7 Natural Ways To Get Rid of Warts

Warts can be stubborn little things. There are several different types of warts and while they may not hurt, they can make you feel quite conscious about yourself.

Warts often show up on the soles of your feet or on your fingers and children are quite prone to getting warts. There are plenty of prescription medications you can use to combat warts as well as a medical procedure using nitric oxide to freeze the wart away. However, there are also plenty of home remedies to get rid of warts.

My Own Wart Story:

When I was a kid (10 years old) – I had 120 warts.  I counted them.  It was so embarrassing. 

I had them on all my joints – elbows, knees – everywhere.  The biggest wart of them all (the King Wart I used to call it) was located on my hand near my wrist joint.  Once the King Wart was dead (via the freeze method) – all warts disappeared over the next two weeks.

If you want to ditch the natural methods and for the full chemist versions – these are the ones we recommend:

  1. Wart-Off Stick – I use this for water warts and for skin tags – works a treat! It’s not so good for normal warts and plantar-warts.
  2. Wart-Off Freeze:  Now this stuff is the bomb-diggity – but you have to really freeze the crap out of your warts to get rid of them.  Just like how the Doctor will get rid of them.
  3. Wartner Plantar Wart Removal System.  Plantar warts are really tricky (and painful) to get rid of. This stuff doesn’t hurt as much as freezing them off – but it takes a lot longer.

1. Baking Soda

Seriously, is there anything baking soda cannot do? It’s the perfect cleaner and the perfect remedy for all sorts of aches and ailments, including warts. To use baking soda to cure warts, you will need to simply add baking soda to water and soak the wart in the mixture. Allow the area to dry naturally so that the baking soda remains on the wart and repeat often.

2. Baking Powder and Castor Oil

All out of baking soda? Try mixing baking powder with castor oil until you make a paste. Then place the paste directly onto the wart and cover it with a bandage. Leave the mixture on overnight.

3. Garlic or Onion

Fight nasty warts with garlic. Not only is this the best cure for vampires but also for ugly warts. Simply rub the crushed garlic onto the wart. Onion can also work. You might want to try this one on the weekend or at night, however, to avoid smelling like a pizzeria for the rest of the day.

4. Carrots

If you have a lot of carrots handy, then try this trick. Grate the carrot and add olive oil to the mixture to create a paste. Apply to the wart twice a day for 30 minutes each time. Do for 2-3 weeks.

5. Figs

Alternatively, instead of using carrots, use figs. Do the same method as above for the same time frame.

6. Vitamins A, C or E

Vitamins A, C or E

If you have Vitamin A, C, or E capsules lying around the house, break them open and rub a little of the oil onto the wart. Cover it with gauze or a bandage to ensure the liquid oozes into the wart and kills the virus.

7. Pineapple Juice

Getting Rid of Warts

Try soaking your wart directly into a glass of pineapple juice twice a day for 30 minutes each time. Pineapple has an enzyme that can kill the virus that causes warts. If you find that you have tried everything under the sun and the wart is still not going away, then it might be time to call in the big guns and visit a GP.

A doctor may be able to prescribe you a freezing method to do at home or can freeze the wart off in his office. The treatment usually takes at least three times to work and can be expensive depending on what type of health plan you have.
