WHAT IS A
A wart is a growth on the skin caused by some types of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The virus however, is not a threat to the person’s health. Warts generally appear as small growths or “bumps” under the foot or on the toes and may or may not present symptoms. Keep in mind that warts which remain untreated can grow and multiply, as they are contagious. In many cases, they are barely even noticed by their carriers. Still, they can become painful and resistant to treatment, so it’s always a good idea to have a wart looked at by a podiatrist.
