Viral warts are small, rough, raised lesions that sometimes appear on your skin and are caused by a common type of virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV). When you come into contact with the virus, it can enter your body through tiny cuts or breaks in your skin. These warts can show up almost anywhere on your body, like your hands, face, nails, scalp, even your genitals.
These are infectious, and can spread from one site to other, or to another person. In cases of low immunity, you can have multiple warts on body.
