Spring in Houston, Texas is full of fun-filled activities, many of which,
ironically enough, can be found near the town of Spring! If you head on
down to I-45 you’ll see signs for a water park, museum, and wildlife
adventures -- all signs that you know you’re in for some fun, unlike
spotting the signs of warts!
Let’s face it, warts are anything but fun, and can be incredibly
stubborn. However, knowing the symptoms of warts will help you get treatment
as early as possible, and that’s the key to getting rid of them
before they get worse or spread!
A wart forms after the human papillomavirus, or HPV, enters your body via
a scratch, cut, or other abrasion. This virus attacks the first layer
of skin and accelerates its growth. Layers of skin then build up and form
a flesh-colored bump – the first signs of trouble!
Now, this is when it gets tricky. There are different symptoms to watch
for, because there are different varieties of warts! For instance, the
bump can be rough, smooth, flat, and sometimes sport a black speck in
the middle. If a
wart is located on the bottom of the foot where pressure is placed upon it, the bump can even disguise itself by
growing inward instead of out. Warts also vary in size and shape and can
pop up by themselves or in a group. The moral of this story? As soon as
you see a tiny bump with any of the characteristics described above, make
an appointment with us right away! We will confirm whether the bump is
indeed a wart and get you started on a
treatment plan A.S.A.P.
