"It is not true that if a person has warts on the neck it means that it is because of HPV, and that HPV causes genital warts and other areas of the body."

This is what Dr. Salomon Jakubowicz, author of Not one more diet, and collaborator in different scientific journals, such as Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism of the World Endocrinology Society.

"The warts on the neck and / or armpits are never for HPV, they are for the resistance to insulin. The dermis generates these verruguitas because the sugar that is ingested is not processed at all, "he says.

As he explains, insulin is a hormone that rises when we eat bread, rice and other foods, because its function is to metabolize sugar. But it is also linked to growth.

"When insulin increases, the growth of cells accelerates. Every decade, new signs of exaggerated growth due to insulin appear, "explains Jakubowicz.

To prevent the appearance of warts on the neck, the fundamental thing is to make changes in lifestyle and reduce the intake of simple sugars. Its excess, in addition to causing weight gain, can cause warts to appear on the neck.

Finally, Jakubowicz points out that, while we tend to generalize, not all warts are the same. There are some that are viral in nature, such as those that usually appear on the hands or genitals.

However, those that usually appear in the armpits or the neck are surplus skin, which could be caused by changes in body weight or as a history of metabolic disease, such as diabetes.
