The warts that appear on the face are not among those severe skin conditions but they are very persistent and their treatment is usually very long and involves a lot of effort. They are more esthetical than a health problem, especially if they are located on the face. In fact this type of the warts that affects the face is those of the flat surface and of pink colour which are very difficult to be treated.
As every type of warts, this one too is of the viral origin, in fact, the reason of their appearance is the HPV virus, which is very contagious and can be transmitted by a simple touch. One could be infected especially if he or she has some open wound and that way the virus is transmitted more easily.
The problem with warts, besides their quality of being very persistent, is the one of the unexpected disappearance. Actually, it is not a problem, but it is a good reason for trying to ignore them. But, in the case of the warts on the face, which are impossible to be ignored and one should remove them. So, maybe the best advice is to prevent the creation of warts, because they are very difficult to deal with.
The prevention includes the activities such as cleaning and washing the face and hands more frequently, and of course, minimize the contact with the affected people. However, if they still appear, the best thing to do is try not to worsen the stage of them which can lead to their proliferation.
In that case, the complete elimination is even a better option. Besides the surgical procedures that involve incisions and, eventually, the scars, there are some less aggressive interventions that can be performed at home. One of them is the intervention called cryotherapy and it is done by freezing the wart with the nitrogen in the fluid form and that way killing it.
Even more popular treatment is the one with the use of salicylic acid, which can be bought in drugstores and pharmacies. This acid gradually removes the dead wart cells in order to speed-up its removal. Concerning either of these treatments the wart eventually falls off itself and it usually happens in a matter of weeks.
The least invasive is the treatment that includes the product called dermisil and it has shown great effectiveness. And, more importantly, it is the homeopathic remedy with no side-effects.
