Common warts are skin growths which are caused by human papilloma virus which are commonly growing on the hands and fingers and predominantly affect the young adults and children population.
Typically, warts located on the hands vary in color from flesh to tan, or from white to pinkish. They are mall in size, rough to touch with grainy texture and emerge singly or in clusters. Cutting the warts open may result to bleeding and may perhaps reveal black spots termed as wart seeds which are in fact, small blood vessels which have already clotted.
Warts found growing on the hands and fingers are harmless, thus they don’t require any treatment. For cosmetic purposes and for the purpose of preventing its spread to other body areas, they can be removed. It is important not to clip the wart as it might spread the virus to other region of the body when it breaks open. If a child has warts, it is good to cover his hands with cloth or bandage to prevent him from pulling the warts out.
Usually, home treatment is enough but if it fails to work, there are medical procedures the doctor can suggest. Traditionally, the way for removing common warts include freezing them through cryosurgery or burning them off, Cantharidin application, minor surgical removal and laser surgery, however, these methods are very expensive, leave permanent scars and do not guarantee that these warts won’t recur.
