Desc-Warts by DTownTony | May 14, 2023 × Warts are small, non-cancerous growths on the skin caused by a viral infection. They are usually painless but can be bothersome due to their appearance or location. Warts are commonly found on the hands and feet but can appear anywhere on the body. They are highly contagious and can spread from person to person or from one area of the body to another. Warts can often be treated with over-the-counter medications, but some may require medical intervention, such as freezing or laser therapy, to remove them.
