What is a wart?
Warts are a common skin condition that most people will experience at some point in their lives. They can appear anywhere on the body, but are more commonly found on the hands and feet.
A wart is a skin condition characterized by the presence of small, flesh-colored bumps. They are most often found on the face, neck, and hands, but can also occur on other parts of the body. Warts may be contagious and can grow quickly if not treated properly.
Warts are caused by certain types of HPV (human papillomavirus), which is a virus that affects the skin and reproductive organs.
How do we get warts?
There are a few ways to get warts, but the most common is picking them up from another person. You can also get them from contaminated surfaces, such as playground equipment.
