What Are Warts?

Posted at 1:05 pm under General Info

Warts are tumors or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV). More than 70 HPV subtypes are known.

Warts are particularly common in childhood and are spread by direct contact or autoinocculation. This means if a wart is scratched, the viral particles may be spread to another area of skin. It may take as long as twelve months for the wart to first appear.
