Leave your suggestions for cures for warts in the comments box below
Warts are one of the most common conditions that people suffer from, and are more often seen in children and teenagers than they are in adults.
Although warts can clear up on their own, many treatments are available if the problem persists. There are over-the-counter treatments, such as creams and gels, of which the most common is salicylic acid, which is administered onto the affected area, causing the skin to die and then be able to be rubbed off with a emery board.
Another common treatment is cryotherapy, where liquid nitrogen is sprayed onto the wart, freezing it and destroying the cells. An over the counter version of the spray can also be bought, which can be administered at home.
Elsewhere in the world there are numerous other home treatments that are claimed to be effective against warts. In Embarrassing Bodies: Live we’ll be trying out some of these treatments.
