A wart is also called verruca vulgaris. Warts usually occur on all fours. About 50% of all warts disappear within 2 years without treatment. Warts are contagious, so if you see a wart coming, you should get it treated soon.
You have different types of warts:
The common wart (Verruca Vulgaris); around, cauliflower-like growth
The foot wart (Verruca Plantaris); occurs on the sole of the foot
The flat wart (Verruca Plana); a few millimetres in size, is common on the face, arms and legs
Water wart (Mollusca Contagiosa); takes place through intensive skin contact
Condyloma Acuminatum); occurs mainly in adults on the lower body
People who have slightly less resistance are prone to warts. If a development takes place, it can take about half a year. The virus ( the human papillomavirus, HPV ) can spread through swimming pools, towels that are also used by other people, showers in a dressing room of a sports club, etc. Therefore good hygiene is very important. Only when an opening in the skin is made by, for example, shaving, nail-biting, planing or eczema can warts arise so that if you come into contact with that virus, a wart develops on the skin.
Most warts disappear within 2 years without having had a treatment. Below are a few tips for treating a wart:
2x daily with the inside of a peel of a broad bean rub against the wart
Spray twice daily clear nail polish on the wart, within 2 weeks they fall off without pain
Rub a cotton ball with olive oil on the wart, leave for 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water
Wringing warts with the sap of the stem of a sunflower
A plaster with honey on the warts of young children
Rub a plaster with Vaseline and brown sugar and put on the wart
Apply a plaster with pull ointment on the wart
Rub the toothpaste on the wart and let it sit overnight
Let it be polished to the doctor
If a wart has been successfully treated, the wart cannot come back and it is permanently removed.
