Warts – Warts Removal
What are warts?
Warts are benign skin growths that are caused by human papillomaviruses (HPV). They most commonly appear on the neck, face, and groins, as well as hands and feet. The size of a wart can vary between one and four millimeters and, depending on the type of wart, they can be skin-colored or darker.
Appearance of warts
Stress and low immunity are the two most common reasons for the appearance of warts. They are considered to be a common skin disease which occurs in 7% to 10% of the population. Like other viral diseases, warts can be transmitted from one body part to another, as well as to other people.
Types of warts
Depending on the type of the HPV virus and the place of appearance of warts, several types of viral warts can be defined:
Regular warts appear and spread when the skin is mechanically wet or on places where the skin is damaged. They can appear on any part of the body but are most commonly seen on hands, knees, and feet. Regular warts are recognizable by their circular shape and rough surface.
Filiform warts got their name for their appearance which resembles rough threads that grow from a single basis. This type of warts most commonly appear on the face, lips, eyelids, armpits, and groins.
Flat warts most commonly appear on the face, neck, stomach or chest.
Condylomas are genital warts that appear on or around genitals. They are sexually transmitted and the time of incubation lasts between two and six months. Condylomas are recognizable by their mushroom-like shape.
Molluscum warts are most difficult to recognize because their bubble shape makes them look like pimples. They spread fast and can be painful so warts removal treatment is recommended. They are a common occurrence in children and youth.
Mosaic warts appear on feet and nail plates, hence patients easily confuse them with corns. This type of warts spread easily and can be very painful and difficult to cure.
