Seborrheic warts, also known as seborrheic keratosis, are a harmless skin condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, the growths are not cancerous and there is no pain or itching. There is no treatment for seborrheic warts or any ways to prevent them from forming. In some cases, the warts clear up on their own. Home remedies are a natural way to get rid of them.

Liquid Nitrogen

In most cases, liquid nitrogen can be applied to the wart with a cotton swab or other applicator, DermaDoctor reports. The area becomes swollen, and a blister may form. The cold nitrogen freezes the skin growth, which then falls off within 2 to 4 weeks.

Glycolic Acid or Lactic Acid

DermaDoctor also points out that you can exfoliate seborrheic warts with glycolic acid or lactic acid, which help break down the wart's skin layers over time. You can purchase small containers of glycolic acid and lactic acid in various concentrations at beauty supply stores. Start with maybe a 10- to 15-percent concentration. Use caution when using these acids because they can burn the skin if they are left on for too long.

Wart Remover

Over-the-counter wart remover may help remove seborrheic warts. Medicine Online suggests that you apply it to the skin growths on a regular basis for a few weeks. Over time, the growths get smaller and fall off.
