What are all these warts i'm getting from? Lately I am getting warts all over my body. I have one on the side of my heel, on the side of my nose, under my breasts, on my thighs, and in my armpits. I am 5'2" and overweight (220 pounds) i freeze the warts o

First, : First, are you certain these things are warts and not something else? I ask, because while it's possible to get warts anywhere, they don't typically pop-up all over the body like you're describing. But, for the purpose of answering your question, we'll assume you're correct and they are, indeed, warts. Warts are a virus. The virus only affects the upper most layer of skin, the epidermis. To get a wart, you need 3 things: 1. You need to be exposed to the wart virus. You had to have touched something or someone with a wart to get it. 2. You need some kind of break in the skin for the virus to invade. Since warts only affect the outer layer of skin, you don't have to step on a needle or anything to get a wart. A simple little crack from dry skin is enough for the virus to get in. 3. (and this is the most important factor) you need to be susceptible to the virus. Not everyone is susceptible, and not all body parts are equally susceptible. And susceptibility changes over time. In general, the palms and soles are the most susceptible, but it's possible to get a wart anywhere. Also, in general, adolescents tend to be the most susceptible. It's not impossible for an adult or an infant to get a wart, it's just not as common as people between the ages of 8 and 20. There are many, many treatments for warts. Any time in medicine you see a lot of treatments for one problem, it means we really don't have one best way to treat it. Warts can be stubborn and unpredictable. Considering the odd way in which you seem to be coming down with these things, the best thing to do is stop using the freeze thing you bought, and go see a dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more
