Warts develop a wide range of sizes and appearances. It could be a bump with a rough surface, or may be smooth and flat. Miniscule blood vessels grow in to the core of the wart to supply it blood. By and large, warts are painless. Occasionally, in certain cases, a wart may get painful.
There are many ways of getting rid of armpit warts. You can choose either surgical or non-surgical options. If you decide to have surgery on your armpit warts, it is a quick and relatively painless procedure.
