Get rid of warts with homeopathy
Did you know that skin warts are common worldwide? Well, these affect about 10% of the population. (Source: NCBI) Warts are typical skin growths that appear on the surface of the skin in the form of small, rough, hard bumps. These can occur anywhere on the body. But these commonly appear on the hands and feet.
Causes of warts
Warts occur when you’re infected by the human papillomavirus (HPV). It enters the body if there is any slight damage present in the skin. It affects the skin cells. The rapid growth of cells that occurs on the outer layer of the skin results in warts.
Warts typically contain tissues that bleed easily. This bleeding allows the infection to spread further. Different strains of HPV lead to the development of warts on specific parts of the body. Some of these are extremely contagious and spread easily from skin-to-skin contact.
Certain factors can increase the risk of getting an infection. These include:
- The use of public showers
- Multiple sexual partners
- Autoimmune disorders that weaken the immune system
Symptoms of warts
Symptoms of warts can differ from mild to moderate or can be severe, depending upon the infected strain. Warts are typically painless but might cause pain when touched. These usually appear either in single numbers or multiple growths.
Warts can be the same colour as that of the skin or be darker or red. They differ in appearance and are rough, smooth or flat in appearance. These produce an itching, burning sensation or irritation in one’s skin. Warts tend to ooze moisture or bleed.
Homeopathic treatment for warts
Skin warts can be treated very safely and effectively with homeopathy. A recent study of homeopathy treatment for different types of warts found that 18 of 19 people with plantar warts (the warts that occur on the soles of the feet) were cured in, on average, of 2.2 months.
