Warts are contagious and may be passed from individual to individual directly or indirectly. Wart takes several months to grow large from the first point of contact. Some individuals have antibodies against the wart virus. Wart virus occur more easily if the skin has a cut or abrasion. Therefore, children have a higher frequency of warts.
Recurrent of Warts
Wart can often reoccur. This may be because the old warts have shed viruses in the surrounding skin before they were treated. The best way to limit this is to treat new warts as soon as possible before they develop and shed the virus to surrounding areas of the skin.
