In fact, as much as 15% of children get warts, so it is by no means an uncommon problem. Many children that suffer with warts may be embarrassed of their condition or be the subject of playground bullying, while others may be very uncomfortable particularly if the warts are on the soles of their feet.
What causes Warts?
Warts are noncancerous skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Warts appear when this virus invades the skin, usually when the skin is broken or cut, which then causes a rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin, also known as Warts!
The HPV can be passed on by close skin-to-skin contact with other Wart sufferers, as well as through contact with towels or shoes.
This virus can be spread to other parts of body by scratching a wart, sucking fingers, biting fingernails or shaving.
Warts come in a multitude of shapes, sizes and colours. They are usually quite small and skin-coloured but can be large and dark, rough or smooth. They are quite easy to detect but it may be worth taking your child on a trip to your local GP if you are unsure.
Are they dangerous?
While Warts are contagious, they will generally be no danger to your child’s health.
Warts are not cancerous and generally not harmful because they are small benign growths. There are, however, some types of warts that can become painful in nature and are certainly not the most comfortable condition for your child to contend with.
Chances are your child’s Warts will disappear by themselves thanks to their strong immune system. However, there are treatments you can try in the meantime…
How can I treat Warts?
The Syrinx ZA Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar is able to effectively treat warts and reduce both their appearance and the pain they may be bringing your child.
It’s a cold processed, all natural soap that cleans the skin by drawing out heavy metals and impurities, freeing the immune system to use its natural defences against warts and other infections.
Due to its natural properties, the bar is very safe to use on children and is unlikely to provoke adverse reactions in sensitive skin as normal soap might.
