Warts are small blister like growths which occur on hands and feet of an individual. Viral infection is the common cause for the appearance of warts, but other causes are also associated with it. There are different types of warts depending on their shape and size. Mostly warts subside automatically but sometimes, medical advice is required. Wart itself is not infectious but it can get passed from one person to another by sharing the clothes, shoes and even towels of an infected person. Creams and gels are normally suggested as treatment procedure to get rid of the problem. In some cases, laser therapy, surgery and antigen shots are also suggested.
