A wart is a common infection of the skin. Most warts are not contagious, though plantar warts, which occur on the bottom of the feet, can be caught from walking barefoot in moist areas with heavy foot traffic. Liquid nitrogen or surgical removal are common medical remedies for warts, but homeopathic treatments that use natural, essential plant oils are also effective treatments. Such compounds usually come in liquid form and can be dropped on the tongue or painted directly onto affected skin. Warts should gradually reduce in size until gone over a few weeks' worth of treatment.

Use thuja occidentalis for warts that are soft, fleshy and have a stalk connecting them to your skin. Take one dose of thuja 6C for up to three weeks. You can also paint thuja (in liquid form) directly onto the wart once a day.
Try sepia 6C for blackish warts growing hair. Take one dose every 12 hours for up to three weeks.
Take causticum for warts located on the tips of fingers or the nose. It works effectively on large, jagged warts that are painful and bleed easily. Take one dose of causticum 6C every 12 hours for up to three weeks.
Antimonium crudum works well with callus-like warts. Take one dose every 12 hours for up to three weeks. You may also directly paint the liquid onto warts once a day.
Take Newton's Warts solution for a comprehensive, homeopathic treatment for all types of warts. Take a dosage of three to six drops on the tongue daily or paint it directly onto warts no more than twice per day.
