Warts

OVERVIEW

Warts, also known as Verruca Vulgaris, are small, benign(non-cancerous), generally painless growths on the skin. They are caused by a virus known as human papillomavirus (HPV). Although this dermatological condition is harmless, warts can have negative psychological effects on patients, leading to poor self-esteem and low self-confidence.

Facts About Warts

  • Warts are contagious
  • It is common in children and frequently observed in those aged between 12 and 16 years
  • People with a weak immune system are at risk

Several types of warts can affect an individual. Certain types of warts can cause itching and pain. In some cases, warts may clear naturally without any treatment. But in most cases, proper treatment is necessary. As warts are contagious and spread easily, prompt wart removal is a must. Homeopathic warts treatment effectively treats the root problem and prevents recurrence.

More On Warts

Warts are commonly found on hands, feet, face and neck, but can also occur on any part of the body. Their shapes vary from flat, large and fleshy to thin, long and cylindrical. They are generally skin-coloured, though they can be dark brown or grey-black as well. Also, it is common for warts to grow in clusters.

As mentioned before, warts are caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus. It infects the top layer of the skin, leading to the formation of a wart. As warts are contagious, they can spread from one person to another, through direct skin-to-skin contact, contact with a surface containing the virus or through shared objects such as towels. They also tend to spread from one body part to another.

Common warts often clear on their own in a few months or years, but some are stubborn and take long-term warts treatment to disappear.

Types

There are four major types of warts, and each type has a distinct appearance:

  • Common Warts
  • Flat Warts
  • Filiform Warts
  • Plantar Warts

Common Warts

Common warts are raised lesions varying in size from a pinhead to about 10 mm in diameter. Typically, they are grey or flesh-coloured. Covered with rough, horn-like projections, common warts are generally found on hands, feet and around the nails. As the name indicates, these are the most common type of warts and can affect individuals of all age groups.

Flat Warts

When compared to common warts, flat warts are small and only slightly raised above the skin. They can vary from flesh-coloured to whitish. Unlike common warts that appear rough, flat warts appear smooth. These types of warts are usually the size of a pinhead and can appear in clusters on the face and legs. It is observed that flat warts, when they occur on the face, tend to spread fast. Flat warts affect both teenagers and adults.

Filiform Warts

Filiform warts are long, narrow and filamentous warts that generally appear in clusters and tend to grow fast. These flesh-coloured warts affect the face and neck of an individual. One of the characteristics of filiform warts is that they spread easily. When accidentally rubbed or scratched, these warts get irritated and may even bleed.

Plantar Warts

Plantar warts grow on the soles (plantar surface) of the feet. They are also known as mosaic warts due to their mosaic-like appearance. Unlike other warts, plantar warts tend to grow into the skin, and therefore, are difficult to treat. They may feel like pebbles in the shoe and make walking painful. Generally, plantar warts have a tiny dot at the centre which is formed due to clogged blood vessels.

Homeopathic treatment is found to be effective in wart removal without scarring the skin. Homeopathic medicine is patient-specific, and therefore it is given after understanding the type of warts affecting the patient.

Causes

The virus that causes warts is known as human papillomavirus or HPV.
HPV is an umbrella term for a large group of viruses, and there are approximately 100 genetically different kinds of HPVs, and most of them can cause warts on the skin.

CAUSES

The virus that causes warts is known as human papillomavirus or HPV.
HPV is an umbrella term for a large group of viruses, and there are approximately 100 genetically different kinds of HPVs, and most of them can cause warts on the skin.

HPV-causing warts can pass from person to person. It can also spread from one body part to another in the same individual. A person with a cut, scrape or cracked skin is at risk of catching the virus. That explains why warts are prevalent in children who often sustain injuries on the body. Also, warts are common on body parts where people shave, like the beard area for men and legs for women.

The virus that causes warts has the capability to remain alive in warm and moist environments like showers, gym equipment, etc. Therefore, touching any object used by the person with a wart can spread the virus. Coming in direct contact with someone’s wart can also infect you. Once the virus enters the body, the incubation period starts where the virus remains dormant from one to eight months. Thereafter, warts begin to appear.
