Warts are a type of skin lesion that may appear anywhere on the body; contrary to what many think, warts are caused by the HPV virus and are contagious. The Human papillomavirus (HPV) is extraordinarily infectious and has more than 100 strains; some are transmitted through sexual contact, and some through as little as a handshake. Genital warts are among the most contagious and can be challenging to remove.
Regardless of where you have warts, we will get rid of them.
These small, seemingly harmless growths may feel like they have appeared out of nowhere; however, they result from an infection in the top layer of skin caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus family.
Doctors worldwide and in Whitby, Ontario, Canada, recommend regular skin exams to help avoid unwanted skin lesions, infections and cancer. A person with a wart should see their doctor or dermatologist if:
- the wart is on their face or genitals
- they have a growth they suspect is not a wart
- they have multiple warts
- they have itchy, burning, bleeding, or painful warts
- they have a weakened immune system
- they have diabetes
Variety of warts
Common warts - Common warts mainly develop on the fingers, nails, toes, or the back of the hand. Common warts grow on the knees; they are rough to the touch and can vary in size from 1 millimetre to one centimetre.
Planter warts are more common on the feet and ankles; they look like rough, calloused skin and often have small black dots on the surface. A person with plantar warts may push them onto the surface of the foot while walking, causing them to feel like a pebble is stuck in their foot.
Filiform warts - These warts are long and spikey and tend to appear around the mouth, nose and eyes mostly; they grow quickly.
Genital warts - are a result of sexually transmitted HPV. Genital warts emerge in and around the groin area in places like the vulva, vagina, cervix, anus, penis and scrotum and can also pop up in the mouth and throat. Depending on the size and location of warts, they may cause pain, discomfort, and even bleeding.
For the most part, warts are harmless, and many options are available for removing them; our clinic in Whitby offers top-of-the-line solutions to all your wart removal needs and other dermatology services.
