Warts are viral growths that can be formed anywhere on the skin, but their most common sites are hands, plantae, face and neck. It is proved that the cause of their appearance is HPV, human papillomavirus, which has more than 100 species, many of which contribute to the malignization of growths. Therefore we cannot trifle with the appearance of any growths on our body, be sure to consult a dermatologist to determine the exact diagnosis, the type and nature of the growth, and to differentiate it from other skin damages. In this article you will learn how to get rid of warts on hands, how to treat and remove these growths on the skin.
Why do warts on hands and fingers appear? What are the causes of them, how are they transmitted? Almost 20% of adolescents and children at least once had contact with warts among their environment and 10% of them face this disease at different ages. Infection with different types of papillomavirus is very easy given the presence of micro traumas on the skin:
Hand and plantar warts are caused by the following HPV types: 1-5, 49, 57, 19-24, 26 -29, 1, 12, 10, 14, 15, 17, 19. The incubation period of those virus types is 2-6 months. However, even in case of infection with the papillomavirus, a strong and healthy body easily stop its proliferation and progression, so the main cause of appearance of warts on the skin of children and adults is reduction of the body defenses – malnutrition, prolonged stress, hormonal disorders, fatigue, negative external effects such as radiation, chemical emissions of industrial cities, bad food and other factors.
The virus is transmitted most rapidly in areas with warm and humid air, therefore saunas, swimming pools, spas, sports, and gyms are the most frequent sites of infection transmission.
Most of us have had a wart on a part of our body at some time in our lives. Warts are one of the most common infections caused by a microscopic virus that infects the skin.Most warts are harmless and can disappear on their own without a warts removal treatment. However, warts on parts of the body that are bumped or touched frequently can be painful and cause bleeding. Warts can also be embarrassing if they occur on the face or appear in noticeable clusters on the hands and feet.
Warts removal is a safe, effective and relatively painless procedure that can be used on even the most sensitive body parts. Laser warts removal can also be used to prevent warts from reoccurring.
Laser warts removal involves targeting the wart with a laser; the laser passes through the upper layer of the skin called the epidermis and targets the tiny blood vessels that feed the wart near the dermis, the middle layer of skin. Laser warts removal kills the blood vessels feeding the wart, effectively starving it until it dries up and falls off. The laser kills only the wart infected area and leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed and undamaged.
