About Warts at Jeff Alexander M.D. Dermatology
While non-cancerous, warts can still be an unsightly and frustrating skin condition. Warts are small, raised skin growths caused by a virus transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. Children and young adults are most at risk of developing warts, though they are generally not dangerous and only aesthetically dissatisfying. Many common warts will disappear on their own after a few weeks, however treatment and removal is available at Skin Care Institute for those who may desire a swift solution.
