A wart (also referred to as verruca) is generally a small, rough tumor, that appears typically on hands and feet but also often on other locations of one’s body, that can indeed resemble a solid blister.
Warts happen to be sort of infection that is caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. There are more than 100 types of HPV viruses. Warts can also grow on all parts of the body. They can also grow on the skin, on the inside of the mouth, on genitals and on rectal area. Common types of HPV do tend to cause warts on the skin (such as the hands and fingers), while other HPV types tend to also cause warts on the genitals and rectal area. Some people are in fact more naturally resistant to the HPV viruses and do not seem to get warts as easily as other people.
Warts do come in all shapes and sizes. They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can also happen to any individual, irrespective of age or sex. They can also grow on external skin, genitalia and even in the rectal area. Viral warts are indeed contagious when one comes into contact with the skin of an infected person. Sometimes they do disappear on their own in a few months and at other times; they can also last for years. Usually harmless in nature, warts do become a cause of concern on account of their unsightly appearance.
