What causes warts?
Warts are a type of infection
caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family.
Warts can grow on all parts of your body.
Warts on the skin may
be passed to another person when that person touches the warts.
It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other
objects that were used by a person who has warts.
be contracted if there is a break in the skin, whether visible
or microscopic, which allows the virus to penetrate, said Dr.
Aldo Trovato, a Mobile dermatologist. That's why warts are
more common on hands and feet.
goes on to say they
appear to be more common in people whose hands are in a moist
environment - like dishwater - or whose hands or feet sweat
excessively. Susceptibility to warts differs from person to
person, just like any other virus. The Mayo clinic
person's immune system responds to warts differently, meaning
not everyone who comes in contact with HPV will develop warts. Generally, the incubation period - the time from when you're
initially infected until warts appear - is about three months. However, warts can lie dormant for years."
are a handful of wart varieties, though verruca vulgaris -
common warts - are the most prevalent, as their name implies. Common
warts usually are small flesh-colored bumps with a rough
surface, though they also can be white, brown or gray. They grow
to one-quarter or one-half inch wide.
These usually appear on the fingers around the nails and on the
back of the hand. They are often in groups, are hard, round or
oval, and have a rough surface. They are more common where your
skin has been broken, for example where fingernails are bitten
or picked at. They are usually painless. Children and young
adults are the most commonly affected.
warts also are prevalent and are found on the soles of feet.
from standing and walking often causes them to grow into deep
layers of the skin. Plantar warts occur, as with all
warts, when HPV invades the body through tiny cuts or breaks in
the skin, in this case on the bottom of the feet. The
virus often is encountered on contaminated surfaces, such as the
tile floors of public locker rooms, showers, and swimming pools.
Plantar warts usually are rough and spongy, and most are gray or
brown with dark pinpoints (tiny capillaries that supply blood to
the wart). Scraping a wart may cause it to bleed. A plantar wart
is similar in structure to an iceberg—the part on the surface of
the skin is a small part of the entire anomaly. Often, the
portion of the wart under the skin is at least twice as big as
the part you can see. Plantar warts may cause pain on the
bottom of the foot. Patients often feel a "lump" on the bottom
of the foot when standing, similar to having a stone in the
shoe. In many cases, pressure from standing and walking prevents
plantar warts from rising above the skin surface. If left
untreated, plantar warts can grow up to 1 inch in circumference
and may spread into clusters (called mosaic warts). In severe
cases, they cause a change in gait or posture that results in
leg or back pain.
warts, also called juvenile warts, are smaller and smoother
than other warts. According to the American Academy of
Dermatology, flat warts tend to grow in large numbers - clusters
of 20 to 100 at any one time. With children, they are
commonly found on the face; with men on the beard area; and with
women on the legs.
Irritation from shaving probably accounts for this. Flat
warts can be disfiguring and
embarrassing, and occasionally they itch or hurt.
ancient legend claims one must do the following to be rid of warts:
On meeting a funeral, take some of the clay from under the
feet of the men who bear the coffin and apply it to the wart,
wishing strongly at the same time that it may disappear; and
so it will be. While we certainly don't promote the idea
of scraping clay from beneath the feet of pallbearers, there is
much to be said for clay's ability to remove warts. But
not just any clay...
The best clay
for wart removal is a pure Calcium Bentonite Clay. Calcium Bentonite Clay
carries a strong, drawing negative charge. Because of
this, anything that has a positive charge - bacteria, toxins,
metals, viruses - will be drawn to the clay as if it were a
magnet. The clay both adsorbs and absorbs the positively
charged particles, causing them to stick to the clay's outer
surface, and to be drawn inside the clay particles as well.
And since the clay itself cannot be absorbed or digested, it carries
the positively charged particles with it when it is washed off
the skin, or passed through the body. No other clay can
match Calcium Bentonite's adsorption and absorption capacity.
It attracts and removes up to 32 times its molecular weight in
positively charged particles. Since warts are caused by a
virus, the clay has a tremendous effect upon them. With
topical applications of hydrated clay, the virus is pulled from
the skin and removed with the clay.
When dealing with an outbreak
of warts, apply a generous amount of Hydrated Bentonite Clay to the
affected area. Make certain the site is covered well.
Apply a bandage over the area so the clay is not wiped off.
It is important that the clay remain wet as long as possible.
If the area is too large to be covered by a bandaid, you can use
plastic wrap, wet cotton wool or wet bandages. Reapply the clay
twice a day until the warts are gone. We also
highly recommend taking the clay internally as well. This
will help boost your immune system, which in turn will speed
your body's ability to fight off the HPV virus.
We suggest drinking 1 to 2 ounces of
liquefied clay twice a day. Drink it in the morning and in
the evening or at bedtime.
