Warts

Warts are small growths that can appear anywhere in the body, and usually look like a small blister with an uneven surface. They are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). In most people, a wart clears on its own in a few days, or it can take years. Other treatment options include cryotherapy, topical Salicyclic acid, and surgical removal.
