Steps to follow:


To begin the process of removing warts with a thread, you must clean and disinfect the area where the lesion is. Take some gauze, put a little alcohol across the whole area of the wart. Then get a piece of thread (cotton or dental floss), and soak it with alcohol. Wrap the thread around the wart, get as close to the base as you can.


Once you have surrounded the entire wart, tie the thread and make a double knot so that it doesn't come undone. Now you must cut the ends of the thread with scissors to avoid it tangling with anything. And remember to disinfect the utensil, you must be very cautious with hygiene and disinfection.


Leave the wart with the knotted threat around it for several days or even for a week until it falls off by itself. The thread will cut the blood supply to the wart and it will eventually die. This isn't painful, just annoying. During these days, while waiting for results, apply alcohol to the area to ensure that it is very clean and free of pathogens.


When the wart falls off, it is recommended that you apply some cream to the area or even some antibacterial ointment until the area is completely healthy and healed. After the wart falls off cover the area with a gauze, and clean it daily.
