• Warts Symptoms


Symptoms of Warts depend on their various types:

Symptoms of Warts
Common warts:

They usually grow on the fingers, around nails and on the backs of hands. These are also called "seed" warts because the blood vessels within them produce black dots that look like seeds.

Symptoms of Warts
Foot / Plantar warts:

They are usually found on the soles (plantar area) of the feet. When they grow in clusters they are called as "mosaic warts". This is one of the chief features amongst symptoms of warts on feet. The pressure of walking flattens them and pushes them back into the skin.

Plantar warts can be painful, feeling like a stone in the shoe. One can catch the infection while walking barefoot on dirty infected surfaces.

Symptoms of Warts
Flat warts:

They are comparatively smaller and smoother than other warts. They can occur anywhere, but are most commonly found on the face in children. In adults they are more commonly found in the beard area in men and on the legs in women. Irritation from shaving may be one of the reasons for this. These are important symptoms of warts of this type.

Symptoms of Warts
Genital warts:

Genital warts or venereal warts are the most common signs of genital HPV infection.

In women, they occur on the outside and inside of the vagina, on the cervix of uterus, or around anus.

In men, they are less common and usually seen on the tip of the penis. They may also be found on the shaft of the penis, the scrotum, or the anus.

They are highly contagious and spread during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner. About two-thirds of people who have sexual contact with a partner with genital warts will themselves develop these warts within three months. These are chief symptoms of warts of genital type.
