They can occur at any area of the body more often being seen on hands, feet, and face. There are warts affecting the private areas which are transmitted sexually, caused by other varieties of HPV. Though the warts tend to disappear on their own, they may take a lot of time which may vary from one person to another. Sometimes, they may recur following certain modes of treatment. They are brown to black in color and may vary in size from 2-4 mm. Warts are considered to be contagious, but it is possible that only a single member of the family can have them without other members getting affected.
The most effective way to treat warts is by radiofrequency. It is a simple procedure .To ensure that the individual doesn’t experience discomfort, an anaesthetic cream is applied to the target area for certain time. Sometimes, tiny injections of local anaesthetic may be needed to make the process more comfortable. As part of the process, an electric probe is applied on the surface of the wart thus gradually burning it. It would then eventually shed off with natural healing within a weeks time. Topical antibiotics are prescribed for better and quick skin recovery, and also to avoid secondary infections. Sometimes, a touch up session may be needed to avoid any kind of recurrence.
