When you develop a wart you want to do nothing else than try to get rid of it. You have three options:
- Surgical removal/prescription drugs
- Over the counter remedies
- Natural treatments
Natural Ways to get Rid of Warts
Here’s the list of natural wart treatments you can easily apply
- Duct Tape
Place a piece of duct tape that’s just big enough to cover it directly on the wart. Leave it there for six days and then pull it off again. Soak the wart in water for a few minutes and then file down the dead skin with a disposable emery board. Replace the emery board after each use. Leave the wart uncovered overnight and then repeat the procedure until the wart is gone.
Crush a garlic clove and place it directly on the wart. Cover it with a bandage. Repeat this procedure every day until the wart falls off. After you remove the bandage you need to soak the wart in water and then file the wart down with an emery board. Use a disposable board so you can drop it in the trash after you used it. Make sure to avoid placing the garlic on healthy skin surrounding the wart. You can cover the healthy skin with petroleum jelly before you apply the garlic onto the wart.
- Vitamin C tablets
Grind up a couple of vitamin C tablets. Make a paste by mixing it with water. Dab the solution on the wart and then cover with a bandage. Repeat this treatment daily until the wart is gone. The tablets have high levels of acid which attacks the wart.
Crush a 1/8th of a medium sized onion and place it directly on the wart. Cover it with a bandage. Repeat this procedure every day until the wart is gone. Soak the wart in water each time after you take the bandage off and then file it down with a disposable emery board. Throw away the board after using it.
Pull a dandelion in your yard. When you break the stem, you can use the sap from the dandelion. Put the sap directly onto the wart. The sap irritates the skin and also contains anti-viral substances. Cover the wart (with the sap on it) with a bandage. Leave it on for 24 hours and then soak the wart in water. File it down with an emery board. Repeat this treatment until the wart is killed.
Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and place it onto the wart and cover it with a bandage. Keep it on for anywhere from a couple of hours to a day. File down the skin with a disposable emery board. Repeat daily until the wart comes off.
- Banana Peel
Cut a piece of banana peel and place it on the wart so the inner part of the banana touches the skin. Cover with a bandage and leave it on overnight. Use a disposable emery board to file down the wart after each treatment. Repeat treatments as necessary until the wart is dead.
Place a piece of pineapple directly on the wart a few times a day. The pineapple contains acids and enzymes which will eventually kill the wart. Repeat the procedure every few hours as necessary until the wart is gone.
Pick a fresh basil leaf and roll it into a ball. Place it over the wart and use a bandage to secure it. Keep it on for a day and then replace it. File down the wart between applications with a disposable emery board.
Place small cuts into an unripe papaya and collect the sap that comes out. Let the sap sit and then mix it with water. Apply directly onto the wart in the morning and at night until the wart is dissolved.

Grate a carrot finely and mix it up with olive oil so it forms a paste. Place that on the wart twice a day for around half an hour. Repeat until the wart dies.
