Almost everyone has had a problem in their lifetime with the prevention and treatment of common warts, which is actually a viral infection.

Dr. Ildikó Vincze, az Oxygen Medical according to your dermatologist, it is worth entrusting the treatment to a specialist, as it is not always easy to choose the right solution.

Viral infection with unpredictable course

Warts are caused by a virus, so they are transmitted to the skin through infection. They are often confused with moles and other protruding soft peduncles, which is why you should seek the help of a dermatologist for removal. In contrast to other infections, warts can persist for a few weeks or even years.

The appearance of warts depends on the condition of the skin, the type of virus and the location of the infection. Their appearance is quite certainly associated with a weakened immune system, so they develop more often after illness. However, the reverse is not true: the appearance of a wart does not indicate an immune disorder.

Some other factors can also contribute to the development, such as skin injuries, skin wetting, increased sweating, and foot deformities.
