Warts

Warts, or verruca, are a very common, harmless skin infection caused by a virus. For reasons that are not entirely clear, children seem to develop warts more often than adults. This is NOT a sign of a problem with the immune system. You can lessen the spread of warts by discouraging picking or scratching.
