Warts are skin growths that are non-cancerous and are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). If you’re thinking about seeing a dermatologist because you suffer from this skin condition, then watch this video to learn a bit more about warts.
Warts are the second most common skin condition and, although they can develop anywhere on the skin, they are found most frequently on the hands, feet, and face. There are six types of warts, each caused by HPV as it tries to spread. There is no cure for warts, but you can have them removed by your dermatologist.
