Warts? What planet do they come from?
Have you ever wondered where warts come from? or why do they appear? Surely you have had a little one for many years and you have never paid attention to it. The thing is,they can mean something serious or not. Here we will explain a little about these wrinkled bumps. Warts are granular bumps that appear on the skin, usually in the area of the hands. They are rough to the touch and may also have some black dots that are usually clotted blood. Warts are caused by a virus that is transmitted by touch. After being exposed to the virus, it can take two to 6 months for the wart to appear. They are usually harmless and disappear on their own, although some people decide to eliminate them because they can be annoying.
Common warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), this virus,unfortunately,is quite common and there are around 150 types of HPV,only some cause warts on the hands. The human papillomavirus can be spread through sexual contact or by sharing towels or shared objects. Each person’s immune system responds differently to HPV,for this reason,not everyone who comes into contact with this virus develops warts. Who are the most vulnerable people to get warts?
● Children and young people
because their bodies have not developed immunity to the virus.
● People with weak immune systems.
How can you reduce the risk of getting common warts?
● Avoid direct contact with warts
including those you already have.
● Not picking out warts is very important
because if you do, you will only spread the virus.
● Be careful with cleaning.
A correct amount of zinc and vitamin C contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system,which can prevent the appearance of warts.
You should eat foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals,opt for green leafy vegetables or those from the sea. Both rich in B vitamins and calcium,this class of foods increases the capacity of your immune system and keeps you prepared to fight the symptoms of HPV.
