Warts are embarrassing growths caused by various strains of the Human Papilloma Virus or HPV. They can be extremely stubborn and frustrating to treat. Most patients start with over-the-counter salicylic acid treatments such as Mediplast. However, they still may take months or years to resolve and can also spread to other parts of the body.
