It can be very easy to contract a wart: just go to public places and wet areas such as swimming pools and gym locker rooms. Coming into contact with objects that have been used by a person who has a wart is the simplest way of getting one. Towels and shower mats are among the most common carriers.
There are 5 methods that can be used to eliminate a wart:
Cryotherapy is generally not recommended for children, as it may be difficult for a child to remain in the same position throughout the treatment.
The specific products found in pharmacies contain active ingredients that destroy keratin, the material of which the wart is made up of.

Consult a doctor if the wart increases in size and is particularly painful.
