Removal of warts with celandine - instructions for use

Warts are unaesthetic skin formations of various sizes and locations, the appearance of which is caused by the papillomavirus (it is found in the body of most people). Single small warts usually do not cause much concern, problems begin when they grow, are large, are on the face or in places of constant friction (waist, thighs). The activation of the growth of formations occurs as a result of a decrease in the body's immune defense. Warts look like plaques, nodules, which over time can grow and merge into whole colonies.

The provoking factors, as a result of which warts and papillomas may appear, include:

  • metabolic problems;
  • increased sweating (including as a result of wearing too warm shoes, clothes);
  • poor immunity;
  • the presence of concomitant viral infections in the body.

The good news is that the problem can be easily defeated. If you do not want to resort to the services of doctors (warts are removed with a laser, nitrogen, gas-liquid mixtures), try traditional medicine recipes. The most popular remedy is celandine.

Composition of celandine

Celandine is a plant that belongs to the Poppy family. It is a herbaceous perennial shrub with lyre-shaped leaves of a dark green hue. The flowers are yellow, subsequently replaced by pods with testicles. The most beneficial is the sap of the plant collected during flowering.

using celandine to remove warts

This herb has the following chemical composition:

  • essential oils;
  • natural antibiotics;
  • alkaloids;
  • organic acids;
  • vitamins C and A.

It is these components that determine the healing properties of celandine. The plant is used to fight bacteria, fungi, tumors, relieve pain. Local use of the juice enriches the body with vitamins, strengthens local immunity, destroys the virus inside the wart, and helps burn out the formation. Due to the natural anesthetics that make up the plant, pain is minimal.

Celandine juice is poisonous, so proceed with caution. Do not allow it to come into contact with your skin as it can cause burns. For the treatment of warts, juice is used in its pure form, decoctions, ointments are prepared with its use. After applying the product, the formation on the skin may turn black - no need to worry, this is a normal skin reaction to the death of cellular structures. If the darkening is accompanied by pain, see your doctor - it may be tissue swelling.

Celandine properties for removing warts

Celandine has a bactericidal, disinfecting, cauterizing effect, therefore it eliminates not only a less aesthetic formation, but also the cause of its appearance at the local level. With the help of celandine, you can remove any warts, except those that are in sensitive areas - these are the areas of intimate organs, eyelids. If you have used celandine juice and noticed that the treated area is swollen, has acquired a red tint, consult a doctor - or an allergy has begun, or the remedy simply does not suit you. The plant is not used in the treatment of malignant tumors.

There are several ways to use the plant. The simplest and most effective is to apply juice to the formation, but the solution will be quite concentrated and can cause burns. More gentle options are decoctions, ointments. The juice cannot be taken inside; when processing the skin, be sure to be careful and monitor the reaction.

How to make celandine extract or juice at home?

To make juice from celandine, it is recommended to collect the herb together with the roots. Wash the plants thoroughly and dry them - no moisture should remain. Then twist the fresh grass in a meat grinder to make a gruel - squeeze it through cheesecloth or a thick cloth, pour the juice into dark glass bottles, close with a stopper, leave for a week. After a week, the fermentation processes will begin - open the plug daily to release the gases. After another 7 days, the juice can be used to cauterize the warts.

The extract is prepared from juice with the addition of vodka or alcohol in order to increase the shelf life. Proportions - 1 liter of plant juice per 0. 5 liter of vodka. Store the extract in the refrigerator. Both agents are used to cauterize warts 2 to 5 times a day.

How to make celandine broth

The celandine broth is prepared from fresh herbs - it is pre-washed, dried, poured with boiling water and boiled. For 1. 5 liters of water, take 10 g of grass, boil the broth for 15 minutes. The resulting product is used to lubricate the affected areas or make compresses at night. If you do not have asthma or epilepsy, you can take the decoction internally, one glass 2 to 3 times a day. The effectiveness of a weakly concentrated composition is much lower than that of juice, but there is no likelihood of getting burns.

Homemade celandine oil

Celandine oil is safe and suitable for young children - the oil part creates a thin film on the skin surface that protects the epithelium from burns. To prepare the product, pour a liter jar of dried grass to the top and cover with vegetable oil. The infusion time is 2 - 3 weeks, after which you can make compresses. For long-lasting results, keep the oil on the skin for at least 5 minutes.

Ointment with glycerin and celandine

The ointment is prepared from celandine juice and glycerin ointment. First, prepare the juice according to the scheme described above, then mix it with glycerin in the specified proportions until a thick, homogeneous composition is obtained. The ointment will need to be rubbed into the affected skin, do not overdo it so as not to cause a burn.

Compresses with celandine

Compresses can be done using:

  1. Alcohol tincture of celandine diluted with water.
  2. A decoction made from fresh herbs.
  3. Ointments.
  4. Oils.

The safest option is a decoction, it can be soaked in gauze and left overnight. It is enough to keep the ointment and oil for 10 - 30 minutes, alcohol tincture can also quite aggressively affect the skin, so do not exceed the exposure time and dilute the concentrate with water 1: 1. The alcoholic tincture can be stored in the refrigerator for a year or more, so you always have a product ready to use. The alcohol contained in it has a disinfecting, bactericidal effect, disinfects the skin, but can cause dryness and allergic reactions.

Pharmaceutical celandine application

If you do not want to prepare a remedy for removing warts yourself, use ready-made pharmaceutical preparations. They all have a similar effect and cost. If you can not choose, consult a doctor.

Contraindications and side effects

Celandine juice is a natural, effective, but rather aggressive agent, therefore, it is recommended to make a test for individual tolerance before starting treatment. If the skin is red, swollen, itched, it is better not to use celandine. The plant should be used with caution in childhood.

You should not treat the skin in intimate areas - here it is very delicate, the wart will disappear, but you will almost 100% get a burn. Be sure to lubricate healthy skin near the treatment site with cream before each moxibustion. To increase the effectiveness of the procedure, the affected area is treated with a solution of salt and soda. Keep bottles of celandine juice out of the reach of children, as this product is poisonous and can be fatal if swallowed. Concentrated preparations, undiluted juice, elixir are used very carefully so as not to cause skin burns.

Celandine has long been used for medical purposes and is highly effective, despite its high toxicity. You can easily find or buy it. The herb, when applied topically, has not only a cauterizing effect, but also an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, bactericidal effect. When treating warts on the legs and arms, painful sensations occur extremely rarely, but care should be taken with sensitive areas so as not to cause a burn. Traditional healers are right that celandine is a highly effective folk remedy, but it is difficult to call it safe. So be treated, but remember - the use of poisons requires a competent approach.

We remind you that the sap of the plant should be collected during active flowering - during this time it has maximum efficiency. If you use too much, it can cause severe burns and scarring. To increase the effectiveness of treatment, measures are recommended to strengthen the general immunity.
