Even though they may not be harmful, warts are annoying and unsightly. When you notice you have a wart, you likely will want to get rid of it fast. There are many options to removing warts. Some are better known than others. Electronically removing warts is said to remove the wart completely with just one application. However, some people have some hesitation when using electricity to zap a wart away.
Electronic Wart Removal
An electronic wart removal device sends an electronic frequency to the cell, which physically breaks apart the wart cell, killing the wart after just one three-minute application. However, it may take a month for you to notice a difference because new skin will need to grow over the area. An electronic wart removal device is said to work on all warts, including plantar warts. Using an electronic wart removal device is said to be harmless, and most companies selling this type of device guarantee 100 per cent wart removal with its use.
To use the device, wet the wart with a cotton swab dipped in warm water. It is important to wet only the wart and not the surrounding areas. Turn the device on and hold the probe in your hand. Touch the tip of the probe to the centre of the wart and hold in place for three to five minutes. You may feel a burning sensation, which is normal. If the wart is rather large you may have to perform the process in sections on the wart.
Alternative Wart Removal
Garlic has been used as a natural wart removal for centuries. Before bed, place a piece of garlic on the wart and secure in place using a bandage or medical tape. When you wake up, remove the bandage and garlic and toss them in the trash. Reusing the same bandage or garlic could spread the wart virus. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and clean the area on and around the wart. Repeat this process for seven to 14 days. Within that time, the wart should fall off.
Duct tape is another alternative to wart remove that does not involve harsh chemicals. Place a piece of duct tape directly on top of the wart and leave the tape on the wart for seven days straight. Only remove the tape to change it for a fresh piece. After seven days, remove the duct tape and soak your wart in soapy, warm water. Allow the wart to soak for 15 minutes and then gently scrub it with a pumice stone. Pumice stones can be purchased at health and beauty stores and will exfoliate your skin. Clean the wart and surrounding area with a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol. Leave the duct tape off the wart for one day and then repeat the process until the wart is completely removed.
