There are many treatments to remove warts from the skin, in this post we will explain how Aloe Vera can help you to remove this type of skin alterations, in the most natural and less aggressive way for our skin.
In Bienestar y Belleza Market we will explain why warts appear, what different types exist and how to remove them naturally with Aloe Vera.
Why do warts appear?
Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Warts are not usually dangerous, so their removal is simply for aesthetic reasons, although they can sometimes be annoying, depending on the area where they are located.
Warts appear when our immune system is weakened, so it is also advisable to strengthen the immune system. Aloe Vera can help you to achieve a much stronger immune system. Aloe Vera juice is a superfood that has multiple vitamins and minerals that will boost your immune system to the maximum, decreasing the possibility of contracting the HPV virus and therefore completely preventing the appearance of warts on the skin.
On the other hand, to strengthen the immune system, it is very important to lead a healthy lifestyle, with a healthy, balanced diet and regular sport to stay in good shape.
Although warts are not dangerous, when they appear it is advisable to check them to see if they are evolving correctly, otherwise we recommend a visit to a dermatologist for a diagnosis and recommended treatment. Often, these skin conditions can be very uncomfortable and painful, so they should be checked frequently to keep track of their evolution. However, we should always be on the lookout for complications that indicate that the warts are not evolving favourably, such as for example
- Pain in the area where the wart is located.
- Variation in the colour or size of the wart
- Outbreaks of warts in genital areas
- Difficulty in removing them.
Before starting treatment for this skin condition, it is important to see a specialist to diagnose your situation, assess you and recommend a treatment that is tailored to your skin.
Types of warts
The types of warts are differentiated depending on the area where they appear and the shape of the wart. According to these two criteria we can classify them into five categories.
Common warts: These types of warts are those that appear in areas such as the hands, on the fingers or knuckles. They appear on the face, forehead and legs and are usually brown or pinkish in colour.
Subungual and periungual warts: These warts are present in the area under the fingernails and toenails. They are usually very uncomfortable and if they crack they can be very painful.
Plantar warts: These are found on the soles of the feet and are characterised by their growth towards the inside of the skin.
Genital warts: Present on the thighs, pubic area and genitals, also known as condyloma. These warts require special attention as they may have been caused directly by HPV, so we recommend that they are checked by a professional. HPV is highly contagious and increases the chances of cervical cancer in women.
How to remove warts with Aloe Vera
As we have already explained, warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), so they can be found anywhere on the body, but they usually appear in the most sensitive areas, such as the neck or thighs and in areas that are most exposed to the virus, such as the hands.
For contagion to occur, there must be two carriers of the virus, so if one contains the active agent of the virus together with the active agent of the other person, it will cause the appearance of this skin condition. It all depends on the state of the immune system, as the warts will appear much more quickly if the immune system is weak.
How can Aloe Vera help us? If we use in our daily routine a 100% natural soap containing Aloe Vera or a natural Aloe Vera gel, it will help us to effectively prevent the appearance of warts.
If warts have already appeared, we recommend that you follow the same treatment but reinforcing it with an Aloe Vera cream or gel, as it is very important to keep the area completely hydrated so that no further complications arise. We will now explain how to apply the Aloe Vera gel to the warts.
The first thing we need for the treatment is pure Aloe Vera gel. We apply the pure Aloe Vera gel on the wart with the help of a cotton pad and wait for it to be completely absorbed. The effect is not immediate, so we must follow this treatment for a continuous period of time in order to see optimum results.
If you notice any adverse effects during the treatment, you should consult a specialist to assess your situation and recommend a new method. If the pure Aloe Vera gel works for you, in a few weeks you will be able to see how the treated area improves and how the warts disappear completely.
Aloe Vera is a totally natural alternative to treat warts, so with its use, we will avoid chemical products that are much more aggressive with our body.
