Woe is Warts: Tell that to a wart.And hey,there can theoretically be little teeny weeny cracks in the skin you can't see.But,those virus warts like to live in the superficial skin layer (the "epidermis")and can get their grubby claws in there with or without a break in the skin.What helps them along is moisture,and you can't get more moist than a cervix; they also like soft skin, like on your ----. Get treated!
