Homeopathy Remedies for Warts

Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Warts, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Baryta carbonica [Bar-c]

      This is one of Hahnemann’s emphasized remedies for warts when homoeopathically indicated. Use 30th, once a day. Perhaps more in chronic warts-if there be such a thing.

Magnesia sulph [Mag-s]

      Another remedy for warts. Use 6x, 5 tablets a day.

Sour apples Says Fernie, the juice of a sour apple, rubbed on warts pared to the quick, will remove them.

Thuja [Thuj]

      Fungus warts, fig warts, and fungous growths, etc., are generally cured by talking Thuja 30, internally, daily, a dose until warts are gone. It may be well to intermit a few days at the end of the week.

Calcarea calcinata [Calc- ]

      This drug, from burnt oyster shells, in 8 gr. doses, taken every day, will generally clear away flat warts, or warts that crack and bleed. Dr. John H. Clarke, of London, who introduced it, says that he finds it practically a specific for flat warts, but useless for any other kind. He gave the 3x, 5 to 8 grain dose, at bedtime.

Causticum [Caust]

      If Thuja fails in a crop of warts try Causticum, 6th or 30th, especially for warts around the genitals. Also for big seed warts, in the hair or elsewhere.

Hecla lava [Hecla]

      The back, or dark, scabby warts or growths on the face that tend to get sore, and cancerous, have been cured by Hecla lava 30, once a day a dose. So says Dr. E.B. Rossiter, who cured several such conditions with that drug, who had been told that cutting out was the only hope. Cutting can only remove the growth, but not the cause of growth.
