Warts are benign skin growths that appear when a virus infects the skin. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the virus that causes warts. They are highly contagious and can be spread person to person.
Warts are often skin-colored and can feel rough, but can also be smooth and dark in color. Sometimes, warts can resolve spontaneously, but our providers can treat and remove warts with a variety of in-office procedures.
