What can cause the appearance of the hanging wart on the body?
All patients want to know why there are these small growths on the body. Small growths on the leg can be localized on the neck, in the groin, in the armpit, under the breast.
Hanging warts is very like places on the human body where it is warm and humid. On the face they can also appear most often wrinkles around the eyes.
From the point of view of dermatology, hanging warts are benign growths that occur on the background of low immunity.
The main reason for such growths on the skin is the human papilloma virus (HPV), most frequently enters the body of the patient by contact-household (with handshakes, hugs and kisses).
According to dermatologists, the infection occurs in:

- the micro-cracks and small abrasions;

Also, there is still such a thing as samsarajade HPV. Both women and men happen mikrotemperaturnye the skin during epilation under the armpits or shaving.
As a result, the wound re-enters the human papilloma virus. This process is called autoinoculation.
Once in the body of the patient, the virus can a long time to remain inside, not manifesting itself clinically, and only with a sharp decrease of the immune defense reminds himself pronounced clinical symptoms.
In most cases, statistics show that this disease affects adults who, for whatever reason, a failure occurs in the immune system. Contributes to the development of HPV in the patient’s body:
