Warts are bumps on the skin usually found at the hands and feet of affected individuals, though these could also affect other parts of the body as well. These warts often resemble either a solid blister or a cauliflower.
Warts are caused by any of 10 varieties of human papilloma virus. These could be contagious especially when a broken part of the skin comes in contact with the warts.
Some types of warts are preventable, especially those that cause serious medical consequences such as genital warts and cervical cancer. These are prevented through vaccinations as long as the patient has not contracted the virus strain already.
Most often, warts may be gone after six months of onset without any treatment or special diet at all. There are cases where it would take two to three years before the warts finally disappear. Some would choose to leave the warts alone but when warts are painful, then finding treatment is a good idea.
There are some who are uncomfortable with the ugly looking warts and causes some embarrassments since it can be unsightly after all. They would go to doctors to have the warts surgically removed, but if the virus is not completely taken away the warts are going to reappear.
- Observing proper hygiene is the most important tool for everyone.
- No amount of prescribed diet can help avoid the human papilloma virus or any virus for that matter. The right practice must start with the basic hand and body cleansing as often as the need arises.
- By working on the body’s immune system to fight off the virus, any treatment is possible. A balanced diet makes the body healthy and improves its ability to fight off most types of illnesses caused by viruses and bacteria. A balanced choice from all the food groups helps the body become immune even to the wart-causing virus, the human papilloma virus.
