A wart is a skin growth caused by a virus (HPV), and it can quickly spread to any part of the body. Doctors categorize warts into six common types:
Common warts usually grow on hands, fingers, and toes.
Plantar warts grow on the soles of feet.
Flat or plane warts appear in clusters on hands, face, or legs.
Filiform warts grow around the eyes, face, and neck.
Genital (venereal) warts grow on the genitalia.
Periungual warts grow underneath and around the fingernails.
Unfortunately, warts easily spread by direct contact. If you touch a wart, the contacted area can become infected, and the warts rapidly spread and grow. If you share a towel or razor that comes in contact with a wart, you are at risk of spreading or developing the virus.
If you come in contact with a wart and don’t notice any change in your skin, wait a bit longer. A wart can take up to six months to grow underneath the skin .
