What Causes Warts?

Warts or in medical terms – verruca, are caused by a virus in the human papilloma family (HPV) of which there are about 150 subtypes. Nearly everyone has at least one wart throughout their lives, and they are more common in children and adolescents.

The virus is able to enter damaged skin where it can quickly invade the skin cells and replicate to cause the fleshy growth. In most cases, warts are harmless – although they are contagious so can easily spread to other parts of the body or to other people.

When warts develop in areas like the face and hands, it can be unsightly and embarrassing – leading people to seek out wart removal treatments.
