What are warts and what causes them?
Warts are benign lumps or flat red rashes on the skin. These are the most “innocent” clinical manifestations of the known human papillomavirus (HPV) virus, which is believed to cause cervical and other cancers of the genital area and genital warts. It should be noted, however, that the strains that cause the warts are different and the carcinogenic strains or those that cause genital warts are different. Indeed, certain strains of the virus most commonly cause warts in specific parts of the body and even morphologically different so that their clinical picture betrays the underlying virus that caused them!
In general and in accordance with the guidelines of the British Association of Dermatologists, the warts caused by HPV could be considered to be morphologically divided into 3 main categories: the common worm (Verruca vulgaris), (Verruca plantaris) and smooth ant (Verruca plana).
Common warts, small, skin-colored, rounded lumps (medically called trunks) with a tracheal hyperkeratotic surface, occur mainly in the area of the hands and especially their fingers but can also occur on the elbows, knees or face.
The plantar warts are located on the soles of the feet and are often intra-peritoneal, that is, they tend to grow inside the skin. Externally, they look like a horned cap on the skin with a slightly raised hyperkeratotic lip surrounding it and can be painful. Often, multiple black spots scattered in the area of the wart are also often due to thrombotic vessels and are a useful sign in clinical diagnosis.
Smooth ants are found on the face, legs and hands. They are flat lumps with a smooth surface, reddish or skin color.
In addition to these main categories, many classify the ants into several other categories depending on how they look, referring to filamentous or mosaic-shaped ants.
During the procedure the patient is protected by the laser beam with special protective glasses.
