Warts are caused by viruses that invade the skin and cause the cells to multiply rapidly, forming raised lumps; unable to kill the viruses, the body walls them off. In susceptible individuals, warts are contagious: touching warts can easily transfer viruses viruses to new sites, and new warts develop.
Common warts are small, horny and flesh coloured or whitish, and most commonly occur on hands; on soles of feet, where they are called verrucas, constant pressure causes them to harden and burrow inwards, making walking quite painful.
Two other types of wart, most common in children, are plane warts (which usually occur in groups, and look like tiny, brownish, fleshy blisters) and molluscum contagiosum (small, pearl-like warts with depressed centres, which seldom occur singularly).
Persistent warts are conventionally treated with wart paint, or can be burnt or frozen off, or dug out.
Warts which form after the age of 45, particularly seborrhoeic warts, which look like large, rough-surface moles should be shown to your GP as soon as possible; they may be completely innocuous, or they may be malignant.
Warts have been treated by homeopathy.
Warts require detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic emedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
