Homeopathy can treat warts effectively. Warts, condyloma and molluscum contagiosum can be found in the skin and the mucous membranes. They are viral infectious formations caused by the papovavirus.
The appearance of each of these formations differs according to the type of virus that is involved.
Homeopathic treatment for warts, condyloma and molluscum usually lasts between 2 and 4 months. Warts should never be operated on as they will reappear and leave a scar.
Homeopathic treatment is lengthy but will ensure that the warts are eliminated and do not resurface at a later stage. Homeopathy is painless and eradicates lesions without scarring.
In order to prepare a homeopathic treatment for warts, we will focus on the following:
- The appearance of the wart: horn-like, transparent, yellowish.
- Location: hand, foot, face.
- Whether it is painful or not
- Whether there is a single wart or multiple warts
Homeopathic remedies for warts, condyloma and molluscum contagiosum
The base treatment for warts, condyloma and molluscum is Thuja 15C to be taken once a week.
The following pharmaceutical formula can be applied locally:

Some of the homeopathic medicines that are most important for the treatment of warts are:
Antimonium crudum is prescribed for warts that look like a coli flour and are horn-like and painful. These warts are usually multiple and appear in clusters. They can be found on the soles of the feet and the palms of the hands. The dilution can be 9c or 15C – 5 granules should be taken twice a day.
Nitricum acidum is prescribed for warts that have a yellowish colour, sometimes bleed and are hard and painful. Antimonium crudum is normally given in dilutions of 9c to 15C – 5 granules to be taken twice a day.

Thuja 5C, Nitricum acidum 5C and Staphisagria 9C – 5 granules of each medication should be taken once a day alternatively for a month or two.
Medorrhinum 15C – one weekly dose.
