Warts in children: why are formed and how to fight
The problem of warts is known to many parents since childhood, which, often leads to an unreasonably frivolous attitude to this skin disease in children.
Warts are dense elevations on a child’s skin, which can have a different shape. Warty growths are attributed to benign skin tumors (benign tumors) that arise from the infection of the skin with the human papillomavirus. The human papillomavirus can cause malignant lesions in the cervix of the uterus, penis, rectum at an older age. But such terrible manifestations are caused by other subtypes of the human papilloma virus that do not appear on the skin. Most often, the warts have a semicircular shape that results from excessive overgrowth of the superficial and underlying papillary layers of the skin. Warts can have both very small, hardly noticeable sizes about 1-2 mm, and very significant up to 1.5-2 cm, which depends on the place of their formation and the type of virus that caused the sprouting. Separate warty growths can merge with each other, turning into large noticeable formations of various shapes. Originally, warts have the same color as the skin, differing only in thickness from it. But over time they darken, which is due to the constant adhesion of dirt to the rough surface of the wart, which is washed with great difficulty.
