What is a Wart?
Warts are a common skin condition usually seen on the hands, fingers, and near the nails. They generally look like small, fleshy peas but may differ in size. It is also common for warts to develop in groups near the knees and elbows. Warts are caused by HPV, otherwise known as the human papillomavirus. Although warts are harmless for the most part, they may be unsightly and bothersome. Store-bought wart removal treatments are usually not strong enough, which is why Dr. Travis James provides wart removal at his office in Providence, UT. When you have a wart or other skin growth you want to be removed, schedule a consultation with Dr. James at Providence Dermatology.
What are Treatment Options for Wart Removal?
Even after your first therapy, warts may reoccur so it is necessary to get the best treatment to minimize future outbreaks. Freezing a wart is a common treatment and can be done with success. With this method, Dr. James applies liquid nitrogen to the wart. A blister will form around it and the dead tissues will fall off in a week. Another option is applying cantharidin, a substance that can cause skin redness when applied to a wart. This chemical is applied to the skin to create a blister around the wart — it's a popular therapy since the application causes little to no pain. Burning (electrosurgery) or freezing with cryotherapy may also be used, in addition to curetting (scraping) or excising (cutting) the wart. Laser treatments, chemical peels, immunotherapy, or bleomycin injections are also used for treatment when the wart is hard to remove.
