Have them checked out by a dermatologist. If they are small, they can be removed by application of a keratolytic solution. Otherwise, it will have to be cauterized. Either way, the doctor will have to check them out first.

yup! you are right in saying that there are two kind of warts; the "flat ones and the bulging ones".
warts can also be classified:
as to its shape: cauliflower-like, pedunculated, flat, protuberant
as to its location: on the sole of your feet (plantar), on the private parts area (genital), hands, face
as to its texture: soft or crusty
as to its color: skin colored, red, black
one thing is constant though, they are contagious and should be treated before other lesions or warts develop further. topical wart medications can help treat these lesions. currently, salicylic acid is the main ingredient used to exfoliate warts. more resistant warts are otherwise subjected to burning (electrocauterization), freezing (cryosurgery) or laser treatment.
