All About Warts

Warts are skin growths that appear on any part of the body. This growth is non-cancerous and caused by a family of virus known as human papilloma virus (HPV). Despite common belief, warts do not have a root. They grow on the epidermis. Warts are skin-colored most of the times and rough in feel. Some warts may be dark in color and smooth to touch. Warts may grow individually or in a bunch. The virus spreads from one area of the skin to another and also from one person to another. Although warts may be left alone and may disappear after some months or years, most of the people get them treated because they affect the appearance. Also if they are not treated, instead of disappearing, sometimes they may grow in number. Let us discuss about the types of warts and their treatments.
