Facial warts can be embarrassing or even worrying, for many people or even worrying, and you may need to see a specialist to find the best treatment to get rid of them. As the face is a very delicate area, we will need to treat these skin lumps, and OneHowTo will show you how to cure facial warts.

Steps to follow:


First of all, when you notice these warts appearing on your face, you should visit your dermatologist or a specialist doctor who can examine them and determine the causes of these warts. Of course, in some cases, they can disappear on their own but treatment is usually necessary to get rid of them.


For this, one of the most common ways to get rid of facial warts is to try cryotherapy, in other words, a treatment that involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen. This aims to accelerate the removal process by freezing the wart to remove the affected skin cells.


There are many pharmaceutical products for freezing warts such as wart remover but remember that these treatments may take a long time and, if not applied deeply enough, the warts may reappear over time.


Likewise, sometimes, face warts can be removed through laser treatments, especially if you have a considerable number of these skin lumps. This method should always be performed by a medical specialist and, although it may be very costly, it is usually the most effective way to eliminate facial warts from the root.

Remember that while there are products to remove warts on other parts of the body, these should not be used on the face as it is a much more delicate part of the body. Therefore, products such as topical salicylic acid should not be used on facial warts.


On the other hand, there are some home remedies that can help you to reduce facial warts, although these may not be effective in all cases. A good example is to apply garlic onto the affected area; for this, crush some cloves of garlic and put onto the warts before covering with gauze and bandages. We recommend doing this before you go to sleep to let the garlic work on the warts overnight.

Another home remedy to get rid of facial warts that's pretty common is to use apple cider vinegar.

To make this home remedy, mix half the amount of apple cider vinegar as you have water. Apply using a cotton swab and cover it with tape for at least a whole day. This will help your wart to soften, making it easier to remove by using exfoliation treatments though, as we have mentioned, this is not such an effective method.
