HPV – treat it early!

Human papillomavirus — a virus which has numerous types and, therefore, has many different presentations. As in this case, verruca vulgaris or common warts are thick firm papules located on the fingers. This condition can be treated but it’s not easy. The location is delicate, fingers have lots of nerves, hence there are lots of pain receptors. Plus the depth of the papules is also a consideration. We don’t want to be too aggressive as this may affect the function and healing of the area. πŸ‘‰πŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌ Bottomline is visit your dermatologist at the first sign of wart infection so you can treat it early and avoid the spread of the virus. 😊
