As you sink your feet into the warm sand, you may have noticed some blemishes. "Are those warts?"

Warts are caused by viruses that invade our skin cells and change their morphology. Expert inspection is needed to differentiate this from non-contagious skin ailments such as nucleated hyperkeratoses. Warts usually have tiny brown or black dots and hurt more when squeezed from the sides than with direct pressure.
