Garlic Cure To Get Rid Of Plantar Warts

Garlic is also referred to as "Russian Penicillin". It has antioxidants that are said to kill bacterial,fungal and viral infections of various kinds. It is amazing. What causes Plantar warts is a virus called "HPV" or "human papillomavirus" . This is within the realm of what garlic can help to cure.

To try this treatment wash your hands and then crush a few garlic cloves.  More or less depending on how much garlic you think you will need. Leave the crushed garlic on the warts as long as possible, several hours is a good amount of time to try for. It's OK to not use this 24 hours a day, because allowing your skin "to breathe" is healthy.

Another garlic method is to take a fresh-cut slice of garlic, and apply it to the wart and the area of skin that is immediately surrounding the wart. Gently press the garlic slice to make contact. When the garlic's liquid has covered the wart and skin area, remove it and apply a bandage.

You might try applying the garlic before going to sleep, or while you're relatively inactive, for example while watching T.V. or reading. If you prefer, you can bandage the wart after applying the crushed garlic. Some recommend covering the wart with olive oil or castor oil, adding a thin slice of raw, fresh garlic {peeled} and then tape the garlic against the wart. Medical tape is one way of securing this bandage treatment. 

 WARNING---Do not use castor oil on children.

Repeat the process daily or as needed. Doing this more than once a day will help. Don't stop using the garlic if you start to see progress. Keep up with the treatments if this seems to work for you, until the wart has entirely disappeared.  Warts will darken as the process of getting rid of them goes on.
