What are warts?

Featured

The first step to learn how to kill warts is to answer to the questions: what are warts and what causes them? 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. You should know that they 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 usually it can take some time before you will find a way to remove them. This is because there are different type of them. If you want to find an effective cure and get rid of your warts, it will be very important to understand which type you have been infected with.

Main types of warts and their transmission

There are 5 main types of warts. Each one has different characteristics and can develop almost on every part of the 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 and smoother than other types and has two characteristic colors: pink or light brown. They are very common in children.

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

Filiform Warts – These warts commonly form around the mouth, nose, eyes or beard. Filiform warts are generally flesh-colored, narrow and protrude above the surface of the skin. One of their characteristics is that they spread very fast.

Periungual Warts – This particular type usually develop around or under fingernails or toenails (in the latter case they are also called subungual warts). They appear like any common warts but they are usually very painful and more difficult to cure, because of the place 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. They are not painful but they create a lot of discomfort and they are very contagious.

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 strains of this virus and they can be transmitted through direct or indirect contact. This means that you can either get infected touching someone who has warts or touching an object or a surface that has been previously infected.

Also, it is very important to be very careful when touching your warts. This is because, it is very easy to spread the virus to other parts of your body if you are being cautious. So, I strongly suggest not to pick or scratch your warts and wash your hands immediately if you ever touch them. This will make sure you won’t spread the virus all over your body.

How to Identify a Wart

Learning how to identify a wart is the first step in the cure of this type of skin infection. You should know that every type of warts has the same origin, the Human Papillomavirus. This is why, a lot of times, I have been asked from people seeking my help: how can i know what type of warts I have? or how can I know that I have warts and not something else? Understanding if you have warts is not difficult because they have very specific characteristics. Here below you can find some tips that will help you to know what type of warts you have been infected with. To make it easier to understand, I have divided them in groups.

How to identify Common Warts:

Common warts are one of the most frequent types. This type of warts includes warts on hands and most of the warts that can grow on your body.

  • They are grey/brown or flesh-colored rough growth.
  • 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 where they grow.
  • They usually grow on fingers, the back of the hand, arms or legs.

How to identify Plantar Warts:

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

  • They are flat or slightly raised hard growth.
  • Usually, they are rough and uneven.
  • Their color varies from yellow/brown to dark brown.
  • They can form 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 characteristic is that in most of the cases they develop during childhood. This is way, 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, 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 spread on the body.

  • They are long growths that protrudes above the surface of the skin.
  • Their color is white or in some cases yellow/brown.
  • The area where they develop the most is the face, particularly eyelids, lips and 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 (even without penetration).

  • They are small growth that resemble a cauliflower.
  • They usually have the same color of the skin but sometimes are white.
  • In most of the cases they form in groups.
  • They are not painful but they are very contagious and create a lot of discomfort.
  • They develop mainly on the genital area (penis, vagina, anus), but they can also manifest inside the mouth after oral sex.

Now that you know how to identify your warts, you can go to the second step of the cure: find a way to remove them. There are some options you can choose from. The most common treatments to eliminate warts are surgical removal, cryotherapy, electrocautery and laser surgery. All of these treatments remove warts in different ways but you should know that none of them is going to eradicate the virus from your body. This is because they only work on the symptoms and not on the cause.

The result is that even if warts are removed, most of the time painfully, costly and leaving scars, they are going to form again in the future. So, it is very important to find a cure that not only is going to be safe for you, but that will also make sure that the Human Papillomavirus will no longer be inside your body.

Filiform Warts

Filiform warts are a type of warts which presents very specific characteristics. You can easily notice them because they protrudes above the surface of the skin. They are usually not dangerous but they can cause a lot of embarrassment and be very hard to remove.

filiform wartsFiliform warts grow mainly on the face and neck. This is why most of the time you can referred to them as facial warts. The areas of the face which are easier to get infected are eyelids, lips and neck which are all parts that are very visible and hard to cover. Filiform warts are long and narrow. They are usually flesh-colored, but sometimes they can be white or yellow. One of their main characteristic is that they spread very fast and it is not rare to have many of them in just a small area.

What causes filiform warts?

As all type of warts, filiform warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). To be more specific, this infection is caused by HPV type 1, 2, 4, 27 and 29. The virus penetrates inside the body through cuts or scratches and uses blood vessel to get nourishment. The HPV develop very quickly inside the body and makes skin cells grow very fast. The heat and the humidity of the skin helps its reproduction. It is the quick growth of the virus that makes the warts protrude above the surface of the skin once they start forming.

Main symptoms of filiform warts

Filiform warts are very hard not to notice compare to other types like common warts. They are different from other warts because they are very aggressive and they form and spread very quickly on the skin. Symptoms that can make you aware of the infection are itch and a tingling sensation in the area where the wart is about to grow. Then the wart is going to protrude out of the skin causing sometimes bleeding especially if it grows around the eyes. Filiform warts can develop individually, but most of the times they will form in groups.

One of the easiest ways to get infected with the human papillomavirus is to use someone else’s towel or napkin. You should know that not every time you will be in contact with an infected object or an infected person you will get the virus. For example, if you have a strong immune system your body can fight the infection before it happens. Anyway, I strongly recommended you avoid physical contact with people who show clear sign of infection and have contracted the virus. In the case you get infected, you should be very careful not to touch the wart and if you do, to immediately wash your hands. This will prevent to spread the virus on other parts of your body.

Filiform wart removal treatment

Usually, doctors suggest the use of immunotherapy treatments to cure facial warts because surgical procedure can be dangerous and cause scarring. The cream or lotion used for the cure can be easily applied on the wart, or sometimes the medication can be directly injected inside it. The immunotherapy is going to strengthen your immune system and allow your body to remove the warts from the inside. If this treatment doesn’t produce any result other possibilities are to use salicylic acid, laser surgery or cryotherapy. These procedure are very aggressive and normally are only used when other methods have failed.

You should know that removal procedures, particularly the more invasive ones, can be very painful and can leave marks on your skin. Also, none of the treatments above is going to eliminate the HPV from your body. This means that once you have remove the warts, they can always come back in the future. The result is you will have to start the removal process over and over again.
