Periungual warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), from specific strains.
The virus itself is dangerous, because it’s linked with cervical cancer and genital warts. Whilst it is easy to get HPV, from public showers, toys, towels you should take more attention to your hygiene.
A good personal hygiene will reduce chance of getting HPV. If you have scraped or cut finger, it’s advisable to avoid a direct contact with infected person, also other people towels, daily stuff (make up, shadows etc.).
- Bumps around toe and fingernails;
- Cracked nails;
- Deform cuticles;
