Gems of Homoeopathy in the management of warts

Dr Rajni Devi

The physician who can soonest remove the disfiguring blemishes, heals diseased conditions smooth and beautify the skin is the one whose praises are the loudest proclaimed by the gratified patient. 

Warts are little raised tumors, sessile or pedunculated,hard, generally round rugose and mammilated.They are made up of coherent and enlarged papilae, each containing a loop of blood vessels, more or less nerve tissue,especially at their base.Most of the time skin diseases like warts  have scarcity of symptoms so they are difficult to treat. They only display one or two symptoms which obscure all others. So we have to select the remedy accordingly. Many times we get only location of the complaint as symptom, on the basis of which we have to select the remedy so  here by considering the location medicines for warts from the book “Skin Diseases by Douglass” has been described.
