Warts Treatment in Chelmsford

Small, harmless rough growths on the skin caused by a viral infection.

Common Causes of Warts

Warts are harmless but can be bothersome or unsightly, developing most frequently on hands and feet. Here are the causes:

HPV Infection: Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) which can enter the body through cuts or breaks in the skin.

Direct Contact: Warts are highly contagious and can be spread through direct contact with an infected person's warts.

Autoinoculation: This occurs when warts spread from one area of the body to another through scratching or touching.

Weakened Immune System: A weakened immune system can make it easier for the HPV virus to cause warts.

Unsanitary Conditions: Wart-causing viruses thrive in warm, moist environments such as public swimming pools and locker rooms with unsanitary conditions.  So, coming into contact with these surfaces increases your risk of getting warts.

Age: Children and teenagers are more prone to developing warts, likely due to their still-developing immune systems. However, anyone can develop warts at any age.

Genetics: Some people may be genetically predisposed to developing warts due to inherited traits.
