In our last post we talked about corns and calluses. Now, let us go on to warts.
Warts are common skin diseases. Researchers worldwide found out that At least 20% of children has contracted warts at one point in their life. The word – ‘wart’, is a general name for over 150 different kind of human papilloma viruses (HPVs). Warts can appear in different parts of the body. They are most commonly to be found on the face, hands, feet and genitals.
Warts in different areas can feel differently. Genital warts are fleshy bumps. Those warts that grow on the heels of the feet can be quite irritating when walking and often are mistaken for calluses.
Viral warts are contagious. They are small bumps with tiny blood clogs that look like black seats. They can grow in clusters. Active treatments are required since they are infectious and can spread on to other people. Amongst the over 150 strains of HPVs, certain viruses attack specific human body areas. Take HPV1 as an example, they often infect the heels. Warts that found on the feet are called plantar warts; those on hands are called Palmer warts.
The common ways of treating warts include: freezing (cryotherapy), laser, medication and minor surgery treatments . The doctor will analyze according to the location, the sizes, numbers and depth, as well as the patient’s budget and expectation to make the decision. Since freezing treatment do not leave scars, it becomes the most popular choice. You may ask the doctor to see what is best for you.
Sometimes there are patches of hard, thickened skin appear on the feet or the hands. How can you tell whether they are corns, warts or calluses?
Corns are thickening of irritated cuticles which are caused by the result of pressure and repeated friction. They are often found on the soles of the feet, Between the fingers, and outside of the thumbs and pinkies. Corns hav a translucent, cone shape center surrounded by thick skin with smooth surfaces, unlike warts, They are generally not contagious. However, if they are infected or becoming strange in appearance, you need to see a doctor.
The forming of calluses is similar to that of corns but the locations are different . Calluses are usually found on the hands and the feet where pressure affects the most. They are also not contagious. Calluses usually cover bigger areas than corns. Their shapes depend on the stressed area. They do not have clear Centerpoints. Medical attention is usually not required.
According to the picture above, there are many different kinds of callus removal methods available. The most popular way is by using a callous file. You need to go lightly when filing away the hard skin though. Make sure you take off the thickened part layer by layer. Ambitious filing may draw blood and cause infection.
In Rainbow Nails, we use a electric peeler to shave away the calluses. It may take a longtime. But the result is good. Soft and fresh skin will reveal when it is done.
