Are Warts Contagious?

Yes, Warts are a contagious virus that thrives in dark, wet areas such as pools, locker rooms, and showers. The wart virus enters your skin through small cracks in the skin, which is why you should always wear shoes. If someone in your household has a wart, you should clean the shower or bathtub after each use.

If you or a family member have a wart, you should be seen by a doctor immediately. Warts can be very frustrating to treat. The longer you wait to have a wart treated, the longer the treatment process.
