Homeopathic Treatment for Warts

Homeopathic Treatment for Warts

Lavina, a beautiful young woman in her mid 20s came to us for treatment of genital warts. Feeling angry and betrayed for getting genital warts from her ex-boyfriend, she was also worried for passing them to her husband. What also concerned her was the prospect of passing this genetic taint onto her children and causing them health problems.

As many other youngsters of today would do, she had conducted hours of research and explored several options for eliminating the warts. By the time this young woman thought of taking homeopathic treatment for warts, she had already begun the painful procedure of having the warts burned off, which she thought was the only way to get rid of them.


  • Warts can spread easily when one tries to get rid of them by shaving, or using other means where only a part of the wart is removed.
  • A half-removed wart is likely to spread the virus to other parts of the body and also to other people.

So, before talking about why homeopathic medicines for warts are the best treatment to treat them from the root, let us first understand what exactly warts are and how are they caused. Also, know why methods like burning them or shaving them would cause you more harm than help.


Warts, or verruca, are small growths on the skin. They are generally painless. Warts are common blemishes. Children and young adults are more prone to develop warts.

Warts are contagious by nature; they can spread easily from one person to another. They also tend to spread easily from one part of the body to another in the same individual.

Warts are caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV). Though largely harmless, warts can be quite disfiguring at times — a source of cosmetic and social embarrassment.

There are several types of warts; some of the common variants are flat warts (small and only slightly raised above the skin), filiform warts (long, narrow, filamentous), plantar warts (painful variety that occur on the soles), genital warts or condyloma (highly contagious; sexually transmitted variety of warts).

Genital warts are growths on, or around, the genital area — the vagina, penis or rectum. They usually affect sexually active people (between ages 19 and 30). People who have multiple sexual partners and a history of sexually-transmitted disease (STD) are most vulnerable. Genital warts, caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), are small, benign (non-cancerous) growths. They can spread through any type of sexual contact, including oral sex. They can also spread from a mother to her foetus, if she becomes pregnant, or gives birth while infected by the virus.

How are warts diagnosed?

  • Your homeopathic doctor will be able to easily recognise a wart
  • He/she will conduct a physical examination to ascertain the type of warts
  • He/she will also elicit your medical and family history
  • In some instances, routine tests may be ordered.
  • Safe homeopathic medicines for warts will be recommended.


Self-treatment is not recommended, nor is fiddling, or trying to remove a wart.

Homeopathy contends that such methods like burning warts is not an appropriate treatment for the condition, because it does not address the condition underlying their appearance, but only takes away the surface manifestation. The inner disease could now continue to develop at a potentially faster rate, because there would now be no outward evidence of its presence, and no way to monitor its progress since the external eruption was being interfered with.


The homeopathic treatment for warts does not suppress symptoms, but tries to eradicate the ‘root’ cause. Homeopathy can turn what looks like an unfortunate and embarrassing situation, such as warts, into an opportunity to treat an individual holistically- to bring about better, also greater health and well-being at all levels.

Picture this. With numerous small, fleshy, skin-coloured growths on palms, fingers, and toes, 32-year-old Kartik was suffering from multiple warts since the two years when he approached us for treatment. The warts were gradually increasing in size and number. For the past few weeks, these warts had also become tender. Kartik had been using ointments prescribed by his dermatologist, but these did not help him at all. He had also undergone cauterisation once with recurrence of the warts.

Of late, Kartik was also going through a lot of work-related stress. The workload, deadlines and pressure were just too much, he said. Embarrassment was becoming an issue for him too on account of his warts. He had noticed that people avoided shaking hands with him. Based on his complaints and history, we put him on Causticum, a homeopathic remedy. In just six weeks, all warts on his fingers, palms, and toes disappeared completely. He could now work without any discomfort, or embarrassment.

The maximum success stories one hears of in homeopathy are related to the treatment of warts. Almost every homeopath will recall success stories to draw attention to his triumphs in the treatment of warts.


  • Avoid picking at warts, since they spread more rapidly due to scratching
  • Avoid shaving areas that have warts; this will keep the virus from spreading
  • In case of children, cover the warts with an adhesive bandage; this will keep them from picking the warts
  • Children must be encouraged to wash hands properly after they finish playing
  • Keep the affected area dry since warts prosper in a moist environment
  • If you have accidentally touched someone else’s warts (or, even your own), wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water
  • If you or your partner has genital warts, abstain from sexual activity since genital warts are highly contagious.
