Thanks for your query.

Warts are caused by some types of the virus called the human papilloma virus (HPV). Wart treatment does not always work, because most treatments destroy the wart but do not kill the virus that causes the wart. This is why your case is common, with reoccurring after electrosurgery.

However, warts are harmless, will not become harmful and will probably go away on its own. Research shows that they typically disappear after a few months but can last for years.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
