Thread: What are warts?

    Default What are warts?

    Hey guys. This doesn't have to do with anything really important about warts. I was just wondering if anyone knew what exactly are they? Are they just skin like a callus? I'm just curious! Thanks.

    if you really want to know all warts are caused by the humin papiloma virus. even the ones you get on your hands and feet. the typical treatment is the use of salacylic acid in gels, patches, ointments or liquids. there is a method for using duct tape but usually the duct tape falls off before it has had time to smother the wart.

    Wart looks like somewhat cauliflower, and it is a small growth a hand , feet and other part of the body. While wart and callus sometimes be similar in appearance,but these two have different causes and respond to different treatments.
