What are remedies for treating warts at home?

There are various methods of treating warts at home, with varying rates of success. Home remedies that people use include rubbing garlic on them, applying a paste made of castor oil and baking powder, and soaking warts in pineapple juice, but these techniques are not effective. Others believe that using duct tape can help clear up these growths, although evidence does not support this practice.

A better approach to at-home care for warts is to buy over-the-counter products, especially those containing salicylic acid, or using cryotherapy. Something to keep in mind when trying these approaches is that treatment will take time and reapplications. Do not expect the warts to clear up overnight.

Even better than using over-the-counter products is coming in and receiving expert wart treatment from Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists.
