Warts are one of the most common skin problems that can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most commonly found on the hands and feet. They can grow in clusters or singly and have a rough skin surface; sometimes a black spot is visible in the middle of it.

The human papillomavirus (HPV) causes warts. The virus can be picked up from someone else, or may spread to another part of your own body through cuts or scratches.


There are many different kinds of warts. The most common include common warts, flat warts, and plantar warts. In most cases, warts tend to disappear within a period of 6 months to 2 years. But as they can be source of embarrassment, you can get rid of them sooner by using simple home remedies.


Here are the top 10 home remedies for warts.

(Out of the 10, we have covered 3 highly effective home remedies in this video as well.)


1. Garlic

Garlic has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties that fight viral infections.

  1. Crush a garlic clove and apply it on the affected area. Cover it with a bandage.
  2. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then wash the area thoroughly.
  3. Repeat this treatment twice daily for about a week. The caustic effect of the garlic will cause the wart to blister and fall off. Larger warts may take longer to heal.

If you do not like the smell of garlic, you can take garlic capsules three times a day for a week.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar also has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

  1. Dilute two parts apple cider vinegar in one part water.
  2. Apply this solution on the affected area using a clean cotton ball. Cover the area with a bandage or tape.
  3. Repeat this simple remedy for a few weeks. Within a few days, the warts will start turning black. Soon after, the warts will fall off leaving a small mark that will gradually vanish.

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is highly acidic in nature and hence can help wear the wart away and also fight the virus itself.

  1. Crush two to three vitamin C tablets in a bowl.
  2. Add a little water and mix it to form a fine paste.
  3. Rub the paste on your warts and cover the area with a bandage. Initially it will cause some burning sensation, but it will quickly go away.

4. Hot Water Soak

Soaking warts in slightly hot water will soften them and help them to heal quickly. A hot water soak will also help fight the virus and prevent infection. Plain hot water is fine, but some white vinegar or Epsom salt can also be added to make the treatment more effective.

Before following this remedy, slough the affected skin area with an emery board or pumice stone for best results. Also, make sure the water is not too hot to prevent burning your skin.

5. Baking Soda

Due to the antiseptic and strong anti-inflammatory properties present in baking soda, it can help combat viruses that cause warts.

  • Mix one teaspoon of white vinegar with baking soda to make a thick paste. Dab the paste on your warts twice a day (once in the morning and once at night).
  • You can also mix baking soda and castor oil together to form a paste. Apply it to the wart and cover the area with a bandage. Leave it on overnight and remove the bandage the next morning. Repeat this remedy for several days, until the wart is gone.

6. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that can be very effective in treating warts.

  1. Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf.
  2. Apply the fresh aloe vera gel on your wart using a clean cotton ball. Then use a bandage or tape to hold the cotton ball over the wart.
  3. Repeat the process twice daily for two weeks.

If you do not have an aloe vera plant at home, you can buy aloe vera gel at the drug store and rub it on the wart several times a day.

  1. I have like a billion warts and have had them for years. I’ve tried shots, freezing, pills, that brush on stuff, etc. and nothing ever worked until………………APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Someone suggested it online, so I tried it. For about a month now, I’ve been pouring some vinegar into a little tupperware, cutting up pieces of cotton pads, soaking the pads in the vinegar, and then duct taping them to my warts overnight. Four warts have already disappeared. Granted, they were newer warts, but even the older ones are reducing in size. It is amazing. NOTE: The vinegar can irritate your skin-especially if you put too much duct tape on. Someone online suggested putting vaseline on the surrounding skin. I haven’t tried that yet, but it sounds like a good idea.

  2. Hi , i want to share it because i was suffering from them for almost 12 years of my life. no medicine no doctor helped me out. But after so many year i have given a try to garlic and aleovera. many gone and other are about to. I am so happy and want to use it. i have spent more than anything on medicines. they never worked for me. Trust me use Garlic. (it will work 200 %)

  3. I read that covering a wart for 6 days with duck tape, remove duck tape and file wart with a nail file, then cover the wart again with duck tape for an additional 6 days,when I remove duck tape it should be gone.

    I’m on day 6, I just took the tape off and filed it with a new file. I looks like the picture above where they point out the dark red spots- human papillomavirus and its flat, even with the skin now.
    I’m willing to say this works, amazing.
    Good thing my wart is/was on my leg, not sure I could walk around with a piece of duck tape stuck to my face for 12 days. 🙂

  4. i mine since I was a kid done operation but it seems to resurfacing again very painful and itching sometimes but advise me where to find the cider apple is it bought from chemist?

  5. Thanks to garlic.. I was having a wart in my right hand and it was so irritating.. I tried many ointments but the wart remained still.. After using garlic clove for a week , it fall off.. ??

  6. How can you get rid of a large wart on a pens. My partner has had a large wart on his pens. He has had this as long as I can remember .it’s not genital wart. It looks like many warts clustered together. It has never bothered him..But I know he would like to get rid of it..Any recommendations?

  7. Comment:I just visited a doctor a week ago.he used liquid nitrogen and the small warts are swelling.should i prick them??….but with the bigger warts I can feel some pain but they are still intact

  8. I had a wart on my hand. I showed to my GP (Dr.) maybe 10 years ago, he checked it with his eye piece and said it was not skin cancer. Then I tried licking it as soon as I woke up in the morning (before you eat or drink) now it’s gone some years ago. Hardest part is remembering to lick it

  9. cover the wart with duct tape.
    leave it on for 1 week.
    Take it off. If not completely gone,
    put a fresh piece of duct tape on again.
    it should be all gone in 10 days.
