Treatment and how to avoid all types of skin warts.

Treatment of warts.
With the exception of plantar warts (which are flat), warts are always raised bumps. Where there is constant contact, they can cause discomfort and even pain. Venereal (genital) warts are single or clusters of soft cauliflower-like growths. Warts appear more frequently in adolescents who are experiencing hormonal changes, especially between the ages of 12 and 16, and 70% between 10 and 39.

Primary types of skin Warts.
1.Contagious warts
Also called viral warts, these are benign skin warts (verruca vulgaris), which are also called common warts, and may be found on the hands, arms, face, or body. These hard, irregular, or round warts can be dark or flesh-colored and may range in size from a pinhead to a bean. They most frequently occur on the hands, face, knees, and scalp, where the skin is in friction with clothing, etc. They can also occur on the larynx (voice box) and produce hoarseness. They can be spread by picking, trimming, or touching them. On the face, they can be spread by shaving.
There are three types of common warts:
  I.Flat warts: These are flat-topped and flesh-colored. They appear on the wrists, backs of       the hands, face, and may itch.
  II.Digitate warts: Are dark-colored growths with fingerlike projections.
  III.Filiform warts: Are long, slender growths appearing on the eyelids, armpits, or neck. They often appear on people who are overweight and middle-aged.

2. Plantar warts:
This is another type of verrucum, which appears on the sole of the foot. These are actually benign epithelial tumors caused by a virus.

3. Venereal warts
These warts (condylomatum acuminata) may be found on the vulva and penis. Venereal warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), of which there are more than 35 types. These warts are pink, cauliflower-shaped growths on the genitals of men and women. Genital warts on a woman can change into cancer of the cervix or genital area. They should be removed! One study showed they can increase risk of cervical cancer by 200 percent! The incubation period for genital warts is generally 3 months. It can spread to others even before the person realizes he or she has it. Do not have sexual intercourse until the warts are eliminated.
Physicians use liquid nitrogen, corrosive salicylic acids, and surgery to remove warts.

Treatment/getting rid of warts
The usual methods of removing warts (surgery, acids, burning, electrotherapy, or freezing) often results in their reappearance. The underlying causes should be eliminated. Improve the diet. And eat foods high in vitamin A, B complex, C, and zinc. Deficiencies in all four are related to an increased incidence of viral infections. Also increase the sufur-containing amino acids in the diet, such as are found in asparagus, citrus fruits, garlic, and onions. Eat raw garlic.

Since everyone seems to get better using a different treatment, here are lots of them. It is said that no form of wart treatment is 100% effective.

1.Place thin sections of garlic on the wart. Try to avoid touching the garlic to normal tissue. Hold it in place with cloth and tape, and leave it there overnight. Do this for 2 or 3 nights. Within a week the wart will fall off.

2.Apply castor oil to the wart for half an hour, 3 times a day for 3 weeks.

3.Cover the wart with honey for 15 days.

4.Put 1 drop muriatic acid (the commercial name for hydrochloric acid) on the wart once a day, for 8 days.

5.Dissolve as much sodium carbonate (washing soda) in water as will stay in solution. Swab this into the warts for 2 minutes, 4 times a day, and let it dry in the air. Very large warts have responded to this.

6.Mix castor oil and baking soda into paste and apply to the wart, cover, and keep on all night. Do not pick at it, but let it slough off within 3-6 weeks.

7.Apply an iron formula, such as ironite or black walnut tincture.

8.Apply powdered vitamin C, as paste, and cover.

9.Soak the wart in a concentrated saltwater solution: 1 ½ tsp. of salt to ½ cup of water equals a 30% solution. Soak the wart for 20 minutes, 2-3 times a day for a few weeks.

10.Soaking the wart for 30-90 minutes twice a week in hot water (113o-118o F.) eliminated half warts in one study.

11.Here are several other helpful applications: green fig juice; that is, juice from ripe barely ripe figs will destroy warts. Milkweed sap applied several times a day. Fresh grated celandine juice. Cut a raw potato, rub it on, and repeat several times a day for several weeks. Chickweed juice. Sassafras oil. Marigold juice. Green papaya juice. Aloe Vera. Onion and salt compress. The juice of white cabbage. Wheat germ oil. Fresh pineapple juice. Mashed cashew nut. Spread the juice of sour apple on it. In England, the juice from a dandelion stalk is applied. Houseleek (Hen and chickens) is a succulent rock-garden plant with thick, fleshy leaves containing a large amount of supermalate of calcium which eliminates warts. Watercress juice. Caster bean oil. The FDA has approved salicylic acid, which is abundant in willow, for wart removal.

12.For plantar warts (warts on the bottom of the foot), apply a plantain poultice (the leaf itself) to the wart. Another method is to place the inner side of a fresh piece of the inner white part of banana peel over the wart and hold it there with tape or rub it on 2-4 times a day for 5-7 days. Change daily after washing the entire area. Once a week the thickened outer horny layer is removed. Maximum time for complete disappearance of wart is 6 weeks, with no recurrence within 2 years.

13.To prevent warts fro forming, reduce the amount of protein foods you eat. Most people eat too much.
