Natural Plantar Wart Remedies

Plantar wart remedies are for the man in the street to help remove the small growths that are caused by the human papillomaviruses (HPV's).

Plantar warts as opposed to the common wart is found on the underside of the toes and on the sole of the feet, whereas the common wart can appear anywhere on the body, but most commonly on the hands, fingers, elbows , face and the skin around the nails.





The very best way to prevent picking up a plantar wart infection,which is also one of our very successful plantar wart remedies (prevention is better than cure) is to never ever walk barefoot, especially around a communal pool, or even the shower in the gym.

This virus is contagious and is picked up via direct contact through cuts or wounds in the skin.

There are some differences between common warts and plantars warts in that;

  • Plantar warts can be painful, because they develop on areas that carry your weight.

  • They are bumpy hard growths that can resemble calluses.

  • They have a hard core.

  • Plantar warts tend not to spread to other parts of the body.


There are also other baddies that can effect your feet like:

  • hookworm

  • athlete's foot

  • cutaneous mycosis (of the nail)

  • sand fleas

Most medical procedures for removal of plantar warts is to burn the skin with chemicals or a laser beam.

NO THANKS! I would rather try these natural and simple plantar wart remedies first.




Natural Folklore Plantar Wart Remedies.

It has been passed down through the years, that two of the best natural removers of warts originates from our own bodies.

Ok, this is a family thing, Fraser who is my partner in life is adament that if you take your very first pee of the morning and soak your feet in the liquid for 5 minutes daily the warts will disappear naturally, this worked for him.

And the second natural remedy is to take some early morning saliva (before your breakfast and any liquids)and then by rubbing this saliva onto the wart every morning, they will soon disappear.



Aloe Vera

Now this works!

My Mother used to be plagued with Plantar Warts and she grew Aloe Vera in our garden specifically for getting rid of her warts.

She used to use the gel directly from the plant and then bandage her foot up. This was repeated daily until the warts disappeared.

In uses for herbs it can be seen that this plant has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties and is also a natural anti-inflammatory.



Bananas

All you need to do in this remedy is to peel a banana (eat the banana) and then strap the peel to the sole of the foot with the inside of the peel against the sole.

Why this works, no one knows, but there are many adament people out there who say that it does.

As matter of interest it is also said that a defiency in potassium can cause warts?? This is not true as warts are caused by a virus.



Comfrey

Comfrey is a herb which has been used for centuries for many different things and amongst them is, that when applied topically, it can remove plantar warts.

Check out preparing herbs and how you can make a comfrey cream to rub on your warts. Comfrey contains allantoin, which helps in healing, and it also helps in softening the skin.

You can also try tree tea oil topically for the same reasons


And the Last Word

Try taking some Vitamin E supplements which helps improve circulation and promotes tissue repair.

Vitamin A can also help in that it plays a number of important roles in the body, one of them been that it is required for normal cell division and growth.

Ensure that you are not suffering from a zinc deficiency which is believed to be one of the things causing acne, but at the same time, it also helps increase immunity against viruses.

Did you know that......

Tomatoes are not just a tasty ingredient for your salad, they are also very good for you.

Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene, which is responsible for their red color, and also lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease and protecting against strokes.

It has also now been found that this antioxidant lycopene also seems to have stress-reducing properties.

A cup of raw tomatoes contains 4.6mg of lycopene and the recommended daily amount of the antioxident is 6 to 15mg.
