treatment of warts with folk remedies

For the appearance of warts, two conditions must be met: that there is human papillomavirus infection in the blood of a person (the so-called HPV - human papillomavirus) and that his immunity is extremely weakened.

A drop in the body's immune forces can occur for many reasons, just as infection with a virus can occur in different ways, and the result is the same - the appearance of warts, which you have to fight. Sometimes - folk remedies.

Traditional medicine has a long history, but it often loses in speed and efficiency to modern methods.

The question of the effectiveness of traditional medicine

Treatment of warts with folk remedies was carried out by our ancestors long before official medicine recognized such growths on the skin as a medical problem, and even before the terms cryodestruction and laser exposure appeared. Warts have been treated with various lotions, infusions, baths and compresses, and in the modern world these recipes are still used.

Is this treatment effective?

Not always, and there are several explanations for this:

  • the body of each person is individual: the degree of development of the virus and its type (strain) may be different, so one may not be suitable for such a treatment for warts that helped another;
  • a modern person can have an allergic reaction to any folk-medicine component added to the drug against papillomas, which can lead to aggravation of problems with a build-up;
  • neglected formations that have begun to degenerate into malignant cells do not make sense to remove them using folk methods, since this will not stop the pathological process of developing skin cancer - melanoma.

This is important!Everyone can choose whether to trust alternative medicine. However, it is best to consult a specialist about this, who will suggest the right decision and warn against actions with serious health consequences.
