How to treats Warts!
What causes warts? Unlike what you may have heard as a child, warts are not caused by toads!
Warts are caused by a virus (called the human papillomavirus) which affects the cells in your epidermis. The virus causes your cells to reproduce faster than they should, resulting in a wart. This rapid growth causes the skin to bump up in the mosaic, warts like appearance. Sometimes you may notice dark spots inside the wart and these are actually blood vessels.
There different types of warts, all caused by the same virus. The common wart is what is usually seen on hands, elbows and knees. Plantar warts are the ones you get on the bottom of your feet.,often grow on the balls in heels where the most pressure is put. Because the skin in your face is thinner, warts that grow there are usually flatter and, thus, called flat warts.
