A seed wart is a type of wart that grows on hands and on feet. Similar to other common warts, a seed wart looks like a small dot and this is why it is often mistaken for corns or calluses.
The black dots appearance is due to the blood vessels that have grown inside and around the wart. When they are classified as palmer warts they usually develop on fingers, around the nails, on the back of the hand or on the palm. In the case of plantar warts, they may grow on or under the foot.
How do you get seed warts?
Warts are very contagious and their transmission can happen through direct and indirect contact. Since seed warts are either warts on hand or planter warts, shacking the hand of an infected person or walking bare foot on an previously infected floor are both very easy way to get infected. As all types of warts, a seed wart is also caused by the human papillomavirus, a very contagious virus that survives where there is heat and moisture. This is the reason why changing rooms, public showers or swimming pools are the easiest place for it to be transmitted.
Children and people with a weak immune system are the easiest target for this infection. You should also know if you get infected, that when a seed wart develop on your hand, it is possible to spread it on other parts of the body just touching them. So, even if sometimes seed warts can go away without any cure, by the time they are disappear you have probably already infected many other areas.
Treatments for seed wart
The first thing to do in case you develop a seed wart is to be very careful not transmit the virus to other people or to infect objects that other people can use. This is why, you should remove them as soon as they form. Conventional medicine offers few possibilities for their removal:
Cryotherapy: with this treatment, the warts are frozen through the use of liquid nitrogen and than removed. After the treatment it is possible to be left with scars.
Surgical Treatment: in this way the warts are going to be removed with a surgical cut. It is a painful way but also very quick.
Laser Surgery: a surgical laser is utilized to remove the warts without any pain. It is a very expensive option but also the most effective.
The worst thing about this treatments is not that they are painful, very expensive or they can live scars, but is the fact that they DO NOT actually solve your problem. This is because they just remove the warts and not the virus which has caused them. So, after you have invested so much to have one of these treatments, your seed wart is going to develop again maybe in just few days.
