Warts (verrucas) are small, rough outgrowths that develop on the skin. They look like the bud of a cauliflower.

There are six major types of verrucas: verruca vulgaris, verruca plana, filiform verruca, verruca acuminata, periungual verruca and verruca plantaris.
Verrucas are pretty common. Most people think that, genital wart is the most widespread form of the skin disorder. In reality, verruca vulgaris is the most common form.
Genital wart is also called venereal verruca or condyloma acuminatum or verruca acuminata.
Do not be shocked, if you run across misspellings such as genetal wart or gential wart. You are merely having a glimpse at the deplorable state of our educational system.
Causes of Warts
Verrucas are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). About 110 different strains of this virus exist.
Condyloma acuminatum is caused by HPV types 6, 11, 42 and 44. These viruses are highly contagious.
You do not have to engage in sexual intercourse, in order to become infected. You can become infected during foreplay.
You may have noticed that oral verrucas have become extremely rampant these days. The rampancy is the direct result of the current debauchery in society.
The instances of oral sex are at an all-time high. Oral verrucas originate from contact with the genitalia.
Oral verrucas affect the mouth, tongue, lips, throat and gums. They can also be transmitted from one person to another through kissing.
In general, verrucas are transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. It can also be transmitted through other means. However, HPVs are neither air nor water borne.
You can get infected by sharing clothes, shoes or shocks with an infected person. Sharing towels is also a bad idea.
HPVs are not life-threatening. A genital verruca may itch or irritate, but that’s about it.
Even though, condyloma acuminatum is not life-threatening, it should be treated as soon as possible because condyloma acuminatum makes you more vulnerable to other viruses.
Condyloma acuminatum itches. Intense itching will probably lead you to scratch. Repeated scratching often leads to microscopic abrasions and tiny cuts.
These cuts leave the door wide open for potentially more deadly viruses such as HIV aids or HSV (herpes) to penetrate into the bloodstream.
A variety of techniques have proven effective in treating verrucas. These techniques could be classified into two groups: surgical techniques and topical ointment.
Among the most widely used surgical techniques are cryotherapy, laser surgery, electrodesiccation, surgical curettage, infrared coagulation and duct tape occlusion therapy.
Cryotherapy is a surgical procedure which involves the use of extremely low temperatures to destroy the infected tissue.
Cryotherapy is also called cryosurgery. It is often performed with the help of liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen has an extremely low freezing point.
Surgical curettage is an excision technique, which involves cutting off the lump with the help of a curette.
There are two forms of laser surgery: pulse dye laser and carbon dioxide laser. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.
Pulse dye lasers work by selectively absorbing haemoglobin from the infected tissues. Carbon dioxide lasers work by selectively absorbing water molecules from the infected tissues.
Pulse dye lasers are preferable to carbon dioxide lasers because pulse dye lasers are less painful and less likely to cause scarring.
Infrared coagulation consists of using a beam of infrared radiation to burn the infected tissue.
How to Remove Warts
Beams of infrared light are just like laser treatment; however, they are less expensive. Infrared coagulation is more likely to result in burns and scarring than pulse dye lasers.
Duct tape occlusion therapy consists of covering the infected area with duct tape. This method works best, when implemented in conjunction with fluorouracil.
