Wortie is fast, safe and effective

Key characteristics

-    Warts are benign skin growths caused by the HPV virus that cause a dome-shaped keratin growth often          with a mosaic pattern.
-    It may be hard to get rid of warts after they develop. But they generally disappear spontaneously within          months or years.
-    Warts can grow anywhere on the body, though they most often appear on hands and feet. They are most        common among school aged children  and young adults.
-    Plantar warts (verrucas) can be pushed beneath the skin’s surface by pressure from standing and walking.      A thickening of the skin slowly forms over most of the wart and looks and feels like callus.


How many people suffer from warts?

-    74 per cent of them had common warts
-    24 per cent of them had verrucas
