Warts can occur anywhere on the body. They can crop up on the face, hands, feet, and genetials. Basically, anywhere there is skin- a wart can potentially form. Warts appear on the top layer of the skin as a raised growth. They are triggered by a virus which can lay dormant on the skin’s surface for an extended period time. When the virus decides to enter the body through an area of broken skin, that is when a wart tends to develop.
You may question how the virus ends up on the skin’s surface in the first place. Well, the virus, called human papillomavirus is contagious and spreads easily from person to person through skin contact.
Depending on where warts form on the body, they go by different names. The most basic warts that from on the hands or elsewhere on the body are called common warts. Warts on the feet are referred to as plantar warts. And other types of warts are: genital warts, flat warts, filiform warts, and periungual warts.
The appearance of a wart will differ depending on the strain of human papillomavirus contracted and the location of where the wart forms on the body. Warts can be smooth or rough to the touch. They may be light or dark in color. In most cases warts are painless, but if they are in a location where pressure is applied, like on the heel of the foot, or on an elbow, a wart may feel tenderness or pain.
A doctor can diagnose a wart just by looking at it. Sometimes a skin biopsy from the wart can be examined under a microscope for further details regarding the wart.
It may take several attempts before a wart goes away for good. As long as the human papillomavirus is present in the body, warts may continue to reappear over an extended period of time. With most healthy people, human papillomavirus will clear on its own, though reinfection is always possible.
