Yes, all warts are caused by the HPV virus, but it is a milder strain of the virus than what causes herpes, so don’t get too worked up about this fact. The body’s immune system is more easily able to fight the HPV that causes warts and develop immunity to it over time. There are over 100 different strains of HPV that cause various types of warts which are more prevalent to develop in different areas of the body.
The human papilloma virus is highly contagious and spread through contact either with an infected individual or with a surface that has the virus on it. It thrives in wet, hot and humid environments and can only gain access to your body through a cut or scrape on your skin.
Younger people are more susceptible to getting warts because their immune system has not developed resistance to HPV virus like older people have. As the body is exposed to different strains, it naturally fights and develops immunity to some of them.
You can prevent warts by properly covering any cuts or scrapes that you have on your skin. Parts of the body that are regularly shaved, like men’s faces or women’s legs, are prone to getting infected with HPV through nicks made while shaving.
Try to treat the warts before they have a chance to deeply rooted in the skin, when they will become more difficult to get rid of. The best method of treatment to try first is to use a product with salicylic acid because it will kill the warts about three fourths of the time. If that doesn’t work, then see your doctor .
