When it comes to warts, there are many individuals who wonder who can get them. Honestly,
just about anyone can get a wart. Warts are common in children, adults, and even the elderly.
At any point in time, anyone can develop a wart, no matter what their age, sex, or race. As
mentioned above, most warts are harmless. The only problem is that some are painful.
Honestly, the pain associated with a wart all depends on where it is located. For that reason,
you may or may not want to have your wart removed.

There are many myths and truths about warts. I remember like most of you as a child to not
dare pick up a frog or you will get warts. I really don't know who came up with that theory.
The truth is frogs have nothing to do with warts. To be perfectly honest most warts are really
painless. They can be referred to as a lump that is non-cancerous. Most of us have a immune
system to the warts and usually can't get them.

Some people however can be susceptible however they usually won't last long and they will
soon disappear. For those that might be susceptible to them I will go over the different types
of warts and how to treat the type you may have.

   1. The first type is what we call the most common ones. These warts will have show up
      on your skin usually on a rough raised surface that can appear anywhere on your body
      but most of the time they can be found on the top part of your hand.

   2. Another type of wart is called a flat wart. Unlike the common wart that makes your
      skin feel rough this type will make your skin feel smooth and is a very small type of
      wart that that can appear in a cluster form and will mostly develop on a part of your
      hands, legs, and mostly will appear on your face. These warts are usually so small that
      you may not notice them.

   3. There is also a wart known as the plantar wart, which is commonly misspelled as
      ‘planters warts’. This type of wart can feel like a callus and will show up on the
      bottom part of your foot. If you have had a callus you know how painful that can be
      when you put pressure on it. This type of wart can be painful similar to what a callus
      will feel like when putting pressure on the foot.

   4. A fourth type is a wart known as the filiform. This type of wart will show up around
      your face area such as your eyelids and even your neck.


You do not necessarily need to have your wart or warts removed, but you may wish to.
Despite being harmful and painless, there are some warts that can be painful. In most cases,
you will find that the pain associated with a wart depends on where it is located. For instance,
planters warts on feet may be painful, especially if you are walking on them each day. Also,
warts on your hands may be painful, especially if you use your hands all day, say at work. If
that is the case, you may seriously want to think about having your warts removed. After the
removal procedure has been completed, you should find yourself pain-free.

You may also want to have your flat wart or planters warts removed if they are noticeable. It
is no secret that some warts, especially those large in size, are unattractive or unflattering. Of
course, you shouldn't worry about what everyone else thinks, but you need to do what is right
for you. Therefore, if the warts on your body are causing you discomfort, not physical
discomfort, but discomfort associated with your appearance, you may want to think about
having those warts removed.

It is also important to note that warts can be transferred from person to person. Although this
can happen, it doesn't always. There are some individuals who are more susceptible to warts
than others. Since you do not know who those individuals are, you may want to think about
having your warts removed. You may want to do this, no matter where your warts or located,
but you may want to be a little bit more concerned with the warts that are on your hand, since
you will likely shake hands with others. If you find yourself regularly around other people,
whether those people be your own family or co-workers, you may also want to think about
wart removal, if not for yourself then for those around you.

When it comes to wart removal, many individuals make a mistake. That mistake is going
with the first removal option that pops into their mind. This is often treating their warts at
home. While you can, easily, treat your own warts at home, did you know that you have other

Before making a decision, as to which type of wart removal method you would like to use,
you are advised to examine all of your options. Doing so will ensure that you choose the wart
removal method that best fits your needs.

As mentioned above, many people choose to treat their warts, right at home. This is usually
done with an over-the-counter warts removal product. If you are interested in using an over-
the-counter warts removal products, you are advised to shop online or at one of your local
retail stores. These products can often be purchased, for a reasonable price, at most
department stores, drug stores, and grocery stores.

As you might expect, when it comes to over-the-counter wart removers, you will have a
number of different options. There are multiple products currently available for sale. When


choosing a product, you are advised to examine the wart removal process, as well as the price
of the product. While you will want to spend your money wisely, you will also want an over-
the-counter wart remover that is easy to use. If and when you make the decision to purchase
one of these products, you are advised to thoroughly read and follow all directions.

In the United States, a large number of individuals develop warts on their body. Warts,
although they can be unpleasant, are almost always harmless. Despite being harmless, there
are many men, women, and children who wish to have their warts removed. If you are
undergoing a wart removal for the first time, you may want to think about visiting a
professional healthcare worker. Many individuals feel more comfortable undergoing their
first removal when it is done by a professional.

Despite having your warts removed by a professional, there are a number of important factors
that you should take into consideration. One of those factors is the type of doctor you plan on
using. If you have a primary healthcare physician, a doctor that you see on a regular basis,
you may be able to have your wart or warts removal performed by that doctor. Although a
large number of primary care physicians do wart removal, there are some who do not. If your
doctor does not do any wart removal procedures, they will likely refer you to someone else
who does. That person may be a dermatologist; a professional skin doctor.

In addition to the type of healthcare professional you plan on visiting, it is also important to
consider the removal method that will be used. This is important because your body may
have a negative reaction to certain removal methods. Perhaps, that is why you are advised to
try and schedule an appointment with your primary care physician; they tend to know your
medical history. Before undergoing any treatment, regardless of whether or not you are a new
patient, you are advised to inform your physician or dermatologist of any medical
complications or allergies that you may have. This information may not only have an impact
on the success of the wart removal, but it may also have an impact on your health.

As mentioned above, most warts are completely harmless. This is because almost all warts
are considered non-cancerous growths. Despite being relatively harmless, your wart may be
tested. Primary care physicians do not always test warts, unless they are given a cause for
concern. On the other hand, dermatologists are healthcare professionals that have a focus on
skin and everything that is associated with it. For that reason, there is a good chance that a
dermatologist will test your wart or warts. This is completely normal; therefore, you do not
need to be alarmed if your wart is taken for a biopsy.

After the procedure has ended, your primary care physician or dermatologist will likely
provide you with a set of instructions. These instructions will most likely tell you how to
properly care for your wound. This is extremely important. Many individuals do not realize
that wart removal procedures may result in scaring, even those that are professionally done.

However, the scarring doesn't always depend on the procedure used; it tends to depend on the


are given to the wound afterwards. That is why it is important that you follow all directions
given to you by your doctor. These directions may include keeping your wound covered at all
times or the application of a skincare cream.

The duct tape wart removal treatment is, in a way, considered a home remedy. Home
remedies are used to describe treatments that are given right at home. They are also used to
describe ingredients that most individuals already have inside their home. Since you would
likely already have duct tape in your possession and use it at home, duct tape can easily be
considered a home remedy.

In addition to being considered a home remedy, the duct tape method is also considered a free
or low-cost wart removal option. If you do not have duct tape in your possession, you can
purchase it from most dollar stores. When compared to other wart removal methods, which
include professional removals, as well as the use of over-the-counter wart removers, the duct
tape method is money saving. Depending on the type of health insurance you have, if you
even have any at all, it can be too expensive for you to have your warts professionally
removed. While most over-the-counter wart removers are considered relatively inexpensive,
they can retail for around five to thirty dollars, why pay more money than you have to?

While it is important to understand the benefits of using duct tape as a wart remover, it is also
important to examine how you use it. To remove your warts, you are advised to place duct
tape over them. You will want to keep the area covered for around six to seven days. After
the six or seven days are up, you will then remove the tape. At this time, you will want to
soak the area in water. When in the water, it is advised that you use a pumice stone, or any
other items that are similar to the stone. You will want to use the pumice stone to scrape the
area. Now, for some individuals the wart disappears right away, but for others it takes longer.
If your wart is still present, after following the above mentioned directions, you are advised
to redo the process again. After a couple more weeks, your warts should no longer be an

Although the process seems relatively easy, there are many individuals, maybe even your self
included, who wonder if this method really works. Of course, it is important to remember that
different individuals react differently to different things, including certain wart removal
methods. With this in mind, using duct tape for wart removal is effective. In fact, it is so
effective, that a number of healthcare professionals have even started advising their clients to
use duct tape as a wart remover. Their reason for doing this is that duct tape is not only
cheap, but it is also pain free, unlike many other wart removal methods.

If you were looking for more scientific proof, it has been noted that warts will often disappear
on their own, overtime. This happens when the body's immune system beings to find and
fight them and their bacteria. It has been said, in numerous scientific studies, that duct tape
seems to help hurry up the process. In a way, when duct tape covers up a wart the immune
system seems to start working faster. That is the reason why warts tend to disappear within a
couple of weeks or months after using the above mentioned duct tape method.


Despite the proof that duct tape works as a way to remove unwanted warts, there are still
many individuals who are uncomfortable with the thought of trying this treatment. If you are
one of those individuals, there is no need to worry. There are a number of other effective wart
removal methods that you can use; however, it is important to remember that they may not be
as low-cost or as effective as duct tape.

Despite being harmless, there are many individuals who are concerned with the warts that
they have. If you are one of those individuals, you may want to think about furthering
researching warts and issues that surround them. After this research and examination has
been completed, there is a good chance that you will walk away with a better understanding
of warts, regardless of whether or not you personally have them.

When researching and examining warts, you will find that you literally have an unlimited
number of different options. In fact, there are so many options that you may have a difficult
time choosing one. That is why it is advised that you review each of your research methods.
Doing so will allow you find the search method that would likely produce the best results.
However, it is important to remember that you do not necessarily have to choose one research
method. If you wish, you could research warts using all of your search options, which are
outlined below.

Perhaps, the best way to learn more about warts is by visiting a dermatologist. A
dermatologist is a doctor who tends to specializes in skin or skin conditions. Since
dermatologists" specialty is skin conditions, including warts, they may be able to provide you
with the best information. For that information, you may want to think about scheduling a
consultation appointment with a local dermatologist. The only downside with scheduling a
consultation appoint is that you may need to pay for it. If you cannot afford an appointment,
you are still advised to contact a local dermatologist. Many times, you can request or pick up
free informational brochures; brochures that may contain information on warts.

In addition to visiting a local dermatologist, you may also want to think about visiting your
primary care physician. Your primary care physician, also commonly referred to as a family
doctor, can also provide you with information on warts, as well as your removal options.
Although they may not be as specialized as most dermatologists, all doctors have, at least,
some experience with warts. As with a dermatologist, you may be required to pay for a
consultation appointment, but you should also be able to request brochures from your doctor's

As nice as it is to seek professional advice, there are many individuals who are uncomfortable
with approaching a doctor for additional information. If this is the case, you are advised to
use the internet to your advantage. Although there is nothing better than information obtained
directly from a healthcare professional, you should be able to find relevant information
