Warts, HPV & Molluscum Contagiosum

Warts can be treated very effectively with classical homeopathy. We treat all kinds of warts, including genital/hpv warts and plantar warts. Molluscum contagiosum can also be treated effectively with homeopathy. In order for treatment to be effective, an appointment must be booked at the clinic.

The standard medical approach involves pharmaceutical medications, topical creams and surgical options such as electrocautery, laser treatment and cryosurgery. Traditional treatments don’t prevent recurrence. In contrast, homeopathy gets to the root of the problem and prevents recurrence. Homeopathic treatment is painless, non-invasive and has no side effects.

Scientific Studies Prove the Effectiveness of Homeopathy for the Treatment of Warts, HPV and Molluscum Contagiosum

Gupta Ramji, Bhardwaj O.P. & Manchnda R.K. “Homoeopathy in the treatment of warts.” Br. Hom. J 1991; 80: 108-11

Out of 66 cases, 14 defaulted [verruca vulgaris 12; verruca plana 1; verruca plantaris 1]. Thus 52 cases were finally analysed [verruca vulgaris 21; verruca plana 11; verruca plantaris 19; verruca vulgaris and plana 1]. Out of 52 cases warts disappeared completely in 47 cases; no change was observed in three, and in two cases the number of lesions increased.

Manchanda R.K., Mehan N., Bahl R., Atey R., “Double Blind Placebo Controlled Clinical Trials of Homoeopathic Medicines in Warts and Molluscum contagiosum,” CCRH Quarterly Bulletin, 1997, 19, 25-29.

This trial was reported in two parts, one to evaluate the efficacy of homoeopathy for warts (remedies included Ruta graveolens, Nitricum acidum, Dulcamara, Causticum and Thuja) the other to evaluate the homoeopathic remedy, Calcarea carbonica, for Molluscum contagiosum. Placebo controlled studies involving a total of 147 subjects using single remedies in 30C potencies three times daily, 200C twice daily and 1M daily, for 15 days, showed that homoeopathy was superior to placebo. Thuja was the most successful of the remedies used for warts and Calcarea carbonicum in Molluscum contagiosum.

In this study, 14 people suffering from recurrent HPV, previously unresponsive to microsurgical procedures, were treated with individualised homeopathy and assessed via cytology prior to treatment, during, and 1 year after commencing treatment. At the final 1year assessment, 11 of the 14 subjects were declared to be cured.

Molluscum contagiosum is a benign and contagious disease of the skin. In a series of 30 consecutive patients, 15 had full resolution, 12 were improved. Brief case histories of the 15 patients who fully resolved are presented. The homeopathic medicines most frequently associated with positive outcome were Natrum sulphuricum, Sulphur and Natrum muriaticum .

Molluscum contagiosum(MC) is a virus (MCV) belonging to Poxvirus group of DNA viruses, commonly affecting the skin. There are four distinct subtypes of MCV, but mainly MCV 1 is responsible for MC. It is a self limiting disease characterized by classical transparent umbilicated skin lesion, with characteristic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies. As spontaneous resolution takes place within 18 -24 months, and no single conventional treatment is convincingly known to induce early resolution, and also they are more or less painful techniques. So the standard medical advice is to wait for spontaneous resolution. Because of contagious nature, parents become anxious particularly when it spreads to other children. Due to this, parents often feel to treat such cases if there is no danger in the treatment procedures. In our clinic 100 such MC patients were treated with single homeopathic medicine, along with a control group of 10 cases treated only with placebo containing the vehicle of the original medicine. All the patients were followed for 2 years. Out of one hundred cases, 90 cases showed remission within 15 days, and most of the cases cured within 2-3 months. Only single oral medicine (Dulcamara) was used orally without any local application. No remission was noted in the control group within 3 months, and after this little improvement was seen in 4 cases after 6 months, while 2 cases were cured after 18 months. The result of this study was encouraging. It is not only helpful to control the spread of the disease within short time but also indicating a definite role of homeopathic medicine in MC.

Examples of Cured Cases of Warts and Molluscum Contagiosum with Homeopathy


A girl, Miss TN, 12 years of age had 3-4 warts on the fingers of the right hand. Thuja 200, then 1M was given with good hopes. To my consternation the number of warts went up to the ominous 13. I reviewed the case this revealed a very affectionate nature with care for each member of family in sickness or grief, together with craving for salt, aversion to sweets, and right-handed warts. Why not Causticum? The remedy in 1M and 10M potency, in infrequent doses, removed the warts one and all.

Few months back her mother came to me for her old aching joints. On enquiry, she informed that the girl is married, blessed with a son, happy and wartless.


Miss PT, 8 years old, came with small pearl-like growths on face, neck and chest more on right side. But this time Causticum refused to oblige.

The dermatologist was consulted and I learned a name “Molluscum contagiosum” given to these growths. I was tempted to give Tuberculinum as the opening dose on account of the word “contagiosum”. Working out the case pointed to the following facts.

The girl enjoyed pickles and spices, came down with headache on her return from school at noon, was touchy by temper and turned her face away at the least raised voice. Often she closed her room, wept inside and refused to open the door. Natrum mur seemed to fit in as the constitutional remedy.

Natrum-mur 1M, then 10M, interpolated by Tuberculinum shrank and removed the growths without a trace, within 6-8 months.

Case 3:

The girls younger brother, 6 years of age, developed similar affection on the chin and chest.

The boy had different mental and physical make-up. He craved sweets and soups, had a week digestion, and a wiser head on his little shoulders. Holding his fathers hand, he would go to their grain shop every Sunday, sell the ware, collect and count the money.

He responded to Lycopodium 200 and 1000 in infrequent doses with Tuberculinum 1M thrown in during quiescent phase.

All pearl-like dots disappeared within some months with improved digestion a bonus.

Wart Case Studies by Tamara Der-Ohanian

A Case of Genital Warts

A young woman, I will call her Courtney, felt devastated about contracting genital warts from her boyfriend. Feeling angry and betrayed, Courtney had conducted hours of research and explored her many options for eliminating the warts. She was convinced that having the warts burned off by her physician was her best option. However, afraid of enduring the pain associated with such a procedure, she was hopeful that a more gentle approach, such as homeo­pathy, could help.

Courtney’s biggest concern was the implication of the warts on her overall health. She saw the genital warts as a life sentence, something she would contend with for the rest of her life. She was afraid of possible future complications, including cervical cancer. In addition, Courtney wanted to have children some day and was frightened by the thought of passing the warts prenatally.

Genital warts is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a sub-type of the human papillomavirus (HPV). It spreads by skin-to-skin contact via sexual activity. While only a small percentage infected with genital HPV actually develop genital warts, they can transmit the virus to sexual partners.

Since homeo­pathy is concerned with treating the person as a whole being, I investigated many aspects of Courtney’s health, medical history, and emotional well-being. I explained to her that simply removing the warts by external means (burning or surgical removal) did not remove the disease or its contagious aspect. I further explained that homeo­pathic treatment could not only wipe out her warts, but also address the internal cause; the root which made her susceptible to genital warts in the first place. Homeo­pathic treatment can diminish and eliminate the predisposition to warts and the possibility of passing the virus onto partners and children.

Courtney was a compulsive worrier. As a result her family members often called her “worry wart.” Interest-ingly, the term describes a person who worries or stresses to the point of causing them to develop worry warts – or fever blisters.

The remedy I chose for Courtney was Calcarea Carbonicum. My decision was based on many factors combined, including her tendency to be overweight, along with her glandular swellings, excessive sweating, sleepwalking, nightmares of being pursued, cravings for and sensitivity to dairy products, anxiety about health, and fears about death and poverty.

The genital warts disappeared within three weeks of daily use of the remedy, and Courtney reported feeling stronger than ever before. After three months of taking the prescribed homeo­pathic remedy, Court­ney had more energy and felt happier than ever before. She proudly reported feeling calmer, the disappearance of her sleepwalking and nightmares, and getting rid of the cheating boyfriend.

Case of Plantar Warts

A 52-year-old man consulted me about his  painful plantar warts – one on each heel. When the first wart appeared under his right foot, James tried a few over-the-counter medications, as well as home remedies including the freezing kit, the plantar wart pads, and the duct tape method, to no avail. He then had the wart surgically removed. Not only did the wart grow back a year later, he also developed one on the other foot.

James suffered from headaches due to his sluggish digestion. Consuming fatty foods, or exposure to direct sunlight, were two guaranteed triggers of his headaches. He had dry skin in general, suffered from mild sleep apnea, and had chronic constipation. He used words like “kind,” “gentle,” and “sensitive” when describing himself. He had difficulty asserting his needs and avoided confrontations at all costs. Based on this data and other details about James’ medical history, I selection the remedy Natrum carbonicum.

James was pleasantly surprised with the effects that the remedy had on his overall health. While the plantar warts did not change during the first month, James was digesting better, his headaches became less frequent and he was sleeping deeper. A month later, the wart under his right food became smaller and less painful. Soon after, both warts disappeared completely.
