    Warts are non-serious skin growths caused by a virus that infects the top layer of the skin. They are contagious.

    You should visit your primary care physician, who will check your skin and look at the size, shape, color, and texture of any suspicious areas. From there, treatment will be determined, such as surgical excision, photodynamic therapy, or imiquimod cream.
