I’ve heard about a lot of barbaric methods used to get rid of warts. When I read about someone trying to use bleach, I personally felt that this was a strange thing to do and that it probably would not work. Nevertheless, it does work if you do it correctly. I will be explaining how to do it in a fashion that will increase your success rate with it. Just imagine how much money you save since you can perform this treatment at home instead of paying for a dermatologist to do several freezing sessions on a wart.
Clean the area where wart is located thoroughly:
In order to reduce the chance of infection setting in during the performance of this procedure, make sure that you wash the area just by using plain soapy water and drying it thoroughly. It’s not necessary to scrub away, you just want to remove any bacteria that may be on the surface of your skin.
Now scrape off the top layer of your wart that has been moistened during the washing process:
You can simply use a pumice scraper to get rid of the dead skin cells that are on the surface of your wart. This will be easier than it seems since the surface of it has been softened by the washing process.
Soak a Q-tip in chlorine bleach:
Simply submerge the end of a Q-tip into a small container of chlorine bleach. Now apply the end of it onto the surface of your wart that you would like to kill off. Try to hold it in place for at least 5 seconds so that it has a chance to soak into the lower level of the wart.
You might feel a little bit of pain, but that will subside quite quickly.
Cover the surface of the wart that has been treated with the bleach with a simple bandage:
Now you will need to protect your wart from being scratched or being manipulated at all while it is in the process of dying off to avoid infection.
Simply add a small bandage to your wart to protect it. Try to avoid peeking underneath the bandage from time to time and also avoid scratching the wart even if you experience an itching sensation.
Repeat the last two steps three times a day:
You might have to repeat the above process 2 to 3 times a day for around a week until the wart has started to shrink in size. It will become smaller and smaller and then it should eventually break apart and disappear totally.
