Whenever a person contracts a sexually transmitted disease they feel a sense of overwhelming regret. It’s natural to wish you could turn back the hands of time and avoid being intimate with the infected partner, but the past is the past. All you can do now is move forward and deal with your disease the best way possible. If you have contracted warts in your genital area you likely have already spoken to your doctor about potential ways to treat it. There’s an alternative that you may want to try though. There are several home remedies to remove genital warts that are proving helpful to many people. They’re worth a try if you’re having a current outbreak.
Here’s a short list of home remedies to remove genital warts:
Hemorrhoid cream. This may not be the first thing you consider when you’re looking for a way to treat your genital warts at home, but it’s effective. Hemorrhoid cream is inexpensive and contains active ingredients that will help reduce the itching and swelling of warts in the genital area. It’s best to apply just a small amount on one wart to test the effectiveness and to make sure you don’t have a bad reaction. If it helps, apply it a couple of times a day just to the warts. You can do that with a cotton swab.
Aloe vera. Aloe is one of the most effective natural remedies for skin conditions. People turn to it to treat everything from scrapes on the knees to sunburns. It does help if you have genital warts. Aloe vera can be purchased in a liquid or gel form. Either will work well and again it’s just a matter of cleansing the area and then applying the aloe right onto the warts with a cotton swab. Do this once in the morning and then again at night before you sleep. It has a soothing quality to it that you’ll find beneficial.
Banana peel. This is by far one of the most outlandish home remedies to remove genital warts but it does work. The technique is tricky. Right before bed you should place a banana peel next to the area where you see the warts. The inside of the peel should come in direct contact with the affected skin. Then you want to put on a snug pair of panties or underwear. Don’t choose a pair that is so tight that it cuts into your legs or waist. Just make certain that they’re snug enough that the peel remains next to the skin. You can do this on a nightly basis until you notice the warts beginning to darken and loosen from the surrounding skin. This definitely falls into the category of “old wives’ tale” but it does seem to work and since it’s all natural, it’s worth trying.
Don’t become too discouraged once you realize you do indeed have genital warts. With all the available home based remedies, you can find some relief and start feeling better soon.
