Warts and Their Causes
What Are Warts And How They Are Caused?
Warts are small, rough growth, cauliflower like solid blisters that usually affect the hands and feet but can also emerge on other areas, like the genitals, face & mouth, around and under the nails, nose, neck, arms and legs. There are over a dozen types of warts.Regardless of the type, warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This virus can take over a 100 forms, and each is capable of causing a unique wart.
While some HPV forms are contagious, others are not, but then there are types that thrive and spread from one body part to another. Being a common dermatological condition, it is important to accustom and prepare yourself before you have an unwelcoming encounter.
Common Types of Warts and Their Causes:
PLANTAR WARTS:This type of wart is caused by coming into contact with the HPV in its natural habitat, i.e. usually in a wet and warm environment, like gyms, bathrooms and pools. Furthermore, the virus transmits through open wounds, like cuts and lacerations, so avoiding using public bathrooms or pools when injured is preferable. This type of wart is not contagious and usually emerges on and under the feet.
PALMER WARTS:These types of warts are again caused by the HPV virus but instead of feet develop on the hands and are neither painful nor infectious.
FLAT WARTS:The flat type of warts occur commonly on the face, neck, arms and legs, and the virus can transfer by coming into contact with an infected person or using razor blades or towels while having an open skin or wounds.
FILLIFORM WARTS:These warts grow around the nose and mouth and are commonly caused by using a product previously used by an infected person. Since these warts appear on a noticeable location, they can prove to be a nightmare.
PERIUNGUAL WARTS:The periungual warts are most commonly found on the hands, feet, under and around the nails. They usually begin with filliform warts around the mouth and when nails are bitten, the virus spreads to the fingers and all the way down to the hands.
GENITAL WARTS:This is probably the worst and most serious form of this condition because they are a type of STD (sexually transmitted diseases). They can affect your sex life and are spread through physical contact. Sometimes, a person can only get the infection and not warts which means they can spread the virus without even realising it.
The best way to prevent being infected is implementing a thorough personal hygiene routine and staying away from those affected.

Scabies is a skin condition that causes the skin to itch. It is caused by a tiny burrowing mite, which is called Sarcoptes scabei. The presence of the mite in the burrowed areas causes intense itching, especially at night. This a contagious condition, which can quickly spread through physical contact in places like nursing homes, schools, prisons etc. An estimate shows that scabies infect over 300 million humans worldwide per year. This eight-legged microscopic mite creates a tunnel in the human skin and lays eggs in it. These larvae move under the surface of the skin and spread across the whole body, once hatched. Dogs, cats and mice can also be affected by the disease.
It usually takes 2 - 6 weeks for the symptoms to develop. Signs and symptoms of scabies involve itching, rashes, sores and thick crusts on the surface of the skin.
Some of the risk factors of scabies are:
- An infected person can easily pass scabies to his/her household or sexual partners. Scabies in adults is usually sexually acquired.
- The likelihood of scabies increases easily under crowded conditions which involves close body and skin contact. Nursing homes, prisons, and several types of care facilities are sites of scabies outbreaks.
- Scabies spreads through direct, prolonged skin-to-skin contact with a person who has mites.
Complications of scabies include:
- Persistent and vigorous scratching can break the surface of your skin which can lead to secondary bacterial infections. Impetigo, a superficial infection is quite a common occurrence in case of such.
- Crusted scabies is the most severe form of scabies which is common among certain groups. People suffering from diseases such as HIV or leukemia and severely ill people who have weakened immune systems are at a higher risk of contracting this condition. This condition, also known as Norwegian scabies is very contagious and also hard to cure. Depending on the symptoms and severity of the condition, appropriate medications and creams are prescribed by medical professionals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
