The human papilloma virus, commonly known as HPV, causes warts in several places of the body. The warts can vary in size, shape and color. They are also extremely contagious and can spread to others easily. One of the most embarrassing kinds of warts are the ones that appear on the face. Facial warts are flat and pink. They can easily become infected, especially if nicked while shaving. Warts can easily be treated at home.
