What are warts?

Featured

The first step to understand how to kill warts consists in understanding what they are, how they develop, what causes them and how many types of warts exist.

Warts are skin infection caused by the Human Papillomavirus. Warts manifest as growths on the skin and usually do not represent a serious medical condition. In fact, they are benign tumors (non-cancerous). Warts are composed by a central nucleus which extends deeper in the skin and connects to blood vessels, warts’ source of nourishment.

Warts are aesthetically unpleasant and often painful, but what makes them so annoying is the time required to remove them. First of all, in order to find an effective way to cure and get rid of warts, you should know what causes their formation and what types of warts exist.

There are 5 types of warts. Each type has different characteristics and can develop almost on every part of the body. Below, you can find a list of the main types of warts and their principal causes:

Flat Warts – This type of warts normally grows on arms, face or legs. A flat wart is generally flatter than a common wart and may vary in color: from pink to brown/yellow.

Plantar Warts – Plantar warts grow on the sole of the foot. Usually, they have a light tone or a slightly yellow color and they appear as hard growths on the skin. Plantar warts cause pain when walking (because of the pressure of the body on them) and will make you feel like having a little stone inside your shoes.

Filiform Warts – These warts commonly form in the area surrounding the mouth, nose, eyes or beard. Filiform warts are generally flesh-colored and characteristically long, narrow and protrude above the surface of the skin.

Warts under nails – This particular type usually manifests around or under toenails or fingernails. Although they are like other common warts, they are painful and more difficult to cure, since the area where they grow.

Genital Warts – They form in the genital area and manifest as small growths. Genital warts vary in thickness, from soft to hard, and color, from light pink to brown or yellow.

There is a good news after all…

How to Identify a Wart

In previous articles we have analyzed the existing types of warts. Looking at them, you have probably noticed that they are caused by the Human Papillomavirus and they should never be underestimated. The question I have been asked most of the time from people seeking my help is: how can I identify a wart? How can I know that I have a wart and not something else? Well, as I mentioned before in previous articles, every type of wart has some specific characteristics.

Here below you can find some tips that will help to know how different types of warts look like and how to identify them. To make it easier for you, I have divided them in groups.

How to identify Common Warts:

Common warts are one of the most frequent types you can get infected by. This type of warts includes warts on hands and most of the warts that may grow on our bodies.

  • They are grey/brown or flesh-colored rough growth (created by an excessive presence of skin layers).
  • They have visible black dots (coagulated blood vessels) over or underneath their surface.
  • They have a rough surface that looks like a cauliflower.
  • Their dimension varies from few millimeters to one centimeter.
  • Normally they grow singly or in couple, but without proper treatment they may grow in groups.
  • Usually they are not painful, but that depends on the area they grow.
  • They usually grow on fingers, on the back of the hand, on arms and legs.

How to identify Plantar Warts:

Plantar warts are similar to common warts, but they have a darker color. Usually they grow on the foot or on the heel, which are the areas more subjected to the weight of the body.

  • They manifest as flat or moderately raised areas underneath the foot.
  • Usually, they are rough and uneven.
  • Their color varies from yellow/brown to dark brown.
  • They can manifest singly or in groups (like a mosaic).
  • They are generally painful because of the pressure the body exercises on them.
  • They have small black dots (coagulated blood vessels) that are visible on their surface.

How to identify Flat Warts:

Flat warts have small dimensions compare to other types. Their peculiarity is that, in most of the cases, they manifest in young age. As a matter of fact, flat warts are one of the most common types of warts on children.

  • They are flat and smooth to the touch.
  • Their color varies from pink to light brown.
  • Their dimension is only few millimeters (about 2mm to 4mm).
  • Usually they grow in groups of that range from 20 warts to over a 100.
  • Commonly they grow on the face (children and adults) or on legs (women).

How to identify Filiform Warts:

Filiform warts differ from other kinds of warts for their shape and for the speed they multiply.

  • They manifest as long growth that protrudes above the surface of the skin.
  • Their color is white or in some cases yellow/brown.
  • The area where they manifest the most is the face, particularly on eyelids, lips and on the neck.
  • They grow very fast and can multiply in a short period of time.
  • In most of the cases they are painless.

How to identify Genital Warts:

Genital warts are very easy to identify. They look like small bubbles and they manifest after unprotected sexual activities with an infected partner.

  • They appear as small growth.
  • They have the same color of the skin and sometimes they tend to be white.
  • In most of the cases they manifest in groups.
  • They are not painful but are very contagious.
  • They appear mainly on the genital area (penis, vagina, anus), but can also manifest inside the mouth after oral sex.

Now, you should be able to identify warts easier. I suggest you to examine carefully the pictures in the article to have a better understanding of the warts you are interested in.

Common Warts

Common warts, as all types of warts, are caused by the Human Papillomavirus. They manifest as skin growths and they can be easily identified from their rough broken surface that looks like a cauliflower. Their color is close to pink or white. Common warts can develop on the skin in any time during of our life, but some recent studies have found that their manifestation is more frequent during childhood. This is because, children have less developed immune system compared to adults and so, they are more easily to get infected. When the virus contaminates an area of the body, it causes a quick and an unnatural grow of skin cells, generating the manifestation of warts.

Which and of many types of common warts exist?

Warts are often developed on fingers and on hands because of our tendency to touch uncomfortable areas, but they can manifest everywhere on the skin.

common warts

The areas where this type of warts usually grows are the back of fingers, the back of hands, beneath and around fingernails and on the sole of the foot. More rarely, they have been found on elbows and knees. Warts that grow on the sole of the foot are the more painful, due to the pressure that is constantly exercised on them.

One of the most unpleasant cases of common warts, besides plantar warts, is periungual and subungual warts which are the warts that grow respectively around and underneath fingernails. In some severe cases the increasingly growth of this warts has caused the fallen of the nail.

Another very unpleasant manifestation of common warts is filiform warts. This types of warts often develop after shaving and it can grow around the area of the mouth, the nose or the neck.

Treatments for common warts:

This type of skin imperfection is usually removed through a surgical procedure or cauterized through electrocautery. In both circumstances, the patient is left with a big scab. Another potential treatment is cryotherapy which is utilize to burn the wart with liquid nitrogen.

In addition to the above treatments there are a number of creams and lotions that, applied during a long period of time, “should remove the wart”, something that often does not happen.

In most of the cases these treatments are very painful and will require a long time and many session to show some kind of result. This is because modern medicine tends to concentrate on warts and not on the virus that causes them. What are the consequences? The result is that the wart will manifest again and again, in a matter of weeks, months or even years. The virus can stay hidden for a long period of time inside the body and after manifest again.

Warts on Children

Warts develop very commonly on children, more often than on adults. This is because children play outside, practice sports, and especially when little, they tend to touch everything. This makes them very exposed to viruses and bacteria.

The cause of child warts infection:

The cause of warts on children is the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This virus takes advantage of small cuts and scratches on the skin to penetrate inside the body. Then, the virus will manifest as warts on the body, taking the nourishment from blood vessels inside the skin.

Warts on children take time to grow to a size that is clearly visible. Usually, it takes several weeks and sometimes some months before they can be seen and identified. For this reason, it is very hard to find the origin of the infection.

The most common places where children are more likely to get infected are gyms, swimming pools, changing rooms and generally all the places where it is possible to be in direct contact with a lot people. Touching a towel, a surface or anything that has been handled by a person infected with warts, may lead to an infection. Also, children that bite their nails are more exposed to HPV compared to children that don’t.

warts on children

In the case of an infection, to prevent the child from infecting other parts of the body or infecting other people, it is very important to make sure they will not touch infected areas and that they will not get in direct contact with other people.

Warts that frequently develop in children:

There are many types of warts. Some are smooth and flat, some are big and rough, other are very small and manifest in groups. The majority of warts are not painful unless they are scratched or picked.

Below you can find the types of warts most commonly developed in children:

  • Common warts grow on fingers, hands, knees and elbows. They have a rough surface and distinctive black dots. Normally their color is light grey or yellow/brown.
  • Flat warts are often called youth warts because children are more easily infected compare to adults. This type of warts are small, flat and of a pink or yellow/light brown color.
  • Plantar warts are the most painful type of warts because of the weight that the body exercise on them. To prevent plantar warts, you have to make sure that the child will not walk barefoot in public places or places not too clean. Also, socks have to be changed every day and feet have too be kept clean and dried.

Treatments for warts on children:

Treatments utilize to get rid of warts are many and are chosen based on the type of wart and on the area where it grows. However, doctors always suggest the same treatments:

  • Lotions or cream: they contain acids that slow the growth of the wart and have to be applied for months, often without any result.
  • Cryosurgery: liquid nitrogen is used to freeze and eliminate the wart. Commonly, the treatment leaves scab. This procedure has to be repeated from one to three weeks for a couple of months. This is because warts will not be removed immediately.
  • Laser: it is normally used to treat big warts or in cases where other treatments have not succeeded. This type of procedure as the others above has to be repeated for several times.
  • Removal: the wart is incised and removed with a scalpel.

As I mentioned before, all of these treatments are very painful and the healing period is very long. Also, in most of the cases the patient is left with scars. Especially for children these methods can be considered a real torture. The skin of a child is very sensitive and soft. Every treatment after the first will be increasingly more painful. This is because the skin will not have enough time to regenerate completely. In the case of plantar warts, there is a very high risk that the child will not to be able to walk for days or even weeks.

Warts on Hands

Warts on hands are one of the most problematic types of warts. Hand warts are very unpleasant to look at and are also very contagious.

warts on hands

The areas where they develop the most are fingers and fingernails. In the last case they are not only painful but also very hard to remove.

Transmission of warts on hands:

All warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus or HPV. This virus penetrates inside the skin and target blood vessel from which it takes the nourishment.

Warts spread through direct contact with an object or a person. When you have warts on hands, this means that you can infect other areas of your body or other people very easily. An important precaution in the case of hand warts is to have the infected area covered all the time. I suggest using gloves, this will prevent accidental contamination.

How to identify warts on hands:

In most of the cases, warts on hands manifest like flat warts: flat, rough and of a light pink or yellow/brown color. They are painful, especially when something hits them.

Cures and treatments for hand warts:

Doctors utilize mostly two kinds of treatments to remove these warts:

  • Surgical removal: it consists in a surgical incision and a removal of the infected area. If the wart has grown beneath fingernails, the procedure will remove also a part of the nail, making it much more painful.
  • Electrocautery: through a medical probe heated with electric current, the wart is burn and cauterized. As you can imagine this procedure is one of the most painful methods to kill warts. For this reason, it is utilize only when the wart was not possible to remove with other treatments.

In addition to surgical procedures, which are invasive and also leave scars on the skin, there are a number of over-the-counter drugs and herbal medicine that promise to remove warts. Usually, these products are cream or lotions that have to be applied for several weeks and even months, depending on the size and on the depth that the wart has reached.

All of these treatments are very painful and very long. Most importantly, they do not assure the elimination of the HPV, but only of it symptoms. What does this mean? It means that the virus can stay hidden inside the body and manifest again with new warts in the future.

Human Papillomavirus

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is what causes the manifestation of warts on the skin and on mucous membrane. There are more than a 100 different types of HPV and each one is part of the 16 main families of the virus.

human papillomavirus

In most of the cases, victims become aware of the infection only after some time. This is because at the beginning the body will not show any visible symptom. Sometimes the virus can stay hidden for months or even for years before you’ll know that it is inside your body. When it manifests, you will start noticing some growths on your skin. Their size and shape will depend on the area of the body that is infected.

In the best-case scenario if HPV infects you, you will have to face the manifestation of flat warts. In the worst of the possible cases, you will have to deal with genital warts or oral warts. You have to be aware that, if not eradicated in time, the virus can lead to more dangerous diseases like cancer in area such as uterus, esophagus, anus, oral cavity or larynx.

Symptoms of Human Papillomavirus infection:

The Human Papillomavirus manifests as a wart on the skin. At the beginning its manifestation can be mistaken for a blackhead or a pimple because of their similarities and of the itchiness in the area where the wart is growing. Only when the wart is completely developed, it will be possible to identify it.

When the virus infects the oral cavity it will manifest as a small white growth. Since it may cause sore throat this kind of warts is often mistaken for throat patches.

In the private parts the Human Papillomavirus forms genital warts that will manifest as small white growths and will cause pain and itchiness.

Human Papillomavirus transmission:

The Human Papillomavirus is transmitted through physical contact. The most common places where it is possible to get infected are swimming pools, dressing rooms and showers (all places where you can get in contact with other people or others’ clothes). In the case of genital warts, unprotected sexual activities are the easiest way to get infected.

When infected with genital warts it is recommended to avoid any kind of sexual activities (vaginal and anal penetration and oral sex). Also, it is very important to avoid contacts between and with genital parts. This is because, it is possible to get infected also without penetration. Another aspect to take in consideration is that there is the possibility to get genital warts even if neither of the partners show any sign of infection. This is because the virus may have not manifested yet.

In some rare cases of pregnancy the mother has infected the child at the moment of birth. In this situation the child can seriously risk to contract a Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RPR).

Human Papillomavirus diagnosis:

If the HPV does not manifest with symptoms on the skin or on mucous membranes it is very hard to identify. Analysis used to detect the Human Papillomavirus can only identify more serious diseases such as uterine cancer.

Foot Warts

foot wartsFoot warts are one of the most common and widespread type of warts. They are easy to identify for some of their characteristics. The most common features of foot warts are the thickening and hardening of the skin and an altered skin pigmentation, usually of a yellow/brown color. Often, where plantar warts (scientific name of warts on foot) manifest the skin is few millimeters higher than normal. When warts develops on the sole of the foot, they can cause a lot of pain. This is because the weight of the body constantly exercise pressure on them. Having a plantar wart feels like having a pebble inside the shoe. The discomfort caused by having this kind of wart generally will make difficult to maintain a proper posture, causing also back and neck pain.

Another distinctive characteristic of foot warts is the root, which is visible as a small dot at the center of the wart. Foot warts can be hard to see sometimes. They are easy to identify only when the root is very deep and therefore big. It has to be noticed that, looking for the root is not a reliable method to identify plantar warts, but it can be still useful.

Warts can manifest everywhere on the foot, but the most painful are the ones that grow on the sole. This is because during the day the area is constantly stimulated and has to bear a lot of pressure. Other types that cause a lot of pain are periungual and subungual warts which grow respectively around and underneath toenails. Both of these types make very uncomfortable and painful wearing shoes.

What causes warts on foot?

Behind the manifestation of foot warts and all types of warts, there is the Human Papillomavirus. This DNA virus causes the formation of warts and be infected is easier than you think. The virus spread through person to person by direct or indirect contact. A small scratch or a small wound on the sole of the foot is enough to allow the Human Papillomavirus to enter inside the body. After that, it is only a matter of time before its manifestation as one or more warts under the sole of the foot or in the surrounding area.

The most common mistake people make is thinking that removing the wart will solve the problem. In reality, until the Human Papillomavirus is not eradicated from the body, warts could develop again, even only after few weeks.

Where can you get foot warts?

The easiest way to get foot warts is to walk barefoot. The most common places where you can be infected are showers, gyms, swimming pools or simply the floor of your house. Because of this, I highly recommend to always use flip-flops in gyms and swimming pools showers and to use slippers when you are at home.

When we take in consideration warts on children, we must be extremely careful because children can be infected very easily doing sports or playing outside. This is because the skin of a child is very delicate and vulnerable.

Treatments for foot warts:

The most common treatments used to remove this type of skin problem are cryotherapy, laser therapy and surgical removal procedures. Cryotherapy is the use of liquid nitrogen to burn warts, while laser therapy uses an intensive beam of light to burn infected warts cells. Surgical removal procedures allow to make an incision and remove all the infected tissues.

You may think that the above treatments are a permanent solution, but in reality they hide a lot of problems. First of all, the healing period is very long. Also, cryotherapy and laser therapy leave very big scab that make difficult to walk. Surgical removal procedures leave a wound that will cause a lot of pain and discomfort when walking. The recovering period for these procedures is of several weeks before the skin will heal completely.

The worst problem of these treatments is that, most likely, they will leave patients disabled and in suffer. This is because, as I mentioned before, until the Human Papillomavirus is not eradicated completely from the body, warts may manifest again.

Filiform Warts

Filiform warts are different from other types of warts. They manifest as growths that protrudes above the surface of the skin. This type of wart it is not dangerous but it can be very annoying, embarrassing and hard to cure.

filiform wartsFiliform warts grow mainly on the neck and on the face. Because of this, when talking about facial warts, in most of the cases we are discussing about filiform warts. The areas of the face which are easier to get infected are eyelids, lips and the neck, all parts that are very hard to cover. These warts look like small shrub that protrudes above the surface of the skin. Their shape is narrow and long. Generally, they have the same color of the skin, even if in some cases they are more of a white or a yellow color. What makes these warts more unusual respect common warts is the speed and aggressiveness they have in spreading on the skin.

What causes filiform warts?

As all warts, filiform warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). To be more specific, these infections are caused by HPV types 1, 2, 4, 27 and 29. The HPV penetrates inside the body through cuts or scratches and  then uses blood vessel to get nourishment. The virus spread very quickly and makes skin cells grow very fast as well. The heat and the humidity of the skin facilitate the fast multiplication of cutaneous cell. This quick growth makes the wart to protrude above the surface of the skin. This explains their narrow and long aspect.

Main symptoms of filiform warts:

Filiform warts grow so quickly that it is very hard not to notice them. There are some symptoms that can make you aware of their manifestation. A premature symptom is itchiness in the area where the wart is growing. When the wart is big enough, it will be very easy to see. Filiform warts grow very fast and can cause bleeding if they grow in areas where they are subjected to great stimulation, as the area around the eyes. Filiform warts can grow individually, but this is very rare. In the majority of the cases, they form in groups. This is due to the fact that we tend to touch frequently our face and so, without even realizing it, spread them everywhere.

One of the easiest ways to get infected with the Human Papillomavirus is to use someone else’s towel. This does not imply that getting in contact with an infected person will automatically result with an infection. Most likely, individuals with a strong immune system would not get infected. Anyway, it is recommended to avoid physical contact with people who have contracted the virus. If you are already infected, you should be very careful not to touch the wart, preventing the contamination of other parts of the body.

Treatments to remove filiform warts:

Doctors suggest the use of immunotherapy treatments to cure facial warts in order to avoid scars. The substance is applied on the wart or injected inside it. This procedure will strengthen the immune system and allow the body to remove the warts from the inside, without the need of invasive procedure.

If the body does not react to the above cure usually the next step is to utilize more aggressive methods such as using salicylic acid. When even this method does not produce any result, possible treatments are laser surgery or cryotherapy. However, these treatments are not only very painful and expensive but also do not assure to eradicate completely the virus. These procedures are not a definitive cure since they will only eliminate the symptoms and not their cause.

Genital Warts

Genital warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). It is important to know that the HPV has more than 100 different strains and that there are more than 30 different types of HPV that can cause the formation of genital warts. Genital warts spread through the physical contact of private parts or through the transfer of infected genital fluids. Usually, this type of transmission takes place during vaginal or anal sex, but it can also happen just through the contact of private parts, even without penetration.

genital wartsTo protect your partner from a possible infection, it is very important to stop any sexual activity and sexual contact until the warts are completely removed.

The first reaction that most people have once they notice the presence of genital warts on their private parts, is of total panic. Don’t worry, genital warts are only benign growths and from a medical point of view are not considered particularly dangerous (as long as they are treated on time). Their peculiarity is that, differently from plantar warts or common warts, they tend to manifest in groups. Genital warts are also called venereal warts and are often included in the list of sexually transmitted diseases.

How to cure genital warts?

There is no treatment capable to instantly remove genital warts. Often, the manifestation of genital warts become less frequent over time, until the body naturally eliminates the virus and the warts spontaneously disappear. However, in some cases, the infection may last for a long time.

Because it is not sure how long genital warts will be contagious for, I advise you to consult a doctor before engaging in any kind of sexual activity.

The common treatments used to remove genital warts are:

  1. Podophyllin resin – A brown resin that stops the growth of genital warts cells. The resin is applied on the wart and washed away after approximately 4 hours (or earlier, if the area is irritated). Because the resin may cause damage to the skin and to healthy tissues, it is recommended to consult a doctor before its use. Also, the resin has to be applied during a long period of time to remove the warts.
  2. Cryotherapy – Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the more persistent warts. This treatment is very painful and have to be repeated to remove warts completely.
  3. Laser treatment – This approach utilizes a beam of intense light that burns the wart and the skin. This kind of treatment is expensive and is usually chosen in the presence of really big warts that have deep roots.
  4. Electrocautery – This method involves the use of a medical probe heated by electric current. Because of the heat the cells of the wart are burned and blood vessels cauterized. A local anesthetic is used to prevent the pain and the procedure is usually carried out in a medical clinic. Electrocautery is one of the most painful treatments to remove warts, so it is used only after the failure of other methods.
  5. Surgical excision – The doctor will perform a small surgical procedure to remove the wart under local anesthesia.

All of these treatments allow doctors to cure and remove genital warts, but in most of the case warts will manifest again. This happens because warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus which will not be eradicate through the above methods and in time, it will cause the manifestation of new warts.

Flat Warts

Flat warts, like all types of warts, develop after a Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. They have a white/yellow color or flesh color and they are very easy to identify. Where a flat wart grows, the skin is slightly higher than the normal and presents a raised circular area. Usually, flat warts grow on the face, knees, elbows, arms and legs.

flat warts

Flat warts are smoother and smaller than other types, such as plantar warts, and may grow individually or in groups. Flat warts often develop on children’s skin, which is an easy target for these kinds of infection. In adults, skin inflammation derived from shaving may contribute to the formation of flat warts.

Transmission of flat warts:

The transmission of warts takes place with a direct contact with the Human Papillomavirus. What does this mean?

It means that the infection may happen through physical contact with an infected person or through a carrying agent (vector) such as a t-shirt, a towel, the floor of a shower or gym.

Because of this, I recommend to be very careful when touching other people or using everyday objects that do not belong to you. Most importantly, when you are at the gym and you take a shower … always use flip-flops.

Flat warts may multiply with great ease since they are extremely contagious. For example, just by touching the wart and then touching another part of the body you can cause the manifestation of a completely new wart. Therefore, I suggest using gloves when touching infected areas.

Which is the treatment required to cure and get rid of flat warts?

This type of warts can be treated in different ways. Most of the time, the treatment is chosen accordingly to the severity of the case and on the number of warts.

Treatments normally recommended by doctors prove to be effective only at the beginning. However, they are not only very painful, but also they are inadequate to definitively solve the problem. This is because they eliminate the symptoms, but not the virus.

Patients who do not wish to make use of laser surgery or cryotherapy may rely on over-the-counter drugs which promise to solve the problem. The result is very different: not only to remove warts may take several weeks and sometimes even several months (depending on how deep the root of the wart is), but as you can expect, the virus will not be eradicated. Because of this, warts will manifest again in the future.

Plantar Warts

plantar warts

Plantar warts grow on the soles of the foot or on their side. This specific type of warts is more annoying and painful than others, such as flat warts, due to the area where it develops. Since planter warts creates a lot of discomfort, many people look for a quick and effective way to remove them.

Before taking a look to some of the most common methods used to get rid of plantar warts, we need to understand first what causes them.

What causes plantar warts?

Like all type of warts, plantar warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus, which we also know as HPV. There are more than 100 different types of HPV virus. Experts in the field have identified in the HPV type 1 the main cause for plantar warts. The virus is generally transmitted through direct skin contact between two individuals.

Plantar warts are highly contagious and spread very quickly. Places like showers or swimming pools are often a breeding ground for this type of wart. If you start manifesting warts on the feet, to avoid infecting other people you should take the right precautions, such as wearing flip-flops when using any type of public showers.

Signs and symptoms of plantar warts:

Below, you can find some of the signs and symptoms you may experience before the manifestation of a plantar wart:

  1. Pain on your foot and a sense of a raised bump or a little stone inside the shoe, especially when walking.
  2. Pain on your legs or on your back. This is generally due to the bad posture maintained because of the pain on the foot.
  3. A dry area on the skin and an irregular rough surface are the most common characteristics of this type of wart. While some may be flatter, the majority commonly protrude above the surface of the skin.

Treatments and cures for plantar warts:

Although at the moment doctors have not found a definite cure for the HPV virus, there are some treatments that can help to remove plantar warts. The most recommended by pharmacists are gels, creams or lotions which has to be applied on the wart. These products present three main problems:

  1. The removal method is painful: it consists in applying for months the product directly on the wart to level its surface and slowly remove it. The intent is to allow the product to penetrate inside the skin and eradicate the roots of the wart.
  2. The treatment is definitely very long: the cure has to be carried out during a long period of time and can last even several months.
  3. A complete healing and a definitive solution of the problem is not guaranteed.

There are some medical procedures capable of removing this type of warts. The most common is to use liquid nitrogen to burn the wart. Nevertheless, the treatment is not definitive and, above all, it is also very painful.
