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.
Periungual Warts – This particular type usually develop around or under fingernails or toenails (in the latter case they are also called subungual warts) . Although they are like other common warts, they are very painful and more difficult to cure, because of 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…
