The best treatments for planters warts need to get rid of the roots of the wart. As long as they are alive, the wart will continue to grow and become very painful to walk on. A natural remedy will help ease the pain, get rid of them and as a result, keep them from infecting other people. These warts are a type of skin infection caused by a virus.
One natural treatment uses the gel from the aloe vera plant leaves. If you don’t have a plant, you can buy aloe vera gel in the store without any added ingredients. The anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties of aloe vera will kill the warts. Each day it’s important to wash the area where the wart is and dry it well. Tape a cotton ball with the aloe vera gel on it over the wart. Do this on a daily basis until the wart turns black and falls off.
An effective home remedy that works quite well for planters warts is apple cider vinegar. There are two ways to do this. Place a cotton ball soaked in vinegar over the wart and put duct tape over it. You can take it off in the day if you want. Once the wart turns black, it will fall off by itself.
After two or three days of putting vinegar on the wart, scrape off the top with a knife. The little black dots that you will see are the roots of the wart. Remove the skin around the roots with a needle, and remove them one at a time with a pair of tweezers. The wart will totally disappear when you pull out the last black root.
Let’s look at two easy home remedies to get rid of these warts. Clear fingernail polish is the first one. Coat the wart with it, and wait for it to fall off.
This is the second easiest planters warts remedy. A little girl got plantar warts on her foot and it was very painful for her to walk. Her mother took her to the doctor and was amazed at the doctor’s recommendation. He told her to put peanut butter on the bottom of her foot and cover the warts with it. Then she was to take her outside and let the dog lick it off. According to this doctor, the dog’s saliva kills the roots of warts. Her little girl thought it was great fun and laughed the whole time. The amazing thing was, it worked!
The medical solution for removing planters warts is to freeze them off or remove them surgically. Either way is quite painful and they seldom go away permanently. Choosing a natural plantar wart treatment is the wisest way to go. Once the wart turns black and falls off, it won’t come back.
