What Is A Wart?

Some people mistake pimples for warts or vice versa.  What is a wart?

Wart is a growth on the skin caused by viral infection.  Warts usually appear on hands and feet but can also be seen in other parts of the body.  Common warts generally make the person uncomfortable either due to their presence or their location (especially when they are visible).  Since warts are contagious, personal hygiene is important in preventing the spread.
