Warts are something that happen to a lot of us, at times these warts can be in prominent areas where we ideally wou
ld not like them to be. This article will hopefully help you understand your warts and give you tips and advice on concealing them and the option to remove them.
Warts are an infection of the top layer of the skin which is caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. The virus usually gets into contact with the outer layer of the skin usually
through a small cut and affects the growth cells of the skin and thus creates a wart.
They are a small growth, like a blister with a tough texture. They can appear on any part of the body, but usually appear on people’s hands. There are more than 100 identified unique types of HPV viruses that can cause warts.
People have warts because they have come into contact with a wart causing virus. The period of time between contact and developing a wart can be months, so it is difficult to pin point exactly what will have caused a wart specifically.
The most common way to get a wart is direct skin-to-skin contact such as shaking hands or using a towel that someone with warts have used.
If you have a wart in a prominent place on your body it is understandable that you will want to cover it. There are various websites that have articles of information about how to cover warts using cosmetics, including this one by Quora.
Although this is seen as a ‘worst case scenario’ on some rare cases, developing warts can become cancerous. If you are ever unsure about a wart or you begin to observe changes arrange a check up with your doctor. For support and advice about cancer check out The LOC‘s well informed website.
If you have warts, they have the ability to spread so although covering them with cosmetics will help your short-term problem, the situation may get worse if left untreated.
That is why it is probably best to seek a treatment option. Depending on the severity, location and how badly they are affecting your self esteem will determine what treatment option you seek.
There are over the counter products that are used to treat warts, but without consistent use they will not be effective, and results can take a few months to be seen.
Wart removal procedures are a much more fast and permanent solution. Warts are removed using Radio Surgery or CyroPen surgeries.
Radio Surgery involves the passage of radio waves onto the skin in order to perform the removal of the wart.
Cyropen involves a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure to be emitted onto the lesion which then allows the surgeon to remove the wart with millimetre precision.
There are many reputable cosmetic clinics in the UK to get wart removal treatments such as The Snowberry Lane Clinic which is nearby London.
