These warts can occur anywhere and have a surface that is firm, raised, and roughly textured. They are most commonly found on your fingers, knuckles, knees, elbows, and other places where broken skin is common.
These warts are found on the soles of your feet, toes, or heels. They usually grow inward due to the pressure of your body weight. When a group of plantar warts develops in a cluster they’re called mosaic warts. Most warts are usually painless, although plantar warts can cause pain on the soles of your feet.
These warts lie flat against the skin and are smooth and round. They’re also called flat warts and tend to develop on areas of your skin that get the most sun exposure.
Genital warts are a type of sexually transmitted disease caused by several strains of the HPV virus. They can develop in any genital area. You can catch or spread genital warts through any form of sexual contact, including oral sex or intimate touching. Unlike other types of warts, genital warts can be incredibly uncomfortable. They can cause burning or itching sensations and can lead to pain during sex.
These warts have a longer, thin shape, and are often found on your armpits, neck, and eyelids.
