What causes warts on the hand? How to cure them?

Hand warts are the most common warts in most people, present in almost 10% of the total population. These warts are highly contagious and easily spread from one person to the other.

There are a few natural wart removal remedies that do take a bit longer, but can help you get rid of the warts within a couple of weeks. Given below are some of the most commonly recommended natural wart removal techniques:

  • Rub the inside of a banana peel on to the wart each night.
