1. Having Viral warts-Here is Why?

About

Dry skin and itchiness on the surface, which can wet and soften the skin.

As many as 1 in 3 children and teenagers are estimated to have warts, but only 3 to 5 percent of adults. This is probably because the immune system becomes better able to prevent their development over time. [1]

- Requires a medical diagnosis if symptoms persist
- Lab tests are required immediately
- Can happen to anyone
- Mostly contagious

Viral warts are caused by the infection of the human papillomavirus, which is present in the outer layers of the skin. Most of these warts occur in areas that are moist and unwashed. Some of warts can often produce dry skin and itchiness on the surface, which can wet and soften the skin and make it fragile to unforeseen conditions.

Ages affected - Often: between 20-30 years; More often: between 30-40 years; Fewer: 40+ years
