Do warts itch?
I just recently discovered a bump on my hand near my thumb that is slightly hard and itches. My sister believes it to be a wart but i didn`t think warts itched. do they?
Warts can become inflamed or irritated and may itch. Have your primary care physician or dermatologist evaluate it. If it is a wart, it most likely can be easily treated. Clearly, if it grows or changes, it should be evaluated.
