Are You Sure It's A Wart?

As a holistic health expert who focuses on skin care issues I can tell you that there is a lot of confusion when it comes to warts, what causes them, and how to treat them.

Since warts come from a virus that has embedded itself down in the skin cells they can be difficult to remove permanently. Some of the wart viruses are contagious, like the types of warts children typically get on their hands from playing with each other's toys.

Other warts like the types people get from soil are usually not easily spread from human to human. The most contagious type of wart caused from the HPV (Human Papillomaviruses) of which there are 6 types!

I want to give you a basic rundown of what kind of warts exist and a way to identify them. That way you can choose the best way to address them, through the natural methods in my book "No More Moles Warts or Skin Tags" or with traditional medical treatments.

Common Warts (Verruca Vulgaris caused by viruses)

These are raised cauliflower looking bumps called papules or plaques. They have a rough surface and frequently will have small tiny spots which are from blood vessels that have clotted.

Common warts also tend to flake as they grow and are painful to treat because they wrap around the nerve endings in the skin. They are most common on the hands, elbows, knees, and bottoms of the feet, but can occur anywhere.

Flat Warts

By description they are flat-topped, smoother looking warts. They are usually dark brown or darker than your normal skin color.

Flat warts are most commonly found on the face of women and the darker your skin tone the more likely you are to deal with them. Most people confuse them with moles which are completely different in their nature and source. Because they are caused by a virus they can spread easily by shaving.

Plantar Warts

Are commonly found on the bottom of the feet or toes. They are rough to the touch and often painful.

They are often mis-diagnosed as corns or calluses. They will frequently break and choke off blood vessels in them causing black dots.

Plantar warts usually grow into the skin rather than coming outwards as most other warts, which can make them more painful that other types of warts to deal with.

Obviously there are other types of warts but like I stated earlier, these are the most common you need to know about. Another common one is Genital warts, but I will not touch on that subject today.

I hope that you have found this information helpful today and will use its a valuable reference tool. Warts can be unsightly, embarrassing, and even dangerous if left untreated.

Using this information will help you identify the kind of wart you may be dealing with so you can then choose the best option for you. There are ways to remove these little skin devils that are naturally-based, effective, and far less painful than conventional means. I will discuss this further in my next post.
