Each type varies in shape and size; they may even differ from person to person. To identify which one is plaguing your body,look close enough so you’re able to tell where it starts and where it ends.

What Causes Warts?

Now that we’ve identified the different types of warts let’s explore what causes these pesky spots before diving into treatments.

Warts are caused by none other than – drum roll please – a virus called HPV( aka human papillomavirus). This pesky virus enters the skin through small cuts or openings and creates hard skin growths in return. It is vital to understand that anyone can get infected with this virus, but people who have weaker immune systems may be more susceptible to it.

Here’s a quick fun fact: The strain responsible for making (most) genital stuff go bump ain’t one yo’ common strains unleashing bumps all over ya BOD!

How To Prevent Warts From Spreading?

Before taking action against your wart troubles, take notewarts spread quickly!( yikes!) They work through contact, as well as sharing personal items such towels or socks among those whom want nothing but spare part just keeps going mucking up our collective healthscape wt increasing its numbers! Here are some tips on how not to spread it:

  • Wear protective footwear in public areas like showers.

When Should You Visit A Doctor?

While warts can be an annoyance, they’re typically harmless. They usually disappear on their own unless they’re infected or caught by a weak immune system, but it is in your best interest to consult with a healthcare professional if:

  • The wart becomes painful
  • Oozes pus
  • Changes color
  • doesn’t show promise of improvement within weeks.

How To Remove Warts?

There are several methods available for removing warts; each method works differently depending on the type size & the individual’s immunity. Some use proven medications or surgery to eliminate them while natural remedies using essential oils and plant extracts have also shown success,all differing in efficacy so its better to try until you find one that ocks yer socks off(redeeming tho I cannot imagine what things would possess someone enough for that) Here are some methods worth trying:

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid harnesses powers derived from willow bark as part of folks getting clean these many moons past! (JL too much Harry Potter.) It helps dissolve keratin (protein covering our skin) and breakdowns the affected area till the wart disappears into oblivion.

It’s important to note that this kind of treatment requires consistent application over several weeks/months,, varying lengths deending upon intensity level of ailment/immunity response therto. However, If used persistently enough it’ll likely work eventually leaving no signs behind except potential scarring(Loved ones/babies moms not responsible!).

Duct Tape For Wart Removal

Believe it or not putting duct tape on warts may help subdue mole hills back down into zephyr clouds . That right: good ol’ sticky duct tape has been known to give an equal solution like pricier OTC alternatives when fighting against pesky small forms of HPV activity serving widespread disruptions families experience daily(it might actually be more affordable with less filler in its offerings).

It’s important to note that this method requires persistence, consistency and eventually might result in a formidable-yet-priceless lifetime habit attachment of co-traveler.


Cryotherapy involves the freezing of warts using liquid nitrogen. The technique works by destroying affected tissue by applying an extreme cold shock which causes the cells to die off.

While it may sound violent,(JL:Ice ice baby!) it has shown great success in removing particularly stubborn warts; however, more than one treatment may be required(J) depending on scale &growth likely side effects include pain, swelling or skin damage.

Laser Therapy

This therapy also targets specific wart areas with intense light pulses reflecting against one another until they implode without causing permanent scarring. It’s an effective procedure but far from affordable for many folks (think more medical industry versus DIY). On average anywhere from 1-16 office visits can be necessary depending on severity levels as well as insurance coverage hurdles thereby pricing several people out all together

Natural Remedies For Wart Removal:

For our environment-conscious peeps these methods have pop up help fight forward while staying sustainable along the way !

Tea Tree Oil

Studies have concluded tea tree oil( a natural antifungal agent) to aid when fighting off any infection symptoms HPV presents due to its bonding with slightly oily barrier protection inducing plant extracts! So much so tis said putting 2/3 drops into Aloe vera gel before smearing onto infected area is ideal course of action owing mainly because TTO requires caution whilst application!


In case you haven’t annoyed your neighbors enough today try going ahead and rubbing minced garlic directly onto the wart – just don’t forget some disinfectant afterwards! You’ll want at least two independent studies concluding that aside from being stinky AF consuming raw garlic only warrants reputation enhancing data(self-context everything unless proven otherwise!).

Typically, warts appear within a month and can disappear up to two years, provided one doesn’t share them around . I sincerely hope this article has been helpful in identifying your wart type(s) as well as pointing out potentially effective treatments/reducing/expunging unwanted inflammed quarries of flesh.
