Warts are very common skin growths caused by a virus that occur in a variety of shapes and sizes on hands, feet and other parts of the body. A wart may appear as a bump with a rough surface, or it may be flat and smooth. Tiny blood vessels grow into the center of the wart to supply it with blood. These capillaries may appear as dark dots (seeds) in the wart's center. They are caused by a viral infection, specifically by human papillomavirus 2 and 7. There are as many as 10 varieties of warts, the most common considered to be mostly harmless. It is possible to get warts from others; they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin. They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur.
Common warts are small, usually painless growths. These warts are usually found on fingers, hands, knees, and elbows. These are dome‐shaped of grayish‐brown color and have a rough surface that may look like the head of a cauliflower, with black dots inside (seeds).
The treatment depends on the type of wart. The common treatments are abrasion, cautery with acids and cryo‐treatment.
