Warts are a very common dermatological problem. They’re unsightly, uncomfortable and embarrassing. If you’re suffering from warts, you should know that professional wart removal is an option.
Warts are tiny skin growths that usually occur on the hands, fingers and feet. They are rough to the touch and often feel grainy. In some cases, little black dots may appear, which are actually tiny blood clots.
Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are spread through direct contact with HPV, meaning they are contagious.
Warts can be treated in a number of ways. Although there is no pill for warts, wart removal is the next best step. At Mendelson Dermatology, in Phoenix, we treat warts through a process known as cryotherapy, which involves using liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart, causing it to fall off and new skin to grow in its place. Topical glycolic acid or cautery can also be used.
Our wart removal process is simple, relatively painless and most of all, effective. While warts can be removed with an over-the-counter kit, we highly recommend coming to our Phoenix dermatology office for professional treatment.
