The first thing I want to emphasize is that you don't have to be warts-free to experience benefits from this remedy. What Are Warts? Warts are harmless (sometimes even beneficial) bumps of the skin that grow in response to the presence of certain things in the environment. Warts are caused by certain bacterial infections and can be easily treated by using antibiotics. If you have a wart, you probably notice that you are more sensitive to light than usual. Warts can be painful or even cause your skin to itch. They are also caused by a virus. Although they can be treated, they usually need a lot of follow up to be fully cured. Warts are a common condition. They are more common in children than adults, but can affect people of all ages. Warts can be on your forehead, back of the neck, or elsewhere on your body. The main type of warts is called lichen planus. The term lichen planus means "pigmented" and "plagued". The growth of the warts can be controlled by medication. The treatment for lichen planus usually involves the use of topical medications such as corticosteroids and salicylic acid.
What are the symptoms of warts? Most of the time, warts appear only when the skin is irritated or has become irritated.
