Warts are caused by a viral infection in the top layer of skin. They are non-cancerous, epidermal growths most often occurring on the hands and feet of an infected person.
While common warts appear on the hands and feet, there are many types of warts that can appear all over the human body. Warts that occur on the face are known as filiform warts. Genital warts are found on and around male and female genitals. Plantar warts are located on the bottom and sides of the feet. Warts that are found on areas commonly shaved, such as the face and legs, are known as flat warts. There are also warts that infect the skin under and around fingernails and toenails called periungal warts.
Warts can occur at any age but are most common in children, young adults and people with immune system deficiencies.Homeopathic medicines are very effective in the treatment of Warts.
