Top 8 Homeopathic Medicines For Flat Warts

Flat warts are flat or slightly raised, smooth, non-cancerous (benign) growths that appear on the skin. These are small in size compared to other types of warts. The size of these warts varies from 1 mm to 3 mm in diameter. One may confuse flat warts with acne or age spots. Flat warts are also known as plane warts. These usually occur in big clusters (multiple numbers) so ensure to notice them. The number of these warts vary from about a dozen to 200 varying from case to case. These may develop on different body parts, such as on the face, back of the hands, neck, wrists, forearms, arms, legs and the knees. These warts are round or oval-shaped. The colcolorour may too vary on a case-to-case basis. They may be flesh-colored, yellowish, brown, reddish – brown or pinkish. Irritation or itching can occur in these warts. Irritation usually is a result of scratching these warts. There is no pain in these warts. Flat warts are caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Many different types of strains of HPV can lead to warts.  Among these usually four strains are known to cause flat warts. These four strains of HPV include 3, 10, 28, and 49. Flat warts are contagious i.e. these spread from skin-to-skin contact with a person infected with this virus. Though these are contagious but not highly contagious like many other types of warts. One may also get this infection by touching surfaces carrying this virus. Sharing towels, clothes, razors and other personal objects of an infected person also carries the risk of getting this infection and wart formation. This virus gains entry into the skin via a small cut or crack in the skin. After entering the skin, it causes infection of the cells in the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and results in quick multiplication of these cells causing the development of flat warts. Not everyone who has this infection develops warts as several factors increase the risk of the formation of warts after exposure to HPV. These factors mainly include low immunity, maintaining poor hygiene, having a cut or break in the skin, chemotherapy treatment and genetic tendency towards it. A person with flat warts at one place on the skin may also spread them on his/her other body parts. This is known as autoinoculation. Flat warts affect children more frequently than adults due to this reason. These warts are also known by the name of juvenile warts. Most commonly these affect children between ages of 12 years and 16 years.

    I have stumbled upon your site and I cannot quit reading your information. I’m a retired RN with 35 years of traditional western brainwashing. Learning what our creator has given us for healing is fascinating!

    My question is regarding morning depression. I find it very difficult to get up and seize the day. I feel flat, down, sad and sad have zero desire to do anything- even things I looked forward to doing. By noon I’m motivated and by 6pm I feel normal, positive and energetic.

    I only have minimal tea in the mid morning. No other caffeine. No sugar, I eat low carb. I take basic supplements. I have normal BM’s and have no preexisting conditions. I have felt this way since I was a child.

    Thank you !
