Help with Warts, Verrucas and Molluscum (Molloscum)


Useful Information and Advice Warts (Verrucas)
  • Small, skin-coloured, rough lumps on the skin. They often appear on the hands and feet.
  • A wart on the sole of the foot is called a verruca. Genital warts are warts found on the genitals and around the rectum.
  • They are caused by infection with a virus called human papilloma virus (HPV).
  • Although they are usually harmless, they can look unattractive. They often clear up by themselves, although treatment can help to get rid of them more quickly.
  • Warts are very contagious. The skin cells in warts release thousands of viruses, so close skin-to-skin contact can pass on the infection.
  • It can take weeks or even months for a wart, verruca, or genital wart to appear after you have caught the infection.
  • People with weak immune systems (the part of the body that fights infection) are more likely to get warts.



Mulluscum contagiosum
  • A viral infection of the skin. It is more common in children, although anyone can get it.
  • It is not serious and usually clears up in 12 to 18 months without any treatment.
  • Molluscum contagiosum spreads through skin to skin contact and sharing towels and clothes. This is why it is so common among children, who play together, share toys and are constantly with other children at nursery or school.


Effective Natural Treatments


Warts, Verrucas and Molluscum all respond well to Homeopathic and Herbal treatment. The following are some remedies that are highly effective forms of treatment, all available without prescription. Generally it is best to combine an internal remedy (Homeopathic Pilule) with a topical application (Cream or Tincture).


You should have any change in shape, colour, apperance or feel of any excresence checked by your homeopathic practitioner or GP.



Many people prefer a cream because it is easy to apply and rubs in giving a soothing effect. We recommend using most tinctures in a cream base and for warts and molluscum we recommend Thuja or Black Walnut Cream.
Thuja Cream Use Thuja Cream for all warts in conjunction with the appropriate Homeopathic remedy.
Black Walnut Cream Black Walnut cream can be use on all skin excresenses and tumours. Always seek medical advice if any skin condition deteriates.
