What do warts look like?


Warts can appear as small, rough, and raised growths on the skin. They may be round or irregular in shape and can vary in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters. Warts can be flesh-colored, pink, or brown and may have tiny black dots on the surface, which are clotted blood vessels.

Common warts usually occur on the hands, fingers, or elbows, while plantar warts occur on the soles of the feet. Flat warts are smaller and smoother and can occur on the face, neck, or legs. Genital warts are caused by a different type of virus and appear as flesh-colored or gray bumps in the genital area or anus.

It’s important to note that not all skin growths are warts, and if you are uncertain about a skin growth, it is best to have it checked by a medical professional.
