Causes and Cures for Common Warts

An extreme closeup of a nasty wart.
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!

Dear Dish-It in the forums

Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
