What are warts?Millions of people each year suffer from Warts (Verruca Vulgaris), a skin growth that is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV causes quick growth of cells on your Skin’s outer layer. This results in Skin growths that can be rough, flat, or smooth in texture. Warts can also appear as skin-colored, dark brown or gray-black in color. The most common type of Warts are those found on the fingers, around the fingernails, and on the back of the hands. These types of Warts are characterized by little black dots that look like seeds inside the Wart and a rough surface. Another common type of Wart is the Plantar Wart. These types of Warts are most often found on the bottom of the feet, growing inward, and can have black dots in them. Plantar Warts feel as if there are tiny rocks inside your shoe. Flat Warts are another type of Wart that can occur anywhere. They are smaller and smoother than other types of Warts and tend to develop in large numbers.
