A wart, verruca vulgaris, is a viral infection of the epidermal cells caused by human papilloma virus, hpv.
There are about 30 kinds of hpv, which can only be distinguished by special testing. Some warts occur on the genital, some on the feet, others face. Some nonprescription wart meds are mild acids that try to burn the wart away, and them may work in your case. Others need treatment by a docto.
