Warts are small rough domelike protrusions from the surface of the skin, and can occur anywhere on the body, but are found mostly on the hands and feet. They are benign growths but are very contagious, being caused by a virus known as HPV. There are several types of warts: the ones which grow on the nose, mouth and eyelids, look like tiny fingers. The ones growing on the hands and fingers are domeshaped. Those which grow on the soles of the feet are inflamed bumps which make it difficult for one to walk. Still others, which grow on the other parts of the body have a flat brown surface.
Warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. This virus tends to enter the skin through breaks such as tiny cuts and bruises, and then they seed under the skin forming keratin, a hard protein : when this is found in excess, the skin grows very fast, resulting in warts. Though they are contagious, they are by and large harmless – yet you would like to see them removed – they make your skin look ugly. They are more common among children whose immune system is less developed than an adult’s.
