Caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) warts can appear anywhere on the body and can be a cause of embarrassment for some. There are many types of warts, and most are commonly found on the soles of the feet (Plantar Wart) or on the hands. Warts are contagious and can be spread by skin to skin contact. There are a few types of modalities to remove warts. Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to `freeze`off the wart. Topical medication can also be used to help diminish the wart. An option of surgically removing the wart can be done if the wart does not respond to medication or cryotherapy. An incision is made to cut out the wart, and a tiny scar will remain. There is still a chance that the wart can come back as removing the wart does not kill the virus that resides in your body.
