What causes warts on the legs?

In addition to women who shave their legs, children are especially at risk for leg warts. People who pick at their hangnails, bite their nails or have weaknesses in the immune system are more likely to develop warts. In children, warts frequently disappear without any treatment, but those that hurt, spread rapidly or cause discomfort require treatment, as stated by American Academy of Dermatology.
