Treatment for Warts


What is Warts:

A wart is typically a small growth that appears on a person’s hands or feet and looks like a solid blister or a small cauliflower. They may also appear in other parts of the body.  Warts are usually painless, but can cause itching and burning if they are in high-friction areas.

There are many different kinds of warts, including common warts, flat warts, plantar warts, and genital warts. The common wart is generally raised and dome-shaped with a rough, grayish-brown surface.


Wart Symptoms:

Warts come in various shapes and sizes and usually appear as rough elevations on the skin. These elevations appear more frequently on the fingers, elbows, knees, face, and scalp. Those that appear on the soles of the feet are called plantar warts. They are very painful and the sufferer is not able to walk properly.

Causes of Warts:

All warts can spread from one part of your own body to another. They may spread from one person to another, but this is uncommon. Treatment is available if you do not like how the wart looks or if it is painful.
