The serious homeopath will never advise you to remove warts before they have ceased to show signs of evolution and activity. In fact, they are nuclei of outcrop of solid toxic substances that the organism is not able to neutralize by digesting them. 

This makes them both storage points and elimination valves . Homeopathy frames warts as a tendency to solid toxic deposits in internal organs (sycosis) or, more simply, a tendency to form tumors, in particular in the excretory organs.  

In other words, if they heal spontaneously with the support of a therapy that is also emotional, as in the case of homeopathy, the organism works independently and effectively to remove the block from elimination.

Among the various remedies, depending on the intuition and wisdom of the homeopath professional: Antimonium crudum 5CH, Causticum 5CH, Berberis vulgaris 9CH.

Exercises and movement for warts  

Swimming pools or changing rooms in gyms are the cradle of warts because humidity, favoring the maceration of the skin, makes it easier to take root. Personal hygiene in these environments is essential. Use your own towel and slippers.
