Warts on the nose, like any other flaw that grows in this area, are very visible. It’s as if there were a giant arrow pointing all the time for everyone to see.
That’s why, even though they don’t pose a danger to your health, aesthetically they are a problem. Today, we will explain how to remove warts on the nose with two different methods.
How to remove warts on the nose with garlic?
This magnificent food is known for its great flavor and beneficial properties for our body. But a trick up garlic’s sleeve is its effectiveness in eliminating common warts, such as those that appear on the nose.
It is used as follows:
- Crush some garlic cloves until you get a consistent paste.
- Apply the paste over the wart to be treated. Do it preferably at night and cover it with some gauze or cotton.
- In the morning, uncover it and wash the area with water and soap.
- Repeat this process for a couple of weeks.
Garlic, being a natural treatment, usually takes a little longer to take effect. But it is much more accessible than other methods for removing warts.
There are other home remedies for warts on the nose such as:
- aloe vera,
- and others.
How to remove warts on the nose with surgery?
Surgery is the fastest and most effective method to get rid of these annoying bumps on the nose. However, it is also one of the most expensive and complex in terms of post-treatment care.
Surgery encompasses a set of several procedures that can be applied. But one of the most used is electrocautery, which involves burning the warty tissue with a cauterizer to destroy it.
Other alternatives are cryosurgery and laser surgery. Any of these must be performed by a specialist in a safe environment, whether it is a surgical room or an office.
Can warts on the nose be treated with over-the-counter medications?
There are antiviral drugs that can be purchased at any pharmacy without a prescription. However, their use on the nose or face in general is not recommended.
We are talking about drugs such as:
- Salicylic acid,
- Trichloroacetic acid,
- And podophyllin.
Their mechanism of action can be somewhat aggressive for facial skin (including the nose). Therefore, it should only be used if a dermatologist prescribes it; never without medical prescription and supervision.
Why do warts appear on the nose?
Nasal warts appear due to a type of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
It’s not something to worry about, in fact, it’s very likely that the warts will disappear without the need to apply any of the treatments described above.
If you optimize your immune system, it will take care of attacking the virus and eliminating it from your body (click here to learn more), and with it the warts it causes will go away.
These were some tips to help you know how to deal with HPV. However, there is much more you need to do if you really want to get rid of HPV and warts forever.
What you need to do is GET RID OF THE ROOT of the problem.
For that reason, I recommend you to look into Dr. Kirkland's story and how he was able to cure HPV and get rid of warts for good.
I wish you great success in your recovery!
