Understanding warts - Blame a virus, NOT toads!
While warts can go away on their own over time, they may be visible and cause embarrassment. Sometimes, if they are on an area of the skin that rubs against clothing, they can become painful. Removal is something that is discussed with dermatologists after an evaluation. There are times when a dermatologist may perform a biopsy on a skin growth to confirm a diagnosis of an HPV wart.

Treatment options available at the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery include:
  • Shave Removal - removal by cutting warts from the skin
  • Cryotherapy - freezing the warts
  • Salicylic acid - soften and thin out warts, usually used on the feet
  • Curettage - scraping of the wart while the patient has local anesthetics administered for comfort
  • Cantharidin - an ingredient used to blister warts for removal at a later visit
