Caused by the Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, Warts are skin growth. ?There are over 70 different types of identified warts. Warts are very common and can be anywhere on your body from your hands to your feet. ?Warts spread through direct contact through viral infection. Along with infecting others, you can potentially re-infect yourself by touching a wart and then touching another part of your body.

Warts can be easily treated. At home remedies include use of salicylic acid, commonly sold as ?Compound W?. Doctors may freeze the wart using cryotherapy methods by use of liquid nitrogen. This does not cause much scarring or infection.
