Warts are an unsightly skin condition. It manifests as external noncancerous tumors that occur mainly on the hands and feet, often causing itchiness. They are not painful or dangerous.
Warts occur because of a virus called papillomavirus. This virus affects the outer layer of skin and enters the body through skin lesions, however superficial they may be. Therefore, the warts can be passed to others and can also be transmitted by sharing various hygiene products such as towels, toothbrushes or razors.
Warts can be treated using either herbal methods or medical methods. The herbal treatments don’t eliminate the virus from the body, while the medical ones are designed to combat also the virus not only the warts.
