Description of Warts

Warts are viral infections that will usually appear on the skin. Warts appear as rough, grayish growths the vary in different sizes. They can be found on the genitals, rectum, urethra, even in the mouth. When you see a wart start showing on your skin, the virus usually will enter through a cut, crack, or a scratch and incubates a few months before erupting into warts.

Most times warts go away on their own without any treatment. However, warts that appear on the genitals, fingernails, palms, and soles of your feet can be difficult to treat. In the case of children warts usually last a few months to a year, in adults, they commonly will last months to even years. You may never completely get rid of warts.The most common skin warts are the most prevalent type.

Identifying different types of warts

Warts may show up anywhere on your skin. Those that appear on the soles of your feet, that are called plantar warts. They grow inward rather than outward. Common warts are mildly contagious and often spread on your body by picking, scratching, shaving, or biting your own nails. They also can be passed on to others through direct contact. Genital warts are often passed between sexual partners.
