Your age. Warts occur most often
in children and young adults. As you get older, you
may find that you get fewer warts or your warts go away. Warts are less common
among older people, perhaps because people develop immunity to human
papillomaviruses over time.
Risk factors you can control
Try to avoid the
following risk factors:
Walking barefoot on moist surfaces, as in
public showers, locker rooms, and around swimming pool
Sharing towels, razors, and other personal items with a
person who has warts.
Touching warts on yourself or someone
Biting your nails or cuticles.
Wearing closed or
tight shoes that cause sweaty feet.
