The first step to learn how to kill warts is to understand what they are, how they develop, what causes them and how many types of warts exist. Warts are viral growths caused by the Human Papillomavirus. They can be formed anywhere on the skin and usually do not represent a serious medical condition. In most of the cases are only benign tumors and non-cancerous ones. The way that warts survive on your body is through tiny blood vessels that grows deep inside your skin.
Warts are not just unpleasant to look at and often very painful, but it can take a very long time to find a proper cure to remove them. This is because there are many differente type of warts. If you want to find an effective cure and get rid of your warts, you must first understand which type you have been infected with and how they have been transmitted to you.
The main types of warts and their transmission
There are 5 main types of warts. Each type has different characteristics and can develop almost on every part of your body. This is a list of all of them and their principal characteristics:
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, 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.
All types of warts described above are caused by the same virus: the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). You should know that, there are more than 100 species of this virus and they can be transmitted through direct or indirect contact. This means that you be infected touching someone who has warts or coming in contact with an object or a surface that has been previously touched from someone else’s warts.
Also, it is very important that in the case you develop warts to be very careful when touching them. It is very easy to transmit to other parts of your body the infection if you are not going to be cautious. So, I suggest you not to pick or scratch the warts and to wash your hands immediately if you ever touch any them. This will prevent from spreading the virus all over your body.
Warts Can Be Easily Removed at Home and Without Any Painful Treatment.
