If you have been afflicted with the nasty, contagious condition known as warts—hard lumps of keratin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) — it’s important to find an effective treatment as quickly as possible, owing to the fact that warts can spread easily, both on your own body, and to others. Today, it’s acknowledged that at-home kits containing salicylic acid are one of the best ways to cure warts quickly, without painful side-effects. Luckily, one can now buy products such as Wartrol in Australia.
Why buy a treatment containing salicylic acid?
Simply put, because it works! How? Salicylic acid softens and breaks down the toughened skin layers that form warts. One can then remove the built-up layers of skin that form the wart, gradually reducing the wart’s size, until eventually the wart is completely gone. Salicylic acid is generally not painful to use (though it may cause minor irritation), has no serious side-effects, and it has both anti-inflammatory properties and beta hydroxyl acids, which help to ease pain, make the skin shed quicker, and neutralize skin bacteria, killing HPV and reducing the risk of secondary infections.
Salicylic acid is much less invasive than going to a doctor or dermatologist, who may cut or burn out the wart, leaving a “hole” that needs two weeks to heal completely. Indeed, visiting a doctor for warts is only recommended if you have unusually stubborn, recurring warts, or you suspect you have a more serious condition than just warts. Unusual skin lumps, redness, itching, or bleeding at the site of a wart are all signs that you should consult a doctor.
For best results when using salicylic acid, try the following:
- Soak the wart in warm water before applying the acid, to help loosen and soften skin, allowing the medication to penetrate the wart more easily.
- Apply the treatment just before you go to bed, and keep it covered.
- Remove the dead wart tissue daily, doing so gently with the use of a file or pumice stone. The tissue will still be contagious and able to spread the wart virus, so dispose of it carefully. The tool you remove the dead skin with will also become infected with the virus, so do not use it for any other purpose, and never share it with others.
- If treatment causes the area around the wart to become tender, stop using the medicine for 2 to 3 days, to give the skin a chance to heal.
