Salicylic Acid Warts Treatment is among the many treatments that you might hear of for warts. While the name "acid" might make it seem like this can be painful to apply, it is not necessarily the treatment itself that is painful but what comes afterwards. Not only do you have to attend to your wart daily with this type of treatment, sometimes, a blister can form and this is what can be painful.
What Are Warts?
Warts are really just benign tumors of skin cells. They are actually caused by a virus that makes the cells grow to rapidly which results in the bumps you know as warts. In order to get rid of warts, you must get rid of the virus and this is not always successful with topical applications like salicylic acid because the virus can be deep down in the bottom layers of the skin.
Treating Warts With Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid Warts Treatment is pretty easy but it must be done every day. First, you must pare down the wart using either pumice or a blade and then soak it in warm water to help absorption of the treatment. Apply the Salicylic Acid to the wart ( you can buy it at any drug store) and cover with a band aid. Keep the band aid on until the next day when you repeat the process of soaking in warm water and applying the acid.

As you can see, this treatment can be a pain in the neck and, as I mentioned before, it might not even work! It may seem like your wart is gone, but the virus could still be lurking underneath and after a few weeks or months you may find your wart back again.
