Warts – What is it?

What Are Warts?

Warts are harmless growths that appear on the surface of the skin. They can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some may be flats and smooth. Others may be round with a rough texture. Flat warts often appear on the face, arms and legs and are common among children and adults.

Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus or HPV and can be easily spread by simply touching it and then touching other areas of the skin. In most cases,  can be treated with topical medications or surgical procedure. See our treatment video for more information.
