Flat Warts

Flat warts, like all types of warts, form after a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. They have a white/yellow or flesh color and they are very easy to notice. You can recognize them because they are at the same level of the skin and not raised like other types of warts. They usually form on the face and neck but you can also have them on knees, elbows, arms, legs or the back of the hands.

Flat warts are smoother and smaller than other types and can grow one at a time or in groups. They are more easy to grow on children, since their body is not strong enough to fight this kind of infection. In adults, they usually form after shaving, when the skin is inflamed and more vulnerable to the virus. This is why is very common for men to have them on the face and for women to have them on legs. The HPV can enter very easily inside the body where there are cuts, scratches or wounds. 

Transmission of flat warts

Warts can be transmitted either through direct or indirect contact with the virus. There are many types of the human papillomavirus but the strain behind flat warts are only four: HPV 3, 10, 28 and 49. They can be spread through physical contact, touching an infected person or indirectly, using an object which has been previously infected by someone else such as a towel or skin products.

Because of this I strongly recommend being very careful when touching other people or using objects that belongs to others. You should know that flat warts are very easy to spread and they are extremely contagious. You can start developing a new wart just by touching a wart you already have and then touching another part of your body. This happens very frequently when you have for example warts on face. So, if you accidentally touch a wart I suggest you wash immediately your hands with soap.

How to cure and get rid of flat warts

Flat warts can be treated in different ways. Most of the time, the treatment is based on the case and on the number of warts you have. Doctors usually prescribe topical creams to remove flat warts but unfortunately this kind of treatment is effective only at the beginning. The reason is that until you don’t eradicate the HPV from your body, wart are going to form again and again.  

Sometimes if the situation is critical a lot of people decide to get their warts removed with laser surgery or cryotherapy. Both of these procedures are very costly, very painful and they can also cause visible scarring. The biggest problem with them is still the same. They are not going to act on the virus and once you have remove the warts they can always come back. The best way to solve your problem is to find a way to act on both the warts and the virus, possibly using a method that will not damage your skin and your health.

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.
