The human papillomavirus causes warts, which are raised lumps on the skin (HPV). Warts have afflicted people for thousands of years; they were discovered on a 3,000-year-old mummy and Shakespeare mentions them.
Although warts are seldom hazardous, they are unpleasant, potentially unsightly, and infectious. They can also be excruciatingly uncomfortable. Warts, on the other hand, can be treated at home or by a medical expert.
Types of Warts
Warts are divided into five categories. Each variety has a distinct look and occurs on a different place of the body.
- Common warts

Electrosurgery is a treatment that includes burning a wart on the skin. This is accomplished by passing an electrical charge via the tip of a needle, which causes the wart tissue to dry and burn away. A painful local anesthetic injection must first numb the skin around the wart.
