Warts are cause by human papillomavirus (HPV). These rough growths can be painful and unsightly. They are contagious and also very persistent. The most effective way to treat warts is by allowing your dermatologist to physically remove them. A number of over the counter creams and ointments exist, however they are not as effective as professional dermatological methods, such as cryotherapy, or electrodesiccation.
