(NaturalNews) Warts are caused by viruses that infect the top layer of the skin, and herbs and homeopathic remedies can be used to treat them. Most warts do not cause any pain, but they can become sore or itchy. They can appear on most areas of the body, including the feet, hands, lips, or genitals. The types of warts include common warts, flat warts, genital warts, and plantar warts. Home remedies, including vitamins, homeopathy, and herbal remedies can safely and effectively remove warts.

The viral cause of warts is the human papilloma virus, known as HPV. Warts are contagious but can take many months or years to grow and become visible on the skin. Warts spread from person to person and from one part of the body to another. Those with low immunity are more susceptible. Breaks in the skin also open up pathways for infection.

Garlic Patch
By covering the wart with garlic, the wart is deprived of oxygen and also infused with the oil of the garlic, a known antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal. The garlic can be taped over the wart before bed and replaced nightly. This can take a few weeks, but eventually, the wart will begin to turn black before falling off.

Vitamin A
For external warts on the genitals, vitamin A has been shown to be effective. Vitamin A applied twice daily can be used, along with other herbs such as a tincture of Echinacea, to safely remove warts.

Thuja occidentalis
The homeopathic remedy Thuja occidentalis has been used for two centuries to remove warts. Made from the Arbor Vitae tree, Thuja is sold over-the-counter in many health food and specialty stores. This homeopathic remedy will work for most warts and for people with warts on many parts of their bodies. It is not recommended for plantar warts, however, but is useful for bleeding or painful warts other than on the feet. Warts have been shown to reduce in size and disappear when treated with Thuja in 6c potency taken daily.

Ruta Graveolens
Ruta graveolens is a homeopathic remedy that is useful for plantar warts. Made from the Rue or Bitterwort plant, it can be taken, like Thuja, in 6c potency daily. This remedy is especially useful for smooth, painful plantar warts.

Green Tea
Drinking green tea helps remove warts. This is because tea contains antioxidants that help boost immune function. Made from the Camellia sinensis plant, green tea extract can be purchased as a concentrated nutritional supplement as well. The recommended dosage to boost immunity is 2500 to 500 mg daily.
