Warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and appear as lumps of skin. They appear when the top layer of the skin is infected, which creates a wart that can look really ugly.
We are all susceptible to warts, but the biggest risk lies within children, teenagers and people that have a weak immune system. Warts can appear in different shapes and forms and they can grow on different body areas.
It is important to remember that those infected with the virus can transfer it to someone else, usually if their blood comes in contact with a razor, towel or other personal care items and someone else uses them afterwards.
Natural Remedies for Removing Warts
Science has developed ways of removing warts, but we also know that there are natural ways of removing them, and some have proven quite effective.
Improve Your Immune System

It is hard for viruses, infections and bacteria to penetrate a strong immune system, which is why you should consider improving it. You can do that by exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and using immune boosters like cat’s claws, turmeric, zinc, vitamins, olive leaf, elderberry, astragalus etc.
