Warts are a small, hard, benign growth on the skin, caused by a virus. These lumps or swellings are mainly caused by the human papilloma viruses – more than 100 varieties exist. These viruses mainly enter the skin through cuts in the skin – it can be even through a simple razor cut and start causing infections underneath which eventually leads to warts being formed over.
Warts can form anywhere in the skin and can expand pretty quickly. Warts are just like moles but are of the same colour as our skin.
