Warts are caused by one of the many versions of the Human papillomavirus (HPV), which infects through broken skin or the mouth (like when you bite the nails). No one knows why some people are more warty than others, since the virus is ubiquitous and comes in contact pretty much with everyone. That HPV just loves some people more than others! We don’t know anyone who loves having warts, and some medical cures are harsh and ineffective. So here is one of our many home remedies to make them disappear: Finely grate a small, peeled carrot (use the small holes on your grater), and combine with one teaspoon of olive oil. Put the mixture on the wart(s) for a half-hour once a day. Your wart should be gone within a week. Carrots are packed with vitamin A and vitamin C, which fight viruses and help heal skin.
