Why do I have Warts?

Warts (Verruca) are viral infections of the skin. These viruses like to live in the upper layers of the skin, which reacts by thickening the layers of the cells around the area. It is very important to get warts treated as they can spread to other parts of the body and can also be transmitted to others.

Other reasons that contribute to having Warts are:

Genital warts Genital warts in particular must be treated early as they are associated with cervical cancer.

Warts in children Warts in children are often acquired from their parents or caregivers, so care must be taken to examine the whole family. Warts can mimic other skin conditions like skin tags and corns, so it’s important to get it diagnosed
