Wart Removal

Warts are caused by the human wart virus and often affect hands and feet. Other types can affect delicate skin and mucosal areas, and flat warts can occur virtually anywhere. Warts are very common in children and young adults, and most eventually go away without treatment.

Usually warts will disappear without requiring treatment.

To remove warts, we might use one of several methods. Mechanical destruction of warts can be accomplished by freezing, blistering, physically removing, or burning. Immune system related removal can be attempted with oral cimetidine, and/or topical fluorouracil, imiquimod, and other compounds.
