Warts

What Are Warts ?

Warts are non-cancerous skin growths caused by a virus in the outer layer of the skin. Warts can be mildly contagious from a person or an area/ location. They can appear anywhere on the skin, but most likely on the fingers, hands, and arms. They are most common in children and young adults aged between 1 and 30.

What Triggers The Formation Of Warts ?

  • An infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Public toilets and shower
  • Skin injuries
  • Compromised immune system
  • Certain medications and medical conditions

How Would You Know If You Have Warts ?

  • In case of warts, you may observe a small raised bump on the skin. The warts can be very small and can grow.
  • The warts may be rough to touch, white or pinkish in color and fleshy in appearance.
  • You may not observe any pain or complain of itching in the warts

What Should You Do In Case Your Symptoms Worsen?

  • In case the color and appearance of the warts change, make sure you do not take it lightly. Instead reach to a doctor.
  • If the current set of medications or treatment is not affecting the warts.
  • In case you spot a growth and are still unable to decide if they are warts or not, make sure you go see a doctor.

What Are The Available Treatment Options?

  • At first, your doctor shall examine you for the presence of warts. In most cases, the warts go away without any treatment.
  • In severe cases, the doctor may prescribe you with medications containing salicylic acid (that will help to remove the layers of the warts)
  • In complicated cases, when the medications and home remedies both fail to improve the symptoms, the doctor may suggest a laser treatment.
