HPV is the most common form of the virus which commonly infects human beings. This causes skin rashes and warts which are painful, burning and also contagious.
There are a number of HPVs which cause different types of infections. Many are worried whether there is any relief for this infection. Here is a list of home remedies which have been found to have the best effects in killing the Human PapillomaVirus.
Best Home Remedies For HPV
Since years turmeric is known for its best antiseptic properties. Turmeric prevents the progression of the infection, reduces the itching level and prevents the tissue damage. The compound called curcumin in turmeric is known to cause this effect.
This compound suppresses the action of HPV thereby reducing the oncoproteins production and reducing the cell damage and death. Only the roots should be made into a paste and the powder available in the market is not advised.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is one of the best known remedy for the warts caused by HPV infection. The apple cider vinegar should be taken with a cotton swab and should be applied onto the warts daily. It is found that within 3 – 4 days the warts disappear.
This may be due to the fact that the vinegar has malic and acetic acid in it. This has a potent irritating property. It increases the temperature of the surface where it comes into contact. So there is death of viral cells due to this property.
For some people this worked as a miracle as it has made the warts disappear within few days completely. The best ingredient would be castor oil when combined with baking soda, it do away with the warts within few times.
Same as vinegar this should also be taken with a cotton swab and applied onto the affected areas. This does not irritate the area on which it is applied to.
Citrus fruits are known for its property of healing. These fruits are rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is greatly required for stimulating the healing process in the human body. This helps to boost up the immune system.
Researchers have proven that when an HPV infected person regularly consumes fruits rich in vitamin C, the progression rate of the disease has significantly dropped down and person’s immune power was improved a lot. So it is recommended to take at least a glass of lemon, amla or orange juice daily.
Garlic is also one of the best known potent antiviral substances which we take daily in our foods. This greatly helps in drying and making the warts fall off. This is one of the authentic treatment practices of the ancient physicians.
Fresh garlic juice can be applied onto the affected area. This area should be tied with a bandage. For some person it may cause blisters to occur. But this treatment is continued again and again till the wart dries and falls off. Usually it takes 3-4 sittings for the treatment to take effect.
This is the simple and comfortable treatment for most of the people as this does not cause any burning sensations. But application of ice cubes over the affected area may not give faster recovery. This may be a temporary option.
