While many people are out to look for the cure for warts, the wisdom of old lends us an infallible truth in the saying which goes thus; “prevention is better than cure.” Many of the cases of warts infection can be prevented, thereby eliminating the pain, discomfort and embarrassment that accompany the infection. In this article, I will attempt to show you a few ways in which you can prevent yourself or your loved ones from having an infection.
Well, before I go ahead to show a few simple ways in which you can prevent you or your loved ones from contacting a wart infection, I will like to state the cause of warts and a few types of wart infection as not many people are aware of this. Warts is caused by a virus known as the Human Papilloma Virus (or simply HPV ) which is a group of virus identified as the cause of the deadly disease known as cancer. The Human Papilloma Virus currently has no cure but there are several ways of dealing with its resulting infections such as warts and they include surgery, exposure to some form of radiation and use of over the counter medication (OTC) especially in the case of warts.
There are different types of warts which include Planter wart which affects the sole of the feet, Genital warts which affects the genitals, Common warts which affects the face and various parts of the body among others. However, regardless of the kind of wart infection you have, a useful tip to control the infection is this; do not scratch the affected area! Yes, warts have the ability to spread rapidly when scratched so avoid scratching at all costs.
So here are three tips to help you or your loved ones prevent warts;
1. Inform your spouse of your condition and always adhere to safe sex. This is especially very important in the event of a genital wart infection.
2. Try to wash your hands often and with water and soap – This simple hygiene practice can help reduce your chances of contacting a wart infection.
3. Do not touch any warts infection – Whether it is on your spouse or friend, avoid contact with a wart infection as warts can spread quickly by contact.
As simple as these tips may seem, they could help you completely prevent ever bothering about having warts at any point in time since your risk is greatly reduced by religiously following them.
However, if you already have a wart infection and want to get rid of it as soon as you can, you should try using an over the counter medication like Wartrol. It has proved to be very effective over the years. Unfortunately, this is not sold in stores but can be purchased from the manufacturers site at a very affordable price.
