Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus, which is present worldwide. Warts may spread person to person or indirectly through a contaminated object. Warts can occur on almost any area of your skin. You can treat common warts at home using a variety of methods. When treating warts around the eye, you should take great care to avoid contaminating the eye with wart medication. The human papilloma virus may also cause tumors in the conjunctiva of the eye.
Soak your warts and the area surrounding the warts in warm water for 10 to 25 minutes or apply a pad soaked in warm water to your eye for 10 to 25 minutes.
Apply the salicylic acid. Be careful to keep this solution away from the eyes. This solution can irritate healthy skin surrounding the wart.
Clear away dead skin after treatment. Use a nail file or pumice stone.
Repeat this daily for a few weeks until your warts are removed. If the area where you applied the solution is irritated, it means the treatment is working.
