WARTS (verruca)

All the dieases are mere Permutations and Combinations of PSORA , SYCOSIS and SYPHILIS miasms in different proportions. Homoeopathy (homeopathy) is a therapeutics, able to restore health and well-being (mental and physical), by correcting the disturbed vital (metabolic) processes, that lie at the core of all illnesses. We may gradually and permanently overcome chronic (having tendency to run life-long if not cured) ailments that have not yielded to any other therapeutic approach.


A wart (verruca) is generally a small, rough tumor, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection, specifically by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is also possible to get warts from using handtowels or other objects used by an infected person. They may disappear , can last for years and can recur. Warts can appear nearly anywhere on the body and they differ in appearance, size, and shape. Warts are often treated locally. Cauterization (burning the warts) by dermatologists. All such measures, are temporary; and the warts often reappear after some time. In Homoeopathy the medicines are to be taken orally and there is no local application. Homeopathy treats the ailment from within, and permanently. The duration of treatment varies from patient to patient. Homoeopathic treatment is safe and harmless and may be taken along with any other medicines, if required.
