Common warts are benign growths that typically take the form of small, grainy, raised areas of skin that tend to occur on the fingers or hands, although they can sometimes occur elsewhere as well. These warts have a rough feel to them, and may also have a visible pattern of tiny black dots. While most warts are the same color as the surrounding skin, some may have a darker tone.
Warts are caused by a virus and transmitted by coming into contact with someone else who has the virus, or an item that has come in contact with a wart, such as a towel. In some cases, the wart may not develop until two to six months after your skin has been exposed to the virus.
Although common warts are often harmless and gradually disappear on their own, many opt to have them removed instead of waiting.
