How to remove warts with salicylic acid

Warts are small, raised bumps on the skin. They may have small dots on their surface, which are blood vessels. 

There are many different types of the virus that causes warts. Warts happen when the virus causes skin cells to multiply faster than usual, creating a raised area of skin.

If people want to remove bothersome warts, such as those on the hands or feet, salicylic acid is often an effective treatment option.

Salicylic acid peels the skin away in layers, which removes the wart over time. The acid also irritates the wart area, which encourages the immune system to respond to the virus.

Salicylic acid is an affordable, accessible, and safe treatment option for getting rid of warts and has very few side effects.

bathe or soak the wart in warm water for 5–10 minutes to soften the skin

file the wart with a rough surface, such as a pumice stone or emery board
