Possible wart on thumb-1

Doctor: HelloThank you posting your query on ATD.Warts are common to occur on fingers.A wart is a small, rough growth res embling a cauliflower or a solid blister. It typically occurs on humans’ hands or feet. Warts are caused by a viral infection, specifically by one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV).I have seen your picture.wart is quite similar to ‘Periungual wart’, a cauliflower-like cluster of warts that occurs around the nails.It is possible to get warts from others; they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin. They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur.Salicylic acid skin patches may be applied daily for a week to reduce the wart.Please consult your doctor for treatment.Wish you a good health!
