Take Charge and Win the Battle
Warts are skin growths caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV). This virus causes a rapid growth on the outer layer of your skin. There are several types of warts including common warts, periungual warts, flat warts, plantar warts, and genital warts. Warts are seen on people of all ages, but most commonly appear in children and teenagers because their still-developing immune system does not recognize or fight the wart virus.
