TCM Etiology of Warts and Verrucas

Warts and Verrucas

In Chinese Medicine warts and verrucas are attributed to the weakness of the Liver, which has been invaded by Wind-Heat. Acupuncture treatment is good for this, or a herbal plaster will burn off the wart.

Internally, the Liver should be cooled and nourished by Pu Gong Ying (Herba Taraxaci), Ju Hua (Flos Chrysanthemi), Li Zhi Cao (Herba Salviae Plebeiae), Chi Shao (Radix Paeoniae Rubra) and Mu Li (Concha Ostreae) made into a tea, and drunk regularly. This will ensure that the warts do not return.
