Warts have been terrorizing humanity for as long as we've been on Earth. Most of us have been introduced to the creature that calls itself wart. They are a nuisance, but most of the times pretty harmless! Some take months to disappear, others years, and the more aggressive ones require a doctor visit. Warts are mostly found on hands and feet, and can cause pain when touched. This is one reason for many people to have the wart removed. Warts located under one of your feet take too long to heal due to the constant friction while walking.

Doctors usually freeze the wart and it will fall of soon after. Warts ARE contagious. By touching infected skin of another person you have a chance of developing warts yourself. Do not touch, scratch or in any way try to remove them by force.This will spread the infection and only makes things worse! There is also a slight chance of infection if you use the same towels, or other objects as the person who has warts. There are several ways to treat wart infections:Salicylic acid is known to have an effect on warts and other skin infections.

It disinfects the area and causes the skin area on which it is applied to become softer, allowing for easier removal of the wart.Liquid nitrogen is one of the most common ways to remove warts. This method creates a blister between your skin and the ward, and will cause the wart to fall off as the blister's layers loosen themselves from your skin.
