HPV: Not enough information. Speak to health care worker for more information. In general, HPV vaccine covers the most common ones, and is very effective if taken BEFORE exposure.

What causes warts?

What causes warts?

Skin virus: Warts are caused by a slow-growing skin virus. They are contagious (although not as much as a cold), so if someone with a wart on their foot walks barefoot on the ground and you walk in the same place, you can get them. If you think you have one, have your Dr. take a look. ...Read more
