What Are Warts?
A wart is a small solid growth with a rough surface that typically appears on the hands (hand warts), or feet. Warts are caused by viruses, especially HPV type (human papilloma virus) that causes an infection in which the top layer of the skin grows too fast.
A factor that increases the likelihood of developing a wart is broken skin, where the virus can enter the top layer of the skin through scratches or cuts.
The virus that causes warts can be spread to other body parts passed through skin-to-skin contact or contact with towels or shoes. It is therefore best to treat warts as soon as they appear.
You can use over-the-counter products to treat warts, or visit a dermatologist that can perform wart or skin tag treatment and removal techniques, but you can also treat these two with hydrogen peroxide.
An important note is that before you attempt to remove skin growth at home, you need to know that you are removing skin tags or warts – which are benign conditions – and not a mole or any other lesionthat can be malignant. Therefore what you are trying to remove should have been previously diagnosed by a health professional as a harmless skin tag and not something else.

Hydrogen peroxide is a natural astringent and bleaching agent that can be purchased in varying concentrations. It can be used for many purposes, including whitening teeth, treating toenail fungus, and removing difficult stains from surfaces while disinfecting.
