Warts are tumors or growths in the top layer of skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV). When the virus invades this outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin creating the wart.
According to dermatologist Conway Huang, MD, an associate professor of dermatologic surgery and cutaneous laser surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, “HPV is ubiquitous. We all come in contact with it, throughout our lives, such as when shaking hands, turning doorknobs, or typing on keyboards.”
And most people will have at least one common wart sometime in their lives, usually on their hands.
If you have any type of skin wart, it means that you came in contact with a wart-causing virus sometime in the past, though it could have been months ago.
To get rid of them, you don’t need to undergo expensive treatments, but look for the solution in your kitchen. This is probably the cheapest and most effective remedy for warts.
– Apple cider vinegar
– Band-Aid or gauze and first-aid tape
- Using a teaspoon put some drops of apple cider vinegar (preferably organic) on the bandage/gauze.
- Apply the soaked bandage/gauze directly on the wart. Fasten it with first-aid tape.
- Leave it overnight repeating the process the next day.
- Repeat the procedure every day for 5 days or until the wart is completely dry and falls off.
