Hello Tamara ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Warts are an infection of the skin surface caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), this virus causes abnormalities in the skin layer, which is the buildup of more keratin that causes the formation of new skin textures. This virus can be transmitted easily, can be in direct contact with the skin of the patient's warts or contaminated with the HPV virus but it is also influenced by the immune immunity of each person. This virus can attack people with a low immune system or people with immune system disorders such as people with HIV / AIDS. This virus can survive on media that has warm and damp temperatures such as: clothes, towels, razors, nail clippers, sandals and socks.
Normally some warts can go away on their own without being treated even with a long to monthly process. The speed of healing took a long time to get back to each other's immune system. To speed up the healing process, can also be given with drugs and forms of ointments or plasters that contain salicylic acid this substance is able to destroy the top layer of skin where the warts grow. If the treatment does not disappear then the next steps are actions such as: curette, cryotherapy, laser light.
Some things you can do to prevent warts from spreading to other areas:
- Wash hands when accidentally touching the wart
- Keep your hands and feet moist
- Don't forcibly remove warts like picking, this will only cause spread to other bodies
- Don't share personal items with others such as clothes, razors, towels, socks and slippers
- Keep the wart area moist
When using the wart remover you mentioned above, one of the side effects of the drug is irritation, which is redness on the skin after contact with certain items or substances. Some things you can do to deal with irritations are: avoid products that cause irritation, avoid scratching the area of irritation, use a moisturizer to prevent it from drying out and compress the area of irritation with cold compresses to relieve pain and itching. If the warts are felt the size is getting bigger and spread to other members, it is felt pain in the wart area should check with your doctor to get further examination and therapy.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
