Warts are typically small, rough, and raised bumps on the skin that can appear anywhere on the body. The first signs of warts may include:
- Small, raised bumps on the skin that may be white, pink, or brown in color
- Rough, uneven texture on the surface of the skin
- A round or oval shape
- Pain or tenderness when touched, particularly if the wart is on a weight-bearing area like the foot
- Appearance of tiny black dots or “seeds” within the wart, which are actually clotted blood vessels feeding the wart
It’s important to note that not all warts have visible signs or symptoms. In some cases, warts may not cause any discomfort or change in the appearance of the skin. If you suspect you may have a wart, it’s best to consult with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
