Seven other patients were not treated with hypnosis. Both groups were asked to refrain from any treatment for warts, including home remedies. Patients who received hypnosis were told that they would experience a tingling sensation on the warts on one side of the body and that only those warts would disappear. Nine patients lost more than three quarters of all their warts, and four patients lost all warts on both sides of the body. At the same time, the group of those who did not receive treatment showed no improvement. It is believed that the power of suggestion increases the activity of the body’s T cells, which fight viruses.

There are several recommendations to prevent and combat warts
Do not walk barefoot. If you walk barefoot in locker rooms, swimming pools, showers in gyms or on hotel carpet, there is a high probability that the virus will be there. The best protection is the footwear.
Cover your cuts and scrapes If you have cuts or scrapes, you must quickly disinfect the wound and then cover it with a bandage until it is cured, otherwise the virus can easily enter under the skin. Care should be taken if the cut or opening is around the cuticle, as it can cause a particularly malignant type of wart (peri-frontal warts) which are difficult to treat.
Keeping your feet dry If you have warts on your feet, try to keep them as dry as possible, as the warts develop in moisture. It is best to change the stockings at least three times a day and then apply a medicated talc. Equally beneficial is changing shoes frequently and allowing them to dry completely.
Check Medication Use Some medications to soften and get rid of warts contain salicylic acid. However, these are not recommended for diabetics and people with circulation problems.
Do not touch the warts Warts are contagious easily, if touched by the hand, it runs the risk that it appears there or in some other area of body that has subsequently touched.
Keep calm. People are more susceptible to warts when under stress and at the same time eat poorly. Therefore, it is recommended to remain calm.
