and they were never a problem again. Try it what do you have to lose. I swear it worked for me.

    DUCT TAPE!!!!!!! When my siblings and I would spend the whole summer at the neighborhood pool and in the gross locker rooms, we would always get warts on our feet. My mom would always first put duct tape on them. You have to make sure the duct tape is flat and there’s no air that can get in to the wart. Works like a charm.

      Anyone who has ever seen plantar warts, agree that the spectacle is quite unpleasant. Warts on the foot, as serious skin defect, is susceptible to all kinds of treatment. The main thing – is to choose for a particular case the best option, which will return the original skin a healthy appearance and prevent a recurrence. The plantar wart must be treated by a podiatrist, it isn’t recommended to get rid of by yourself, better to delete it in cosmetic clinic. Here detailspinkycloud.com/away-with-the-pain-at-every-step-how-to-get-rid-of-plantar-callosity-calluses-and-plantar-warts.
      The main cause is the human papillomavirus, or HPV. HPV infection occurs in childhood. Almost all children are infected with the virus. But not all of them get sick. Usually warts appear in childhood and adolescence, but then, as people grow older, the immune system of adults is already able to cope with the virus, and these growths no longer occur on the skin. noskinproblems.com/how-to-get-rid-of-plantar-warts-removal-and-treatment/.
      Aggravating factors are injuries of the soles of the feet: scratches, cuts, scrapes and blisters, excessive feet sweating and wearing tight shoes.

        My son had plantar wart, a big one. We spend a lot of money with podiatrist. Didn’t work! We treat it with castor oil every night, cover it with band aid and it worked wonderfully!!! It is gone, no scars!

  56. Sonia VA says

    I would like to add APPLE CIDER. This is proven effective as I have tried it myself and use it as well on my son’s warts on his feet. Fast effect when covered after application. What I did, I soak cotton on the apple cider or rather wet the cotton with apple cider, put it on top of the warts and then covered it with tape. After a few days, warts are gone.

  57. Red Algae User says

    Red Algae powder has been my number one go to substance to eliminate warts. It is available in free form or in capsules. I used to get recurring warts on my hands and fingers but now have not had a single recurrence since taking red algae. I don’t need to continue taking it anymore if I choose as the warts have not returned. I recommended it to friends and family who also had success with taking it. Since red algae is anti viral it also helps to prevent colds and flu.

  58. Felicia says

    I had a huge wart on my shoulder for over 20 years. I used garlic on it. It burned a little. After about 2 weeks the brown outer layer peeled off. Soon after the wart fell off and after 22 years it is free and clear. Thx for other remedies.

  60. Charlotte says

    Thuja tincture works great to get rid of warts. Just apply a few drops of the tincture on the wart several times per day.

  61. Kyla says

    I had a wart and I used compound w on it, it went away for awhile and came back a few months later. Now I have another one on my hand and it makes me mad that they grow back. I want to use a different technique other than compound w. I will try one of these and see if it works at all.

    THANK YOU!!!!!

  62. Jeanette says

    I have long standing warts on my lower left eyelid – at one time I had one surgically removed but they didn’t cut deep enough and it grew right back.
    Any ideas?

  63. Aubrey says

    Hi guys
    I have horrible muluscum warts, and they make me feel really gross and bad about myself
    I have gotten them treated four times and have an appointment for a fifth appointment at the dermotologist for these warts
    My dermotologist puts bettle juice on the muluscum on my legs, but I have muluscum on my face too, so she takes hydrogen peroxide and freezes them off
    But what I don’t enjoy is that the preceger is painful, and my next appt. is on April 5, so I would enjoy if I could have a home remedie that would take them away completely.

    I have tried home to remedies, but none that I’ve tried have worked or had the warts gone away completely. Muluscum warts almost look like pimples. But once you have about 60! of them across your leg crawling across your leg, and constantly spreading, now to the face… You realize they aren’t pimples!

    A easy way the muluscum warts can be spread is by physical contact (sex), touching the warts and then touching another skin area, a toilet seat without toilet paper before you sit down, using a towel and then have someone else use it, and by wearing the same clothes or pj’s more than three times separated, each week. So mainly… Muluscum is spread from person to person.

    Each time I go to the dermotologist, it costs me about $120.00…EACH TIME?!???? My family and I are sick of paying to much each time I go, when in a result the muluscum just keeps spreading. That bikini I liked, now I won’t wear because of my embarrassing muluscum. I will wear swim long shorts, and a top to the beach. People always comment about my face, and they tell me how weird it looks… What do I do? I need an unpainfull/ home remedie, that will get these warts away FOR GOOD! ????????????????. Please, please, please, please reply!! Before April 5th! My bday is April 15th. Who wants warts on their birthday?❤️ I would appreciate it! You all are awesome! Thank you!

    • Emi Green says

      As gross as it may sound dab urine on your warts, and take foods that increase your immune system, and also try applying a apple cider vinger with baking soda paste, you have to be persistent and unleash war! But also remember that you are beautiful and that you love yourself warts and all! Also I really hope you take this into consideration, but look up the metaphysical meaning of warts to find the ROOT cause of the warts and to heal yourself! I hope you have a wonderful day!

  64. Rachel says

    I had 2 fingers covered with warts and i started taking a high dose of turkey tail mushrooms (12 capsules a day) for a different immune support issue, and after 2 weeks i noticed that the warts were all completely gone and haven’t come back – that was 2 years ago.

  65. ku says

    I’ve had this unappealling wart on the side of my thumb for several months now and i’ve becoming increasingly self-conscious about it. I read about using tea tree oil and a bandaid to rid of it and decided to try it out since tea tree oil is one of my staple, natural products for everyday use. Since applying the oil directly to the wart and bandaging, I’m SHOCKED at how much my wart has decreased in size. It doesn’t look nearly as unattractive as before and is also appearing much more flat and less white/dried. I plan to use tea tree oil for about two more weeks just to ensure the wart is gone. For anyone curious about these natural remedies, they work. I’m so thankful that this nasty wart (I’ve named it Adam) will soon be gone! (:

  66. Elle says

    Raw apple cider vinegar applied every night for a week to ten days gets rid of warts. We had great success ridding our son’s fingers and our grandson’s foot from warts with the ACV. Use a Q-tipto apply a circle of vaseline to the outer skin around the wart, soak a small piece of cotton with apple cider vinegar and apply this on the wart. Cover with a bandaide. Do this each night for 7-10 nights and voila, the wart dries up and drops off.

  67. Aubrey says

    Thank you so much for the information about muluscom warts, Brady! I will definitely have to try that trick over my spring break! Thank You! ????

  68. Vanessa says

    Hi i have a big wart on the side of my lip. It was small years ago but then when i got pregnant and gained a bit of weight my wart grew with it and now its killing my self esteem. Finding it hard to talking to people because i know they are just looking at my wart. WILL these home remedies work on my wart?

    • Aubrey says

      Don’t feel bad about your wart Venessa! I think certain home remedies will work for this type of wart. I know that this may sound painful, but it’s really not! Try taking an ice cube, partiLly melted, and numbing the wart. Then the wart, over the days will grow “smaller”. Apply CeraVe hydroquartazone to the wart I it starts to itch or turn red. Otherwise I would see your local dermatologist! Thanks! ????

    Hello, I have been to the doctor several times the warts seem to go away for a small amount of time but they keep returning. I have some flat warts on my pubic area and the doctor had already confirmed that they are not sexually transmitted. they are simply typical wart that you would get on any other part of you body. what should i do? I really don’t want to have to freeze them off again. it was extremely painful and I’ve gone through the lengthy process several teimes already. any help would be extremely appreciated. thank uou

    I’ve had a common wart on the inner side of my big toe for over a year. Sometimes it feels painful when I walk, and its really annoying. It looks damaged, with small splinters in it, and is very rough and dry as it has been picked. So what’s the best way to get rid of it quickly? -K.C.

  73. name* says

    kindly recommand me the best treatment these are so painful to walk


  74. Jessica says

    you can also try duck tape. put the ductape on the wart, cover with a band aid (if wanted) and wait until the bandage is peeling off. if wart is still not gone, try a few more times. it will not come off the first time.

      Hi Abiodun,
      Each treatment is different for everyone so I would suggest trying out a few to see if you find one that works for you 🙂

  76. Lizzie says

    When I was younger I had my first wart on my index finger. They began spreading to my knees and some other locations. I went to the doctor to get them froze off and another method called beetle juice. Neither of these attempts worked, in fact the wart on my finger doubled in size! A friend of mine advised me to pee on my “mother wart” (the original on my finger). At first I was absolutely disgusted, but eventually I decided to try it. Miraculously my mother wart disappeared within two weeks, along with all the others on my body. This may sound absolutely revolting, however, it works like no other method I ever tried.

    I live on a farm and we used caustic soda sticks (hornoff) to burn off horns on young calves. I have used this to get rid of warts, it needs only one application but you have to be very careful to get it on surrounding skin. Wash well immediatly after.

  82. Leda Rodrigues says

    The best natural way to get rid of wart and REALLY quickly and cheap is a box of matches and burning it off, work like a charm and you don’t have to repeat anymore. Just fire the matches up and as soon the fires extinguish touch the wart with it and leave it there until like 1 minute, repeat it again and again, I guess you have to fire up 3 or 4 matches.
    You have to be brave that’s all. :o)

  83. Brandy Davey says


    I wanted to share with you a natural way to get rid of molluscum (water warts). My two young daughters had them on their legs and they were spreading quickly. I did a lot of research and found that you could treat them with apple cider vinegar. Ripe a tiny piece of cotton off of a cotton ball and roll it in your fingers to make a small ball. Using tweezers, dip it into apple cider vinegar and then place on the wart and cover with a round band aid. I did this at night for 3 or 4 nights in a row and the warts started to heal within the week. The band aids can come off in the morning. If skin gets irritated after 2 days take a day off and continue the next couple of days. Some of them will get itchy but its usually tolerable.

    At one point I was rolling tiny cotton balls for 60 warts! It took forever and my girls can’t stand the smell of apple cider vinegar anymore but it worked! It had the same affect as treating them with beetle juice would…brilliant stuff! A total life saver considering molluscum can last for up to 9 months.


  84. Jesse says

    I have warts on my fingers and tried the garlic solution, but my garlic press leaves it in little chunks; how finely crushed does it have to be?

  85. Vesna says

    For easy and painless wart removal, scrape off the inside of a banana peel (a small amount), apply it to the wart and cover with bandage over night. Repeat for 1 week and the wart will disappear. It does not affect or damage the healthy skin around the wart and is the best and most effective method for kids.

  86. Tee says

    I was taught to get a gold coin (one dollar or two dollar) and rub in on top of the wart. then keep the coin in a sealed bag or box. the wart will disappear after a couple of days. each time a new wart pops up get the coin and do the same. Repeat until is goes. IT REALLY DOES WORK!

      I have a wart on my face too. If u find a solution plz let me know too. I had once got rid of it by an Ayurvedic medicine and homeopathy. Also have burned it. Yet its on ma cheeks for over 5 years. But now it’s very much visible than it use to be. One thing which I find to work is turmeric and red sandalwood mixed in yoghurt to be applied on it. It makes it smaller. But as soon as you stop it comes back

DONT LET A ANNOYING VIRUS HOLD YOU BACK FROM WHAT YOU LOVE!!???? Yes! I am saying wear that skin showing bikini to the beach, yes I am saying to go sit by that cute guy you like. Yes I am saying to go out every now and then!! Don’t waste your life because of a virus! I hope this helped all you people who complain about your body/warts. It’s just a bad day. Not a bad life.

  92. John says

    I have had verrucas on my feet for around ten years. A cluster of them on the ball of my right foot and another cluster on the heel of my left foot plus several little ones dotted around which have appeared in the last 6 months or so. I also had a wart on one of my fingers on my left hand which was part under my nail so I had to cut back my nail to reveal the whole wart. I battled with it if four and a half years using various wart treatments such as Bezuka and Wartner which both caused pain and no results. I also tried Cider viniger lemon peel, banana peel, aspirin, basil, and more. I had a plaster on my finger constantly with something under it in the hopes it would kill my wart but it was so stubborn it wouldn’t shift. I must have had a plaster over my finger for more than a year. I also tried applying bleach to the wart daily plus dabbing it with tea tree oil or manuka oil and goodness knows what else. Finally someone told me about Spirulina which is a blue green algae and can be bought in any health shop. I decided just over a month ago that I would give it a go. I mixed a teaspoon of the powder into a glass of water till it dissolved and then glugged it down in one. It’s not too pleasant to taste but can be mixed with juice or smoothies too and after a few days I got used to the taste. After two weeks I began to notice a change it the wart on my finger, like it was coming away from the skin around the edges. Just a couple of days later I could clearly see that it was getting smaller then each day I could see it getting smaller and smaller. Finally I was able to push the main top part of the wart away and it left just the underneath. I kept glugging down my Spirulina daily and everyday could see my finger getting better and the nice pretty pink skin returning. After a month the wart is now gone after all those years of trying different cures. I still have verrucas on my feet but they are getting smaller but they were so big I knew they would take longer. I definitely recommend Spirulina powder to any wart sufferers. I hope this post helps you all get rid of those horrible stubborn warts. Good luck everyone.

    • Aisling says

      Hi John,
      Thank you so so so much for this tip! I had a nasty wart on my shoulder and had tried everything, natural or otherwise, and could not remove it. I had an box of spirulina in the cupboard after my husband was ill a few years ago and we used it to rebuild his health. It didn’t even occur to me to try it. Two weeks later, after a half teaspoon every morning, the wart is almost completely gone! Winner! Thank you!!

    To remove warts mix small equal parts of baking soda and balsamic vinegar directly to the wart and cover immediatly, there will be stings and discomfort, but it works like a bomb!

  94. Trish says

    I would love any advice? I have Multiple Sclerosis and on a medication that seems to give a lot reactions to my body. I now have red blotchy skin on my chest and neck& I was told it was rosacea. I also have very dry facial skin. I haven’t been able to put makeup on my face. I wish I knew what would take the heat, dryness especially around my nose and below. Thanks for any advice.

    • Annmarie Skin Care says

      Hi Trish,

      I’m so sorry to hear about the rosacea!

      As you said, this reaction is most likely from the medication that you’re on. Your skin is an elimination system and it sounds like the medicine that you’re taking could be over-taxing to your other elimination systems a bit so your skin is taking it on. I would suggest working with a really gentle liver herb like dandelion root (you can get it in a tea at most grocery stores) to help strengthen your body’s ability to break down the medication that you’re taking.

      For skin care, you’ll want to work with a really nourishing routine. The Radiant Skin Silk would be soothing for the areas where you’re having the breakouts. For your face, I would suggest a simple daily routine with the Aloe-Herb Cleanser and the Unscented Facial Oil. 1-2X weekly, the Coconut Honey Mask could be really nourishing and moisturizing for the skin.

      I hope that helps 🙂
      Much love,

    • EB says

      Hi Trish 🙂
      My sister just gave me some pure avocado oil to be used as facial oil.
      I have never tried a BETTER oil or moisturizer on my face, it’s VERY healing. My skin looks more ‘glowing’ and my makeup glides on better. Also, I’ve been prone to acne my whole life, and this stuff does not clog my face at all.
      I recommended it to a friend with dry skin problems and he LOVES it.
      Any unrefined, cold pressed and raw pure avocado oil is good, as long as it’s not heat processed and commercially produced that strips everything out of it. I would get the pure,good stuff at any natural food store, (whole foods, maybe even trader joe’s?) Any natural based products store should have it,
      and try to get it in a dark bottle, because all light and heat is the enemy of oils. It’s not cheap either, but a few drops is all you’ll need for the entire face
      (I spritz my face first with distilled water and then spread the oil on and massage it in (it traps in the moisture and spreads better with less oil). It should last a long time. Just keep it in the refrigerator to preserve it, so it won’t go rancid (it’s a delicate oil). You can put it in a wide mouth jar container and take out a dropper full each time you need it, then put it back in the ‘frig. Anyway…I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it, and ounce for ounce, it’s STILL much cheaper than most creams and moisturizers out there. hope this helps 🙂

      PS…also, the spice Tumeric mixed with warm milk (and maybe a dash of cinnamon?) is very good for anti inflammation and skin problems. It’s also a good liver tonic as well. 1tsp. to 1 c. milk (or milk substitute) is all you need. It’s an acquired taste to some, but after a few days to a week of drinking one per day, you’ll start to like the taste.

      Hi Jose,

      Because your wart is in such a sensitive spot, we would suggest discussing the removal with your dermatologist.

  98. dubba says

    TCA : tri-chloric-acetic acid does peel off warts, moles very fast, but care to be taken while applying regarding dilution and quantity – read disclaimer very seriously. A single touch of needle end cotton dab at the root is sufficient.

  99. burgundygirl says

    Another way to get rid of warts is to dab a small piece of cotton ball with vinegar, (either kind will do) and adhere it to the wart with a band aid each night until it disappears. My husband couldn’t believe how well it worked on one of his on his finger.

  100. AS says

    Deb – I have read that moles warts, and skin tags all have the same cause, not sure if that’s true, but it seems to me these are all safe, so it can’t hurt to try.

  101. Mohammad Yousuf says

    Found it very knowledgeable and useful. I have started garlic therapy on my warts since a couple of days before suggesting it to others.

  102. micki says

    I had tried everything! I started taking MSM (sulfur) daily and around the 2 week mark my two warts were just about gone–completely gone 3-4 weeks! I wasn’t even taking it for them! I was taking approximately 1-2tbsp in a big glass of water daily.

  103. ns says

    I got very dry skin eczema around my nose and chin, which usually are not dry. I used calendula cream, it soothed but didn’t heal it. I am now trying turmeric in coconut oil and it’s much better, its soothing, the skin is not drying up, and it looks better the next day too. Thanks to your article explaining that these are from a virus, I am going try a turmeric/cocnut oil concentrate on the skin tags. Take a little turmeric in a small container (empty face cream container) and add some coconut oil. The turmeric will settle to the bottom but stir it and apply to affected part, or even just the oil as its infused with turmeric and its healing properties.

  105. Yvonne says

    I have had warts on and off since I was a child. The most effective remedy I have found is wild oregano oil, applied once or twice a day for about one week. The wart will be gone ( and with no scarring) as I had from products such as compound W.

  106. M. L. Tucker says

    Another method that works for eliminating warts uses a Swiss product called Molkosan, made from fermented whey. Make a 1:1 solution with water & use in a spray bottle to apply a few times a day. It dries quickly. This worked wonders for my Daughter who had stubborn & painful warts spreading on her big toe. This took some time, but eventually the warts blackened & were gone soon after, & have not returned.

  107. Terri says

    When I was a child I had warts on the palm of one hand. I remember not wanting to hold anyone’s hand because I was embarrassed. My dad put milkweed on my hand and they disappeared. Unfortunately, I don’t remember how long it took, or how many applications he applied. It worked and I never had warts again????????

  108. Jeanette says

    We used lemon oil on the bottom of my sons feet and the warts cleared up. You have to put it on several times a day for a few months, but it will eventually clear up and doesn’t come back!

  109. erin says

    I’ve found that tea tree oil usually does the job. Some people are saying these home remedies don’t work, but keep in mind they are not a quick fix. They take some time to work. If you want something that works overnight you will have to pay for over the counter stuff.

  110. Gisela says

    When I became diabetic the warts started appearing on my fingers spent a fortune at the dermatologist. Nothing worked injections, burning them, freezing them. I gave up. Many years later started using Cell Food drops 8 drops in 8 oz of water three times a day. Gone in one week. I do not have a problem with warts still use Cell Food but not every day.

  111. Robin says

    My small son had about fifteen warts on his hands and more kept appearing. This was the remedy I tried and I KNOW that it works- but it may take days or weeks depending on the size of the wart. Get some Vitamin E oil filled capsules and some Vitamin A and D oil filled capsules. Each day squeeze some of both onto a bandaid and cover the wart with it.
    If it’s for a child and they don’t want to have bandaids on all day, just put them on all night. It DOES work. It DOESN’T hurt and it doesn’t leave a scar.
    The warts will flatten and dry up and disappear. Keep putting the oil on for several days after the wart is gone, just to be certain that you got rid of it all.

    As a child I had warts all over my hands which ended up spreading onto my face. It was humiliating.
    When my son developed warts on his hands and one spread to his nose I was horrified thinking he was going to have the same embarrassment that I did. His pediatrician referred us to a dermatologist for removal. They wanted to laser the facial wart. I decided I would try natural remedies first. We alternated propolis, tea tree oil and vitamin e oil topically about three or four times a day.
    ALL of his warts were gone in about two weeks! Such a relief!
    We’ve just found a couple of ways on my youngest son and ate starting the treatment today. Completely confident they will be gone by the end of the month!

    I’ve had warts on my face , specifically on my nose, for about 4 years now but i go to the dermatologist to get it removed. they usually freeze it off but it comes back within a month. It really sucks because its right on the tip of my nose so i cant try many of the methods there are, like the duct tape one. Im really hoping that one of these methods work.

    Hi, i started to have warts on my face and neck i think i was 9 yrs or so. i have tried so many things(aloe milk, dermatology to burn them, bye wart cream, magic wart cream & garlic) but all failed, last week i used garlic and it burned my face so now i have wounds and the warts are still there. what scares me is that my son 9 yr old son started to have them on the face. i wanted to get rid of them from my face and see if the remedies are working so that i can use it to my son’s face. which one can i use, because i’m afraid my face will end up damaged, please assist

      Did you try a doctor? That helped me. I think out of all of these try the sweet ones. Maybe buy a couple aloe plants online if they have none in your area.

    hi in 2002 i had warts in my toes probably 4 to 5 in every big toes…it started one then multiplied..i had until 2003 its very itchy and irritating..i tried everything but not effective…..my dad came from vacation and he asked me to washed his beach towel i didnt want to ruin my newly polished nails so what i did was i used my feet.after that i saw my warts like turned white coz its been soaked with detergent and began itching.on the second day it started to peel of little by little on the third day i almost peeled the bumpy surface and what is left was the black like roots inside i just ignored it and few days later its all gone and never came back until now…so try soaking ur feet with laundry detergents.it was an accidental cure but it worked

    Hello to all.

    As a teen I had over 70 warts on my hands.
    Was awful

    Had to hide my hands as much as possible and was afraid to even hold my girlfriends hand.
    Tried compound W (didn’t work)
    Tried the awful treatment of freezing off the warts at the doctors
    This was so painful and just made things worse

    The only thing that worked was garlic pills
    Just your natural garlic pills that you find with vitamins at any pharmacy or grocery store.

    Took 3 per day for a couple months
    As they started to go away
    Went to 2 pills
    Then 1

    And I have never had a wart again
    I keep a steady amount of garlic in my diet to keep my immune system up

    But this was the best and easiest remedy ever.

    This works people get on it.

    I had a left sole full of warts, in fact there were so much of them that I found it difficult to count them and I could not get rid of them. Over a period of more than one year I tried everything, different natural methods, I was wasting money for the cosmetician and later even for the dermatologist … and nothing helped. Then, half a year ago I became vegan, and at the same time I removed all the sugar from the diet – well not just because of wats, actually at the time I never thought to link warts and a new way of eating, but … today I do’t have not a single wart on the sole.

    I had warts as a child, over 50 at 5 & 6 years old. My mother tried everything to get rid of them including taking me to the Dr. with no luck. Finally she heard about an elderly gentleman who used pow wow ( an old folk remedy) to get rid of warts. Believe or not it worked! I went twice each time it took a week and they were gone. A few years ago I started getting them again. I tried everything to get rid of them, but they only multiplied. In less then a year I had twenty. I began putting emu oil on band aids after trying dozens of other remedies. At about the same time I had started taking bee pollen capsules to help with allergies. Within a few weeks I realized the warts were smaller. After a few months I have only one left! I had stopped taking the bee pollen during the winter when I had the flu. So I am back on them now to get rid of the last one, thank goodness! It is getting smaller. But I will keep taking it because it really is helping with the allergies as well. I hope this helps someone, warts are are embarrassing ,as child or an adult.

    Hi. I know this isn’t natural persay but, I had warts on my thumbs as a kid. My grandparents put nail polish on them & made sure it was totally covered everyday. They said it suffocated it at its roots. It worked. They went away & I never had 1 again. We are trying now on my daughter but, I might try a few of these other remedies in addition to the polish. 🙂

    I have two warts. One that is going away and one that is still here after two years!!! I am going to try crushing vitamin c and mixing it with water and see how that goes.:(

  130. sarah says

    I will try these methods. I have had warts covering my fore head since I was in 2nd grade. It was really embarrassing. One day a girl said ” what’s all over your head?” All day people would tell to use X out or proactive. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my friends because they would talk about my “pimples” right to my face. I fell for anyone who struggles with warts.

    When i was in college i got warts on my fingers in both hands. What i did is i put an adhesive to the mother wart, the one that you think is the very first wart to appear and then scotch tape, i wrap arround it very tight for like 2 to 3 days. After that i noticed that my warts are gone one by one and they never came back.

  132. Rob says

    Good article! I’ve heard of some of these treatments, but not all of them. for example, bee propolis and aloe vera are totally new to me. Sounds effective though!

    I suffered with a bad plantar wart for over two years and was able to get rid of it using the duct tape method, epsom salt soaks and salicylic acid pads. Not COMPLETELY natural, but it sure worked and was close enough to it! I did also try to improve my immune system and took in antiviral foods like garlic to some degree. I created a short blogger page which documented my progress with before and after photos along with more instruction on how I used these methods.
