Papilloma is papillary growths of skin color on the skin and mucous membranes. The causative agent of the disease and thus the cause of the rash is human papillomavirus (HPV). Some types of virus cause affection of mucous urogenital tract, other affect the skin.
The source of papillomavirus is the sick person or a virus carrier. Various micro traumas of the skin, abrasions or cracks serve as “gateway” for the penetration of the virus into the human body.

In the presence of active HPV in saliva, its transfer can be carried through non-sexual contact (with a kiss). Infection can also occur in public places, such as swimming pools, saunas, gyms.
The period of incubation is long: from 15 days to several years. The human papillomaviruse is characterized by a hidden (latent) within. A person can be infected simultaneously with several types of papillomavirus. Under the influence of different factors (frequent stress, adverse environmental conditions, decreased immune system, concomitant diseases and so on.) virus activates as well as its reproduction and rashes appear.
