Our Warts Treatment
What are Warts?
Warts are a type of skin infection and skin overgrowth caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The infection causes rough, skin-colored bumps to form on the skin. This virus and warts themselves are contagious. You can get warts from touching someone who has the disease. Warts most commonly appear on the hands, feet, face, and genitals.
What Causes Warts?
Warts are caused when the human papillomavirus, or HPV, enters the skin through a cut or break in the skin and causes an infection. Anyone can get warts, with the elderly especially susceptible for the virus due to more fragile, tear-prone skin. Warts can spread from direct contact with a wart, or indirect contact like touching a doorknob or floor contaminated with the virus.
