Filiform warts (filamentous) are long, narrow, small growths on skin that usually appears on the eyelids, face, neck or lips. They appear as a result of papillomavirus infection. Warts have become a universal problem, they are ugly, and sometimes painful growths that can occur in many parts of the body. Each type of wart is named after its clinical appearance and location. Hanging or filamentous warts are long, narrow, flesh-colored growths or dark brown.
Hanging or filiform viral warts may appear individually or as clusters around the eyelids, eyes, face, neck, face, lips, rarely on the knee or body. Filiform, hanging warts is a variation of common warts and caused by human papillomavirus HPV types 1, 2, 4, 27, and the 29.
Hanging warts, also known as warts on the face are benign, oblong, conical or mushroom growths that usually appear on the eyelids and surrounding areas on the face and on the neck and lips. The most common symptoms are itching or bleeding. These types of warts are usually painless, although in rare cases they can become painful and irritable, usually if they are located in places where people rub the skin.
Viruses are multiplied in warm and moist skin epidermis causing the top layer of skin growing rapidly, and forming warts. Hanging warts are contagious and can be transmitted by sharing towels or touching the face of an infected person. Touching the warts on his face puts the infected man in danger of spread the infection to other parts of the body. Warts will increase in size and number if not removed. You will not get warts on your face every time you come in contact with HPV, and some people will never be infected.
Filamentous warts are usually benign and easy to treat. In order to remove filiform warts, you need to visit a doctor. Never use any home and any other alternative treatments for warts that are on your face or neck!
