Warts are viral infection caused by the human papillomavirus virus. The growth of warts in the body is unpredictable, although can be avoided. There is a high risk of having warts if a person has poor hygiene. Children are the common victims of warts. Warts look like dry boils, in pink, flesh, or brown in color, with black specks. Some even distinguished it as of a tiny cauliflower on the skin. Since warts are viral, it can be contagious if you do not wash your open wound regularly. Although warts are not painful, they may bleed and make you feel itchy all the time.
Some people have resorted to treat their warts through home remedies. Since warts are contaminated with virus, some burn the infected part using a candle or lighter. Some get rid of the wart growth by cutting the warts using a nail clipper, while some prick the warts to remove them. Some even brush them with vinegar. But, these remedies will also give you much more problems in the future. You don’t want to have permanent scars visible to your skin, don’t you?
However, there is a particular type of warts that cannot be treated by the above-mentioned home remedies. There are the genital warts. Who would have imagined pricking the warts in the genital area? That is just ridiculous. And so, for genital warts treatment, professional wart removal is highly recommended. Who else knows best about your skin? Only your dermatologist does. Even if you only have the common type of warts on your hand or feet, you must still consult a dermatologist for the best treatment. You dermatologist can give free medication assistance to cure your warts. But, the most concern of people is the cost of having to consult to a doctor. It is true that consulting a dermatologist will really cost you more than to do your home remedies. But, it is the safest way to get healed. Especially for those with genital warts, these are transmitted through sexual intercourse; thus very critical. You need prescribed medications for that. Another concern is, since warts are not pleasant to look at, most people with warts, especially with genital warts, are ashamed to let anyone know they have these that is why they feel reluctant to see a doctor. You must ask yourself, would you rather let your pride win than be ill?
