What are palm warts?
Palm warts are small rough, grainy skin growths often found on the hands. They might also have tiny black dots (formed by clotted blood vessels). Common warts are noncancerous and usually caused by a viral infection of the skin. The cause is a virus called human papillomavirus. There are many variations of the virus. The one that causes warts on the hands is not the same as those in other parts of the body.
Some people think palm warts are malignant, but they are harmless. Most warts go away without any treatment. The cause might be that the immune system is weak due to various reasons. However, in palmistry, many see these warts as something other than a skin infection.
See your doctor about warts on the palm if:
- They are painful or change in appearance.
- You’ve tried to treat them, and they continue or spread.
- They interfere with activities.
- You aren’t sure if they’re common warts.
Palm Warts in hand analysis
In hand analysis, warts show anxiety and self-criticism. Warts can appear on the palms due to long-term stress and emotional and mental overload; things might be out of control for the person. A small white or pale spot, like a bubble, has the same connotation as a wart on the palm.

Other things to look for about the health from the hands
It’s always good to check for other signs on the hands in case there are health concerns. Fingernails can give clues to some of these problems. When looking for clues to the health through the nails, we apply the same principles as for the hands, which is to find something unusual.
A nail usually takes six months to grow from the root to tip so some markings can be timed based on where it is on the nail. As an example, a horizontal ridge halfway along the nail would suggest a change around three months ago. A typical healthy nail is pliable; it has a smooth texture; an average thickness and the colour of the nail is typically light pink. The moons should be milky white, and usually only visible on the thumb. See about the fingernails here.
A delicate textured hand should have matching smooth looking nails. If the nails are coarse on a soft hand, the healthy balance is out of proportion. The coarse nail is usually short dry and dense, more commonly seen on a big hand with rough skin.
The nailbed that’s red mainly points to someone with intense passion or extra strength. Very red nails can be due to high blood pressure, bad temper or cardiovascular disease. Look at the colour of the palms to see if they too are red. If so, the subject may be doing everything in excess, mentally or physically.
Colour of the palms
We check the colour of the hands looking for clues to the health of the individual. The colour is what shows the circulation of the blood or lack of it. The blood runs through the veins and arteries, it absorbs and carries away impurities, renewing and maintaining life.
The pink palm has a healthy amount of blood flowing and is the mark of health. This colour depicts a vibrant, happy person; not pressured by too much blood, nor weakened by too little. These people can appreciate love and tenderness. They are optimistic, enjoy life and are social with people around them. It is the colour that balances the negative aspects of the hand.
PALE (WHITE) HANDS: The white hand shows coldness, a lack of warmth, life and desirability. Rather than be social, pleasant and comfortable, they have no interest in pleasing others. The blood does not reach the skin in an adequate amount, which comes from the muscularly weak heart. White-handed people lack enthusiasm and passion for love. However, they are imaginative and mystical. Many have an active mind which makes good litterateurs as a poet or prose writers.
RED HANDS: The redness of the hands comes from the force of the blood flow. It shows intensity in everything they do, whether business, art, love or war. They may find it hard to exercise self-control because the mind is blocked in its action by forceful blood. They show activity in the body and mind to the extreme. If only on the fingertips, the brain is active. If only on the inner Mars mount, they are feeling angry or anxious about something.
