Get Rid of Warts with Green Tea

Warts are most typically caused by the human papilloma virus. They can cause your skin to dry up, itch, even hurt. But mostly, they're just ugly. One of our favorite wart-removal remedies involves duct tape, but there are other things you can try, including green tea.

The folks at DIY Health explain that the antioxidants in green tea is excellent for removing warts from the skin. You can drink 2-3 cups per day to help reduce the action of HPV on the skin or you can apply the teabags directly. Just steep a bag for 5 minutes in near-boiling water, the same as you would for making a cup of tea. Let the bag cool, apply it to the wart, and let it sit there for 10-15 minutes. Do this three times per day. The warts will eventually dry and fall out. And for maximum effect, drink the tea and use the direct application in combination.
