Human papillomavirus is responsible for the widespread skin ailment known as warts (HPV). On any part of the body, including the hands, feet, and genital region, they appear as tiny, rough growths on the skin. Warts can be transferred both directly by coming into touch with the virus and indirectly by coming into contact with materials that have come into contact with the virus.
Warts can be treated using a variety of methods, such as over-the-counter topical drugs, cryotherapy (freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen), and surgical removal. The location, size, and medical history of the patient, in addition to the wart's location and size, will all influence the recommended course of therapy.
Warts may become unpleasant or itchy if they are not treated, and they may spread and continue to grow. Due to their ugly appearance, warts can occasionally also cause emotional anguish. Even while warts are generally not thought to be a severe health risk, it is advised that they be treated in order to stop their growth and to cure any accompanying symptoms.
