What are Warts?Warts are skin growths caused by the human paillomavirus (HPV), which resides in the stratum basale, reproducing cells rapidly like a benign tumor. the disease can affect the epidermis through cracks or breaks in the skin. Warts are isolated only in the epidermis. Warts are hard to treat because the body has a difficult time telling the difference between the virus and the regular cells. The common wart types are flat, plantar, filiform, and periungal warts.
