What are warts?
Warts is a small, hard, benign growth on the skin, caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV). Your body produces excess keratin, resulting in a rough textured bump. They are commonly found on the hands and feet, but can appear anywhere.Warts are highly contagious and can be easily spread through contact of infected skin to non-infected skin. HPV can stay dormant for weeks and it may take weeks or months for a verruca to appear on your skin.
Warts are easily contracted through direct contact from a wart to healthy skin, whether that be to another person or another area of your face or body. It is also possible to develop a wart through indirect contact of objects that have been in contact with a wart, for example towels or swimming pool floors.
