Keep con­ta­gious warts at bay

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BMS INDULGE -

WARTS and “ver­ru­cas” can be caused by viruses that en­ter our body. Warts can be con­ta­gious so we need to keep them at bay.

The hu­man pa­pil­loma virus (HPV) in warts can spread through di­rect and in­di­rect con­tact, for ex­am­ple a hand­shake or bath towel shar­ing.

The virus can also spread to dif­fer­ent parts of the body. This vi­ral in­fec­tion be­comes worse when your im­mu­nity is weak.

Warts and ver­ru­cas are com­monly found on hands and feet, knees, el­bows with rough “cau­li­flower-like” sur­face.

Warts are com­monly found on chil­dren af­ter four and teenagers up to age 18 be­cause they are prone to in­fec­tion due to their out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and weaker im­mu­nity. They can be in­fected through skin con­tact with friends, on the foot­ball field, play­ground, school, pub­lic toi­let and other places.

Skin cells on warts re­leases thou­sands of viruses and in­fect oth­ers through touch. Kids can spread the virus all over their body or to their sib­lings or friends when they scratch their warts and play.

Wart­ner is de­signed based on the cy­rother­apy method used by doc­tors, where they freeze the wart in one treat­ment. At-57°C, it causes a less-painful sen­sa­tion dur­ing the treat­ment com­pared to liq­uid ni­tro­gen and cures the wart ef­fec­tively with just a 20-sec­ond ap­pli­ca­tion. The wart drops off af­ter 10 to 14 days.
