The Brahman physicians of India treat warts with

castor oil and garlic, which is also effective in the

removal of corns. Castor oil contains a large quantity

of vitamin A, which is known to be effective in

treating skin ailments in general. And raw garlic

irritates the skin just enough to cause the offending

virus to be attacked and destroyed by the body's

immune system. You can also try taping a slice of

garlic to the wart, but be sure to first protect the

surrounding skin with petroleum jelly.

 

The North American yellow cedar is considered to be

the "tree of life" by many American Indian tribes

because of its many uses. For warts they make an

ointment called thuja from the leaves and twigs. When the ointment is first applied, the wart may swell, and thus appear to be larger. But it will soon dry up and shrink away. If you use this treatment, change the dressing twice daily. An infusion can also be made from this plant and used as a wash for infectious skin diseases such as scabies and impetigo. If you add comfrey leaf and root to the wash, it will help prevent scarring. Comfrey contains soothing mucilage and allantoin, which promotes healing.

 

Massage warts with caster oil twice a day and the corns will peel off in layers and leave soft, smooth skin, and they will soften.

 

The Pennsylvania Dutch removed warts by rubbing the white part of half a raw potato on the wart. According to folklore, the piece of potato was buried after use, or the cure was not effective.
