I has small warts under my eye circle and its increasing day by day, before I had it burn out in local clinics but it came again, is there any natural treatments to heal it up completely, Iíve heard that it passes from one person to another after getting in contacts. Please do provide me some best advice on it. Either some best cosmetic or some cosmetic store.

Well, this may sound pretty silly to you, but, as kids we always sold our warts to someone for a penny. For some reason those warts went away!! It worked every time. Maybe it was just positive thinking but... hey whatever works right!! Give it it try, all it will cost you is a penny :)

y34963, do you mean you actually found someone who wanted warts? i have never heard this before. it is cute. thanks.

I know it sounds funny but as kids we were told to sell them for a penny. The person who bought them (usually grandpa) never got them. I remember telling my doctor about this when my kids got warts and she laughed but said that she has heard of that too and for some reason it works for some people. Of course there is absolutely nothing scientific, just an old wife's tale and it wouldn't work for everyone.

The warts commonly seen on the skin are small, benign (harmless) growths caused by a viral infection. The culprit is one of the HPVs (human papillomaviruses) that can be spread from person to person or be acquired through contact with a contaminated surface. They can also travel from one part of the body to another. These may occur in any part of the skin or mucous membranes but most commonly appear on hands and feet (planter warts).
This usually does not take more than ten days for most stubborn lesions. Alternatively, you can keep on wearing the bandage continuously, changing it two to three times a day. This may speed up the process so that a wart can be removed within two to three days. If you do not have ACV you can use white vinegar to get the same results. Similarly if you do not have a band aid you can use a cotton cloth to tie up.
Simple home remedy:
Apply castor oil directly to the wart with a cotton ball and tie with a band age, it will be gone within a week or so. You can use any band age to tie, however a duct tape will work better as it prevents any air from entering. You can boost the curing tndancy of castor oil by steeping a few cloves of garlic in castor oil. It is very effective remedy for eye warts.

How are warts on the skin removed?
First of all, it's important to know that warts on the skin (such as on the fingers, feet and knees) and warts on the genitals are removed in different ways. Don't try any home remedies or over-the-counter drugs to remove warts on the genital area. You could hurt your genital area by putting certain chemicals on it. You also shouldn't treat warts on your face without talking to your doctor first. The following are some ways to remove common warts from the skin:
Applying salicylic acid. You can treat warts on places such as the hands, feet or knees by putting salicylic acid (one brand name: Compound W) on the warts. To get good results, you must apply the acid every day for many weeks. After you take a bath or shower, pat your skin dry lightly with a towel. Then put salicylic acid on your warts. The acid sinks in deeper and works better when it is applied to damp skin. Before you take a shower or a bath the next day, use an emery board or pumice stone to file away the dead surface of the warts.
Applying cantharidin. Your doctor may use cantharidin on your warts. With this treatment, the doctor "paints" the chemical onto the wart. Most people don't feel any pain when the chemical is applied to the wart. You'll experience some pain and blistering of the wart in about 3 to 8 hours. After treatment with cantharidin, a bandage is put over the wart. The bandage can be removed after 24 hours. When mixtures of cantharidin and other chemicals are used, the bandage is removed after 2 hours. When you see your doctor again, he or she will remove the dead skin of the wart. If the wart isn't gone after one treatment, your doctor may suggest another treatment.
Applying liquid nitrogen. Your doctor may use liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart. This treatment is called cryotherapy. Applying liquid nitrogen to the wart causes a little discomfort. To completely remove a wart, liquid nitrogen treatments may be needed every 1 to 3 weeks for a total of 2 to 4 times. If no improvement is noted, your doctor may recommend another type of treatment.
Other treatments for warts on the skin. Your doctor can also remove warts on the skin by burning the wart, cutting out the wart or removing the wart with a laser. These treatments are effective, but they may leave a scar. They are normally reserved for warts that have not cleared up with other treatments.

I think you came with the right decision to have your warts cured by a doctor. Remember an expert knows best and also have your doctor do it for you to avoid or prevent you from having scars. Perhaps the reason why your warts got back is because you didn't let all your warts cured, that's why it came again.

When I consulted about the removal of warts on my face the doctor only suggested a minor surgery instead of using chemicals. I am contemplating on the idea of getting them removed by a small surgery.

Salicylic acid is the most recommended and better treatment for wart on hands and feet.

Use wartscide or green tea extracts! :)

Warts are treatable but it doesn't mean that there's no possibility of it coming back. Not the good news you want to hear but yes, warts can recur after completely vanishing. So for the unlucky ones, you should try going all natural. :D You would be surprised to see that these cures can be found right in your house like apple cider vinegar, banana peel or duct tape.

My husband had warts that he just could not get rid of. :( He went to the dermatologist for about 5 consecutive visits where they either froze them with liquid nitrogen or put some kind of chemical on them. Since they were in the nail bed of his fingernails they just wouldn't die. Finally he put bandages with ACV - Apple Cider Vinegar on it each night for about 10 days. He wore rubber kitchen gloves over top so none of the ACV smell got on the sheet. After a week the warts were gone at a small fraction of the cost of 5 dermatology visits. :)

I don't know if someone mentioned it, but duct tape. Yes, duct tape. I used it and worked, I had a wart above me knee and on my big toe. Covered both with a piece of duct tape, and by the second week it was gone. Who knew?

My husband said he thought about using Duct Tape too. He read that you should keep it on for days or weeks and a time and since it was on his fingernails it wasn't a good location for it. As I said before he used Apple Cider Vinegar instead. A lot of people say the duct tape really works

Hi, well cryotherapy often does not work because cold can not destroy the HPV virus responsible for warts in the first place, wart will be removed but often comes back and it costs a lot, so if you have 2-3 that needs to be removed it will demand a deeper pocket. Same thing goes for laser treatment, chemicals I would rather stay clear of, I think we have enough of that already all around us. So that leaves home remedies, some work, some don't and some that work for one person will not work on another cause there are several different kinds of warts as well as the fact that many different strains of HPV cause them. I'm afraid you will have to test several before you have any success. However castor oil based remedies have proved very effective, fig milk is a remedy people in Italy, Spain and Mediterranean use, the trick is you have to pick a fresh fig from a tree and rub in the white, milky juice, repeat twice daily.

Another thing - avoid scratching the warts, you can spread the virus on other parts of your body. And since it is caused by a virus logically you should do something about your immunity, try to take some kind of immunity boosters, Twinlab's Immunity Booster works well, but you need to take it for at least 6 months, naturally regular exercise and proper diet also help boost immunity. Good luck, I hope you can make it go away.

The remedy to get rid of warts is follows:

- Peel the garlic
- Cut the sliver of a garlic the same size and shape of your wart
- Masking tape to hold the garlic
- Keep the garlic on for 15 minutes daily and will start feel the difference in couple of days.

Laser technique is best for removing the warts. Surgical may be dangerous.

Duct tape is a good option to get rid of warts.

Well, I used to have a lot of warts and there are a couple of options. You can use wart bandaids or the liquid that freezes them off. I personally like the bandaids better even though they may take a week or two to get the wart off completely. I don't really like the liquid because it took off some of my skin along with the wart. Either one works, it's been like 6 years and they never came back.
