Warts appear in all shapes and sizes. Caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), they are highly contagious and while they can appear in anyone of any age, they are more likely to bother children and teenagers.
Nearly all warts are harmless but once they pop up on conspicuous places such as the face or hands, most people will do almost anything to get rid of them.
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.
For patient sufferers, just waiting may also bring success as 65% of warts disappear all by themselves with time.
For those who would like to hurry them along though, homoeopathy can help – and in more ways than one.
Thinking More Deeply about Warts
Warts are often seen as nothing more than a minor nuisance – to remove the wart is to remove the problem. But is this completely true? No, say homoeopaths.
Their presence on top of the skin warns of a deeper weakness or susceptibility that allows them to continue and flourish. While removing the wart creates a blemish-free skin, it does nothing to correct this underlying weakness – the person is still vulnerable to future health problems.
A more holistic approach is needed and this is where homoeopathy excels. By treating the wart as just one of the person’s health problems and prescribing a homeopathic remedy accordingly, widespread improvements are achieved and the underlying weakness repaired.
