A wart is a rough, scaly bump that can appear anywhere on the body. They are very common on hands and soles of the feet (plantar warts).

Causes of Warts

A virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV) causes warts. Warts can spread from person to person or some people get a wart after touching something that another person’s wart touched.

Anyone can get warts. Some people are more prone to getting a wart virus (HPV) than others. These people include children and teens as well as people with weakened immune systems.

Treatment of Warts

Various treatments are available to treat warts:

  • Cryotherapy: The wart is treated by “freezing” it with liquid nitrogen.
  • Vascular Laser treatment: Excel V™ laser is used to disrupt the blood supply to the wart
