Wart Prevention

Warts present themselves after a person is infected with the human papillomavirus. Approximately 20 million people in the United States are currently infected with the human papillomavirus. Once HPV is contracted it’s variable whether or not one wart or a series of warts will start to grow on the skin’s surface. The best way to avoid getting warts is by protecting yourself against human papillomavirus.

  • Minimize your exposure to situations that may cut or break the skin. If there is an opening on the skin, keep it covered with a breathable bandage and free from germs with antifungal cream.
  • Avoid biting nail and cuticles, as this may cause small cuts, which can become entryways for the the virus to enter your body.
  • Don’t share razors, towels, sock, shoes, or clothing with another person. Even if warts are not visible, the other person may still be carrying HPV.
  • In public areas, where moisture is present, like that of public pool, locker room, or public shower, wear shower shoes.
  • Keep your feet dry by wearing breathable, cotton, socks.
  • Avoid touching any warts on your own body or other people’s bodies. Warts can spread easily through touch.
  • Condoms do not fully protect against the spread of genital warts. Abstain from sex completely or engage only in sex with those who do not present any symptoms of genital warts. People with many sexual partners are at higher risk for carrying HPV, even if warts are not present.
