Warts Treatment at Swinyer Woseth Dermatology
If you’re dealing with the discomfort of a plantar wart on your foot or the unsightly appearance of a wart on your fingers, Swinyer Woseth Dermatology offers industry-leading wart treatment methods to resolve discomfort and remove the wart.
What Causes Warts?
Warts are caused by a virus, and they are contagious. A wart is a skin growth caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are many strains of HPV, but when it comes to warts, HPV causes an infection in the top layer of skin, resulting in rapid growth that forms a wart.
What Do Warts Look Like?
Warts commonly appear on hands and feet. However, they can be found on other areas of the body as well. They are typically rough in texture, brown or gray in color, and dome-shaped or flat but raised slightly from the skin. Different types of warts may vary in size and color and may have additional growths on them depending on the strain of the virus.
Treatment for Warts
Seventy percent of warts will spontaneously go away on their own within two years, as the body’s immune system is the only true cure for warts. Dermatological treatments for warts simply aid the immune system, so the body will recognize the virus and eradicate it. For this reason, it often takes several treatments before warts can be fully resolved.
Treating Your Wart With Swinyer Woseth Dermatology
There are several available treatments for warts, such as freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen, cautery, topical treatments, and injection drug therapy. When you consult with our experts, we will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine which treatment option will be most effective in your unique case.
Preventing New Warts
There are several ways to reduce the risk of contracting new warts. We recommend the following preventative measures:
- Do not scratch or pick at existing warts to avoid the spread of the virus
- Do not touch someone else’s warts
- Keep your feet dry, as warts are more likely to grow in areas of moisture
- Wear proper footwear in public common areas such as pools, showers, or locker rooms
