Case History: 5- Year-Old Has a Wart on His Finger
My client called me about her 5-year-old son’s wart on his right index finger. She said the wart is a soft round bump on the inside of his index finger next to his middle finger. She also stated that the wart doesn’t hurt or bleed. After asking several questions, I selected the Homeopathic Remedy Dulcamara 30c, to be taken in a Remedy Solution Bottle (RSB) once a day at bedtime with 10 succussions. I explained to my client that we are looking for the wart to become flatter and/or smaller within 2 weeks. I also suggested that she take a picture of the wart every 2 weeks to help us see how the wart is doing.
My client called back 2 weeks later, telling me she saw a big difference in the beginning with the Dulcamara. The wart was smaller and a little flatter., but now she doesn’t see any further improvement. In the current pictures, it looks like the wart may be slightly bigger. I had my client start succussing the Dulcamara 30c 12 times, adding 2 succussions, before giving it at bedtime.
Ten days later, my client stated that the wart was becoming smaller since she had been succussing Dulcamara 12 times each time she gave it. She continued administering the Dulcamara to her son each night with 12 succussions. I advised her to increase the succussions by increments of 2 when the wart comes to a standstill to continue the healing process until the wart disappears.
What is a Wart?
A wart is also known as Verruca Vulgaris and is commonly called Excrescences (abnormal growths such as warts or nodules on the skin). They are benign (non-cancerous) growths that can appear as small or large bumps, with smooth or rough surfaces resembling cauliflower, or a solid blister, or grow like stalks (skin tags). Sometimes, the wart looks like calloused skin with black specks. A wart usually occurs on your hands, fingers, feet, neck, knees, or genitals and can often occur in other locations as well.
Warts are contagious and can spread to other parts of your body and other people by contact. In the medical world (Allopathy), they say warts are caused by a viral infection from one of the many types of Human Papillomaviruses (HPV). In Homeopathy, we see warts along with other growths (tumors) coming from the Gonorrhea (Medorrhinum) Miasm (having a predisposition to warts, tumors, etc.). Gonorrhea is not a virus; it’s a bacterial sexually transmitted disease. The Medorrhinum Miasm can be inherited or acquired from life stresses, causing gonorrheal symptoms, sinus infections, joint pains, and growths such as tumors and warts.
Common Types of Warts
There are about 10 varieties of warts, most considered to be harmless. Warts are Identified by their shape and location:
- Common Wart – Is raised with a rough surface and can grow anywhere on your body, especially on your fingers, elbows, knees, or face.
- Flat Warts – Are small, smooth flattened warts that are flesh-colored and form clusters. Flat warts appear on your face, neck, hands, wrists, and knees. They can develop in large numbers on the body.
- Filiform Warts – These warts grow straight out from your skin, similar to a thread (finger-like) or a Pedunculated Wart (skin tag). You commonly see these kinds of warts on your neck, eyelids, lips, and face.
- Periungual Warts – Are clusters of warts that develop around your fingernail or toenail and are thickened, fissured (break or slit in tissue), and cauliflower-like.
- Genital Warts – Develop on or around the genitals.
- Palmar Warts – This kind of wart appears on the palms of your hands, hence the name “palmar.” These warts grow in small raised clusters with a thickened and rough surface and may have distinct black dots (thrombosed capillaries).
- Plantar Warts – A Plantar Wart is also known as Verruca Plantaris and is a hard, sometimes painful lump, usually found on the pressure points on the soles of your feet. Plantar Warts often have multiple black specks in the center of the wart.
- **Two Types of Plantar Warts: A Solitary Wart – Is when 1 wart develops on the bottom of your foot. They can increase in size and multiply. Mosaic Warts – These are warts that grow in a group of tightly clustered warts on the soles of your feet. They sometimes can also develop on your hands.
Case History: Homeopathic Nitricum Acidum Helped My Plantar Wart
My client consulted with me about the Planter Wart she has had on the bottom of her left heel since last year. She described the wart as a hard, slightly raised bump on her foot. She also stated that depending on how she steps when walking, she would sometimes feel a sharp pain as if she stepped on a needle in the wart. I selected the Homeopathic Remedy Nitricum Acidum 30c, to be taken every night at bedtime in a Remedy Solution Bottle (RSB) with 10 succussions (taps).
My client called back 4 days later, stating the needle-like pain she sometimes felt when walking had decreased. “I don’t know if there are any changes in the Plantar Wart getting any smaller or softer, “she said. I explained to my client that when the needle-like pain goes away, she will start seeing the Plantar Wart becoming softer, smaller, and/or flatter. Sometimes, the top of warts, especially Plantar Warts, will start to disintegrate, and little crumbles of the wart will fall off. My client continued taking the Nitricum Acidum with 10 succussions every night.
Two weeks later, my client reported no longer having needle-like pain when she walks, and the top of the plantar wart is starting to peel away. My client called me 3 weeks later, stating her Plantar Wart had not been peeling or becoming smaller in the last 10 days. I had my client increase the succussions of the Nitricum Acidum from 10 to 12 and continue taking it at bedtime. I told her that when the Plantar Wart is not continuing to get any smaller, the Homeopathic Remedy (in this case Nitricum Acidum) is not strong enough to continue the healing process. When this happens, you must increase the succussions of the Homeopathic Remedy in increments of 2. My client continued taking the Nitricum Acidum until her plantar wart went away, making the Nitricum Acidum stronger (increasing the succussions) whenever the wart didn’t progress.
How to Select and Administer a Homeopathic Remedy for Warts
There are specific criteria you follow when selecting a Homeopathic Remedy for your wart(s):
- What Does the Wart Look Like? – Is it bumpy (looking like a cauliflower), round, flat, conical, blister-like, or a skin tag? Is the wart painful (needle-like)? Does it bleed when touched?
- Where is the Wart Located? – Is it on your hands, face, neck, or soles of your feet (Plantar Warts)?
Administering the Selected Homeopathic Wart Remedy
Take the selected 30c Homeopathic Remedy once a day in a Remedy Solution Bottle (RSB) with 10 succussions. If you do not see improvement within 2 weeks, increase to 12 succussions and continue taking daily.

Did You Know Thuja Oil Can Be Applied on Your Wart?
There are many Homeopathic Remedies for warts. However, the Homeopathic Remedy Thuja is a remedy commonly used for various kinds of warts. Over the years, I have recommended that my clients apply Thuja Oil topically on warts and skin tags when taking a different Homeopathic Wart Remedy other than the Thuja 30c.
How to Make Up Thuja Oil
Add 1 pellet of Homeopathic Thuja 30c in a paper cup to a small amount of distilled water. Once the Thuja pellet has dissolved, add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Gently shake the container to combine the mixture. Lastly, label your container. Store the Thuja Oil in a closed container.
Applying Thuja Oil on Your Wart(s) and or Skin Tag(s)
Once a day, preferably at bedtime, apply a small amount of Thuja oil directly on the wart(s) and/or skin tag(s). You can also apply 1-2 drops of Aloe Vera Juice or Gel directly on top of the Thuja oil and wart(s) or skin tag(s). The Aloe Vera will pull the Thuja Oil into the 7 layers of skin tissue. Next, place your finger on the wart(s) or skin tag(s) and massage in a circular motion 36 times.
