Causes and Cures for Common Warts

You don't just find them on the faces of dirty old witches and you don't get them from kissing frogs or toads. Warts are caused by a virus, just like cold sores and they can pop up on anyone.

What Are They?

Warts are small bumbs of hardened skin. They can show up anywhere on the body, but you'll usually find them on your hands, feet or face. Kids get them more often than adults do - but some kids never get any warts at all. Warts don't usually hurt but they can look pretty nasty.

How Do You Get 'Em?

You can get warts by catching a certain virus - just like catching a cold or the flu. This wart virus shows up in moist places on your skin - like small cuts or scratches around your hands or feet. You can pick up the virus very easily by touching a towel or face cloth that someone with a wart has used. They can also spread if you keep scratching them - whether they're on your own body or someone elses.

More info about the kinds of warts you can get, and how you can get rid of 'em - right here!

At home I tend to talk a LOT, but  the complete opposite at school, this is the reason I have little to no friends, I used to have a best friend but she moved.

Dear Friend, I am really sad about your matter. Ignore them. Yes, I do understand your feelings. You care for your family, everyone does. But Family isn't always right. If you pay attention to them you may get addicted to alc*hol too. It's normal for every person to care for their family, kith and kin. But not every person whom you care is good. I am totally not talking anything bad about your mom or you sister. But I've experienced this in my own family. Hope my message helped you out. It was a pleasure to help you out :) Thanks, Siyali (Delancy)

I grew up around violence, dr*gs and alc*hol and my mum was always fighting and on dr*gs she stopped ages ago but still drink's sometimes and these days I still think she is doing dr*gs still. My sister is addicted to dr*gs (but I wont' say what kind ) and is using them nearly every day. I know I shouldn't be getting into my mum's/sisters business but I am really worried. The other day we went and picked up my sister (who is 22 just to let you know) to go and get something for here down the street and before she got out of the car she said to my mum have u got any dot and I knew what it meant I am really worried about them and don't know what to do.
