Many people, both men and women, develop warts on their bodies at some point in their lives, especially where there is most friction with the skin.
Warts are those annoying little “balls” that can form around the neck, near the armpits, or anywhere the skin rubs quite continuously. You may think it’s impossible, but you can remove those warts.
What are skin tags?
The skin tag is a soft, skin-colored growth that is attached to your skin through a small piece of tissue called a stalk. Cutaneous tags do not appear to be the result of skin cancer, and cannot become skin cancer.
However, sometimes they can be painful and cause occasional complications if they become too large.
Skin tags usually appear as we age, may be inherited, and may be triggered by pregnancy rather than direct contact with another affected person. It is not contagious, your own body produces it.
So, what are warts?
Contrary to skin tags, warts are contagious. These bumps are just small lesions that appear on the skin of our body and are most common on the face, hands, feet, genitals and armpits. They are caused by the human papillomavirus. It can appear in different shapes and sizes.
This virus can be transmitted very easily through lesions that we have on our skin, although it can also appear due to a deficiency in our immune system that allows the development of the virus.
Each body reacts to infection differently, which means not everyone who is infected with the virus develops warts.
The best solution is to see a doctor to examine you and determine what is best for you. However, there are natural treatments to get rid of them without harming your body.
How to get rid of warts and skin tags naturally?
A remedy that will help you to get rid of warts and skin tags safely and naturally, by using apple vinegar, which natural acids act by destroying the tissue without damaging the skin around it.
1. Apple cider vinegar
You will need:
– A toothpick
– Apple Cider vinegar
– Medical tape
1. Clean the skin around the warts using warm water and neutral soap.
2. Dry thoroughly.
3. Carefully scratch the warts with a toothpick.
4. Soak a piece of cotton in the vinegar.
5. Place the cotton wool on the warts by taping them to the wounds.
6. Leave the cotton wool on overnight and, in the morning, remove the bandage and clean it with plenty of water.
Do this 2-3 times a day. Typically, after two weeks the wart will change color and fall off.
2. Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera is fantastic for skin care. It’s gel is quite sticky, so you can easily apply it to the affected area every day until you remove the tag that is bothering you.
Perhaps you don’t know this, but among all the properties that garlic hides is its ability to “burn” the skin, something really valuable when it comes to making warts disappear.
That’s why you should only apply garlic to the affected area, avoiding contact with the healthy skin around it to prevent burns or redness.
Also, you should first wash the area with water and neutral soap so that the warts are clean.
Next, apply the garlic to the sliced or crushed wart to create a paste and secure its position with the help of a plaster or bandage.
Keep the garlic in contact with the skin for a couple of hours. Repeat this process daily until the wart is gone.
4. Tea tree oil
This wonderful oil has been used in many skin treatments for hundreds of years. To use it correctly, damp a cotton ball in a couple of drops of this oil and rub it gently over the affected area until you see all the humidity from the cotton ball disappear.
You should get rid of any bumps if you perform this process twice a day.
Ginger has powerful antioxidants that will help you fight HPV (human papillomavirus). In addition, ginger is also an anti-viral, directly fighting the papillomavirus itself.
To remove your warts, you will first need to scratch a little ginger root. Then, you boil the scratches in water to make a kind of tea. Drink the tea once it has cooled down enough to fight the wart from inside your body.
Another way to use ginger can be by creating a paste and applying it to the affected area.
6. Castor oil and baking soda paste
This oil is amazing. Although it is rather bitter, it has many medicinal properties, and can even make hair grow stronger.
If we mix it with some baking soda to form a paste and apply it to the desired area, we will manage to eliminate any skin papilloma in about 2-4 weeks.
