How to get rid of warts

Warts may disappear in a few months or in some cases last for years and reoccur for decades. Some types of wart-causing papilloma virus types are known to cause cervical cancer. Knowing how to get rid of warts is important because the longer you have warts the more chances you have of developing harmful side effects.

Warts are caused by what is called the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are different types of warts and the most common warts are the rough looking lesions often found on people's hands and fingers.

There is another type, which is much smaller and smoother. this type can be found on the hands and fingers too, but usually likes to show up on the face and eyes. You can also get warts on your feet and in your genital area, the so called genital warts.

The good thing about warts is that they usually appear on the surface of the skin. The one type of warts you should really fear is genital warts they are very contagious and have been blamed for most cases of cervical cancer as well as decreases in sperm in man.

Learning how to get rid of warts should not be a science, you just need the right formula. You just want to get rid of warts once and for all, quickly and effectively, as we are all used to today - by using chemicals. And I will give my honest opinion on what products you should look for at the end of my article. But first, a short recapitulation of the popular plantar wart treatment options and the reason why they fail.

The duct tape wart removal method is one of the most highly used wart removal methods. It requires very little work and includes moderate pain and most Americans have it laying around the house making it extremely popular. Apply a strip of duct tape to the wart for one day and then peel the duct tape off. As you peel the tape off you will also pull off some wart layers. The more times you apply the tape and peel it off the more layers of the wart you will remove. This wart remedy can take several weeks but can get the job done effectively.

Why does this happen? What you need to understand is that most of the products available do not get deep enough into the skin for their chemical ingredients to work effectively. The stated aim of these products is to kill the tissue that contains the wart virus and thus kill the virus. Unfortunately by not being able penetrate deeply enough to remove all of the virus infected cells of a wart, the virus survives to re-grow on a later day. This can lead the wart sufferer to a situation where he is treating the same areas over and over gain - sometimes for years.

Well, you can certainly prevent warts from spreading by not picking at them if you already have warts. You can use bandages to cover them up. Warts also seem to be harder to control when in moist conditions, always try to keep your hands as dry as possible. Although it is sometimes tempting, do not shave, comb or brush areas where warts are present, this may cause the virus to spread. If you happen to touch your warts make sure.
