A wart is identified by a small, rough growth resembling a cauliflower or a solid blister which appear in all shapes and sizes. Often seen on an individual’s hands or feet, they can occur in other locations. Warts, although embarrassing and painful, are mostly harmless and are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). They are highly contagious and easily spread to other parts of the body and to others also. Sometimes, they occur around the genitals. In women, genital warts can lead to cervical cancer..
Warts typically are asymptomatic except when they occur on weight-bearing areas. Depending on the location of the warts, five major types of warts include common warts, plantar warts, flat warts, filiform warts, and periungual warts.
Conventional treatments offer to freeze, burn, inject, shave, electrocute, poison, or dig the poor wart out but with varying degrees of success. Some can cause scarring while with others, the wart may regrow. Homeopathy helps builds immunity to the HPV virus and effectively reduce the warts over time.
