Warts are nasty. They appear on the skin without your consent and you have to be careful about them, especially when you’re going out in public.

There is a home remedy for warts that has been around for years and it works wonders on warts.
What is a wart ?
Warts are a type of skin growth. They can be small, flesh-colored bumps on the skin that can easily be mistaken for pimples or sebaceous glands (the oil-producing cells near the surface of your skin). Warts can occur on any part of the body, but are most common on the face and hands.
Warts are caused by a virus that usually lodges in the skin cells near wart lesions. When these infected cells reproduce, they produce a milky white or yellow secretion which encases and grows the wart. Warts may also be accompanied by itching, redness, and pain. Warts can usually be removed by a doctor with a simple cold cream or ointment treatment. However, if the wart is large or deeply located, it may require surgery.
Types of Wart
There are two types of Warts: common warts and plantar warts. Commonwarts grow on the face, neck, arms, and legs. Plantarwarts are found on the bottom of feet or hands.
Cause for Warts
Common warts can be caused by many different viruses including human papillomavirus (HPV), which is most commonly responsible for skin cancer; herpes simplex virus-2 ( HSV-2), which is the cause of cold sores; and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which can cause glandular tumors. Plantarwarts are most commonly caused by HPV, but may also be caused by HSV-1 or -3.
