Warts are benign tumors of the skin that occur individually or as clusters on various parts of the body. Preventing warts from spreading is a tough task as warts are a viral occurrence and viruses are not treatable with antibiotics.
However, some methods of prevention or removal can be employed to fight warts:
• Vitamin A capsules are found to be a helpful remedy. In addition, cod liver oil, which contains 25,000 IU of vitamin A, can be rubbed on the wart at least once a day.
• A paste of vitamin C tablets mixed with water, applied on the wart and bandaged is known to kill the virus that causes warts through high acidity levels.
• Wart prevention and removal cream contains the ingredient salicylic acid which softens a wart within 10 minutes of direct application.
• Medicated foot powder helps to keep the feet dry and to prevent warts.
Also, open sandals and shoes, as compared to closed ones, help prevent excessive foot moisture that leads to the development and spreading of warts.
