Papilloma on the Palms Pictures - 7 Photos & Images

Warts are caused by the virus known as human papilloma. The human papillomavirus causes a rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of your skin. Common warts usually grow on hands, palms and fingers. They are usually harmless and usually disappear on their own. Even though they are relatively harmless, warts are still an annoyance that can cause embarrassment and most people do not want to wait the many months or even years that it could take for the wart to disappear on its own.

Consult your doctor. There are a few methods that your doctor could use to remove the wart. The most common is cryotherapy. With cryotherapy, your doctor freezes the warts using liquid nitrogen. Cryotherapy is not known to be painful and is extremely effective. However, it may take several sessions for the wart to be removed completely.

Use duct tape. In 2002, a study published in the “Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine” showed that using duct tape was more effective then cryotherapy at removing warts. Cover the wart with duct tape for six days. After six days soak the wart in warm water and rub it with a nail file. You may have to repeat the duct tape and warm water method for as long as two months before the wart is removed.
