Wartner® for the removal of warts & verrucas
What are warts & verrucas?
A common skin infection
Warts & verrucas are the most common types of skin infections. They are a harmless growth in the top layer of the skin caused by the human papilloma-virus (HPV). The virus stimulates the skin cells to multiply rapidly. They are very contagious and to prevent them from spreading, treatment should be done immediately.
- About 1 out of 5 families was confronted with warts in the household in the past 2 years :
- Key factors driving infection are damaged skin, personal predisposition and a weakened immune system .
- About 10% of children (2-12years) have warts, rising to 15-20% at the age of 16-18 years .
Common warts & verrucas are the 2 most frequent types:
|Common warts are usually found on the hands, knees and elbows and are recognised by the rough “cauliflower-like” appearance of the surface.|
|Verrucas are very similar but mainly appear on the sole of the foot, heels or toes and tend to be much flatter in appearance, sometimes covered by callous skin.|
