Understand what is HPV is very important if you want to remove your warts. Warts are small growths which raised above the surface of the skin. They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a group of more than 100 related virus. Each one of them is labelled with a number and is the cause of specific kinds of warts. For example, HPV types 1, 2 and 4 are the cause of plantar warts whereas types 6, 11, 30 and 51 are the cause of genital warts.
Infections from the human papillomavirus are very common. They are usually not harmful or painful if treated in time. HPV infections can go away within 8 to 12 months, but there is a huge downside in waiting for them to pass. Since warts are very contagious once they form, it is very easy for them to spread from one part of your body to another or even to infect other people. This is why you should always remove them as soon as they manifest to prevent further contamination.
How do you get HPV?
The HPV virus is transmitted from person to person through physical or indirect contact with an infected person or an infected object. The places where it is more likely to get the virus are swimming pools, public showers and bathrooms. In the case of genital warts the easiest way is through any kind of unprotected sexual activity (vaginal, anal and oral). For this reason I strongly suggest you always use protection, especially if you have intercourse with a new partner.
Usually, the virus enter inside the body through cuts or damages on the skin. For example, if you have the habit to bite your fingernails you are exposing your hands to a high risk of infection. Cuts from shaving also provide an opening for infection. This is why men have often warts on the face and women on the legs. To avoid any possible self-contamination, a recommendation I want to give you is to always wash your hands if you happen to touch accidentally one of your warts. This will make sure from you won’t spread the virus on other areas of your body.
HPV symptoms and treatment
The main symptom of a HPV infection is the formation of warts on your skin. First you are going to experience itch and pain in the area. After few days, you will notice a tiny growth on the skin with small black dots in it. You should know that these are clotted blood vessels, a common characteristic of warts. It is very important to not mistake this black dots for blackheads or pimples, because differently from these warts are very contagious. To be sure you have developed a wart, keep in mind that warts are:
- raised hard growth on the skin
- rough to the touch
- present small black dots
Since warts are very contagious, it is always better to treat them immediately. Therapies that doctors usually suggest for their removal are laser surgery, cryotherapy, surgical excision or electrocautery. All of these procedure are used to remove your warts from the skin and in most of the cases they are not only costly but also very painful. The biggest problem with them is that they can only remove warts but not the virus which has caused them. This means that the human papillomavirus will remain inside your body and develop new warts only after some time.
