Warts on Children

Warts on children are very common, much more than in adults. The reason is children play outside, practice sports and touch everything especially when little. This makes them very exposed to all kinds of 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 their bodies. Then, the virus forms warts, small rough growths on the skin. Warts take time to grow to a size that is clearly visible. Usually, it takes several weeks and sometimes months before they can be seen. For this reason, it is going to be hard to know where your child have got the virus.

The places where children are more likely to get infected are gyms, swimming pools, playgrounds and generally all the places where it is possible to get in direct contact with other people. Touching a towel, a surface or anything that has been in contact with a person infected with warts, can lead to an infection. Also, you should know that children who bite their nails are more exposed to HPV infections compared to children that don’t. This is because they will create small scratches on their hands and create an opportunity for the virus to enter their body.

In the case of infection, to prevent the child from infecting other parts of the body or 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 children until the warts are completely removed.

Warts that frequently form in children

There are many types of warts. Some are smooth and flat, some are big and rough, others are very small and form 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 than 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 to be kept clean and dried.

Treatments for warts on children

There are many different treatments to get rid of warts and they are chosen based on the type of wart and on the area where they grow. The treatments that doctors usually prescribes are:

  • Lotions or creams: 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. The treatment leaves can leave scabs and scars and has to be repeated one to three weeks for a couple of months. 
  • Laser: it is normally used to remove big warts or when other treatments have not succeeded. This type of procedure as the others above has to be repeated for several times.
  • Surgical removal: the wart is incised and removed with a scalpel.

Something that you should know about these treatments is that they are very painful and have a long healing period. 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 and at the end your child is probably going to be left with scars. In the case of plantar warts, there is a very high risk that your child will not to be able to walk for weeks or even months.

Warts on Hands

Warts on hands are a skin infection that can be very problematic to cure. This is because, when warts grow on hands, it is going to be very easy to spread them on other parts of the body or to transmit the infection to other people.

The areas where they form are fingers and fingernails. They are usually not painful unless they grow under the nail plate. In this case they are not going to be only painful but also very difficult to remove. Another way to refer to hand warts is periungual warts, when they grow around the nail, and subungual warts, when they grow beneath it.

Symptoms and transmission of hand warts:

Warts are small rough growth which develop on the skin after an infection from the human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus can penetrate inside the body through area of broken skin such as small cuts or scratches. Hand warts can be transmitted either through direct or indirect contact with a person or an object. This means that you can get the virus just shacking hands with an infected person or just drying your hands on a towel which has been previously infected.

Warts on hands can be spread very easily because we constantly touch things around us or our body without even realizing it. This makes very high the possibility to infect object and also to infect other people when we interact with them. I strongly suggest you have your hands covered with gloves all the time if you have warts on them. This will make sure you will not accidentally spread the HPV to other parts of your body, to other people or contaminate any object.

Cures and treatments for warts on hands:

Since hand warts are going to make your life much more difficult, I am sure that if you have them you are already looking for a way to remove them. Most of the times, this type of warts can be considered flat warts since they are also flat, rough and have a light pink or yellow/brown color. Like for them, there are few available treatment for their removal:

  • Electrocautery: A medical probe heated with electric current is used to burn the wart and cauterized it. As you can imagine this procedure is very painful and can leave visible scars.
  • Surgery: It consists in a surgical incision that will remove the infected tissues. If warts has grown beneath fingernails, the procedure will remove also a part of the nail. This of course is going to be painful.
  • Cryotherapy: The warts are going to be frozen with liquid nitrogen and then removed. Since it can be very dangerous and leave visible marks on your skin, this procedure is only used when other have failed.

Something you should know about these treatments is that they are not only invasive and painful but they usually leave scars on the skin. Because of this a lot of pharmaceutical companies are now selling over-the-counter drugs that try to remove warts without any side effect. These products are creams or lotions that you have to apply for several weeks or months. They never solve your problem completely. This is because no external treatment is able to eradicate the HPV from the body and even if the warts are physically removed, they are going to grow again since the virus will be still inside your body.

Human Papillomavirus

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the virus that causes the growth of warts on the skin. There are more than a 100 different types of HPV and all of them can cause the manifestation of diverse form of warts.

In most of the cases, when you get infected you will become aware of the infection only after some time. This is because at the beginning the body will not to 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 is going to manifests, warts will develop on your skin in the point where the virus has entered in your body.

In the best-case scenario if you get infected with HPV, you will have to deal with the growth 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 places like the uterus, esophagus, anus, oral cavity or larynx.

Human Papillomavirus infection symptoms:

The Human Papillomavirus form as warts on the skin. At the beginning when the warts starts forming they can be mistaken for blackheads or pimples because of their look and of the itchiness of the area. Only when they are completely formed it will be possible to determine if you have been infected with HPV or not. In the case you get warts inside your mouth you will notice them as small withe growth and experience sore throat. Because of this sometimes are mistaken for throat patches. When the virus attacks the private parts it can cause the formation of genital warts which are going to produce itch and pain in the area.

Human Papillomavirus transmission:

The Human Papillomavirus is usually transmitted through physical contact with an infected person or touching and object or a surface previously infected. The most common places where the transmission is more likely are swimming pools, dressing rooms and showers (all places where you can get in contact with other people or others’ belongings). In the case of genital warts, unprotected sexual activities are the easiest way to get infected. Because of this I suggest using protections all the times. 

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