What Causes Warts

warts are the result of the hpv virus!

You came to notice one day that you have a little bump on your skin and after doing a bit of research, found out that the little thing is called a wart.

At times the virus may stay dormant inside a person and still can be transmitted to others without any signs  from the person transmitting the virus

Once the virus has entered the blood stream, depending on the immunity system of the host, it may show up on the hands shortly after contamination then the virus may slowly spread towards other parts of the body.

If however, the host has never been exposed to the human papilloma virus and is not immuned to it, the virus can spread throughout the body.
