There are a few different types of warts you can get, and they all look a bit different. The one way you will be able to tell them apart is determining where they are growing on your body and what they look like. Common warts, or vurruca vulgaris, are the most typical. They can appear on the face and hands. The virus can spread them from one of these place to the other via nail biting or hand contact with the face. These typically grow around the nails and on the backs of the hands. Where skin has recently been broken open is where they will most likely appear.
Foot warts or plantar warts are those that develop on the soles of the feet. These can be very painful as they create pressure points when you are walking. These can be flat and sometimes grow inward. It’s common to see little black dots at the center of these warts.
Flat warts are those that can occur anywhere on the body. Women tend to get these on their legs, while men seem to get them right in the beard area. These are smaller and smoother than most other types of warts. They tend to grow in clusters of twenty to one hundred at a time. You can see more about these at wartrolforwarts.com.
