WHAT CAUSES WARTS?
Warts are contagious skin growths that are caused by a virus. Specifically the human papillomavirus, or HPV, is responsible for all kinds of warts. HPV usually enters the body in an area of broken skin and will infect the skin’s top layer. The virus causes the top layer of skin to rapidly grow and form a wart. Warts may go away on their own, but it is always a good idea to let a dermatologist examine your wart and provide the most effective treatment.
