Warts are small bumps that can show up on your hands, face or even on the bottom of your feet. They can show up on the skin around and under your nails, too. They might hurt. They also might make the nail look weird.

If you have warts around or under your nails, it would be a good idea to ask your parents to take you to see a skin doctor (dermatologist), who can treat them.
