Many people with warts have a number of questions about the best removal methods. Most people with warts also have questions like, what causes warts, are they contagious and how they can be prevented? Here in this blog post, we will answer these questions, as well as provide you with safe and effective methods to remove your warts.
What causes warts?
Warts are caused by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). There are many forms of this virus, (HPV) and the different forms are usually responsible for the different types of warts that appear as growths on the skin. The different types of warts include flat, plantar, common and genital warts.
Warts are definitely contagious, and occur when the virus comes in contact with the skin. This virus is most likely to enter your skin in a place where the skin is broken, like through cuts or scratches. It is still unknown why some people are more prone to warts than others. However, it is known that children are a lot more likely to get warts as compared to adults. This is because their immune system hasn’t yet built up their defences.
If you have warts or someone in your home has these, you should avoid sharing the same towel or bathmat that the person with wart uses. Warts can also spread from one part of the body to another. So, you should avoid touching any of your body parts after touching the wart.
While you can’t prevent warts from occurring, there are many ways a person can take to reduce the risks of getting warts. As warts are caused by a virus, one easy method of prevention is washing your hands regularly. It is also important to keep your skin cuts free and healthy. Avoid sharing towels or bathmats in public locations like gym and when showering in public locker rooms always wear flip-flops.
