Where Can You View Photos of Facial Warts?

The websites for Dermnet, American Family Physician and Mayo Clinic all have photos of facial warts as of 2015. Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, according to MedlinePlus. This virus is common and has more than 150 subtypes that cause various types of warts, claims American Family Physician.

The American Family Physician website has an article on warts versus molluscum contagiosum eruptions through which users find pictures of facial and other warts. This resource shows how doctors pare a plantar wart and how this helps them to differentiate between warts, corns and calluses. The article also discusses various treatment methods.

Dermnet has 27 different categories for pictures of warts, including common warts, flat warts, oral warts and plantar warts. Warts on a face appear in an informational piece published by Mayo Clinic. These flat warts usually occur on the face or legs, and the infection that produces this type of wart is more common in children than in adults.

Warts are generally small, painless and harmless growths on the skin, according to MedlinePlus. Most of these growths feature round or ovular shapes with a raised, rough surface. Treatments include over-the-counter medications and pads, prescription medications, cryotherapy, electrocautery, laser treatment and immunotherapy.
