Wortie is fast, safe and effective

Key characteristics

- Warts are benign skin growths caused by the HPV virus that cause a dome-shaped keratin growth often with a mosaic pattern.
- It may be hard to get rid of warts after they develop. But they generally disappear spontaneously within months or years.
-Warts can grow anywhere on the body, though they most often appear on hands and feet. They are most common among school aged children and young adults.
- Plantar warts (verrucas) can be pushed beneath the skin’s surface by pressure from standing and walking. A thickening of the skin slowly forms over most of the wart and looks and feels like callus.

How many people suffer from warts?

Per year at least one in every fourteen people in the UK will develop a wart (4.4 Million people per year). One out of five children from the age of 12 – 16 suffers from warts. According to the National Health Service (NHS) UK, a survey of 1,000 children with warts found that:
- 74 per cent of them had common warts
- 24 per cent of them had verrucas

About common warts

The causative agent of the common wart is human papilloma virus (HPV). There are more than 100 different types of HPV identified of which the most common viruses causing cutaneous warts are type 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10, and 27. The viruses are able to enter the skin through minor breaches in the epithelial surface. The infection results in the metaplasia of keratinocytes which gradually build upkerathoyalin granules and sloughed off. The virally infected keratinocytes are not destroyed and therefore protect the virus from the host immune system, allowing continual growth of the wart.

About plantar warts (verrucae)

Verrucae (or plantar warts) are caused by the human papillomavirus. They are extremely common, being experienced by most people at some time during their lives. Verrucae are infectious and can be painful, especially when affecting the soles of the feet. Verrucae are spread by direct skin-to-skin contact or indirectly via contact with contaminated surfaces (e.g. swimming pools or communal showers), although having a family member with a wart and having a high incidence of warts within a child’s class have been shown to be stronger risk factors than the use of swimming pools and shared bathing areas. If a verruca is scratched or knocked it can bleed, making it easier for the virus to infect another part of the body through a breach in the skin.

What are the symptoms of warts?

Warts come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. A wart may be a bump with a rough surface, or may be flat and smooth. Tiny blood vessels grow into the core of the wart to supply it with blood. In both common and plantar warts, these blood vessels may look like dark dots in the wart’s center. In most cases the skin lines and creases over the wart look distorted.

How are warts transmitted?

Warts are easily transmitted by direct contact with a human papillomavirus. The viruses are able to enter the skin through minor breaches in the epithelial surface. Warts are less common in adults because most adults will have developed immunity to strains of the HPV virus while children are still susceptible. Infection can be passed to others by sharing towels, razors, or other personal items. After contact with HPV, it may take many months of slow growth beneath the skin before you notice a wart.
