What are Skin Warts?
Warts are small, noncancerous growths that appear on the skin due to infection with the Human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus triggers extra cell growth that causes the outer layer of skin over the area to become thick and hard.
Warts can occur anywhere but are most common on knuckles, fingers, elbows, knees, or any area with broken skin. They are stony hard, and white.
Who Gets Them?
Not everyone who comes in contact with HPV will get a wart. If you cut or damage your skin in some way, it is easier for the virus to take hold. This is the reason, people with chronic skin conditions like eczema, or who bite their nails or pick at hangnails are more prone.
Do they spread?
Warts are highly contagious. They are transmitted by direct skin contact (when you pick at the wart and then touch another area of your body). It can also spread through towels or razors. Warts like moist, and soft or injured skin.
How is the diagnosis confirmed?
Usually, the diagnosis of a wart is made on a clinical basis. However, a biopsy can be done to confirm it.
What are the treatment options available?
Warts can be bothersome and unattractive, most people want to get rid of them as soon as possible. Two main treatment options are:
- Salicylic acid solution: which is put on the wart several times a day for a few weeks to gradually dissolve it. They are simple treatment options but one has to be consistent with applying these solutions. They are weakly acidic that is enough to burn the top layer of the wart. They may also cause skin irritations.
- Cryotherapy: involves freezing the wart by applying liquid nitrogen. It works on the principle of thermal damage and destroys the cell in the skin’s outer layer.
Are there any other treatment options?
At Renew Skin and Health Clinic Limited, we treat the wart slightly differently. We have two modalities of treatment:
- Ablative Laser treatment: with CO2 Laser. They are suitable for young adults or older people. Injections are to be given before the procedure. It has the advantage of a single-visit treatment. ‘You come to us with the wart, and you can go home without it’.
Healing usually occurs in 7 days. When it heals, there is a complete restoration of the skin crease, texture, and quality.
- Pulsed dye laser: for children as they are painless, gentler procedure.
Sometimes, warts can be notorious, they tend to come back and are resistant to any forms of treatment. At our Clinic, we also treat these recalcitrant warts.
Disclaimer: Skin Warts removal treatment varies from person to person.
