What are Warts?

Have you ever experienced raised bumps on your hands, toes, feet, heels, or fingers? Those are warts.

Warts are small skin growths that have a rough texture. Warts are non-cancerous benign skin growths that occur when a virus invades the top layers of the skin.

Although warts on foot are quite common, they can occur anywhere on a body. You are more prone to get the virus if you have broken skin, cuts, or your skin is damaged in some way. They can vary in size from as small as the end of a needle to around the size of a garden pea.

Warts are usually painless, but they can be itchy and unattractive for most of the people. So it is advisable to see a dermatologist for wart removal in Lansing and Mount Pleasant.

Dermatologists classifies warts according to their occurrence on the body

Common warts
These warts can occur anywhere and have a surface that is firm, raised, and roughly textured. They are most commonly found on your fingers, knuckles, knees, elbows, and other places where broken skin is common.

Plantar warts
These warts are found on the soles of your feet, toes, or heels. They usually grow inward due to the pressure of your body weight. When a group of plantar warts develops in a cluster they’re called mosaic warts. Most warts are usually painless, although plantar warts can cause pain on the soles of your feet.

Plane warts
These warts lie flat against the skin and are smooth and round. They’re also called flat warts and tend to develop on areas of your skin that get the most sun exposure.

Genital Warts
Genital warts are a type of sexually transmitted disease caused by several strains of the HPV virus. They can develop in any genital area. You can catch or spread genital warts through any form of sexual contact, including oral sex or intimate touching. Unlike other types of warts, genital warts can be incredibly uncomfortable. They can cause burning or itching sensations and can lead to pain during sex.

Filiform warts
These warts have a longer, thin shape, and are often found on your armpits, neck, and eyelids.

Dr. Saif Fatteh, MD of Lansing Podiatry & Dermatology offers plantar wart treatment and for other kinds of warts.

What causes warts and how they can be treated?

According to Safe Health PC’s Dermatologist, they are caused by a group of viruses known collectively as Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Various strains of HPV cause different types of warts.

These viruses can easily spread from one person to the next through skin-to-skin contact or even by touching something an infected person has recently touched. You can also transfer the virus to different areas of your own body by shaving, scratching the affected skin, or biting your fingernails if warts are located on your hands.

Although, warts can self heal themselves over the period of a year or two and the fresh ones may develop in the vicinity. If your warts are getting troublesome, cosmetic concern, or spreading at a high pace, a dermatologist specialize in wart removal is highly recommended.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!
Martha
I would definitely recommend Dr. Fatteh. I got my Botox treatment done from him and it was perfect. He gave me all the information regarding the procedure. He himself did the procedure and was confident with it. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
