Treatment of papillomas with folk remedies

Papillomas are benign formations that can be localized on any part of the skin and mucous membranes. For their removal, various means and methods are used - medications, medicinal plants, surgical removal. Treatment of papillomas with folk remedies is more often used in the localization of formations on the skin and is carried out at home.

Folk remedies for papillomas are not always effective enough, so it is better to supplement other methods of treatment with them.

Papillomas: what is it and how to treat

Papillomas are benign neoplasms that result from increased proliferation of epithelial cells. They can appear anywhere on the body:

  • face - most often near the eyes;
  • neck;
  • chest, abdomen, back;
  • lower and upper limbs;
  • anogenital zone;
  • the mucous membrane of the genital organs - the walls of the vagina and the cervix in women, the penis in men;
  • mucous membrane of the respiratory tract.

In most cases, papillomaviruses (human papillomavirus, HPV) are the cause of formations. The disease can develop in both adults and children.

Treatment has two main directions: removal of papillomas and the fight against viral infection (including strengthening the immune system). For this, various methods can be used, including traditional medicine recipes. The most effective is a combined approach to treatment, that is, a combination of different methods.

Folk recipes: pros and cons

The use of folk remedies is only one of the treatment options.

The main advantage of traditional medicine is accessibility. You can be treated at home, while the treatment does not require special costs.

There are also disadvantages that limit the use of folk recipes:

  1. Getting rid of warts can take several months, it will not be possible to quickly cure the disease. But even with long-term treatment, there is no guarantee of success.
  2. The use of aggressive products can lead to skin burns and the development of other complications.
  3. In the treatment, contraindications to the use of certain medicinal herbs are often not taken into account, therefore, allergic reactions and side effects from the digestive tract may develop.

Thus, treatment with folk remedies will not allow you to quickly get rid of papillomas. However, with the right approach, home treatment can be effective.

What principles should be followed in the selection of therapy:

  • combination of funds for internal and external use;
  • accounting for contraindications for use;
  • frequency of use.
In addition, it is recommended not to be limited to the use of only folk remedies, since it is unlikely that it will be possible to cure papillomas only with their use. It is much more effective to combine their intake with basic therapy (lifestyle correction, strengthening immunity), and, if necessary, with drug therapy or surgical removal.


All folk remedies are divided into 2 large groups - for internal and external use. However, they do not exclude, but rather complement each other. A combination of internal and external agents is especially relevant for the treatment of skin diseases that occur as a result of a weakened immune system.
