Warts are small bumps on the skin caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). They come in all shapes and sizes. Warts are very common in children, and in most cases they are harmless. Children are not always known for leaving these warts alone however, and when scratched or picked at, warts have a tendency to spread. Depending on where the warts spread to, they can become more difficult for your doctor to treat. Sometimes it is better to have warts treated rather than wait and see if they go away on their own.
