Warts on the feet are called "Plantar Warts" or "Plantar Verruca" while warts on the hands are referred to as "Palmer Warts". They're caused by a virus and can appear anywhere on the skin. Children, especially teenagers, tend to be more susceptible to warts than adults and some people seem to be immune to warts altogether. Statics say that 25% of the population has a wart or warts at any given time and 1/3 of children in primary school have them. You may wonder why children are more susceptible to warts. Well, there are really two reasons why kids get warts more often than adults. The first is that kids are more likely to be exposed to the virus that causes them in the first place which is also highly contagious. Second, children's' immune systems are generally less developed than those of adults, and they may not have built up an adequate defense against various types of Human Papillomavirus or HPV.

In today’s program, Dr. Reminga reveals interesting information that could be helpful to those suffering with warts on the hands or feet. Dr. Reminga advises what to look for as well as what treatments are effective and what treatments to avoid. Find out more about Plantar and Palmer Warts in this episode of Your Feet Your Health.
