Warts are basically caused by ‘Human Papilloma Virus’ also called the HPV. This virus infects the skin’s outer layer and causes the benign growths or warts formation. Normally, warts are of skin color itself which is rough while you stroke them, however they could also be smooth and possibly dark. Warts are passed commonly indirectly from a person to the other without their knowledge.
