Removing warts becomes a necessary thing especially for those whose life has been affected to a great extent with the regular occurrence of warts. It gets really embarrassing for the patients to make a public appearance; some of them are even afraid of coming in front of their friends and family members. Moreover, there are even few people who take the initial appearances of warts as some minor skin irritation and over look the symptoms that follow, this leads to even uglier forms of warts, which gets hard to treat. Thus, you can see that the appearance of warts doesn’t only hampers the physicality of the patient, but also destroys their self confidence.
Warts are actually the skin outgrowths which are caused mainly by the HPV (Human Papillloma Virus). HPV attacks the skin and causes warts to develop. There are different types of warts which can affect our skin. There are plantar warts which affect our feet; there are common warts which develop on our neck, face, arms and legs; there are flat warts, which are like tiny sprinkles of mutilated skin and then there are genital warts which are perhaps the toughest to cure and deal with.
The plantar warts or the foot warts grow on the soles of our feet and causes inconvenience in walking. Plantar warts are in the form of thick outgrowth and when grows in cluster it appears as some sort of tiled object, flat and solid. It becomes important to remove plantar warts because they cause immense pain and discomfort. The common warts appear as patches on the skin or like some cracks, particularly on the finger and toe nails. The skin cracks on this region make us vulnerable to HPV attack. They appear as small black freckles. Some may think of it as some hormonal changes, but overlooking can only add to the woes.
There are also warts which appear mostly on kids, as small pin heads. These are also known as juvenile warts. They appear mostly on the arms, hands and knees and can also grow on the face. They mostly grow in a scattered pattern and can be very itchy and painful for the kid. Sometimes it can also affect the growth and psychological developments of the kid.
Generally the HPV attacks the skin through small cuts or broken skin cells. Any such activity will be and ideal circumstance for HPV to attack and form warts on your skin. One of the most common occurring warts affects people and especially kids who love nail biting; fresh peeling of skin attracts the HPV virus. HPV can also be transmitted sexually. So it is better advised to avoid sex with someone having warts.
