Home care is effective for treating warts.Most of the techniques requires no medications.
Adhesive tape therapy: Place several layers of waterproof adhesive tape over the wart region (even duct tape) for 6 1/2 days. Then take off the tape and provide it exposure for 12 hours.Place the tape for another 6 1/2 days.The tape is recommened for warts around the fingernail.
Salicylic acid therapy : Salicylic acid can be used in a form of liquid which can be applied on the wart or as a plaster placed on the wart tissue. First soak the infected area in warm water for 5-10 minutes.Remove the top layer with a razor. Do not shave far enough to make the wart bleed. Apply the salicylic acid to the wart tissue. Do not apply it to other skin because of salicylic acid’s potential to injure normal tissue.
