Homoeopathic remedies for warts based on location

Dr Arun Kumar

Warts are horny projection on the skin that is caused by any of several papilloma viruses. It is also known as Verruca vulgaris. Wart is a skin disease that can be either symptomatic or only present as a cosmetic problem to some patients. Cryosurgery, laser treatment and several topical applications are available for the treatment of warts but all of them are either inconvenient or do not provide permanent solution to the problem. Homoeopathy is branch science with a good scope in such cases. Few indications are given here for quick reference.
