Warts are found in many different places around the world.
The most common wart location is the neck of the scalp or trunk. Many people have warts on the face, feet, armpits, chest, back, or abdomen. Warts can also appear on the hands or face, but only rarely. Warts are caused by two types of bacteria, Candida albicans and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Candida albicans is the most common type of wart and is found in the mouth and rectum. Warts are usually present on the scalp, but the wart can appear anywhere on the body. Warts are commonly caused by a bacterial infection called Candida. The wart will develop when a person with Candida is exposed to high concentrations of bacteria. Candida infection is common in adults over the age of 30, but can be found in children as young as 3-4 years. Warts are contagious. A person can spread an infection from the wound or from touching the wound to another person. The infection can spread to others through the air or water. Warts are caused by a yeast called Candida albicans. The yeast grows in the hair follicles and creates a coating in the skin called a scab. The fungus can be identified by a scab or the appearance of a yellow or white crust.
