Warts: Everything You Need to Know

Warts are benign thickenings in the skin or mucous membranes often caused by the human papilloma virus. Warts are also known as verrucae or condylomata. Warts are very common; most warts on the hands, verruca vulgaris, plantar warts and plane warts resolve without treatment. Warts can be found in individuals of any age and in any location. They are particularly common in children and teenagers. There is a balance between the virus and the individual?s immune system. Situations that reduce immunity will make it easier for the warts to spread and allow the individual to become more susceptible.
