Effective Wart Removal TechniquesA wart is generally a small, rough growth, typically on a human’s hands or feet but often other locations, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. They are caused by a viral infection, specifically by one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV). These viruses transmit from an infected person to the other through direct physical contact and this disorder usually affects an individual with low immunity. This skin disorder may appear anywhere in the body but mainly seen in hands, feet, face, neck and genital region.
Wart removal is a necessity to sufferers whose daily activities have been inconvenienced or when the warts badly affect their physical appearances. It can be rather embarrassing for the victims to face their friends or just about anyone especially when multiple warts develop on their bodies in visible areas. Worse still, folks who are ignorant about the causes of warts may mistakenly view the sufferers as lacking in personal hygiene and therefore suffer from multiple ugly warts. As you can see, the impact these warts have upon the individual extends beyond just the physical. Suffering from warts can be detrimental to one's confidence and self-esteem. This article will walk you through briefly what are the different types of warts, what are the likely causes, and what can be done to treat them.
A range of types of wart have been identified, varying in shape and site affected, as well as the type of human papillomavirus involved. These include:
•Common wart (Verruca vulgaris), a raised wart with roughened surface, most common on hands, but can grow anywhere on the body;
•Flat wart (Verruca plana), a small, smooth flattened wart, flesh-coloured, which can occur in large numbers; most common on the face, neck, hands, wrists and knees;
•Filiform or digitate wart, a thread- or finger-like wart, most common on the face, especially near the eyelids and lips;
•Genital wart (venereal wart, Condyloma acuminatum, Verruca acuminata), a wart that occurs on the genitalia.
•Mosaic wart, a group of tightly clustered plantar-type warts, commonly on the hands or soles of the feet;
•Periungual wart, a cauliflower-like cluster of warts that occurs around the nails.
•Plantar wart (verruca, Verruca plantaris), a hard sometimes painful lump, often with multiple black specks in the center; usually only found on pressure points on the soles of the feet.
Warts are a skin condition that many individuals have. Although this condition is, in most cases, completely harmless, there are many individuals who wish to have their warts removed. This is because some warts, depending on their location, can be painful and others are unattractive. If you have warts and you are interested in having them removed, there is a good chance that you may have thought about doing your own at home wart removal. While it is possible to do, are you aware of the dangers? If not, it is important to familiarize yourself with them.
With at home wart removal, you have a number of different options. Those options include home remedies, as well as over-the-counter medications. Although over-the-counter wart removers may be considered safer, it is important to remember that they are both associated with risks. These risks may not only be harmful to your health, but to your physical appearance. That is why it is important to familiarize yourself with these risks, ahead of time.
